Only candidates of the National TEA PARTY, moderate Conservatism will enforce immigration laws and follow the dictates of the Rule of Law, the Federal Registry and the US Constitution. We need National TEA PARTY candidates who will abide by the oath of allegiance, our sovereignty to respect the Rule of Law and the vision of our founders, the US Constitution. Rough your politicians up—verbally and introduce them to a pink slip, if they don’t follow the will of the people. Check this site that has the phone Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at: http://www.contactingthecongress/ to demand an end to illegal immigration and the dismantling of our laws, sovereignty and military, which is protection against our enemies. This is the number for the central switchboard for Congress to address your grievances at 800-224-3121.

So I insist that the Tucson Sentinel from here on out refer to me as a “Sovereignty Activist”.

I got some unanswered questions here…

-First, what’s the problem? From what I’ve read, it appears as if the officer who conducted the traffic stop followed the law to the letter. What exactly did TPD do wrong here? What is there to protest?

-Second, how did the crowd know what was going on and who was involved? I have the same unanswered question with similar “protests”. I’ve been pulled over many, many times in my life…most of those times in one of Tucson’s many ghettos. No one ever came up to me to check on me and ask the circumstances of the traffic stops. So, how do these things get started?

-Third, why in the world are there no arrests for obstruction of justice? Seriously, I need an answer for this one. I have had a few friends in the cop business. All of them told me that interfering with a traffic stop is one of the stupidest things you can do, as cops see this as their most dangerous duty (the unknown) and are already somewhat on edge, anyway. Also, once I approached a traffic stop, as I knew the person getting arrested and I wanted to seize the opportunity to laugh at them. I just barely escaped an obstruction charge that night, and all I was doing is pointing and laughing. I didn’t put myself under anyone’s car or anything like that. What the hell is going on here?

People crawl under a border patrol car and obstruct an arrest of an illegal law breaking border crosser and are released after arrest with no consequence.???? Well, the lunatics are running the Asylum… Enforce our laws. If I tried that I’d be sitting in jail and probably tased. Special rights for Hispanics???? CLOSE THE BORDER….....

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
