We must support our county sheriff's........David Risselada
Many people across the country have come to view this authors state of residence, Oklahoma, as one of the most conservative in the union. While it is true that Oklahoma voters have rejected Obama's vision for the country across all seventy seven counties, there still remains a big liberal influence. This was demonstrated the other day as a state senator demanded county sheriffs disarm themselves before entering the capital for an annual "meet and greet" with legislatures. Among those asked to leave was Wagoner County Sheriff, Bob Colbert .
Sheriff Colbert is one of many county sheriff's and other law enforcement officials who have made it perfectly clear to President Obama that his gun control efforts will not be enforced in their jurisdictions. In other words, these honorable men understand the significance of their oath of office. They understand the constitution and the power it gives the people, not the government. They understand that good people exercising the right to keep and bear arms are nothing but an asset to their efforts in fighting crime, and they understand a disarmed populace is a helpless populace. This is why Sheriff Colbert and Oklahoma's other elected sheriff's, when faced with the prospect of either disarming or leaving the capital, chose to leave fully armed with their honor in tact. Good for them.
Let me say this loud and clear. Sheriffs of Oklahoma, patriotic Oklahoman's have got your back.
This isn't the first time state governments have turned on their county sheriff's. In fact it is happening with frightening regularity since they have taken a stand and drawn a red line concerning Constitutional rights. Last year, The Save America Foundation kept its readers up to date on the treasonous actions of Florida governor Rick Scott, as he attempted to strip Sheriff Nick Finch of Liberty county of his authority for defending the Constitutional rights of his county residents. In this article it is clear that there is an effort to strip constitutional powers of arrest from the Delaware county sheriff's. This should be of concern to All Americans because the sheriff is the only elected law enforcement official that represents the voice of the people. This article describes the efforts of the global change agents, i.e. community organizers, to eliminate the county sheriff because they are a huge obstacle to implementing global government. Our government of elected representatives is slowly turning into a government of un-elected bureaucrats as they change the governing structure form one of local control to something called "regionalism." Regionalism of course is just a nicer sounding word for communism.
America, we are living in a time when 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. Gun owners have been and are currently being portrayed as threats to this security, and 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, judging by the actions of Oklahoma's county sheriffs, they know these responsibilities well, which is probably why they were treated in the manner they were at the state capital. They are viewed as a threat to those with a different agenda. Turn your back on this issue at your own peril America.
