PHOENIX -- Voters could get the right to overrule federal laws and mandates under the terms of an initiative filed late Thursday.
The Arizona Constitution already says the federal Constitution "is the supreme law of the land." This measure, if approved in November, it would add language saying that federal document may not be violated by any government -- including the federal government.
More to the point, it would allow Arizonans "to reject any federal action that they determine violates the United States Constitution."
That could occur through a vote of the state House and Senate with consent of the governor.
But that also could occur through a popular vote on a ballot measure, effectively allowing voters to decide which federal laws they feel infringe on Arizona's rights as a sovereign state.

Damn. I may end up moving to Arizona yet...
If its not between the States its none of the feds business...
Thought you guys might find this interesting.
Oh the horror of it all ... voters could override the Fed. Oh, the horror of it all. LET FREEDOM RING.
Have you seen this thread Jinx?
Interesting times coming possibly.
AZ is poised to be Ground Zero for for standing its ground against this lawless Regime.
It is simply a matter of being righteously pi**ed. And, justifiably so!
” - - - effectively allowing voters to decide which federal laws they feel infringe on Arizona’s rights as a sovereign state.”
Newton said: “For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.”
Duh, Traitor John Roberts decided that the SCOTUS has the right to tax EVERYBODY, sooooooooooooo, the good citizens of Arizona are going to interpret the Constitution the way that THEY want to.
What goes around comes around.
“moving to Arizona yet..”
My first reaction, also! And I love the snow:(
This has been tried before. Twice. I think we’ve learned just who has the bigger stick. Arizona is dependent on the Federal government anyway through block-grants. This is the 21st century. The feds don’t need to resort to anything as crude as using direct force. All they have to do is hold back funding until Arizona gives in- and give in they will.
Flagstaff is at 7,000 feet, and gets plenty of snow. That is where I would move if I went to Arizona.
Glad to see the states beginning to give the feds the finger. Turnabout is fair play.
I’m really liking the Republicans in Arizona and Wisconsin.
They are conservative and know how to play hardball.
The actual basis for the Civil War...
The seeds of unrest....socialism vs liberty and the Constitution
I find it interesting that none of this is necessary in a constitutional republic. Conservatives didn’t create this dilemma. Most of us would be OK, for example, if California voted to go Communist so long as the rest of our states were left alone. The current crisis can be blamed ENTIRELY on the left who are intent on forcing everyone, in every state, to bend to the leftist’s will. Even worse, these evil control freaks want to up their game to a global scale.
For a “Civil War” you have to have 2 sides willing to fight each other. We have nothing to gain from fighting the left and the left have nothing to fight us with LoL.
I think we can convince both sides that both would be a lot happier if we did not live together under the same overbearing central government.
