McCain's "Double Talk Express" waffling on immigration . . . could it cost him ?
Which votes does he "court" . . . anti-immigration or Hispanic ?

In January polling, former Congressman J.D. Hayworth was at 31% with the
former Minuteman leader Chris Simcox getting four percent (4%) support . . .

Hayworth, a conservative former congressman who now is a popular radio talk show host in Phoenix,
was reportedly interested in the race but had not formally even declared for it yet.

Simcox, the founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and a prominent figure in the movement
to clamp down on illegal immigration, announced in April at an event on the Mexican border
that he's resigned from the group to run in this 2010 Senate primary.

McCain was forced to abandon his own immigration reform legislation during last year's Republican Primary,
a move that may have cost him substantial Hispanic support . . .

"So he's basically getting it from both sides on this one."

Last week, with former U.S. Congressman J. D. Hayworth officially launching his bid on February 15, 2010, in Phoenix,
Simcox dropped his campaign to endorse Hayworth, saying that he wanted to present a united conservative front.

Can independents vote in the primiary? I heard today 17 states don't let independents vote in the primiary.

I don't know about Hayworth, but I think anyone is better than McCain. We need to chip about at these moderates. I would have to do some more research about him, but I don't think we would be lucky enough to have a liberty candidate. Too bad Simcox didn't pick up more momentum.

I agree. Hayworth isn't a great candidate, but he's much better than McCain, and it would be good to see just about any incumbents booted, especially guys like McCain.

McCain : "I am confident that the people of Arizona will judge me on not what I have done for them . . .
but what they think I can do for them."

The Arizona bench is full of Democratic candidates who might run against John McCain in 2010. The problem in projecting McCain's challenger is that Arizona also has a wide-open Governor's race that year too.

Sarah Palin jokes about McCain's age . . .

McCain does look in pain when Sarah is on stage.

Why do they call Hayworth a conservative?

I stumped for Ron Paul in 2008, leafletted my district and part of another one the weekend before the California primary. I will never forget the morning of the primary, how Forked-Tongue McCain started airing a radio ad flip-flopping his positions on illegal immigration to be more in alignment with Ron Paul's and thus take the wind out of RP's sails.

I don't trust McCain, and I don't trust Sarah Palin, who is a shill for McCain and who strikes me more as a chorus girl attuned to the current "top 40" songs of the populace, and without any solid tea party or libertarian credentials. I have been sickened seeing mainstream GOP associated with the tea parties, which is one reason why I don't do much with them any more...

Because compared to McShame he is. ;)

update-for those who are interested in this race, McShame has been running plenty of smear ads against J.D. I don't care much, as I'm not in the GOP, but I hope that's of some use to y'all.

Jim Deakin would be the better choice in this race than Hayworth.

Spot on... Sarah Palin is the lipstick on the GOP pig.

That's true. However, while Montesquieu once wrote that we often should accept a tolerable evil rather than risk an unproven one, that's the smae logic that gave the country a second Bush term. McCain needs to go, even if J.D. is FAR from being a consistent (true) conservative, either on foreign or domestic policy.

Why isn't Deakin getting any notice? It seems like we have a real liberty candidate in this race.

Is he in the polls at all?

The Issues

Jim Deakin for US Senate
Founding Fathers Principles:

United States FlagThe federal government is limited to those few powers that it was expressly granted in the Constitution. Whereas the states may legislate in nearly any area, save for those foreclosed by federal exclusivity and the natural rights of the people.


Principles:

* America is good.
* The United States is a Representative Republic, not a Democracy. Democracy is doomed to fail by usurpation by tyrants.
* Freedom is a gift from God, not a benefit of Government. With freedom comes responsibility.
* All rights are given to us by the Creator. The role of Government is to protect those rights.
* Government cannot give us rights; Government can only work to restrict rights.
* Government regulation used to control individual freedom and liberty must be stopped.
* Government oversight to protect individual freedom and liberty is required.
* All men and women are created equal, and are entitled to equal protection.
* No one is above the law. Not even the Government or Elected officials.
* Free markets work best. Supply and demand creates a culture of continued prosperity and innovation.
* Our economy relies on a strong dollar. Manipulation of our currency by the Federal Reserve, IMF and World Bank must be stopped.
* Freedom is not dependence on the Government to provide for you. Freedom is the ability to provide for yourself and the ability to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Armed Forces and Veterans:

Armed ForcesAmerica is not a conquering nation and our forces should only be used to protect our interests and direct threats against our allies. Any use of our military to expand political control by our civilian leadership must be stopped. We are not the world police and we need our men and women to protect our freedom. America should lead by example, not through the force of our military. Veterans deserve better. Everyone who served should be at the top of the list and first in line for all benefits provided by our government. No waiting, the DOD knows who is disabled and must share that information prior to discharge with the agencies responsible for post service care and financial assistance.
The 2nd Amendment:

Jim Deakin answers questions for the Gun Rights Examiner
Native Americans:

Sovereignty and Freedom do not belong only to the immigrants of this continent. Native American Tribes can control their own trust funds and lands. They do not need our federal government interfering with their lives and traditions.

Example: In 1987 the Supreme Court ruled that as sovereign political entities, tribes could operate facilities free of state regulation. In 1988 John McCain and Daniel Inouye drafted S.555 establishing The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. This act allows the federal government and state governments to “regulate” aka TAX the sovereignty of the tribes.
Empower States:

Interstate Commerce is only those products and services which are transported across state lines. Federal interference of intra-state transactions is unconstitutional.
Limit the Size and Scope of the Federal Government:

Every department should be scrutinized for constitutional authority and duplicity. Government can be made smaller if we eliminate the areas where two or more departments provide the same function and all functions should pass constitutional muster. We do not need a more efficient government, we need less government.
Taxes:

The tax code is so complicated that even the Secretary of the Treasury and the Chairman of the committee tasked with writing and approving tax laws do not understand and cannot follow the laws. Simplification of the tax laws must be a priority. One example is the Fair tax and repeal of the 16th amendment to the Constitution. Other options are possible, the goal is to simplify the taxing process and empower states by giving control of cash flow to State Government.
Environment:

My experience and education make me believe the thousands of scientists who conclude human beings are not the cause of climate change and any actions we take will have miniscule impact on the planet. We should be good stewards of our planet. Paying 25% more in taxes is not good for the environment, our economy or American jobs.
Immigration:

ImmigrationLegal immigration is what made this country great and what will keep us safe. Everyone that comes to this great country must do so legally.

NO AMNESTY! SECURE THE BORDERS! ENFORCE VISA LAWS! ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!

We have so much opportunity that immigrants from all over the world have flocked to our shores. All of that changed starting in 1965 with the Immigration and Naturalization Services Act. The failed policies must be revoked.
Support a Culture of Life:

Pro-LifeI am pro life. Life begins at conception. Life should be protected through to natural death. Government controlled health services which would ration care or encourage ending life will be rejected.




Support a Culture of Family:

MarriageMarriage is the bond between a man, woman and God. The role of Government in the contract between individuals to share living arrangements, property and responsibility should be treated as any other contract between parties. Charities including religious organizations bring benefits to our communities much more quickly and efficiently than the government can. Taxing individuals so the government can pick charity winners and losers violates the personal property rights of individuals. Children deserve the best education available. Taxing individuals, then forcing states and school districts to beg for federal dollars is not productive and does not provide the best educational opportunities.


Health Care:

Health CareFederal Government should be hands off. The current federal regulations restrict the rights and freedoms of state regulatory agencies, individual insurance providers and individuals. Federal Government interference is the cause of the problems.
