Al.com published an article by George Talbot on congressional candidate Quin Hillyer’s decision to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge: “Republican Quin Hillyer signs no-tax pledge in AL01 congressional race”
“Hillyer said he signed the pledge June 7 in Mobile, witnessed by Michael Mastro, a local anti-tax advocate. He vowed that, if elected, he would fight tax hikes and cut federal spending.
‘I understand how Washington works, the problem is the people we send up there do not,’ Hillyer said. ‘There is a spending problem that needs to be addressed.’
Americans for Tax Reform said the pledge has been offered to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, 39 U.S. Senators and 219 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the pledge, along with 14 governors and 1,200 state legislators.”
In an Op-Ed by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano in Fox News, he points out the unconstitutional behavior of the government and the slippery slope that will take away American freedom: “Liberty in shambles”
“Now we know that the feds have seized the telephone records of more than 100 million Americans and the email and texting records of nearly everyone in the U.S. for a few years.
They have obtained this under the laws that permit them to do so. These laws — just like the ones that let British soldiers write their own search warrants — were validly enacted, but they are profoundly unconstitutional.”
