"If a juror acepts as law that which the judge states, then that juror has accepted the excercise of absolute authority of a government employee and has surrendered a power and a right that once was the Citizens safeguard of liberty,--For the saddest epitaph which can be carved in memory of a vanished liberty is it was lost because it's possessors failed to stretch forth a saving hand while yet there was time." Elliots Debates, 94, Bancroft, History of the Constitution,267, .
Attorney-at-Law Thomas J. Devine of Houston, Texas says that, "The American Judicial System is a scam, a fraud and an organized extortion racket." The supreme law of the land is not what supreme Court judges say it is, but what the Constitution says. Any thing that judges [including those of the supreme court] say that is contrary to the Constitution, is null and void. However, because they constitute the worst organized-crime organization, backed by government guns, judges get away with their corruption.
"It is not only the jurors right, but his duty to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgement, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court." America's second president John Adam, 1771 Yale law journal, 1964: 173.
They say we are a nation of laws, not men. 60 years ago Germany said the same thing. At Nuremburg German soldiers said they were only obeying government orders and they were told by Americans they should have obeyed their conscience, not their government. Yet, today the American jury's are told to follow the law as given by government judge, not their conscience.
It has been said that today the judges are for the most part, lawyers wearing black robes. With few a exceptions they are the worst criminals.
Government finds it very difficult to govern honest people. However they have the power to create laws that makes criminals out of honest people and extort money from the people by accusing them of breaking government laws [rules]. They create these laws by the thousands so it is impossible for the people to move about daily without breaking government laws [rules], there by fineing the people millions of dollars daily for their transgressions.
To maintain this power to extort money from We The People the government has over the past 100 years concealed this right of the people to defend their friends and neighbors from government oppression. As late as March of 2005, The Judiciary Committee in Augusta voted unaminously voted to conceal this RIGHT from the people of Maine, thereby not allowing the rest of the legislature the opportunity to even vote on the bill. The only reason given was the people were not intelligent or responsible enough to handle this knowledge.
The Judiciary Committee well knows, you can only use your power if you know about it, and if you do not know about it you have no rights.
It would be very interesting to know the past history of this committee. How many restrictive laws did they vote to pass, and how many laws did they pass to give the people that put them in office the power to use their Constitutional Rights? How many laws are now on the books to control the people? How many more restrictive laws will they pass to create more criminals so they can extort more money from WE THE PEOPLE..?
