Justin Amash: The Man the Chamber of Commerce Can’t Beat

"The annual parade and fair, which locals claim is the largest free fest of its kind, occupies most of the main street and all of a nearby park. By 11 a.m. the best seats along the parade route are taken, and the free sidewalk space has been chalked up, courtesy of a nearby church, with suggested prayers and Bible verses. As the crowd sweats, the grand marshal reminds everyone to return in August for a Vietnam veteran motorcycle ride. “They didn’t really get the respect they deserved when they returned home,” he says. “Let’s make it up to them.”

A few blocks away, at the back of the parade route, the local congressman who has been called “al-Qaida’s best friend” is getting plenty of respect. Rep. Justin Amash, whose libertarian voting record supposedly made him a soft target for more hawkish Republicans, is finding no one who agrees with his opponents’ attacks."

I'm starting to notice the Koch brothers are funding

Quite a few Liberty minded candidates.

Small wonder the left MSM attack them constantly while labeling Jeb Bush, Donald Trump and John McCain as so called 'reasonable moderates'.

Good Article. The Chamber is the Establishment

Here's another good man they'd like to defeat: Kerry Bentivolio US House, Michigan - District 11.

They gave Kerry an award - but he just gave it back, and then blasted them:

“The Chamber of Commerce is beholden to special interests and has long since forgotten the main street businesses that struggle everyday to make payroll and keep their company afloat,” Bentivolio said in a written statement. “It is with great pride that I reject their award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking to exploit people for profit. I am with main street, not Wall Street.”

The Chamber is of course backing the establishment primary challenger.
