Sheriff trying to defend constitutional freedoms

April 29, 2014

Efforts to discredit our constitution and preach the need for change have reached new heights.

People are willing to disregard the very liberties that have kept this nation free in exchange for false promises of security. “You can keep your freedom if you like your freedom."

The sheriffs of the nation are the first line of defense when it comes to defending the constitutional rights of the people. Eliminate the county sheriff and all could be lost. It is imperative we educate all who would listen on the need to support the county sheriffs and ensure we are electing men who know their constitutional responsibilities.

Clearly, by the words and actions of the Sussex County sheriff, he knows these responsibilities well, which is probably why he is treated in the manner he is by county council. He is viewed as a threat to those with little regard for the national and state constitutions. Turn your back on this issue at your own peril.
