Clair Van Steenwyk / Candidate 4 Maricopa County Recorder; Comments on AZ’s GOP.
I understand it’s very easy to call people RINO’s as have I, however what we have are Party wings, not unlike the Democrats with Communists, Socialists, Liberals and some Moderates.
The GOP however chooses to call themselves Conservatives when in fact we have Liberals, Moderates, Conservatives and supporters of the U.S. Constitution, however the Liberals and Moderates become Career Politicians from Special Interests and of course Lobbyists.
This fact is due to a lack of any real actions taken by most of the GOP LD’s to aid in removing what are obvious to most, one example would be the Votes in the AZ House in 18 on the National Popular Vote as it passed by a Majority of Republicans voting for it and then were either Re Elected or Promoted to Higher Office, and of course it had a very effective Lobbyist working behind the scenes to Line Up their Votes,
hopefully everyone will take a look at this and realize if we don’t change our past history of voting for Career Politicians as well as Want to Be Career Politicians then it won’t be long before AZ is indeed Blue, it most certainly is already PURPLE.
I believe the PC’s have a Moral Responsibility to Guard Our God Granted Constitutional Rights and anytime they Vote for Legislation that Violates those Rights they give Up their Right to Hold Office, and PC’s must make a Best Effort to Remove them from office, if this isn’t done by the LD’s then whose going to do it?
God Bless You All; Clair Van Steenwyk
If anyone on this list Represents your District then Vote for their Opponent in the Primary, and yes a couple have said they’re sorry, well I’m certain that Benedict Arnold would have Loved to have gotten away with an apology to G. Washington for his Treason as well.
The bill was tabled in the Senate by then Sen. Biggs as he knew it would pass, because the following GOP Senators Sponsored the Bill: Prime Signor Shooter, Prime Sponsors; Barto and Dial, Co Sponsors Sylvia Allen, Judy Burgess and Kimberly Yee promted to AZ State Treasurer, plus otherGOP signers total support 20 Sponsors & Votes, enough to pass and override a Veto, which is why it was tabled by Sen. Biggs or the GOP would have passed it, seems Paid Lobbyists have more Loyalty than the US Constitution they took and Oath to or AZ Voters they’re suppose to Serve.
National Popular Vote Would Destroy Our Republic!
