Gov. Rick Scott grows a pair and sues the Obama administration:
“TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Rick Scott announced Monday that the state is suing the Obama administration over its refusal to share a Homeland Security database that Scott says Florida needs to adequately clear its voting rolls of any non-citizens who wrongly registered to vote.
“We want to have fair, honest elections in our state, and so we’ve been put in the position that we have to sue to get it,” he told Fox News in an interview just prior to the Department of State announcing it had filed the suit.
But in a letter that seemed certain to intensify the battle between the Scott administration and Washington, the U.S. Department of Justice demanded that Florida halt efforts to purge its voters rolls – telling the state to “immediately cease this unlawful conduct” – and said it was suing the state.
“It appears that the State of Florida is unwilling to conform its behavior to the requirements of federal law,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, adding that he had authorized “the initiation of an enforcement action against Florida in federal court.”
This is exactly how we will bring about our own liberation: through stirring up polarizing conflicts between the Deep South states and Washington, thereby forcing ordinary conservatives to choose sides, at the expense of the legitimacy of the federal government.
I don’t have much faith in lawsuits against the federal government in federal courts, which in the long term are destined to be captured by the opposition, but separate state action is a step toward real resistance.
Let us see the heel of federal tyranny whenever possible. At some point, White people will tire of being stomped on.
