Joe Miller: These Two New Facts Should Give Everyone Pause

This week we’ve already learned at least two facts that should give pause to anyone who cares about the liberty and prosperity of this country. First, an FBI investigation into the IRS scandal has so far determined there was no criminal wrongdoing and therefore no one should be held accountable. In other words, after investigating itself, the Obama Administration announced, “There is nothing to see here. Move along, Move along.”

This “investigation” was led by a political supporter of Barack Obama, who gave several thousand dollars to his campaign over both cycles. The probe, which reportedly did not even involve interviewing members from most of the targeted tea party and other conservative groups, found the IRS employees implicated were simply ignorant as to the rules. They did not have any particular political motive.

Really? I am not making any of this up.

The “investigation” cleared this atrocious abuse of government power by the IRS, which blatantly violated Americans constitutional rights to freedom of association and freedom of speech.

These are the kinds of unlawful or immoral actions we have come to expect from this Administration. Yet Senator Mark Begich has no intention of standing up for Alaskans’ constitutional rights or the cherished freedoms of all Americans. You only need look to the IRS scandal, the NSA surveillance scandal, the Associated Press wire-tapping scandal, or Benghazi.

Or how about the liberal Politifact’s number-one rated lie of 2013: “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare”? Senator Begich joined with President Obama in making that promise, yet thousands of Alaskans have seen their plans cancelled.

If you are tired of the lies, and the countless scandals with no one being held accountable, stand with me and help me remove Obama-enabler Senator Begich from office.

The second piece of news is that, for the first time in the history of Index of Economic Freedom published each year by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal, the United States does not rank in the top ten nations. Denmark and Ireland moved ahead of the U.S., causing us to drop out of the top ten. We are now the only nation in the history of the index to fall for seven years in a row.

The United States has earned the dubious distinction of being only “mostly free” while other nations enjoy the ranking and benefits of being “free.” The main issues that caused America to lose its place include: new and onerous regulations, including ObamaCare; quantitative easing, where the fed prints money out of thin air; and out of control deficit spending.

If you agree it is time to begin restoring America to the “city on hill” she is meant to be, I need to hear from you today. We can’t win this effort without your help. One thing is for certain, Mark Begich and my Establishment primary opponents will not move America off the path that leads to continued decline.

Rest assured, I am committed to making the United States once again the beacon of freedom, both politically and economically, but I need your help today!

In Liberty,

Joe Miller, Candidate
United States Senate
