Too often the American people forget that every single person in government, at all levels; local, state, and federal; they all work for you.
They are your employees. You are the boss.
The jury system is just one example of how the people are in charge in this country and we only supposed to answer to each other, not the government.
Government was born into slavery under the Constitution but unfortunately, we have lots of traitors in and out of government trying to set it free upon the people (even more than it already is).
