Justin Amash Goes Totally Beltarian

If you can take it, watch Justin Amash on ABC News 'This Week'.

He throws out libertarian comments from time to time, but his real positions are extremely different.

He is not, for example, against foreign meddling. He stated that "we haven't achieved success yet" in Syria and that he "wants to get the chemical weapons out."

On the domestic front, he wants to cut government spending, but nothing "drastic."

As for Obamacare, he wants to "delay it a year."

Bottom line: Another phony libertarian that MSM will have no problem promoting as a libertarian and featuring on Sunday morning talk shows.

  1. People...get this through your THICK skulls. Getting people elected in The Imperial City WILL NOT be the solution. It is just too corrupting an influence.

  2. Great, the EPJ opposes a delay of obamacare. I will stick with Amash.

  3. Robert is clueless...Justin is the next Ron Paul.


    Foxnews interviews Jesse tentadue to discuss the missing okc tapes. Must watch! Wenzel please post this on the blog! Maybe this story can get some fraction if fox picks it up?

  5. A "New Ron Paul" who is ok with tax increases? I don't find this new Ron Paul to be especially inspiring...

    1. He voted for sanctions on Iran and for the appropriations funding of the govt that Paul voted against every year. Not even close to Ron

  6. Justin is not ok with tax increases

  7. Not nice of Bronstein and you to sully Justin's near perfect Libertarian rep

    Here's JBS Freedom Index report on Justin's votes.
    He scored 100% during the recent 113th Congress and overall 93% during the 112th & 113th
    with only 3 wrong votes overall out of 50
    The Freedom Index is the strictest voting record of all, always based on how votes measure to the US Constitution

    Name: Justin Amash

    Congress: Michigan, District: 3, Republican

    Cumulative Freedom Index Score: 93%

    Score Breakdown:
    100% (113th Congress: 2013-2014); 92% (112th Congress: 2011-2012)

    Even Ron Paul didn't score 100% cumulative overall for the 106th thru the 112th congress
    Name: Ron Paul

    Congress: Texas, District: 14, Republican

    Cumulative Freedom Index Score: 96%

    Congress: 1999-2000)

    Why leave readers with the impression that Amash is suspect?

    1. The same jbs who fired William Norman Grigg for writing too much about the police state?
