Congressman Zach Wamp Loves Conservative Bloggers, Ron PaulSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 03/17/2009 - 13:52
U.S. Congressman and 2010 gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp reached out to a group of East Tennessee conservative bloggers for a meeting this week. According to Hear ItFrom.us, Rep. Wamp gave a brief speech, but spent the majority of his time fielding “very tough questions” about everything from term limits to state income and estate taxes.
In addition to doing his homework on the bloggers in attendance, Rep. Wamp also made a point of talking about his Libertarian streak. He reportedly name-checked the liberty-loving Ron Paul on several occasions and talked about his commitment to homeschooling and gun rights. And despite being unaware of a “reasonably popular idea…to repeal the 17th amendment,” Wamp may be seen as Tennessee’s great libertarian hope:
“This is exactly what I hoped for from Ron Paul’s Presidential campaign-I wanted the conversation shifted to the libertarian direction.” -sadcox, Hear ItFrom.us
Confidential to Rep. Wamp: Some of us here at Chattarati share your admiration of Dr. Paul. We’ll await your call for our own blogger meeting.
