Dear Mindy,

Last week the GOP establishment purged four principled conservatives from their committee assignments.

And at a closed door caucus meeting on Capitol Hill, Speaker Boehner reportedly warned members that leadership is watching their "voting patterns."

It appears the GOP establishment is going all-out to maintain their iron grip on the Republican Party.

You and I can't allow establishment Republicans to punish conservatives for voting their values.

That's why it's vital you sign the petition to House Speaker John Boehner and House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan.

The petition urges John Boehner and Paul Ryan to stop purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments, and to reinstate the four already purged from their positions.

You see, according to news reports, two of the congressmen were purged from the Budget Committee for voting for a five-year balanced budget plan - instead of Paul Ryan's budget which balanced in twenty-eight years.

Apparently, it seems that not toeing the establishment line is grounds for purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments.

Mindy, our country is $16 trillion in debt, the "official" unemployment rate is just under 8%, and assaults on our liberties continue on a daily basis.

It's time for Republicans to get serious for a change.

It's time for my colleagues to stop insulting American's intelligence with tired talking points and phony "solutions."

Instead of caving on their no tax pledge with phony solutions like the $800 BILLION tax hike put forth by leadership in the house, Republicans should be leading the charge for lower taxes and smaller government.

But I'm afraid, for that to happen, you and I are going to have to force my colleagues to recognize you will not tolerate Republicans being indistinguishable from Democrats.

And I believe one sure way to do that is for you and I to let the GOP establishment know constitutional conservatives won't tolerate them purging fiscal conservatives from their committee assignments.

So please, sign the petition to House Speaker John Boehner and Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan IMMEDIATELY.

And along with your signed petition, I hope you'll agree to make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 - or whatever you can afford - to RAND PAC right away.

Your generous contribution will help me mobilize millions of grassroots conservatives to turn up the heat on the GOP establishment to stop purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments.

Even if it's just $20 or $10, any amount you can contribute will be put to immediate use in this critical fight.

You and I must not sit back and allow the GOP establishment to maintain its iron grip on our party.

Sign the petition to House Speaker John Boehner and Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan TODAY.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. Last week the GOP establishment purged four principled conservatives from their committee assignments.

And according to news reports, two of the congressmen were purged from the Budget Committee for voting for a budget that balanced in five years - instead of the establishment's budget which balanced in twenty-eight years.

That's why it's vital you help stop the conservative purge by signing the petition to House Speaker John Boehner and House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan.

And if at all possible, please include a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 - or whatever you can afford - to help with this fight.

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
