California Political Class Wants Boycott of Arizona — California Voters Want Arizona Type Immigration Law

Posted in Arizona immigration law, Government and Politics, illegal immigration by TeeJaw on Monday, May 31, 2010, 9: 00 AM

Just below in A Quote For Our Times I posted a quote from the 2002 book Government Failure: A Primer On Public Choice, which opines that Lincoln’s phrase from the last line of the Gettysburg Address [“that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”] would today need to be changed because we no longer have a government “of, by and for” the people. The government that rules our lives today is a government of the politicians, by the bureaucrats, and for the well-connected political activists.

This recent poll showing that California politicians are out of step with California voters is therefore poignant. A majority of voters in California would favor an immigration law like the one recently enacted by Arizona while nearly every city council in California is adopting resolutions to condemn it and trying to institute boycotts of Arizona.
