    Since former Rep. Ron Paul’s last Presidential run, the Liberty Movement’s influence on the Republican Party has thickened and spread. Just in the past few weeks, multiple state GOPs have elected the Libertarian-leaning supporters to key positions within the party. As SLN reported, “The new additions to Michigan’s Republican Party are Andrew Fink, chairman; Amy Preston, vice chairwoman; Brad Shafer, secretary; and Eric Rothoff, treasurer.”

    Michigan isn’t the only state that is seeing a change in ideology – Florida, Arizona and Iowa have all witnessed many “Ron Paul Republicans” become a part of the GOP. Specifically in Florida, Miami-Dade County has surprised many. Sunshine State News explained, “48 to 51 of the approximately 128 new committee persons seated Tuesday self-identify as supporters of Congressman Ron Paul’s Libertarianism/Conservatism…” going on to state, “Two Paul supporters were elected to the board of directors of Miami-Dade County’s Republican Executive Committee; one of the largest REC’s in the state: Rosa Palomino as vice chairwoman and Elizabeth Romney-Robayna as treasurer.”

    In heavily contested and gritty Iowa, a fellow Rep. Paul and Liberty Movement supporter, A.J. Spiker managed reelection as the State’s GOP chairman. The Des Moines Register notes, “After Spiker was elected 11 months ago, he hired Paul movement members as executive director, communications director and finance director. Paul backers have the biggest footprint on the 18-member central committee.” In regards to Spiker and the GOP, The Iowa Republican Party website details, “His fellow former Ron Paul campaign vice-chair David Fischer was selected RPI co-chair.” Iowa’s GOP also elected Paul backer, John Kabitzke and Mark Donald to treasurer and secretary positions; showing a real thirst for civil liberties, sound money and non-interventionist foreign policy.

    Long-time Republican and the co-chairman of the Iowa GOP, who lost to Spiker, Bill Schickel showed defiance against the Liberty Movement, saying, “The words are fine about reaching out and opening the doors of our party, but when our chair, our executive director, our communications director, our finance director are all from the Campaign for Liberty that sends a message that is disenfranchising to many, many of our Republicans,” to the GOP committee.

    Finally, the state of Arizona has seen Ron Paul Republicans’ message resonate as well inside the GOP. In Mohave County, multiple Liberty Republicans claimed spots in the GOP. Joan Lewis was elected to 1st vice chair; Michelle Arnett received 2nd vice chair and Cassandra Mooneyham won secretary. According to Mooneyham, there were other counties as well that saw similar Ron Paul Republican achievements.

    Mooneyham explained, “I see a trend toward holding our elected officials accountable. I also see many people who want to switch from a top down leadership to a bottom up within the Republican Party. They want the PC’s making the proposals to the State and National leadership versus the leadership dictating to the PC’s.”

    As elections veer around for 2014 throughout the legislative branch, it is likely you may see many more Ron Paul Republicans take a seat on the Hill, in D.C.

    ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Vote Shows How Washington Really Works

    Last week the Senate and House demonstrated again why their approval ratings are so low. The 154 page “fiscal cliff” bill was made available to Senators just three minutes before the vote was taken on the legislation. No one can read 154 pages in three minutes, so it is safe to assume that the legislation was passed without being read.

    Then the House brought the lengthy and complicated bill to a vote just 22 hours after the text had been available, meaning a full reading of the legislation was not likely possible. This was a clear violation of the “three day rule” adopted by the 112th Congress, which in the name of transparency ordered the House to make legislation available to the public a full three days before a Floor vote.

    Perhaps this race to a vote, amid cries of the end of the world without a solution to the manufactured crisis, explains why an even greater than usual amount of special-interest carve-outs made it into the bill.

    Article 1, Section 7 of the US Constitution clearly states that “All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives,” but as has been done many times, the Senate simply attached its bill to an existing House bill and claimed that this Constitutional requirement had been satisfied.

    If the process was dishonest and unconstitutional, the content of the bill was even worse.

    The “rescue” legislation was packed full of special tax deals for well-connected corporations with the money to hire high-profile lobbyists – usually those who have spent a good deal of time as legislators themselves.

    The principle of tax cuts and breaks themselves are not the problem, however. It is incorrect to view any return of tax money to its rightful owner as money taken from the government. Wealth belongs to those who generate it not to government. However, while well-connected special interests like Hollywood and rum manufacturers were being granted targeted tax assistance, the vast majority of Americans were being hit with a significant tax increase in the form of higher payroll taxes. Rather than cut a dime from federal spending, this bill granted breaks to the corporate elites and paid for the “lost revenue” by passing the costs on to the rest of us.
