I consider the right to trial by jury on the same level as the right to vote. Both are the basis of system of government. The right to write in a cantidate is the equivalent to jury nullification. Without the possibility of jury nullification, and in my opinionjuries should be allowed more leeway in their verdicts, our system of government no longer is of and by the people. It is our last holdout against tyrany Those who argue against jury nullification would also argue for a dictatorship.
