View Full Version : Tom McMillin Money Bomb Dec. 30th

12-27-2013, 11:33 AM
For those that might not know, Tom McMillin is a term-limited state rep and is running for an open state senate seat (Senate District 13). He's been the biggest defender of civil liberties in the Michigan legislature since Justin Amash, so it would be a real shame if he didn't get elected in the State Senate.

His primary opponent is the establishment's choice, but the primary and the general are both winnable races for him. I live in the district and it leans slightly Republican.

Friends of Tom McMillin

I've been busy campaigning for State Senate. I've found there are of course a variety of issues that are important to citizens in the Senate district and throughout Michigan. Folks tell me that they appreciate my leadership in many of these areas:

fighting the nationalization of our education and healthcare systems
fighting proposed tax increases and increased government spending
championing a business environment friendly to job providers
championing "value for money budgeting" that is placing more measurements on government spending, to help determine what we are getting for each tax dollar
fighting those trying to neuter the excellent new Freedom to Work law
fighting the government picking winners and losers with corporate welfare
fighting the expansion of government surveillance on us all
championing property rights and privacy rights
championing transparency in government spending
championing our state's 10th Amendment rights against federal overreach
defending our religious liberties and parental rights
defending the unborn and traditional marriage
defending the right for our citizens to have due process

These are not small, flash-in-the-pan issues. These are big issues - that will be around a long time, which is why it is important that I get to the State Senate next year. That 38 member body needs more conservatives who will not back down on their principles under pressure - whether that pressure comes from special interests, lobbyists, fellow Republicans, liberals, the media...or even a governor. I have a strong five year legislative history of holding fast to my principles. That will not diminish if I get to the State Senate.

I'm not really plugged into the campaign yet, but my area has a lot of Ron Paul delegates who should be motivated to help. The other delegates in my town seem to like Tom too. Hopefully he has the same amount of support in the Troy and Rochester Hill area.
