Hello, Governor Brewer. I clicked “other” because I wish to address 2 issues with you.
I am so proud, as an American, (a real racist, my Colombian wife would tell you!:-)),over your stance on the border.
Please do not back down.
As the Governor, do you have the power to call out the National Guard and put them on the border for this Emergency?
Calderon just gave an interview about how his country treats “undocumented”(read=illegals) people in his country. It is an ugly picture. (Police ask for papers, jail if you cannot produce them, 2 years first offense, 10 years second, no health care, no jobs, no land ownership, etc, etc).
We need a “reciprocal alien law” that treats illegals from any country in the same manner their home country treats American illegals.
My second issue is your budget. I have a novel idea, and I think it would immediately reduce the states budget and future pension expenditures, while also cutting unemployment for the youth in AZ.
If you stop all government hiring, the unions would eventually die.
Turn all government positions into part-time, “continuing education” courses for students and recent grads.
All positions would be minimum wage jobs, with incentive based performance bonuses, (just like the private sector).
Put a four year time limit on all positions, ending public pensions. Every year, the budget would shrink through attrition.
No unions allowed, they would still be considered students, learning how to survive in a capitalist system, and getting references for their next position, like a report card.
Health care would be provided for all those not otherwise covered, (by parents policy or other policies).
Hire private companies to do anything the government needs, on a temporary basis. Let private companies pay pensions. If the position you need exists in the private sector, they get the job. It is time for government to stop competing with the private sector, instead start using the peoples tax dollars to build up the private sector, putting the tax money back to work building up the economy.
Thank You, and keep up the great work,
