Why is the mainstream media ignoring Rick Crawford?

Arkansans joined the nationwide protest movement last year as conservative voters found their collective voice and stood against the Obamanation of our country. From Tea Parties to Health Care Town Halls, these voters calls for responsibility and accountability from their elected officials went largely unheeded. But several candidates for office were paying attention, even when our Representatives and Senators weren’t.

Rick Crawford, GOP candidate for Arkansas’ 1st Congressional district seat in the US House of Representatives was one of these. He’s well known and recognized by 1st district voters who are actively involved in their local Republican Committees or Tea Parties. He’s been working to spread his message since last spring, not only at protests, but local festivals and events across the 1st District.

Crawford appears to have a real shot at becoming the first Republican to represent the 1st Congressional District since 1875. And his campaign is gaining momentum.

But if you were counting on the mainstream media to inform you of Rick’s candidacy, you may not yet know he exists. That’s because television stations and newspapers, statewide and local to the 1st District, have largely ignored his campaign.

Traditional news sources across the state have failed to cover several major developments in what could be an historic campaign. In the past month, Crawford has received three major endorsements from influential Republicans in the state. Mike Huckabee, Ed Bethune, and Asa Hutchinson have thrown their support to this Jonesboro veteran with strong ties to the 1st District’s large agricultural community.

Even the television station from his hometown of Jonesboro doesn’t seem to think his candidacy deserves more than a casual mention every once in a while. Searching their site you’ll see one article devoted to Rick–the August 27, 2009 article on his official announcement that he was entering the race. Those search results do include two articles covering Rep. Marion Berry’s (D) announcement that he won’t seek reelection and Crawford is mentioned almost as an aside in these.

Search results of the archives of the Jonesboro Sun reveal a similar dearth of articles on Crawford’s campaign. The obligatory August announcement that he’s running, then a couple of mentions in articles about Berry. The Sun did mention Crawford in a late January article titled “1st District Race Far from Settled” in late January, but only toward the end and after a long list of potential Democrat contenders.

Arkansas’ statewide newspaper, The Arkansas Democrat Gazette, also mentions Crawford in several Berry articles, but nothing devoted entirely to Rick’s campaign. But the Democrat Gazette did consider it newsworthy that Princella Smith, a potential GOP challenger to Crawford, is thinking about throwing her hat in the ring following Berry’s announcement that he won’t run again.

Of the four major television stations in Little Rock, only KTHV 11 has an article on their website about Crawford. That’s an AP article from May of last year announcing Rick’s intent to challenge Berry.

Last May, on the influential conservative blog Redstate.com, Moe Lane speculated “We will no doubt see more [Crawford] campaign-related items as time goes on.” But we haven’t…at least not from traditional media sources.

Luckily, Crawford embraced new media and social networking sites early on. His Facebook page sports over 1300 fans now and almost 800 follow him on Twitter. Many of these supporters depend on the blog posts on his website to keep them informed since the mainstream media refuses to.

Several Facebook fans recently wondered about the lack of coverage by the mainstream media and one even speculated the media’s liberal bias is to blame.

Shelley asked, “Why is it that we aren’t seeing any articles on you in the papers? I keep waiting to see you mentioned and they talk about all the other candidates and you are never mentioned!”

Grace responded, “I agree, I never see anything about you in the papers. What is up with that?”

And Kelly replied, “I think the main reason that the papers around here are not picking up Rick is because they are controlled by a liberal bias. They are afraid to give Rick the time of day because he is the most creditable [sic] threat to eliminate Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda in Washington…”

Whatever the reason, it’s pretty obvious the mainstream media has chosen to ignore Rick Crawford.

But you can spread the word about his campaign by becoming a fan of his Facebook page, following him on Twitter, and passing along his updates to your 1st District friends and families.

Suddenly, Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) remembers her constituents

For the past year, Senator Lincoln has sucked up to President Obama and Harry Reid, voting for Obama’s $787 trillion “Porkulus” bill, his budget that set a record $1.4 trillion deficit (TRIPLING THE OLD RECORD!), and casting several yea votes in the dead of night and even on Christmas Eve to help the Senate pass Harry Reid’s version of Obamacare. Lincoln’s Arkansas constituents wanted none of these, and let the Senator know it.

She ignored them. Lincoln even went so far as to not answer phones on days when important votes were taking place. It took intense negative pressure for the Senator to agree to meet with constituents during the Senate’s August recess last year, and then she made every effort to meet with the few handpicked supporters of the health care legislation and leave out any who opposed her desire for the government run health care system.

By November, she had chosen to stand on the fence for a while to appear deliberative and responsive to the chorus of criticism being leveled from every corner of Arkansas. In the end, she proved that she had always had her mind made up to vote with Obama and Reid. In the face of uncountable calls, emails, and faxes from constituents demanding she vote against Reid’s version of Obamacare, Lincoln cast her vote with the tyrannical Democrats running the White House and Capitol instead of voting for those she supposedly represents.

Now that it’s an election year, she suddenly remembers that she represents folks back home, especially Arkansas’ farmers. Here’s the text of her latest mass email to constituents:

Earlier today, President Obama released his budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2011. As Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, I am opposed to cuts to programs important to agriculture and rural communities.

Throughout my Senate career, I have been a strong, independent voice for Arkansas’s agricultural producers. Now, as Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee, I am standing up for farmers and ranchers and all of rural America once again by opposing cuts that will harm the hard-working men and women who are the backbone of our rural economy.

Put simply, the President’s proposal picks winners and losers. By targeting policies that rural America relies upon, this proposal places a disproportionate burden on the backs of farmers and rural communities. While I too believe we must reduce the federal deficit, we must all share in this responsibility.

In 2008, I worked hard to pass a five-year farm bill that was fiscally responsible. This bill contained over $4 billion worth of cuts to farm programs, was completely paid for and did not contribute to the deficit. The Farm Bill is a contract with our farmers that they depend on to make business decisions. Changing the rules in the middle of the game would be detrimental to their operations and would cost us even more jobs in rural America.

I thank the President for his recommendations, but Congress writes the budget. I intend to support measures to reduce the deficit but fight many of the President’s proposed cuts that will harm farmers, ranchers and rural communities.

What Lincoln means is now that it’s an election year, I have to stand up for my constituents or I’m guaranteed to lose the election. She’s banking on the long-standing assumption of DC politicians that constituents have short memories. The Senator believes her constituents won’t remember her giving them the finger throughout 2009, if she strokes them behind the ears for the next 9 months.

She’s right the President’s budget picks winners and losers. Just like the “Porkulus” bill, his takeovers of private industry, and his last year’s budget that Lincoln voted for. Now that it’s an election year she can’t bring herself to support his obvious bias that benefits blue states and punishes red states.

Only because it’s an election year!

Don’t be fooled Arkansas. Senator Lincoln will try to appear to address your concerns from now until November. If she’s re-elected, she’ll be right back in the laps of Obama and Reid.

Curtis Coleman: Money Bomb Today!

Earlier this month, we helped stop the Obama-Pelosi-Reid fast train to a government takeover of the US health care system. The battle that ground the Democrat engine to a halt took place in Massachusetts, but patriots from across America sacrificed their valuable time and hard-earned money to help make the victory possible. We can now expect more candidates to try to tap the cooperation and corroboration of Americans from coast-to-coast that helped MA Republican Scott Brown win the seat Democrats never thought they could lose.

Donate $10 for 10 Now

One of Brown’s most successful tactics came in the form of an online “Money Bomb” that raised over $1.3 million in just one day! Thousands of individuals donated as little as $5 to help Brown become the Senator-elect who will soon take the seat so long occupied by the iconic liberal Democrat Ted Kennedy. Now, Arkansas Republican candidate for US Senate Curtis Coleman hopes to boost his campaign coffers utilizing the Brown model.

Coleman is one of four GOP candidates Rasmussen shows leading Senator Blanche Lincoln in this year’s race to represent Arkansas in the US Senate. But the conservative business owner lags behind the GOP establishment favorite in raising campaign cash for the race, and has announced he will be holding his own “Money Bomb” tomorrow.

Calling his event “10 for ’10“, Coleman has set a goal of 1,000 Facebook friends contributing $10 each to raise $10,000 on Saturday. His slogan, “Change America for $10“, implies that anyone (everyone?) in America can do a little to accomplish dramatic, real change for these United States.

Coleman was one of the first to commit to challenge the incumbent Lincoln, and he’s been working hard to establish an impressive grassroots network of supporters across the state. He’s been present at numerous Tea Party events across the state, working the crowd when he wasn’t addressing them. He’s used social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to a much greater extent than his competition. We’ve heard supporters state this extraordinary level of interaction during the campaign and his promise to continue to engage his constituents once elected are the reasons they’ve chosen to support Coleman.

Tomorrow we’ll find out just how effective his efforts have been. If his Money Bomb proves successful, Coleman’s grassroots efforts and extensive use of the internet and social networking may prove to be the tactic that turns the establishment GOP on its head. Members of the Republican hierarchy that call on Coleman and others to drop out and let their candidate run unopposed just might be silenced. And a real Republican primary, where the people of Arkansas choose their nominee, just might occur.

AR GOP Senate candidates hit the airwaves

Two of the GOP candidates for Arkansas’ Senate seat this year have launched the first TV ads of the campaign. Col. Conrad Reynolds and Curtis Coleman both claim to be the first of the nine announced candidates to take their message to the television.

Reynold’s ad announces his upcoming campaign tour featuring Sam Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, later this month. Coleman’s ad is titled “Conservative Comment” and takes on wasteful government spending. Both candidates keep their message positive without mentioning their Republican Challengers or Sen. Blanche Lincoln. (D-AR)

Here are the two 30 second ads followed by a poll where you can select which candidate’s ad is more effective.

You decide: Which ad is the most effective?

Victory in Massachusetts: What it means

Yesterday, the people of Massachusetts went to the polls and voted for real “change” in Washington.  And change is already coming.  We, the people of these United States, would like to express our appreciation to all those Massachusetts voters who voted for Lt. Col. Scott Brown for US Senate.

Two weeks ago, we began urging readers across the country to volunteer on Brown’s campaign.  At that time, Rasmussen Hundreds of you responded with donations of money and valuable time, and the fruit of your effort was harvested last night when Democrat Martha Coakley conceded and Brown declared victory.  The significance of that victory cannot be overstated.

Your tireless efforts on behalf of the Brown campaign helped the Republican candidate win the seat formerly held by the hard left, liberal icon Ted Kennedy.  Democrats practically declared Coakley the winner of the seat after her December victory in Massachusetts’ Democratic primary, and the majority of pundits and politicians on both sides of the aisle believed likewise.

But Scott Brown didn’t give up.  He didn’t throw in the towel because so many said he couldn’t win.  And you didn’t either!

Voters in Massachusetts served as shock troops in the first battle of an offensive by the American people.  An offensive to take this country back from those who campaigned as representatives of the people, but abandoned their constituents after taking office is now underway.  Massachusetts will now serve as our beach head.

In the year after gaining complete control of both the Executive and Legislative branches of government, Democrats interpreted their historic victory in 2008 as a license by the American people to impose nothing less than Socialism on the electorate.  Abandoning any semblance of bipartisanship, high-level Congressional Democrats met in secret with White House officials to make back room deals on every major piece of legislation crafted in Obama’s first year.  Republican bills, amendments, and resolutions were ignored or voted down without serious consideration.  Democrats had the power to impose their will on a resistant constituency and intended to use it.

Even as polls showed Brown gaining on Coakley and Democrats were forced to consider his victory a real possibility, Democrats continued to insist they would move forward on Obama’s health care legislation regardless of the outcome of this election.  Threats to delay seating Brown or to violate long-standing Senate rules to subvert the will of the American people further alienated voters around the country.

Democrats proved just how out of touch they were.

Now the battle is on for the rest of the country.  One third of the US Senate is up for grabs this fall, as is the entire House of Representatives.  Republican Senator candidates in Arkansas, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Kentucky are leading their Democrat challengers by comfortable margins.  In Illinois, Missouri, and California, Republican candidates are already polling closer to their Democrat opponents than Brown was to Coakley two weeks before he defeated her.

With the exception of California, these states are certainly less blue than Massachusetts.  Therefore, it’s a real possibility that voters in these 11 states alone could put the Republican party back in the Senate driver’s seat.  Charlie Cook of The Cook Political Report even speculated on MSNBC’s Hardball it’s possible that we might “see no Republican incumbent, House or Senate, lose” in 2010.

A Republican majority in the US Senate is now a very real possibility after the 2010 elections.

Democrat Congressmen were badly beaten up in town hall meetings throughout the summer and early fall as the push for Obama’s government takeover of the US health care system intensified.  But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) squeezed out a 5-vote victory for the Socialization of 1/6 of the US economy in November.  It took every bit of political strength she had to twist the arms of enough Democrats from conservative districts to stand with her and the ultra-liberal wing of her party.  Some of these Dems are already announcing plans not to run for re-election this year, and others who had been recruited by the DNCC to run against Republican incumbents have already dropped out of their races as well.  It’s almost certain that Democrats will lose a substantial number of seats in November, but there may be an even more immediate consequence of Brown’s victory on the US House.

Pelosi may no longer be able to muster her razor thin majority to pass the reconciled bill that will come out of the secret, behind-closed-doors meetings being held to iron out the differences in the two chambers’ health care bills.

President Obama dithered on whether or not to make the trip to Massachusetts to campaign for Coakley until Sunday.  Finally, two days before the election, the President took Air Force One to Boston in an effort to motivate Democrats to get out the vote for Coakley.  After campaigning for losing gubernatorial candidates in Virginia and New Jersey last fall, Obama had to know this was a huge gamble.  All along, he has counted on his political capital to sway Democrats with conservative constituencies to vote for his left-wing policies. Virginia and New Jersey were strikes one and two, Massachusetts proved to be strike three.

Obama’s inability to secure a Coakley victory in the deep blue Bay State has greatly compromised his ability to convince nervous Democrats they’re better off voting with him than their constituents.  He’s now running very low on political capital.

Chairman of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele has already sent out a fund-raising letter calling Brown’s victory “our Party’s first victory of 2010.”  But in his victory speech, Scott Brown was careful not to credit the Republican party, but the independent voters of Massachusetts for his victory. “Tonight the independent majority has delivered a great victory,” Brown said.

Checking the several blogs on the GOP’s website, not one article appears promoting Brown’s candidacy in the past two weeks.  Not one article asking supporters to help elect a Republican candidate to Ted Kennedy’s old seat.  Even RNC press releases over the last couple of weeks make no mention of the critical race.  But now that Brown won, Steele hopes to siphon off some of the energy to convert it to funds for the RNC.

Brown realizes his victory was not an endorsement of the Republican establishment, but a rejection of the Democrat establishment.  Michael Steele and the RNC haven’t yet figured that out.

Although the Republican party did little to help make Brown’s victory possible, conservative activists across the nation did, especially on the internet.  Practically every conservative activist site we keep tabs on was consistently and continuously promoting Brown’s candidacy.  Participants on these sites form the core of the rallies and town halls that slowed down Obama’s wave of Socialism when the Republican party could not.  These are the people who participate in the Tea Parties and organize protests against Congressmen and Senators who refused to listen to their constituents.

The Tea Party movement has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming congressional elections.  The GOP better be careful not to take these conservative activists’ votes for granted, but must instead make concessions to once again win their trust.

In summary, Democrats with conservative constituencies have now been put on notice.  The American people demand to be represented and not ruled!  The Republican hierarchy will be tempted to believe they achieved this victory and seek to exploit it when in fact, the GOP can take very little credit for Brown’s victory.   Tea Party activists should pat themselves on the back and congratulate themselves for a job well don.  But don’t get too comfortable.

Our challenge now will be two-fold.  First, to continue the fight to remove those representatives who have refused to represent their constituents.  But we must also now be careful to hold the Republican party accountable, and avoid being used by the establishment.  The establishment led us into the abyss from which we’ve fought so hard to extract ourselves these past few months.  Those of us who’ve participated in and believe in the Tea Party movement must continue to fight for reform in the Republican party.

For now though, congratulations.  We’ve fought long and hard to achieve this victory.

Many thanks to all who made this possible.  To Scott Brown.  To the Massachusetts voters.  And to all of those across the country who donated their time and money to help achieve this victory!

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz: Voters Should Cheat to Beat Brown

Hat Tip: ARRA News Service

On his radio show January 15, Ed Schultz encouraged Massachusetts voters to “vote 10 times if they could” in order to defeat Republican Scott Brown who’s challenging Democrat Martha Coakley for the Massachusetts Senate seat vacated when long-time Senator Ted “Lady Killer” Kennedy died last year. Referring to Brown and other Republicans as “these Bastards,” Schultz demonstrated the liberal bias prevalent at MSNBC that has led to the left-wing network’s plummeting ratings.

And Then There Were None

By Debra J. Saunders at Townhall.com

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Campbell announced Thursday that he is dropping out of the California GOP gubernatorial primary and instead will run against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Last year, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom bowed out of the Democratic gubernatorial primary, leaving former governor and current Attorney General Jerry Brown as the only Democrat in the race — and he has yet to announce that he is running.

Come to think of it, former Lt. Gov. John Garamendi also dropped out of the Democratic gubernatorial primary to run for (and win) Rep. Ellen Tauscher’s vacated seat. The governor’s race is starting to look like an Agatha Christie story, where all the characters get bumped off one by one. Call it: “And Then There Were None.”

Campbell knows that some supporters are disappointed that he won’t remain in the governor’s race. Some had this fantasy that he would best the two moneybags in the race, much as Gray Davis beat Democrat richies Al Checchi and Jane Harman in 1998.

Sorry, Campbell explained, he was “not within hailing distance” of winning because he raised only about $1 million last year. By contrast, the two gazillionaires each tossed $19 million into their campaign coffers as if it were tip money.

As Democratic political guru Darry Sragow noted, people forget “in the telling of the story, Gray did have enough money to make his presence felt.” Campbell wasn’t in Davis’ fundraising league.

There is also a nostalgia element to the switch. In 1992, Campbell lost the GOP primary to Bruce Herschensohn, who then lost the general election to Boxer. According to conventional lore, if the more moderate Campbell had won the primary, Boxer never would have won her Senate seat.

Join the fight against Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Lincoln, Frank and Hagan!

When facing a seemingly overwhelming opponent, it’s tough to step up and enter the ring.  And our opposition seems overwhelming at times without a doubt.

With a 60 vote supermajority in the US Senate and a 78 vote majority in the House of Representatives, resistance can at times seem futile.  But resist we must, and victory might not prove as elusive as it appears at first glance.

Conservatives have learned from the mistakes of the past decade, mistakes that allowed Barack Obama and the Democrat machine to dominate the new political arena in 2008.  But conservative Americans took note, and took the lead in implementing the parts of Obama’s strategy that propelled him to victory in ’08.  And we’ve made great strides.

The Tea Parties that sprung forth last year give evidence to the effectiveness of the new conservative strategy.  Even with Obama’s super majorities, we were able to delay much of his agenda.  In the wake of the election, Democrats thought they were in for smooth sailing for at least four years.  But they quickly learned the Silent Majority hadn’t perished, only slept while Democrats lied and connived to weasel their way into power.

No sooner than they were sworn in, they began to shed their sheep’s clothing and their true wolfish selves were revealed.  Record debt, spending, and deficits contradicted their promises of fiscal responsibility on the campaign trail.  Then came job killing legislation that broke their promises to create jobs for Americans.  Democrats then chose to ignore the country’s economic woes (that they had already exacerbated), instead pursuing a budget busting health care bill that finally brought Americans’ blood to a boil.

Supposedly centrist Democrats no longer represented the conservative districts from whence they came, but instead did the bidding of President Obama (D), Speaker Pelosi (D-CA), and Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) in all of these legislative endeavors.  Democrats from coast to coast joined in the march to Socialism for America.

But yesterday we saw proof that the political winds have shifted and we must now make sail and take full advantage.  In one day, a conservative Republican candidate for Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat in Massachusetts raised over $1 Million in an online fundraiser.  Lt. Col. Scott Brown led liberal MA Attorney General Martha Coakley by one point in poll recently, in a race for a seat Democrats never thought they could lose!

Western Representation PAC has launched a coordinated attack on several liberal Senators and Representatives for the 2010 election cycle.  The initial stage of this attack consisted of sponsoring the Facebook pages The Campaign Against Nancy Pelosi, The Campaign Against Harry Reid, The Campaign Against Barbara Boxer, The Campaign Against Barney Frank, The Campaign Against Chris Dodd, The Campaign Against Blanche Lincoln, and The Campaign Against Kay Hagan.  Already, over 20,000 have joined WRPAC’s ranks, and Chris Dodd has already announced he won’t run next year.

We need bodies and we encourage all to become fans of WRPAC‘s pages.  But, funds are also necessary to wage this war.  WRPAC’s goal is to eventually fund advertising and campaigns for candidates who support your values, who will represent you in Washington.  And these campaigns require funding.  This is why WRPAC has launched its own 24 hour online fundraising and membership drive today.

We realize times are tough, and not everyone can support the cause financially.  If you can’t, please do your part by helping us recruit more supporters.  But if you can spare even a little; $5, $10, whatever you can spare, it will help and your donation will not be going to fight only one candidate, but several liberal zealots from coast to coast.

So please join WRPAC’s pages as a fan and donate whatever you can.

Together we can take this country back!

Liberals Terrified, Scott Brown Leads!

“Nobody Made A Greater Mistake Than He Who Did Nothing Because He Could Only Do a Little.” -Edmund Burke

Last week we let you know how you can help elect Lt. Col. Scott Brown (R) to Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat in Massachusetts, and you responded!  Brad Marston, another patriot from MA who’s working to get Brown elected was impressed by your response and left the following comment on that post:

Wow! Thank you so much for posting this. We lost the Public Policy poll vote (Those Ron Paul folks are good) but people can still make phone calls and of course donate if you can.

You can watch Scott’s latest ad at https://www.icontribute.us/scottbrown/initiative/truck

Thank you all.

Dozens of you responded to Brad’s calls for donations and volunteers!  And your efforts are resulting in huge gains in this battle for our American way of life.  But we musn’t rest on our laurels now, for Liberal politicians are already plotting to subvert the will of Massachusetts voters when they lose this battle!

Soon after we posted last week, Rasmussen released a poll showing Brown trailing MA Attorney General Martha Coakley 50-41, but today the landscape has changed dramatically.  Left-leaning pollster Tom Jensen with Public Policy Polling released numbers yesterday that have him in a state of near panic.  Brown now leads Coakley 48-47 in the race!

Jensen points to the fact that Republicans are far more motivated to vote in this election than Democrats, and that Brown leads with independents by a stunning 63-31 margin.  This in one of the  most liberal states in the Union.  Jensen then goes on to enumerate steps he believes can overcome  Brown’s positives, which largely depend on motivating the Democrat base in MA.

Now, high ranking MA Democrats are promising to delay implementing the will of the Bay State’s voters when Brown wins next Tuesday!  Paul Kirk (D-MA), who was appointed in a shady move to repeal MA law to give the Obama-Pelosi-Reid axis their 60 vote majority in the Senate, declares “We want to get this resolved before President Obama’s State of the Union address in early to mid-February,” speaking of completing work on the unconstitutional health care bill.

But, Kirk and Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin are conspiring to ignore the voters when Brown wins next week’s election.  Brian McNiff, a Galvin spokesman, told the Boston Herald, “We’d have to wait 10 days for absentee and military ballots to come in.”  And another Herald source states the results of next Tuesday’s election won’t be certified before February 20th.

Long enough that Kirk and other Democrat conspirators hope President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi will have told Massachusetts voters “It doesn’t matter what they want or think or vote for, our ruling Democrats will do whatever the Hell they want and the voters can be damned if they don’t agree!”  Because that’s exactly what passage of Obamacare will mean if Brown wins this election.

The message is clear from Democrats:  “Massachusetts voters don’t matter, we’ll do what the Hell we want regardless of the outcome of the election!”

But Obama, Pelosi, and Reid aren’t accounting for the shock wave that will run through Democrat ranks in Congress when Republican Scott Brown wins the seat occupied so long by the ultra-liberal Ted Kennedy!  Democrats took this race for granted because, after all, we’re talking Massachusetts here.  The state where champions of the left Barney Frank and Ted Kennedy couldn’t lose!

A victory by a Republican here, in what some might consider the heart of liberal America, would put every left-leaning liberal Democrat on notice:  “Vote for Obamacare at your political peril!”

And Democrats are scared!

“It would be unconscionable for the seat held for 40 years by the inestimable Senator Kennedy to be allowed to pass to an enemy of everything he stood for.” “Massachusetts is a progressive state, always has been, always will be. Scott Brown is the antithesis of a progressive. He has no business running in this state. …His election would be an insult to Kennedy’s memory.” ~Harry Reid (D-NV)~

A Brown victory may even turn some progressive Democrats from supporting this bill that WILL increase taxes AND raise health insurance premiums, that WILL make taxpayers responsible for abortions, that WILL increase the deficit, that WILL result in the rationing of health care (especially for seniors), and that WILL eventually cover illegal aliens!

That’s why it’s essential conservatives across the country rally behind and support Lt. Col. Scott Brown’s campaign for US Senate!  Now’s the time to donate what you can.  Even if it’s only $5, please donate what you can.  Now’s the time to volunteer.  Even if you can only make a couple of calls a day.

This race could be the hinge that allows the door to begin to swing the other way. Please step up and help however you can!
