EDITORIAL: THE PROGRESSIVE EXPRESS PICKS UP SPEED IN THE MITTEN STATE
Collectively, they are fueling the out-of-control federal government which, like a runaway locomotive, is thundering down the track of debt and lost liberty.
House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has taken the occasion of the latest budget vote to bash conservatives (e.g. Michigan House representatives Amash & Bentivolio, conservatives groups like Heritage Action, and the conservative grassroots throughout our state), leading Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to characterize Boehner’s attacks as “a breath of fresh air.”
Conservatives and libertarians in Michigan are well aware of the animosity that the GOP establishment has for them. The $648,500 raised in the third quarter for David Trott to defeat the incumbent Kerry Bentivolio, who has a Heritage Action voting record of 83%, is a testament to the GOP’s fear of the Tea Party and liberty groups within the state.
Many grassroots conservatives in Michigan will be urging their state representatives to join legislatures from 33 other states to use the U.S. Constitution to call for a Convention of States to carefully fortify the Constitution so that it can stop the runaway Progressive Express “stone-cold-dead” in its track.
Why trust something this critical to Washington, D.C. and its big-government “gravy-train drivers” on both sides of the aisle?
