Here we are in the United States — where citizenship has been imbued with, literally, the blood and honor of patriots who defeated tyrants and rival (different) nations — having to bear witness to the self-inflicted destruction of the very notions of citizenship and self-governance.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arizona state law that requires people registering to vote in federal elections to show proof of citizenship. In a 7-2 vote, the court said the voter registration provision of the 2004 state law, known as Proposition 200, was trumped by a federal law, the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. <source>
The Supreme Court has once again kicked America in the face via Arizona and made sure that illegal immigrants are able to make it to the polls to vote for national representatives, who will in turn presumably return the favor and vote them a big fat pile of amnesty.
All because a law was passed in 1993 by Bill Clinton (D), a Democrat majority in House, and a Democrat party majority in the Senate, designed to create more voters who lean overwhelming towards Liberal Democrats.
The Supreme Court decision ignores the cold reality of today’s high level of illegal immigration — estimated to be at least 12 million and as much as 20 million people. Indeed in the 2012 presidential election the legal (+ illegal?) latino voting block pulled the lever for the outspoken Socialist/Marxist by a ratio of 3 to 1.
Not to be outdone, the following story recently appeared in New York City:
A controversial proposal in New York City to give voting rights to hundreds of thousands of non-citizen immigrants could make them into a key vote in America’s largest city. …if New York City approves its plan to give its 800,000 legal immigrants a say in city politics, illegal immigrants could eventually join the voter rolls there as well. And they wouldn’t have to wait for citizenship to vote. <source>
That’s right, an estimated 800,000 illegal immigrants in New York City might be allowed to choose the next Mayor.
Let’s cut to the chase: this kind of self-immolation by a nation can only be diagnosed and not rationally understood, so I will do the former and not the latter.
The diagnosis is obvious:
Lupus erythematosus Americanus
According to Wikipedia,
Lupus erythematosus is a name given to a collection of autoimmune diseases, in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. Symptoms of these diseases can affect many different body systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, and lungs. <source>
Yes, Liberals are hyper-active in their demolition of our heritage and freedoms;
Yes, Liberals delight in attacking healthy institutions and replacing them with malignant institutions;
Yes, Liberal policies attack and weaken nearly every major organ of American greatness;
Yes, Lupus Erythematosus Americanus is a collection of autoimmune diseases, including a porous border with the failed state called Mexico, the willful indulgence of voting rights for illegal immigrants, the systematic abuse of power by the current president in which the Justice Department and the IRS are used to prosecute and shake down his political enemies and the free press, the willful destruction of the greatest health care system in the world, the willful fiscal hemorrhaging whereby total national debt has gone from $10 trillion to $17 trillion in just five years under Barack Obama while the economy has stood relatively still at $14 trillion…I could go on and on.
We are afflicted by our own selves, and we had better find the antidote soon.
