46 Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! For ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
47 Woe unto you! For ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your father's killed them.
48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers; for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and prosecute:
50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
52 Woe unto you, lawyers! For ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
ISAIAH 9: 16
For the leaders of this people cause them to err, and they that are led of them are destroyed.
Sepulchure: A vault for burial; a tomb.
YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
Many people have been lead to believe that the BILL OF RIGHTS, found
in the UNITED
STATES CONSTITUTION, creates a wall between the US Citizens and the US Government
whereby privileges and immunities are guaranteed to all citizens and that the government is
prevented from crossing specific lines when dealing with the citizens who supposedly have
these privileges and immunities described in the BILL OF RIGHTS.
I am one who was also schooled in the thought that these rights were
like a wall between
myself and my government.
An analogy of what the reality is, when standing before the courts,
of what your rights really
are and how to exercise them can be simply stated like this:
You do not have these rights in the sense that they are like a solid wall between you and your government protecting you like a guardian from the evils or errors that your government is capable of and may subject you to.
You do have these rights in the sense that it is your responsibility to not only know what these rights are, but how and when to exercise these rights.
You have these rights in the sense that it is your right to build
this wall between you and your government, but you must:
What many attorneys, in fact, do to their clients is fail to assist you in building a solid wall and allowing your government, and especially the courts, to presume that your rights are zealously guarded by your legal counsel. It is especially true when the courts consider that should there have been any real foundations of fraud, or corruption, when you stand before the court, then it was the duty of your attorney to raise this issue and preserve these issues, for appeal, in the event that the judge disagrees with your evidence.
The fact that the attorney does not raise these issues at all, forever,
creates a presumption
that it was the duty of the attorney to raise these issues and since they were not raised then
the issues must not have had any merit, or the attorney surely would have zealously
performed these duties and obligations. Once the court enters a final court order, these
issues are lost forever, unless you can file a successful claim that your attorney negligently
represented you and failed to do the duties prescribed to attorneys.
Attorneys obey unconstitutional and unwritten court rules that judges impose on attorneys so that judges will not be bothered with these issues and rights when judges and attorneys are especially aware that now is the time to raise these issues, or forever be lost to the accused or the litigant in court. All court rules provide that claims and defenses of frivolous and malicious prosecutions must be made in court, on record, before the judge. The judge does not want to be bothered with your rights and the attorney knows this and complies with the wishes of the judge, not to be subject to the issue on appeal. That is why these issues are rarely raised, in court!
Many people are led to believe they have rights and the law protects
them, which is true.
When the law is applied in equity and impartially, the law can be just, fair and beneficial to an
ordered, yet free society. It is the legal profession that throws these rights away so as not to
inconvenience the courts with your rights. AND THEY GET PAID TO DO THIS
Attorneys are the number two cause and reason for of the erosion
of the rights of the people
when these rights should be exercised before the courts at the time the Constitution
provides your rights should be exercised.
The number one reason your rights have been eroded is your failure
to learn, understand,
exercise and preserve these rights.
Your rights are there, but not in the way you have been lead to believe they are there!
In my opinion the very best legal reform would be for the "people" to learn how to hold attorneys to account! If attorneys had more fear of their clients than they had for judges we could have a fair working legal system. As long as judges have the option of making a case so expensive to litigate that the attorney knows a client will run out of money before the litigation is completed we will continue to have due process by presumption. Apparently the general public finds the current legal system acceptable since there are few "voices" of protest and objection on these very important issues. Injustice is most repulsive when it is received and not when it is observed. The people of this country are really pathetic on this regard and perhaps it is justice when we receive a taste of what we ignore happening to others!
Two specific safeguards we still have as a society, supposedly, ruled
by law and not by
humans is the right to a jury trial and the right to be on a jury.
Those who have attacked the freedoms, privileges, and immunities provided in the US Constitution, they have done so as to undermine two of the most significant functions of our constitution, Jury Instructions to the Jury by the Judge, Jury Pools, Jury Qualification and by allowing the "governed" to become ignorant, or indifferent, to the reasons for having the right to participate and know the processes of the government.
Knowledge of rights, and the function of government, is probably the most important issue that should be precious to citizen's. These functions of our government are taken for granted and most citizen's presume that the wonder of our government is that they can benefit from
all the conveniences offered, such as turning on the light, twisting the faucet for a drink of
water, opening the refrigerator door.
Freedom, to many sleeping humans, means convenience.
Freedom to others means a just government that is fair and applies
the law responsibly,
without prejudice, and a government that takes responsibility for its actions and is held to
account for its negligence and its corruption.
Many argue that the vote is the way these public servants are controlled, or removed.
The law can hold an individual to account for negligence, or criminal
activities. The law also
provides that most public servants are immune from claims of injury for their actions.
Reasoning for this is that the court process is specifically designed to be a fact finding
process and the protections from harm by governmental error, or negligence, is specifically
built into the fact finding process (court rules and rules of evidence) and this process is what
the citizen has to be protected from governmental error and negligence.
The basic protections that have been built into the current system
of legal procedures have
been forgotten by the general public and that is perhaps the most outrageous crime against
society, that society may be guilty of bringing upon itself.
