We Are in a War for our Constitutional Republic in Every State

 

Red Green AZ Jump PointArizona is a swing state that has swung hard left in key offices and will likely go entirely woke if Arizonans do not fully mobilize the working class against the real upper class. We must do so in every state for the sake of ourselves, the rising generations, and our constitutional republic. We are late in the game, as the Arizona Department of Education has already shown.

Yeah, yeah, “class” sounds Marxist, class warfare and all that, you’re supposed to be against that kind of thing, right?

Do city residents reluctantly turn to conservative candidates to address hard issues like rampant crime or budget crises, or after preferred candidates face personal corruption scandals?

And what the heck happened to VT’s Republican star Gov. Phil Scott–who had the biggest popularity plunge ever measured by Morning Consult polling? All the deets are in the podcast.

Time constraints prevented me from posting this sooner but I still wanted to provide an update on what may be an interesting election year in California. The contest for Governor was more heated than the weather in sunny San Diego at the California GOP convention. Two Republicans are on the ballot with a realistic shot […]
