Vote Out Obamacare Republican Heather Carter!

Here is my message to the voters of Arizona’s Legislative District 15:

Hi, This is longtime Republican and taxpayer activist Shane Wikfors with an urgent message to voters in legislative district 15.

Last year I worked tirelessly with Americans for Prosperity and other taxpayer advocate groups to stop the expansion of Obamacare Medicaid in
Arizona.

We were up against the governor, all the democrats, the healthcare industrial complex and a handful of renegade Republicans.

Sadly, we lost that battle but not before warning those Republicans that they would face political discipline in the 2014 Primary elections.

Well that time has come and I’m here to tell you that your state representative Heather Carter, was one of the renegade Republicans who led the effort to embrace Obamacare here in Arizona.

This is our chance to clean house and turn away those Republicans who embraced very bad costly policy.

Heather Carters vote for Obamacare expansion will cost Arizonans hundreds of millions of dollars in new taxes.

According the the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System and the Kaiser Family Foundation, Arizonans will pay $286 Million dollars in new taxes by the end of fiscal year 2016.

Heather Carter is one of several Republicans responsible for this huge tax increase and lowering in the quality of health care.

As this election happens, I ask you to vote out Heather Carter and any of the other Republicans who voted for the Obamacare expansion.

The future of Arizona depends on it.

My name is Shane Wikfors. I wrote and produced this message and I hope you’ll share it with others.

Proposition 121 Corrupts Arizona’s Election System

Well before Election Day, voters throughout Arizona need to get the message that Proposition 121 is a hoax, a major fraud designed to convince citizens that the measure will open the political system to more candidates and voters.

Mislabeled the Open Elections Open Government initiative, the measure does the exact opposite. It is the Closed Elections Closed Government initiative. Arizona voters must not be fooled.

A close look at Proposition 121 reveals a cynical scheme that will eliminate voter choice, foster political corruption and advance extremists by abolishing party primaries and eventually destroy political parties themselves.

Proponents of 121 want to hijack the political system so they can elect candidates of their own choosing and take candidate selection out of the hands of the voters. Unable to compete in the primary system as it exists, they propose an end to the system that has served voters well for decades.

The proposition would abolish party primaries and establish one primary open to all candidates and all voters. The top two finishers in the primary would face off in the general election. Party identification by candidates would be optional.

That is the real flaw in Proposition 121. Voters would have no way to verify the accuracy of  a candidate’s party identification. With no party primary system to verify candidate identification, the system would be open to sham candidates hand picked and financed by special interests out to fool the voters.

What is worse, millions of voters could be left with no choice in a general election if the top two primary finishers represented the same party. With nowhere to turn on Election Day, voter turnout would plummet as citizens would simply give up and stay home.

This already has happened in California where there will be 28 elections this fall with no voter choice due to top two primaries.  Contrary to top two primary advocates, voter turnout was not up in the state’s June primaries and the primaries did not produce more so-called moderate candidates.

Under Proposition 121, candidates with extreme views easily could manipulate their way into a general election. Voters need only recall how the top two system in Louisiana once produced a run off between a candidate with a history of KKK leadership and a corrupt politician who was convicted and went to jail.

Proposition 121 would give political insiders and unscrupulous consultants the vehicle they want to corrupt the candidate selection process. Special interests would pour millions into primaries to elect sham candidates.

The voters need clear choices. They need confidence in the honesty of candidate identity. They need protection against corruption in the election process.

The party primary system provides these safeguards. Proposition 121 destroys them. The measure should be soundly defeated on Election Day.
