Arizona used to be a state that defended private property rights. But in a single bill, SB1070, we have thrown out private property in favor of community property. We have officially established the principle that the state can tell us who can and can't be on our private property.
A. IN ADDITION TO ANY VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW, A PERSON IS GUILTY OF TRESPASSING IF THE PERSON IS BOTH:
1. PRESENT ON ANY PUBLIC OR PRIVATE LAND IN THIS STATE.
2. IN VIOLATION OF 8 UNITED STATES CODE SECTION 1304(e) OR 1306(a).
Trespassing used to mean presence on property without the owner's permission. Now the owner's permission is irrelevant, and trespassing is redefined as being present on private property without the government's permission. The state takes this new definition so seriously that no parole may be given for people who violate the law.
Conservatives gave up on the sanctity of contracts in this context years ago, making it illegal to hire the person of one's choice for a job if that person does not have the proper licenses and paperwork from the government.
Remember, Conservatives traditionally are not anti-authoritarians anti-big-government, they are just in favor of use and expansion of government authority in other contexts than those favored by Liberals.
