The Office of Sheriff
You know my position: No matter how bad it gets, politics can't be ignored, neglected or dismissed.
Our Founders understood the importance of politics. It was a political act to write and sign our Declaration, an act taken by politicians, and enforced by the III Percent in the field.
The same formula will work this time.
After the first Revolution the Federalists became terrified that Patriots might come hunting for them and kill them, for they were already violating the spirit of the Constitution. They watched the French Revolution and were afraid - with good reason - that the same could happen here.
This time the revolutionaries are those seeking to crush the Constitution, once and for all. Constitutionalists today are counter-revolutionaries, seeking to protect and defend the Original Intent of the Constitution and those fellow Americans who seek to respect it in name and deed.
I contend our original III made a mistake when they did not evict every last Loyalist from the continent. Our original III were too tolerant. The troops of Lincoln made the same strategic blunder (thankfully) by leaving so many Southerners alive and in their homes, with festering hatred that still exists many generations later.
This time I suspect the disgust for the parasites among us is so high that Americans who choose to enter the Ruckus in defense of Natural Law, Rightful Liberty and our Founding Principles and documents will not stop when the parasites and their forces throw up their hands in defeat. There will not be a tolerant peace. There will be trials, and many of those trials may be held Roy Bean style. Patriots will hunt for those who sought to enslave them, and make them pay for their crimes. This time, with History serving as a guide, the victor, whoever may win, will not stop until their enemies are dead or physically forced off the continent. I promise you the Marxists will not stop until all traces of "Patriots" are eradicated, snuffed from existence, History and even memory.
This time, it is for all the marbles, and one side or the other will win a total victory that includes the absolute destruction of the enemy philosophy.
The Reign of Terror will look like a Sunday brunch, regardless of which side prevails.
Responsible Patriots will not neglect the political realm. A very large percentage of those who will support Patriots, as well as a very large percentage of those who are ambivalent, folks who do not fight, recognize the Constitution as the governing authority (even if they have no idea what it says or means), so using the Constitution as a rally point is simply common sense.
Equally, the vast majority of Americans recognize the office of Sheriff as a legitimate office with a Constitutional role in our society. Patriots should use that recognition strategically. If you have a good Sheriff, support him (or her). Be vocal. Throw some money into his campaign fund and make sure he knows who you are, and what you expect. Align yourself with him and his office, which will work to your benefit for legitimacy. If you have a bad Sheriff, support a good candidate. If there is no good candidate, YOU run for the seat. If you are a III Patriot and you intend to respect the Constitution, who would be a better person wielding Constitutional power?
If the Ruckus starts and you have a bad Sheriff, make him abandon his office and clear the way for a good Sheriff. If the Ruckus starts and there is suddenly a vacuum in the Sheriff's Office, step in yourself or support someone you trust. Consider buying a simple "Sheriff" badge and keeping it in your gear - if the time comes when legitimate authority and recognition of that authority is needed, have the means to hand the elected Sheriff a badge to pin on his shirt.
The election may be a well-disciplined affair, or it may be you standing on a soapbox at the County Green and counting hands in the crowd. But do not dismiss the value of having a Sheriff on your side. Do not dismiss his genuine Constitutional role. Do not dismiss the symbols and trappings of the office, which conveys legitimacy to the people who do not fight.
Who is your Sheriff right now? Is he a serious person when it comes to respecting the Natural Rights of the Citizens in his AO? Does he at least attempt to shunt the unconstitutional mandates coming from the State and FedGov? Or is he simply another politician, milking the system and abusing his office?
Consider: If you were Sheriff, or one of your Tribe who you trust were Sheriff, how many goodies could you get from Uncle Sugar that will help your AO in the future?
Any III Patriot reading this post - if you run, I will help support you. I will work beneath the radar to help any III Patriot who puts himself out there in such a manner. For those of you who may need the income, being Sheriff is NOT an FSA office. You can accept that paycheck proudly. You can stand tall between Enemies of Liberty and your Countrymen. If you don't need the money, consider running anyway - because America needs Her Patriots in serious, legitimate positions.
Think about it...
