When our current Congressman was first elected in 1996, the Republican Party Platform repeated similar promises made when Ronald Reagan campaigned for President back in 1980:
As a first step in reforming government, we support elimination of the Departments of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development, Education, and Energy, and the elimination, defunding or privatization of agencies which are obsolete, redundant, of limited value, or too regional in focus. Examples of agencies we seek to defund or to privatize are the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and the Legal Services Corporation.
These are appropriate promises to make:
They are constitutional promises to make, because the Constitution creates a government of enumerated powers, and these bureaucracies are not within the Constitutional limits of power (click here for more details)
They are libertarian promises to make, because these bureaucracies infringe on our liberties
They are now broken promises
Republicans have proven themselves unworthy of our trust. Despite having complete control over Congress and the White House, Republicans have not only failed to abolish these wasteful and unconstitutional agencies, they have increased funding for them.
Libertarians would actually keep the promises made by Ronald Reagan in the 1980's and Republicans in 1996.
They Promise Us Freedom and Give Us Tyranny
Republicans, just as much as Democrats, have vastly expanded federal tyranny. During political campaigns, they talk about smaller government and "fiscal responsibility." Once elected, these same Republicans give us bailouts and unfunded Medicare liabilities.They deserve to be turned out of office for violating the promises they made, both in their platform and in their oath of office.
|Every single person who plotted or participated in the original "Boston Tea Party" would vote for Kevin Craig if they were voting in Southwest Missouri in 2010.
We're talking about men like Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, and other members of the "Sons of Liberty."
And these great Americans would agree that the modern "Tea Party Movement" should endorse Kevin Craig rather than Billy Long.
|How did the "Tea Party Patriots" of Branson, MO, decide to endorse Billy Long and Roy Blunt?
Were there public debates?
If you are:
- A Real American
- A Real Christian
- A Real Republican
then you have a moral obligation to

rather than Billy Long.
- Voting is a moral issue.
- Not like choosing between chocolate and vanilla
- Voters have moral duties:

- From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.
Kevin Craig's campaign website is possibly the largest candidate website on the Internet. It addresses nearly every conceivable political and social issue from an explicitly Biblical Worldview perspective.
Politics is a Tug-of-War
Voters should pick the candidate who can pull the rope in the direction of Free-Market Capitalism with the most passion and vigor. Liberty and Capitalism depend on a strong foundation of Christian Morality.
It appears that Billy Long refuses to debate his conservative opponents in the race for Missouri's 7th Congressional Seat. If he cannot debate conservatives, how can he defeat the liberals? Listen to my interview on National Public Radio:

The webpage is here. It says:
KSMU made requests to the Republican candidate, Billy Long, over the course of a week.
On Friday morning, a spokesperson for Long, Royce Redding, said if KSMU provided the questions we would ask Long in advance, there was a chance we might be able to interview him.
Redding was informed that KSMU does not submit questions prior to any interview. Long did not get back to us by the news deadline.
This is not a candidate who will battle socialism and defend capitalism. You're reading the website of the candidate who has and who will.
