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.
“The feds dont need to resort to anything as crude as using direct force....”
Ya might want to think about that a little bit...
“... in May 2010 “ the US federal budget deficit was $83 billion, or about $8.90 per person per day. Now the Washington Times (hat tip: the American Thinker) reports that the US government has posted its largest monthly deficit in history, $223 billion in February. Now that means that the US government borrowed nearly $26 per person per day. “
I could not find the change from March 2011 to 2012....but a TRIPLING from 2010 to 2011 means the end game is right around the corner...IMHO. Arizona knows it. California denies it.
“All they have to do is hold back funding until Arizona gives in- and give in they will.”
Well, Braveheart, all the states need to do is refuse to send federal receipts onto Washington. I bet you never thought of that. If you had, you wouldn’t have made the stupid post quoted above.
Not so. Remember where the feds got that "federal money" in the first place. If they have money left over after they do the stuff they're SUPPOSED to do, with which to bribe states to participate in unConstitutional schemes against the wishes of THEIR taxpayers, it means the feds have overcharged and that amount may justifiably be withheld from federal tax payments.
When Feds withhold rightful money going to Arizona..... Arizona announces it is asking all Arizona taxpayers to send Federale taxes to Arizona state Gov’t to be held in escrow. Then used in place of Federale funds witheld
