Do you trust the Senate Conservatives Fund to fight the GOP-e. I looking for where to put my campaign dollars. I'm also looking at American Legacy for Ben Carson. http://www.americanlegacypac.org/
Pick a candidate you can believe in and think is truthful and donate directly. Honestly, I don’t even think most of the Tea Party associated groups are what I’d call ideologically true with their finances. IOW, there is a heck of a rake off in $ to the road. IMO, Club for Growth has the best admin rakeoff, but I am not telling you to give them money. Go for the candidate and your ideals that match his/hers.
Direct to candidates is good - but I think Senate Conservative Fund is pretty solid. Stay away from Judson Phillips group and Jenny Beth Martins groups - they do nothing but hoard the money to themselves.
This guy is fighting the gope big time. And needs $.
Appreciate all the input here.
Send it to the proper candidate that you wish to be supported!
I understand send $$$ directly to candidate of choice which has been my practice as of late BUT also a Super PAC to lobby Congress for our causes is also important.
The GOP leadership didn’t help Allen West either
One of the facts about the Tea Party is that it’s only “grass roots” and not like the political parties. So ... in terms of issues that resonate with the Tea Party people, you’re not going to find such a thing. I’ve been told many times here on Free Republic that the “Tea Party” is not a party, but just a bunch of people who vote their way.
I sort of think you’re not going to find that, according to “this understanding” of the “Tea Party”.
Definitely I trust them; their mission really is to elect conservative candidates; you can donate to the fund and put on your ck. the name of the candidate you wish the money to go to; they do get the money to that candidate.
I would donate to the best qualified conservative in your state that is running. If conservatives do that, we are getting the best bang for the buck with direct contributions.
This Mississippi primary showed that the grasping incumbent is a bigger threat than just the moderate Republican. I can live with a Susan Collins in that state — its not my state and she gets elected. I can live with a Rand Paul in KY — I don’t live there. That is what that electorate wanted and got.
But, in my state (recently) I have too many AZ glamour boys starting with McCain and Flake. We need some serious people not just lifelong pols looking to spend a life in Congress.
But I live in Minnesota. A State Rep is as local I can get to a conservative politician.
That is where it has to start then.
You can however look at the House candidates and pick the one that will give the best results if elected by defeating a Dem.
We have these glamorous candidates that are wanting National dollars — don’t give into that unless you have money to burn. Ted Cruz needs no more money in TX right now. Let’s concentrate on the next Congress.
Last time I gave was the 2012 Presidential elections. First gave to Herman Cain, but he ran away. Gave to Newt but be folded. Many of the Tea Party wins went to DC and flip plopped. It’s so hard to judge.
I know McFadden is hardly a conservative icon, but if he is aware that he is getting Conservative dollars, isn’t he going to be a lot better than Franken?
Should McFadden have a feeling that he gets no conservative support after winning the nomination, and ignore your concerns in the General election and if somehow he wins?
Did give to Allen West to get a recount but that never happened.
There is no such thing as a candidate you can believe in, only a candidate you have control over. The politician you have control over is working for you, all others are working for someone else, which means against you.
You’ll want a small group of dedicated power-grabbers who want to work together, behind-the-scenes to take control your county/local politics.
Not a political group per se, but a group of business owners, professionals, etc., who want to not just “have an effect” on local politics, but actually take it over, pulling the strings behind both the Dem and Repub machines.
Your group will want two publicly-known political fronts, one a faction within the Repubs, the other one a faction within the Dems. While the fronts will be publicly known, your group will want to stay secret. You’ll want a hierarchical organization with a small committee at the top to call the shots.
Your plans will have to be gradual, and include being able to change local puplic opinion. Without that, you can’t really rule behind-the-scenes.
You’ll want a few lawyers in your group, and a few political types who will be loyal to your group and, though they are presently Pubbies or Dems, will actually be minions working for your group. You’ll want a few fundraising types who can squeeze contributions and backing out of wealthy folks. You’ll want a few grassroots organizer types in your group.
Your group will then pick nice young people who are not in politics that might be able to one day be nice political puppets: loyal to you and able to learn how to play politics. To ensure that you have good control over your puppets, you’ll need to develop a powerful mental hold over them by having “the goods” on them. The more corrupted they are, the better control you’ll have.
Your small merry band of puppetmasters will gradually get more and more of their own puppets elected and one day will be calling the shots in your area. That’s the only group worth spending money and time on and the only way to avoid government working against you and have government working for you.
Club for Growth is just another front, like all the Dem and Repub fronts. They have no moral stance based on the Bible, just a push to allow elitest free trade to do whatever it wants, holding that out as a mysterious “carrot” which will bring “prosperity”. In truth, their programs do bring prosperity, but it’s prosperity for the elites. Any prosperity of the sheeple is just incidental and temporary as far as elites are concerned, but they’ll never admit that.
I support the candidate running for a local office that rings my doorbell and comes in to give me his/her pitch and answers my questions favorably. I also attend town hall meetings and phone townhalls. The last time I supported the GOP or any other national political organization financially was when John McCraven named Sarah Palin as his running mate and we know how that worked out.
Support your chosen candidates directly, not PACs.
Your plans will have to be gradual...
WE DON”T HAVE TIME... Our Country is in a state of emergency
I have a skepticism about every Republican getting a “Tea Party” challenger who then expects solid conservative support when they have no track record or experience.
Roberts in KS is hardly a RINO but he has Wolf trying to drum up more support after he winded out based upon the Thad fiasco in MS. Roberts isn’t Thad.
We can’t get rid of a Dem Senate without some incumbents and mainline Republicans — politics is the art of the possible was Bismark’s dictum as I recall.
Since 2009, I’ve only donated to individual candidates or PACs I believe in. I have stopped sending money to Washington’s Central Party types (RNC, NRSC, etc.).
“Since 2009, Ive only donated to individual candidates or PACs I believe in. I have stopped sending money to Washingtons Central Party types (RNC, NRSC, etc.).”
Same here. The GOP has left me. I send directly to the candidates of my choice.
Donate directly to the Conservative candidate of your choice. Listen to the informative and knowledgeable talk show hosts like Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh for insight into the candidates and strategy to win this country back. Support out-of-state true Conservative candidates when they are truly in need..we're all in this together, no matter what state we live in. And keep on fighting for this country..it may be a long haul to the finish line and a WIN for the Constitution, our liberty and freedom. But, we either fight and win, or we lose this country. Let's put down our electronic toys, our trivial pursuits, and with the exception of our responsibilities to our family and work, we must devote our time to winning this war. We know what we have to do,so let's complete this mission and WIN>
Carson is completely soft on the 2nd Amendment. There’s no way I would support him.
I wouldn’t assume that is run by ben carson.
Carson is completely soft on the 2nd Amendment. Theres no way I would support him.
Ben Carson: 2nd Amendment Needed In Case Govt Goes Off The Rail
Your presumption is that because he is not radically progun, every other other strong point is null.
That is the attitude that got Obama elected.
Carson does not have the antigun fervor necessary to develop real change. The question is therefore not germane
Thanks for the post...but he is also on record as being in favor of 2nd Amendment zones. He also favors amnesty...but doesn’t call it that.
Sadly, I think he is the type to say anything to get elected.
Check these out.
Ben Carson previously stated that the right to possess semi-automatic weapons should be dependent on location and should be banned in heavily populated areas.
I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and Im afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it, he said in an earlier interview.
Thats someone who doesn’t understand the 2nd Amendment.
The fact he has such a view doesn’t mean he will be a radical antigun wacko.
Becoming thought police is the way certain to relect another Obama
He is black...... are you really a closet racist?
ha ha...I’m guessing that was a joke.
To me, the gun zone view is a nonstarter. It speaks to the fact that he is willing to compromise our Constitutional rights. There are plenty of areas in the other laws for compromise. Our basic rights is not one of the places.
He might not be a radical antigun wacko....but he clearly doesn’t understand the Bill of Rights.
