America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

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!

GM sending bailout money to Korea


Digg!
#TCOT #diggcons

You would have thought General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner would have learned a little about the value of PR last November.  Flying to DC to beg for taxpayer money aboard a private jet almost cost him and the other little piggies their bailout cash.  Evidently he didn’t learn a thing.

In an announcement at Detroit’s North American International Auto Show today, Little Piggy Wagoner announced that GM would bypass an American supplier to spend our money in Korea.  The battery cells for GM’s long overdue Chevy Volt, will be purchased from LG Chem in Korea.  LG Chem and Massachussetts based A123 Systems/Continental were competing for the contract.  I wonder what Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) thinks of the bailout now that GM is bypassing a Massachussets company and sending his constituents’ jobs overseas. 

Now, I’m a free market/free trade fan and if these were normal times I wouldn’t raise a fuss about this.  However, these aren’t normal times and last month’s auto company bailout cast off any semblance of GM operating under free market/free trade principles.

Recall, we were told the bailout of GM and Chrysler was essential to save American jobs and prevent an imminent collapse of our economy if these two went under.  In this video, Wagoner claims the bailout will “preserve many jobs, and support the continued operation of GM and the many suppliers, dealers and small businesses across the country that depend on our company and our industry.”  The following is a Bush quote from an article in the Dallas Morning News after the bailout was announced.  (emphasis added)

“By giving the auto companies a chance to restructure, we will shield the American people from a harsh economic blow at a vulnerable time,” the president said. “And we will give American workers an opportunity to show the world once again that they can meet challenges with ingenuity and determination, and emerge stronger than before.”

This would be understandable if the A123 batteries just couldn’t cut it, but that’s not the case.  GM’s vice-chairman, Bob Lutz says the A123 product was “very good.” 

That’s not the worst part.

Lutz went on to blame the US government for GM’s choice of a foreign supplier, saying Detroit isn’t the problem, Washington is.  His rationale?  The US government hasn’t spent enough money on research to develop battery technology.  He goes on saying this “is part of the penalty we pay in the U.S. for not having a well-funded R&D budget.”

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!  Can you believe the arrogance of these jerks running GM?

They come begging from us, telling everyone that will listen the US economy is dependent on them and we must fill their coffers to save our jobs, save our economy.  Then, they have the gall to send that money overseas and tell us its our fault!

GM management still doesn’t get it.  They’re dependent on us, the US taxpayers/consumers.  This latest PR boondoggle is going to use up whatever good will the American taxpayer has for this US icon.  I’ve bought nothing but GM vehicles for the past 15 years, and now I’ll probably never buy another.

Congress shouldn’t give the idiots running GM another dime.  The only hope for this American icon’s survival is bankruptcy.  The GM Board of Directors should be ousted for leaving incompetent Little Piggy Wagoner in charge and paying him millions of dollars to lose billions of the company’s money.  Wagoner and the rest of GM’s management should be replaced with a team that understands that without customers, there’s no chance of success.
