McClintock: Obama’s Subtle War On Tea Parties – A Warning

With reports of harassment of Tea Party organizations by the government, whether its “visits” to members, double standards regarding access to sites for protests (OWS), or playing games with 501c3 approvals, its clear that under an Obama 2.0 administration  we will have seen nothing yet.

This has reached the attention of Congress though few are willing to speak out. Rep Tom McClintock of California’s 4th district, as he has done since arriving in Congress, is once again willing to grab the flag on this pro liberty battleground issue, demonstrating once again why I think we should force a brokered convention and draft Tom McClintock and call him to choose Allen West as his running mate. Yes I know I’m dreaming. Yet there are similarities to the 1920 rancor that led to an eventual drafting of Warren G. Harding, who later led America out of a post WWI depression.

Not All Congressmen Are Crooks

If there was ever evidence of a Congressman who isn’t awash in lobbyist cash here it is.

Dear Friend,

Thanks to your support, we have raised over $9,000 towards our goal of $15,000 before the reporting deadline on March 31.

2012 is shaping up to be a defining election in our country’s history. With Obamacare, the upcoming budget, and our crushing debt, the very solvency and future of our nation are at stake.

We have before us two paths – Obamacare and the President’s budget in which he levies one of the largest tax increases in American history on one end and on the other, the Republican vision that repeals Obamacare and puts us on a clear path to paying off our debt without burdening job creators.

These are two different visions of America and we must fight to ensure that our version, one that reflects the principles of our Founding Fathers, is the clear choice this November.

Raising $15,000 before the filing deadline will help our campaign reach the thousands of new constituents in the newly redistricted 4th District and let them know directly who I am and the principles I represent – the same principles that you and I hold so dear.

Can I count on your help to reach our goal? Your contribution of $50, $100, $250 or the maximum of $2,500 would be tremendous help towards our efforts.

We are almost there!

Thank you, once again, for your support!

Sincerely,


Tom

Those who know me know I’m an unabashed supporter (not to be confused with “follower”) of the great, but yes imperfect Congressman, Tom McClintock. Until the Tea Party becomes aware of men, and women, like this I question the commitment to Constitution the Tea Party claims to hold.

By admin on March 1, 2012

The Club for Growth, the nation’s leading free-market advocacy organization, announced that from California, three members of the 53 person delegation had received their coveted Defender of Economic Freedom Award – Reps. Tom McClintock, Ed Royce and John Campbell. The award honors Members of Congress who have a strong, consistent voting record on economic growth issues. [Only] 11 U.S. Senators and 34 U.S. Congressmen received the award this year.

“The Club for Growth values Members of Congress who vote based on principle for pro-growth policies that will restore America. The people of the 4th Congressional district of California are lucky to have him fighting for them in Congress,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola.
