TO DO List for Obama, Pelosi, and Reid

October 24, 2008 1 comment

From the voting records and speeches of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, we have put together a list of items we believe are likely to be on their TO DO list.

It’s an open-ended list, and we’d like to hear from you with your suggestions. Can you think of things to be added?

The MAINSTREAM media (NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NPR, New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Time, Newsweek, etc.) have lost all claim to objectivity. They are doing everything they can to help elect Obama and give Democrats stronger control of Congress.

Because most of the national media have become an arm of the Democratic campaign, it is up to those of us who don’t support their radical left-wing agenda to do the work that the mainstream media refuses to do.

If tens of thousands of us decide to act as grassroots publishers and get this information to others, we will reach more people than the mainstream media.

All you need to do to be a grassroots publishing mogul is think of a list of people that you can send this information to using the post office, faxes, and e-mails.

If you make copies of this and send via postal mail, fax, or e-mail to 100 people, and if only 10% of those 100 also become a grassroots publisher and send to 100 people, that’s 1,000 people you’ve reached.

Then, if 10% of those 1,000 send to 100 people, that’s 10,000 people you’ve reached by being a grassroots publisher.

Now, if we just take it one more step and 10% of those 10,000 become like you, a grassroots publisher, then you’ve reached 100,000 Americans probably in less than a week by just sending this e-mail to 100 people. Of course, if you were to send it to hundreds of people today, within a week, your grassroots publishing efforts could reach hundreds of thousands.

P.S. If you are as upset as I am about the mainstream media’s coverage of the campaign, go to

  3. Increasing the capital gains tax, which will reduce investments and new jobs.
  4. Increasing the estate (death) tax, leaving more to the government and less for your children and grandchildren.

  27. Passing “hate crime” laws that would put ministers and others in jail for criticizing homosexual behavior.

Be sure to forward this message to as many people as you can.

Richard Viguerie – She’s perfect

With VP pick, McCain “unites the GOP, gives conservatives a stake in the election, and puts a real reformer on the ticket”
 
(Minneapolis, MN) The selection of Governor Sarah Palin as John McCain’s vice presidential running mate unites the Republican Party and energizes its conservative base, Richard A. Viguerie said.
 
“McCain has chosen to balance his ticket with a principled conservative. Governor Palin’s life story is one of sticking to principle. She is living proof that a person can take on the corrupt political establishment – including corrupt leaders in her own party – and achieve great things,” he said.
 
Viguerie, the Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, added: “There’s an old expression in politics: Go along to get along. Not this time. The selection of Sarah Palin is one big kick-in-the-pants to the corrupt establishment in both parties.
 
“Congratulations to John McCain for hearing and responding to conservatives. Conservatives, the base of the party, have been listless. But, now, nearly all will work enthusiastically for the McCain-Palin ticket. In fact, this is the most enthusiastic conservatives have been since the era for Ronald Reagan.”
 
He concluded: “This is a grand-slam home run. Conservatives’ feet haven’t touched the ground since this announcement.”

An Open Letter to John McCain‏

An Open Letter from Richard Viguerie to John McCain:
Conservatives Can Also Play the Maverick Game

(Manassas, Virginia) The following is an open letter from Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, to Senator John McCain in regard to news reports that the Republican presidential candidate may select a vice presidential running mate who supports abortions rights:

Dear Senator McCain:

The buzz in recent days has been that some of your key aides were calling national and state GOP leaders to alert them to the possibility that you were seriously considering a pro-abortion running mate and to take their temperature on such a selection.

As Dan Henninger of the Wall Street Journal asked: Are you politically “stupid” or do you care little for conservative principles?

It also shows that you don’t understand why the Republican brand has taken a massive beating in recent years. You clearly don’t comprehend why millions of conservatives are off the Republican reservation and sitting on the political sidelines.

Your indication that you’re willing to put a person who has a clear, unequivocal pro-abortion record within a heartbeat of the presidency is alarming.

Pro-life conservatives understand that, to change the laws to protect innocent life, first and foremost, we need good, articulate leadership–from the president and vice president.

To put it as simply and clearly as I can, most Republican leaders at the national and state level have betrayed, abandoned, and sold out the principles that define conservatism. Talk of selecting a pro-abortion liberal Republican (Tom Ridge) or, even worse, a pro-abortion liberal Democrat (Joe Lieberman) drives the Republican brand lower and lower.

Your apparent interest in selecting a running mate who is out of sync ideologically with the vast majority of conservatives reinforces the image of the Republican Party as a party without principle and dedicated to one proposition above all others – the seeking, acquiring, obtaining, and holding onto power.

Senator McCain, you are exceedingly proud of being a political maverick – you wear it as a badge of honor.

Well, poke the base of the Republican Party – the conservatives – in the eye one more time by choosing a pro-abortion vice presidential candidate and conservatives will show you that two can play the maverick game.

Conservatives are people with proudly held principles. We’re now waiting to see if you share our principles.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Viguerie
Chairman, ConservativeHQ.com

Stevens Indictment Symptomatic of Culture of Corruption in Politics

FOR RELEASE July 29, 2008

Richard Viguerie:
Stevens Indictment Symptomatic of Culture of Corruption in Politics

            (Manassas, VA) The indictment of Senator Ted Stevens, the senior Republican in the U.S. Senate, is “just a symptom of the corruption that has infected Republicans and Democrats alike,” Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, said.

            “That infection is spreading rapidly through Washington and all of American politics, from the houses of Congress to the courthouses.”

“Sometimes, as in the ethanol subsidy program, or the bailout of the crooked mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the level of corruption is so large that it’s hard for the mind to grasp. It’s like an Enron a day,” he said.

Said Viguerie: “There used to be hardly a day that passed without some new story of a politician who had abused the public trust. But now it seems to be happening several times a day, somewhere in this country, that a politician is indicted, or going off to jail, or resigning to avoid prosecution.

“In 2006, the image of congressional Republicans as corrupt was a major factor in their loss of control of Congress. Since then, the Democrats are turning out to be just as bad, but the Republicans have done little to clean up their act.”

Viguerie noted that Republican reformers who have stood up to the GOP establishment have been targeted for retaliation.

“Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, politicians of all stripes should understand that, since they won’t take action to clean up their own houses, the American people will do it for them,” he said.

Richard Viguerie: Huckabee Proves Again He’s No Conservative

(Manassas, Virginia) Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, released the following statement regarding Mike Huckabee’s endorsement of Alaska Congressman Don Young in a contested Republican primary against Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell:

“Mike Huckabee claims he’s a conservative, but his actions show just the opposite. The latest proof is his endorsement of Congressman Don Young in Alaska’s Republican Primary.

“Ever since he won the Iowa caucuses, I’ve been warning my fellow conservatives that Huckabee is a Christian socialist. He’s good on social issues but was the most liberal of all the Republican presidential candidates on economic issues.

“Huckabee’s Huck PAC is supporting Young against Sean Parnell, a principled conservative. I doubt that very few of the contributors to Huck PAC knew their money would end up helping Young’s re-election campaign.

“Young, who is under federal investigation for illegal gratuities and unreported gifts, is a world-class porker, infamous for his Bridge to Nowhere and hundreds of millions in other earmarks.

“Young is an essential part of the massive culture of corruption in politics that runs hand-and-glove with Big Government and is causing almost all Americans to lose confidence in Congress.”
