A constitutional county has one major difference than an unconstitutional county.
All oath taking officials believe and support the supreme laws of the land which are the state and US. Constitutions and believe laws passed by the U.S. congress or state legislature are the enforceable laws of the land.
Each official in a constitutional county makes all decisions in accordance with their state constitution and the U.S. constitution with no infringement on the people’s rights or freedom.
No federal, state or county official can legislate laws, orders or edicts or enforce null or void laws in a constitutional county.
An official would violate the general statutory oath of office by failing to perform his or her official duties “with fidelity,” denying, infringing, or ignoring any of the rights, liberty or freedoms guaranteed by the Supreme Laws of the Land, our State and U. S. constitutions.
Furthermore, constitutional county officials know that if they violate their oath of office, that the citizens called We the People of that county will demand that the miscreant be arraigned, charged and prosecuted for the following crimes:
Under the laws of a state, it may be considered treason, high crime and/or perjury to betray a sworn oath of office. However, most politicians have forgotten the penalty phase of the violation of oath of office, and
even more, never knew the seriousness of swearing the oath of office, or they never would have started infringing on their constituents rights in order to use the elected office for personal enrichment.
If any official violates their oath of office they can be convicted of crimes with penalties of removal from office, personal liability, criminal penalties, confinement and or fines. An elected official looses their immunity from prosecution by the people when they break the law. Their real estate, community property, personal property and liberty are in jeopardy.
