Any candidate for Speaker of the House or any other leadership position must have:
The ability to articulate free market economic principles and why we must grow our economy.
A willingness to stand and fight for the Tea Party Patriots’ core principles of personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt free future with the same determination that President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have fought for their principles.
The ability to build coalitions of Republican votes to pass fiscally responsible legislation.
The ability to understand the limited and restrained role of the federal government as outlined in the Constitution and a demonstrated willingness to stand by that time-tested principle.
The willingness to allow Conservatives a seat at the table by returning to regular order and allowing amendments through the committee process as well as allowing Conservatives to hold important positions (including chairmanships) on key House committees.
Your efforts were instrumental in getting John Boehner to step down. Now you can make an impact on what the new House leadership will look like. Call today!
