Watching the GOP

We must be ever vigilant on how the GOP officials vote, on how they talk, on what they do and who they support!  And that is all GOP lawmakers across the board!  We already know what the Democrats will do!!

Please post your comments and verifiable information about anything you learn about our lawmakers.  Please include a source so people can do further research.

The Republican Party Platform, 2016

The Conservative side of the ledger needs to aggressively address voter fraud, instill fiscal responsibility and run electable candidates with Constitutional principles.

This page is for informing about what Republicans are doing to advance those principles.

It's time to cut loose such pseudo Conservatives as Karl Rove, Dick Morris and others who are Establishment Republicans more interested in their own power and less interested in America as a Constitutional country and against tea party grassroots values.

Every day, you get calls from dozens on "conservative" organizations wanting your money.  This is the time to be very careful who you donate to.

Do Not Donate to American Crossroads.  Do Not Donate to Mitch McConnel.  Do Not Donate to the Republican National Committee/National Republican Party/Republican National Congressional Committee or Senate Conservative Fund.

Go to Open Secrets to check out any PAC that wants your money BEFORE you donate.

Further Food For Thought: “All Republicans should ask Republican candidates their position on the Republican Party Platform. If you get a ‘deer in the headlights’ stare, you might understand how we can sometimes be so confused by their positions on issues,” quipped LD19 PC Joe Hobbs. “We are trying hard to pay attention to their core values in the debates and there are a number of candidates who seem to be ‘Totally Unaware’ of Republican values. Some of the candidates seem to have dropped out of the sky with big bags of money and have declared themselves Republicans without understanding hardly anything that we can support. Hollow campaign promises will not fool us again. You are RINOs and you are not welcome here. Our Republican Party Platform is the only true definition of what a Republican really is. It was written by grass roots Republican activists from all 50 states PLUS Presidential nominee, Donald Trump. It defines us. It is our benchmark. It defines our DNA. I absolutely will not support any Republican candidate who does not understand and support the Republican Party Platform – all of it! See 2016 GOP Platform

To Rose Sperry's post, the difference between the factions in the Republican party is clearly shown in the elephants shown above this column on this page.  Take a look and you will agree.  Thx AFA for your response to Rose. Spot on.

Comment by Arizona Freedom Alliance on December 18, 2017 at 9:31am

Rose: Although AFA does not speak for AZRA, the plain truth is that all Republicans are not alike.  We see in the news everyday that the establishment republicans are against our own Republican President. But they voted for almost all Obama policies that have damaged the American dream. Are we to support those people?  Is AZRA expected to support republicans who defy the party platform and the United States Constitution, vote with the democrats as Flake and McCain do routinely? Become complicit with the likes of AZGOP Chairman Graham and Lines who make Lincoln Republicans unwelcome at party HQ and defy their own bylaws routinely?  Is that the way to keep the Republic or even the Republican party?  AZRA's national motto is "The Republican Wing of the Republican Party."  That means AZRA is lined up with the party of Lincoln, not the party of McConnell and McCain who are known to spend more money and energy fighting the Freedom Caucus type Republicans than fighting the democrats.  That is what has led to the Uniparty, the intentional merging of democrats and establishment republicans whose goal is globalism.  Most Republicans are in favor of borders while globalism is for no borders anywhere.

And yes, the capital R is applied only to the Lincoln Republicans, the small r is applied to the outliers in the party.

If we can get an official response from AZRA on this, we will post it here.

Thank you for the "vetting" suggestion which brings up another issue. The folks in my area that aren't members of AZRA are hitting me hard about AZRA's policy regarding the vetting of persons before they are permitted to join the organization. Their thing is that we're all Republicans, so why the vetting? What I say to some is that we should vet more carefully. Will someone from Azra please jump in and advise. 

Comment by Bruce M Piepho on December 18, 2017 at 8:00am

Rose - the only time we do not endorse any primary is from the level of a county committee or a legislative district and certainly primary neutrality should be the example at the GOP  state party level.

However, as a PC I represent the voters not the GOP higher up organizations and there is no restriction on my supporting any republican candidate in a primary or general election.  If I go door to door in support for GOP candidate Y and oppose GOP candidate X - the only challenge for my neutrality is from my GOP voters - period.  If my county chair or other officer tells me to be neutral in the primary - I inform him/her that is council only to come from my constituents.

Comment by Arizona Freedom Alliance on December 17, 2017 at 10:29pm

Rose: A very smart man said it best:

Someone in your county committee has it backwards which is why the Republican party is so messed up.  As republicans - or even democrats - it's our job as citizen voters to vet every candidate and vote accordingly.  If everyone was as committed as you, we would not have a swamp to drain!

Great new look to this home page for the GOP.  Check it out. Very clever.

Comment by Myrna Lieberman on October 25, 2017 at 4:55pm
Jasper and Pat : I agree with you. McCain and Flake have their own Establishment candidate in the bullpen
Bruce : The last thing I want is a McCain dynasty so a big NO to Megan McCain
Comment by Bruce M Piepho on October 25, 2017 at 2:43pm

Megan McCain for U.S. Senate.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.
