Short List: 8 Potential ‘America First’ Candidates for Attorney General​
by John Binder​
9 Nov 2018​
I cannot pick a winner, but I know a loser when I see one.

Arizona governor, Jan Brewer, vetoed the First Amendment when she put a political definition of discrimination above these 16 words:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; . . .​
Result: Homosexuals got what they wanted, while the rest of us lost another chunk of religious freedom. Brewer was either a fool, or she was lying like a Democrat:


At her news conference, Ms. Brewer acknowledged the qualms that many people have about same-sex marriage and noted that society was undergoing many dramatic changes. “Religious liberty is a core American and Arizona value,” she said, but added, “so is no discrimination.”​
Arizona Governor Vetoes Bill on Refusal of Service to Gays​

Freedom of religion is set in cement, while no discrimination is a recent invention. I, along with everybody else, discriminate every time a choice is made; most notably not associating with an individual that cannot be trusted, or simply dislike their personality. Polonius summed it up for his son:

Hamlet
Act 1 Scene 3​

Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel; but do not dull Thy palm with entertainment of each new-hatch’d, unfledged comrade.​

Incidentally, the guidelines for this forum appear to dispute Shakespeare in that it is vague on the Right to REFUSE TO ASSOCIATE:

Civil rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender people to live openly without discrimination and enjoy equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedom of expression and association.

In addition, check Eric Hoffer’s quote following my messages.

Simply stated: Choose your friends, do not let them choose you.

NOTE: The freedom to choose your friends does not include the freedom to harm the people you do not like.

Our daily choices makes the list of discrimination endless.

Brewer made a choice for everyone when she chose to ignore the First Amendment. The real issue was the government forcing law-abiding Americans to work against their will. Brewer turned out to be no different than dirty little Socialist moralists using the law to impose their sick religion on the country. In then-Governor Brewer’s case it took the form of a veto that all began with a case in New Mexico’s Supreme Court.

Cut through Brewer’s idiotic justification and you will see that her veto was nothing more than the government ordering law-abiding Americans to do something they must do instead of telling them something they must not do.

Show me one state that gives their governor the authority to tell Americans who they must work for. Brewer did not have that authority; so she used her veto authority. I expect the same results from Brewer if she gets the AG job.

Finally, President Trump should be reminded that Jan Brewer’s 10 positives do not erase her one negative.

Jan Brewer was our AZ governor from 2009-15. Her qualifications? Previously a lab tech.
She's an idiot but occasionally she did the right thing, usually under pressure from powerful people like John McCain. Arizona is a God-awful mess because of governors like Brewer and sheriffs like Joe Arpaio. Poverty, homelessness, crime, violence, unemployment, a plethora of illegals, disintegrating public schools and appalling education system funding. But, apparently, Arizonans enjoy the state of our state because when Brewer stepped down the voters elected ANOTHER GOP governor (Doug Ducey) who continued more of the same stupid policies.
