The task of defeating Barbara Mikulski is quite a daunting undertaking. However, we cannot continue to afford her a free pass every six years with only token Republican opposition. According to the Washington Post, Barbara Mikulski has the most liberal voting record in the Senate! That is an astounding achievement considering the number of extremists in the Senate who jockey for this distinction. The election of any Republican Senator in her place would therefore serve as a drastic improvement from her anti-constitution misrepresentation of Marylanders. However when provided with a choice between a candidate who is a consistent, articulate, comprehensive red meat conservative, and one who is just an "improvement" over the status quo, we must not ignore that vital decision.
There are only two candidates out of the 11 who have filed to run for Senate, who have a realistic chance of winning the primary and mounting a credible challenge to Mikulski; Jim Rutledge and Eric Wargotz. Jim Rutledge has impeccable conservative credentials, while we (as red meat conservatives) have serious concerns with Wargotz. In an attempt to highlight the fact that he is the only candidate who is an elected official, Wargotz has repeatedly implied that he is still the President of the Queen Anne's
The two most important issues that we focus on here are illegal immigration and climate fascism. We have long argued that those two issues represent the most serious threat to our liberty, prosperity, and security. Wargotz is a disaster on both of them.
Eric Wargotz's has an extensive record of peddling climate fascism as a county commissioner. Wargotz signed onto a radical global warming agenda and pledged to cut greenhouse gas admissions in Queen Anne's County. Furthermore, Wargotz, as an official of the board, was a willing member of the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. This is a globalist organization dedicated to the infringement of property rights, destruction of free market capitalism, and undermining of American sovereignty under false pretenses of dealing with the climate fraud. Let us be clear here. There is no room in the conservative movement for anyone who supports Eco-Marxism.
When it comes to illegal immigration, Wargotz's statements are as bad as his record concerning statism. As
Jim Rutledge is a liberty loving constitutionalist who has conservatism running through his veins. He has made illegal immigration a top issue and has pledged to fight against the soft tyranny of climate statism. He will have an uphill fight against Mikulski, but recent polls have shown a sharp decline in her support. She is no longer invincible. The political pundits still rate this race as uncontested, but we have pointed out that they were wrong on their predictions in
