I'm really starting to like Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann. Not only is she a real person, she's got the heart of a lion too!
Bachmann voted against all of the "stimulus" plans, which includes the Bush/McCain TARP debacle, and ripped Bernanke and Geithner over their abuse of power. She considers being in Washington as similar to being "behind enemy lines." As a strong advocate for a stable currency, she stands in bold opposition to the adoption an international currency (at which Geithner has hinted). In regards to the Democrats economy-destroying Cap and Trade tax, Michele says:
I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back.
Michele Bachmann is truly one in only a handful of Republicans actually fighting for the people against the Federal Thugocracy. In a recent brave move concerning the census, Michele Bachmann correctly points out that it is "very intricate, very personal," and doesn't want it being handled by the corrupt organization ACORN. She told The Washington Times, that she's not filling it out either!
I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home. We won't be answering any information beyond that, because the Constitution doesn't require any information beyond that.
Another rising conservative star (also known as the guy "conservatives" love to hate), is Texas Representative Ron Paul. The "cool kids" laughed at his bubble predictions, desire to shut down the Federal Reserve and constant advocacy of a strong dollar for years. History however, has proven Paul was right along, while the "cool kids" got everything wrong!
One great thing Paul does, is he holds a weekly luncheon for members of Congress where he brings in different speakers to have open discussions about various current topics of interest. While he's been doing this for years (with a typically low turn-out (about 10 per week)), the number of attendees started to grow fast last fall, as more members of Congress wanted to learn what went wrong.
Michele Bachmann attends these luncheons faithfully every week! Not only does she like to learn, but she's determined to do the right thing. Thomas Woods, author of the must read book Meltdown (which explains the "crisis" in detail, and how the government is making it worse), said of Michele after speaking at a Paul luncheon:
I had a feeling she’d have some interest in the book, because she asked some good questions. She was taking notes. She was asking if this or that point could be found in the book. I thought I recognized a sincere person who wanted knowledge, not the usual politician who couldn’t care less about what the truth is and just wanted to propagandize.
What about Romney and Bush III (uh, that's Jeb)? What have they been up to? Propagandizing. What about Newt Gingrich? He's busy re-packaging Leftist policy in red, Republican wrapping-paper. Charlie Crist? He's busy protecting RINOs (they are an endangered species afterall) ... It's time to face the music folks: The "cool kids" suck!
While the Establishment continues trying to figure out how to win conservative votes while governing to the Left, a small handful of honest politicos from the party like Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Thaddeus McCotter, and Senator Jim DeMint are busy working on passing HR 1207 The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009, and its Senate companion S 605. These folks want to make a difference!
And don't get fooled by the State Media and Leftist blow-hards in regard to Michele Bachmann either. She's a very intelligent (and attractive) woman, who has a mind of her own. In other words ... She's a threat to Leftist dogma (just like Sarah Palin). The Left fights dirty, because they fear having their myths exposed.
Get behind Representative Michele Bachmann! In our current national situation it matters little what state she represents, because "we the people" need to focus on placing more honest people in Washington, like Michele, while throwing the rest of the bums out!
Other Michele Bachmann Accomplishments of Interest:
- Opposed the auto bailouts.
- Questioned Bush on the Iraqi troop increase (whether you agree with her or not, rest assured, she doesn't make decisions based on the "party-line").
- Opposed an increase in student loan subsidies.
- Introduced a bill to phase-out "light bulb tyranny."
- Fights for freedom by strongly opposing Obama's mandatory Americorps "service-learning."
- Doesn't buy into the "global warming" crap propaganda.
Support Michele Bachmann, a rebel with a cause!
