Hey Ron Paul fans! Are you tired of paying taxes to fund those damn government services and the jobs that go along with them and vigilante justice rules the land? Are you looking to move to a place where people see things your way? I've got a solution to your problems!
All you need to do is move to Josephine County, Oregon where freedom-loving "voters emphatically turned down a $12 million levy to plug a gap left by the expiration of federal timber subsidies."
Now, in Josephine County, you can finally enjoy the "freedom" to be the kind of criminal you want to be without government interference.
Dozens of inmates ran whooping from a small town jail into the sunshine Wednesday after a cash-strapped county in Oregon's timber region was forced to release them amid budget cuts.Yeah, so there are still a few in jail but if you move there you can help your fellow freedom lovers to finish the job by voting to cut all that other damned government spending in future elections.
The sheriff's office released 39 inmates, dropping the population at the jail in Grants Pass to 60 - half of them federal prisoners held on contract.
It's not like these people who are enjoying their new found freedom are bad people. They're just good freedom loving Americans who are finally free of the damned meddling of the liberal nanny state!
The most common charges were for drug crimes, minor assaults, burglary, identity theft and probation violations.
"We did keep the worst of the worst" - those facing charges for crimes that carry mandatory prison sentences - said Jail Commander Vicki Smith.
Among the inmates released was one incarcerated for failing to register as a sex offender, and another accused of agreeing to sex for money with a 14-year-old girl offered by her boyfriend online.
Among those released was William Nathan Smith, a 45-year-old man from San Jose, Calif., who served 30 days of a 50-day sentence for drugs, assault, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He sat on a curb with his shirt off, smoking his first cigarette in weeks, TV cameras in his face.Oh sweet freedom!
He said inmates have been excited for days, wondering if they would be among those released.
"They're feeling like they're getting a break for once," Smith said. "It's not like they're beating the system."
And besides, who needs the damned government to protect you? You don't need help from the nanny state. If you should somehow become a victim of one of these newly released patriots who are simply exercising their Constitutional right to pursue their own happiness, it's your own damned fault! Just take responsibility for yourself and do like Tammy Behrle has done!
Tammy Behrle, who lives alone in the woods and has no computer to check the sheriff's office website for information on the inmates being released, showed up to take photos of them so she would know who to look out for on the street.
"I put a gun on layaway - a .38 Special - and I'll get a permit when I get the training," she said. "This thing can go any which way but loose."
