Fax sent to every Sheriff in the Country concerning Bundy’s Support of Hammond’s Injustice
“Federal Land” in your County is NOT the Proper Role of Government: Defend citizens’ rights: i.e. Malheur National Wildlife Refuge
Usually we like to showcase GOOD examples of Sheriffs taking constitutional steps in their county. However, this month we have a BAD example in the case of David M. Ward in Harney County, Oregon.
Said Sheriff Ward in addressing the protest at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge:
“These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives, to attempt to overthrow the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States… A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution… For the time being, please stay away from that area.”
The solution (as always) is adhering to the Constitution in the tradition of our Founding Fathers!
The federal government is authorized by the Constitution to occupy certain areas within a state if such areas were “purchased by the consent of the state legislature,” and the Constitution spelled out the purposes for which it was authorized to make these purchases. Land could be purchased (with the consent of the state legislature) 1) for the erection of forts, 2) for magazines and arsenal, 3) for dock-yards, and 4) for other needful buildings such as post offices.
The first new states adhered to such provisions. However they were completely (and unconstitutionally) ignored when western states were added to the Union.
