Well, that’s not quite right.

This isn’t really a message from the Arizona tourism bureau.

But, if no one else is going to stand up for Arizona, I sure will.

Not only am I not participating in the boycott of the state over its common-sense stand on the illegal-alien invasion, I am actively promoting tourism there. I find myself looking for a reason to visit the fair state – support it, praise the people of Arizona for standing up and acting courageously, doing something that will not only benefit Arizonans but all Americans as well.

We should all have such state leadership in this country.

What exactly is it that has Barack Obama and his minions in such an uproar?

They say it isn’t “fair” to ask people on the street for identification because of suspicion they might be illegal aliens.

Ironically, the same people who make this claim have no problem promoting national ID cards for all Americans. They have no problem with intrusive Census questions for all Americans. They have no problem with invasive tax returns. They have no problem with requiring ID checks at the White House and the Congress of the United States. They have no problem with ID checks just to get in the door of virtually every government building in Washington, D.C. They don’t even have a problem with profiling Americans, as long as the profiling is of military veterans, churchgoers, patriots, opponents of abortion and tea-party activists.

The ultimate expose on the radical nature of our 44th president: “The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and other Anti-American Extremists”

The idea that it might not be “fair” to ask the majority of law-abiding American taxpayers to foot the bill for the education and medical care of countless numbers of invaders never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

The idea that it might not be “fair” to ask the majority of law-abiding American taxpayers to accept in the name of tolerance graffiti-strewn streets, drug chaos and rising crime directly attributable to illegal-alien gangs never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

The idea that it might not be “fair” to ask the majority of law-abiding American taxpayers to be happy about surplus workers in their communities taking the jobs of Americans at less than the legal minimum wage never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

The idea that it might not be “fair” for Arizona to pay policemen to do a job that would be unnecessary if the federal government simply enforced its own laws never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

The idea that it might not be “fair” to actively displace 10 percent of a neighboring country’s population for no good reason other than to empower an exploitative political clique in this country never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

The idea that it might not be “fair” to Americans expecting their national government to protect them from internal and external threats to ignore 25 million people inside the country illegally and to welcome more every day never occurs to Obama and the boycotters.

Instead, Obama and the boycotters talk about a legal government action by the sovereign state of Arizona as an affront to human rights, as shades of Nazi Germany, yes, even as a danger to the Constitution.

Well, let me tell you about the Constitution.

Here’s what it says in Article IV, Section 4:

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”

Have Obama and the boycotters lived up to that promise?
