The Obama administration has sued Arizona to block enforcement of SB 1070.
This move is calculated to set a precedent that will stop other states (Tennessee) and cities (Fremont) from following Arizona’s example. The Obama administration has lost the battle for public opinion and is now relying on threats, boycotts, and lawsuits to thwart real immigration reform.
The federal government will probably win their lawsuit. SB 1070 will be struck down. The Far Left and Hispanic chauvinist groups will declare victory. This will present White Nationalists with an opportunity to score points at the expense of conservative moderates.
Arizonans and Middle America will recoil in disgust at the latest example of federal overreach. The legitimacy of the federal government will plunge to new record lows. It will be an opportune time to inject memes into the mainstream political conservation.
Since no one else is doing it, I want to start a conversation about why Arizona should secede from the United States. Here are several reasons that justify that course of action:
But first, a cool YouTube video, brave men who said NO to Washington, DC:
Sorry for the indulgence, I just get a thrill every time I see the DC imperial flag in retreat.
1.) The federal government refuses to protect the states from invasion. It even goes so far to encourage the invasion. The federal government has failed to perform its constitutional obligations. It has violated our national contract. The states are thereby released from their obligations under that contract.
2.) Arizonans played by the rules. They wanted to crackdown on illegal immigration and secured reform through the proper channels. The federal government is now trying to nullify their actions by judicial fiat. Now that the door to legal reform is being closed, which has exposed democracy as a farce, Arizonans should consider other options.
3.) The federal government is unwilling to secure the borders. Barack Obama and George W. Bush, Democrats and Republicans, have an identical policy on immigration. Throwing the Democrats out and replacing them with Republicans isn’t going to solve the problem.
4.) The federal government is hopelessly corrupt. Sending a fresh round of politicians to DC (remember 1994?) won’t change Beltway culture. It will only start the cycle of corruption all over again.
5.) If White Arizonans stay within the Union, they are guaranteed minority status. The federal government won’t secure the border and will strike down reform at the state and local level. The children of illegal aliens are U.S. citizens and will eventually usurp control over the state government.
The choice is submission or secession. Holding out hope for some kind of Tea Party led national reformation of American immigration policy is a pie in the sky fantasy. The Tea Party is already infected by Dick Armey Republicans who will ride the movement into power and forget about it once they are entrenched in power.
