Center for Arizona Policy 2016 Voter Guide

 
 
Click here for more information on the anti-LGBTQ, anti-most everything, Cathi Herrod and her "Center for Arizona Policy."
About the Voter Guide

The "Center for Arizona Policy" states that the "Guide is a nonpartisan educational resource" or a "An Impartial, Nonpartisan Look". It is neither. What the "Guide" is is an attempt to gather information that they, and their Director, use to push their agenda. Remember the movie "FOOTLOOSE"? Cathi Herrod is basically the Elmore City Council. Drinking, who you sleep with, what you believe, what you decide to do with your own body are some of the things Cathi Herrod and the CAP want to control. The CAP are a "nonprofit organization that "promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage and family, and religious freedom. "In 2014, the Arizona Republic noted Herrod's long history of influence in the state: "Without winning a vote, Herrod has for two decades powered the state’s social-conservative movement, pushing her agenda in the halls of the Capitol, at the ballot box, and always away from the spotlight."  The "Voter's Guide" is one of the main tools Mrs. Herrod uses to push her propaganda. 1) by saying the "Guide" is  "Impartial, and Nonpartisan". 2) by crafting the questions in such a way as to seem innocuous. 3) By trying to make it look like she has no idea why many refuse to play her game by refusing to answer the CAP questionnaire. In the Center for Arizona Policy's own words:

What you'll find here is the raw information taken from this years "Voter's Guide" minus the subterfuge. After an election these "Guides" are usually no longer available. We have been able to restore the information of the earlier issues with the hope this will be of use to you in pointing out the homophobes and bigots. Enjoy!
