A Call To Action











There will be a special election in New York’s 20th Congressional District on March 31st.  This is the election to replace Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand who took over Hillary’s Senate seat.  The candidates are Scott Murphy (D) and Jim Tedisco (R).  This Upstate New York district has been traditionally Republican.  Voters in the district elected Gillibrand in 2006 over Republican John Sweeney who had a detestable ethical track record.  Sweeney was linked to Abramoff and was into the whole DWI/domestic violence BS.  No wonder.

The point of this post is not to trash Sweeney (good riddance).  It’s a call to action.  This special election has enormous implications. Jim Tedisco is a guy we need in Congress.  The GOP grassroots is being asked to heed the call and donate to Tedisco.  I’m going to donate, and I hope everyone else will as well. 

 Murphy is dangerous and will goosestep with Nancy Pelosi in the House.  I have a hard time believing that the good folks of New York’s 20th Congressional District would elect someone like Scott Murphy. Consider this –

As a Senior Editor for the Harvard Perspective, Murphy approved and signed onto this garbage regarding the ROTC:

The values enforced by the military — submission to authority, unquestioning obedience, and a hierarchy of power — are contrary to the University’s values of independence, thoughtful inquiry, and equality for all.”

“Bringing ROTC on campus is not the best way of helping the economically disadvantaged.”

“We, as editors of Perspective, firmly believe all people should have the right to choose whether or not to be in the military, but we believe a university must not sanction a philosophy that is founded on an unquestioning submission to authority.”

Pure trash.  And it gets better from here –

Scott Murphy, the Democrat running for New York’s 20th open seat, is sure to be wincing at all the attention on President Obama’s appointment picks who failed to pay their taxes.

Murphy is opposing Republican Jim Tedisco for the seat vacated by Democratic Rep. Kristin Gillibrand and the GOP already has their hands full of opposition research.

The New York Department of Taxation put out a lien in Murphy’s Small World Software Company in 1999 for $20,805. He paid up but the state had two other liens, worth about $750 combined, still outstanding.

The National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee issued a statement saying Murphy was “taking lessons in tax evasion from his party’s elite.”

Hilarious.  I guess if things don’t go well for Murphy in this House race – he can always grab a seat in Obama’s cabinet. Maybe Undersecretary of the Treasury under Tim Geithner. 

The point here is – this special election is important.  The Conservative Revolution has been launched.  This is our first chance to prove that we are serious. 

 Yeah….so what?  A dumb special election in upstate New York.  Doesn’t matter, right?  


If we are going to have any essence of momentum going into 2010, we have to start somewhere.  This is ground zero.  If you are happy with Obama, Reid and Pelosi – ignore it.  If not, get up off your asses and do something.  It’s time to mobilize folks.  No more sitting on the sidelines.  Our nation is about to slide into socialist obscurity.  And our only recourse is to slow this with the Congressional elections of 2010. 

This special election is a precursor to 2010.  We need to start now. The GOP grassroots is asking for $20 in the effort.  That’s not a lot in the grand scheme of things and considering the ramifications of the Democrat stranglehold on this nation. Go here to donate please.

  1. I am submitting my donation now as we speak.

    Even though political donations are not deductible.

    Speaking of which, charitable contributions and mortgage interest deductions will be wiped away from folks making over $250K per year.

    One year of filing income taxes in 2010 is really all we will need.

  2. “Speaking of which, charitable contributions and mortgage interest deductions will be wiped away from folks making over $250K per year.

    No mortgage interest deduction? That’s really smart; NOT. That will make the housing crisis worse. Part of the value in a home is the benefit of the mortgage interest deduction.

    $250K per year? That might be big money in Utah or North Dakota. Where I live it is not.

    What about people who experience an infrequent and not likely to repeat bump in income?

    As I posted over the weekend, one of my friends earned through working $3,000,000 last year. He is in the scientific field. He normally earns about $100 to $200K per year depending on the bonus. He knows this $3,000,000 year is his “lottery win”. It is not likely to happen again. Since he had to pay 42% out in taxes I bet he hopes it doesn’t happen again.

    So people who experience a one time or infrequent windfalll get slammed by the IRS? What a disincentive to earn more money.

    I am sure Steve can backt this next one up. When taxes increase, noncompliance increases.

  3. The military doesn’t question authority?

    They do it all the time, I was in the military it’s half of what they do all day. The only difference is when you do it there you had better have your facts and logic strait.

    It’s also why they have something called a lawful and unlawful order and you better know the difference.

  4. Thanks Steve. It’s really important that we do this.

    We had a couple of positive special election victories earlier this year. We need to keep it going. Our next challenges will be the off-year gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey. Things look good in Virginia. A little tougher but not impossible in NJ. I’ll keep everyone posted.

  5. I’m with Steve on this one–all it’ll take is one year of filing taxes and the Democrats will lose a lot of ground.

    I couldn’t believe, though, when I read the news that Steele agreed with DL Hughley that the GOP convention looked like “Nazi Germany” and that Rush was just an “entertainer.” There is no quicker way to alienate the conservative base than to even jokingly agree with that kind of crap.
