The Gulf Which Is To Swallow All
The Right to a Trial by a Jury of our Peers is a long established fundamental Right, codified in 1215 through the Magna Carta. Yesterday, through the verdict of the Jury in Oregon acquitting the Malheur protesters, America and the world learned why that Right is so vital to the preservation of Liberty. In a system where the government writes the laws, interprets the laws, enforces the laws, prosecutes the laws, and even sits in judgement of those laws, the only protection for the Liberty of the people is the Trial by Jury. If that system were left unchecked by the jury, the statements of theses government agents tell us exactly what the outcome of that trial would have been:
Governor Kate Brown: “While I respect the jury’s decision, I am disappointed.”
Sheriff David Ward: “While I am disappointed in the outcome…”
Dan Ashe, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service director: “We are profoundly disappointed in the outcome of the trial,”
If judgement were left up to these people we can see that there would be no justice, only slavish submission to government orders. There would be no Right to Protest the government, there would be No Right to Free Speech, and there would be no Liberty.
“This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own. Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech; a Thing terrible to Publick Traytors.” Silence Dogood #8
These people, in their statements, have told us all we need to know about who they are- they are public traitors to Liberty and they are the reason very reason why our Trial by Jury in necessary.
