·        Congressman Matt Salmon in the aftermath of today’s vile attacks on innocent Parisians. “My thoughts and prayers are with the citizens of France and the families of those innocents who lost their lives in today’s bloodshed.  We anxiously await news that those repulsive individuals who murdered and kidnapped innocent Parisians today are quickly brought to account for their crimes.

·       Former LD Chairman Jim Ehl: Under our system of government those individuals most interested in grass roots politics become elected Precinct Committeemen (PCs).  The county PCs elect their local leaders and state committeemen.  The state committeemen elect the state officers and are responsible for state party.  What is the purpose of a political party?

Wikipedia encyclopedia: “A political party is a political organization that typically seeks to influence, or entirely control, government policy, usually by nominating candidates with aligned political views and trying to seat them in political office.[1] Parties participate in electoral campaigns and educational outreach or protest actions. Parties often espouse an ideology or vision, expressed in a party program, bolstered by a written platform with specific goals, forming a coalition among disparate interests”

One could assume that the state party leaders would keep up with how the state and federal legislators are preforming, and would inform county leaders who would brief their PCs.  Legislative District Chairs must be included in this process.  Then there would be feedback from the PCs through the county leaders to the state leaders who could then brief the legislators as to the political climate with We The People. 

What do we have in Arizona?  Seemingly, an autocratic state party run by RINOs and self aggrandizement who show little interest in We The People. It is seemingly concerned with acting as a secondary campaign committee supporting candidates who call themselves Republicans; discounting the voting record of incumbents.  When has the state leadership ever met with just the county chairs to find out the political climate in the state?  Looks like PCs are ignored except enjoined to be 'just worker bees'!

Looks like whatever the elected elite thinks will get the most votes is approved and the party says nothing.  Why have a political party??  Look where we are now!

Candidate Corner

Please comply with the 300 word limit policy

 

·       US Senate Candidate Alex Meluskey on tonight’s Paris Terrorist attacks: “Heaven is overflowing tonight with those entering before their time. Roberta’s and my thoughts

 are with all those who lost their lives and their families in this senseless series of cowardly terrorist attacks by Islamic Jihadists. We send our condolences to our oldest allies, the people of France. What we see unfolding today in Paris is a direct result of the reckless Obama foreign policy, which has been largely supported by John McCain. Both are the architects of the so called Arab Spring, which has directly led to the rise of the Islamic State and the spread of Islamic Jihad through Europe and into Latin America.

The lack of military action in the region and decisive intervention by our president and congress has led to the monster that we are watching be unleashed by the Islamic State. John McCain has an adolescent faith in the powers of democracy to inflict change on culture teeming of religious intolerance, superiority and violence for the last 14 centuries. I call on the president and congress to take immediate action to reverse the Obama-McCain appeasement to Islamic Jihad.”
