Just as a reference point:
the average rating for the Senate Democrats in 2009 was 25%. Over the
years, Scott Brown usually voted with CLT. Occasionally he did not, but
we donít insist on perfection before stating our appreciation for
support of our issues.
Barbara Anderson endorsed
Scott Brown immediately after the primary as he put a bumper sticker on
her car for WCVB-TV5 cameras. She has also been supporting him in her
columns for The Salem News and other newspapers (which you can
Here is todayís personal
statement from Barbara:
For the last hours of
this exciting campaign, we are all focused on the mission. I know
CLT activists, along with other Teapartiers and patriots, have been
doing what comes most naturally to each of them: email blasts,
letters to the editor, blog and column responses, calls to talk
shows, and working directly with the Brown campaign attending
rallies, holding signs and making calls to voters.
My special focus has
been to reach out to women who might be tempted to vote for someone
just because she is a woman too. Iíve also tried to reach
libertarians who are tempted to vote for third-party Joe Kennedy,
possibly helping Coakley win.
I like the way Joe
Kennedy presents libertarian values during debates and hope he runs
for another seat when votes for him won't help elect the 60th
Democrat for American Decline.
A libertarian like me,
for whom liberty is the highest value, will vote for Scott Brown on
Tuesday because he is our best chance to turn around the country
before we lose our beloved freedom. Scott is a strong fiscal
conservative, with a 100% CLT rating this past year, but he has never
claimed to be a libertarian; however, "fiscal conservative" is good
enough for this election, which will inspire fiscal conservatives,
libertarians, and tea party activists across the country to run and
take the country back. Scott winning is just the beginning of
Here is todayís personal
statement from Chip Ford:
I keep hearing that one
shouldn't let the perfect be the enemy of the good, yet some do
nonetheless. State Senator Scott Brown has been one of the few on
Beacon Hill to stand with us taxpayers and our concerns. CLT has a
mission. It is simply to protect the taxpayers of Massachusetts to
the best of our ability, be their voice. When the choice is between
Martha Coakley and Scott Brown, there's no hesitation. My vote will
be for Scott Brown, enthusiastically.
We subjects of the
People's Republic of Taxachusetts have for too long been under the
yoke of one-party rule, and now so too is the entire United States
of America. We in the Bay State understand what invincible one-party
rule means, without checks and balances. Scott Brown will help not
only level the playing field in Washington but bring it back, not
just for Massachusetts but for the entire country. The nation
depends on this election outcome. If Coakley wins, we are doomed.
Chip Faulkner is not
available to make a statement at this time; he is out somewhere holding
a sign for Scott Brown. That's a statement in itself.
