Location: Kent, Washington, United States

I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Anaheim. I really didn't have much interest in politics in those days.Other than Pres Reagan anyway.My wife turned me on to rush limbaugh and the rest as they say is history.Some Consider me a hard core conservative.I don't,yes I am a conseravtive but I'm more open minded than the hard core ones.For 10 years we lived in skagit county during that time I was a pco Area chair and county yr chairman.Since my wife and I moved to Kent almost 3 years ago the fargo precinct in the 47th district where we make our home has sat empty.Its been actually 5-6 years since its been vacant. The King Gop doesn't like me so empty the fargo precinct sits.

Mike McGavick just what are you?

Good Evening,

First let me start by saying that I'm not a person
that just votes for someone because they have an R
by there name.The decision to write this was not an easy
one, but it needed to be done. So lets begin.

I have often said Mike McGavick is good at taking non
positions positions on almost every issue.Take for example
taxes now he doesn't say he whether or not he would vote to raise
them. The only thing McGavick says is that taxes should be
low, some of you are going to say well he signed the Americans
for tax reform pledge not to raise taxes.This is true he
most certainly did.

However its important to know that when Grover Norquist first
ask Mike McGavick to sign the pledge to not raise taxes he refused.
Only when it looked like Susan Hutchison was going run did he
sign it.You see back in July Susan had already signed the pledge.
The only reason Mike McGavick signed the pledge was because
he knew it could be used against him in the primary.

Some of you are probably saying how do you know this?Because after signing
the pledge in September of 2005 Mike McGavick ask ATR not to send out
a press release and not to add him to the pledge list on there website
but to wait.My question is to wait for how long?It was not until late
December that ATR finally added his name to the list they did so because
they received so much flak from Doug Parris that they relented and posted
McGavick's name. Otherwise I am not convinced you would have ever seen
Mike McGavick's name listed on ATR's website.

My first question to Mr McGavick would be why would you want to hide
something like this? If it were me I would be proud to acknowledge that
I signed it.To this day you see nothing on his website even mentioning
that fact. McGavick's answers about some other issues boggles the
mind.Take for example his position on the immigration plank of the state
GOP platform. He said I am opposed to the state GOP positions but I
understand why they feel that way. Bill Clinton couldn't have said it any
better than that.

Back on March 21st when Mike McGavick had his fundraiser with John
McCain. He was asked by Stefan Sharkansky what he thought about
the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law his response was
the only problem I have with it is they need to close the loop
hole on 527's.For those of you who don't believe me the audio of
this statement is still on Soundpolitics.com.Just go to the archive
section and click on March 2006 and about half way down the page
and you will see it.That Mike McGavick would be in favor of restricting
the right to free speech is scary.

Mike McGavick said not one word about the federal amendment on
marriage that was voted on back in the early part of this month.
So far we have no idea how he would have voted. We do know that he
is pro choice, he very clearly stated that back on march 2nd to
the Seattle pi.The McGavick Campaign I think is of the belief that
the party base will vote for him because he is the lone republican
candidate.So they think that gives them license to say and do
whatever they want.

First of all Mike McGavick is not the only republican candidate
still in the race.Has anyone ever heard of Brad Klippert?I will
state right now that I support Brad Klippert.The fact of the matter is
I could never support anyone who is trying to win by deceiving
his party base.That my friends is just what Mike McGavick is
attempting to do.So take that Joe Feiten and Human life of Washington

You are nothing more than a
typical mainstream republican.
You can't win on substance so
make personal attacks on me.
Sometimes you people just can't
handle the truth.Much less admit
who you really are.

"Mainstream Republican"? Do you even know what the *core values* of the Republican Party are? They are not an Ellen Craswell/Reagan Wing diatribe. The Republican Party was always about lower taxes, personal responsibilty, smaller government and protecting the environment. Not all of this social conservative crap.

Dear anonymous (out of fear),

The *core values* of the Republican Party are, as a matter of legal fact, decided by majority vote every two years at the State Convention. Your liberal wing, which, of course doesn't really support lower taxes, personal responsibilty or smaller government at all, consitently tries to stop platform debate because you always lose. The Party has always protected the environment, but has never supported the con game called *Environmentalism* because it is nothing but a scheme to move property rights from private hands to government. You guys actually support that theft. You are the primary reason we are plummeting to Socialism in Washington State. Gorton, Pritchard, Evans, McGavick, Dunn: not communists; National Socialists.

Wow. Until I read this post and comments I didn't realize what a mess the GOP are in King County. When you start eating your own...what more can I say?

Looking forward to the day when republicans are actually willing to tell voters what the stand for and how they they plan to implement it. I know - I'm dreaming.

It's been awhile and I'm wondering when you'll be blogging again. I always enjoy your account of the goings-on of the GOP.

I love reading this blog because the spelling is always totally crazy and the punctuation is worse. Personally, I think Phil Spackman is cookoo for cocoa puffs, but that's what makes him such an entertaining read. :)

I know Phil personally, and never thought him "cookoo".
I think we are all adults here, so can we at least keep things civil?

Phil, long time with no update? I hope things are well with you and your family.
