U.S. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas – an aggressive military interventionist and ardent opponent of individual liberty – will be the keynote speaker at the S.C. Republican Party (SCGOP)’s annual fundraising gala in May.

Cotton was announced this week as the keynote speaker for the party’s annual “Silver Elephant” gala, which will be held on Friday, May 6 (one day prior to the party’s annual convention).

That’s the day the state party will finalize its delegates to the 2016 “Republican” national convention in Cleveland, Ohio – a process that has garnered plenty of attention in light of the likelihood of a contested convention.

Last we heard of Cotton, he was berating Apple CEO Tim Cook at a conclave of wealthy elites bent on destroying current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

On the positive side, he was the only member of the entire U.S. Congress who voted the right way on a controversial bill pushed by U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee.  That legislation – ostensibly intended to “give Congress a vote” on the Iranian nuclear deal negotiated by the administration of Barack Obama – actually neutered the “Republican-controlled” U.S. Senate.

Specifically, it allowed Obama’s deal to be presented as normal legislation instead of as a treaty.  So rather than needing 67 votes to approve the pact, all Obama needed was forty U.S. Senators willing to oppose any GOP effort to reject the deal.

Ironically, Corker addressed this same gathering of South Carolina “Republicans” back in 2009.

I’ve read some about Cotton.
I respect that he’s a vet and we need some new blood but I’m not truly all in with him…….
Cotton appears to be the Gulf War II version of Oliver North…..kinda/sorta resembles North too……

In the meantime, the GOP is refusing to allow delegates to bring guns to the Republican Convention. WTF. Don’t they want the candidates to be safe?

Gun Free Zone? Uh oh looks like the GOP is advertising that they want criminals to come and gun down would-be legal gun owners!

ardent opponent of individual liberty
Except when the individual is an unborn child.
Except when protecting us from terrorists or investigation of terrorists attacks, like at San Bernardino.
