Why is it the Federal Government tramples on states rights and gets away with it. Sure the governors and states attorneys my complain but just once I wish they would stand up for themselves.
The recent situation in Arizona is a good example. Arizona wants to arrest illegals and deport them. and the federal government has said no you can't enforce the law it is a violation of their rights......excuse me was I sleeping in class that day ? maybe I'm not the brightest bulb but don't you have to be a citizen to have constitutional rights ?
Anyway, just once I want a governor to stand up and defy the federal government. I want the governor of Arizona to stand up and say to Eric Holder, we don't care what you say and you can't and wont stop us from enforcing our laws. I would then round up all the illegals I could and shove them back across the Mexican border. if the Feds tried to block that I would load them on a tour bus and drive them to Washington DC and unload them at the capitol building and let them deal with them. If the government sent in federal agents I would escort them to the state line by force if necessary. I would put the feds on notice if you try and stop us we will use national guard troops to protect our state.
Actually this would be a good time for any state to take a stand for their rights like this. I would like to see 0bama defend his position in an election year. I would like to see national guard and federal troops square off at the state line, I would like to see Texas side with Arizona and not allow the feds in their state either. I am afraid if we don't have states which aren't afraid to defy the federal government then the feds will continue to shove their garbage down our throats. I think the federal government would be the ones to back down.
It is way past time to make a stand against federal government abuse, the states are the perfect place for that to start. While they are at it let the state of Arizona say they are allowing prayer back in schools, and that they won't enforce federal gun laws and any other unconstitutional law the federal government is shoving down their throat. While we are at it, let Florida continue purge voter rolls and dare Eric Holder to stop them. If the feds try to cut off government funding then the state stops funneling funds to the federal government. Whats the worst that can happen? all the liberals move to California or Washington DC ?
Wait a minute that might work.
