Justin Amash has a posse

The most libertarian-leaning Republicans in the House are now eager to line up behind the congressman some have called the “new Ron Paul.”

National Journal reports: “The House Liberty Caucus, chaired by Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, quietly launched last year with five or six lawmakers attending a hastily choreographed meeting. Now the group holds a biweekly, invite-only luncheon that draws some two dozen lawmakers and is rapidly becoming an ideological home base for those ‘core’ House conservatives who say the RSC’s swelling membership is diluting its ideological intensity.”

Relatively exclusive in its membership, the House Liberty Caucus is led by some of the House’s most liberty-minded Republicans. Reports the Journal: “Amash’s invitation list can change from meeting to meeting, depending on the topic, and at times has included Democrats who agree on domestic-surveillance issues. But the group is driven primarily by Amash and his closest friends in Congress, including Reps. Raul Labrador of Idaho, Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, and Thomas Massie of Kentucky.”

I thought Amash was a man


With enough time, crowds tend

With enough time, crowds tend to gravitate toward principled and convicted people. I see the same process working in my own personal affairs. Unscrupulous people who use others for primarily personal gain don't last long.


This is the type of spark that could light the smoldering rEVOLution a blaze. They say it would only take a small percentage to turn things in a new direction. Semi-organized efforts like this give a mouthpiece that the psychopaths may not respect, but they dang sure can't ignor it. I hope enough aware citizens can get behind this group and turn that mouthpiece into a megaphone! These jokers are going to hear us at some point, I just hope it's before things have to turn violent.
