A New Book From Sheriff Mack Excerpts from the preface to ‘Are You A David?’
When I published ‘The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope’ in February of 2009, I hoped that a few of our nation’s sheriffs, peace officers, and other local officials would read it and be positively influenced. I knew that most of the public servants who had sworn an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution had not read it or did not understand it, just as I hadn’t when I first took the oath as a new police officer. If I could get just a few of them to consider the principles of federalism and state sovereignty that resulted in the formation of our Constitution and incorporate these ideals into the way they fulfilled their various offices, it would be worth it.
Now, after 100,000 copies have been sold and distributed nationwide I think we can safely say the book has exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations; it certainly has mine!
In spite of our occasional victories, however, this time is unprecedented in American history. America’s demise is imminent and the need for restoration is a national emergency. A lot has happened in the last five years to make this second book necessary. It’s truly amazing: the people I’ve met, the places I’ve been and the things I’ve experienced since writing that book. Thus, my desire to share some of that with you is in this sequel. I’d also like to tell you some of the lame-brained excuses I’ve heard from sheriffs and others for NOT standing up when they should have. If some of what I have to say here makes them a little hot under the collar, so be it!
In the first book I addressed the “gradual and silent” encroachments that Madison warned us about. However, the incremental (Fabianistic) destruction of America and the “fundamental transformation” as promised by Mr. Obama, are no longer silent nor gradual. They are bold and in-your-face, an audacious devastation with a blatant scheme to replace our Constitution with Marxism. (Mr. Obama is certainly not alone in this movement!)
On the surface, much of what we see in America seems to be better than ever. Greater technology, advances in the medical field, increased ease of travel and communications, nice cars and smooth freeways, more time and options for entertainment and recreation. Yet many of us understand that the party is almost over. Americans who are paying attention know that today’s tyranny, government abuses, corruption, inflated fiat currency, overflowing prisons, disdain for the Constitution, gluttonous debt and mass psychosis spell doom for this once free country. This is the most critical time in our nation’s history since the Civil War.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us… ~ Charles Dickens, A Tale Of Two Cities
Courageous leaders with their eyes wide open are our rays of hope in this fast-approaching night, and some sheriffs, chiefs of police, peace officers, county commissioners, city councils, state legislatures, and governors are standing up. Just when we have begun to despair, state and local officials have made moves to nullify unconstitutional acts of the Federal Government. It appears that there is hope – real hope, not just ‘campaign jive’ hope – to restore liberty in America. If we can accomplish this, future generations may indeed look back on our day as “the best of times.”
