"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of
the Constitution so that the second will not become a legalized version of the first."
- Thomas Jefferson

PUBLIC SAFETY

The only legitimate role of government is to protect the inherent rights of the people.  As Sheriff, Deputies, Police Officers, other Law Enforcement Agents, Firefighters, Rescue and Emergency Medical workers, the people have placed their trust in you, and lent a portion of their authority to empower you to protect them and their rights.  The US Constitution is the charter for such government. Below, you will find accounts, associations, and networks for Public Safety Officers to uphold their oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

REMEMBER:

YOUR OATH IS TIMELESS,
WITHOUT 'STATUTE OF LIMITATION.'

"...the states have the right, and are duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.” - Thomas Jefferson

Interposition
“That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact to which the states are parties;...and that in case of a deliberate, palpable and dangerous exercise of other powers not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the pro[gress] of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.”

True Federalism
“The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to. Let the national government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations; the State governments with the civil rights, law, police, and administration of what concerns the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the counties, and each ward direct the interests within itself. It is by dividing and subdividing these republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends in the administration of every man’s farm by himself; by placing under every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best. What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body. 

– Thomas Jefferson
