My email to Speaker Boehner

Dear Mr. Speaker,

I was very saddened to hear that you have cut Justin Amash, and other fiscal conservatives, from the Budget & Finance Committees. I spent the majority of my life believing that Republicans stood for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. It is actions like this that have caused me to lose faith in the Republican party.

I am what you would consider to be a young voter. People my age don't care about the rhetoric in Washington. We want honest representatives and we can see through the duplicity. We don't listen to what Fox, CNN, or MSNBC tells us, rather we tend to think for ourselves. I think that is why we like Ron Paul so much. He gives it to us straight and doesn't tell us what to think. The frankness is refreshing in a world of spin.

I'm not asking you to change your choice in this instance as I don't believe that you care about what I think. I'm just letting you know that the Republican party has lost another young voter.

Merry Christmas.
