Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Two of our representatives in the Swamp will often step out ahead of the crowd and do the right thing. Unlike the democrats, the GOP does not slap down such an effort. The Dems see it as "stepping out of line." The GOP will get testy if they disparage the GOP brand but, otherwise, will turn a blind eye to action that is usually outside the interest of the party. Such is the case with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ). So far as we can tell, he's the first to formally call out Biden from behind his desk but is willing to make a splash heard 'round the country.
So, what's the point? He's in the minority party and this will never see the light of day! Democrats can do just about any illegal or nearly illegal stunt without fear of retribution from an unknowing public.... or any other entity. By doing SOMETHING instead of hiding in his/her office, a lawmaker can at least get airtime to spotlight the misdeeds of the dems. Until the GOP buys some successful media, it's the best Republicans can hope for unless they re-take the House and keep the Senate.
WASHINGTON D.C. – On Wednesday, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar called for an investigation into Vice President Biden’s “potential corruption.” After reviewing the transcript of a phone conversation between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelenskyy, Gosar believes a full investigation by Congress and the Department of Justice is warranted.
On September 25, 2019 the President released a transcript of a phone call between the President and the President of Ukraine. According to Gosar, the transcript establishes that the government of Ukraine fired a prosecutor that was investigating Hunter Biden after Vice-President Biden threatened, in his official capacity as Vice President, to withhold official U.S. foreign aid to Ukraine, if and unless the government of Ukraine did not comply with his demands.
“I have reviewed the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelenskyy and concluded that the evidence of then Vice President Biden’s potential corruption warrants a full investigation by Congress and the Department of Justice,” said Gosar referring to the call that occurred in July 2019. It appears, based on former Vice President Biden’s admission captured on video, that he used his official office as Vice President to coerce a foreign nation to take action that would personally financially benefit the Vice President’s son. This is the definition of a corrupt practice.”

Rep. Gosar needs to add the Clintons, Pelolsi and her husband along with many others to this list and certain there's more than enough creditable evidence to file these charges and then have his scheduling secretary get him on OAN and Fox to start with along with more than enough radio shows across the country by callins to make a difference, this is one way to turn the boat around, of course then the GOP has to be ready for charges to be brought against several in the GOP who've also violated the Peoples' Trust and Oath of office all have taken.

It's about time the Republicans acquired some intestinal fortitude and brought efforts to bear against the communist other side of the aisle. They're typical role as doormat for the Dems is disheartening. The only time one hears from "Congress" is when they're groveling for money from their constituents during the election cycle run-up. Otherwise, it's just business as usual in feeding at the trough of K Street lobbyists and personal wealth accumulation.
This is why nothing changes, those in office don't serve us they serve the Party, Lobbyists, PACS, and of course themselves, this has been proven now for decades and still voters continue supporting the Incumbents because they must be right they have all the money they need to target special groups and yes this unfortunately includes many at the lower levels in the Precincts as they also vote for the Incumbents, so if you really want change the only way to get it is Vote them All Out, as this CANCER is on both sides of the Aisle.

You say this al the time Clair. We can only vote for those that run. If no winnable candidate runs we are screwed. I often vote for the lesser known candidate but only if too much is at stake if we lose in the senate. we are seeing daily the wages of letting the dems in control
The Party's control the office holders, so as long as that's the way people vote then nothing will change, but suppose vetting makes everyone feel good. The lesser of two evils hasn't worked and won't as proven by the votes the AZ Office holders took in our state to allow the homosexual preferences to be taught in schools recommended by AZ AG and signed by Ducey these peoples Morals are a joke but then as our founders stated it will take a Moral People to Maintain our republic and we're long past that, so maybe there really is very little if any hope, however do believe some moral people still run now only to get them elected is the problem even in the primary elections where the money is controlled by the EVIL.

You are like a broken record, clair. If there is no good candidate, you suggest we would just not vote. Yeah, I know you ran for several offices but apparently, you were not electable. We need good candidates who can win, not just good candidates. I suggest instead of saying the same thing over and over you do something to recruit better candidates and they find a way to get them elected. Words are cheap. Just sayin'
Not broken just don't change as realize without the $$$$$$$$$$$ no ones electable, the last run I got 30% with less than $500 and my opponent with his monies and even having clean election dollars added in with another candidate joining in and PACS etc. they spent over $120,000, so as I've said before and the numbers prove it, it's the MONEY as has been proven for decades now and, but then that would take more than mouth service as you said Words are Cheap, and as they say show me the MONEY, still believe we just may pull off a victory some time in the future.
God Bless You; Van
Yes, $$$$$ is a great equalizer but if a candidate is not already electable, money won't matter. Hillary is a great example of that, Romney too. PACs can help clean candidates so long as they are not colluding with them so which PACs supported you? What PACs supported your opponent and why didn't they support you instead if you are the better candidate? Yes, I know you were not for sale. Is that all it is about? If so we are doomed no matter what. And as to you running again, be careful not to get a wendy rogers reputation. Has money, an airplane and not winnable.
It was stated earlier that it takes Money, well it also takes the willingness to try or another way of saying it is, Faith Without Works is Dead, and believe JFK once said I'd rather try and fail than fail to try, however if one is judged only by the Act of trying and not succeeding then why even try in today's World.
I also realize I'm not the 1st person to fail a few times and as History proved the only ones that succeeded were those willing not to quit trying, and Romney is a Liberal GOP and Hillary even though she was able to win the Popular vote ran a poor campaign when she sat back believing certain states didn't matter, however I'm more influenced by those in the past who failed the 1st few times however long term succeeded. I've also learned over the yrs. not to listen much to people who've never had any real experience at trying, as I said earlier Faith without Works is Dead and Talk is Cheap and seems the bleachers are still full of talkers who have no limit to advice giving, however can't support it with any efforts, but certain some others who've never tried will agree with the advice and makes all feel as though they're contributing. Now why don't the PAC's or GOP support me, seems Randy Miller is finding out that when you won't sell your Soul as most do then no help from the Evil side of Politics, and Wendy has her own problems when it comes to running a campaign, although has spent enough to win but to me just up on issues or believable as well. Let me clear up Clean Elections, when someone who's getting 5's tells those who are giving it to them that they're running clean to keep from having to get funds from questionable sources and then mixes that money with others running with more than questionable records or ethics, I for one look at that as misleading the voting public, but then many don't see anything wrong when politicians mislead people as they say they've come to expect to be misled or lied to and this is just one more reason the country is in the shape it is and if we vote for them at the local level sooner or later they'll end up in DC where they do even more damage to our Republic or at least what's left of it.
Here's a link to Randy Miller's comments on his running and what those in office have said to him, know the feeling myself and sad to say nothing has changed since I 1st started, but hope springs enternal; https://www.randymillerforarizona.com/post/i-am-not-the-enemy?fbcli...

OK I'm gonna bite one more time. What JFK said was in the context of being capable of success. For instance, he didn't try to be an astronaut because his back would have kept him from success. Waste of time and he knew it. Don't "try" to jump the grand canyon on a motorcycle either. As to PACs there are good PACs out there that just want to help good candidates win. To lump them all into an evil context is poor judgement and fake news. PACs can and do help clean candidates so long as they are in no way tied to those candidates. Just follow the rules.
Van, I'm glad you have tried. I am one who does not judge a candidate on the past attempts. Takes a lot more info than that in my vetting process.
Hang in there!
Gosar is a keeper! The RINO's up my way know not to go after Gosar. If another good patriot, lover of liberty and the U.S. Constitution I believe that Gosar would term himself. We are fortunate to have him.
BTW Van, Daniel McCarthy was well received this evening at the Prescott Courthouse Sq.
