Rep. Walter Jones 1 D.C. Republican Establishment 0.
Somehow the Republican insider know-it-all crowd in Washington, D.C. (District of Corruption) became disenchanted with Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina, the state’s most conservative Congressman and set up a primary battle against him. Rep. Jones won easily, showing his constituents were savvy voters. Dot Helms, widow of conservative legend Jesse Helms, even endorsed Congressman Jones. Congressman Jones, a twenty year veteran House member, routinely votes against foreign aid, and came to oppose the Iraq war, after initially voting for it, which apparently angered the in-crowd. Why don’t they have enough sense to shut down foreign aid entirely instead of going along with the Demoleft? Walter shows a lot of backbone in standing up for truth instead of playing the games of many “get along by going along” Republicans. You can forgive Walter Jones if he now tells the Republican leadership where to go.
Columnist Pat Buchanan describes the Republican leadership as the “intolerant ideological monied elite of the party to which conservatives give allegiance,” an excellent description.
“Our ‘Big Tent’ is not big enough to include Walter Jones. But if that is true of Walter Jones, what does that say to a nation that has come to agree with Walter Jones that America should mind her own business and stop fighting other countries’ wars?
Who is out of touch with America here?”

You could say Congressman Jones is getting the same treatment the establishment gave Dr. Ron Paul. Pat Buchanan has an excellent column on the party’s mistreatment of Mr. Jones.
Don’t forget - the giant insurance companies supported Obamacare. Big business is often in bed with big government.
