  •  he seems too intelligent for the present GOP (0+ / 0-)

    so he has surely gotta go?

    or is this quote unusual for him ...

    •  he's a libertarian...From Wiki dictionary: (0+ / 0-)

      "At the age of 30, Amash assumed office as the second youngest sitting U.S. Representative, behind 29-year-old Aaron Schock of Illinois. As of 2013, Amash was the 6th youngest U.S. Representative. He is Chairman of the House Liberty Caucus[2] and associated with the Tea Party movement.[3][4][5][6][7]"

      1. Hope he doesn't follow Schock into the shadows, for his sake. Not likely.

      2. Youth is a factor in his background proclivity toward libertarianism. Favored R Paul and J. McCain early. Beat the other Repub and Demo in Michigan 60+ in 2010 and 2012. (I don't know why 2014 was left out, but the info was probably dated before that time, hence the reference to that year in the diary response).

      3. Other Repubs think he's a jerk on the mold of Gohmert but with a lot more brains. He does have some redeeming values, but in a deep red district, unlikely to be unseated any time soon.

      Methinks he's just thinking out loud as a libertarian in a Republican cage; the public IS behind him and he's probably having a hissy fit trying to figure out why things aren't going his way (hasn't been able to pass any of his 12 bills submitted over the years).

      There. now I can go back to sleep, perchance to dream...
