There was a convergence of sorts for me today. Whilst twittering away for #FF (Follow Fridays) I noticed on of my new tweeps, Right Klik was touting a new idea called Ten Buck Fridays which was actually the brain child of Conscientiously Conservative who writes:
Ten Buck Fridays started today for me. I donated $10 to Teresa Collett’s campaign for 4th Congressional District in Minnesota. Many of us get paid on Fridays… if we bring a sack lunch a couple of times a week to work, right there is an extra tenner. What if conservatives donated $10 each and every week up through November to viable candidates and/or PAC’s that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you can’t afford every week, what about twice a month? Or once a month? Conservatives need to put their money where their mouth is. Commit to Ten Buck Fridays… it WILL make a difference come November!
What a great idea! Right Klik modified the idea a bit (I think) by adding a nomination factor, which also has some merit. The main point being that it’s only ten bucks a week or two for a good cause. For THE greatest cause of our lives, if you ask me, which you didn’t but hey, I’m doing the typing here. You’ll get your turn in the comment section. Settle down over there.
The convergence happened when I got my subscription email from Bob Belvedere’s site (You do subscribe to TCOTS don’t you?) announcing that he, Stacy McCain and a host of other bloggers are jumping on a RINO Killer’s Grassroots Money Bomb. Christina O’Donnell’s supporters are asking for some help over there, so I’ll be donating to that campaign shortly.
The point is, however you chose to participate, whatever level of financial assistance you can afford, now is the time to commit. We can not afford to slack now. We must put our money where our mouths are and support conservative candidates. What we cannot afford to do is allow the Republican machine to select those RINO’s as our only choices. As far as I am concerned, a RINO is no more use to us than a Progressive Democrat if we expect to affect real change in Washington.
I can’t remember where I saw it or heard it but this is the truth: You can’t change government without changing the people in government.
Get involved. Campaigns cost money.
Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that Christina O’Donnell is kid-of hot. But then, conservative wimmin will always have the edge with this robo-love machine.
UPDATE: Right Klik offers another idea in the comments:
Anyone who likes the “Ten Buck Fridays” idea, please consider labeling your online donation with “Ten Buck Fridays” in one of the optional fields.
Just full of ideas, this Right Klik.
Hey, have you ever cleaned an oil spill? Just wonderin’ cause, you know, someone we’re both acquainted with desperately needs a clue.
