“Contrary to what many pundits will tell you,” writes Carolyn McKinney, chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, “the upcoming presidential election is not the most important decision facing New Hampshire voters this November.”
The most important ballot you will cast in November, McKinney declares, is your vote for county sheriff.
By design, county sheriffs are supreme law enforcement officers in American counties, and their number one duty is not to transport prisoners, as some pundits in New Hampshire would have you believe.
Before anything else, a County Sheriff’s job as a peace officer is to protect and defend the constitutional rights of citizens in the county from all enemies, “foreign and domestic.” Accordingly, county sheriffs in New Hampshire and in the other 49 states are America’s last defense against an out-of-control federal government, which seems to be increasingly determined to take away citizens’ constitutionally protected rights.
The RLCNH, which is closely aligned with the Free State Project, has endorsed two candidates for sheriff who openly express their disdain for the rule of law, Bradley Jardis in Coos County and Frank Szabo in Hillsborough County. Jardis and Szabo, writes McKinley, “understand the importance of the county sheriff role” and “should earn voters’ enthusiastic support.”
Bradley Jardis is a former police officer who was called “unstable” by fellow officers and was described by his chief as someone who “shouldn’t wear the badge” of law enforcement. The Exeter native, who describes himself as a “native free stater,” told the Concord Monitor that he doesn’t believe in the legitimacy of America’s political institutions.
“I think the Supreme Court is nine politically-appointed politicians who don’t care about anyone’s rights, to tell you the truth,” he said, adding several times, “democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner.”
Frank Szabo has his own radical agenda, which he describes in a press statement:
Abortion on demand is murder. Once elected, Sheriff Szabo will arrest anyone involved in the murder of a Citizen of Hillsborough County.
For those confused about this position in relation to Roe v. Wade, Frank points out the fact that there have been many court decisions which were unconstitutional and unlawful. The Office of Sheriff requires that the Constitution be honored and obeyed in agreement with Common Law. Aborting otherwise healthy fetuses violates both.
