“We had rabbits when we needed tigers.” — Ronald Reagan writing in his diary of congressional Republicans
LLPH Endorsed Tavish Kelly (R-MS 04 CAND)
LLPH is honored to endorse a great, young conservative Tavish Kelly for Congress! Only 24 years old, Tavish Kelly has a deep wealth of knowledge about the importance of liberty and freedom that he will take with him to the 114th Congress! He is challenging RINO Rep. Steve Palazzo.
Rep. Palazzo can’t seem to make up his mind. One day he opposes wasteful spending, the next day…he’s all for it. He voted for some Sandy funding, against some Sandy funding. He voted for debt ceiling increases and continuing resolutions…and then voted against some of them. He voted against several spending cuts, against the Amash NSA limitation amendment, in favor of CISPA, supported the GOP establishment’s Farm Bill. He holds a 66% (D) currently on LLPH’s scorecard, yet he represents a district that voted Republican in 2012: 68-31%. WE CAN DO BETTER!
Tavish Kelly is ready to go to congress and fight for our values:
On the Federal Reserve:
Nearly half of the United States economy (and much of the world’s) consists of the dollar. Our money is arguably the most important component of our free market system. And yet, it is only part that we completely isolate from competition. The Federal Reserve allows a small group of economists to control the entire marketplace – at least until it corrects itself.
We have seen these market corrections have devastating effects in the Great Depression, the Stagflation of the 1970s, and most recently with the Great Recession following the housing crisis of 2007. Throughout these panics, the Federal Reserve has continued to inflate away the value of the dollar to no effect, other than increasing cost of living for those at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.
This year is the 100th birthday of the Federal Reserve since its creation in 1913. It is time for America to take a closer look at the Federal Reserve’s policies, and ask ourselves whether we want to leave our money in hands of unelected “experts” or let free market be truly free.
On 2nd Amendment:
Like many Mississippians, Tavish Kelly has used firearms for both sport and self-defense his entire life, and today he helps spread his passion through Kelly Firearms, a retailer and manufacturer of guns and ammunition in Picayune.
While in Congress, Tavish will actively work to repeal unconstitutional laws such as the National Firearms Act, Gun Control Act, and Brady Act, as well as prevent further incursions on the right to self-defense.
On the Patriot Act (a very important issue in the 114th Congress):
Despite its name, the PATRIOT Act does little more than circumvent the Constitution to effectively repeal the 4th Amendment. The United States of America exist to protect the freedoms of their citizens, and it is the antithesis of patriotism to sacrifice those freedoms for a distant and unreliable promise of security. Tavish will fight to repeal this vehicle of big government and vote down any reauthorization attempts when it sunsets in 2015.
Tavish Kelly is awesome on so many more issues, but here is some great information about Tavish:
Tavish has participated in and led multiple chapters of the Young Americans for Liberty, a constitutionally conservative student activist organization, at multiple universities throughout the country.
During the summer of 2013, Tavish served as an intern in the office of Representative Thomas Massie (KY-04), where he assisted the legislative staff, guided visitors around the Capitol, and helped Rep. Massie’s constituents.
Tavish Kelly would be a strong TIGER Republican in Congress and would fight side-by-side with LLPH-endorsed allies like Thomas Massie and Justin Amash. We need Tavish Kelly in Congress and we will work hard to elect him in 2014!

Let’s win in 2014!
