The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope

No Sheriff Left Behind-sm I ran across this news article last week that explained a possible solution to dealing with the un-constitutional actions of the federal government. (pause: FYI, the first 10 amendments were all about limiting the power of the federal government, and we have pretty much trampled over all of them now) Sheriff Mack (Arizona) has written a book

to prove once and for all that the sheriffs in this country are indeed the ultimate law authority in their respective jurisdictions. The sheriff absolutely has the power and responsibility to defend his citizens against all enemies, including those from our own Federal Government. History, case law, common law and common sense all show clear evidence that the sheriff is the people’s protector in all issues of injustice and is responsible for keeping the peace in all matters. He is the last line of defense for his constituents; he is America’s last hope to regain our forgotten freedom. This short but powerful book is a must read for all citizens, sheriffs, and government officials that we may all work to return America to the constitutional republic she was meant to be. Amazing as it might be, the sheriff can make this happen!

He is going through each county, state by state, to deliver his book and inform sheriffs of their obligation to protect their citizens against all enemies. He filed a lawsuit against the federal government for the Brady Bill, but he now believes simple non-compliance is a more economical and effective means of standing up against unconstitutional acts by the federal government. I was interested to learn he does not enforce the federal seat belt laws in his county, and he wrote his senators and rep to get his federal income taxes back, since he is sure he needs his money more than the a-holes that received federal bailout money.
Could this be a solution or part of the solution to the problem of an ever expanding and un-constitutional federal government?

One Response to The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope

  1. I sent an email to the Collin county sheriff:

    Subject: question about sheriff's role in relation to federal government

    Sheriff Box,

    I recently came across an article that told about a sheriff in Arizona
    that wrote a book and claims the "sheriff absolutely has the power and
    responsibility to defend his citizens against all enemies, including
    those from our own Federal Government". It brought up a question I'd
    like to ask you:

    If the federal government took actions that were deemed to be
    unconstitutional, will you step in and defend the citizens of
    Collin county? Have there been instances of this in the past?

    The article I read is here:

    I appreciate your response.

    I was surprised to not only get a response, but I got a response from him within an hour!

    Yes I am very familiar with the subject you are talking about. I will
    do everything within my power to enforce our rights under the U S
    constitution. Sheriff Mack is no longer in Office, and he is trying to
    sell books. This is a very hard subject to go in depth in an email. I
    have never had the occasion to have the Federal Government come into
    Collin County and commit any unconstitutional acts to our residence.

    Thanks,

    Terry G. Box, Sheriff

    His response makes me want to know more about his opinion and experience, but I'm not sure I should go stalking the sheriff for philosophical answers. I'm very impressed to know our sheriff is this accessible though.
