Congratulations Congressman Amash.

No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17

Congratulations Congressman Amash.

Who's his momma?  Refusing a congratulatory phone call from your opponent is the height of rudeness and snobbery.

He should get his face slapped.

Amash's opponent ran a sleazy campaign.  He was right to call him on it.  I appreciate a man standing up for himself and not being a phony.

So what?  Amash looks like a child throwing a tantrum.  If he can't stand the heat, he has no business in the kitchen.

It's trashing like this that the die hards of the Tea Party like, which is why the Tea Party is losing support.

Amash has not missed a vote in over 1,000 opportunities.  He also has a website where he explains why he voted a certain way or not.  He's far more transparent than the administration.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Justin Amash is one of the few good guys in DC. The person or louse who ran against him deserves the back of Justin's hand nothing more nothing less. Thank goodness we have some who are honest staying in DC.

He's the nominee, so it's time to get behind him, like it or not.

Sure, because we need the GOP votes. But no one can possibly believe that this guy will accomplish much if he can't deal with his opponents any better than this. He's not going to be a star - politics ain't beanbag, and he's going to have to learn to deal with it graciously.
