So I’m driving to work on Wednesday and happened across KOY Radio 1230 news. The news director explains that State Senator Andy Biggs defeated State Senator Steve Pierce in the Republican caucus vote for state senate president. The news director referred to Biggs as “more of a hard-liner.”
To help KOY’s news director understand what a “hard-liner” is, I am making a list below. The real “hard-liners” in the Arizona Legislature are members who demand a bigger state government, a smaller citizen with less freedom, higher taxes, more government control over your life, and they refuse to protect pre-born children. They insist on the politics of identity and seek to use your money to elevate the agendas of radical special interest groups over your best interests. They believe you exist to feed the government’s voracious appetite and that they can intrude into your life to assure that. They are socialists who take a hard line against achievement, personal risk, and success. Here’s that list of hard-liners.
