From outside the Arizona political process, it can be tempting to bemoan the strident partisanship that creates so much dysfunction around our state’s key issues, from creating jobs to bettering our schools to keeping our communities safe from crime.
Mike Woods refers to them as moments, and considering the season the Hamilton baseball team is having, he should know very well.

Phoenix • A change of heart for three key Arizona Republicans led to the passage of a bill that grants tax breaks to property owners who lease space to churches.
I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper. But what I witnessed this week just blew my mind. What is with these people that we elect to represent us? They represent themselves as being common and ordinary citizens when running for office, but once in office it all falls apart. SB 1062! Why, oh why, couldn’t our elected representatives see the problems with this bill? I’m now convinced that we have idiots on both sides of the aisle representing mainstream America.
I consider the Ahwatukee and Chandler areas that make up District 18 to be very fiscally conservative and not so much socially conservative, yet our legislators continually vote with what their money handlers from the Center for Arizona Policy and ALEC push their way.

There are some startling conclusions we can draw from the election results of Nov. 5 in regards to the Kyrene and Tempe Union High School district’s Maintenance and Operation Override campaigns.
“Keep Kyrene Strong.” You’ve seen the bright yellow signs on prominent corners in the Kyrene corridor, but what does that mean, exactly?
Demonstrating support for budget overrides for the Tempe Union High School District and the Kyrene School District extends beyond party lines, a bipartisan group of local elected officials, including Sen. John McComish, Rep. Jeff Dial, Rep. Bob Robson, and former Rep. Rae Waters will be going door-to-door today talking to voters to encourage support of the two upcoming budget overrides.
Last May, our LD 18 legislators acted like Republicans. I guess I should say they acted to represent the Republican Party that I grew up with. I grew up with John Rhodes, Paul Fannin, Barry Goldwater and Sandra Day O’Connor, to name a few, leading the Republican Party. Sen. John McComish, Rep. Bob Robson and Rep. Jeff Dial represented us by voting to support our Kyrene School District. These education votes directly and positively affect our property values. Charter school choice aside, strong neighborhood schools directly affect whether or not our personal property is valued or not.
Your political beliefs control your future. They will drive you to support the liberty offered by our constitutional republic or they will cause you to aid and abet the dreary mediocrity of the level playing field of the socialists who would destroy our constitutional republic.
Not waiting for formal gubernatorial approval, foes of her Medicaid expansion already are moving to undo at the ballot box and in court what they could not block at the Legislature.
In my 55-plus years as a native of Arizona, our state has always been pragmatically independent and conservative. Only lately has the pragmatism been replaced by dogmatic ideology. This ideology has become more hostile and prominent recently and unfortunately was brought to the forefront immediately before the Holy Days leading up to Easter. It is unfortunate that the vitriolic speak that Maricopa County GOP Chairman Mr. LaFaro chose when speaking at a legislative committee was to compare our governor with Judas’ betrayal of Jesus. It is my opinion that supporting Medicaid expansion to 133 percent of the Federal Poverty Level does not amount to equating Gov. Brewer to Judas.
Spurred by the pleas of a widow of a Department of Public Safety officer, Gov. Jan Brewer signed legislation Friday to ensure that survivors of fallen police officers and others have taxpayer-provided health insurance for as long as they need.
