Each morning when I get up and check my FACEBOOK page the lump in my throat grows larger. As I sit here and read story after story about how our AZ Legislature continues to want to rape the funds that support our Public Education.
I read how our Tribal Lands and Indigenous people continue to be viewed as not relevant. How can we allow our State to say that Tribal IDs are not valid at polling places? That Missing, Murdered Indigenous Women are not at the top of the priority list.
I read over and over again about the people who are witnessing others that have to walk away from filling lifesaving prescriptions because the pharmaceutical companies just raised their rates. Or that yet another County has voted to become a Sanctuary 2A.
Those are just a few of the local ones. Do I dare start with what Trump has done today? I used to think what has he done lately? But, my gosh, we can't even get past a day.
I was sickened to see the Senate take party sides and vote against the very oath they took to uphold our Constitution. The past three years have been years like we have never witnessed before and the next 10 months are ours to win. The special treatment that was shown to Rush Limbaugh vs respect and admiration for Sondland or Vindman validates the war that we are in. We must not back down but take a hard stand that enough is enough and vote him out. We have to not let our own candidates discredit our party values. We need to rally behind each and every candidate in each and every race up and down the ballot.
When I get discouraged, tired and mad, I just get up, put on my proud Democrat hat and hit the door.
Thanks for all you're doing Mohave County! We are making a difference one day at time.
