This madness needs to stop before we are hearing alarms in the street " its time to go inside, police will be monitering the streets, if you are still out past curfew you will be arrested repeat you will be arrested."
FIJA seeks to require that juries be informed of their nullification rights. Informed jury amendments have been filed as an initiative in seven states and legislation has been introduced in the Alaska state legislature.
...the right of juries to judge both the law and the facts -- to nullify the law if it chose -- became part of British constitutional law.
It ultimately became part of American constitutional law as well, but you'd never know it listening to jury instructions today almost anywhere in the country....
Now a remarkable coalition has sprung up to challenge this secrecy as undemocratic, unconstitutional and dangerous. Though organized by libertarian activists, the Fully Informed Jury Amendment movement includes liberals and conservatives...
...many groups in this country feel the government has overstepped its power in some way and that there must be protection for the natural rights of American citizens. They are defending not only the right to protest or carry a gun or not wear seatbelts but challenging the right of the government to decide such matters without the mediating effect of a jury's judgement of fairness in a particular case.
In the many discussions across several states, questions have arisen concerning exactly how the "Tenth Amendment Resolution" will help....
The principal motivation came from the myriad of federal mandates which have been placed and are planned to be placed on the states. State legislatures feel they have little choice but to implement these mostly-unfunded mandates and pass the cost for implementation to the state taxpayers. For most state legislators, this is a very frustrating dilemma.
The Tenth Amendment assures that we, the people of the United States of America and each sovereign state in the Union of States, now have, and have always had, rights the federal government may not usurp. Article IV, Section 4 says, "The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a republican form of government.....", and the Ninth Amendment states that..."The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people".
We have, through apathy and lack of will, allowed federal legislators and bureaucrats to assert their will over us and commandeer our funds for their own use.... most of it today outside the authority granted to them by the Constitution.
When a state passes this resolution proclaiming its sovereignty, that state may then claim exemption to most federal mandates under the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution....
by Colorado State Senator Charles Duke
While 18 of the 50 United States offer their citizens an opportunity to recall their elected officials, it is a fact that in our nation’s history, no federal legislator has yet been recalled.
It has not been for lack of interest. Rather, the process has languished in part due to debates on whether or not legal authority exists for recall of U.S. Senators and Congressmen; and, in the case of Idaho, interference by a state court prevented recall of a federal legislator....
After reviewing the body of law and opinion concerning recall, it is apparent that if recall of federal legislators is to succeed, it will likely only be after an intense battle in the federal court system as to the degree to which the courts will go to allow the literal meaning of the Tenth Amendment to be in force and effect.
As this author reads this language, it appears clear that " the States ‘ and " the people " living with in them, should be recognized to have the right of recall.
But in order to implement a strategy that will enable recall petitions to result in actual removal of errant Senators and Congressmen, considerable legal and political obstacles will present themselves and can only be overcome by understanding the lengths to which those opposed to recall can be expected to go...
Eighteen states have recall provisions. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington, and Wisconsin all have recall of some kind available to their voters. Only seven of these states require any grounds.

Well, you WANTED a godless country, youuuuuuuuuuuuu got it! Now deal with it. Still think you don't need 'God'?
The majority of YOU PEOPLE sit there and talk about the founding fathers, liberty, 'freedom', your 'rights', blah-blah-blah yet, the majority of you don't even know what the ufck you're talking about; especially when it comes to the 'founding fathers'. Maybe you should start there. Do some research on the country you 'love' so much, and then, when you get the REVELATION of it, why don't you get back to what made the good ole USofA 'great'.
The reason why the country is falling by the wayside is easy to see......you're a GOD-LESS country, being ruled by GOD-LESS people. Although, i think i should call them what they are: Luciferian, devil-worshipping, pedophile, sodomites...who hate the God of the founding fathers.
Oh, and someone mentioned about Ron Paul.....hahahahahahahah.....You better elect JESUS! He's the ONLY ONE able to keep them devils and demons off of you, your family, and the land that you 'love' so much. Get back to the basics Americans..."One Nation Under God...INDIVISIBLE!"
"RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTS A NATION"!

so, with that said, what could possibly be the next step for people that are AWAKE to take? Should the non-sheeple leave the country? Leave the system entirely? Go off the grid? Is time really running out for the ones who still have a mind?
