Author: Eric Morgan (LD22)


WHEREAS, the Republican Party is merely a mechanism to enable likeminded individuals to work together in advancing common goals, and WHEREAS, those collective goals
are recorded in the Republican Party Platform, and WHEREAS, it is not a Party that determines direction, but the actions of its individual members, and WHEREAS, Republican
Precinct Committeemen, being those members, are ambassadors to Republican voters, representing the Republican Party by both soliciting and providing information,
WHEREAS, Republican Precinct Committeemen have taken a pledge to promote and defend the Republican Party Platform, and WHEREAS, elected Republican office holders
are not necessarily Republican Precinct Committeemen and as such may not have taken such a pledge, and WHEREAS, it is the duty of each Republican Precinct Committeeman
to strengthen the Party by ensuring those we elect best represent our Republican values, THEREFORE, we, the Republican Precinct Committeemen of Maricopa County, in this,
the 2016 Primary Election Cycle, hereby pledge to:1) Refresh our understanding of the Republican Party Platform, 2) Evaluate every Republican incumbents performance
against that standard, 3) Work vigorously to re-elect those that have led in accordance with our platform, and replace those we each deem have not with a candidate we believe or
has proven will.

II.

RESOLUTION TO FULLY REPEAL OBAMACARE

WHEREAS, Obamacare has already proven that we indeed cannot keep our doctors if we like them, and WHEREAS, Obamacare has already proven that we indeed cannot keep
our insurance plan if we like it, and WHEREAS, Obamacare has already proven that healthcare costs will not be decreased as promised, and WHEREAS, Obamacare has already
proven to be a massive tax increase on Americas middle class as well as on the poor, and WHEREAS, Obamacare has already become a drag on our economy depressing job
creation and stagnating wage growth, and WHEREAS, Republicans have several alternative plans that return control of healthcare decisions to the patients and their chosen
doctors, and WHEREAS, Republicans have several alternative plans that both increase competition and decrease regulation among providers and insurers to force costs down, and
WHEREAS, Republicans have always realized that repeal was not possible with our current president, and WHEREAS, we are committed to growing our majorities in both
House and Senate as well as winning the presidency,
THEREFORE, the Precinct Committeemen of the Maricopa County Republican Committee, accepting nothing less than full repeal of Obamacare, hereby resolve to a) make our
position clear, by communicating in writing and verbally with our Representatives and Senators , b) maintain constant communication with our Representatives and Senators , c)
actively inform our represented Republican voters in our precincts of the status of such repeal or efforts to defund, and the position of each of our elected Representatives and
Senators.

III.

Auditing voter rolls, 4) Ending ballot harvesting, 5) Requiring photo ID to vote, 6) Ceasing efforts to eliminate physical polling locations

RESOLUTION ON THE REPEAL MEDICINAL USE OF MARIJUANA (previously adopted as Prop 203 in November 2010)

Author: Michael Loverine LD23


This proposed resolution seeks to draft a ballot proposition for 2016, obtain the necessary signatures and put to vote the repeal of Prop 203 which was dubiously passed in 2010.
WHEREAS the passage of Prop 203 authorizing the medicinal use of marijuana was narrowly, and dubiously, passed in 2010, and WHEREAS the citizens of Arizona have
witnessed lax oversight, weak medical rationale for prescriptions being written, and widespread marijuana use for purposes other than anticipated following the passage of Prop
203, and WHEREAS the regretful passage of this ballot measure has further exposed Arizonas children to this dangerous drug and led to increased usage by these vulnerable
young people, and WHEREAS the National Association of Student Nurses has stated that there is overwhelming evidence about the significant negative effects of marijuana use
among young people. Additionally, NASN recognizes that marijuana made available for adult recreational use poses the potential for increased prevalence and abuse potential
among youth, and WHEREAS legal availability of marijuana by any means presents more accessibility to Arizonas youth population, and therefore, puts our young people at
higher risk of the many negative health and cognitive development consequences of marijuana use. THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Precinct Committeemen of the
Maricopa County Republican Committee instruct the County Chair to appoint a committee tasked with drafting a ballot proposition and urging our state representatives to approve
this measure to be placed on the 2016 ballot for the voters of Arizona to repeal the authorization of medicinal use of marijuana in our state.

WHEREAS, the Republican party came into existence to enfranchise a sector of humanity legally deprived of equal protection under law, namely people of African descent,
WHEREAS, the Supreme Court over 40 years ago, through cases Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton, conditionally deprived preborn humans of equal protection under the law,
that condition being that the personhood of the preborn not be recognized (Roe v Wade: The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a "person"... If this suggestion of
personhood is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses, Page 410 U. S. 157for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [14th]
Amendment.), WHEREAS, subsequent technology and knowledge about DNA proves undeniably the biological fact of the existence of a unique human being even before

the inherent authority of local law enforcement, "All officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws shall have authority to make arrests for a violation of any provision of this
section" (US v Perez-Gonzalez 2002 Fed App 0360, 6th Circ.), and including the 2012 U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding SB1070 especially sec 2b eliminating illegal
Sanctuary policies in Arizona, and WHEREAS, we condemn the UnConstitutional actions of Judge Snow and the Obama administrations non enforcement policy and praise

business of ending the lives of unborn children and of harvesting baby parts for money, and WHEREAS, we recognize that almost all abortions are not medical procedures but

ENFORCEMENT TO PROTECT AMERICAN JOBS

Author: Russell Pearce LD25


WHEREAS Arizonas Legal Workers Act requires E-Verify, verifying individuals within seconds with 99.5% accuracy, and WHEREAS, the Obamas refusal to deport has
hampered states ability to enforce our immigration laws, it has not hampered out ability to protect American workers and it is clear the worksite enforcement is Arizonas best tool
for protecting its citizens and their jobs, and WHEREAS, this administrations contempt for the law and refusal to enforce the law, requires vigilance by the states to enforce our
laws and stop illegal employers and Sanctuary policies throughout Arizona, and WHEREAS Arizona has the right to revoke the business license of any company that knowingly
employs illegal aliens, and WHEREAS on May 26, 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-to-3 decision (Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting) upheld the Arizona law. The Court
rejected the pro-amnesty claques argument that immigration enforcement is exclusively the federal governments responsibility, and WHEREAS, Judge Neal Wake made clear
those injured most severely by governments failure to enforce our immigration laws are the minorities, as it is their jobs and their neighborhoods most impacted by governments
failure, and WHEREAS, Arizona has proven that Attrition by Enforcement actually works. WHEREAS, after Arizonas law went into effect, 100,000 illegal aliens left
Arizona, their voluntary departure was millions in savings to the taxpayers and The Supreme Courts upholding worksite enforcement was a victory for states rights and American
Workers. THEREFORE, the Maricopa County Republican Committee demands strict worksite enforcement.
