Unlike the victory that some so-called conservatives have portrayed it as, Monday's decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to uphold only the provision of Arizona Immigration law that allows law enforcement to require proof of citizenship from suspicious detainees is just the latest betrayal of our constitution. Betraying the spirit of our founding is nothing new to the SCOTUS as they have been hard at work doing just that since 1934.
In this latest fiasco, the descenting justices were exactly right. Here we have a state that is literally under siege by illegal immigrants and Mexican drug lords. On the other hand, we have a federal government that refuses to enforce existing illegal immigration laws for political reasons. So, when the state passes law to protect its sovereignty by enforcing nothing more than the existing federal laws that are being ignored by the criminal regime in Washington D.C., the thuggish regime sues them and the supreme court of the land sides on the most part with this federal government? Say it isn't so! But, unfortunately, it is.
This is exactly like police refusing to stop a dangerous criminal from doing bodily harm to you, and when you shoot the criminal, charging you with murder. That sure can't happen in a country of laws, can it; one might ask. George Zimmerman would like to take exception with those idealists who think we have a blind justice system. But I digress.
The latest action of the SCOTUS shows once again that the notion of federalism is dead in the 21st century U.S. Despite the harm to a sovereign state, in the face of federal indifference, it seems that states are in a life and death struggle unless they happen to be progressive havens.
With a lawless executive branch undermining the essence of what America is all about - challenging not only anti illegal immigration statutes but anti election fraud attempts in multiple states along with other acts of defiance (of people's will) - there seems no end to this outrage. And now, we have a SCOTUS decision that rubber stamps this lawlessness. I am afraid to see the Obamacare decision due out on Thursday!
It has been clear for a while now that there is no choice but to defeat Democrats in November. The alternative is unthinkable and likely to result in upheaval that has not been seen since the civil war in this country. May God help us by giving the masses wisdom to see that their individual liberties are slipping by as they apathetically go through life.
