Arizona Boycotts

A week or so ago, Obama said of the Arizona boycotts, "I don't endorse boycotts or not endorse boycotts."

Clearly this man needs to take a remedial class on our Constitution.

Stated clearly in the Commerce Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3), the federal government is granted the power "to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes". So, not only should he and Congress "not endorse boycotts," but they should actually prohibit them. Instead of enforcing this clause for its intended purpose, he uses it to infringe on our liberties with powers undesignated to him, like the health care takeover.

The federal government should promote legal immigration and combat illegal immigration. The Constitution's Preamble states, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." We cannot "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity" if we do not protect and preserve the integrity of our borders.
