The Full Story on Dave Agema
As reported in The Grand Rapids Press of January 21 and 26, Betsy De Vos, a major Republican donor, has pressured the GOP to silence the voice of Michigan Republican National Committee (MI RNC) Representative Dave Agema. She and some others have called for his resignation.
Not so fast! There seems to be an incorrect assumption that money and power can over-ride the choice and voice of grassroots Republican conservatives.
Michigan delegates elected MI RNC Representative Dave Agema by a wide margin because he is a man of character. Recently Dave said, “There is a movement to silence the conservative voice in the GOP….Principles matter. When we deviate from our principles, we’re going to lose this country.” (Mlive, 1/27/14)
He went on to underscore several central tenants of the Republican Party: the right to bear arms, legal immigration, prolife, marriage defined as between a man and woman, our rights coming from God, and the government’s responsibility to protect our rights.
If you believe that some leaders in the GOP are bowing to money and power and are betraying these values—including freedom of speech—get a sample of Dave Agema standing for our principles. Watch his Sidewinder video on daveagema.com. He is the elected RNC Representative and he will continue to call the Republican Party back to the U.S. Constitution and the core values for which the GOP stands.
