Sheriffs Obeying Their Oaths – What A Concept!

Sipsey Street Irregulars has an article regarding a movement, if you will, amongst rural Sheriffs in California.(One in Oregon).  Essentially, they have seen large, intrusive government, and decided they are going to follow their Oaths, instead of their orders.
An excerpt:
‘Sheriff Dean Wilson of Del Norte County said he was “ignorant and naïve about the terrible condition our state was in.” He came to believe that people were being assaulted by their own government. “I spent a good part of my life enforcing the penal code but not understanding my oath.” Wilson and other sheriffs said it is their role to defend the liberties of the people against any encroachments – even if those encroachments come from other branches of government.
(the phrase foreign and domestic just rang in my ears! – guffaw)
Go. Read.  Be proud of public servants, who it appears, indeed, serve the public, and not just follow the orders from the on-high Leviathan.
And, this originated in CALIFORNIA!  Who knew?

  3. I surely hope they mean it and have the backbone for it. It is true that even the President can't fart without permission from the sheriff of the county he is in.Thanks for dropping by with your well wishes. I'm feeling a lot better.
