Congressman Amash is one of only a handful of current Republican Congressman to vote “No” on the re-authorization of the Patriot Act, NDAA, and raising the debt ceiling. Open and transparent, Congressman Amash personally explains every vote he casts on his Facebook profile. He opposes crony capitalism and supports a full audit of the Federal Reserve. He opposes all tax increases as well as any spending bill that would create an unbalanced budget.
He voted against intervention in Libya and opposes the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A staunch supporter of civil liberties, he opposed the National Defense Authorization Act, the PATRIOT Act, TSA, SOPA and all restrictions on internet freedom.
In addition to the support of Liberty for All, he has been endorsed by former Rep. Ron Paul, The Club for Growth, Young Americans for Liberty, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Michigan, and FreedomWorks PAC amongst many others.
