Reports state that the “Sagebrush Sheriffs” or “constitutional sheriffs” have been using their positions locally to run federal officials out of each of their respective counties, stating that they are not afraid to even take their efforts to the point of breaking the law if it means defending our true rights.
Former sheriff from Graham County, AZ, Richard Mack, published an article titled “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope” in 2009 that details how sheriffs are the “last line of defense” and that their duty is to protect individual liberties in the face of an out-of-control federal government.
During a recent interview with High Country News, Mack claims that sheriffs can successfully lead the fight to rescue America from “the cesspool of corruption.” By refusing to enforce federal and state laws that they deem unconstitutional, our citizens will be protected from injustice. Mack also believes that sheriffs “have the power to nullify federal authority.”
“There is no solution in Washington, D.C.,” Mack concluded. “If we’re going to take America back, it’s going to be at a local level.”
