People should be calling the GOP National HQ about this until the lines burn through..
It is the job of members of Congress to explain their votes to their constituents at home (per Ron Paul). Even his liberal constituents should be annoyed by this move. Over time, that makes him more secure in office, and more powerful.
The next move is to reach out to Boehner's constituents, perhaps by some of his prospective competitors and explain to them how he has declared war on representative government, and disenfranchised voters.
What do you think? http://consequeries.com/
virtually NO help to Democrats running for the House; and why would he, when he can get everything he wants from traitors such as Boehner and Cantor?
I think its funny how prior to the election real conservatives are needed but as soon as the election is over they lose their assignments. More evidence to me that, while we should support liberty candidates in the GOP, the GOP will never ever support us. This kind of stuff makes me want to leave the GOP which i only join so i could vote for RP. IDK JS
and truthfully. It should open some eyes (I hope) to just how corrupt the GOP really is.
“The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.”

Today, we proudly support one who says in his defence: "In fact, I voted with the Republican Chairman more than 95% of the time, and I have voted with my party’s leadership more than three-quarters of the time on the House floor."
Before, we used to be proud pointing out that RP was Dr. No.
Time has changed.
...or maybe after Boehner gets through kissing Obama's ass, Obama will just put Amash on his Kill List as a favor to Mr. Golf'n'Tan!
I refuse to play, and really appreciate having you bring it to "neutral ground."
Amash sounds like he's in there swinging at least, glad to see it.
Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
Haaaa....I ,like you, do not have Facebook and also refuse to play. Luckily, his Facebook posts are also posted on his house.gov website.
He'll win in the end because he's right!

Amash for Speaker!
I wish him well battling the beast.
Just curious. I mean, I can see a "meh" response, but I don't get what is so offensive about this post.
I like Rand (and Ronnie, for that matter). I don't think an "instead of.." was implied.
(That being said, if someone suggests Michael was the son Ronald Reagan always wanted...well, use your own judgment on how that might have been intended ;) )
I figured I'd be labeled a "Rand hater", as that is what you are called if you disagree with his backstabbing of his father, and support of the neocons. But I'm really not a "Rand hater", in fact I gave $ to his campaign, and had high hopes for him. But Amash seems to be a little more inline with Ron's philosophy than Rand to me.
We are behind you! And we are many and growing daily!!!
does he go to the repub bldg near capitol,,across street to call begging for donations for hours a day that is a requiremnt of both gop and dem members,,,, and meet with lobbyists and hold gathering in their rooms

Just stay out of trouble, straight home and no bars lol
Justin Amash for future POTUS! ;)

My respect for this guy is growing stronger. Maybe there is blowback from this sort of shenanigans by congressional leadership.
he should show up and go about business as usual. Then maybe someone will have the class or cojones to let him know in person they ditched him. They showed their cowardice, that's for sure.
Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul
Excerpt from Justin's bio :
"Justin was one of only twelve Representatives to have perfect attendance, not missing one of the 948 roll call votes, during the First Session of the 112th Congress. He has been a leading critic of the unconstitutional war in Libya, the indefinite detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act, and the Stop Online Piracy Act—SOPA.
When asked by a New York Times reporter to describe his voting methodology, Justin explained: “I follow a set of principles, I follow the Constitution. And that’s what I base my votes on. Limited government, economic freedom, and individual liberty.”"
Justin is one of the VERY few around who could become the new Ron Paul whenever they'd feel strong enough, if you ask me.
I suspect Justin is one of the EXTREMELY few who have ALREADY started working on it, before The People. By their record.

Thank you for this material.
"I have a message for them : you're dead wrong."
Thank you Justin. Keep standing.
They're even politically dead. Seriously : literally.
For they represent nobody but themselves. Them, idiots + thieves.
I'll add this into the original post.
