The fallacy of "It is a Federal function"

Clearly our public school system is failing in it's task of educating our children on how the united states government is supposed to work, because I keep hearing from the pro-illegal alien crowd that immigration enforcement is a federal function and the states/cities have no right to interfere.

I'm here to tell anyone who believes that malarkey that you are full of shit!

The Federal Government only has the duties assigned to it by the states, similarly the states only have the responsibilities assigned to them by the people. The Constitution lays out which branch of government is to have what duties, but like any employer/employee relationship the employer is responsible for the actions of the employee. and if the employee does not perform his or her assigned duty, it is up to the boss to see to it that it gets done, even if he has to do it himself. In this case the people are the bosses, the states the middle managers, and the federal government the low level employees. That is not the way people usually think of the relationship however but that is in fact the case. The Feds work for the states, and the states work for us.
And just like the boss of a lazy employee, when the employee fails to mop the men's room floor, the supervisor either has to find someone who will do it, or do it himself. It is also up to the supervisor to get rid of that worthless employee. And we have a LOT of worthless employees that need to be fired. That generally indicates that we have been lax in our duties as supervisors. And just like a business, when the boss does not tend to his business, the business fails due to lack of leadership. The United States of America is failing. We have allowed the shiftless employees that can't be bothered to do what they are told to continue to run the business into the ground. The responsibility is however squarely on our shoulders because we have allowed the situation to get this bad.

The feds work for us, we don't work for the feds. They (and WE) need to be reminded of that fact from time to time. It is time to remind them (and US) again.

I'm currently reading "The 5000 Year Leap" - highly recommended. Our country is going in the wrong direction.
