Is there a need for the Seventh Amendment today?
The Executive and Legislative and Judicial Branches are corrupt to the core! Right to a trial by jury of one's peers is the Seventh Amendment. The highest court in the land is the Common Law Grand Jury - not the Supreme Court, who are some criminals! We need the Seventh Amendment! Answer Absolutely, perhaps now more than ever before. The power of the government, whether state or federal, is so strong that almost anyone can be charged with a crime and convicted. If the decision to convict a person were solely in the hands of the government, all persons charged with crimes would be convicted whether innocent or guilty, because it is the government which brings the charges in the first place.
