THE HAIRCUT ... 

 Blessed are those that can give without remembering, And take without forgetting.

 One day a florist went to a barber named Norma for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open her shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for her at the door.

 Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for her at the door.

 Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

 And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.  BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!  AND WHY WE NEED TO SPREAD THE WORD THAT WE NEED TO INFORM VOTERS TO VOTE SMART!

Comment by Randy Miller on Sunday

I have to post this in 2 parts.  I'm too wordy I guess.

2.  Obama Care, specifically "What will you do to repeal Obama Care?"  Poor question for a state representative but that's okay.  The answer was mixed, but basically void of any legal remedy to deny it's implementation in Arizona, even from a sitting State Representative.  Standard answer, we need the money from medi-care expansion or lose $1 billion in federal funds, more Ra Ra Ra, for "working with our federal representatives to repeal, not replace", and we "need to get back to a free market and HSA's". 

How about first of all, regardless once again to wrong decisions by activist judges, it should never have been permitted in Arizona due to the unconstitutionality of the law to begin with.  One, show me anywhere in the constitution, under Article 1 Section 8, or Section 10 restrictions on the states, where this is a function of the feds?  Two, it is in direct violation of the 16th amendment saying congress can tax on INCOME, all income sources. I am paraphrasing again, don't remember the exact wording.  The ruling was they can call it a tax under their authority to tax.  Well, they're "taxing" us on something we don't have, not on an income.  There is nothing about this that is legal, period.  Plus, maybe someone with more judicial rule knowledge and experience can correct me if I am wrong,  the court can only rule on what is before them.  The original argument put forth by Obama idiots was that it was a Penalty, a fine, not a tax because they themselves must have known what I just argued.  It was the court that offered the idea of taxing.  What was before them was a dispute on their fining citizens, which the court ruled was a violation of the commerce clause.

So my answer would have been the same as above in number 1.  No citizen in Arizona should be subjected to a "fine" that violates their constitutional protections.  Our legislative branch both at the state and federal level and the judicial branch all just took another one of our rights and freedoms away.  Shame on them and us for not saying hey, wait a minute here, this isn't going to happen!

My opponent, Rick Gray says "Randy is full of tough talk" as a way to say we can't do anything about it.  No Rick, I say follow the law!  I have confronted him many times over the years about these issues and he has literally told me, "What do you want me to do, waive the constitution in front of them?" 

YES, YES, YES!  That is exactly what you, and all legislators must do!  The constitution is our law!  How dare you be so flippant about our laws and then ask me and others to vote for you so you can write your own laws.

Think about this.  Everyone, please vote and vote smart so we stop getting Rick Grays that choose to strip us of our sovereignty by support and vote for things like the National Popular Vote.  He is completely ignorant of the constitution and violates our trust every time he pretends to take the oath.  Our oath mean something to all of us.  Lets hold them to it.

He won't debate me or be in a Q&A in a group if I am there.

Comment by Randy Miller on Sunday

I went to the candidate forum yesterday in Wickenberg and listened to the candidate answer questions.

It was a common theme to hear all of them give their answers void of constitutional reference or knowledge to get to the correct answer.  It isn't any wonder we are in the situation we are in today.

I'll give three examples so as not to have too long a entry.

1.  DACA and Border Security was a question.  The common answer given by all candidates for LD 13 was incorrect in my opinion.  The standard answer was always to place blame on the feds for not doing their job, claiming they need to get to immigration reform and they need to put the wall up.  Lots of Ra Ra Ra, "Build that wall".

Well, immigration reform has nothing to do with DACA as it is now, and the wall is going to be nice, but again nothing we as a state should wait for or count on.  I believe the answer is the State has every constitutional right and authority to defend our borders yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  Lets send the national guard to our borders with actual bullets in their magazines and the magazine inserted in their weapon ready to respond in self defense if needed and enforce illegal entry into our sovereign state!

As far as DACA goes, it is unconstitutional on all counts, including the Judicial overreach in "Ordering the president to enforce DACA".  The court can't even agree among themselves with an earlier court saying there was no authority for Obama to do it, and then this recent activist jurist saying President Trump has to.  My full explanation can be viewed here in the MCRC Briefs: http://archives.mcrcbriefs.org/2018_08_08_archive.html

So, regarding DACA, Arizona legislator's should, either by resolution or legislation, state any federal law not in accordance to the Constitution and in compliance to, and a result of something other than their delegated powers is not going to be implemented or followed in Arizona.  DACA included.  Any opposition to this is a violation of their oath of office and they should not serve, period.  Follow the law or leave.

One of many cases to support this is a 1994, U.S. vs. New York decision that stated the federal government MUST SHOW an authority for what they want to do.  So, show it or shut up.  That would be my answer.  Plus, they courts specifically state that the state legislators are not bound or obligated to follow federal policies.  I'm paraphrasing, but will send specifics is asked.

A Logo - Arizona Town CrierTaken from the MCRC briefs: “Trent-Franks Circulating Letter Calling For Cruz Or Rubio To Drop Out Of Race Congressman  Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican, sent the letter to fellow Republicans Wednesday evening. He's asking would-be signers to back his push to rally the establishment around either the Florida or Texas senator in an effort to defeat Donald Trump, the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination.”

Taken from the MCRC briefs:  “Mitch McConnell-Preparing-To-Sacrifice-Presidency-To-Save-Senate-Seats …While still hopeful that Marco Rubio might prevail, Mitch McConnell has begun preparing senators for the prospect of a Donald Trump nomination, assuring them that, if it threatened to harm them in the general election, they could run negative ads about Mr. Trump to create space between him and Republican senators seeking re-election. McConnell has raised the possibility of treating Trump’s loss as a given and describing a Republican Senate to voters as a necessary check on a President Hillary Clinton, according to senators at the lunches.

Whether or not one is a supporter of Donald Trump, Trump has so far capitalized on the anger with Washington.  Here are two good example of the disintegration of the Republican party!  If Trump is elected POTUS, he faces opposition in the house and senate, both.  Even though all the presidential candidates signed a pledge to support the winner of the election, the pledge didn’t apply to the house and senate!  So, the fat cats in D.C. are still up to their old tricks to retain their hold on power.  Where is the party?  It is up to the party to provided information on all candidates and let the voters decide then united we win, divided we fail.  With this approach looks like we can see a ‘Hillary’ president.  Where is the Party??

It can be seen in an article by Bill Hess, a retired reporter fir the SV Herald:  “It can be seen in the lack of trust for Congress, where party politics is disrupting the government, of, by and far the people.  Instead it has become government of, by and for the politicians.”And, “We don’t hold our elected officials responsible, as long as we are not being harmed”  Where is the party?

I just called the Washington office of Schweikert, to inform his that I would not give up MY CASH to him if he supported McCarthy ... then I got an email asking for support. do I have STUPID written on my forehead?

Comment by Jim Ehl on September 9, 2014 at 2:53pm
There you have it, voter turnout for the primary election.  27% for the state!  Not much interest in politics in Arizona, is there?  Why?
 
That could probably be debated until sundown and still not have a good answer.  No matter the answer, one of the causes is party leadership.  As ‘Tip” O’Neal once said, all politics is local. 
 
Seems to get voter activity there should be ‘party’ activity.  Now when our party sits in the corner, keeps quiet with no support to it’s members before the primary, and looks like all the voters hear is rhetoric by the candidates, what does one expect?  Oh, there has been correspondence from our party leader to the Democrat candidates for governor, but how many Republicans had planned to vote for the Democrat for governor?  Hmmm?  Did his correspondence help many Republican decide for whom to vote?  Or why?
 
Party activity.  How much has there been?  You know, in this county we elected 66 precinct committeemen this go around, which is down, from 78 (?) last time, for a quota of 274.  Now, that’s party activity, isn't it?  But then, why become a Precinct Committeeman?  Same, same.  Why go to vote?   How did your county do with the Precinct Committeemen election? 
 
We kinda ruined the “party” concept in Arizona when we voted to allow registered Independents to vote in the primary.  There is nothing against being an Independent, but how many ‘liberal’ Independents voted in the primary on the Republican ticket?    There is still the general election for the final vote. 
 
Well, what are our leaders planning to do for the general election?  Let’s focus on the information.  Will the information promote conservatism, or RINOs, or selected donor's or special interest or leadership interest or how bad is the other  party or what???  And, as long as the party bylaws allows for autocracy, only the ‘shadow knows.

For those who have asked what the voter turnout was for the Primary, the Secretary of State reports turnout as 27.16%.  Compared to past primary races in off years, that's higher than usual.
