The latest chapter in the saga between the state of Arizona and the Obama regime moves the federal government and perhaps the election itself to unchartered waters. We now have a "president" who is blatantly and willingly declaring he will NOT enforce specific federal laws for the sole purpose of courting the votes of a targeted group of Americans. This is shocking and should be grounds for impeachment.
Homeland Security Director Napolitano's announcement that her agency will ignor calls from Arizona law enforcement authorities regarding their identifying and retaining illegal immigrants speaks of a constitutional crisis and a conflict between the federal goverment and a state not witnessed since the Civil War.
This reaction by Napolitano is far more of a breakdown than Obama's announcement last week that he had ordered her not to deport the children of illegal immigrants. What happens if Sheriff Joe's deputies stop and retain a twenty something year old illegal who had snuck over the border on their own accord three or four weeks ago? Does that illegal just tell the cops his folks brought him in without his knowledge?
If a president gets by with this blatant dereliction of duty, what comes next? Would it be shocking for a future president to announce that no citizen of a non-white race will be prosecuted for violating election laws? Why not have a president announce that persons of a certain race between the age of 55 and 65 would not be prosecuted for Medicare fraud? How about college students who owe student loans will exempt from registering for the draft?
What will law-abiding, tax-paying Arizonans be thinking about now? They're paying the same substantial federal taxes as citizens in other states. Constitutionally, protecting the national border and assuring our soveranty is the number one function of the federal government. At what point do they refuse to pay federal taxes?
It has been said that this election will be about the economy. The economy under this regime is dismal and their business model is basically the same one that has bankrupted much of Europe as well as many of our own cities and states. However, I would encourage all of us to look beyond our wallets, at least somewhat. Remember, Adolph Hitler built up Germany's economy before WW2. A good number of our parents and grandparents and relatives spilled their blood for the very freedoms we enjoy. If this blatant breach of the oath of office is not stopped, largely because of public apathy, we'll cease to exist as a free country. We simply cannot elect a chief executive that will not obey and enforce our laws. This must be stopped now. From www.jamesherbertharrison.com/blog
