We all know the names of the GOP establishment RINOs whom we love to hate; John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell in the Senate, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Pete King in the House.
They and others are the ones pushing the Republican Party to embrace amnesty, they are the ones who wouldn’t support defunding Obamacare, they are the ones attacking Ted Cruz, and they are the ones whom we conservatives and Tea Party patriots are trying to oust in the 2014 primaries.
But as badly as we want to send these establishment RINO hacks packing it will not, it cannot happen unless each and every last one of you is willing to step up and take part in the effort to unseat the GOP establishment in each and every race.
One of those races involves the new fresh young face of the GOP establishment, Illinois congressman Adam Kinzinger and his genuine Tea Party opponent David Hale.
Kinzinger has been called a young John McCain by nationally syndicated talk show host and best selling author Mark Levin and for good reason.
Like McCain Kinzinger whole heartedly supported the US military getting entangled in the Syrian terrorist on terrorist civil war.
Like McCain Adam Kinzinger has repeatedly spoken ill of Senator Ted Cruz, the effort to defund Obamacare and the subsequent partial government shutdown.
Whereas John McCain infamously called the Tea Party “Hobbits” Adam Kinzinger used an appearance on ABC’s This Week to attack Heritage Action, Club For Growth, and FreedomWorks in one breath.
Time and again when a big vote has come up in the House from the debt limit, to the fiscal cliff “crap sandwich”, to the terrible deal that ended the partial government shutdown Adam Kinzinger has voted the way Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor wanted him and the rest of the establishment RINOs to vote.
Because of his record of attacking conservatives like Ted Cruz and former congressman Don Manzullo and his history of attacking conservative organizations(in 2012 Kinzinger attacked Illinois Conservatives and its President Zach Oltmanns) not to mention his support for bombing Syria Adam Kinzinger has drawn a primary challenge from Rockford Tea Party leader David Hale.
This congressional race between Adam Kinzinger and David Hale is a textbook example of the Conservative/Tea Party base rebelling against the GOP establishment and it is a race everyone in the nation should pay attention to(and help out).
With a campaign war chest of over half a million dollars and a ton of money at his disposal in the form of PAC’s affiliated with Boehner and Cantor coupled with money from big corporations that he helps scratch the backs of(think crony capitalism and corporate Republicanism) Adam Kinzinger has an air about him of invincibility.
Nothing would please me more than to see the grassroots toss a monkey wrench into the dreams and ambitions of Adam Kinzinger.
But that can’t happen unless you are willing to send a donation David Hale’s way, or walk precincts and knock on doors, or do something else to sway voters in Illinois’ 16th congressional district(which is a very big and rather rural chunk of Northern Illinois) to support David Hale.
It doesn’t take anything big to unseat an incumbent establishment candidate just tens of thousands of people doing the small things; send Hale your checks not the RNC, write letters to the editors, don’t sit around an complain to the walls call into your local radio station and promote David.
Don’t wait for Heritage, FreedomWorks, or Club For Growth to jump into this race before you get involved, be involved at the grassroots level so that those and other conservative and Tea Party groups and organizations have no choice but to join in because they want to be a part of a monumental victory where you helped a true advocate of conservative and Tea Party principles defeat a Boehner yes man.
This race is truly a David versus Goliath(aka Adam Kinzinger) affair and it can have the same result as the Biblical story but only if your willing to hand David Hale a figurative stone.
