I would like you to read an urgent letter from my friend, Sheriff Richard Mack. I will include my comments after his letter.
Just One Chance
What would you do if you knew you had just one chance to save your family and country from complete and utter destruction? What would you do if you knew there was a lawful and peaceful way to restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land? As a former peace officer and county sheriff, if I were to take the stand in court right this minute, and be sworn to tell the truth, I would, without any hesitation or ambiguity, testify to you and every American, that there is a solution, that there is in fact a way to secure liberty, protect ourselves and our families, and once again live in peace and freedom.
The solution is in your hands, it is within your own backyard, it is in your county. The solution is state sovereignty and each county acting in accordance with the principles established therein. It’s you working with your sheriff and other elected officials to stand against the tyrant and for individual liberty. The bottom line answer is your sheriff. Ultimately, he is the one who will decide what is and what is not enforced in your county. He has the authority and duty to interpose himself on your behalf to protect you from all enemies both foreign and domestic. He is the people’s protector.
We have been working on this movement for three years and we are now ready to push this concept to the next level. What concept is this? The concept of creating Constitutional Sheriffs all across America. The CSPOA (Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officer Association) is having its first national convention. We are inviting 150 to 200 sheriffs from all over the country to attend. We are going to train them, firm up their knowledge of the Constitution and their oath of office, and then establish a new declaration from the sheriffs to the Federal Government, that there are a few things these sheriffs will no longer tolerate from the feds. Literally, the CSPOA is going to create a nation of constitutional sheriffs. There is no abuse they will not be able to stop. With them on board the freedom train there will be no stopping us. We can have America back tomorrow; not next election (like that has ever worked) and not next year, now!
We need your help. We need you to pledge your lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to this holy cause. We have just started our “money bomb” and ask that you do whatever you can to help us pay for this Constitutional Sheriff convention. We are not asking for your fortunes, but merely that you do what you can. To make this all happen we must raise $200,000 As soon as we do, the convention happens. It will be the most important meeting since the Founders signed the Constitution.
Please forward this email to everyone you know who would like to restore freedom in this country.

Sheriff Richard Mack (RET)
So many people ask me what they can do personally to help restore the Liberties we have lost. The political and economic problems seem insurrmountable, but only if you imagine that you have to do all the work by yourself. Most of us hope and pray that a hero will ride in like John Wayne and deal with the bad guys on our behalf. That idea is not as antiquated and far-fetched as you might imagine. The Sheriff in each county takes an oath of office to do exactly that. Defend us from bad guys sent by the state and federal governments.
So how can we make that happen? By hosting a national convention of Sheriffs, and inviting as many as 200 of these elected officials to listen to Sheriff Richard Mack explain the importance of their position and the oath they took. I have shared the stage with Richard many times, and I must confess that my hopes for my country soar when I realize that someone else is willing to speak as passionately about the Constitution as I do. You don’t have to do the work yourself – but you have to make it possible for Sheriff Mack to do the work for you.
Not surprisingly, most elected Sheriffs will be reluctant to travel across the country to attend a “boring seminar” if they have to pay for it themselves. Therefore, we’re asking you to foot the bill for their travel and lodging so they WILL come to listen to Sheriff Mack. Richard has already told me that he expects me to be there to offer a few choice words in this regard. A team of wild horses could not prevent me from being at this event when it occurs. I am hoping that you feel as strongly about this opportunity as I do.
What I’m asking you to do is to make as large a contribution as you can by visiting Sheriff Mack’s website, or mailing a donation to his Texas address. I know the economy sucks. I know that most of us are struggling to pay the rent and put food on the table. I know that some of us are worried that the bank will foreclose on your home. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your county Sheriff standing on your front porch telling the bankers to “go pound sand”? If you don’t help to make this national Sheriffs conference happen, then you may find yourself evicted with no one standing by to protect you. Never have our Liberties depended more on your immediate action.
The founding fathers dedicated, “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor”. Now it is time for you to do the same. After you make your contribution, please share your comments encouraging others to follow your example. Time is running out.
