CFTR: NSA Wire Taps, IRS Targeting, What’s Next?

New Conservative Vote Rating System will Score
Fidelity to Constitution, Protecting Americans' Liberty


July 29, 2013

Citizens for the Republic today announced that following the defeat of the Amash Amendment, that would shut down funding the National Security Agency that compiled data on law abiding citizens, that it will compile the authentic system for scoring conservative Congressional votes.

"The vote on the Amash Amendment is a clear indicator of what Members of Congress believe about liberty and protecting the right of American citizens even if it is against its own government. This will be one of the key votes scored in the new rating system," said CFTR Director Diana Banister.

"This new scoring system will be truly independent. It will not be influenced by lobbying interests or the media. It will be scored only influenced on whether the vote is faithful to the Constitution and whether or not it holds true to conservative principles.

"What passes for 'conservative' principles today is astonishing. All of the Republicans who voted 'No' on the Amash amendment should be ashamed of themselves. The correct vote was obvious, yet establishment Republicans caved."

The new scoring system will begin being compiled immediately and will be made available prior to the next congressional election.

QUIN HILLYER FOR CONGRESS

Alabama Conservative Needed in Congress


June 5, 2013

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Citizens for the Republic today endorsed Quin Hillyer for Congress in Alabama’s First Congressional district in a special election to replace Rep. Jo Bonner, who is resigning in August.

"As a journalist and during his time on Capitol Hill, Quin Hillyer developed a reputation of honesty and integrity—qualities that are missing from the current Congress," said Citizens for the Republic Director Diana Banister.

Hillyer is a graduate of Georgetown University. His journalism career includes positions with The New Orleans Times-Picayune, The Mobile Register, The Arkansas Democrat Gazette, The American Spectator, The Washington Examiner and The Washington Times.

Early in his career, Hillyer served as press secretary to Rep. Bob Livingston of Louisiana.

"Quin has covered Congress and Washington inside and out. He knows how things work, and also knows where improvements are needed.

"When he announced his candidacy Mr. Hillyer said 'I am a constitutional conservative—and an opportunity society conservative as well, hearkening back to the Reagan-Kemp era of prosperity and liberty. Free men and women, with free minds, in a free market, produce abundance and a vibrant society.' That is exactly the attitude we need in Washington," said Ms. Banister.
