Happy New Year Everybody!  Out with the old and in with the new.

I am starting the new year off with a series of talks across the state of Florida.    I will be attending Freedom group meetings, Libertarian Party meetings, and college campus groups, Young Americans for Liberty and Students for Liberty are all on my li.

I was invited to the Lee County Libertarians meeting by Millie Harvey to talk about FIJA and Jury Nullification.   The group was very lively and very eager to learn what power an individual has when they serve on a jury.   My presentation covered how the founders had written into the constitution trial by jury, and how Thomas Jefferson had written to Thomas Paine in 1789 saying:

I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution.

I explained to the group how to survive Voir dire, and to vote with their conscience, because  it only takes one person to hang a jury.

The group fully enjoyed the presentation. Three of the members said that they were now going to get active outside the county courthouse in Lee County.  I gave them some brochures to get them started, and told them how they can either print them off, or oder them off the website.

It was a great night, I met a great bunch of people who are now ready to spread the message of  Jury Veto Power!
