If you've been wondering why Eric Holder and the Department of Justice have been suing states like Arizona and Florida to keep them from requiring voters to produce a valid identification at the polls, wonder no more. The other shoe has dropped.
This comes as Obama's approval numbers are sinking and his popularity is diminishing by the day. Despite saying that this "wasn't a political decision," the results from his refusal to enforce immigration laws say otherwise.

Even some on the left have started to notice that this president has more in common with tinpot banana republic dictators than with any American President. From the Politico site: Obama's policy strategy: Ignore laws.
Rather than pushing new laws through a divided Congress to enact his agenda, Obama is relying on federal agencies to ignore, or at least not defend, laws that some of his important supporters — like Hispanic voters and the gay community — don’t like.
“If the president says we’re not going to enforce the law, there’s really nothing anyone can do about it,” University of Pennsylvania constitutional law professor Kermit Roosevelt said. “It’s clearly a political calculation.”
A White House official said the strategy is the result of a stalemate in Washington.
There is a "stalemate" in Washington for a very good reason. The 2010 midterm election was a message and a mandate that the country sent to this administration. In no uncertain terms, we said we wanted this leftward lurch to stop.
There are a few more things we the people want: we don't want our Constitution ignored, we want all of our laws enforced, and we damned sure don't want some power-hungry leftist's "one world government" agenda imposed upon us.
