Liberty-minded states asserting their rights is one of the more effective methods we restore this country.

Norwood mostly.
Deval is figuring out any venue to continue running roughshod on the citizens as we speak.

When will he leave us alone?

Az has it right, hopefully Brewer has no "accident" that takes her out.

Of course Holder and the DOJ will be falling all over themselves to sue AZ again.

I've been to AZ once and it's a state where I could live. Well, I could if I won a gazillion dollars in the lottery and could live in Sedona. Failing that, it might be Flagstaff which for some reason reminded me of NH the short time I was there.

Sad that this is news. Shouldn't this be How it is SUPPOSED to work? You know...enforce the laws on the books?
Yes, it certainly should. This announcement has been a big deal in the news here the past few days. I was listening to the local news on the radio this morning while driving to work. They were interviewing one of Gov. Brewer's aids, and he reiterated several times that this was nothing more than an assertion/reminder of laws already on the books. He said that the current [federal] administration clearly has it's own agenda, but Arizona will continue business as usual.

I'm waiting for a governor with enough sack to openly defy the DOJ by ignoring its authority and that of federal courts. In fact, go one better by arresting federal cops and officials.

Or call out the AZ National Guard , before the village idiot in DC does.

Wouldn't that be interpreted as a coup? I think it would be interested to see it take place but it could cause the hammer to fall on that governor and that state.

A) It's not a coup d'etat. Look up its definition.

B) It's an assertion of state's rights at the least and outright secession at the most.

C) Governors are not powerless. They are surrounded by state police forces and depending on how hard they want to press it, they might just order the NG to disobey federal authority. You also forget the fact that outside the northeast, county sheriffs are a) true LE, b) elected officials, and c) bound by state law to assist state goverment.

I wasn't saying it was a coup but I think the media will call it that. And I would bet that Texas would follow suit with Arizona.

I know a bunch of Texans that would come to the aid of Arizona and we have a couple guns amongst us. We could mount a formidable Militia.

The problem is probably pretty obvious, at least to most. The more you coddle or make some activity more inviting, comfortable and shameless, you're going to get more of it.

Classic example of "tax what you don't want and subsidize what you want".

So we should expect more illegal immigration because public policy encourages it.
