I knew it wouldn't take long. Arizona recently passed an immigration law that basically enforces what the Federal Government has failed to enforce. Now, the Federal Government is entertaining the idea of suing Arizona. Obama and his Cabinet of Hitmen want nothing more than for this country to fall off of the pages of history. You think that's extreme? Look at his policies - look at what they are doing to America and then you tell me if that is extreme. So, why is the Fed so upset with Arizona? Because Arizona will stem the tide of votes Liberals in Congress will get. According to CNN.com, Attorney General, Eric Holder said that the Justice Department is considering a lawsuit against Arizona. There are concerns that this law may violate civil rights.
Rights of the citizenry are not universal-global rights. These are rights of American citizens. Civil Rights are nothing more than what are spelled out in the Constitution, in my opinion. Not that the Constitution grants these rights, but that it reminds the Government to back off. Constitutional rights are only available to Americans. People from other countries that come into our country illegally are breaking the law (hence "illegally.") One of the basic duties of the Federal Government is to protect our borders. If a nation's borders cannot be maintained, what's the point of a nation? If someone cannot respect the most basic law of sovereignty, what makes you think they will obey any other laws of our country? Now, you might argue that this position isn't fair to those people. OK, well, the next time someone breaks into your house (doesn't respect the sovereignty of your property) I expect you to not call the police; to not attack the intruder; I expect you to welcome him, allow him to take what he chooses (representative of our tax dollars paying for their health care, etc.) and ultimately accept him into your home as a family member (citizen). You probably think that is crazy. But that is exactly what happens to our country.
So, Arizona, amidst more colloidal failure from the Federal Government, decided that they would enforce the sovereignty of their State. Yes, States have sovereignty as well. Remember when George Bush was criticized for his "delayed" response to Katrina? The Governor of Louisiana wouldn't let the Federal help come into the State until 3 or 4 days after the fact. The President cannot just send troops/help into a State without the State's permission. Arizona is tired of illegals flooding and devaluing their economy and blatantly ignoring their sovereignty that they did something about it. In fact, the 10th Amendment to the Constitution gives them this authority. Each State has the right to protect and defend themselves. Except, when Obama's President, no State is safe. All must bow before the image of Obama.
I think this is going to be an answer to the Obama regime. I know we need desperate turnover in Congress but if the States would stand up to Obama, we could really shut down his agenda. I would love to see a Governor tell Obama that as long as National Health Care is law, you won't be seeing any Federal Income taxes sent from my State. Furthermore, if the IRS has an office in my State, I will shut it down. And, if you want to do something about it, I'll have the National Guard waiting for you.
Let's tell the Fed that they have no power except what is given them by the States. If they think they can just walk over the States, then it is time for the States to rise up and enforce what the Fed should be doing anyway.
