Freedom Caucus won't back GOP candidates

Personally I Belong to the Trump Party

  • Written before the invention of political parties our Constitution is way out of date. Voters are forced to choose between two parties that do not represent them and are bought and paid for by billions in Wall Street special interest cash.
  • In November I will not vote for my open borders GOP Congressman, and I will not vote for the Leftist Democrat. So I will leave the office blank and refuse to vote.

(Politico)  -  House Republicans already struggling to protect their historic majority this fall are confronting a multimillion-dollar shortfall in their campaign budget — driven partly by Freedom Caucus members and other hard-line conservatives who are boycotting the GOP’s campaign arm.

A bloc of conservatives is refusing to transfer cash to the National Republican Congressional Committee, convinced the committee is favoring moderate candidates over hard-line conservatives. Dozens of other Republican lawmakers also haven’t paid their expected party “dues,” including several in tough primaries or general election races who figure they need the money for themselves.

Several GOP sources told Politico that 3 in 10 members of the House Republican Conference are delinquent on their dues. And multiple senior Republicans said the shortfall exceeds $10 million.

“There’s a group of us who associate the NRCC with the establishment wing of the party,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), who added that he has a “principled objection to paying dues to the NRCC.” 

Open Borders Conservatives
I am a member of the Trump Party because just about every faction
of the "Conservative" GOP is very happy with wide, wide open borders.
The entire GOP wants endless legal and illegal cheap labor and the
exporting of middle class jobs with free trade agreements.

The Freedom Caucus member noted that a former top NRCC staffer helped outside groups unseat his friend, Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, in a Republican primary last month, and said the committee is partly to blame.

While the NRCC has about $2.5 million more cash on hand than the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, House Democrats outraised Republicans by more than $11 million combined in July and August.

A big chunk of the disparity is attributable to members not paying dues, several Republican sources said.

The NRCC would not comment on the dues figures provided to Politico. It downplayed the conservative boycott, saying in a statement that “we are always very grateful to our Conference for their commitment to ensuring we maintain and grow our historic Republican House majority.”

But the problem appears to be serious enough that GOP leaders have pleaded with members several times in recent weeks to pony up. On a conference call with dozens of members the last week of August, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and NRCC Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) urged lawmakers to donate. Walden said Republicans were getting outraised by Democrats in both big and small donations, and Ryan said he was disappointed in members who hadn’t paid their dues, encouraging them to work as a team.

Free elections are an illusion
Special interest groups literally spend billions to buy members of Congress as their personal servants. The only choice you have on election day is which of the bought and paid for candidates to vote for.

Free Elections in Japan
But Not in The U.S.
In Japan there are seven political parties in their House of Representatives.
Free multi-party elections are standard all over the free world from Israel to Argentina to Italy to Brazil and Australia. It is long overdue to open up the American system to truly free elections where all factions of the people are represented, not just Wall Street Oligarchs.
