Meet Ruth McClung (Courageous American)

Ruth McClung is a candidate for the US House of Representatives from Arizona's Seventh District.







I'm proud of Ruth McClung. Her opponent is incumbent Raul (formerly Ralph) Grijalva (D-AZ) who has actually called on the rest of the country to boycott his own state for attempting to enforce federal immigration laws through Arizona SB1070. Grijalva presides over an extensive political machine, which with the help of Tuscon's rather strange voter base has supported him faithfully in the past.








As you might expect, Ralph/Raul 
is in lock step with barack/barry.


If you have money to support a candidate, consider sending it to Ruth McClung.

  1. I hope she wins. Imagine not protecting us against foreign invasion.

  2. I hope that every American, regardless of where he lives, will stop and examine his conscience about this and other related incidents. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened. All of us ought to have the right to be treated as he would wish to be treated, as one would wish his children to be treated, but this is not the case.

    I know the proponents of this law say that the majority approves of this law, but the majority is not always right. Would women or non-whites have the vote if we listen to the majority of the day, would the non-whites have equal rights (and equal access to churches, housing, restaurants, hotels, retail stores, schools, colleges and yes water fountains) if we listen to the majority of the day? We all know the answer, a resounding, NO!

    Today we are committed to a worldwide struggle to promote and protect the rights of all who wish to be free. In a time of domestic crisis men of good will and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics and do what is right, not what is just popular with the majority. Some men comprehend discrimination by never have experiencing it in their lives, but the majority will only understand after it happens to them.

  3. Benito- I respect your opinion and NONE of us opposes legal immigration. America is a nation of immigrants. The situation on the US/Mexico Border is presently intolerable and it's not about race.

    Mexico takes measures to protect (principally its Southern) border and one thing all nations have in common is the RIGHT to protect their borders.

    I'm sorry that you see this as an act of discrimination. MOST legal immigrants to the United States do not.

    People who are here illegally need to be sent home. The system and process of immigration to the US, the guest worker program, etc. all need to be improved. But the open border needs to be closed.

  4. What is ironic is the division over SB1070. Both sides have missed their mark on both sides.

    My point, the same that that causes illegal immigration is also causing this economic crisis.

    Fix the economic crisis and illegal immigration goes away. We can all then get back to a much more normal routine of life.

    Best Regards,


    Harley
