These Signs Are Showing Up Everywhere, And They’re AWESOME

 In Georgia, one Sheriff is warning visitors that they have Traditional American Values.
Likely inspired by this sign that reads the same, Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley erected a sign that reads:
Welcome to Harris County, Georgia! WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust; we salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you…LEAVE!”
 WIS-TV is reporting the Sheriff received many positive responses for the sign.
“I’m humbled by all the attention the sign has received,” Jolley said. “Over the years, I’ve witnessed the silent majority grow and as a true patriot and a Christian, I felt it was time for the silent majority to speak up. I truly believes what’s on the sign.”
Sheriff Jolley said he paid for the sign himself, and says he plans to post more of these signs around the county, as others have offered to pay some more.
Jolley tells the Ledger-Enquirer he was tired of the silent majority remaining silent.
“It’s time for the silent majority to stand up for our beliefs and not be ashamed,” he said.
He’s received overwhelming support for the sign that cost him $553, he said. He purchased it from D&S Sign Company on Linwood Boulevard in Columbus. Jolley said several citizens have wanted to post one on their property.
Some have even sent checks.
“The sign has been purchased double,” he said.
“I’m humbled by all of the support,” the sheriff said. “Surprised and humbled by it. Maybe the silent majority isn’t going to be silent anymore.”
Jolley said he has approximately 75 employees in his office. When asked how those who perhaps aren’t Christians may feel, Jolley said “they’re more than welcome to worship whatever God they choose fit.”
“For me and mine, we worship Jesus Christ.”

As for what he hopes to achieve with the sign, Jolly said, “Coming up on Thanksgiving, maybe somebody will be thankful for something we have. …”
Jolley has been the sheriff of Harris County for six terms.
A similar sign was erected recently outside Schuler’s Bakery in Springfield, Ohio.
Trent Schuler said he was frustrated by “a lack of support for our troops and police officers, and a lack of reverence for God in society.”
He decided that due to his belief in “freedom of expression, freedom of religion and freedom of speech,” he wanted his customers to know that he won’t “toe the party line.”
He discussed the signs with his staff prior to hanging them. Some raised concerns that customers might be “offended.”
