What is the Meaning of an Oath?

What is the Meaning of an Oath?

All elected officials take an oath of office.  In every instance that I know of the Oath speaks to the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the united States, and the commitment of the office holder to “protect and defend the Constitution of the united States, and of this state against all enemies foreign and domestic.”  I doubt that any of my peers take the oath lightly, but I question if some understand what it says.

This oath does not have an expiration date, nor does it …

HB 2173 and “Legal Tender”

HB 2173 and “Legal Tender”

HB 2173 has passed from the Arizona House of Representatives and to the Senate and quickly made its way through the Banking and Rules Committees. I’ve been asked by several constituents to explain why we need this piece of legislation, and what does it mean.

I may seem odd to hear a REALTOR say there is no such thing as “appreciation”, but think about it this way. If you bought a home in 1985 for $150,000 and sold it in 2015 for $300,000 did it really …

The Importance of Co-Equal Sovereigns

The Importance of Co-Equal Sovereigns

Kurt Schlichter, writing for TownHall.com, has done a great service to our nation.  He summarized what the alternative to the “Rule of Law” is.  History has proven over and over again the cycle of rise and fall.  The alternative?  It is the “Rule of Power”, and the rule of power is not supported with a common understanding that there is a Constitution that guides us and our affairs even to the level of day to day life and how we act ethically and fairly with …

A Watchman Warns: Are We on Our Way To Fascism?

A Watchman Warns: Are We on Our Way To Fascism?

First, let me explain why I am writing on the topic of “fascism”?  I am concerned that as the political process of our nation becomes corrupted by government and business working together against taxpayers our nation is in peril.  We hear about “special interests” and we see what they do, but we don’t often know who they are.

As if not bad enough, the people of our nation don’t know what fascism is, what it looks like or how it will affect them if “it” becomes …

National Review Issues Common Core Indictment

National Review Issues Common Core Indictment

As the States begin to consume the “poisoned apple” distributed around America, known as Common Core, Stanley Kurtz writes a scathing indictment of just one component of the big government play to seize States rights, in spite of the lack of enumerated power to do so.

Kurtz writes, “Americans are only now just waking up to a quiet but devastatingly effective effort to replace the teaching of traditional American history in our high schools with a new, centrally-controlled, and sharply left-leaning curriculum.”

Why Arizona Needs a Constitutional Tender Act

Why Arizona Needs a Constitutional Tender Act

It seems Governor Brewer lacked vision, while Representative Steve Smith showed a mind for advanced planning.  Brewer vetoed the Constitutional Tender Act that would have provided protection for Arizona residents who are capable of transacting business with gold and silver coins, rounds and other forms that are verifiable by content and weight.

Russia drop-kicks the US Dollar.

So, when the dollar goes lower because of mismanagement, the assault on oil and other lost opportunities by the Federal Reserve (the central bank private corporation with a government name) …

Business Productivity Principles, Meet Government

Business Productivity Principles, Meet Government

I’ve been told on several occasions that government can’t be run like a business.  “It’s “political”, I’m told and “you have to give in to this constituency or that special interest group to cultivate power, the power to get things done”.  If getting things done means even more collaboration for compromise then there is little wonder why we have a so many issues.

The wikipedia definition of Six Sigma is a set of techniques and tools for process improvement. It was developed by Motorola in 1986,[1][2] coinciding with theJapanese asset price …

My Vision of Governance and Government

My Vision of Governance and Government

As a candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives (LD-11), I am asked often, “what is your vision, your philosophy on government?”  While simple words come to mind like personal responsibility, social responsibility, fiscal responsibility, limited government free market economics come to mind, they seem more like bullet points, or sound bites.  Sound bites become labels quickly.

My highest level thought on government is this;

Government, should be no more than that which is absolutely necessary to carry out the mission of governance, and no less than …

Needed: Strong, Conservative Arizona Legislators

Needed: Strong, Conservative Arizona Legislators

State Representatives, Senators and Executive Officers are more relevant today than ever.  As the President of the United States continues to ignore the Constitution of the United States we will need strong legislators in Arizona to combat the man’s constant assault on our Republic, our Constitution and we the people.

Barak Obama has shown clearly he does not care about the consent of the governed.  He presses on, taking every opportunity to install his ideological, totalitarian dictatorship.  From the IRS working in concert with HHS, to …

Judge Jeanine Pirro – What Did Obama Know?

The people of Arizona, and the nation, have been lied to.  If the deception occurred in the private sector in say real estate, insurance or the banking industry, the charges would go beyond civil and enter into the criminal code.  It is time for the vigorous assertion of the 10th Amendment by the Arizona Legislature and Attorney General to exempt the people of Arizona from ObamaCare, who are now victims of what may well be the largest ongoing criminal enterprise ever devised.

As victims of the …
