Over the last few years there have been few reliably conservative Congressmen serving us in Washington, D.C. Many who have told us that they would uphold conservative principles have waffled, bent, and broken in the face of stiff liberal headwinds. It’s not an easy job, standing for one’s principles, which is why when a politician proves that he can do so – we should continue handing him the opportunity to represent us.
Republican [score]Justin Amash[/score] (R-MI) is just such a conservative. He routinely scores among the most conservative representatives in D.C. (between 88-91% since 2011), and he has no problem standing up to liberal corruption from either side of aisle. Rep. Amash is up for reelection this year in Michigan’s 3rd District, and I hope that voters there will send this conservative stalwart back to D.C.
Since you first sent me to Congress, I have witnessed hundreds–maybe thousands–of underhanded attempts to chip away at our rights.
Sometimes those attempts have been successful, and other times we have held the line and kept the enemies of the Constitution at bay.
Along with a growing number of constitutional conservatives in the House, I am doing everything I can to defend the American people against these assaults on liberty. But the political class is ratcheting up its efforts to dismantle our Constitution.
There are bills being introduced every day that erode the rights we cherish. In the last few weeks alone, I’ve heard Democrats and Republicans in Congress endorse violating the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, and 10th Amendments. (I’m sure they’re coming soon for the 3rd and 7th!)
And there is no end in sight.
Liberty is stronger today than perhaps it ever has been, but our influence in Congress still pales in comparison to that of the Washington elites. They’ve been at this game for decades.
For every representative or senator who’s willing to support and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, there are nine others willing to cast those documents aside when congressional leaders or lobbyists beckon. And for every dollar we spend to deliver our message, the DC money circuit spends nineteen to drown us out.
That’s why your voice is vital in my ability to fight and succeed. You see, the Establishment wins when the grassroots don’t stand up. Their strategy hinges on public apathy.
But if there are thousands of you, each playing a role, we can go toe to toe with them. We can stop unconstitutional bills in their tracks and advance pro-liberty initiatives of our own.
I’m confident that, with your help, I can continue to build on the progress we’ve made in the last few years.
To ensure that happens, I need your support today.
In liberty–and always grateful,
If you’re able, please support this wonderful conservative and help him get reelected to office, so that he can keep fighting for us in Washington, D.C.
