I received a jury duty survey the other day. I would guess that being a card-carrying Libertarian would probably keep me from serving as a juror on a drug case. Other than that, I really do look forward to serving on a jury.
I believe that jury duty should be a civic obligation contingent on whether or not one chooses to vote. When a person votes, that person is expressing a preference on who should enact new laws. Since it is more important to enforce existing laws than it is to pass new laws, a person who chooses to vote must also be willing to serve on a jury.
Having said that, if anyone out there wishes to decrease their odds of being picked for a jury, simply do the following:
1. Go to www.lp.org and become a member today.
2. Vote Libertarian. A libertarian society would mean fewer laws, and thus fewer criminal trials involving juries.
