#NCSEN Brannon says: Stop hijacking the term ‘conservative’







Cary physician Greg Brannon, Tea Party favorite and one of the leading contenders for the GOP nomination for US Senate, told a Moore County audience last night about one of his pet peeves:

”Boy, this word ‘conservative’ is quite popular.  Every election year, you see and hear it all over the place.  A lot of people on the campaign trail talk about how conservative they are. But after they get elected, they forget about all of that stuff.  Thom Tillis has the word ‘conservative’ all over his campaign literature and web site.  But he’s voted for and supported toll roads, government-funded light rail, mandates and common core.  If that’s what passes for conservative these days, count me out.  My view on conservatism is one of strict adherence to The Constitution as well as stripping power from the government and giving it back to the people.”

Brannon also showed some skepticism about Tillis’ claims of being a fighter against ObamaCare in the legislature:

“Sure, the general assembly blocked the establishment of a state exchange.  But due to a lack of familiarity with The Constitution, they left the door open for federal exchanges.  Legislatures in Alabama and South Carolina passed laws making it illegal for anyone to come into their states and try to implement ObamaCare. If those states could do that, why couldn’t our leaders here in North Carolina do the same? Stopping short in the fight against ObamaCare allowed the feds to come in here, get ObamaCare rolling, force average premiums to increase 300 percent, and cause a whole lot of people to lose their insurance. Our legislators owe the people of North Carolina a good explanation as to why they stopped short of finishing that fight.”

Brannon told his audience he sees the campaign as being quite similar to a job interview:

“All five of us need to be out there in front of the voters fielding questions and  trying to explain why they need to hire us as their next U.S. senator. Four of us have been doing a lot of that.  I wish Thom would join us.  He’s pretty well kept to himself, limiting his appearances to private fundraisers.  The voters need to see all of us, and hear from all of us, as they deliberate on this very important decision. ”

  1. I heard Dr Brannon for the first time this past summer in Monroe. It was all I needed to hear and totally convinced me this is who NC needs to run against the Obama PUPPET KAY HAGAN! One prospective that Dr Brannon(who is a renowned surgeon and an expert on Obamacare) said that is totally true and simple and straight to the point is…”There is no healthcare in Obamacare” !

  2. NC deserves a real constitutional conservative senator. Voters are starving for a principled conservative like Dr. Brannon. Going on 6 years of neo-communist national leadership we understand that the threat to our liberties have never been greater. NC is at the tipping point and couldn’t be luckier to have a candidate like the doctor. It doesn’t get any better than someone of his caliber to take on the battle for our 2nd amendment rights and the full repeal of Obamacare. No other candidate even comes close. He’s the most qualified to fight against the catastrophic combination of incompetence and political correctness that is running rampant in the Obama administration.
    This is going to be a grass-roots, tea-party victory!

  3. Brannon is the ONLY qualified conservative that can WIN! He is EXACTLY what NC needs asap!!!

    The fact that the media is trying to keep him out of view should tell
    you all you need to know!

  4. Brannon is spot on. I, too, am sick of all the counterfeit conservatives that come out of the woodwork, who have no allegiance to principle and just try to coop the term to pull the wool over voters eyes.

    In his last and unsuccessful race for the US Senate, ultra liberal Democrat George McGovern even tried to call himself a conservative. People like Rove and Tilli$ are just as phony and are no more conservative than McGovern was. Their abuse of the term conservative shows that people like Rove and his errand boy Tilli$ are just fundamentally dishonest. They are liars of the same ilk as Obama.

    When it comes to Obamacare, we need to remember that when McCrory waffled on stopping Obamacare, Tilli$ immediately waffled, too. It was only Berger and the Senate sticking to their guns that forced the issue of North Carolina not taking part in Obamacare through our state government. On issue after issue, it was Berger and the Senate who pushed conservative issues, while liberal Thom Tilli$ in the House tried to play to the special interests by stopping or watering down conservative proposals. Thom Tilli$ plays politics the corrupt and liberal way he was taught by his poliical godfathers, Jim Black and RIchard Morgan.

  5. tilli$ is obviously another boehner /mccain/ graham RINO made in the same mold. Another pseudo “conservative” on a power hungry quest. His record thus far should be a stern warning to all of us here in North Carolina. RINO’s are the ultimate in covert espionage – truly wolves in sheep’s clothing.
