Tennessee: State Rep. Joe Carr Announces Tea Party Primary Challenge to Republican Incumbent Sen. Lamar Alexander


Hey Tennessee … Its time you have Representation that reflects the views of your state, not a RINO.

Tennessee State Representative Joe Carr has announced that he is going to primary challenge Republican incumbent US Senator Lamar Alexander next year. Carr announced his primary challenge to Alexander on Ralph Bristol’s conservative talk show on 99.7 WTN. Carr was running against the embattled U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais for the GOP nomination in the state’s 4th congressional district; however, has decided to shift his focus to defeating moderate and “the most liberal” member of the Tennessee Republican delegation. It was anticipated that some one would challenge Alexander as the 73 year old Alexander’s views hardly reflect the Republican “red” Volunteer state these days. As reported at News Channel 5, Carr, of Lascassas, said “He’s [Alexander]getting into the race because Alexander is “too liberal” for Tennessee”.

State Rep. Joe Carr announced today he will challenge U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander in next year’s Republican primary.

In his announcement on Ralph Bristol’s conservative talk show on 99.7 WTN, Carr called Alexander “the most liberal” member of the state’s Republican delegation.

Insiders had anticipated a tea party candidate would challenge the 73-year-old Alexander, who has become a target of those from the far right.

So who will the current conservative politicians in Tennessee support? Many of them pander to the Tea Party, well its time to put up or shut up. And that means you US Rep. Marsha Blackburn.  A vote for Joe Carr and his primary challenge to Lamar Alexander would show a clear message to the establishment Republicans who seem more concerned with maintaining power than they do acting like Republicans with GOP principles.   He has my vote.

      THE RINO votes along with the Democrat votes in both the Senate and the House will assure that the Islamic appeasing/Marxist agenda of Barack Obama will be furthered. The RINOS (Democrat plants? Republican sell-outs?) are not going away.

      Unless RINOS in the Senate and the House are replaced with Conservatives or … a Conservative Party emerges … it is all for naught. Bottom line! As it currently stands … the two party system in the US is nothing but an illusion.

      Conservatives … check the voting record of your candidate. It is imperative that he/she does not only talk the Conservative talk but also walks the Conservative walk.

      James 2: 14-17 – What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.

      Cruz: We Don’t Have Votes in House or Senate to Defund Obamacare Now
      JUL 31, 2013

      Unless there’s a dramatic change in the next two months and the “American people rise up in overwhelming numbers,” Cruz said, Obamacare won’t be defunded.

      “Right now, we don’t have the votes. We don’t have the votes in the House. We don’t have the votes in the Senate,” Cruz said at the gathering of Young Americans for Liberty. “I’m going to be perfectly candid, we can’t win this fight. Mike Lee can’t win this fight, I can’t win this fight, Rand Paul can’t win this fight. No Washington politician can win this fight. The only people who can win this fight are you. The only way we win this fight is if the American people rise up in overwhelming numbers and demand our elected officials to do the right thing and stand for principle.”

      “It’s a good question,” Cruz responded, “and I’ll tell you the simplest answer: To successfully impeach a president you need the votes in the U.S. senate.”

      Think about it. If it were not for the 14 Senate Republican “YES” votes … the Democrats would not have received the 60 votes required to pass the Comprehensive Immigration Bill. and … it appears that the Bill will pass in the House with the anticipated “YES” votes forthcoming from RINOS.

      Where is the outrage from Conservatives!! Maybe the Tea Party needs to take a few lessons from the protest organizers behind the Muslim, Black, Hispanic, Gay and Marxist (OWS Movement). It appears that these protestors catch the attention of the “powers that be” and respective causes are furthered.

      John McCain: We Don’t Need 20,000 More Border Agents
      July 30, 2013

      Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) helped write the Senate’s immigration bill and voted for an amendment that would spend $46 billion on new border security measures, while doubling the size of the Border Patrol. But now, McCain admits the plan was simply meant to secure Republican votes and that he is open to other ways to secure the border.

      “I’ll give you a little straight talk, we don’t need 20,000 additional border patrol agents,” the Arizona senator said at an event sponsored by the AFL-CIO.

      “I voted for it so friends of mine would have comfort that we are securing the border,” McCain added. “But the real securing of the border is with technology as opposed to individuals, although we do certainly need individuals.”
