Kurt Bills, won the Republican nomination


Last Friday, the YAL PAC-endorsed U.S. Senate Candidate, Kurt Bills, won the Republican nomination at the Minnesota State Convention. He will now take on the statist Democrat, Amy Klobuchar.

Thanks to your support, the YAL PAC bundled $18,315 for his victorious primary campaign.

Also, Kurt's Deputy Field Director, Matt Pagano, is a YAL member and YAL-trained activist. And, just this week, YAL MN State Chair, Tim Bertram, left his position with YAL to join Kurt's campaign as Youth Coordinator.

Take a look at this picture with Matt and Kurt at the state convention:

Our message is growing, and YAL's mission of "winning on principle" continues to advance!

Kurt won the nomination with more than 60% of the convention vote -- more votes than his two well-funded establishment opponents COMIBINED. But to win the general election, Kurt will need to raise enough money to fight Klobuchar's established fundraising machine.

That's where you and I must come in. Your past support played a significant role in securing his primary victory. But, now he needs your support again for the general election.

Will you help take on the establishment's money machine and send Kurt to the Senate?

He is exactly the candidate we need to assist Rand Paul and Mike Lee in their fight for liberty on Capitol Hill!

Remember, Kurt Bills:
  • Is an economics teacher who supports free markets
  • Opposes all government spending that adds to our national debt
  • Supports a full audit of the Federal Reserve
  • Opposes the PATRIOT Act, TSA, SOPA, and NDAA
  • Supports a non-interventionist foreign policy and ending the wars overseas
Learn more about Kurt's principled positions here.

Then, please consider donating to him at this key time. Your contribution of $25, $50, $250 or $2,500 ($5,000 for couples) through the YAL PAC will signal to Kurt that you support his strict constitutional positions and stand alongside him as he prepares to take on the big-government Democrat.

As you can see, YAL is doing everything we can to elect another "Champion of the Constitution." I hope you will join in too.

For liberty,

Jeff Frazee
Executive Director, YAL

The Consequences of Our Political Choices

The Significance of the Obamacare Ruling
by Robert Tracinski
Editor's Note: My local Tea Party group, the Jefferson Area Tea Party, is meeting tonight. We were supposed to be gathering for a talk by Oleg Atbashian of The People's Cube, but Oleg got trapped in Florida because of a hurricane. So instead, among other things, I'm giving a short presentation tonight on the Obamacare ruling and its implications. Here is what I plan to say.—RWT
We're back to square one.
I know today's Supreme Court opinion on Obamacare is a disappointment, but let's remember why it is a disappointment. No one had any great expectations that the Supreme Court would throw out the whole health care law—we though it might, but we didn't expect it—before late March. It was only after the oral hearings on Obamacare that we began to hope that a majority of justices would accept the constitutional arguments against it. So our expectations were disappointed only because they were raised.
Now those expectations were not entirely dashed. A number of people have pointed out that there is a silver lining in Chief Justice Roberts' ruling. The whole case for the constitutionality of Obamacare, as presented by the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress, was that the regulatory power given to Congress under the Commerce Clause is unlimited. But Roberts specifically rejected that argument and wrote into his opinion anexplicit limitation on the scope of the Commerce Clause. Here is what he wrote:

"Construing the Commerce Clause to permit Congress to regulate individuals precisely because they are doing nothing would open a new and potentially vast domain to congressional authority. Congress already possesses expansive power to regulate what people do. Upholding the Affordable Care Act under the Commerce Clause would give Congress the same license to regulate what people do not do. The Framers knew the difference between doing something and doing nothing. They gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it. Ignoring that distinction would undermine the principle that the Federal Government is a government of limited and enumerated powers. The individual mandate thus cannot be sustained under Congress’s power to 'regulate Commerce.'"
Now that is the kind of thing we haven't heard in a long time. And he got four liberal justices to sign off on it.
But that's kind of a pyrrhic victory, because he did sustain the individual mandate under the government's power to tax, which apparently is unlimited. The whole point of limiting the power of Congress under the Commerce Clause is to stop legislation like Obamacare. So if it doesn't stop Obamacare, the limitation is a bit theoretical and airy-fairy.
The big lesson here is this. If you limit one of government's broad, sweeping, unlimited powers, you'll find that they get you with another of the government's broad, sweeping, unlimited powers. Remember the story of the little Dutch boy and the dike? He sticks his finger in a chink in the dike to stop the kingdom from being flooded. Well, we stuck our finger in the Commerce Clause chink over here, and then a new leak sprung up in the Taxation Power chink over there.
So it's a reminder of how vast and out of control government power has gotten, and how big a task we still have ahead of us.
As for the immediate implication, Chief Justice Roberts told us exactly what to do.

"Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation's elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."
Repeat: "It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices."
The American people made bad political choices in 2006 and 2008, and it's going to take three elections to undo them. It will take three votes to cycle through all of the seats in the Senate and reverse the huge Senate majority the Democrats had in 2008.
This is the second of those elections. And as Mitt Romney reminded us, the only way to get rid of Obamacare now is to vote Barack Obama out of office. And not just to remove the president, but to get a strong Republican majority in the Senate. I don't think I need to remind people here in Virginia what that means for us.
So it's up to us now to fight for the repeal of Obamacare by making our wishes known at the polls in November. This is the most important fight of our lives, and not just because Obamacare is destructive and a power grab. It is important because of how Obamacare was passed.
Here's one of the things I noticed about the ruling. When Obamacare was passed, President Obama swore blind that the individual mandate was not a tax. And when Democrats in Congress were asked for the constitutional justification for the law, they cited their unlimited power under the Commerce Clause. So this ruling basically holds that Obamacare is constitutional—if we assume that Obama was lying and that Congress was dead wrong about the Constitution.
But we know that this won't really faze the left, because we know, from history, the kind of calculation they make. They don't mind lying and twisting the arguments to get a bill passed, and they don't even mind losing an election or two, if they have to. Because they know that once the law is passed—again, based on historical experience—once it is passed, it's there forever. Government grows, more people are made depending on government benefits, and they get to act as the benefactors who are handing out all of these free goodies, and as the people protecting these benefits against those mean-spirited Republicans who keep telling us that we can't afford it.
So you can see the strategic calculation. Lose an election today, but expand the state and win elections tomorrow.
This calculation works for them, so long as nothing ever gets repealed. It's a sort of Brezhnev Doctrine for statism. Back during the Cold War, Brezhnev was the Soviet dictator who said that once a country went Communist, it was never allowed to go back. So if someone decided to allow a little bit of freedom in Hungary or in Czechoslovakia, in rolled the tanks. People don't remember it much these days, but there were two competing theories about how to deal with this. The first was "containment," which is what we did for a long time. The idea was just to keep the Soviets from expanding, but we still accepted the advances the Soviets had already made.
The other strategy was called "rollback," which was the idea that we should try to dislodge the Communists from Latin America, from Eastern Europe, from places like Afghanistan. And the moment we did that—well, you know how it turned out.
What we need is a strategy of rollback for big government, for the welfare state. We need to show the Democrats that they can lose Congress and lose the presidency for the sake of Obamacare—and we'll still repeal the damned thing. That ought to reduce the incentive to shove through a piece of legislation that the American people hate.
We need to seek the same outcome that Ronald Reagan announced as his goal for how the Cold War would end: "We win, they lose." We started doing that in November of 2010, and we have to keep on doing it this year.
Postscript: The above is all I'll have time for tonight. Helen has given me a strict time limit, and she's not a woman to be trifled with.
For my readers, I'll add one more point. The Obamacare ruling doesn't just create an issue for the battle between left and right. It also sets up an important crusade within the right. As I have written before, the oral hearings on Obamacare, the seriousness with which the arguments were taken—and now the fact that those arguments were fully accepted by four of the conservative justices—all of that gives us a sense that it may be possible to revive constitutional protections for economic liberty. If Romney wins, this sets one of our top priorities for after the election. We need to make sure that the next Supreme Court appointee is not just someone who is vaguely "conservative," but someone who will accept the kinds of arguments that the four dissenters in this case accepted.
That fight is not over. It is just beginning.

Heritage on SCOTUS


The Plaintiffs’ Perspective on the ObamaCare Ruling


Followed by
Twenty-six states and the National Federation of Independent Business took an
 unprecedented step in challenging the constitutionality of major provisions of the
President’s health care law. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the landmark
 case this week. Find out what the plaintiffs think of the decision by hearing reactions
 from Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott and Karen Harned, NFIB. They will
share their perspectives on the ruling, how the decision might impact the welfare
 of states like Texas and small businesses, and what steps they are considering
in light of the decision. In addition, unpacking the implications of the Court’s
decision for health care, religious liberty, and limited government will be
 Heritage scholars, complemented by the insights of former U.S. Attorney
 General Edwin Meese.

Gary Johnson on SCOTUS


Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign says they have received $1 million in
contributions since the Supreme Court essentially upheld Obama’s
health care law.

This is the same Mitt Romney who created the template for Obama’s plan in Massachusetts. And the same Mitt Romney who has promised to
appoint more ‘John Roberts’ to the Supreme Court – the same Chief
Justice Roberts who was the pivotal vote to uphold the individual healthcare mandate by calling it a tax.

The irony of Gov. Romney receiving $1 million from people wanting
Obama’s law repealed is unbelievable. Those people need to know there is another choice in November than between a Republican who, until he was running for President, led the way toward the nationalized health care the Court upheld today – and a Democrat who was only too happy to take the Romney health care ball and run with it.

Help us make sure the American people know they have another option.
Go to and make a contribution to the campaign that is fighting for real freedom and getting the government out of our health care and our daily lives.

You and I know there is a better way than to simply replace this
President and his friends in Congress with the same Establishment
Republicans who gave us a bank-busting drug benefit and who have
promised to replace the Democrat national health care with their own

Today’s Supreme Court ruling simply confirms that the government in
Washington has moved us so far away from freedom, liberty, and letting
the marketplace work without government mandates that timid
adjustments and political posturing simply won’t help. We need bold
leadership and a President who is not afraid to do the right thing and
challenge the status quo. I pledge to do just that.

But I need your help. America needs to know there is a better way and
a choice in November that isn’t a half-hearted compromise. And it is
up to us to tell them. We would love to have $1 million land in our
account just because people are angry at the Supreme Court – but it
won’t happen unless friends and supporters like you go to today and make a contribution that will help
us get the message out that freedom and liberty and financial sanity
do not have to be compromised.

Go to, please, and help us show America that we don’t have to stand by and watch as the politicians and their
judges trample the Constitution.

Thank you,

Gov. Gary Johnson

P.S. There is only one candidate for President on the ballot in all 50
states who has NEVER advocated having the government force us to buy something, like health insurance. www.garyjohnson2012

Rand Paul on SCOTUS

Today the Supreme Court wrongly concluded that Obamacare can stand.

Make no mistake.  It is not constitutional.   One Justice using tortured logic defying the intent of the framers and the will of the people will claim it is so.  But it is not.

The key part of their decision, in my opinion was a call to action

The decision stated: 

Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

The Supreme Court has told us the answer even while helping trample our rights.

Throw them out.    Every single one of them.

Every Democrat who voted for Obamacare, up to and including President Obama must be defeated this fall if we are to have our last chance to stop Obamacare from taking over our healthcare system.

That means something very simple -- we are at war.    It starts today.

RANDPAC will take the fight to every incumbent Democrat in a competitive race who voted for Obamacare.   We will help lead the charge to do what the Supreme Court just told us is our only option -- throw them out.

Throw them out for violating their oath to uphold the constitution.

Throw them out for a massive government scheme to destroy private healthcare.

Throw them out for massive new taxes and a tightening of their socialist stranglehold on our economy.

I can't do it without you.

That’s why it’s crucial you sign RANDPAC’s “Repeal Obamacare Now!” petition.

Click to sign

After you sign the petition, please make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, $25, $10 –or whatever you can afford – right away so RANDPAC has all the resources necessary to mobilize outraged Americans across the country through email, mail, online advertising – and if we have the funds – hard-hitting TV and radio ads to fire any Democrat who voted for Obamacare.

I am mad as hell this morning reading this decision and watching the statist glee from the White House, the Democrats and the liberal media.

You and I have to wipe that smile off their face this fall.   And our battle begins today.

Help send them a message that YOU are willing to fight back by joining RANDPAC's FULL REPEAL campaign.

Every district, every state.  Anywhere we can make a difference, RANDPAC will go.

So please sign the “Repeal Obamacare Now!” petition today.

In order to succeed in this fight, I must rally hundreds of thousands of Americans, and financially support dozens of candidates in the coming weeks and months

That means I must raise at least $100,000 immediately, and $500,000 by August 1.

Can you help reach those goals with a contribution today?

President Obama and the Democrats will pretend the Supreme Court authored the final words on Obamacare, but there is a little thing called an election this November where you and I will have the final say.

For Liberty,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

P.S. Today the Supreme Court wrongly concluded that Obamacare can stand.

Every Democrat who voted for Obamacare, up to and including President Obama must be defeated this fall if we are to have our last chance to stop Obamacare from taking over our healthcare system.

So please sign the repeal Obamacare petition right away.

After you sign the petition, please make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, $25, $10 – or whatever you can afford today – so RANDPAC can take the fight to every incumbent Democrat in a competitive race who voted for Obamacare.   We will help lead the charge to do what the Supreme Court just told us is our only option -- throw them out.

Is There a Silver Lining to the Supreme Court's Obamacare Decision?

This morning, the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare’s individual mandate...


This morning, the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare’s individual mandate on health insurance. Despite the fact that Obama insisted that his health care law was not a tax, the Supreme Court disagreed. Obama’s signature accomplishment as President is now one of the largest tax increases that the middle class has ever seen.
We must repeal ObamaCare. This begins by electing politicians who oppose higher taxes. In November, we must replace everyone in Washington who voted for a $500 billion tax increase but we need your help.
With your support, we can let voters know the truth about the ObamaCare tax hikes. It’s your voice that will help make the difference in electing fiscal conservatives who stand with taxpayers.
Can we count on your contribution of $10, $15, $20, or $25 today?
On September 12, 2008, Obama promised that “no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.” Barack Obama lied his way into office. ObamaCare includes 20 new or higher taxes that amount to a $500 billion tax over the next decade. In order to help educate Obama sympathizers on his broken promises, we will send you the “Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card” seen below with a contribution of $10 or more today.
Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card Front Side
We plan on holding every politician accountable who supported ObamaCare’s massive tax hike. With swing voters and independents, the full repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate is a winning issue. Displeasure with the law has grown ever since it passed behind closed doors in 2009.
Your voice will make the difference in helping us get rid of everyone who supported this horribly disastrous law.
Can we count on your contribution of $10, $15, $20, or $25 today?

    For the Friday dinner and for the final reception and dance on Sunday night, or if you plan to attend our Sponsors Dinner Saturday night, you should plan to wear something more dressy (a jacket and tie for men or an evening or cocktail dress for women would suit the occasions fine).
    If you want to take notes on the Atlas Summit sessions, a pen or pencil and some loose-leaf notebook paper might serve you well, though your conference binder has a page at least for the outline of each session.
