STATE BY STATE: WE’RE TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK

With Arizona's New Law, the Worm Turns
U.S. attorney Eric Holder doesn’t like Arizona’s SB 1070 that addresses illegal aliens in that state. Unfortunately, he failed to read it! It mirrors federal statutes voted into law in 1986. President Barack Obama thinks it’s misguided, but again, he didn’t read it. Our U.S. Congress continues its indolent dance through the corridors of power while doing next to nothing—while citizens in fifty states celebrate with a 73 percent approval rating supporting Arizona’s right to secure its borders. Arizona expects to eject 460,000 illegal aliens—creating financial, criminal, medical, educational and incarceration havoc in that state. Ten other states enjoy legislators expecting to introduce SB 1070 in their own states.
La Raza, Maldef, Lulac and other open borders advocates hate the law—because it works!
Much like the wisdom of our third president Mr. Thomas Jefferson, he said that ultimate power must be administered by the states in the Union because they best could handle their own problems. For the past 30 years, the Federal Government under five presidents and Congresses—failed on every level to enforce immigration laws throughout the country, whether at the border or internally. The Congress winked, nodded, curtsied and blinked while 20 million illegal aliens walked, danced, lied, cheated, stole, forged and overstayed their visas into America.
Corporations like McDonald’s, Tyson Chicken, Hormel, Swift, Armor, Marriott and dozens of others lied, cheated and displaced American workers out of jobs—all in the name of profits and undermining American workers. In every state, roofing companies, construction firms, landscapers, contract painters and hotel-restaurant chains lied (still lie) through their teeth to hire illegals. Ski resorts and summer camps lied, cheated and hired incredible numbers of illegal aliens—for obscene profits.
Every time any citizens attempted to inject the ‘rule of law’ into the equation, they suffered names like ‘racist’, ‘xenophobe’, ‘nativist’ and ‘hate-monger’. In reality, they demanded nothing more than the rule of law applied against those that broke the law!
While illegals rioted in the streets of Phoenix, Arizona when Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, Americans from sea to shining sea said, “It’s about time!”
Today, ten other states including Pennsylvania, Minnesota, South Carolina and Texas stand in line to enact similar laws using the Arizona template.
As the worm turns, and as said so often in history, when the people lead, the leaders will follow. Fancy that!
During the days before Brewer’s signing the bill, U.S. Senator John McCain, perhaps the most ineffectual senator as to border security for over 30 years, stepped up to the microphone to urge Governor Brewer to sign the bill. Why? He’s about to lose his senate seat that he cherishes more than life itself! Why would anyone hang onto the seat of power well beyond his useful years? Hubris! False pride and ego gratification! He’s been an ineffective senator for three decades.
Note that Thomas Jefferson urged ‘term limits’ back in 1776! He knew that old men hate to give up their power—just like the ‘royals’ of Europe—whom he hated!
This past week, former vice-presidential candidate and ‘former’ open-borders and amnesty proponent Sarah Palin joined Brewer in voicing support for the state’s immigration law.
Both Brewer and Palin blamed Obama for the state law, saying the measure is Arizona’s attempt to enforce immigration laws because the federal government won’t do it.
“It’s time for Americans across this great country to stand up and say, “‘We’re all Arizonans now,’” said Palin. “And in clear unison we say, ‘Mr. President: do your job! Secure our borders!’”
At that, I slap my jeans; roll my eyes, and wonder, “What took you so long Sarah?”
Why does it take millions of disgruntled Americans to join the Tea Party Movement before our U.S. Congress moves toward the task of securing our borders? They all placed their hand on the Bible, save two that placed their hands on the Koran, and swore to uphold the laws of this country. I wouldn’t expect anyone that swore on the Koran to do anything but destroy this country, but I DO expect Americans that swore on the Bible—to uphold our Constitution.

It’s about time you Barack Obama learn to lead or get out of the way. It’s about time you senators and House reps lead, or step out of the way—the bell tolls and it tolls for all of you hopeless Congress critters.
