Skip to comments.For Conservatives the only hope now lies with retaking the Congress

As a true Conservative I was completely dishearted when Duncan Hunter dropped out of the race for President and I was willing to stay home this coming Election, but after a few days of deep thought, I feel like I can't stand on the sidelines as liberals in the White House and Congress have free reign to run my nation into the ground.
I served my nation with honor and pride, so I am now searching for truly Conservative Congressional Candidates to elect to majorities in both the House and Senate to limit the damage that a liberal Democrat or Republican can do to this nation.
Conservatives have to draw the line on reckless spending, government growth and massive entitlements that have never worked.
It is better to destroy within than to stand on the sidelines and do nothing.
You’re right, but we have to recruit conservative candidates to run. The usual RINOs in Congress won’t do.
Mega bump my FRiend.
Should have been planning that all along
It is time for members of FR to run for Congress.
That’s kinda the way I’m looking at it. Conservatives retook the house seat from a RINO in my district in the last election. Now we just need to throw Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow into lake Michigan.
I agree. Except that I have decided that most conservatives (and born again Christians) have become cowards.
Certainly agree 100%, in fact we never had a conservative Senate majority under Bush, unfortunately the Northeast (and other) RINOs were a significant part of the republican majority.
That should tell you how daunting it will be to elect a real conservative majority. Please folks, don’t think for a second you are putting a conservative majority in the Senate while the country elects a liberal democrat president. It just doesn’t work that way.
it wont happen this year but theres a shot at 2010. if a dem wins the presidency, the gop will most likely win the house in 2010. the senate looks a little tougher but definitely possible. could be looking at another revolution like ‘94, after 2 years of complete liberal power (both houses of congress and presidency) ripping apart the country.
if one of our rinos wins the presidency, look for the dems to increase their majorities in both chambers come 2010.
Although I am blessed to have great representation in DC, I should take up a “foster” candidate in some other district to support if that will help.
Take a good look at Education, Health Care, the economy, the military, foreign policy, etc. as they are now. These things will be so changed, so fast once Liberals are in the WH that America will be FOREVER unrecognizable to you. These changes WILL be irreversible. Think about that and see if doesn’t keep you awake at night.
Oh no....... TSUNAMI Warning! :-D
Duncan Hunter’s son is running for his dad’s congressional seat.
Well don’t tell Chicago.
Very true. But how are the Conservatives going to overcome the Republicans?
Please permit me to add:
Perhaps this has always been our BEST option, and by design of the founding fathers...
We have all.... too often....
Surrendered our responsibilities and stewardship of freedoms to the popularity contest we call presidential politics ---
But our true and authoritative representation has always remained in the Halls of Congress....
Sooooo let's throw them all out....
And replace them in toto
We only need 535 genuine...
