Democrats who couldn’t be bothered with the Constitution while nationalizing health care have now discovered it is a useful thing to beat
over the head with. Arizona
While it is encouraging to know that some liberals have embraced the 4th Amendment, it is disappointing that they skipped over the 1st and 2nd to get there, and then stopped reading before the got to the 9th and 10th.
Am I the only one that sees the irony in liberal outrage over non-citizens possibly being asked to produce identification, while at the same time they (Senator Chuck Schumer) propose mandatory implants of bio-chips into citizens to track our financial and health histories?
This is the kind of bizarre contradiction that is created when power replaces principle and representation turns to rule. It’s not that Libertarians object to protecting individuals from their government; we have been driving that bus for 40 years. It’s just that we haven’t seen Democrats riding shotgun for quite some time.
But there is no high principle motivating the socialists here. This has nothing to do with concern for the welfare of illegal immigrants or with respect for the Constitution; it is all about power and control.
Don’t be fooled - what the D.C. socialists are really outraged about is that a state (
the audacity to act on its own rather than take its marching orders from . Not just any state, but one with a woman
governor who isn’t a Democrat, if we want to be honest about what really gets
under their skin. Washington
Will the liberal Democrats go berserk if
passes a law enforcing mandatory
health insurance when that kicks in? Oh,
no…..that’s different. Would they forego their 16,000 new IRS agents
to beef up border security so that states don’t have to take matters into their
own hands? Dream on. Will they call for
a boycott of any state that checks concealed carry permits? Oops, wrong Amendment. Wisconsin
Empires can not allow their colonies to assert sovereignty, and we have lapsed back into empire. The capital has moved from
London to , but both are
light years removed from the reality imposed on us subjects out here in the
hinterlands. They take more and more of
our money, and they give us more and more rules to follow. Washington
King Barack and Queen Nancy are trying to stomp out a growing rebellion among the colonies – opting out of health care, tackling illegal immigration, rejecting federal drug laws, setting marriage criteria, protecting gun rights, organizing tea parties, and other unthinkable acts of insubordination.
To all those rebellious states and uppity citizens, I say “good on ya”. And to all the liberals who have come around to the idea that government should stay out of the illegal immigrants’ business, I say “congratulations”. Now just add citizens and legal immigrants to your list, and you just might be a Libertarian.
The first American Revolution was fought with bullets and blood; the second is being fought with ballots and blogs.
is just a skirmish along the way to restoring our Constitution and replacing
our empire with a representative republic once again. Arizona
