We have a rich, Republican history, here in Arizona. Mostly Republican the last 50 years, you can answer almost any political question with two questions: who benefits and when you follow the money, where does does it lead? Focusing on the current election in my own ‘district;’ most of the election action is local. City Council seats, State Representative and Senators; nothing that really has much of an impact on Arizona lives——except for a U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative seats. The Senate seat election is doing alright, with some ups and downs. But, there’s a Congressional, U.S. House of Representative seat thats been low on most people’s radar. Paul Gosar, a dentist from Flagstaff, has portrayed himself as a strong conservative, tight on government spending, protector of our people and our land since 2010. But up close, there’s more to see.
1. Racism. His voting record provides that he doesn’t vote regularly, and when you look at the votes that match his absences, he is absent—-regularly or votes against African American Bills that promote understanding, equality, and would improve race relations.
2. Against Women. During the Covid shutdown, people who could stayed home, with working parents, many single mother parents home bound. Schools being closed, the kids were also home. Eventually, people would return to work and children return to school. That brings us to child care. Pre-school age kids go to child care as do older children, after school. With everyone home, how would child care businesses survive? Well, part of the Covid Stimulus Package was a Bill that was to give child care businesses money to help the survive. Think about it; no child care, no going to work.Two parent homes would have income cut in half. Single mother homes? Disastrous. The quality of life for a single mother? Terrible; maybe even having to stay in a bad or violent relationship. Against women? Very likely. What about equal pay, equal rights for women? Paul Gosar either voted against or if it was a high profile vote, he would “go fishing” and ‘miss’ the vote. A pattern, you see.
3. Character. His siblings, brothers and sisters. All supported his opponent in 2018, and they now support his challenger, a very qualified, capable woman, named Delina DiSanto. Those same siblings even made a TV spot, also on this website, in which they talk about their brother, Paul. That he’s of bad character, incompetent, and doesn’t care about Arizonans. 4. Fiscal Conservative. He portrays himself as a watchdog against big goverment spending of taxpayer money. But, again, the truth. He spends more of the taxpayer’s money on travel than anyone in Congress.
It’s clear that he is not who he seems to be; he’s not a caring, concerned Congressman. He needs to be voted out and sent home. Maybe go back to being a dentist. But, vote him out of Congress.
