Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
Arizona is a special state, unlike any other. We have four ???? - cool to cold in the beautiful White Mountains all year around, moderate in the middle of the state with occasional surprise weather patterns and warm to blazing in the low desert with water sports year round whether back yard pools to lake activities and a snow storm once in a few years. There is a surprise around every bend in the road and that is part of its love of state. Where else can you drive two hours or less and find a completely different climate and way of life. And we like it like that.
Unfortunately, our governor fails to understand the lure of new residents to this state. He works as hard as possible to turn us into California, Oregon or Washington state politically and socially. It's no wonder that some Republican districts are growing tired of his pseudo power - the power that comes from the McCain cabal that he knows will protect him. He's a total disgrace and will never be anything else. And at least one gutsy legislative district decided to come forward and let him and all of Arizona just what they think about the man who sits in the 9th floor office.
The following is taken from Republican Briefs:
In reality, though, what will censuring this governor actually accomplish? Will it cause him to change his mind on these aforementioned vetoes? I highly doubt it. It is a noble gesture, but symbolic, at best. He needs to be removed from office. If there is a recall process available, use it. Otherwise, do not re-elect him or elect him to any other office he may seek in the future. End of story.
Our country and our political system needs far more than symbolic gestures at this point.
Governor Ducey is termed out in 2022 after two 4 year stints. We knew about Ducey in 2014 when he came to speak to LD2 at the Cow Palace in Amado, AZ and lied about enacting Texas policies. He proceeded to ram through Prop 123 in a special election and place an internet tax on all online purchases eff Oct 1, 2019. I am still steamed about that internet tax everytime I make an online purchase! Women have to SHOP!
A Republican pushing a tax? Not good at all. Didn't turn out too well for Bush 41, did it?
There are many ways to "tax". How about voting in favor of 6,000-page "covid relief" bills, or "omnibus spending" bills? Lots of Republicans voted for those. How about "shutdowns" because some bureaucrat says so? Lots of Republicans by their actions took Trump out of office and handed us Biden. I do not understand why so many Republican voters can't seem to recognize what these people are doing, people like Ducey, throughout the party. They do not represent the voters. They are miles away from us, corrupt, compromised or otherwise opposed to us. Yet talk of doing something about it, taking those disgusted voters, anguished voters and forming our own organization and "OH NO!". Ridiculous how little vision is out there, how little faith in their ability to control their environment and do something to help themselves. Our forbears would have been embarrassed by such a lack of gumption. It's easier to gripe and wring hands I guess.
The GOP has NO intention of representing its voters the way we voters want to be represented. They have proven it beyond any doubt over thirty years. I'm talking about Washington, not the state legislatures. But the way Washington is taking over, the state legislatures may become irrelevant anyway.
A cencure is a message of no confidence and if Ducy has his eye on running against Sinema what he chose to do has conservatives angry. He might as well run as a D and try to primary her at least that would be the honest thing to do.
He practically is a Democrat already judging by Angie's comment regarding his internet sales tax.
Honesty and politics don't seem to mix well. Since this guy is a moderate and/or RINO, the national GOP will back him. So it will be a tough road ahead for conservatives.
I am left with hope that other LD's will opt to do the same.
We can at least let him know how we feel. This is exactly why the Patriot party is catching on.
What is the Patriot Party's platform? Just curious.
Frank, Check out if your LD has a contact for you to talk to,
Courage can be infectious, like other states weighing in on election audits. It takes a leader, like this person from LD11. Perhaps others will follow if WE back this guy up.
