This change will insure the voting public that the election results are fair, correct and verifiable to preserve the rights to life, liberty and property of the people. "That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government." This is peacefully embodied in voting. If voting is allowed to fall into a state of no confidence the ony other way the founders of this country left for exercising this right is through bloody revolution...which we wish to prevent.

We the Citizen/Voters of District 22 do not want to be represented by John A. Loredo; a man of questionable moral character. Mr. Loredo was romantically and sexually involved with a married lady, while serving with her in the Arizona House of Representatives. Mr. Loredo failed to guarantee the purity of our voter registration rolls and the integrity of our elections when he voted against Senate Bill No. 2207, April 19, 1997; 2207 would have required all persons to provide proof of U.S. Citizenship when registering to vote, Mr. Loredo voted in favor of the alternate-fuel bill of 2000, which will cost Arizona tax payers millions of dollars. Representative Loredo doesn't think personal morals, Citizen's votes or the Arizona State budget are very important, therefore we demand his recall.

John McCain has become increasingly obsessed with advancing his own personal agenda contrary to President Bush, party leaders and rank and file Republicans. In his insatiable desire for massive national media attention, he has all but forgotten the people of Arizona who elected him. The last straw was his vote against final passage of President Bush's tax cut plan, the very center piece of George W. Bush's successful presidential campaign. John McCain's legislative judgment is no longer acceptable. He is continually sponsoring or cosponsoring legislation that will weaken the civil liberties guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
