Press release from the Tennessee Campaign for Liberty; June 26, 2013:
Smyrna, TN – The TN Campaign for Liberty will be holding a protest outside of Senator Lamar Alexander’s event “Salute to the GOP Chairmen” at the Smyrna Air Center on July 20th, 2013. The protest will last from 3:30 until 5pm just outside of the venue. The protest will focus on Senator Lamar Alexander’s big-government and unconstitutional voting record.
A recent study by Congressional Quarterly shows that Senator Alexander voted with President Obama 62% of the time, more often than any other Republican Senator in the South.
“We think that his record is unacceptable and that he should’ve voted with the Constitution. He is tone deaf to the values of Tennesseans and he should change his ways” said Matt Collins a coordinator with the TN Campaign for Liberty. “Voting for more spending, more debt, a reduction in civil liberties, the bailouts, Obama’s Sotomayor Supreme Court confirmation, TARP, funding the IMF, funding the UN, pushing the Internet sales tax, voting for Obama’s Cash-for-Clunkers, confirming Ben Bernanke to Chair the Federal Reserve, refusing to audit the Federal Reserve, giving away our tax dollars to foreign governments who hate us, voting to expand the EPA, and voting to expand the FDA, are just some of the reasons that we are protesting Mr. Alexander’s big-government voting record.”
