"Nullifiers" fail to understand they are advocating perjury as jurors swear to follow the judges explanation of the law.

What if the judge's explanation is flawed or biased?

I have been in several jury pools, and at the appropriate point in “voir dire (sp?)”, which is legalese for “jury tampering by the lawyers,” the judge always intones something like, “Is there anyone among you who would not follow my instructions on the law?” My hand always goes up, I am called forward, and inform the judge that I would take his instructions under advisement but I alone would interpret and apply the law.

I have been dismissed at that point every single time.
