“I had three points I wanted to make, that not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job. But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.”  Clint Eastwood

Un Anti-Gun Agenda    Bypass Congress, Bring US To Its Knees

Congressional candidate Martha McSally's comment on the August jobs report and the overall state of the United States Economy: "It's time to pick principle over politics.  It's time to stop the divisive nature of attack first and then work for the people second.  And, right now in Washington, politics is taking priority over people and principle.  I intend to change that in Congress.  It is not acceptable to spend $821 billion of our tax dollars on a wasteful stimulus that has done nothing to stimulate job growth and has only served to stimulate the growth in our national debt and growth in our government.  It is not acceptable for Congress to continue to create and perpetuate uncertainty in our economic future, which disincentivizes businesses from hiring and consumers from spending.  We need a new direction.  That direction is by unleashing the power of the American entrepreneur through lowering burdensome regulations on small businesses making it easier for our neighbors and friends to open or expand their businesses.  And we need to practice a little self restraint in government - we need to stop the borrowing, spending and waste coming out of Washington.  Only then will we see job growth and only then will the workers of America get back to work.  And I promise the people of Southern Arizona, that I will not stop until we make meaningful reforms to get you working and growing again."
