Office of Sheriff


 

We swear to preserve the Office of Sheriff, as intended by the founders, as our legitimate Constitutional Peace Officers. To educate the People and our Public Servants in the historic and lawful authority of the Sheriff’s Office and the oath they make to the Constitution of the United States and the Free and Independent State in which they serve; in order to promote, protect and maintain individual freedoms and liberties.

Vitae Justiciae, Vitae Legis, Vitae Republicaeexplained as follows:  the Sheriff’s powers and duties at common law comprised three of the most important aspects of sustaining the operation of representative government;

vitae justiciae – “for no suit begins, and no process is served, but by the sheriff”

vitae legis – “he is…to make execution [of judgments] which is the life and fruit of the law”; and finally

vitae republicae - "…he is principalis conservator pacis[, i.e., conservator of the public peace] within the county, which is the life of the commonwealth, vitae republicae pax.” Murfree, ch. I,§ 2, p. 2 (emphasis added).


The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's integrity. There are times in our lives when the right thing to do is quite simple, but doing the right thing seems impossible. One of the truest demonstrations of integrity is the blunt refusal to be compromised.  Sheriffs across the country are standing in integrity, doing what’s right. They are unwilling to compromise themselves or their principals and have taken a stand on behalf of the people who elected them, to honor their Oath. 

  • "A constitution defines and limits the powers of the government it creates. It therefore follows, as a natural and also a logical result, that the governmental exercise of any power not authorized by the constitution is an assumed power, and therefore illegal." -Thomas Paine, Constitutions, Governments, and Charters, 1805
  • "Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals - that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government - that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizens' protection against the government." - Ayn Rand

Sheriffs in Colorado did not give in to gestapo politics and are fighting back.  Sheriff Jeff Christopher (Sussex Co., Delaware) is in a battle to preserve the Constitutional Office of Sheriff for us all. Sheriff Christopher’s case could determine the fate of the Office of Sheriff nationwide, yet he struggles for funding this legal battle. The mounting attack on the constitutional right to keep and bear arms has inspired many sheriffs to speak out publicly. Others are in their own local battles to protect the life, liberty and property of those they serve, while struggling to keep their Office and Oath intact. The duties and responsibilities of the Sheriff are becoming more and more complicated and contentious.

  • "The idea that 'the public interest' supersedes private interests and rights can have but one meaning: that the interests and rights of some individuals take precedence over the interests and rights of others." - Ayn Rand
  • "There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation."
    James Madison, 1809-1817

Across the nation, the Office of Sheriff is being dismembered. In the East, they are being stripped of their powers by unlawful, unconstitutional judicial and legislative infringement; in the West, they are being bankrupted and forced to operate under dangerous, life threatening conditions due to unconstitutionally imposed budget cuts. By direct infringements on the constitutional sheriffs’ duties and powers, or indirect refusals to fund their offices in an amount sufficient to perform their constitutional duties; legislators, courts and judges are breaching their own oaths of office by engaging in unconstitutional infringements upon the constitutional office of sheriff. In doing so, these entities are unconstitutionally disenfranchising the People’s right to choose who shall be their chief executive law enforcement officer on their behalf in their respective parishes and counties.

  • "Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government." - James Madison
  • "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy...No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. " - James Madison

The esteemed Office of Sheriff has a long and honorable history of protecting the Rights of the people to a republican form of self-government, which is guaranteed by the Constitution, and which was bought and paid for with the blood of our founding fathers. The Office of Sheriff is Vitae Republicae Pax- Vitae Justiciae, Vitae Legis, Vitae Republicae – The life blood of the republic’s peace, this is a responsibility and duty not to be taken lightly or influenced by any favor. Without unity and moral support we may lose this most sacred and trusted Office of Sheriff to LEO’s who are NOT accountable to the people, but instead accountable only to those having no integrity or accountability to the People.
