Juries can stop runaway government. You have the power.

Fully Informed Jury Association

The primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from tyrannical abuses of power by government.

The Constitution guarantees you the right to trial by jury. This means that government must bring its case before a jury of The People if government wants to deprive any person of life, liberty, or property. Jurors can say no to government tyranny by refusing to convict.

The FIJA mission is to educate Americans regarding their full powers as jurors, including their ability to rely on personal conscience, to judge the merit of the law and its application, and to nullify bad law, when necessary for justice, by finding for the defendant.

The Fully Informed Jury Association(FIJA)is a nonpartisan public policy research and education organization located in Helena, Montana. FIJA focuses on issues involving the role of the jury in our justice system and the preservation of the full function of the jury as the final arbiter in our courts of law.

  1. If the health care bill passes and you are fined for not paying for insurance, simply demand a jury trial. I suspect most jurors would vote not guilty. This is a simple way for citizens to prevent unconstitutional abuse by the government.

  2. You are absolutely right Steve. One juror can nullify bad law, without reprisal. This jury nullification has real teeth in it for the people. That is what it was designed for by the founders. The only problem is that people don't know their power. To make this work we don't have to pass any laws, or lobby, or run for office, or spend much money. We just need to educate our neighbors. The best literature I know of on this is at http://www.fija.org
