    Amendment 13
    Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

    Youve agreed to be put in a jury pool.usually when youve registered a vehicle in your name. Thata not involuntary.

    Jury Duty is your 3rd vote (Yes you have 3 votes):

    1. Ballot Box
    2. Grand Jury
    3. Jury Duty

    You should research "Jury Nullification" as well.

    Here I believe it happens when you register to vote, and there is NO opt out.

    No one can be this innately stupid, you must have been exposed to toxic substances as a child.

    They pay you for jury duty, that's called work. Of course it's slave wages, hell they don't even pay minimum wage. I get to go to work Feb 2.
