Convention of Statesmen


Tea Party Response to Obama's SOTU given by Senator Mike Lee

Senator Mike Lee gave the Tea Party response to Barack Obama's State of the Union Last night. It was a brilliant speech, striking the right tone on every note, much unlike the SOTU.

Senator Lee said, “Today, Americans know in their hearts that something is wrong. Much of what is wrong relates to the sense that the ‘American Dream’ is falling out of reach for far too many of us. We are facing an inequality crisis — one to which the President has paid lip-service, but seems uninterested in truly confronting or correcting.” 

 Here is the entirety of the speech.

Lee made an excellent point, “But where does this new inequality come from? From government — every time it takes rights and opportunities away from the American people and gives them instead to politicians, bureaucrats, and special interests.” Senator Mike Lee

All inequality in America comes from the abuses by our federal government through overburdening regulation: i.e., the 2,700 page Obamacare law has 27,000 pages of accompanying regulations. This is only one example. If you look at everything else the American people are being crushed by our government, you'll find the burden to be astonishing. Nearly 60% of every paycheck goes to some sort of state or federal taxes when you add in the "fees" that are "not taxes".

Without question it is time for Senators Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Tim Scott to lead us out of this unholy mess we've gotten ourselves into. There are a number of good candidates, who will join Mike Lee, running for federal office around the nation, ones that I support strongly. 

They are:

California: Tim Donnelly for Governor
Connecticut: Carl Higbie for U.S. Congress
Georgia: Jack Kingston for U.S. Senate
Kentucky: Matt Bevin for U.S. Senate
Maryland: Dan Bongino for U.S. Congress (Text BONGINO to 33733)
Montana: Ryan Zinke for U.S. Congress
Nebraska: Ben Sasse for U.S. Senate
Nevada: Niger Innis for Congress
South Carolina: Bill Connor for U.S. Senate
South Carlina: Tim Scott for U.S. Senate
Utah: Craig Bowden for U.S. Congress (Text BOWDEN to 33733)
Utah: Chris Stewart for U.S. Congress (Text STEWART14 to 33733)

State Races

Utah: Bill Both for House District 22 (Text BOTH to 33733)
Utah: John Stevens for House District 57 (Text STEVENS to 33733)
Utah: Sione Tavake for House District 51 (Text SIONE to 33733)

When you opt-in to the campaigns of these candidates, you are then able to make donations with your phone, participate in polls, receive instant communication from them, and participate in contests. There is no cost to you to participate if you have a texting plan on your phone. You will receive no more than 4 to 5 messages a month, generally speaking.

I will continue seeking out good candidates from across the nation and post them here and in the sidebar of this blog. If you find statesmen running in your area of the country, please let me know who they are. I'll speak to them and help them if I also find them to be a statesman.

In the meantime, kudos to Senator Lee. A job well done, sir.
