Lea Marquez Peterson wants term limits for Arizona, America

If there’s one topic that should be universally embraced by everyone who isn’t a career politician, it’s term limits. Time and again we’ve seen the faults in our system in Washington DC that allows politicians to become embedded at the DC Country Club. These people invariably do anything they can to stay where they are or advance even if it means doing the wrong things for the country.

Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District is generally considered to be blue, but this midterm election it’s time to turn it red. Lea Marquez Peterseon has everything it takes to be a splendid member of the House of Representatives to be a voice for the people of Arizona. On the other side, Ann Kirkpatrick has only demonstrated a thirst for power that seems to drive her to move about the state in hopes of winning the next open election regardless of what it is.

At their debate, Peterson pointed this out.

“People are sick of career politicians like Ann [Kirkpatrick] who moved from Flagstaff to Phoenix, and then from Phoenix to Tucson to run for this third office in four years. She’s even violated her term limit pledge. She’s not one of us and she’s moved here to run in our community.”

America and Arizona need representatives who understand that their job is to be a voice of the people, not to jump from election to election in a quest to enrich their own lives. We need Lea Marquez Peterson to have a seat in the House of Representatives.

A reminder to GOP lawmakers from Justin Amash

A reminder to GOP lawmakers from Justin Amash

When Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) hadn’t been in Washington DC for very long when he said this amazing quote. At the time, many weren’t paying much attention. After all, many Republicans say similar things when they get to DC, but over time they become jaded, corrupted, or start to get used to being in the DC Country Club.

Amash is different. He has remained consistent with his message and views throughout his career. Now, it’s time for other Republicans to remember what they were sent to Washington DC to do in the first place. Defense of the Constitution is their top priority as it’s the best protection against a government that wants desperately to control every aspect of our lives. From healthcare to the internet to how we use our energy, government intervention has become so commonplace, it’s often hard to see the fabric of our nation behind all the layers of bureaucracy that has been placed on top of it.

“I follow a set of principles, I follow the Constitution. And that’s what I base my votes on. Limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty.”

If more Republicans followed the same principles and didn’t just use them in campaign speeches, we may actually be able to return liberties that have been taken and remove layers of government that have been formed unnecessarily.

What Allen West has been saying for years is extremely relevant today

Reading this quote, one might believe LTC Allen West said it today. It’s fitting as we’re seeing the exact effects he warned us about many years ago as a Congressman. Today, as a political commentator, he could repeat this quote over and over again and it would never get old.

Unfortunately, Washington DC decided not to confront the issue until now. The results: a porous southern border, activist judges who want to hamper enforcement of the law, sanctuary cities, and an entire political party that would rather shut down the government than do what it takes to improve border security.

“One of the critical issues that we have to confront is illegal immigration, because this is a multi-headed Hydra that affects our economy, our health care, our education systems, our national security, and also our local criminality.”

We should have headed his warnings a decade ago. Instead, we’re scrambling to put together something, anything that can defend our borders from the Hydra he referenced.

Art Laffer on why a trade deficit is a good thing

Conservative economist Art Laffer has been preaching the benefits of free trade and understanding what the numbers behind the economy really mean for most of his life. He’s taken many progressives to school on how to truly boost the economy and has always been a harsh opponent to the leftist’s favorite trade tool, the tariff.

Unfortunately, he’s having a harder time reaching so-called conservative who have abandoned basic economics in favor of Trumponomics. The concept of free trade has been replaced in the eyes of many conservatives and most Republicans with Trump’s idea of fair trade. The result: a trade war with China that is going nowhere fast and costing American businesses and consumers billions of dollars.

As Laffer correctly points out in this quote, running up a trade deficit is an unavoidable side effect of having a capital surplus. In other words, as American consumers spend more money, American businesses make more money. As American businesses make more money, they buy more products from foreign companies. This fact seems to have slipped over President Trump’s head.

“The trade deficit is the capital surplus and don’t ever think of having a capital surplus as being a bad thing for our country.”

Tariffs on China were considered a far-left progressive notion less than four years ago when Senators Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders proposed them. Now that President Trump has adopted their plans down to the letter, tariffs are suddenly the GOP way.

For a better explanation, please refer to this article by Benjamin Powell from 2006. Over a dozen years later, the truths still apply.

Trade Deficit Is Really A Capital Surplus

http://www.independent.org/news/article.asp?id=1832As long as our country remains a good place to invest and we have a low saving rate, foreigners are going to invest in the U.S. more on net than we invest overseas. That will generate a capital account surplus and the resulting trade deficit. This is a good thing.

But whether the payment is to a foreigner or to a fellow citizen, the customer’s purchase still indicates that he deems himself better off from the transaction.
