The Clock Is Ticking

I don't know how many "Tea-ers" read Dick Morris. He has a site and his newsletter are free. Below is a sample of his news letter and clearly this politically conservative man is excited about what he believes is happening for the GOP candidates. We find it helpful in a number of ways. His links to these candidates
So I know who and where to send money.

I have spent the last ten days out on the campaign trail in Colorado, Virginia, and Arkansas. Under the aegis of Americans for Prosperity, a conservative voter education group, I have been preaching the gospel that we cannot tolerate big spending liberals in Congress and that we need to elect conservatives who will oppose higher taxes.

The crowds and the enthusiasm have been simply amazing. One thousand in Denver. Four thousand in Arkansas. Fifteen hundred in Virginia. I have frequently worked in these states, but never have seen anything close to this level of commitment, interest and enthusiasm.

But it is worthwhile to review the individual races in these states. They are crucial and, combined, could give the Republicans seven of the thirty-nine seats they need to take power in the House.

In Colorado, Republican Cory Gardner, http://www.corygardner.com, has an excellent chance of defeating Democratic incumbent Betsy Markey. Democrat John Salazar, the Interior Secretary's brother, faces the loss of his Congressional seat in the western part of the state to Republican Scott Tipton, http://votetipton.com/fix-america, a businessman who has built a huge and successful business selling Native American crafts and art throughout the world. Tipton employs hundreds of Native Americans and, at the same time, helps keep their culture alive and make it marketable. In the Denver area, a young, articulate, charismatic, brilliant, black Republican Ryan Frazier, http://www.frazierforcolorado.com, faces Democratic Congressman Ed Pearlmutter. He has a good chance of winning and deserves our support. This guy could be our answer to Barack Obama!

In Arkansas, the situation is just as positive. Democratic Congressman Mike Ross deserves a special place in Dante's inferno for voting to pass Obamacare in committee, where his vote was the decisive one. Then, having passed on the opportunity to kill the bill when he could have, he blithely voted against it twice on the floor when his vote didn't matter so he could fool his district into believing that he is a conservative. His opponent, Republican Beth Anne Rankin, http://www.bethannerankinforcongress.com, - a former Miss Arkansas - amassed a very strong record getting federal grants for Arkansas and developing innovative programs for education. If there is one race that deserves your support - and needs your donations - this is it!

There are two Democrats in Arkansas who chickened out and retired. Both of their seats are likely Republican pickups. The more certain of the two is Republican Tim Griffin, http://www.timgriffinforcongress.com, who will likely win the Little Rock seat while military veteran and Republican Rick Crawford (he defused bombs in the Afghan area) will battle a career Washington Democratic staffer in the eastern part of the state. Give to Crawford at http://www.meetrickcrawford.com/. He deserves to win!

In Virginia, Republican State Senator Robert Hurt will probably defeat ultra-liberal Tom Periello, a Soros favorite. In a straight out contest of liberal vs. a conservative, Hurt needs support. Give to Hurt at http://www.roberthurtforcongress.com.

As the campaign unfolds, I will be sending these bulletins from the front to call attention to particularly deserving Republican candidates. I hope you will respond frequently and generously.

Like our country depended on it!

Enough said….BUT do you ever wonder why this kind of important information never appears on the national news media.

Come November…Come November, come with us and support these conservative candidates no matter where ever they are running.

A note from Lee

Lee Iacocca, the man who the government turned to when Chrysler Corporation needed rescuing from its death throes now at 82 years old, has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?' and still wants to help the country where he can.

Lee Iacocca Says:

Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me the economy is getting better...'

Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned 'Titanic.' I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out along with Obama!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore.

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan, Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for.

I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot
if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have.

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving. But our soldiers are dying daily.

We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting worse every day!

We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas prices are going to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers union.

Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and free healthcare.

The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.

These are times that cry out for leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?'

Where are the curious, creative communicators?
Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point.


Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy... Deal with life!

Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!

Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.

I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America . In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.

It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!!

Lee

Well clearly this leader has not thrown in the towel.

Come November…Come November come with us and let us elect new leaders.
