It was the battle cry attributed to Texian soldiers on April 21st, 1836, when the Texian army attacked Santa Anna near LynchBurg Ferry, leading to the capture of the Santa Anna and essentially ending Mexican controland paving the way for the birth of the Texas Republic.
I've often said that I think history goes in cycles and will eventually repeat itself, as we are seeing today. Once again, we find ourselves under invasion by our neighbors to the south. Again, we find that this invasion threatens our sovereignty. Again, we find one of our territories (states) fighting to defend and protect itself from invasion, only to be blindsided and struck down, but this time, they were not defeated by a military force vastly superior in numbers, but instead by the very federal government sworn to protect it. Once again, we need to heed the battle cry of REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!, but instead, it is Arizona that must be remembered.
Liberal U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton's decision on Wednesday blocking many of the Arizona's enforcement law provisions highlights a much greater danger to these United States than the impact of immigration. Instead, it shows the arrogance of an out of control federal government intent on imposing it's will upon this nation, despite the rule of law and in direct contradiction to it's governing document, the Constitution.
First, let us be clear, the Arizona enforcement law is not an "immigration" law. It does not determine who can or cannot enter this country, it does not set limits nor restrictions on immigration, nor does it contradict the federal law concerning immigration, instead, it compliments and aids in the enforcement of that law. It seeks only to rightfully enforce the rule of law that bars those illegally entering our nation and allowing the states to fill the void left by federal authorities.
The Judge Bolton ruling is in direct defiance of state's rights as defined by the Constitution. It is living proof that the federal government is guilty of selective enforcement of law, choosing only to enforce those laws that will provide for a growing government and ignoring those that do not or constrain government. It is clear that Obama is courting for the Hispanic vote, doing anything necessary to secure that vote, even if that means defying this countries founding principals and leaving a state helpless to defend itself. It is clear that this administration cares not what it's people want, cares not about the rule of law (except when it benefits them), and cares not about enslaving the states to federal power, but instead, seeks only to further its ideology and ensuring the subservient nature of it's citizenship to the ruling class.
So therefore, I say to you, REMEMBER ARIZONA!! come November. Remember that, if a state has no liberty, neither does it's resident. We must stop this tyranny that our government is forcing upon us and return to the values of our founding. We must seek to cut back and limit the power of our federal government, else we risk our freedom to it's rule. Again, as history repeats itself, we risk becoming a country that loses itself to a well spoken dictator, intent on leading us down a road to destruction. This country was not created, nor formed, by a benevolent, all powerful central government, but instead by a collection of free states. It was this revolutionary idea that allowed this country to grow and succeed in becoming the greatest nation in history. We cannot lose our way now, after having come so far. So in November, I beg of you, REMEMBER ARIZONA!
