The common law essentially refers to man’s inherent God given rights which have pre-existed all forms of government. The most famous declaration of rights was finally acknowledged by King John of England when he signed the Magna Charta in 1215 (The Great Charter of Liberties). 

Upon this foundation was built the American experiment in which a republican form of government prohibited the menace that a ‘democracy’ would pose to individual rights and that no person or his property could be estranged or subject to distraint without his consent, absent due process of law by a jury of his peers. If you are aware of current conditions in modern society, common law is nearly dead. It must be resuscitated for freedom to prevail. It is up to us!
