I have been listening to the poltial grandstanding from some Republicans who are attempting shift away from the fact the the entire political powers have abanded the problems of our southern border.
A few weeks ago, Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever made headlines when he claimed that the Federal Government had ordered the Border Patrol to stop arresting illegals entering the country and simply turn them back to the border.
And actually this may be something good for the American people. It proves that Jan Brewer has been telling the truth. That every Administration dating as far back as Nixon has been promising tougher border security on their way to the WH. Only to turn their backs on the problem after they were elected. This is not only presidential elections this goes out to the Body politics that have been usurping power forthe good of their own best interest, over and above serving to provide for the good of the country.
This is the kind of lunacy we have come to expect though from the political powers that reign in government making and sometimes breaking the law. .
They send Border Patrol agents into gunfights with heavily armed drug smugglers, telling them to use “bean bag” guns.
And I can run a page of past history of how this problem has been neglected. Yet we should epxect this to come from the Democrat Side. What about the ones who are suppsed to be conservatives? Why is it that many are not standing in support of Jan Brewer on this problem? It is also important to understand that the Sheriff has more power in his own county that the President of the United States. So instead of Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever ranting about what the President has done, Why doesn't he do what he has the authority to do? Hue and Cry! or Muster himself an irregular militia that is an "All Voluntary" group that would be serving as his Deputy Sheriffs just as a private citizen is entitled to do under the Constitution of the United States. The Federal Government is openly showing the people they are in control of this problem But they aren't coming out and telling them. Otherwise the people who are actually in charge of this country would be conducting that which was granted to them in the first place.
If you read the Two most important claims related to the powers of a County Sheriff. You find that the United States Supreme Court decided the Sheriff has the authority over deciding whether the people of his county must comply any federal laws that are passed. Even so, the Sheriff is also able to muster a group of volunteers who would be acting under his authority to ensure that criminal activities are not violated in his county. That includes the issues related to anyone who violates the US Codes or State and County Laws related to crossing into the United States by any other means execpt through border patrol Stations..
Confederacy is where you have two or more political factions that do what is in their own best interest and not in the best interest of the country as a whole.
When two political factions control the government, not tend to the problems the country faces; serving their own best interests looking out for the good of the country; it becomes no different than when they usurp power away from the body of the entire union. Putting at risk the entire tree to be spoiled
"If any member should attempt to usurp the supreme authority, they could not be supposed to have an equal authority and credit in all the confederate states. Were he to have too great influence over one, this would alarm the rest. Were he to subdue a part, that which would still remain free might oppose him with forces independent of those which he had usurped and overpower him before he could be settled in his usurpation.
"Should a popular insurrection happen in one of the confederate states the others are able to quell it. Should abuses creep into one part, they are reformed by those that remain sound. The state may be destroyed on one side, and not on the other; the confederacy may be dissolved, and the confederates preserve their sovereignty.
"As this government is composed of small republics, it enjoys the internal happiness of each; and with respect to its external situation, it is possessed, by means of the association, of all the advantages of large monarchies.''
