Chrony capitalist Republicans make fundraising push to take out Justin Amash

Donors plot against GOP rebel

Business leaders are plotting to take down Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as part of a broader effort to punish lawmakers over the government shutdown.

In a letter obtained by The Hill, prominent Michigan donors request financial backing for Amash’s primary challenger, Brian Ellis. Seven individuals, including prominent Michigan businessmen Mark Bissell, J.C. Huizenga and Mike Jandernoa, signed the fundraising plea.

They argue that Amash “and others have effectively nullified the Republican majority in the U.S. House.”

“[Amash] and a small group of like-minded legislators rejected Speaker Boehner’s plea to pass legislation requiring Congress and the president be subject to ObamaCare, and put on hold the special new tax on medical equipment. This irresponsible action hurt over 50 great West Michigan businesses and was part of the chaos that led the nation to the edge of default,” the letter says.

What did you expect?

A pro-liberty guy shows up and 2 years later is showered with roses? LOL

This is politics. The bad guys have been at it 40-60 years.

How long have our folks been going to GOP meetings? 2? 4? 6? 8? And that's when they show up.

Don't blame the bad guys for lack of our presence the last 20 years. Don't blame them when they show up and control the party and we don't. Bad guys are very predictable, they will always show up and do the wrong thing. You have this knowledge in advance.

Listen to Ron Paul. The plan has always been the same. Eternal vigilance, that means everyone showing up to each and every meeting, month after month, year after year, recruiting more like minded people, engaging them and having them to the same, for 5, 10, 20, FOREVER years.

That's how these problems go away. And that's how more liberty people get elected.

The pit called the GOP has no bottom.

The 3-Ds: disgusting, despicable, and deceitful, but surprising? No.

Whatever happens, here is

what I'd like to see take place..

Rand, Justin, and even Ron, all take the stage and engage in debates prior to primary. The gop/rnc is going to do what they want anyway, I say we just 'crash' the 'party'. Ron woke many up, let's continue the job and keep the momentum going.

They may attempt to silence one great candidate as they have done before, but silencing three? So there ya go.

They have been overwhelming us, it is now time to turn the table.

The Tea Party/Liberty

The Tea Party/Liberty Movement is cleaning the Republican House of it's criminals and throwing out the dead wood. Get over it, it's not going to stop any time soon.

Even if we have to get ugly with it.
