On May 12, 2009, The National Republican Senatorial Committee betrayed its mission, betrayed Republican voters, and betrayed the Reagan legacy.
The NRSC sided with an establishment candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in a Senate primary against young conservative leader, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.
Republicans across the country were outraged by this action, which is only the latest betrayal of grassroots conservatives by the out-of-touch GOP elite in Washington.
The word went forth among conservative activists: Do not give money to the NRSC. The current chairman, Sen. John Cornyn, must resign. His replacement must pledge to keep the committee neutral in contested primaries. Let Republican voters -- not party elites -- choose Republican candidates.
This is where the conservative grassroots rebellion begins. When the NRSC asks you for money, tell 'em:
NOT ONE RED CENT!
UPDATE: On June 27, eight Republican members of the House voted "yes" for Nancy Pelosi's top legislative priority, the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill. Until these eight RINOs are terminated -- by retirement or by defeat in the GOP primaries -- then the National Republican Congressional Committee deserves the same answer:
We need hold every Republican who is elected to the same standard we do the socialists. It is no longer acceptable to cast your personal vote and then sit in front of a ballgame leaving the country to those we elect. We must educate ourselves to the issues at hand and watch closely how they vote because we have learned that the far left have not only hijacked the Democrat party, they have infiltrated the GOP as well. Great picture.ReplyDelete
