My Ron Paul yard sign was stolen. Amazing encounter with the sheriffSubmitted by Foodfreedom on Thu, 03/15/2012 - 09:40
I loved my street sign. It got thousands of views every day. I put two mini american flags on top of it for some extra kick. I drive home from class, and the sign is gone.
I'm not going to let this go unnoticed, so I called the sheriff.
The sheriff arrived, and I told him I put up a Ron Paul sign and it got stolen. I explained how I know he can't find it and that I just wanted them to know. I said I'm going to keep putting them up (I have 6 more signs). He told me to keep putting them up. He said things like, "I feel your pain putting up a sign like this. And during political season we deal with a lot of stuff like this." He had a theory that some Santorum supporters probably came by and thought it would be funny to steal my sign. I noticed he knew a bit about politics. He told me that I obviously know my rights and suggested I try and citizens arrest them if I spot them coming again.
Then the conversation got good. He told me, that he can't endorse Ron Paul in uniform, but he agrees with just about everything he says. He said he served in Iraq for many years and is very against the war. We started talking about undeclared wars, constitutionalism, and why we need to get out of Afghanistan, Iraq, and should not get into Iran. He said his job as sheriff is to protect our constitutional rights. He told me that he watches his coworkers to ensure they are doing the same. He told me he voted for a libertarian candidate for the last 3 presidents, but sadly none of them have won.
This conversation was awesome. I truly love my sheriff now and it's nice to hear there are cops fighting the good fight for liberty and peace.
Now I need ideas on how to protect my sign. He suggest I stake it down and attach it to the ground so its too hard to steal. Anybody have any ideas?
PS- those punks didn't win. The new sign thats up is twice the size. Instead of 2 American flags I'm going to put 4. Every time it gets stolen, I'll keep putting it up. I'll eventually catch them and citizens arrest them.
Oh and sign this pledge if you haven't yet already:
