Exploring the future
where Ditat Deus
Finally, let's look at the political structure of Arizona, specifically the hierarchy. If you are a Precinct Committeeman you are the elected representative of your grassroots neighborhood of registered voters of your political party. You are expected to know about politics and be able to answer or find answers to questions posed to you by your constituents.
Your County Chairman is your source for answers and education. What the County Chairman doesn't know is acquired from the State GOP in Phoenix through the Chairman and Executive Board with legal council. This is your hierarchy or chain of command that you should follow for current political information and education.
If your County Chairman cannot assist you, please contact another County's Chairman. If you have a Legislative District, your LD Chairman may be able to assist you. Legislative Districts have no authoritative link to the County Committees and work under the purview of Maricopa and Pima County as per Arizona Revised Statutes.
WHERE ARE WE HEADED?
Many people think we have a long and difficult task ahead of us to bring civility back into our country and our lives. Corruption and Communism have entrenched themselves into every institution on which we thought we could rely.
Through education and camaraderie, we can share our values and resources to band against these threats. If you want some insight into just how big our problems are please check out the following links: Whitney Webb at the UnlimitedHangout.com and subscribe to Epoch TV to see The Final War: the 100 yr plot to Defeat America. If you are wondering where your freedoms have gone just look at what the global elitists think of you in this Epoch TV documentary - The Shadow State .
Let's get back to that 1st deadly sin - PRIDE. Be aware and mindful of everyone with which you interact and honestly evaluate their vices and VIRTUES. Classical education teaches these. It's never too late to practice them.
So, there was no red wave in the Midterm Elections. Anxious about growing crime, homelessness, drug addiction and degradation of our Constitutional Rights is stressing us out. It is making some of us downright ugly and aggressive.
Your preferred candidates may not have been elected. We need to work harder on improving the inviolability of the State Election process. There are investigations and court questions in play that are yet to be sorted out. If patience is not your virtue I suggest you get a worthwhile hobby to pass the time.
Now, let us place laws and rules out, open on the table. Opinion and conjecture play no part in where conservatives and the Republican Party are going in the future.
To some, this political arena is a new adventure. If it was not taught to us recently in high school or college, our middle age memories may be unreliable as to how the machine actually works.
It is time to take a constitution class, study Arizona political structure and study the Arizona laws that dictate how politics will be conducted in our state. Dictate is a good word to describe the authority of law but not the authority of man.
Know the difference between "must" and "may" or "should" and "shall".
TRUST BUT VERIFY
Seek out mentors who are successful and righteous in their political careers. Ask questions, especially of those who are telling you "no, that is not how it works". You may just learn that you have been interpreting technical and legal writings incorrectly.
We have a tendency, these days, to seek quick answers by word of mouth from those who would like to present themselves as knowledgeable and expert in politics. Be wary of persons who have not been visible at meetings but rather show up to wave flags or shout down and insult the Board of Supervisors or School Board.
Don't forget to reign in not only your own hubris but that of others. Arizonans have been thrust into the political spotlight on a number of occasions. It only follows that some fall into the lambency of pride and arrogance. Remember that pride, which is thought to be the root of all sin since it turns the soul away from God, is the greatest of all. Admitting that you really don't know something is no sin. It is humility.
"In reality there is, perhaps no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive and will every now and then peep out and show itself; you will see it, perhaps, often in this history. For even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility." Benjamin Franklin
The media is not our friend. They are no longer news sources, so if you are still paying for cable TV you might want to rethink your news source. Try researching apps, government links and original videos for accurate information. Many sites have links to original legal documents. If you are not familiar with legal lingo you may want to bone up. Start with a legal glossary; not reruns of Law and Order.
