Politics as usual, or do we want change?
Are there two sets of rules for Republicans that are running for office in Arizona: ‘one set’ for those already holding an office, and ‘another set’ for those who currently don’t hold an office? Either way all Republican Candidates have to meet the same criteria as their opponents to be place on the primary ballot; incumbent or office holder or not. There just may be a ‘third set’ of rules for the GOP CLIMBERS, the ‘I want to be part of the insider club.’
Sitting U.S. House Representative Jeff Flake who is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by John Kyl, has been invited to speak at several LD meetings where I have heard that other candidates (non office holders) running for Kyl’s seat were told that they would have to wait until after the first of the year before they could expect to speak at a LD9 meeting. In fact that is the rule, only incumbents can speak. And after the first of the year when Republican challengers ARE ALLOWED TO SPEAK it’s almost always limited to 5 minutes where the incumbent typically gets 30.
A rule or not, could this be why voters are leaving the Republican Party in droves, perhaps this has something to do with the declining credibility of the Republican Party. Rules that exclude new comers to protect the good old-boys …… isn’t this why we are living this nightmare of Republicrats, the incumbent who is good or bad, is always given the advantage? It’s not what you stand for but who you stand with!
This fits well with saying that the GOP has “EARMARKED” Kyl’s seat for Flake, that Wil Cardon is nothing more than a strawman for Flake. Watch the FEC contribution reports to see who the GOP donors to Flake and Cardon in equal amounts are, but don’t expect to see it until the second quarter filing next July. Watch and see who Cardon and company donate to.
Back in June, Cardon gave Schweikert the max contribution for his primary and general election $2500/$2500. Look at the links in this paragraph and ask yourself: did Cardon gave the max because he agrees with and supports Schweikert’s record and position on issues, like The Patriot Act, or how he flip flop’s? Or is he just pandering under the guidance of CQ? Who is Constantin Querard, can you say Pearce/Cortez plant, and signs. And what’s this, CQ has been working with Cardon for months now, and Michael Leavitt, I got copies of emails that show the same thing. SAY CARDON STRAWMAN.
What’s as interesting as Republican’s, let alone so called Tea Party people giving New World Order Newt Gingrich a kitchen pass, is how can one be a GOP Legislative District Chair/President of a Tea Party, be married to a State Representative and not have any biases one way or the other? How can someone have Tea Party principals and share their values yet play the GOP game, or do I have that backyards…… does it make any difference?
A little bit ago robo-call Ludders of the Arizona 2012 Project Tea Party had Cardon set to speak until Steenwyk (Van the Radio Man) showed up – can’t let one U.S. Senate candidate speak and not the other. Cardon eyes, wide open bolted from the meeting, out the back door, Van meet him at the exit and had a little chat with him. So EXCLUSION just doesn’t happen at the GOP Legislative District meeting level, it happens at GOP Tea Party Groups as well. You want a good read on the subject CD 6 candidate Jeff Smith muzzled in LD 22.
Just November 13, I received an official GOP Legislative District email announcing two events for “conservative Republican Wil Cardon” CAMPAIGN KICK OFF for the US Senate. Both events were on Tuesday the 15th, one at the GOP Maricopa County Republican Committee’s office and the other at Cardon’s Phoenix Campaign headquarters.
You can go to the MCRC (Maricopa County Republican Committee) site and see Cardon events listed up. While you are there be sure to click on the menu button Calendar of Events and visit all the T.E.A. Party’s!
