Alabama Tea Party Candidate For Congress In Ad: “Gather Your Armies”
Rick Barber, in a run-off with Martha Roby in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District for the right to run against freshman Democrat Bobby Bright, has a new ad out with images of pistols, calling for impeachment of President Obama, and featuring a founding father warning to “gather your armies” against the IRS. Barber denies that his his ad is intended to incite.
Barber: “…And I would impeach him, and if that’s not enough–some of you men owned taverns. Sam, you were a brewer, Mr. President a distiller. You know how tough it is to run a small business without a tyrannical government on your back.
“Today, we have an Internal Revenue Service that enforces what they call ‘a progressive income tax.’ You’ll love this: Every year, if not every quarter, we’re basically required to spy on ourselves — report what he earn, who we hire and fire with an all-powerful separate court system. Without representation, they can increase taxes, impose costly regulation or conduct malicious audits.
“Now this same IRS is going to force us to by health insurance. Cram it down our throats, or else. Now I took a took an oath to defend that with my life [points at copy of Constitution] and I can’t stand by while these evils are perpetrated.
“You gentlemen revolted over a tea tax. A tea tax. Now look at us! Are you with me?”
Founding Father: “Gather your armies.”
