    David vs. Goliath

    Because I couldn't have said it better myself, I wanted to share with you an e-mail that I received from State Representative Tom McMillin a couple of hours ago.

    Fellow Conservatives,

    I've worked with Dave Agema as a State Legislator and I'd like to share with you some of my observations from the past three and a half years.

    Dave has consistently been identified as one of the most rock-solid conservatives in the Michigan House of Representatives.  In fact, during the 95th Legislature (2009-2010), Dave worked closely with Justin Amash and me to advance constitutionally conservative policies.  At a recent Kent GOP County Convention, Amash remarked, "Agema equals Conservative."

    As usual, I could not agree more with Congressman Amash.  And I couldn't be prouder to support Dave Agema to replace Saul Anuzis as National Committeeman.

    Saul's recent email claimed that he wasn't a lobbyist or a political consultant.  To me, that sounds like someone saying, "It depends on what the meaning of is, is."

    Here is how Anuzis' website describes his role in National Popular Vote:

    "We assisted in building their national team of consultants. We regularly interface with their state lobbyist in over 40 states and provide strategic and politic advise on implementation of various grass tops and grassroots efforts nationally."  [s.i.c.]

    Click here to see a letter Saul sent to Michigan Republicans in support of National Popular Vote in 2010.  Saul is essentially the Super-Lobbyist for NPV that helped build their national team of consultants and interface with their lobbyists in 40 states!

    I can't tell you how upsetting this is to me.  The NPV scheme rewards states who turn a blind eye toward voter fraud - under NPV, a fraudulent vote in California, say along the border of Mexico, actually cancels out my vote!  And of course, it undermines the Electoral College.  Both our Michigan State Committee and the national committee (RNC) felt it was so important to try to stop this Soros-backed (Anuzis-led) assault on one of the fundamental structures in our republic, that they both voted against it - by well over 95% ... although Saul voted for his money-backed scheme.  Well, now is the time to hold Saul accountable for his vote and actions and especially for his unethical (and un-Republican) willingness to put money above principle - something no Republican should tolerate.

    This, of course, raises the question of whether we want someone who is working as a paid lobbyist/consultant for George Soros (and his pet projects) representing us on the RNC, or whether that representation is better provided by someone who is truly conservative, will never use his position to make money and is intent on returning the Republican Party to its liberty-minded, rule-of-law, conservative roots.

    I strongly believe that Dave Agema is the right direction for our party, and hope that other conservatives across the state will agree.  This is a fundamental decision that our party is making.

    Last week in Indiana, we saw what the Republican grassroots can do to leaders who are disconnected and side with liberal causes.

    This week, Michigan will have a similar decision.  Are we going to support Rep. Dave Agema, a principled conservative leader, or Saul Anuzis, someone who has and is using his position to make big money helping a Soros-funded scheme to ... well, to basically put in place a system (NPV) that would greatly improve Democrat chances for victories in the future - thanks to rewarding voter fraud and attacking the Electoral College?

    Some have said this is an impossible race to win.  Saul has the support of the Governor, the Attorney General, and is the leader of the Establishment.  He is the Goliath of the Michigan Republican Party.

    I have been involved in many convention races over the past couple of decades and I can assure you that Dave has a very good chance to win.  But it isn't going to be easy.

    This may indeed be a race of David vs. Goliath.

    I am voting for my trusted friend, David Agema and I hope you will too.


    Representative Tom McMillin
    Oakland County

    P.S.:  If you still have questions about Saul's role with NPV, then please click here to see the letter Saul wrote to the Michigan Republican State Committee and County Chairs after being elected to serve out the remainder of Keith Butler's unexpired term.
