Default Public Embraces J.D. Hayworth for U.S. Senator

Public Embraces J.D. Hayworth for U.S. Senator

U.S. Senate Candidate J.D. Hayworth delivered some powerful promises to several hundred people attending his town hall this week at the Rowle P. Simmons Community Center in Prescott.
Local residents filled every seat in the community center auditorium and lined up elbow to elbow against the walls, welcoming this rival to senior Sen. John McCain to the stage with whistles, robust applause, hoots and hollers. “You really know how to encourage a conservative candidate for the U.S. Senate,” Hayworth said, as he took note of the obvious support in the room for his candidacy.
He thanked those who came to hear what he had to say for their support and his opponent for “the opportunity to gather in a free republic.” He also thanked the military veterans in the room and families of U.S. soldiers continuing the fight for freedom. He then thanked Yavapai County Republican Chairwoman Jan Smith for attending, noting what a challenge it must have been for her to make her way through the crowded room on crutches.
Hayworth spent a good portion of his town hall time correcting what he called “misinformation” and “finger pointing” in the media and in McCain commercials in an effort to “set the record straight,” while admitting he’s been advised to stay positive.
He kept fairly positive in his presentation, even though he couldn’t withstand the temptation to tell the audience that the McCain radio ad condemning him for supporting a bill that saved the snakes in Guam also was supported by McCain.
He told the audience he “can’t turn a blind eye to needed infrastructure improvements in Arizona” and promised to side with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in cracking down on illegal immigration rather than providing amnesty freedom to foreigners threatening social security benefits and the safety of U.S. citizens.
“In the midst of these economic times, you’re looking for economic guidance from Hillary Clinton,” he said, referring to McCain’s relationship with the Clintons and support of President Barack Obama. “You aren’t listening to Arizona.”
The crowd went wild with support of Hayworth’s conservative stance on protecting the borders and cracking down on terrorists throughout the town hall session, often reminiscent of a religious revival with continued interruptions of Hayworth’s speech.
In fact, it took several moments for the crowd to quiet down so he could get on with his presentation when he spoke of the $2.6 trillion dollars taxpayers would have to shell out to pay for social security benefits to non-U.S. citizens, not including healthcare costs, if McCain’s Illegal Alien Amnesty Plan is approved.
“Border security is national security,” he continued. “And you who love and revere and read your U.S. Constitution know that it says, ‘the U.S. shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government and shall protect each against invasion.’”
In order to provide security and guarantee sovereignty of our Federal Government and our Federal Constitution it is eminent that immigration from the northern and southern borders of the U.S. be handled as an “invasion,” not a political issue that needs to be “managed,” he said.
He said harsher rules need to be implemented in dealing with terrorist prosecution, especially given the fact that the nation is coming up on the 10th anniversary of the 9-1-1 attacks and terrorism continues to threaten the lives of citizens and our military troops.
Hayworth promised to listen to the public and follow their direction, as well as only stay in office for two terms, if elected.
He opened the town hall to questions from the public, and continued the meeting to allow those who stood in line to speak their opportunity even after the one-hour hold on the auditorium for his presentation had passed.
No one spoke against his views or challenged him on any of his stances.
Prescott resident Jerri Smith Fornara stepped up to the microphone and told Hayworth she represents five generations of Arizonans and has been active with the Democrat Party for several decades. However, she continued, “I believe (Gov.) Janet Napolitano should have been relieved of her office.
“I’m a lifelong Democrat but I’ve voted for a lot of Republicans like you,” she said. The final straw for Fornaro’s patience in McCain actions was his proposed bill for regulating neutraceutical businesses.
Hayworth assured her he would fight such legislation as it creates “more unnecessary bureaucracy.” He then asked her if she would like to be the Yavapai County Chairman of Democrats for J.D.
She continued by saying she has taken her support for Hayworth’s candidacy outside Arizona, asking longtime acquaintance Ralph Nadar and Hollywood stars like Warren Beatty to help raise money for Hayworth’s campaign.
Other audience members complained about restrictions to freedom of speech, betrayed trust from elected officials and accountability. They asked him for his help in fighting the “progressive movement” underway at the capitol under President Obama’s reign.
Hayworth promised he would handle things differently if they put their faith in him and vote him into office. He also asked for their help to “send a wake-up call to Washington that will accommodate in 2012 the re-election of a new President.”
He warned that Obama’s bailouts of banks would result in bank loans to finance his next campaign to retain his office, and said he welcomes debates with McCain any time, any place.
