Support Holly Rehder

As Conservatives, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, we ask those we support in the Missouri Legislature to make their votes based on principle and what is best for the long term health of the state.

We ask them to take that stand in the face of Party backlash, Union backlash, or other Special Interest backlash.

In the 148th district, we have a pillar of self-governance who HAS taken that principled stand for which we ask.

In two of the major votes of the year, Holly Rehder stood by her principles and voted against the party line.  She voted against the MoDOT Sales Tax Increase and she voted against the Boeing Bribe.

But, where she has really stood by principle and incurred the wrath of the Special Interests is in her push to pass the Paycheck Protection Act… …requiring unions to gain the annual approval of their members before deducting dues from their paychecks.

I know; giving the power back to the individual; crazy, right?!?! (sarcasm)

As expected, the union special interests are lining up against her and asking their members to cross the line from the Democrat voter roles and cast a vote against Holly in the Republican Primary Election.  See the attached letter send to union members.

Tea Party does not endorse candidates, so I would like to make this personal request to all of you even though I know you are 100% busy.  If you live in the 148th district, please Please PLEASE go out and vote for Holly on August 5th.  For the rest of us, if you have any Time, Talent or Treasure you can send Holly’s way, you would be doing a service to all Missourians in helping keep this pillar of self-governance in the halls of the House in Jefferson City.

See the attached file from Union Leaders admonishing their members to momentarily toss aside their Democrat principles and vote in the Republican Primary…

Rehder – Union Letter – 20140805

Thank you!

Legislative Plunder

By Janet Boston

In the Federalist Papers Plunder is explained very clearly. It is taking from one person to give to another. Our never ending social programs are a perfect example of Plunder. The government has seen fit to take from the working taxpayer to give to the non-working disadvantaged individual and create more government agencies. This is not the vision our Founders had intended for this nation. We used to take care of our citizens through community, charity, churches, Salvation Army food pantries etc.

We should not be appropriating monies from working taxpayers to support any special interest. The programs are financially overwhelming and the agencies are too many to number. It is time to take a moment to realize what burden the working class is being asked to support.(NSA, EPA, DNR, FDA, OSHA, Homeland Security, FBI, IRS, Planned Parenthood, illegal immigrants placing burdePlunder_20copy_400w[1]ns on all our facilities, aid to victims of crime, disabled programs, food stamps (SNAP), unemployment, housing, health care, welfare, utilities, Obama phones, drug programs, busing/taxis children to schools, computers for all students, free education to foreign students while raising our own children’s tuition. The list goes on. No one checks on outcomes of most of the programs. We need to audit and cut our losses.

Citizens are now we are having to protect themselves against NSA, EPA, DNR, Homeland Security and IRS. Government is too big and becoming too intrusive. We are supposed to be living in a free society not direct our lives to the plow of financial support of social programs. We are to lift people up not make dependent children out of them. Our country has become an entitlement society by the hand of legislators. When are we going to put a time limit on all subsidies?

Stop Legislating the Plunder!
