GOP gubernatorial candidate’s ‘tooth fairy math’ is mythic run-in with reality

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is simply yet another Republican candidate that is so far flung in his thinking that he believes he can easily imaginatively reinvent the political, social and especially financial realities out West.
His insistence that the state can easily somehow grab out from under the thumb of the federal government is a authorize that he’s yet another right-wing ideologue adore Colorado GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez, that wishes his state to take over national parks. However Arizona is No. 8 in the nation in terms of federal funds received annually. The state’s economy is dependent upon the defense industry. No wonder his opponent, Democratic challenger Fred DuVal accuses Ducey of “tooth fairy math.”
Ducey, that resembles a Gila monster in a match along with a Bob’s Big Boy haircut, can easily at least be credited for one thing: A single-minded determination to maintain to his talking points, regardless of exactly what the question could be at the debate. As the former CEO of the Cold Stone ice lotion chain, I can easily undoubtedly see your man in an apron wielding an ice lotion scoop, However I’m not sure exactly how that qualifies your man for governor. And if I have actually to listen to that upper-Midwestern Ohioan accent after November, I’m going to have actually to turn the sound off on my television. (See, we Dumbocrats can easily make superficial points, too.)
Exposing a myth is basic enough to do, However once you are attempting to see through piles of propaganda higher as mountains, it’s basic to grab stuck in the quicksand if you don’t maintain your eyes to the ground. The myth I’m referring to is that Arizonans have actually some type of special independent streak that sets them apart from the rest of the nation. As GOP nominee Ducey puts it on the endless campaign commercials, “We are known for our independence streak here in Arizona.”
Such falsehoods were perpetuated once Washington Times online opinion editor Monica Crowley wrote on July 16, 2014, that the American West is “a region that remained most faithful to the nation’s founding principles of personal freedom, rugged individualism and economic freedom.”
Just takes a little research to discover this is not the case. The point is, Republican gubernatorial candidate Ducey is accused of getting a government bailout as a result of the failure rates and financing, in general, for his Cold Stone ice lotion franchises. It got so bad, it didn’t even take a political commercial to put me over the edge (that is, to inspire an extended commentary). Nope, it was an ice lotion commercial that boasted Arizonans are “fiercely independent.”
How this could be is the root of the myth of the West as somehow being some type of island of do-it-on your own virtues, and additionally helps to explain why Arizona continues to breed such weird political animals. All kinds of ironies persist. State residents, consisting mainly of conservatives and so-called “independents” are unhinged from the fact by politicians playing either a very cynical game, or, are so dyslexic over the state’s genuine history they have actually merely swallowed the Kool-Aid. The fact is out there, somewhere far in the southwestern deserts of the state, waiting to explode adore some type of unexploded ordnance on the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range, 1.9 million acres of bomb targeted rock and dust roughly the size of Connecticut. Yes, Arizona’s elected are very sturdy on defense, the largest section of the federal budget, and, a huge portion of Arizona’s economy.
The American Southwest owes its pretty civilization to the federal government. And Arizona is for good on life support in myriad ways. For example, devoid of water from the Central Arizona Project, a federal project carrying water from the Colorado River to Phoenix and Tucson, such cities would certainly have actually never grown to blob status. Prior to that was built, Prior to Arizona was even a state, the Newlands Reclamation Act of 1902 established the opportunity of raising federal funds for irrigation projects across the West. Since the Southwest is a drought-dry desert, and anyone that lives there is essentially receiving only slightly much less life support compared to what’s called for on the moon.
In 2011 Cronkitenewsonline.com reported “Federal funds flowing to Arizona have actually doubled in the past 10 years.” Citing the U.S. Census Bureau, the report states “Arizona residents, governments and businesses received $64 billion in federal your hard earned cash in fiscal 2010, much more compared to double exactly what the state received in 2001 .” (This year it was reported that Arizona ranked 10th in the nation for federal funds.)
“The biggest enhance in federal funds to Arizona over the past decade was not in salaries or welfare payments, However in federal grants to the state and to local jurisdictions, which grew from $5.4 billion in 2001 to $14.4 billion (in 2010),” the report states, a 164 percent enhance that occurred while the state’s population grew 20 percent, from 5.3 million individuals to 6.4 million. The pretty notion that Arizona is “fiercely independent” doesn’t score pretty higher when, according to Ballotpedia.org, the state is No. 8 in the nation in terms of federal aid to state budgets, much more compared to Colorado, Nevada, Brand-new Mexico and Utah.
Arizona Sen. John McCain joined no mood for mythmaking once he told AZ Capitol Times that “potential defense spending cuts could cost thousands of jobs and $3 billion to the state’s economy.” Yes, it takes a little manure to make the grass green, and rainmaker McCain did all that he could to plow the field. He inserted $14.3 million in a 2003 defense bill so Sun Cor Development could grab its means to buy 122 acres about Luke Air Force Base. At the time, McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers explained the senator “wanted to avoid the Pentagon from closing Luke.” (That worked out okay, However Sun Cor went belly up in 2012.)
Indeed, pork knows best. According to Forbes, as a percentage of GDP, Arizona is among the top 10 states (ranked No.8), receiving nearly three percent of all defense spending, $2,321 per resident. Tucson is among the top 10 for military spending or contracts, receiving $4.9 billion per year. The entire state accounts for 96,000 jobs, $9.1 billion in annual economic output and $401 million in state and local taxes. It’s no wonder that politicians adore Arizona’s outgoing governor Jan Brewer stressed that defense is the state’s No. 1 industry.

So he could be able to scoop ice cream, However it’s not going to do your man much good once going head-to-head over federal expenditures along with Raytheon.

Yes, there are some outlanders out there, and Ducey is one of them. Echoing the beliefs of outlaw rancher Cliven Bundy, that has actually refused to understand the federal government’s authority, Arizona’s GOP front-runner is just amping up the ideology for Arizona’s far right. Yet, the naked truth is, Ducey’s platform is simply yet another run-in along with reality.
