Should Arizona secede from the United States? Texas has seriously thought this for years, and even other states have done so as well, but given the fact that the United States has turned a cold shoulder against Arizona because of their immigration law, should they secede?
It is very strange that even though other states have had such immigration laws pass, such as Missouri, and even the Federal immigration law is basically the same as Arizonas', the current administration of the US, the Obama administration, wants everyone to think that it is a violation of the constitution. But it isn't. And because of the backlash that the Obama administration has started against Arizona, what with the boycotts and such, should they secede from the Union?
President James Buchanan said during the State of the Union address on December 3, 1860, "The fact is that our Union rests upon public opinion, and can never be cemented by the blood of its citizens shed in civil war. If it can not live in the affections of the people, it must one day perish. Congress possesses many means of preserving it by conciliation, but the sword was not placed in their hand to preserve it by force." We are not to be forced by the government to follow all of their standards because we are supposed to be sovereign. Thomas Jefferson also said "If any state in the Union will declare that it prefers separation...to a continuance in union... I have no hesitation in saying, 'let us separate.' " Thomas Jefferson stated this, and he has been called the smartest politician of all time! Look at what John F. Kennedy said about Thomas Jefferson during a White House Dinner Party with special dignitaries "I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."
So Presidents alike has stated that secession is allowed if the states are not satisfied with how the government is doing things. And if the State of Arizona, or even Texas were to secede, they could then take care of the borders the way they want to. Adopt the laws that most other countries have, like imprison the illegals, or if they shoot, then they should shoot back at them as well. If drugs are being run, then you have the ability to shoot the offenders and this way, the courts will no longer be clogged up with meaningless lawsuit and incarceration cases. The constitution could be adopted and followed the way it was meant to be, without all these fool-hardy attorneys and politicians trying to change the amendments by finding grey areas - something that there should be no grey areas, only right or wrong. There should be no middle ground.
If Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico should secede, that means that Colorado would probably join, and a few other states as well. By the way, talk of secession is NOT a treasonable offense. You have every right to want to do what is right for the people. So if secession is in the works for the State of Arizona, or Texas - well, Thomas Jefferson would agree with you. So would John F. Kennedy, who in todays standards would be classified as a conservative! Funny, isn't it?
