Defenders of Liberty International
What does it mean to be an American? An American is a free citizen who has God given rights guaranteed & protected in the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Some of these rights are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, or in other words, Property. One other clear distinction of a U.S. Citizen is the American dream, which is the constitutionally protected right to own a home or business and the freedom to progress and achieve success as one sees fit without unnecessary and undue restrictions and burdensome regulations.Click here to read more

- 36. Arizona's Drinking Water, CAP, NGS, and the EPA
by Patrick O'Malley
LD 12 / Queen Creek Precinct
Everybody in the East Valley relies on Central Arizona Project (CAP) for their drinking water. All the larger cities including Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and others rely primarily on CAP and SRP canal water as the source for their drinking water, with wells mostly for backup. CAP is both the biggest water provider and the biggest electricity customer in Arizona.
It takes a lot of electricity to move water uphill from the Colorado River through Phoenix and on to Tucson. The Navajo Generating Station (NGS) located near Page is a coal fired power plant and it supplies 90% of CAP’s electricity. CAP receives special rates because they consume about 25% of all the power NGS generates.Click here to read more
- 37. Horne Files Legal Appeal As EPA Tries To Force $1 Billion Scheme On Arizona Utilities & Customers For Pollution Control Effort That Would Have No Discernible Effect.
"This attempt by the EPA has nothing to do with ensuring clean air and everything to do with trying to eliminate coal as a source of electricity,” Horne added. “The terrible irony of this is that the supposed improvement in visibility the EPA wants to achieve is not even visible to the human eye. These plants are being told to reduce haze that cannot even be seen and has no effect on a person’s health. That is ludicrous, and it causes a tremendous hardship to every Arizonan who uses electricity or drinks water; in other words, everyone.”Click here to read more
