Jury Duty

I was just reading an article about jury duty in my local paper. It got me thinking about a book I feel should be a must read for every United States citizen, The Citizens Rule Book. The book explains jury duty and why we have jury trials. It goes into your rights as a juror. "The jury has a right to judge both the law as well as the fact in a controversy", John Jay 1st Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, 1789. That's sure not what we were told during jury instructions the last time I was called to serve. We were told we were only to judge the facts in the case. The book also contains the Ten Commandments, and a summary of the Communist Manifesto, looks to me like most of the ten planks of Communism are in place in this country now. Some of our Founding Documents are also in this book, that means it's a great tool to carry to meetings with your elected officials.

You can read the Citizens Rule Book on-line at, . You can also find out how to get printed copies at that link. The printed copies are small enough to fit into your shirt pocket and they are inexpensive which makes them great for hand outs to Scouts and Church Youth groups.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

That definitely sounds like a good book to give a read. There's no better way to protect yourself from public official BS than with a copy of the "rules" on hand. Cheers!

Jury service is one of the most important civic duties that any individual can perform. The protection of rights and liberties in federal courts largely is achieved through the teamwork of a judge and jury.
