Last minute blitzing being planned for the Hoogendyk campaign, as he faces down one of the least conservative members of the Republican congressional delegation from Michigan.
Saturday the 4th, be looking out for a motivated team participating in a door to door blitz. In fact, be a part of that blitz and hang out with a great group of patriots having fun and actually doing something. Questions? Contact Steve.
In the meanwhile, its worth taking a look at these:
Tapayer Party Mel Valkner sends THIS out today to email boxes:
"Re-election goes to those who have best served their constituents. That is not the case with Rep. Fred Upton. Like President Obama, he is out of touch.
Here are ten reasons Fred Upton deserves to lose to Jack Hoogendyk in the Republican Primary August 7th:
Article II, Section 10 of the Michigan Constitution says, "No person shall be elected to office as representative in the United States House of Representatives more than three times during any twelve year period. Upton has been elected 13 straight times.
Last election he promoted a "Five-Point Jobs Plan" none of which have been implemented.
When he came to office the National Debt was $3.5 trillion, now it is nearly $16 trillion despite having a Republican President and Congress 50% of the time.
Upton voted for the $1 trillion TARP bailout, much of it going to big banks.
Upton voted to outlaw the ordinary incandescent light bulb.
Upton voted for "Cash for Clunkers," a wasteful spending bill that disastrously destroyed thousands of good used cars driving up prices by 25%.
Upton voted for NAFTA causing the loss of 400,000 high-paying Michigan jobs.
Upton voted for the federal education program "No Child Left Behind" destroying local authority of public schools.
Upton for the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit, an unfunded federal healthcare plan leading to Obamacare.
Upton has lied about Jack Hoogendyk - so much for being a "nice guy." At least 10 negative mailers have been sent by Upton about Hoogendyk, none of which are true and full of distortions. Why trust someone who will not tell the truth, simply to win an election?
Oh sure, he did a little good here and there but, overall, the harm he and his cohorts have inflicted will cost our children and grandchildren trillions of dollars over their lifetimes.
In spite of all the above, Kalamazoo County Republican leaders including Margaret O'Brien and Tonya Schuitmaker are supporting Upton, contrary to their most vocal supporters that stood behind them in their last election - all for the sake of the "establishment."
Ultimately you decide who will represent every district in the U.S. Congress. Everyone knows we can't keep going the way we are - so why would vote again for the same incumbents, in this case Fred Upton?
Isn't it time to vote for the other guy and let him have a try to get us out of this mess?
