Will you join me in calling/writing Boehner to protest his PURGE of conservatives including AMASH &JONES from committee seats?

Amash purged from Budget, Jones from Finance where he was vice chair of the subcommittee on domestic monetary policy (Ron's committee). (thanks tsai for that addition)

Ron should have run again. They would have known there would be furor if he had still been there. I think we need to show them we haven't gone anywhere, and protect our interests.

What do you think?

"Speaker John A. Boehner initiated today a small purge of rebellious Republicans — mostly conservatives — from prominent committees; it’s the latest instance of the Ohio Republican’s clamping down on his fractious conference.

The decisions were made by the GOP Steering Committee at a Monday meeting, which reviewed a spreadsheet listing each GOP lawmaker and how often he or she had voted with leadership, three sources said.

Reps. David Schweikert of Arizona and Walter Jones of North Carolina were booted from the Financial Services Committee. Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan and Tim Huelskamp of Kansas were removed from the Budget Committee.

According to a source, Schweikert was told that he was ousted in part because his “votes were not in lockstep with leadership.”
Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, said, “The Steering Committee makes decisions based on a range of factors.”

One GOP leadership aide said, “Changes are made for a variety of reasons, most often at the request of committee chairs.”

Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, an outspoken conservative, was placed on the Financial Services Committee, something that a second leadership aide noted to demonstrate that voting record was not the only reason behind the changes.

All of the lawmakers other than Jones were rebellious right-wingers. Huelskamp and Amash, for instance, both voted against the budget proposed by Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin in committee and on the floor, because it did not cut spending fast enough. They also voted against the current continuing resolution that is funding the government through the end of March."

When should we get #PurgeBoehner trending on twitter?

a couple of people are trying to get #purgeBoehner trending on twitter but I think it might do better with some lead time and build up. When would be good? I think it is a good idea though. But we should make sure it goes to his account as well: @SpeakerBoehner

but you can retweet this if you like: https://twitter.com/usernamenuse/status/275818772718305280

serious question

Did Justin Amash ever endorse Romney? I saw this older video that said that he "might" be endorsing Romney. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JfLcudo0U0

No, he said before RNC he would 'support the nominee' but he

never endorsed him and made it clear Ron was the only one he endorsed, even after RNC, although he did support the party nominee. Doubtless that plays into it. Jones endorsed Ron, as well.

Let Boehner know your thoughts...He needs a trip to the ol' ...

woodshed for this move.

And Paul Ryan and Hanserling, is it? the chair of the committees

Reports in roll call and the NY times suggested they would have had to agree, typically.

My email to Representative Boehner:

Dear Mr. Speaker,

I was very saddened to hear that you have cut Justin Amash, and other fiscal conservatives, from the Budget & Finance Committees. I spent the majority of my life believing that Republicans stood for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. It is actions like this that have caused me to lose faith in the Republican party.

I am what you would consider to be a young voter. People my age don't care about the rhetoric in Washington. We want honest representatives and we can see through the duplicity. We don't listen to what Fox, CNN, or MSNBC tells us, rather we tend to think for ourselves. I think that is why we like Ron Paul so much. He gives it to us straight and doesn't tell us what to think. The frankness is refreshing in a world of spin.

I'm not asking you to change your choice in this instance as I don't believe that you care about what I think. I'm just letting you know that the Republican party has lost another young voter.

Merry Christmas.

Seth

Nice

.

Exactly how I feel Seth

Thanks for putting up the comment.

Tactfully use Boehner's

Tactfully use Boehner's alcoholism and other vices against him. Expose him nationally and embarrass his supporters at both the federal (congress) and state levels as much as possible. Sure, there's always the sympathetic side of humanity so use tact in exposing this drunk. His alcoholism has NO place in a position like the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

***

I called and left a message.

Mr. boehner, I have come to understand that you have purged Amash and Jones from their respective committee seats!? Have you turned completely LEFTIST!? I strongly urge, no, I DEMAND that you reseat these fine true conservatives.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Boehner

is my ConMan here it the 8th district of oHIo. This district is 90% zionist neocon territory. Boehner usually runs unopposed because the dems do not want to waste the time or money running anyone against him. Boehner is here to stay.

I have been voting against him for years but he always wins with over 90% of the vote. This past election I wrote in Mickey Mouse.

We are stuck with Boehner until his 3 pack a day cigarette habit or his extremely heavy drinking...the hard stuff, kills him. Or maybe the timer on his sun lamp will fail while he is tanning and he will be roasted...or die of skin cancer...these are the only ways to get rid of Boehner...we ain't gonna vote him out.

CRAP!!

!!

Thank you.

I needed a good laugh.

It is time to get to work.

Print out material and start passing it out. You do not need to refer to r3volution, Ron Paul or Liberty (considering the neocons in your area). Just jot down all of his pathetic rhetoric/actions and get it out there. There is 1st Amendment for a reason. Use it.

It is local/state that is most damaging. boehner must be purged of HIS seat!

Don't waste your time

writing Boehner...he will never read your letter. I used to call his office but I gave up because his people there are well trained to listen only. They will never comment on anything John says or does and they will never answer any question you ask. It is like talking to stoned zombies. This is the truth and it really sucks.

I left a message. If enough do, it WILL get back to him.

I will NEVER back down.

When is Boehner up for reelection?

The Liberty Movement needs to focus its power on squashing that little cockroach into oblivion.

Not soon enough.
