Free Arizona!

Secede!

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.

  1. I like the point that Alex Jones made that Barack Hussein Obama is violating the 11th Amendment to the Constitution by suing a state on behalf of foreign nationals.

  2. In the Old days, South Carolina would just nullfiy a major Federal Judicial ruling overturning its laws like what will probably happen to SB 1070. (I don’t think today’s Arizona will, of course.)

  3. (It doesn’t hurt to to have a viable race-neutral rationale to tout to Tea Party types when advocating for a White cause).

  4. We whupped you sec’esh once and wi’ll whup you ‘gain! Just kidding. Arizona will probably be the first to go. Then Texas, Oklahoma, 3 gulf coast states, S. Carolina, Tennesee, 3+ high plains states, than Alaska, Hawaii. Point of article, that it’s better if courts overrule Arizona, is also well taken; at this point, anything that increases racial, R/L, and DC/state tensions is all good. Just keep in mind that defense always loses. We have to attack toward and destroy the ZOG, not run away from it.

  5. My favorite part of this Arizona issue is for all the noise about boycotting AZ and how racist they are, not a single city has offered to take these illegals in as their own.

  6. As a native-born white Arizonan (the last one, seemingly), I can’t disagree with any point made here.

    Unfortunately, as radical as people think our legislators are, they’re still Republicans working within the “God Bless the USA!” paradigm, and thus would recoil at the suggestion that secession from the Union is a viable option — especially given how much of Arizona’s economy is dependent on federal largesse (military bases, National Parks, Indian Reservations, Raytheon, food stamps, and Social Security and pensions from ex-military retirees/snowbirds).

    Their attachment to Grover Norquist-style “low-tax, small government conservatism” has left the state unable to keep our highway rest stops open, let alone raise a militia or create any domestic industry that would lead to economic independence in the event of conflict with the federal government.

    I can only hope other, stronger states join the fight, because Arizona is utterly incapable of doing it alone. Not with her current batch of legislators, anyway.

  7. My favorite part of this Arizona issue is for all the noise about boycotting AZ and how racist they are, not a single city has offered to take these illegals in as their own.

    This is the angle that should be played. Always attack where people are weakest.

  8. “In the Old days, South Carolina would just nullify a major Federal Judicial ruling overturning its laws like what will probably happen to SB 1070. (I don’t think today’s Arizona will, of course.)”

    Yes.

    That’s the central difference between now and the days before the Civil War.

    It was interesting that someone as level-headed as Peter Brimelow, in his most recent VDare article, reiterated his recent statement that “all this is beginning to remind me of the last years before the outbreak of the Civil War.”

    But of course there was much more pro-secession sentiment in the South during even the 1850’s then there is now in the States which might be tempted to secede, especially amongst the elite classes.

    It will be a while yet before anything really interesting happens in this Country, assuming events don’t cause a great acceleration of this Country’s economic decline.

  9. Reginald: Americans are becoming more complacent with over-centralization. They used to identify more with their states, especially pre-Revolution and in the Southeast & Texas. Now, Americans support centralization of the U.S. the most, while we suffer from it the most-if you are looking for a sad case of irony.

    For a couple examples, Americans took it for granted that States could regulate their own marriage laws until the Supreme Court ruled on Loving v. Virginia in 1967. Americans used to take it for granted that education was a State responsibility. Now, the Federal Government is starting to take the role of regulating the Public School System; and the States are the new school districts, instead of the school districts being the units of a decision-making State.

  10. Reginald,

    We need to insert the idea of secession into the national discourse on immigration. We need people to start saying things like … if liberals care about the Union, they must see reason on the immigration issue.

  11. If secession ever happens again, I would not be surprised if it was a Southwestern state that led the exodus, Texas and Arizona being the most likely candidates.

  12. Hunter Wallace-Assuming you mean Pro-White Secession: If Cosmopolitian and White Texas did as you predict (probably unlikely, for nearly half-Brown Cosmopolitian Texas), I would predict a reunion with Mexico, by Brown Deep Southern Texas and the area (of TX) west of the Pescos River.

  13. “We need to insert the idea of secession into the national discourse on immigration. We need people to start saying things like … if liberals care about the Union, they must see reason on the immigration issue.”

    Excellent point.

    The frustration and anger is there, and if we can manage to make the idea of secession thinkable enough there’s a good chance it could take on a real momentum.

  14. There have already been a slew of books about secession by a number of authors aligned with the Tea Party movement. Matthew Bracken’s “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” trilogy, Boston T. Party’s “Molon Labe” and the first of them, “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross. I would say that most people in the “gun subculture” have read one or more of these books. Several were heavily advertised on gun forums on the web using banner ads.

    I also see secession brought up fairly regularly on mainstream conservative political sites, in both comments and articles. One of the latest books out is called “Nullification” by Thomas Woods Jr. It has been reviewed at Human Events and elsewhere.

    The 11th Amendment to the Constitution:

    “ The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State. ”

    How can colored attorney sue the State of Arizona on behalf of foreign nationals without violating The Constitution?

    Next thing you know the federal government will be suing in federal court on behalf of the Roman Catholic church, or the State of Israel, or subjects, or citizens of either—that happened recently didn’t it? 🙂

  16. Morphy sez:
    “I like the point that Alex Jones made that Barack Hussein Obama is violating the 11th Amendment to the Constitution by suing a state on behalf of foreign nationals.”

    Yes, it is getting pretty ridiculous.

    Just because you are president does not mean you can just do whatever you want and walk all over the citizens of any state because you feel they are not politically-correct, or they are not doing what you want. That is the behavior of the failed-state African dictators. It is not about just power, not just about Obama, but principles, freedom, the constitution, and the future of mankind. Someone should tell him that.

    Same thing with that great general he fired for speaking the truth. If I were president, I would never do that. If I did act intimidated (I wouldn’t, no matter who it was — even if I was not president) I would laugh about it, and I would respect the GENERALS because I need them, the country needs them, the troops need them. My ego would not matter.

    Things like this make me very worried about the future of our country along with the racial trends…

    As James Edwards has said, we are heading living in an “Idiocracy”.

  17. Obama is arguing that Congress makes suggestions, but the President makes the law. Surely the Judiciary finds that a bit offensive.
