T F Stern’s Rantings
In American History they taught that Florida was a depository for European criminals; but how long does it take to purge them from the voter rolls? It would appear Republican Gov. Rick Scott has been doing his part to make voter rolls match up with eligible voters; even asking Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security Department to assist in this effort. So why are the feds, specifically Eric Holder’s Justice Department, telling Florida to cease and desist cleaning up the mess?
“In a move that comes just months before the state could play a pivotal role in the 2012 presidential election, the U.S. Department of Justice contends that the state is violating federal law in its effort to identify and remove ineligible voters.”
You’d think the Justice Department would be in favor of removing ineligible voters; but you’d be wrong considering how corrupt these top law enforcement officers appear to be based on their recent past, failing to do anything about the New Black Panthers harassment of voters in Philadelphia and let’s not forget the Fast & Furious gun running fiasco in which our own federal agents placed automatic weapons in the hands of Mexico’s drug cartels and got at least one Boarder Guard killed with one of those weapons.
“Federal officials said that the procedures the state is using to identify non-U.S. citizens has not been reviewed to make sure they are not discriminatory. Florida must get approval for changes in voting procedures because five counties are still covered by the Voting Rights Act of 1965.”
So, why haven’t the procedures been reviewed? This would be like a gas station owner watching a fresh delivery of fuels being directed to the wrong storage tank, say thousands of gallons of Diesel fuel being poured into the Regular gasoline underground tanks. Rather than stop the delivery and clean out the Diesel fuel prior to customers filling up and damaging their fuel systems; according to the way the Feds operate it would be safer to wait until they knew for sure that Diesel fuel actually damaged gasoline engines; insanity or criminal negligence, either way the damage is done.
“A Department of Homeland Security official said Thursday that the federal agency is aware of Florida’s request but that there a “number of legal and operational challenges” to granting the state access.”
Let me get this straight, Homeland Security can’t help validate or cooperate with the State of Florida’s request to eliminate ineligible voters, primarily illegal aliens living in the State of Florida because of “legal and operational challenges.” Is that the same as saying the Department of Homeland Security would be unable to help because our current administration is so corrupt that it would be in our best interests to have illegal aliens continue to vote and cancel out actual American voters who want to cleanse the State of Florida and the United States of America and set things right?
Why hasn’t Eric Holder been thrown out on the street; better yet, why hasn’t he been indicted and sent off to prison? I’ll tell you why; spineless members of the “old guard” GOP, that’s why. They are so afraid of doing what is necessary that they’d rather just “get along” with the devil himself. Why isn’t Speaker of the House John Boehner demanding investigations; oh, I forgot, he’s out playing golf with Obama. These nasty pieces of business are better left to unimportant folks, expendable members of the GOP less likely to have support like California Rep. Darrell Issa.
When the government fails to represent “We The People” bad things eventually happen. Tyranny is a poor substitute for our constitutional republic and yet that is what we have when the rule of law is exchanged for corrupted politicians who’d rather remain in office than do their jobs.

Both quotes used come from the Virginia Ratifying Convention:
“The extent of the United States cannot render this government oppressive. The powers of the general government are only of a general nature, and their object is to protect, defend, and strengthen the United States; but the internal administration of government is left to the state legislatures, who exclusively retain such powers as will give the states the advantages of small republics, without the danger commonly attendant on the weakness of such governments.”
“The powers of the general government relate to external objects, and are but few. But the powers in the states relate to those great objects which immediately concern the prosperity of the people. Let us observe, also, that the powers in the general government are those which will be exercised mostly in time of war, while those of the state governments will be exercised in time of peace.”
