Teach Children To Love America, Not Hate It

Teach Children To Love America, Not Hate It

We endure a steady stream of propaganda from local news papers all the way up to “main stream” media decrying how bad America has been in the past and how bad it is today.  Yet, we see a never ending stream of immigrants from nations all over the world coming to America for two reasons.  One is to have a better life than the nation they hail from; the other is to turn America into a nation similar to the waste land they come from.

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 2190, Repeal & Replace CC Update

On Wednesday, March 11 in open session of the 52nd Arizona Legislature, HB 2190, the bill to repeal and replace the Federally dictated program known generally as Common Core, but here in Arizona College and career ready standards, was passed by the House of Representatives on a vote of 34 to 24 with two members not voting.

At stake is the future of …

Can Values Voters Seize Control of Their Government?

Can Values Voters Seize Control of Their Government?

The article below is reprinted in it’s entirety from WND because it is spot on analysis, it points to the serious problem we, the value voters have at hand.

The establishment GOP will not listen to the grass roots, values voters.  Why?  Because the GOP establishment actually believes it was their work that won the election for conservative Republicans November 2014.  What the GOP is missing is the votes for principled representation were not for “go-along to get-along” power brokering.

In my humble opinion, after the Christmas …

“Arizona must not waste time and resources on suing the Federal government .”  That’s the claim Liberal Democrats Jo Holt and Holy Lyons have made on several occasions throughout the 2014 House of Representatives campaign.

We are left to believe the opposite of that statement must be true of their stand, that Arizona should not vigorously and regularly assert the rights of the State and of the People?  After all we hear (and I firmly believe) even from Democrats that the Constitution is the Law of the land. …

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 …

MAIG, What is the Real Agenda?

MAIG, What is the Real Agenda?

To begin to understand what Mayors Against Illegal Guns -MAIG- stands for and what Michael Bloomberg’s real agenda is, we first have to define the term “illegal guns”.  When I ask voters if they are against “illegal guns” without exception respond with an emphatic, “yes”.  But when I ask them to tell me what is an illegal gun, suddenly they are at a loss.

The conversation often turns to illegal acts committed by people who use guns.  But that is not an illegal gun, it is …

Position Commentary and Analysis is Back

Position Commentary and Analysis is Back

On October 9 I posted a notification that read,

“Voters deserve complete, accurate and unadulterated information about candidates for representative offices.  It is the critical component for decision making that voters must have access to in order to make well informed decisions; decisions that will affect their future and the future of their neighbors, friends and families.

Due to an escalated level of internet compromise activity, “hacking”, this blog will host only verified audio and video segments.  Written content is too easily manipulated and altered by individuals and/or organizations …
