View Full Version : Tom McMillin (MI-SD 13) Money Bomb TODAY

For those that might not know, Tom McMillin (http://tommcmillin.com/issues/) is a term-limited state rep in Michigan and is running for an open State Senate seat (Michigan Senate District 13). He's been the biggest defender of civil liberties in the Michigan legislature since Justin Amash (https://www.facebook.com/justinamash/posts/10152108155383866), so it would be a real shame if he didn't get elected to the State Senate.

If you live in Michigan, you should definitely donate. Outside help is important too of course. You can donate HERE (http://tommcmillin.com/moneybomb/). About 60% of the goal has been collected so far, so it wouldn't take much from this forum to pass this goal.

The state legislature is not only an important path to the federal level, but it is also important for nullification. He recently led the way in getting an anti-NDAA statue passed in the State house and signed into law (http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/american-millennial/2013/dec/27/breaking-news-michigan-nullifies-ndaas-indefinite-/).

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

Below is a portion of a campaign e-mail he sent recently. Thanks everyone:

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.

Tom McMillin is fantastic and does a great job of pushing nullification through the Michigan state legislature. He's good friends with Justin Amash and they're very similar. I hope he can continue to have political success.

Donated earlier, he's definitely on the top shelf of our minor leaguers up here.

I donated $50 earlier. He's about $400 short of the goal so I might donate again before Tuesday ends.
