 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!

From Independent Women's Voices (you guys can read and act, too)

“It has to come down to this: The race must be about the full, 100 percent repeal of ObamaCare."

-- Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in Politico, 12/30/11

Tomorrow, Iowa residents will take part in the state's first-in-the-nation caucuses, thus beginning the process of selecting the next President of the United States, as well as the members of the 113th Congress.

It will come as no surprise to you that we agree 100 percent with Congressman Steve King. ObamaCare must be the central issue of this election season — because ObamaCare hurts jobs and the economy, erodes our personal liberty, and not only impedes quality medical care but is a bold, bright marker for what a candidate sees as the proper role of government and what kind of future this country will have.

Never popular to begin with, ObamaCare continues to sink in the polls. The latest AP/GfK poll has only 29% in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The latest Rasmussen poll has more than half the country — 53% — opposed to this noxious, liberty-robbing legislation.

It couldn't be more clear: Candidates that reflect the public's disgust with and complete rejection of ObamaCare will have no trouble finding a constituency.

The Repeal Pledge — our project to hold politicians accountable for their promises to voters — will play a key role helping voters to know who is serious about full and complete repeal of ObamaCare, and who is just paying lip service, trying to ride the wave of public dissatisfaction to an electoral victory.

Heading in to tomorrow's Iowa Caucuses, two candidates for President have signed The Repeal Pledge: Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.  They have our thanks.

But we need all the candidates to sign so we know for sure where they stand.

Below are links to contact the campaigns of the candidates who have yet to sign the Presidential version of The Repeal Pledge. Can you take a few minutes today to send them an email or post on their Facebook page or Tweet at them to go to and sign the pledge today?

Michele BachmannEmail - Facebook - Twitter

Jon HuntsmanEmail - Facebook - Twitter

Ron PaulEmail - Facebook - Twitter

Rick PerryEmail - Facebook - Twitter

Mitt RomneyEmail - Facebook - Twitter

The road to electing a President who will sign the repeal of ObamaCare officially begins tomorrow in Iowa. Help us make REPEAL a REALITY in 2012.

This was fascinating.  I hope we can remember that regardless...the goal is to defeat BO AND get a conservative congress....we need both!

Morning Bell: Voter ID Prevents Election Fraud

Last night’s nail-biter in Iowa marked the beginning of election year 2012. And with Americans heading to the polls — next in New Hampshire, then South Carolina and beyond — they will hope to rely on the integrity of the election system to ensure that every legitimate vote counts and that fraud is not the deciding factor on the local, state or national level.

Unfortunately, despite all the technological advances in our modern democracy, voter fraud still occurs, and yet there is still resistance to one very simple tool that could help eradicate it — voter ID. Some, like The New York Times, say that voting fraud is a myth, that “there is almost no voting fraud in America.” But as Heritage senior legal fellow Hans von Spakovsky explains, voter fraud is all too common in America today:

The fraud denialists also must have missed the recent news coverage of the double voters in North Carolina and the fraudster in Tunica County, Miss. — a member of the NAACP’s local executive committee — who was sentenced in April to five years in prison for voting in the names of ten voters, including four who were deceased.

And the story of the former deputy chief of staff for Washington mayor Vincent Gray, who was forced to resign after news broke that she had voted illegally in the District of Columbia even though she was a Maryland resident. Perhaps they would like a copy of an order from a federal immigration court in Florida on a Cuban immigrant who came to the U.S. in April 2004 and promptly registered and voted in the November election.

Even former liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens agrees. Stevens wrote in a 6-3 majority opinion upholding an Indiana voter ID law: “That flagrant examples of [voter] fraud…have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists…demonstrate[s] that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

Given the incidence of voter fraud — and the simplicity of requiring voters to present a valid ID in order to be able to vote — it’s not surprising that 70 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that voters “should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to cast their ballot,” according to a recent Rasmussen poll. Meanwhile, only 22 percent of Americans are opposed to the requirement.

Despite the fraud — and the support for voter ID measures — Attorney General Eric Holder intends to examine new state voter ID laws for potential racial bias. Von Spakovsky writes that the allegations of bias are baseless, and there is evidence to prove it. In Georgia, which enacted a photo ID law before the 2008 election, the number of African American voters increased after the new law went into effect. “According to Census Bureau surveys,” von Spakovsky writes, “65 percent of the black voting-age population voted in the 2008 election, compared with only 54.4 percent in 2004, an increase of more than ten percentage points.”

On top of all that, the number of people who don’t already have a photo ID is incredibly small. An American University survey in Maryland, Indiana, and Mississippi found that less than one-half of 1 percent of registered voters lacked a government-issued ID, and a 2006 survey of more than 36,000 voters found that only “23 people in the entire sample–less than one-tenth of one percent of reported voters” were unable to vote because of an ID requirement. What about those who don’t have photo IDs? Von Spakovsky notes that “every state that has passed a voter ID law has also ensured that the very small percentage of individuals who do not have a photo ID can easily obtain one for free if they cannot afford one.”

The American people value the integrity of their elections, and they overwhelmingly support voter ID requirements to make sure that Election Day is as fair, honest, and legal as possible. Still, though, there is resistance and predictions of massive  disenfranchisement if voter ID laws continue to be implemented. The  evidence, however, proves otherwise.

Quick Hits:

Imagine virtually no one doesn't have voter id...unless of course U R illegal or dead.

Good review of Newt in Newt's own words.  Don't like his immigration policy...but like a lot of what he says.  Bright, articulate.

Gosar will switch districts, run in CD4

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar confirmed rumors that have been swirling around in political circles for months, announcing on Saturday that he will move to Prescott and seek reelection in Arizona’s new 4th Congressional District.

Gosar announced this morning that he’s moving from Flagstaff to CD4, which takes him out of the competitive but Democratic-leaning 1st Congressional District. Prescott is part of his current district, but not the new CD1 he was drawn into during the redistricting process.

His announcement was first reported by

The long-anticipated move gets Gosar out of a competitive district where he was likely to face a tough general election matchup against former Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, a one-term Democrat he unseated in 2010.

The move puts Gosar in a district where Republicans have an overwhelming advantage. But in CD4, he’ll likely face a three-way GOP primary fight against Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who formally announced his campaign on Wednesday, and Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, who formed an exploratory committee in December. Gould is expected to formally enter the race next week, after the legislative session begins.

In CD1, Gosar faced a likely rematch with Kirkpatrick, whom he unseated in the 2010 election, Kirkpatrick has already raised about $450,000. National Democrats are targeting the race as a possible pickup.

In his last campaign finance report in October, Gosar reported raising a total of about $460,000.

The Arizona Independent Redistricting Commissioner drew CD1 to be competitive. Democrats hold a 9-point voter registration edge in the district, but that advantage shrinks to 4 percent under several voter performance equations. In the old CD1, Democrats had a slight voter registration edge.

Rumors that Gosar would move started circulating almost as soon as the IRC approved its congressional draft map in late October. Gosar was also part of a contingent of Republican Arizona congressmen who urged Gov. Jan Brewer to remove the commission’s chairwoman so the remapping process could be restarted.

CD4, also known as the “river district,” runs the length of the Colorado River from northern Yuma to the Utah state line, stretches through Yavapai County and wraps around the fringes of the Phoenix metro area into northern Pinal County. With an 18-point voter registration advantage and 27-point voter performance advantage, CD4 is one of the most reliably Republican districts on Arizona’s new congressional map.

Other Republicans have been eying the seat while awaiting word of Gosar’s plans. Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce, who lives in the East Valley but owns a home in Forest Lakes in southern Coconino County, has said he may run in CD1 if Gosar moves to CD4, and former Rep. Bill Konopnicki, R-Safford, is also considering a run.

Gosar, a Flagstaff dentist, had a rough first year in office. He was plagued by staffing problems and several employees have resigned. He has refused to fire chief of staff Rob Robinson and legislative director Tom Van Flein, against the wishes of the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to reports.

So we have Gosar and Babeu in District 4.  Well now we know the District 1 will be a democrat.

Comment by jfreden on January 7, 2012 at 5:26pm

Babeu needs to stay as SHERIFF in PINAL county.  The Sheriff's have more power and he is liked and does a good job. 

Well we need ideas for the governor, since apparently she hasn't thought of any good ones and neither have her advisors!  She is protecting her 'legacy' which is going to be - you turned AZ from RED to BLUE!

I think there are at least 5 or 6 candidates for gov standing in the wings!!  whether we think they are good remains to be seen.

On Arizona from Anita:

Did you see this recent Capitol Times article?  The new Senate President Steve Pierce (moderate) has given Jerry Lewis (Randy Parraz’s favorite new senator…for the time being) four committee assignments, including the powerful Appropriations Committee! 


Also take note that Senator Steve Smith, a real man (strong Conservative), was replaced by the “nuanced” Jerry Lewis. 


I have written multiple articles about Obama’s plant, Randy Parraz, and his goal to turn AZ into a Blue State.  We all know that the State Legislature is lobbied hard constantly, and the Pro Amnesty/Open Borders crowd are masters of persuasion. 


Don’t forget that both the Arizona Republic and the Tribune can be counted on to provide continuous free propaganda to the Open Borders/Hate Arpaio crowd.  Anything that destroys Arizona’s right to protect its own borders is ok with them.


Conservatives better get busy and register new Conservative voters and FIGHT BACK!  Or come November, you won’t know what hit you.
