It was a small sign of hope: a member of the Navajo Nation switching over to the Republican Party. It may or may not represent something big.
Native Americans, long beholden to the party of socialism, may cast him out of the Arizona State Senate in 2016. They may seem him as an outcast, a renegade. We will see what happens come election season.
Carlyle Begay made his decision based on fiscal reasons. Reasons of fiscal sanity. The Republican Party is, with a few exceptions on the state and national levels, the party of fiscal responsibility.
Republicans welcomed Begay to the party and said he is now better positioned to serve his legislative district, including in areas of education and the economy.
The GOP is right, and Legislative District 7 is now in the hands of a state leader who has their better interests in mind.
After all, the socialists are the people of Big Government and Small Citizens with less freedom, the party that refused to even create a budget in recent years when they held power in the U.S. Senate. They are the party that spends more money than the government actually has, and the party that — without resistance — will always call for deficit spending.
You and I can’t operate our personal finances like that, or we’d soon be broke and wouldn’t be able to live within our means.
Hopefully other Navajos will see the wisdom of Began and state leaders who demand the state keep its financial affairs in order.
Hopefully, they’ll realize they’ve been duped by the Democrats for as long as they can remember.
Hopefully they’ll realize you can’t tax yourselves into prosperity, that socialists eventually run out of other people’s money.
Hopefully Navajos and other Native Americans will come around on social issues as well.
They have to, some day. The socialists have led them down the path of destruction. Reservations have been pockets of poverty. Socialists have done them no favors. The socialists are the purveyors of a culture of death, social deconstruction and family disorder. They preach a sexual anarchy that only destroys.
Socialism hasn’t improved employment on reservations. It hasn’t ended social problems. It has not the capacity to do anything to positively impact Native American society. Or any other part of society, for that matter.
Being served by an elected official who understands that is a positive step forward for the Navajo people. We hope they understand that and will re-elect Begay again next fall. Many of his fellow citizens would do well to follow his courageous lead.
