Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert is an outspoken statesman who not only rails against the policies of the Obama administration, but fights his own party when establishment Republicans take aim at such Constitutional Conservative colleagues like Senator Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Gohmert is also very outspoken when members of the Republican establishment like Speaker of The House John Boehner and Arizona Senator John McCain go against the will of the American people and principles of The Constitution.
With the 2014 elections on the horizon, Congressman Gohmert has created GOH Conservative PAC- a political action committee (PAC) with the mission of protecting and defending candidates from the mainstream establishment Republican Party.
“That’s been a problem, we’ve seen in some races, where we’ve had leadership come and play and there was no counterbalance. So I’m going to do something about it," Gohmert said.
“There's a war against the tea party. There's a war against conservatives, we’re told. If somebody declares war on me I'm not just going to lie down and take it. I'm going to fight,” Gohmert added. ”You’ve got to have money to fight opposition. The leaders in the party raise money so that [makes congressmen] feel they have to stay close to them. If we raise money on our own we can take a stand.”
Gohmert said he was inspired by the Senate Conservatives Fund, started by former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who now heads the Heritage Foundation.
Says Gohmert, "GOH Conservative PAC is recruiting and empowering Members of Congress and candidates who will join with me to fight for conservative principles. I have some big ideas and some very specific policy goals, that will greatly help in getting America back on the right path to peace through strength, and prosperity through decent enterprise."
Some of GOH Conservative PAC's Agenda Items
• Re-establish National Security and Defense Standards America's national security and national defense apparatus has been seriously compromised, at home and abroad, by crippling political correctness and partisan agendas that must be ended at once.
• Balance the Budget Congress must cut spending. Zero Base-Line Budgets and No Debt Ceiling Raises are a good start. GOH PAC supports cutting spending, passage of a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget, without raising taxes.
• Repeal Obamacare The Obamacare health care takeover is set to destroy American medicine and bankrupt our country. It must be repealed.
• Secure the Borders A nation that cannot control its borders is out of control. GOH PAC opposes all forms of amnesty for illegal immigration, just as we fully embrace new Americans who adopt citizenship of our nation legally.
• Defend the 1st, 2nd and 10th Amendments These Amendments fundamentally protect our liberty, and are under relentless assault by Washington.
• Stop Corporate Welfare and Bailouts Preferential corporate treatment and fiscal bailouts force taxpayers to reward failure and punish success. They destroy fair market competition that is the lifeblood of our free enterprise system.
• Protect Human Life Human life is an unalienable right from God, infinitely precious, the protection of which is guaranteed to all persons in principle, according to our Declaration of Independence and Constitution — from conception to natural death. On this there must be no compromise.
