But finally there is a sign of hope. Louie Gohmert, the Congressional Representative from the 1st District of Texas, a former Army officer, Texas Judge and a true fiscal hawk, has announced he is starting the GOH Conservative PAC, a political action body which has the mission of helping true Conservative candidates win elections to Congress. Congressman Gohmert is a straight shooting Texan by birth from Tyler who has grown increasingly frustrated with the Speaker and his entourage and has decided the time is right for action. He is starting a fund raising arm to develop a war chest to be used in ultimately changing the leadership by replacing those who are RINOs with Conservatives that their constituents can trust and believe. He sees it as being time to do what each candidate promises in their election campaign and not conveniently forget about those promises once they become immersed in Washington. He is developing a vetting process for candidates asking for help to insure that only those who are serious about returning government control to the people are supported.
His model is the Senate Conservative Fund which was started by former Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) which was very successful in winning Senate seats to the Conservative side of the party. Some of DeMint's biggest wins were Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and even Marco Rubio. While Rubio is really the only disappointment in the group, there might be signs that he has seen the light and besides, he is certainly much better than Charlie Crist, the Republican turned Independent turned liberal Democrat and a man who had the support of Senator John Cornyn, the pseudo-conservative from Texas who himself has a major primary challenge this year. Can you imagine how much worse things could be in the Senate if DeMint hadn't started the SCF which is now a force to be reckoned with. Ted Cruz and the others have the RINOs tied in knots as they can no longer hide the truth from the public. And for those of you who don't know it, DeMint is now doing a bang up job as the head of the Heritage Foundation which is a thorn in the side of liberal ideology everywhere.
So if Louie Gohmert is even close to the level of success thus far achieved by SCF, the House will start to get a backbone that can win those important votes when they come up and Boehner and his gang will go down in the books as the weakest leadership in modern House history. I hope Conservatives will support Congressman Gohmert's new group and give it a grand welcome on the political scene, Tea Party style.
Thanks Congressman Gohmert and I wish you well. I know that many patriotic Americans will rise to the occasion with you and do what we must to return America to fiscal soundness in the best traditions of our democratic republican form of government. So stand up Conservatives and keep the resolve we need to do this thing. America is worth it and we won't let her go down in squalor.
God bless you and God bless America.
