VAN’s CROSSOADS / GOP DC Double Standards!

NO MORE GOP POLITICAL KOOL AID!

I find it’s just more DC SWAMP Politics as usual with the Silence by the GOP pertaining to the Harassment of Women by Dems, but Loud & Clear when it comes to a GOP Candidate the GOP Elites Don’t Want or are able to Control!

Does anyone else who follows Politics in DC ever wonder how those who serve in DC at all levels get away with all the Double Talk when it comes to criticizing outsiders and defending or staying basically silent when it comes to those they serve with?

I know the recent noise they’ve all made when it comes to Judge Moore and the unsubstantiated accusations against him, but silent on Franken and I’m sure others they all know of when it comes to FACTS on the Harassment of Women at many levels by their so called colleagues.

I believe many in DC stay silent because they’re afraid of being exposed to some of the same behavior by others and don’t want to shake the Political Tree in DC or elsewhere. The best defense for this is just staying silent while all along knowing there’s more that can and should be exposed but they won’t.

We must demand an Investigation as well as them Revealing just who’s been accused and the Taxpayer Funds that were used to pay off the accuses so as to keep the Voting Public in the Dark when it comes to the Behavior of those who make the Laws we’re All Governed Under.

Investigate DC Office Holders Becoming Rich!

We’re facing a new time in American Politics or are we?  The accussations against Moore in Alabama are just the tip of the Ice Berg and may very well lead to his defeat or withdrawing from the race before Dec.  We all know the Clintons have had their poor history when it comes Bill sexually assaulting women & Hillary attacking them and defending Bill along with most the Liberal Press, Politicians and  Leftwing Organizations.

I’ve also noticed everyone seems to be very angry now about the sexual assault charges of the Clintons, Franken, Moore, and others recently named in Politics, Hollywood and very likely it will spread to other areas as well.

2nd Question: How Have DC Office Holders Gotten Rich?

I’ve noticed no one in any of these areas seems to be upset by the Politicians who for Decades now have been stuffing themselves with all the $$$$$$$$$$$$’s they’ve been enriching themselves with while in office.  No charges or investigations are being launched by any Committees that I can find and this Enrichment has come at the Expense to the American Citizens while they quietly became Millionaires.

The Office Holders in DC didn’t seem to have any real Talent for making Money before being Elected to Office, so I’m hoping some in the Public, Press and even Political Office will Demand an Investigation, into just how so many of the Office Holders in DC have become Millionaires while supposedly serving US.

Does the GOP Platform Matter?

We have reached a point in America where there’s very little Respect for what most of us Treasure such as; The Bible, US Constitution, Bill or Rights, Declaration of Independence, National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, Flag and now falling into that group is what most holding office in the GOP also pledge allegiance to but so often don’t.

With the GOP Platform, we the Republican Party
reaffirm the principles that unite us in a common purpose.

GOP Platform LInk.  

I’d like to know just how those who claim to be GOP Conservatives holding office vote against the very Party Platform that they pledge allegiance to and then ask us to vote for them over & over again?

I believe using the Platform to evaluate whether or not those asking for your Votes is a good way to decide whether to give it to them or not and compare their Votes with the Rhetoric they spout and see if it matches up such as let’s use the NPV ( National Popular Vote ) for one example if they voted 4 it then Vote Against Them.

Honest Elections and the Electoral College

We oppose the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and any other scheme to abolish or distort the procedures of the Electoral College. An unconstitutional effort to impose National Popular Vote would be a grave threat to our federal system and a guarantee of corruption, as every ballot box in every state would offer a chance to steal the presidency. We urge state legislatures that have voted for this proposal to rescind their approval.

 Honest Elections and the Right to Vote

Honest elections are the foundation of representative government. We pledge to protect the voting rights of every citizen, as well as their rights of conscience when they are harassed or denied a job because of their contributions to a candidate or a cause. We support state efforts to ensure ballot access for the elderly, the handicapped, military personnel, and all legitimate voters. We urge state and local officials to take all appropriate steps to allow voters to cast their ballots in a timely manner. We are concerned, however, that some voting procedures may be open to abuse. For this reason, we support legislation to require proof of citizenship when registering to vote and secure photo ID when voting. We strongly oppose litigation against states exercising their sovereign authority to enact such laws. In addition, to guarantee that everyone’s vote is counted, we urge that electronic voting systems have a voter-verified paper audit trail. We urge every state to join the Interstate Voter Registration Cross Check Program to keep voter rolls accurate and to prevent people from voting in more than one state in the same election. To guard against foreign involvement in our elections, we call for vigilance regarding online credit card contributions to candidates and campaigns.

The members of our Armed Forces must not be denied the basic rights that they are defending for others. Our troops, wherever stationed, must be allowed to vote in a timely manner. We call upon the entire military chain of command to ensure the voting rights of our citizen soldiers.

The Constitution gives Congress authority to conduct the decennial census “in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.” In order to preserve the principle of one person, one vote, we urge our elected representatives to ensure that citizenship, rather than mere residency, be made the basis for the apportionment of representatives among the states.

AZ Representatives Violated the GOP Platform with this VOTE!

AZ Representatives Recorded Votes On the National Popular Vote!

Will AZ GOP Citizens Vote 4 those that Voted to give the office of President to Clinton? The Democrats that voted 4 this knew it meant control of the White House for the next 20+ yrs.

The Question to ask the GOP House Members is Why did 20 of them Vote 4 It?  Just having a basic knowledge of why our Founders set up the Electoral System should have kept the Republicans from Voting 4 this, so if they didn’t know the history they should have asked someone who did and not listen to the Lobbyist who supported this Bill and voted against it, I don’t believe they can be trusted in the future not to follow Lobbyist Instructions once again if asked to do so.

This Vote betrayed the people who Voted 4 them. Remember Past Votes / History maybe repeated on this & other issues, don’t support or vote 4 them again.

This bill never made it to the AZ Senate Floor for a Vote as shelved by Sen. Biggs, believe this was done as would have passed the Senate as well and then to Governors desk to sign and who know s what Gov. Ducey would have done.

AZ Voters Winners / Losers!

Will AZ Citizens be the Winners in the 2018 Elections or Once Again experience Politics as Usual meaning Political Campaign Promises Made & Broken?

In the last few election cycles in AZ we’ve been made several Promises by those seeking our votes and then once in office they proceed as quickly as possible to Break Them.

I’d want to know if we’ll ever get Candidates who actually keep their Word to the Voters such as hasn’t been the case with Corp. Commission bar one, who all said they’d protect AZ from over reaching Pvt. Utility Companies and then given them the increases they’ve asked for and now we’re all waiting for the next shoe to drop with EPCOR seeking even more Consolidation of their Water Companies meaning they intend to Raise the Rates of those living in Sun City and Sun City West Communities if the New Consolidation they requested is approved by the Board and probably will be as has been the case so far.

I’ve also watched our legislators promise to End Common Core and then pass Legislation that entrenches it even more upon the children in the system whether Public or Charter Schools as any School that accepts Federal Funds is under the Regulations set forth by the Dept. of Ed, which by the way has no Constitutional Authority to even exist along with many others in the Federal Government.  AZ Citizens must pay closer attention after they Vote as most have no Idea just what some of these So Called Conservatives are really doing once Elected and thereby get a Free Pass just because they happen to belong to the GOP and therefore must be a Conservative, and there’s nothing further from the Truth than that Fantasy.

The GOP Elites like Brewer are lining up behind a Candidate to replace Sen. Flake and now we’re I believe expected to roll over and support him  Link to Video of  Jay Heiler : http://www.12news.com/mobile/video/news/politics/sunday-square-off/potential-ward-senate-foe-met-with-her-patron-bannon/75-2790967

I don’t believe most of those who are actually Activists will fall for this, but I do believe the General Uninformed and Misinformed Voters will follow like the GOP expects them to as has happened in  past elections.

I believe it’s up to every activist in AZ and elsewhere to expose the Records of those in office or running for office to the Voters however they can, so we can end the lunacy of believing what they say vs. how they perform.

I know most wouldn’t eat a bad restaurant more than once and would tell their friends not to as well. I believe this same responsibility extends even more so to those in office who we all know don’t tell the Truth when spouting their Conservatives with a Record that doesn’t back it up, so Expose them for the Liars they are and receive the Reward of Freedom for doing so.
