America is speaking, better listen...

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, following her signing and passionate defense of the state's new immigration law, now claims 45% of the vote in the state's Republican Primary field. That's a 19-point gain from a month ago and puts her well ahead of all her challengers.

Contrary to pro-illegal lies, the majority of U.S. citizens support the new AZ law and the governor who had the courage to defend the citizens of her state against an invasion our federal government continues to ignore.

I'm sure after the new 'Tax Increase' soaks in
it will not help her because it's going to hurt
the small businesses.

As far as SB 1070 goes, Yes I commend her for that
however her poll numbers prior to that were not that
great

I'm having an issue this election season with people
that have made a whole career in politics mostly because
nothing ever seems to change

This is why I'm keeping an eye on Buz Mills

Her 19 point spike after signing the bill speaks volumes of the atmosphere in AZ regarding illegal immigration and the crime, deficit it brings.

The arizona sale tax is only 5.6%, that is PEANUTS to many areas. Taking a small hit for securing our boarder is a tiny price to pay.

Brewer should hang the banner... "Mission Accomplished". Political ends met.

Which is being raised to 6.6%. Apparently, every single percent counts. Especially considering Arizona is focused on eliminating 8-10% of the populace who contribute via sales tax.

Most of the 'New TAX' is for education or that's what the
countless ad's that ran said

After the last time this was done Arizona is still ranked
as a bottom feeder as far as education goes #49

And if anyone thinks this 'TAX' is going away in three
year is sadly mistaken

Those 8-10% will be replaced with Americans taking back those jobs from illegal aliens and they in turn will be contributing to the sales tax and property tax coffers of Arizona the same dollar amounts if not more. Out of these coffers there will far less tax dollars designated to support illegal alien's social costs. Don't be surprised also if many Americans decide to re-locate to Arizona once their illegal population numbers go way down.
