Barack Obama’s Mason-Dixon Line.
The Mason-Dixon Line was the resolution of a border dispute between the then British colonies of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and West Virginia. It was named after the surveyors who undertook the task between 1763 and 1767, Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. The Mason-Dixon line was some 233 miles in length. It later became the demarcation between the ‘Yankee North’ and the South ‘Dixie’.
Later on, it became known as the line between the ‘free’ North and the slave South, in particular between Pennsylvania and Maryland. During the 1800s, and particularly during the Civil War, it became the infamous Mason-Dixon line, marking the separation line between the Federal Unionist north and the Confederate south. There are no boundaries separating North and South any longer. There is a definite border between the United States of America and Mexico.
Our government, under Barack Hussein Obama, chooses to act as though we have no border, and in point of fact encourages the flood of illegals coming through. His Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, makes absolutely asinine statements such as, ‘The Border Patrol is better staffed now than at any time in its history’. Such statements fool no one. I’ve detailed in this column over the last eighteen months how Barack Obama has systematically stripped the southern border of over four hundred Border Patrol officers.
Our international border has become a war zone for the southern border states. California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas are the fronts in this war, with heavily-armed drug gangs coming and going at will, with Border Patrol officers being outgunned, shot at and assaulted at an ever increasing pace, with American citizens being ravaged and murdered on their own property, with millions of illegal aliens sapping the lifeblood of this country and its legitimate citizens. This government has much to answer for.
In self defense, one state has stood against the federal behemoth. Arizona has passed a law reinforcing existent federal laws already on the books, which successive administrations have failed to do. Now, the DeMarxist administration of Barack Obama is attacking Arizona for defending its clearly defined state’s right, claiming it to be unconstitutional. What is unconstitutional is the entire regime behind that suit.
Arizona is no longer alone in her stand against Eric Holder and the MaoBama White House. So far, nine other states have come out in support of Arizona and are actively seeking to enact laws of their own… Michigan, Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia… in addition to the Northern Mariana Islands. Looks like the Marianas take their borders seriously anyway. By the way, California, in all its hallucinatory arrogance, has the exact same laws already on the books that Arizona passed.
Obama has his own new Mason-Dixon Line. This time, there is no Confederacy. This time, it’s American citizens standing up to a tyrannical regime. Time is running out for the DeMarxists, and that makes them more dangerous than ever. There is a chilling article on RedState by Gary Bentley, entitled “Revolution Or Civil War, It’s Your Choice”.
It’s a nightmare scenario, like something out of a mystery thriller, though there’s not a damn thing funny about where this whole thing could go if we don’t get a real handle on it this November.
