The TN Campaign for Liberty will be holding a protest outside of Senator Lamar Alexander's event "Salute to the GOP Chairmen" at the Smyrna Air Base on July 20th, 2013. The protest will last from 3:30 until 5pm just outside of the venue. The protest will focus on what the TN Campaign for Liberty is calling, “Senator Lamar Alexander's big-government and unconstitutional voting record.”
The group sent out a press release that showed, “A recent study by Congressional Quarterly shows that Senator Alexander voted with President Obama 62% of the time, more often than any other Republican Senator in the South.”
The TN Campaign for Liberty further stated, "We think that his record is unacceptable and that he should've voted with the Constitution. He is tone deaf to the values of Tennesseans and he should change his ways" said Matt Collins a coordinator with the TN Campaign for Liberty. "Voting for more spending, more debt, a reduction in civil liberties, the bailouts, Obama's Sotomayor Supreme Court confirmation, TARP, funding the IMF, funding the UN, pushing the Internet sales tax, voting for Obama's Cash-for-Clunkers, confirming Ben Bernenke to Chair the Federal Reserve, refusing to audit the Federal Reserve, giving away our tax dollars to foreign governments who hate us, voting to expand the EPA, and voting to expand the FDA, are just some of the reasons that we are protesting Mr. Alexander's big-government voting record."
