The Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution may be one of the most important Amendments to the Constitution, as it seems to this author to empower the people to enforce the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, without re-examination by a Court of the United States:
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
The people may form a Grand Jury, deliver a presentment or indictment, and no fact tried by this Grand Jury can be reexamined in a ‘Court of the United States’. Let that sink in, Patriots.
Check the Fully Informed Grand Jury Association for background information and day-to-day actions available to citizens in exercising their Seventh Amendment rights. And this site has excellent information on this subject. As with all the components of the Bill of Rights, we must exercise those rights to preserve them.
One of the earliest advocates for citizen grand juries is Red Beckman. This video is the first in a series of educational lectures by Beckman called ‘Sovereign Solutions’–our next steps for a free people.
