One Reporter's Opinion - The Systematic Dismantling of America

Friday, 03 December 2004 12:00 AM

First it was Proposition 187, passed overwhelmingly by the people of California Nov. 8, 1994 to deny public benefits to illegal aliens in California. The very next day lawsuits were filed by MALDEF, LULAC, the ACLU, and others.

That's where the struggle began in our court system to reverse the will of the people. It led to the recall of Governor Davis - but only after the Governor and the Latino activists killed Proposition 187.

It was predictable that when the people of Arizona overwhelmingly passed Proposition 200 (the ghost of 187) that the same groups would set out to reverse this proposition, too. Sure enough, the federal judge has blocked the proposition, saying attorneys raised serious questions about its constitutionality and its potential conflicts with federal law.

U.S. District Judge David Bury granted a restraining order and set December 22 as the date to hear evidence for and against the anti-illegal immigration measure. The action came only a few hours after a prominent Hispanic organization, MALDEF, filed a lawsuit challenging the popular initiative and only a day before Arizona's governor, Janet Napolitano, was to proclaim it as law.

The framers of Proposition 200 had expressed confidence that the measure was carefully written and would withstand constitutional challenges.

But in the complaint filed by MALDEF, they claimed Proposition 200 turned state employees into immigration agents, denied benefits covered by federal law, and could discourage thousands of Arizonans from voting.

The attorneys sued on behalf of dozens of plaintiffs, including illegals, their children, and all of the aforementioned groups.

The judge's decision is widely considered a blow to Proposition 200; but the judge also wrote that the court is not ruling on the merits of the measure - that he lacks sufficient information to reach a conclusion on the constitutionality, that the court finds itself "in an extremely undesirable situation" in delaying the proposition's implementation.

And the judge added, "A majority of Arizona voters cast their ballots in favor of Proposition 200 and this court is loathe to disregard their decision; but on the other hand, the court is obligated to uphold the Constitution of the United States, even when to do so stands in opposition to popular opinion."

So, here we go again - the will of the people is being held up if not reversed, as the game of legal blackmail continues. And, mind you, all of this legal tug-of-war goes on in our own courts as those opposed to our way of life and the sovereignty of the United States of America challenge the heart of our country.

As my friend Frosty Wooldridge said in response to this latest maneuver, "Our president and this congress are dismantling America by design. Call it multiculturalism or diversity or one world government or globalism. In the end, it will mean the finish of the USA as a free, cohesive, sustainable and functioning society."

Hark back to George Orwell's book, "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved on the Ministry of Truth building:

WAR IS PEACE

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

But there is still hope. In the Arizona vote, 47% of the Latinos voted in favor of Proposition 200. Americans of all races, creeds and colors may yet determine to save the sovereignty of America. Let's hope and pray.
