Juror's are the judges of both law and fact.

    If anyone ever hears this from even one judge, I would start to believe in miracles.

    Under the current occupying statiist theocracies system, their canonized dogmas and presupposed politically correct outcomes reign supreme (they have more destructive means and well armed mercenaries than do the Constitutionally / law abiding freemen). The supreme socialist(s), i.e., the ruling gods allow no other philosophies, religions, or natural law to interfere with their destruction of freedom, liberty, inalienable rights and justice. By the laws of nature and of nature's God, each and every, any and all individuals are sovereign with the inalienable right to determine fact and law, in the dispensing of justice ! ! ! In the de jure "We The People's" judicial system, the individual's hired servants (now replaced by priestly robed magistrates, pastorily mis-dubbed honor - judges) are employed only to maintain decorum (order, rules of criminal / civil procedure, etc.)
