  2. Re: A Challenge to Republican Candidates

    Looking through the Roundhouse archives, I found that then-State Senator Joe Carraro (R) was the one who sponsored the 300-400K driving-while-drowsy study year after year.

    And Janice Arnold-Jones was one of the ones sponsoring “emergency” bills to fund public schools, community centers and such five, ten years down the road.

    What most of the Republicans and Democrats always forget is the quote from Lord Acton, usually paraphrased as “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. All great men are bad men.”

    I cite as examples the previous postings by “Cyberwiz,” Daniel Metcalf and “justthefax” (to name a few) where they made excuses for Mitt Romney, Heather Wilson and George Bush after I pointed out how those elected officials had expanded the scope, reach and expense of government.

    Yep, given that cops are drawn from the body public.

    Still, if they’re going to enforce rules against the rest of us for this same sort of behavior, then it behooves them to lead by example and not do it themselves. Otherwise, they’re the occupying forces that Jefferson et al wrote about in the Declaration of Independence:

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
    For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    [SNIP (me)]

    He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

    Otherwise, they’re the occupying forces that the Founders were attempting to prevent getting a foothold here when they wrote the Third Amendment.

  5. Re: A Challenge to Republican Candidates

    I’m not upset per se with Janice. Nor do I have any specific gripe with Lujan-Grisham. Where the Congressional race is concerned, I’m leaning towards Janice at present. That could change if she gets stupid and pulls a trick out of the Wilson / Romney hat (stumping for something like Medicare Part D or a GOP version of Obamacare).

    Still, I’d like to know how Janice would answer the challenges I posed when I started this topic.

    As for Janice being a member of this site, I think Carraro is, as well. I guess they don’t check in as much as others do?

    By the way, I fully encourage anyone reading this (members of this site anyone else) to forward to any Republican candidates that you know of – and any Democrat, Green, Libertarian, etc., candidates, as well.

    I know that feeling. And so we farm our resumes out  . . .

  7. Re: A Challenge to Republican Candidates

    I won’t vote for Grisham, but if Janice starts enthusiastically stumping for Romney or Wilson, I probably won’t vote for her either. I’ll “vote the air” by not voting for anyone in that race.

    For what it’s worth, I haven’t called myself a “Conservative” since 1993.

    If those is supposed to be some kind of threat, all I can say is BRING IT ON.

    I will STILL show my face as “Tea Party,” though. Every time I can do so, I will.

    There most likely weren’t many Libertarians at the 2008 GOPNM convention, as they wouldn’t have been eligible to vote on whatever business that was taking place. Now there were probably some small-l libertarians amongst the Ron Paul group present.

    From what I’ve heard about that event in 2008, Allen Weh was all set to hand the GOPNM to John McCain, lock, stock and barrel. When some of the Ron Paul bunch objected, Weh gavelled them down, saying “It’s not Robert’s Rules that hold sway here, but the pleasure of the Chair.” One of those same Ron Paul people told me at the April 2010 GOP gubernatorial debate at UNM that one of the Weh people threatened to “kick his ass” over something written on the ground in chalk about Weh.

    So we’ve got people in the GOP behaving like SEIU thugs. Glad I left the GOP when I did.

    If you’re stumping for Wilson or Romney, you ARE “riding that Big R train” – own up to it and be proud about it.

    So you’re OK with the train being headed straight to Marxville and Keynestown, just so long as it’s got that Almighty Big R painted on the side?

    In five years, you’ll be defending ObamaCare after Romney makes it his own at the federal level, and you know it. He hasn’t even secured the GOP nomination yet, and already his transition team is talking about implementing the state-level “health-care exchanges.”

    Should Romney and Wilson win their races and proceed to make ObamaCare into RomneyCare Part II, we’ll see who’s calling whom “Conservative” afterwards.

    For what it’s worth, if Johnson (or any other LPNM candidate) was to suddenly declare support for anything resembling ObamaCare, what you’re seeing from me here toward Romney and Wilson is NOTHING compared to what that person would get from me.

  8. Re: A Challenge to Republican Candidates

    Hell, maybe Janice will point this out to Monty and the rest of the GOPNM . . .

    You know, if either Ron Paul or Gary Johnson was slated to be the GOP nominee for 2012, and Bill English or Greg Sowards had been nominated for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, I wouldn’t be typing so much here.
