Detroit Free Press 3-31-16

That’s exactly why the Democrat-educrat alliance will attack anything that threatens their de facto monopoly control of public…

164 School Board Seat Vacancies In Maricopa County Alone! 14 Positions with NO CANDIDATES!

[NOTE FROM EAN EDITOR: This is very important information, but don't be fooled by the tone of this statement from Covey. He is correct that there are many school board seats available and MUST be filled with REAL Republicans who respect the principles and platform of the Republican party and not just politicians with an "R" beside their names; who are a fraud.

Unfortunately, Covey…

34 YEARS OF FAILURE

John McCain is running for the Senate again. He will undoubtedly give us the same empty rhetoric he has for 34 years. Why “empty” you ask? Let’s look at the results we are left with after his never ending series of promises over the years.  His tenacious efforts, “hard work” and “fighting for us” have left us with:

  1. Our least prepared military defense on 70 years although he chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee;*
  2. $18,000,000,000,000.00 in debt and…
