That was a great essay, and I'm inclined to agree with the part about sitting this election out, but jurors, in many counties, are selected from pools of active voters. The courtroom may be a more important place to influence freedom than the ballot box. Bad politicians can write bad laws but liberty-minded jurors can render the laws void if we refuse to convict.

Jay,

I am a big believer in the power of informed jurors.

And I will be voting ... just not for Hillary or Trump. At the end of the essay I encourage people to check out non-privileged parties and vote up/down on ballot initiatives.

I may be doing something entirely different this election. Since my guy never gets in, i'll be voting for the greater of two evils--if I can figure out which one it is... :)
