Kyl's radicalism not representative of changing AZ

Jon Kyl (R-AZ), a US Senator, is always there to spew the most right wing positions. His radical right positions are an embarrasment to all reasonable Arizonans.

Tonight he was on national news, arguing the feds must keep the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba prison open to fight the 'war on terror'. 'Liberal' PBS, which many Republicans want to cut, had him on.

This 'war' will never end, and people held at GITMO may never get out, never be charged with a crime, and never get a day in court. The existence of this unjust prison, and the hypocrisy it shows the world about US ideals, fuels hatred and terrorism toward America and Americans.

The 'war on terror' is the real terror against freedom. US Dept. of Homeland Security choppers rake southside Tucson neighborhoods day and night since late 03, spreading noise, pollution, and attempted intimidation. Many people don't feel 'protected', they feel violated.

10 years ago, just the suggestion of a US Dept. of Homeland Security would be laughed off as over the top and too '1984', but now Bush makes it a scary reality.

This Bush/Kyl style so-called 'freedom' is not 'conservative', it is radical, and immoral.

Who will step up to take on and defeat Jon Kyl in 07? People in AZ are ready for a new Senator, but not to replace Sen. McCain. A well organized Independent could beat Kyl, or even a moderate, pro-environment, media savvy, well-funded Dem.

Challengers need to step up soon.
