Lazy AZ voters willingly vote away their right to vote

 Coconino County: Voting is such a wearying process it deserves to be ditched

In the wake of Arizona’s leftist unionist teachers, led by a 24-year- old, self-avowed socialist veering the November elections into the Democrat column, it was easy to miss this strange election phenomenon.  First, a bit of background:

In 1974 Arizona voters approved a slickly packaged, State Bar contrivance, Constitutional Amendment known as Merit Selection of Judges. Its purpose was to replace election of judges that had served the people well, with a controlled process while letting the voters think they were participating in something far superior, since it carried the key words “non-partisan,” as cover.  The non-partisan aspect is a farce, since the judicial applicants each must designate a political party on their applications, the commissioners are all selected by virtue of their party affiliations by obviously partisan Boards of Supervisors  (on the trial court level) and the governor (appellate level courts). Ultimately the partisan governor makes the final judicial selections from among partisan applicants. When judicial vacancies occur, the 16-member commissions, selected to represent political parties, and each chaired by a voting Supreme Court justice engage in a vetting and interview process.

A 250,000 population component covered the Superior Courts, which originally included just Maricopa and Pima counties. The thirteen remaining counties didn’t reach that population threshold, so they continued to elect their judges, keeping the judiciary closer to the people they serve.  Then wha’dya know?  Suddenly Pinal county hit the magic mark, and the vote was removed from its citizens.  Next to fall into the trap will be Yavapai, Yuma and Mohave Counties.

Coconino County, the home of liberal NAU university town, Flagstaff, is number 7 on the population density list, but its residents couldn’t wait to have their votes confiscated from them by virtue of this imposed constitutional amendment overreach. Proposition 416, was sold by the Coconino County Board of Supervisors — who would now have a direct hand in the process — as representing “transparency.”

It received little notice, but in the recent election, the voters in Coconino County actually voted to give up their right to vote. Our Founders must be reeling in their graves.

Remember the words of Benjamin Franklin when he was stopped by woman at the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787:

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

  “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it.”

    This is what happens when our youth are incarcerated in public so-called “schools” led by Democrat “red for ed” union-thug SCUM whose brand of so-called “education” serves to foster their ongoing ignorance. If they grow up unable to intelligently comprehend what they read on ballots how can they be expected to vote intelligently?

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      The whole point is that they don’t vote intelligently. Socialist Bernie Sanders claimed the youth vote. The educrat establishment is intentionally creating a country filled with dumbed down robotic non-thinkers, who will take as gospel the liberal drivel they have been spoon-fed throughout their school years. It only intensifies in high school and goes dramatically off the charts by the time they reach college. My parents were both Dems. They wouldn’t recognize their party today. My Dad would have registered as a Republican in a heartbeat.

    Americans are the most fortunate people on earth, gifted by our visionary founders with the unfettered right to vote. Yet I’ve met people as I’ve walked precincts on behalf of Republican candidates, who have no interest in voting. It’s too much trouble to keep that which people around the world wish they had.

    Coconino County us a hotbed of educrat leftwingers. They voted for their cherished bisexual. atheist icon Kyrsten Sinema by 62.0% over McSally who only received 34.9% of the vote.

    • Trevor says:

      Not to mention no Republican ever wins that county, Donald Trump, Both Bushes, Romney, Kyl, and Flake all lost that county when they ran their respective races.

      • State Committeeman says:

        Interesting. I was unaware of that political skew, but not surprised. Thanks for the information.

    Or, as President Ronald Reagan put it:
    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

    Important to Remember Ronald Reagan today, as Poppy is being praised and adored by the members of his crime organization.
    Lots of secrets.
    From JFK to Ronald Reagan—who was always around?


    Lots of evil floating around in DC today.


    RE: A Real HERO, (Ret.) General Flynn:

    NBC News: There appears, although the redacted documents do not make it completely clear, that there is a separate criminal investigation going on outside of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s purview for which Flynn has been providing significant assistance.

    (Will this guy lose his job at NBC for tweeting this truth?)

    Remember:General Flynn was head of DIA during the Obama years of our trouble.
    He knows everything. Thus, a monumental threat to them.

    We can blame Dewey for having co-opted the educations system once the gubmint got to control education the brain washing began. It is in the pre schools even, it is in the mindless cartoons that our 3-5 yo children watch on their own tablets, yes my little youngsters parents let them watch garbage and play mindless or violent games non stop and see no problems with it. When I mention they should be out playing and reading I get the look.
    Sad world we are living in. I have so many in my prct that brag they don’t vote. All I can do to not smack em upside of their non thinking empty heads and it is getting harder to control that urge or to tell them how stupid they are.

    If you were happy with the election outcomes here in Arizona, thank the aptly named Red for Ed teachers. If your kids are conversant on recycling and global warming, but are unable to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the Preamble to the Constitution and don’t have even a nodding acquaintance with our nation’s Founders, thank a teacher. My classmates who went into the teaching profession, were not the brightest bulbs in the chandelier, and most were very upfront about the fact that the draw was getting the summers off and long holiday vacations.

    If you think your kids (or grandkids) are receiving the same type of education you did, think again. We are being deceived by a liberal train wreck. Wake up folks. Get your precious children out of government schools!
