The question isn't what we could do. The question is what we can do.

I come here daily for one reason. To find out where we stand on being free. For me, this website could be more than just a website. I'm sick of watching, waiting. If we are the will of freedom then why aren't we doing more? I'm sure as individuals we all do our part to shake people, try to wake them up... it's not working, not fast enough at least. As a group, what are we capable of? As a group, how loud would our voice be?

My question to the Daily Paul members

What are somethings we could do as a group that would have a major impact for this movement?

I have a few ideas but want to hear what others have to say.

No one can claim to have no idea as to what can be done if you read and understand the following.

http://nationallibertyalliance.org/conference/call.html

While the effort (many individuals working cooperatively in defense of Liberty) gains power the National Organizing process includes a weekly meeting to discuss current inventions, adaptations, and competitive solutions to solve the problems that are resisting defense of Liberty.

This is history being made in your time, so each individual (free) member of The People (under ancient common law, based upon ancient Natural or God's Law) are now being called to duty, as was the case in those days when The Declaration of Independence was recorded into World History.

If you have not the faintest idea as to the roots of Trial by Jury, why the colonists in America kept it dear to their hearts, along side their many other tools, such as the plow, or the defensive weapon, or the duty to speak out against Tyranny, then you might want to read the following Essay on Trial by Jury.

From Crisis:
_________________________________________________
December 23, 1776
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

From the Essay on Trial by Jury:
____________________________________________________
FOR more than six hundred years - that is, since Magna Carta, in 1215 - there has been no clearer principle of English or American constitutional law, than that, in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of the accused; but that it is also their right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge of the justice of the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion, unjust or oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating, or resisting the execution of, such laws.

Unless such be the right and duty of jurors, it is plain that, instead of juries being a "palladium of liberty "- a barrier against the tyranny and oppression of the government - they are really mere tools in its hands, for carrying into execution any injustice and oppression it may desire to have executed.

But for their right to judge of the law, and the justice of the law, juries would be no protection to an accused person, even as to matters of fact; for, if the government can dictate to a jury any law whatever, in a criminal case, it can certainly dictate to them the laws of evidence. That is, it can dictate what evidence is admissible, and what inadmissible, and also what force or weight is to be given to the evidence admitted. And if the government can thus dictate to a jury the laws of evidence, it can not only make it necessary for them to convict on a partial exhibition of the evidence rightfully pertaining to the case, but it can even require them to convict on any evidence whatever that it pleases to offer them.

Check out Ron Paul's new book "the School Revolution".

I haven't finished it yet, but he says:
- Political activism of any kind (presumably including his own) is useless in creating liberty
- It won't be until we circumvent the public school system that people will get it.

I don't think this is it in it's entirety, but what a place to start.

Personally I believe that anything which you believe has value can contribute to the cause of free agency.

Otherwise and until policy changes (even in the face of civil collapse), I believe that the cycle of political oppression practically continues.

Accordingly I think the primary way to rectify matters is to become involved politically, as Dr. Ron did also. Of course that's no guarantee, but at least one’s conscience can be at peace with circumstances.
