This action tells us two things: What the Federal Government will try to do; and what local governments are willing to allow their own party to get away with! While the pretext for this seems innocuous enough (allowing military planes to fly over an urban area), the much more salient point is that the Obama Administration is pushing to see how far it can go. Beyond that, they are conditioning citizens to accept such overreaches as normal and expedient. As Tip O’Neal famously noted, however, ”There are no coincidences in politics.” IOW, there is a reason behind everything that politicians do.
What starts out as a seemingly innocent and necessary infringement (like, say, a “background” check – unless, of course, one is the Commander in Chief – astonishingly, no background check or security clearance required in order to be trusted with the nuclear launch codes…) leads to consequences never envisioned by most people, but which were the ultimate design of the politicians all along. This is the way Constitutions are rendered meaningless. The People (and even well-meaning elected officials…if there still are such things) simply start allowing “small” things which are not authorized, and eventually they don’t even bother to consider the issue, as the precedent (of performing unconstitutional and thereby illegal “official” government acts) has long been set.
MOST of what our government does today – literally, the vast majority of it – is completely outside of the very limited authority (specifically enumerated powers) granted to it by the sovereign People, under the Constitution – the Supreme Law of the Land. Our system has been so turned on its head by our oligarchic rulers that while overreaching without our permission, and in opposition to the chains of the Constitution which were intended to bind their hands from committing such abuses into nearly every aspect of our lives, these petty tyrants (Congress, Executive, and Courts) also refuse to do the few things which they are authorized and expected to do under the authority of the Constitution: protect our lives (those of the unborn, as well as the living via our ever-so-porous borders), our liberties (which they now abuse by regulating us to a degree which would have scarcely been imaginable to the founders), and our property (which they now take at will through the extra-legal theft, and cavalier redistribution of the fruits of our labor to those who choose not to work). But it is even worse than that….
When we here in Arizona sought to do what the federal government has flatly refused to do – protect our borders – the absurdly-named “justice” department filed suit to prevent us from exercising our God-given right of protecting ourselves and our property. When states have sought to preserve the sanctity of the vote from blanket abuse and fraud – something no doubt required under federal law, Eric Holder has once again gone to court to prevent virtually every obvious, commonsense measure duly enacted by the People’s authorized representatives. Never have we witnessed or experienced such an egregious and brazen abuse of power since the days of King George, and his own abuses paled in comparison to those of our current illegitimate and “unenlightened” monarch! The result is that we no longer live under the Rule of Law.
