People who care about their individual freedoms should make themselves knowledgable about Annulment by Jury - sometimes known as Jury Nullification. It’s a delectable, mouth-watering piece of information that generally flies under the radar. In fact, it’s very hidden information! WARNING: When people first hear about this, it can make people dance madly around their house punching the air in total exultation.
Most people think that a jury’s only purpose is to decide on the guilt of the accused. Oh no! There is a second, more important purpose - and they don’t want you to know this!
It is to decide on the justice of the legislation itself that the accused man has supposedly breached. Did you know that the jury has the power to make a decision on the government’s legislation?

Forget voting in elections. That doesn’t get anywhere close to Annulment! We delve into this subject on this website a lot! It’s the heart of Common Law.
Told you you'd enjoy that!
