Most of you who are reading this know what “herding cats” is all about. In case you don’t, I’ll tell you. “Herding Cats” is a cliché used in the futile exercise of attempting to have a group of people act as a team in accomplishing a goal. Human nature as it is, oftentimes prohibits cooperation among people in order to achieve that goal.
With that said, we have a huge problem in the State of Arizona concerning elected officials who promise us one thing in order to get elected and then delivering something totally different once in office. Yes people, I’m talking about those dastardly “RINO’S” (Republicans In Name Only)!
To me, a clearly defined enemy is much easier to deal with and then defeat than a politician professing to be “on your side” and then under the cover of darkness, slip a well-honed blade deep into your back. Examples are rife with such deceivers across the nation, but I’ll focus upon some who are well recognized locally.
Just yesterday, I received an automated political message from Republican AZ State Senator Paul Boyer praising the virtues of Phoenix Mayoral Candidate Daniel Valenzuela and encouraging fellow Republicans to vote for him in an upcoming run-off election. Boyer called Valenzuela “his friend” in this message. First of all Valenzuela is a hard core leftist Democrat with an avowed “Open Borders” agenda. As a City Councilman, Valenzuela has a long history of voting for amnesty and special benefits for Illegal Aliens residing in our communities. Why would a Republican support such an individual who is an anathema to Republican and Conservative principles?
Recently, a bill crafted and introduced by Republican AZ State Senator Heather Carter (SB1217) passed muster in the AZ Senate with support from fellow RINO’S. SB1217 is legislation that if passed into law will grant special discounted rates to Illegal Aliens wishing to attend Arizona public colleges and universities. American citizens living out of state and wanting to attend an AZ college will continue to pay the much higher “out of State” tuitions, effectively subsidizing the Illegal Alien freeloaders!
Even more insidious is that this Bill is designed to circumvent an Amendment to the AZ State Constitution (Prop 300) which prohibits the use of public monies in giving special treatment to Illegal Aliens. Fellow RINO’S who voted along with Sen. Heather Carter (LD15) to navigate the passage of this Bill through the State Senate are: Sen. Kate Brophy McGee (LD28), Sen. Frank Pratt (LD8) and (once again) Sen. Paul Boyer (LD20). The support of this legislation should be the final unveiling of these phony Republicans and who they truly represent.
Principled Republican candidates need to “primary” these Democrats masquerading as Republicans in the next election. No real Republican would ever vote to favor the interests of Illegal Aliens over American citizens. These AZ State Senators are frauds and need to feel the wrath of Arizona voters! They are a “clear and present danger” to the dignity, traditions and values that Arizonans hold so dearly! Vote these people out of office!
