In Michigan's 8th District, both Mike Bishop and Tom McMillin, are the two Republican candidates vying for the office of Congressman for that district. The scorecard covers the years from 2009 to 2010 when both served in the Michigan Legislature. Mike Bishop is accusing Tom McMillin of not being conservative and a tax and spend politician. Well if one reviews the scorecard it is quite apparent to see why the Lansing based news service MIRS rated Mike Bishop - MOST LIBERAL (2008) and Tom McMillin - MOST CONSERVATIVE (2009).
One has to ask why Mike Bishop, who says he is conservative, has Mike Rogers campaigning for him? Mike Rogers has been for the NSA, NDAA, CIPSA, and SOPA. All government agencies and laws that spy and restrict freedoms of the citizens of this country.
Tom McMillin is against the NSA, NDAA, CIPSA, and SOPA. Tom McMillin also calls for the audit of the Federal Reserve as well as reigning in the IRS.
When one see the voting records side by side, it becomes quite apparent who the true Conservative.
