Rep. Louie Gohmert is a fighter. He voted against Speaker Boehner at the beginning of this congress, and has been stripped of all his rankings and possible chairmanships. But he knows what he is fighting for. Rep. Gohmert is fighting for the country and future generations. He often jokes about how he has been denied all chairman positions except the Prayer Caucus chairmanship. It’s kind of sad that conservatives cannot be given chairmanships unless they act like liberals.
Rep. Gohmert recently set up GOH PAC to help more conservatives get to congress. Indeed, he would be a strong leader along with Rep. Thomas Massie (another liberty commander) in helping to train new representatives to maintain their conservative principles and fight the RINO establishment.
Rep. Gohmert has voted against numerous debt ceiling increases (all of them in the 113th congress), fought the Ryan-Murray Budget, bloated omnibus bills, Farm bills, and foreign aid to places like Pakistan and Ukraine. He opposed the NSA spying and voted against CISPA. And Rep. Gohmert has led at the front against amnesty and for the rule of law first when dealing with immigration issues. Rep. Gohmert is seen frequently on the floor defending conservative principles, and he has been outspoken in criticizing Senator McCain’s eagerness to go into Syria and help the rebels. Gohmert has also used his floor speeches to defend conservative leaders like Rep. Justin Amash or Governor Sarah Palin from the endless attacks by the liberal media. And Rep. Gohmert does not mince words when criticizing leadership of both parties. Rep. Gohmert was at the front in fighting to defund Obamacare and he is not a wishy-washy politician but a straight-shooter who also helps in leading the Liberty Caucus.
To be named and continue to hold the title of a Liberty Commander, the representative has to maintain above a 70% average in a full congress. LLPH is honored to name Rep. Louie Gohmert as a Liberty Commander in our Liberty Congress Team and also re-endorse him for the 2014 midterm elections.
