    Nevada counties join anti-federal government sheriff’s group (apnews.com)

    So, I guess the Supreme Court doesn't get to decide what's constitutional in Elko and a few other Nevada counties. That's up to the sheriff.

    So, they think they can just kick IRS agents out of the county? I wonder why our sheriff didn't think of that.

    Some people are getting rather testy out there.

    I'd say I'd sit by watching with some popcorn, but it's too damn hot even for that delicious slice of schadenfreude.

    They want their county to be their country?
    Build a fence around them and let nobody in or out without a visa.

    An interesting wrinkle....
    Many of us also use our own judgement when
    we see rulings go against the Constitution.
    (I have....felonious draft dodging & all.)
    The sheriffs are just taking it to the next level.
    In doing so, one should prepare for consequences.

    No name designated at this time.
    Maybe they are getting tired of the direction that the country is going.
    We out here in the West feel that the ideas of the east and west coast do not represent us.
    We don't mind people moving here to flee the policies of many east and west coast cities as long as they remember why the left and don't try and insitute those policies here.
    Just saying

    I'd be out of the People's Republic of NY in a heartbeat if I had the chance.

    In the meantime, I guess I'll continue to wave my red hammer and sickle flag and praise our Supreme Glorious Chairman.

    Its usually Texas that does stuff like that but it seems others have the same or similar thoughts.

    Personally if possible. Take a saw and cut away New York and California, and let them float very far away from this country. .

    Another example of police not enforcing the law.

    Reminds me of New Hampshire couple,
    Edward Lewis Brown (born 1942) and his wife, Elaine Alice Brown (born c. 1940), residents of the state of New Hampshire, gained national news media attention as tax protesters in early 2007 for refusing to pay the U.S. federal income tax and subsequently refusing to surrender to federal government agents after having been convicted of tax crimes.[1] After the conviction and sentencing, a long, armed standoff with federal law enforcement authorities at their New Hampshire residence ended with the arrest of Edward and Elaine Brown on October 4, 2007.[2][3][4] In July 2009, while serving their sentences for the tax crimes, the Browns were found guilty by a federal district court jury of additional criminal charges arising from their conduct during the standoff.

    A friend & his father refused to pay income taxes.
    Well, some time in federal prison elicited compliance.

    And more recently Kent Hovind. (More curiously with Kent as a pastor, in an earlier law case the court had ruled he'd lied on oath.)

    Well, you could always start or actively work for a secessionist movement.

    Aw, is New York holding you hostage? Do they have you chained up to a light pole?

    Your Supreme Glorious Chairman, Trump, appreciates your love and adoration.
