Fair Tax

All posts tagged Fair Tax

I will post my thoughts on Texas here. If I have a specific candidate I’m pretty sure of I will make a separate post on them as I did for Dr. Pam Barlow CD 13.

The Primary will be March 4, 2014 (runoff May 27, 2014) and the General will be November 4, 2014. I approve of voting out the incumbents whenever a good solid conservative is available. Read More. Freedom Works is a good place to check their records.

CD1 Louie Gohmert R the incumbent has been there since 2004. He is one of the few I like and there isn’t anyone running that I know of who I would support over him.

CD2 Ted Poe R Since 2004. Seems pretty good and no one running that I have found.

CD3 Sam Johnson R Since 1991. Looks like his challengers are Cecil Ince L don’t really know anything much about him so if you do please post it in the comments section. Josh Loveless I again if you have more info post it in the comments.

CD4 Ralph M. Hall R Since 1980 (started as a Democrat, switched to Republican in 2004), been there a long time. Tony Arterburn Jr. R Supports The Fair Tax, I like what I read. Let me know what you think. Lou Gigliotti R Suppotys The Fair Tax.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone. They state “South Dakota is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a major pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tim Johnson is retiring. President Obama lost the state in 2012 so it is important that Republicans nominate a strong conservative. NOTE: SCF will not support former governor MIke Rounds because his record is too liberal.

If Mike Rounds is too liberal for SCF, I say he is too liberal for thee people of South Dakota.

The other candidates listed are Annette Bosworth R I like what I read, she also supports term limits and the Fair Tax, Larry Rhoden R Seems OK on the major issues, and Stace Nelson R Everything sounds good and he supports Term Limits.

Based on what I read the two best options would be either Annette Bosworth or Stace Nelson.

If you have any additional information please let me know from the website.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone. They state “Incumbent Republican Lindsey Graham is up for re-election. South Carolina is a bright red state so the winner of the GOP primary will likely win the seat.

Many/most conservatives agree that Lindsey Graham needs to be defeated. I was reading an article on Brietbart the other day that put forth the theory  that several primary challengers could keep the incumbent below the 50% mark, forcing a run off. That way people can get behind the challenger to defeat Graham in the primary. The idea has some merit. The only chance is in the primary and it will take people getting out and voting in the primary.

The candidates listed are Bill Connor R The website didn’t go into issues so I don’t know where he actually stands, Lee Bright R He seems to be good on the constitution, 2nd amendment, pro life and does mention The Fair Tax, Nancy Mace R Pro life, good statement on 2nd amendment, didn’t mention the Fair Tax, Richard Cash R I liked everything I read, only problem was he didn’t mention taxes.

Bottom line is any of the above four would be a huge improvement. If anyone has additional information please let me know through the website.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone. They do say “Incumbent Republican Pat Roberts is up for re-election. Roberts currently has no Republican challengers. Kansas is a bright red state so the winner of the GOP primary will likely win the seat.

Note: SCF will not endorse Pat Roberts because we have a policy against endorsing incumbents. SCF seeks to identify and elect new leaders to the U.S. Senate.”

They do list a candidate on their list Milton Wolf. I like the fact that he seems to support The Fair Tax. He is a doctor and opposes ObamaCare, another plus. I keep getting the thought that most of the established politicians need a strong Primary challenge. Even if they win the Primary, maybe it will be a wake up call for them. Maybe they will start to understand that the American People are fed up.

The Senate Conservatives Fund has not endorsed anyone so far. They state “Iowa is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tom Harkin is retiring and a strong conservative can win this open seat. President Obama only narrowly won Iowa in 2012 with 52% of the vote.”

The candidates running for the seat are David Young R , Joni Ernst R , Matt Whitaker R , Sam Clovis R Supports The Fair Tax. I think I would opt for Sam Clovis simply becasue he supports The Fair Tax.

Saxby Chambliss is retiring in 2014. The Senate Conservatives Fund has not made an endorsement. They state “Incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss is retiring. Georgia is a bright red state so the winner of the GOP primary will likely win this open seat.”

The candidates running are David Perdue Can’t tell much about him from the website, Derrick Grayson I really like his stand on taxes as well as everything else I read. He supports The Fair TaxEugene Chin Yu I trust what Derrick Grayson says more, Jack Kingston has been pretty good in Congress but hes has been there for awhile, Karen Handel not as good on taxes as I would like. Stopped short of endorsing The Fair Tax., Paul Broun has been very good in Congress. and Phil Gingrey doesn’t mention taxes on the website and he is an unknown to me.

Based on what I could read on their websites, I’m leaning towards either Derrick Grayson or Paul Broun. Whoever wins the primary should be the next Senator.

While The Senate Conservatives Fund has not made an endorsement they say “Colorado is on our 2014 Priority List because it presents conservatives with a potential pick-up opportunity. Incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Udall has an extremely liberal voting record and is running for re-election in a state that could be competitive for Republicans.”

There are at this point two candidates running. I don’t know either of them so I can’t endorse them. They are Owen Hill and Ken Buck. From looking at the websites, I noticed Owen Hill gave more insight into where he stood on many issues. I wish he would have stated that he supported The Fair Tax which would have gotten my endorsement.
