Big victory today...

...at the Yavapai County GOP meeting. We (the "Liberty faction") took Chairman, First Vice Chair, Assistant Treasurer, and Assistant Secretary. The unopposed sitting Treasurer is also "alright with us" as far as I know. All that plus a majority (38 of 67) of the State Committee seats, so... very nice!!

Well done!! Now what is next?

1 ready, 49 coming soon?

Go AZ!

My Grandmother lived in AZ and carried a .38 in her purse everywhere she went. It was he only protection... My Grandfather fought in WWII so she could have such Rights.(At least that's what he was told.)

How many of our soldiers have died "defending" our constitution only to have Treasonous/ Terrorist/ Warmongers like Feinstein, Obama, Cuomo etc destroy our Constitution 1 piece at a time? Have they all died in vain?

Good for AZ... Others will follow.
