So, according to some folks, you hate liberty and are a RINO if you’re a Republican and voted against the Amash Amendment. No doubt the TEA Party will soon be gunning for Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA-09) (and others in the Georgia Republican delegation) after his vote against the Amash Amendment. I mean, he’s in Washington now, so that obviously means he’s a part of the evil #Establishment, hates #liberty, hates the #Constitution, BFFs with President Obama, and probably hates both kittens and puppies.
Former Gilmer County Republican Party Chairman George McClellan sent out a letter via email from Congressman Collins (it’s in a PDF format) in response the cries that the good Congressman voted the “wrong way” on the amendment and is a RINO.
It’s a good response, and it certainly shows that he’s trying to represent his constituents by thinking through the unintended consequences of the program as much as he can. Read it, and if you disagree with his position, that’s fine. We all don’t see eye-to-eye on everything, but at least this shows me that the congressman is taking his job seriously rather than voting as a conservative knee-jerk response.
I like George’s last line in his email:
When Common Sense is finally and totally replaced by pure political nonsense then we can criticize him for his vote. Until then Carry On Doug. Go get ’em!
Well said, George. Keep on fighting, Congressman Collins.
