Immigration

Immigration has been a hot topic of late. I try and be a nice guy about such things, but this is getting really old. Federal authorities are simply not enforcing immigration law, and it is proving to be a financial drain as well as a security threat to our country. Because of this, many states are writing legislation to help curb the levels of illegal immigration into their borders.

A judge recently ruled that using criminal trespass charges against an illegal immigrant pursuant to their status as an illegal immigrant is unconstitutional. OK...let me see if I understand this; the judge effectively said the following...

  1. There is no concurrent jurisdiction for immigration law with local authorities.
  2. Any law that acts in concert with a federal law to restriction particular behaviors is unconstitutional.

What this tells me is that all state drug laws are now unconstitutional. It also tells me that laws against murder are unconstitutional. Laws against theft are unconstitutional. Laws against battery are now unconstitutional. The first is directly covered by federal law, and the rest are covered as civil rights, which is of course under federal jurisdiction for those rights (other rights that are guaranteed by individual states (but not by the federal government) may be protected by the states).

Ultimately though, what this tells me is that the judiciary has gone completely insane. How did a jurist like Clarence Thomas arise from this septic tank of legal chicanery? This woman just invented law out of whole cloth!

My ideas for what could be done to help this country immensely:

  1. Make public referendum available on a federal level.
  2. Allow for the impeachment of judges through popular vote.
  3. Ban all executive level departments that are not expressly allowed on a Constitutional level (So long EPA! See ya Department of Education! Hasta la vista Department of Energy!).
  4. Initiate a flat tax as described by the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_tax
  5. Begin the restoration of state level power, by correctly phrasing my sentences as follows (when appropriate): 'The United States are...' That would be the first step in making others realize that the states are Constitutionally the real powerhouses (as far as government goes).
  6. Repeal the 1986 gun ban.
  7. Put the army on the border. We are being invaded. The army is the organization to stop that invasion.

Our country is sliding into the ocean, and all the liberals want to do is spend, spend, spend.

Liberals believe every theory which is contrary to human nature. They apply these theories and they never work, but liberals think that if they try them again and again that the outcome will be different.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. I think this fits liberals to a tee.

Liberals believe a lot of things. Insanely, I think they honestly believe they're right sometimes.

That's what frightens me.
