Almost Enough To Prompt A Move to Californiastan (But Then There’s Gruesome Nuisance As Counterbalance…)

A sheriff in California has made it clear he will not be enforcing the federal vaccine mandate on his employees at the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office. …

…Sheriff Chad Bianco [said,], “…I will not enforce the vaccine mandate on Sheriff’s Department employees.

“In November of 2018 the residents of Riverside county elected me as their Sheriff. I stood before God and swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of California,” the sheriff continued.  “It is my responsibility to protect the public from the criminal element, as well as being the last line of defense from tyrannical government overreach. The government has no ability and no authority to mandate your health choices. As your Sheriff I have an obligation to guard your liberty and freedom.”

I am stunned speechless at this clarion defence of our inalienable rights—and speechlessness doesn’t afflict me too often.

Thanks to Vinnie Terranova for introducing us to this hero.

OK, recovered my verbal powers. While we envy those folks fortunate enough to live in Sheriff Bianco’s district, neither they nor we should depend on any official to protect liberty. No doubt this lawman would be the first to admit that he cannot battle the totalitarians alone. Second, it’s up to each of us to secure the blessings of freedom to ourselves and our posterity. No one can give us liberty: we must wrest our rights from the tyrants ourselves. How? By mocking the despots, flouting every their every diktat, and holding high the principles of liberty.
