Fellow Tea Party members have you heard? Doug Hoffman, in the 23rd Congressional District in New York just showed us here in the 6th Congressional district in Michigan that it is possible. Hoffman ran as a conservative independent against the more liberal DeeDee Scozzafava who was the pick of local Republican Party leaders and prominent Washington insiders like Newt Gingrich.
Doug Hoffman bucked the Republican Party. He stuck to his values and his principles, and by doing so he gained the respect and support of conservatives across the country who are looking for leadership. When Fox News reported on his campaign, I am proud to say that Tea Party groups across the country quickly rallied to his help his campaign. His fight against the “clueless” Republican Party leadership even gained the support of prominent conservative leaders like Sarah Palin and Fred Thompson. Finally, when it became apparent she could not win, Scozzafava's team pulled the plug on her campaign.
Doug Hoffman showed us we can do it. We really can dump “Frat-boy Freddie Upton”, the clueless R.I.N.O. congressman that local Republican Party insiders tell us we have to support – because he has Whirlpool family money.
We really can revolt against this arrogant elitist who voted to stab pour troops in the back and cut and run in Iraq. We can replace this clueless big spender who supported among other things the Wall Street bail out and the “Cash for Clunkers” bill that did nothing but pile billions of dollars of further debt on our nations economy.
Think about it for a minute. Frat-boy Freddie has never held a real job. His Whirlpool family money bought his congressional seat for him when he got out of college and he rode Ronald Reagan’s coat tails to victory. He is the typical country club Republican who knows more about Washington cocktail parties than what his 20 years of big spending in Washington has done to the lives of Michigan residents.
Doug Hoffman did it – We can too. South West Michigan Tea Party Patriots, let’s find a good, solid conservative with family values to represent the 6th congressional district in Washington.
Let’s send a message to the dry-rot in our own local Republican Party that they can’t take our votes for granted.
