This is why we are WINNING! (And How to Really Shake Up Washington)Submitted by teddlem on Tue, 12/04/2012 - 06:55
The news that four members of Ron Paul's House Liberty Caucus (three of whom were endorsed by Dr. Paul himself) were kicked out of their committee assignments is evidence that the GOP establishment fears the growing liberty movement within the party.
This is the same treatment Ron Paul got for decades, but now they've got to do against many liberty-minded congressmen. Moreover, the liberty movement is sending Reps. Amash, Schweickert, and Jones some reinforcements (esp. Thomas Massie and Kerry Bentivolio) in January, and Boehner knows it.
Perhaps it's time to start thinking about the Liberty Caucus negotiating with the Democrats over the Speakership and control over committees. The strengthened Liberty Caucus in January would be enough to tip the balance of power. If liberty-minded congressmen can't get fair assignments to committees with the GOP, maybe -- as Ron Paul did under the Democrats -- they might get a more fair hearing in a negotiated settlement. That would really shake up official Washington. Anyway, we're winning! Here's the link to the Roll Call story:
