FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Eric Rall, secretary@rlcca.org

 

The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Paul Hannosh in his campaign to represent California’s 8th Congressional District, which includes Inyo County, Mono County, and northern San Bernardino County. Hannosh is a US Army veteran, a school board member, and a schoolteacher. He is running for Congress on a platform that includes fiscal discipline, tax reform, ending NSA surveillance, and freeing education from federal interference.

Paul Hannosh is challenging incumbent Republican Paul Cook, whose voting record in the state legislature received the lowest score of any Republican in the RLCCA’s Liberty Index. The RLCCA is endorsing Hannosh over Cook in order to hold our elected officials accountable and improve the quality of representation. Anthony Rice, the RLCCA’s Southern Regional Director, says “Paul Hannosh is a passionate defender of liberty and has shown a great understanding of the US Constitution as a History Teacher. His limited government mentality is exactly what Congress needs.”

Paul Hannosh says, “As a Rand Paul supporter, I am thrilled to be given the Republican Liberty Caucus national endorsement. The problems we face in America are not due to political gridlock but due to a nanny state mentality at home and abroad that seeks dragons to slay. Government doesn’t create jobs it just seeks it’s own preservation and expansion and has a parasitical effect on it’s host, the productive part of society. The ‘parasite’ of government has now grown to the point where it is endangering the health of its host and must be downsized. We now have nearly as many Americans on Welfare as working full time and we continue to spend more on Defense than the next 10 highest defense countries budgets combined. This cannot continue indefinitely. Either we address the problem now in an orderly fashion or we will be forced to address the problem in a state of chaos. I am willing to address this problem and start putting working Americans first, not our government establishment.”

Resolution Against Syrian Intervention

Whereas the Constitution grants Congress the exclusive power to declare war, specifically so that no one person or group can drag an entire nation into military action;

Whereas the use of military force is one of the most dire decisions placed before Congress; Whereas the Syrian civil war is a brutal conflict between a tyrannical dictator on one side and a coalition that includes Al Qaeda on the other;

Whereas there is no American national interest at stake in Syria serious enough to justify American military involvement;

Whereas any American involvement runs a very large risk of making the conflict worse and aiding our enemies, in addition to the inevitable loss of innocent life in any large-scale military operation;

The Republican Liberty Caucus of California joins the national Republican Liberty Caucus in condemning the administration’s proposed intervention in Syria and urges California’s Congressional delegation to vote against authorizing the use of military force.
