Feds knock down Arizona Law Requiring Voters Prove Citizenship

The war against national identity rages on:

A federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a key part of Arizona's law requiring voters to prove they are citizens before registering to vote and to show identification before casting ballots.

The decision by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the law requiring voters to prove their citizenship while registering is inconsistent with the National Voter Registration Act. That federal law allows voters to fill out a mail-in voter registration card and swear they are citizens under penalty of perjury, but doesn't require them to show proof as Arizona's law does.

This dilutes the meaning of being an American while advancing the interests of Third-World colonizers and their sponsors in government. Indeed, this will be a tremendous boost for government bureaucracy, which can never get enough future clients.

All done in the name of helping the poor, of course:

In a statement, one of the attorneys who argued the case said his group was "elated" by the decision.

"This will enable the many poor people in Arizona who lack driver's licenses and birth certificates to register to vote," said Jon Greenbaum, legal director for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

Illegal immigrants win, the government wins, and guess who gets the bill?

The real significance of this story is that DC's continuing and escalating war against the people of Arizona validates the League of the South's view that States' Rights, cultural preservation, crime prevention, and the protection of jobs are not separate issues. DC's assault on State sovereignty is just one front in its mad jihad against America's traditional culture, which both backstabbing big business and government parasites see as an impediment to be eliminated.

That's why looking to some champion in DC to stop this madness is futile. Our only hope is to restore the sovereignty of the people of the States. Fortunately, DC's destructive policies are rapidly undermining the Federal government's legitimacy and control.

Know hope.

The game is rigged! Stop playing, Arizona! The solutions are simple, though not necessarily easy: nullification, secession.

"This dilutes the meaning of being an American while advancing the interests of Third-World colonizers and their sponsors in government."

Are you serious? These "southrons" keep talking about how this is no longer a government of, by, and for the people. That's not entirely true. Don't you know that America is everyone's country? Next we just need to get a few of everyone else in office. Besides, it's democracy stupid.

I might give you the for part though.

Are they KIDDING?! I don't think I can facepalm hard enough for this. Not that our votes have seemed to matter much for at least a century.

I think we should all go vote in Mexico's elections to even things out.

Dustin in Nashville, judging from our own elections, do you think it would even have an impact?

Thank you, David Smith!

This is the salient point that gets lost in the debate on State sovereignty issues. If you put yourself in the position of begging for DC's permission to do something, then you're NOT sovereign. Stop begging for permission to do the things God has already given us the power and the right to do.

DC will NEVER slap itself on the wrist and say, 'We were a bad government! Sorry, we won't do it again. Case dismissed.' Those who go to tyrants for justice may as well unzip and relieve themselves into the wind. The end result will be the same either way.
