Unlike the story told by a disgruntled voter, I wrote Congressman Gosar to express my concerns about the threat to our electrical grid from a magnetic pulse delivered by a high altitude nuclear explosion from a communist country like North Korea or future nuclear threats from Iran, or even from our own sun.
Mr. Gosar responded to my letter in five days informing me that he was co-sponsoring HB 2417 called the “shield bill” that would upgrade much-needed protection for our grid from high altitude magnetic pulses. The bill is now in committee in the House of Representatives.
The letter writer discloses his true political agenda when he states in his letter to the editor that “This November I’d sooner vote for the Communist Party than Dr. Gosar.”
I take the writer at their word. I’ll even wager they may have knowingly or unknowingly done so in past elections.
