Michael Badnarik: Rattling the Sheriffs' Cages About the Constitution

"Most of what you think you know about our Constitution (and government) is wrong."

Long time historian, author, trainer and public speaker, Michael Badnarik addresses the sheriffs in attendance Monday morning. ( He explains to the over one hundred sworn officers in the room how what they think they know about the Constitution and Bill of Rights may not be entirely accurate.

Badnarik states that his job today, in the short forty-five minutes he is allotted, is to "rattle their cages" a bit in order to spur a new perspective about the oath of office each has taken. To that end Badnarik runs through untaught histories, insightful analysis of the actual words in the founding documents and the differences between rights and privileges in a humorous and impactful exercise to define terms -- a definition of terms that most sheriffs have yet to hear and consider.

NOTE: The post event feedback surveys clearly indicated that this kind of training on the Constitution was the number one component that sheriffs wanted more of.
On January 30-31, 2012 over 100 county sheriffs and peace officers, from over 30 states, united to uphold their oaths of office, protect citizen liberty, and stop state and federal tyranny. Inspired and led by the example of former Graham County Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, the meeting, which was held in Las Vegas, was funded by the generous donations of thousands of Americans from all fifty states, as well as the support of freedom loving sponsors.

The agenda included training on the Bill of Rights, Interposition, Nullification and the importance of Property Rights versus Privileges. Many sheriffs, a police chief and even a county commissioner shared their experiences, challenges and actions taken to uphold their oaths of office, directly with the sheriffs in attendance.

The videos of these presentations are shared here on the County Sheriff Project YouTube channel. We hope that you will share these videos with your own county sheriff and all the oath takers in your county.
