LETTER FROM MCRC CHAIRMAN AJ LaFARO:
To all Arizona County and LD Republican Committee Chairmen -
In the [linked letter] below is the front page article of the July 15 Arizona Capitol Times. I want to express my appreciation to those courageous and principled County and LD Republican Committees who have already conducted votes of “censure” and/or “no confidence.”
Read Chairman LaFaro’s letter here.
LETTER IN SUPPORT OF AJ LaFARO:
The two issues critical to the survival of the Republican Party and the United States are defeat of both Obamacare and the illegal immigration amnesty bill. Governor Brewer might likely call it, “migrant rights.” In fact, Governor Brewer strongly supports Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and takes a weak position in opposing Amnesty thus confusing the Republican message in the public’s eye.
She has stated, “It is time we put differences aside and unite for the good of the party.” By her unprecedented use of the Democrat Party playbook to get her way, she has made it unequivocally clear that we precinct committeemen are not her allies but rather, she has treated us as her opponents.
Calling themselves Republicans, but voting with the Democrats on vital conservative issues, has been the hallmark of McCain Republicans for decades. The point here is that even when “Republicans” have the majority in the legislature, the moderates destroy this working majority. Invariably, after liberal Republicans betray Platform Republicans, the call is raised by these liberals as Brewer is doing now, that we must unite to elect Republicans.
I say, no more!! It is not the Republican PCs who are destroying Party unity. The PCs insist that our representatives follow our Platform, the Constitution, and the law. It is Brewer and her “turncoats” who have destroyed Republican unity by actually passing liberal, big government legislation that is contrary to our Platform and Constitution. These “turncoats” even disregarded their own Senate and House rules in bullying their Democrat bill through the legislature in a tyrannical manner.
Governor Brewer manifests concern that Republicans need to work together to focus on, in her own words, “the key issues that face our state, including the economy, quality education and public safety.” Ironically, she has attacked those very issues through her support of Medicaid expansion and by going “soft” on the illegal alien invasion. She has, in fact, made these conditions worse.
The Democrats are unified behind their liberal platform. Much as our colonial forefathers were undermined by British sympathizing “turncoats,” our Platform Republicans have been undermined by “Brewer’s Turncoats” who sympathize and vote with the Democrats.
If these “turncoats” are not defeated, we can expect the same results the next time conservative Republicans stand up to defend the Platform. Voting for the same representatives and expecting different results is insanity. (Witness the re-election of McCain and Flake and expecting them to actually stand by their election promises to secure the border.) Maricopa County Republican Chairman, AJ LaFaro, and the PCs obviously do not suffer from this insanity and they have my full support and encouragement.
Immediate past MCRC Chairman
