Let's Withhold Donations From The NRSC And The RNC Until They Move On This Filibuster Fiasco!

Posted on 05/11/2005 6:01:36 AM PDT by conservativecorner

The National Republican Senatorial Committee deserves not a single cent for the job our senators are doing, and the RNC is so quiet that the Sprint Man thinks no one is there. My money will go the National Republican Congressional Committee because they represent what the party is about, and they aren't afraid to move on a contriversial issue.

Here's the NRCC'S homepage.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: 2006; 2006elections; aliens; borders; byebyemajority; frist; illegals; judges; not1moredime; rnc

Same here. And it's not just the fillabuster issue, there's also our borders/immigration, out-of-control spending, and just basically being a spineless majority.

I did the same thing this week. Instead of throwing their junk mail into the garbage, please write them a note, and return the mail with no $$$$$$$$$. How long do you think it would take before they got the message? Not long because they depend on dedicated supporters to run the committee, and I'm sick of sending donations while they all suck up to moderates and liberals. Let the supporters of Snowe, Voinibitch, Chafee and McCrazy send in the donations from now on. I'm done!

I've been doing that for weeks now. Every call I get and every mailing I receive I respond to with "N0 Judges =No Money".

I even called up the Finance Director at the National GOP office and asked him to remove my name from their lists because a majority party acting like a minority party didn't need my contributions.

Here's my email message to these bozos...

For what it's worth, I (along with millions of other seniors) have worked very hard getting our republican majority in place. BUT now, we see that majority acting weak kneed and showing no leadership in support of our president's policies and our conservative values.

Until we see the republican leadership step up to the plate and put a stop to the minority gamesmanship, we have NO INTENTION of contributing on dime of our money, or one minute of our time to support a 'do nothing' republican congress.

Please understand what I am saying, because I am not alone out here in this world of seniors!

No problem. I make it a practice never to donate to the party or its committees. Conservative candidates only.

I've done the same thing. We got a mailing with two "pledge" cards and envelopes for May and June. Sending them a note stating no more money from us until judges are confirmed, borders are closed and they start acting like the majority party and take control of the Senate.

Too late. I'm already withholding donations for several reasons of which Ken Mehlman has been informed:

1. Hagel, Voinovich and Chafee voting "NO" on the Bolton nomination:
2. Pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage Jo Ann Davidson named co-chair of the RNC;
3. RINO McCain claiming he will vote "NO" on the nuclear option;
4. Supercreep Chris Shays' public statement that DeLay should step down;
5. Connecticut's approval of de facto gay marriage.

Now I can add Mexican Social Security to the list. I'm giving serious consideration to renouncing my membership in the Republican Party since I cannot morally support many of their recent actions (or inactions) and, also, since they are ineffective, lazy, self-possessed and cowardly. I will support individuals with whom I agree, all of which are currently Republicans, but not a cent for the RNC to distribute to those who hold my ideals in contempt.

The last request I received I wrote a letter directly to Ken Mehlman telling him that I would no longer contribute to any Republican national committee because my contribution might go to RINO's like Specter (sp), Chaffee, McCain and others. I will donate directly to conservative candidates that reflect my views. Until the Republicans a) secure the borders, b) approve judges, and c) control spending, they won't see another dollar of my money.

Direct to conservatives or funneled through the Club for Growth.

I get solicited by mail from the RNC and about every conservative PAC.

Since they have furnished me a prepaid evelope for my donation, I use it to mail back their solicitation with a bold

"SECURE OUR BORDER!!"

I already do. I got a survey from some republican group and they wanted to know if I was in favor of them increasing their budget (by getting a donation from me) to help fight off moveon.org. I checked the No box and told them to be real conservatives and to live within their means. Also, I wrote I wouldn't send them any money till they approved the judges and secured the borders.

Done it. I've stopped giving to any GOP / RNC / PAC's. If THEY can't put the pressure on the sitting wigs in Congress and get the message through that apparently we can't, nor has our hard work ensured, then, they all should be dumped. Act like the majority, AND, do what you were elected to do, or face losing the whole ball of wax in 2006. This time, YOUR JOB IS ON THE LINE. Act or be unemployed. That simple. You all in if the shoe were on the other foot, the Democrats WOULD NOT have let 6 months of grass of a majority grow under their feet on this. As far as I'm concerned, this Senate is diddling around WASTING time on purpose, so they can excuse their lack of action to concentrate on their Senate campaigns. This has got to stop. It's time for US to use the NUCLEAR OPTION on them.

Interestingly enough, We got two fundraising calls yesterday (the first since the elections)...

...and that's precisely what I told them.

Problem is, many corporative contributors and pro-business organizations - some of which have explicitly stated that they don't want their legislative priorities disrupted by a filibuster fight - can easily make up the difference in contributions, and calculate (IMO correctly) that social conservative voters will end up supporting Republicans in 2006/8.

I have now sent back a couple of dozen fundraising solicitations with the following written across them in bold red sharpie pen...

"Not one $ 'til Bush's judges are seated and the borders are secure"

If we all do this we'll get their attention. The only thing they really care about is their flow of cash.

I understand your point, but my blood is to the boiling point, and I'm not going to take it anymore. We are far from DU in every way, and we will maintain decorum despite being treated like nonexistent people after an election cycle. Bottom line is let the jackasses know we aren't going to just lay down for this debacle in the senate.

Let's go easy on the Senate Republicans. In normal Senate Tradition they are going slow. I hear the plan is to float trial balloons for another 23,584 times just so they can attain the total of 50,000 necessary to move forward.

I am feel like I am spamming threads but here goes anyway. When Senators Allen, Inhofe, and Dr. Coburn spoke at the OK GOP Convention they made certain everyone understood that the judicial issue would not be brought up until some key bills had cleared the Senate which could take anywhere from 2-4 weeks or a little longer. These bills are being voted on this week which is why you see the RATs scrambling trying to make a deal.

After those bills were passed Senator Allen stated that it was the obligation of the Senators to uphold their oath in voting on this federal judicial nominations. At that time he stated along with my two Senators, "ALL" filibustered nominations would be brought to the floor and there will be a vote under the "constitutional" option. The word nuclear was NOT to be used in conjunction with judicial nominees.

Time after time I have seen the Republican leadership tell the media and Americans it is not a "nuclear" option but a "constitutional" option, but it seems to have done no good as journalists/news readers along with some on here still use the word "nuclear" -- they pay no attention to what is said but sure do love to bash.

Seems reasonable to me that you get key bills passed before going after the judicial nominations but looks like some people are believing what the media and McCain has to say about a compromise -- this is a test for the Supreme Court nominees and they will not back down on the nominations according to aides I have talked to in the last few days. They know what is at stake. Instead of bashing Republicans like I have seen on here recently based on media/McCain accounts, maybe what you should be doing is giving them support and telling the Republican Senators you are supporting them in judicial fights and will take no for an answer.

What I keep seeing is people withholding funds from RNC and NRSC -- wonder how many really donate (sarcasm) like the people that say they are not voting for a Republican again on here. What good does withholding money do? All you are doing is giving the DemocRATs support because you are showing them their obstruction is working because Republicans are getting harmed not them.

Every time Sen Frist has spoken he is all about not backing down. Karl Rove weighed in with the same but on here some of you believe the RATs, the media, and McCain. What gives? If they back down on nominees, then go after them but right now all you have is heresay being carried by the LA Times for one and other analysts who I have to wonder about their agendas. What do you want Frist and others to do -- telegraph their plans or better yet go on TV and give the RATs step by step details on how they plan to handle this on the floor of the Senate? Why not just tell the RATs everything ahead of time because Freepers are disgusted and want to know what is going on because the media says the Republicans are caving. We can lose five Republicans and Cheney can break the tie.

Start calling your Republican Senators and tell them you support the "CONSTITUTIONAL" option for approving President Bush's judicial nominees. Call McCain and the DemocRAT Senators if they are from your State and give them an earfull of why they are ignoring the "CONSTITUTION" and their "OATH of OFFICE" in not advising/consenting to the President's nominees on the floor of the Senate without their quasi filibuster. At the same time tell them you will work to defeat them in 2006 if they are up for reelection. Quit bashing Republican Senators that are for the "Constitutional" option and lumping them all together.

My more than two cents -- now going outside to do some lawnwork -- hope this did some good but the way things have been going on here lately, I have my doubts.

For those folks in Nebraska -- time now to get a good candidate and send Nelson and his compromise back to Nebraska.

Somewhere between the elections in November and the present, the Republican leaders of the Senate have been neutered into demokrat'z eunuchs............But, like a person who is a Chicago Cubs fan, hope springs eternal. If Frist, et al, would just do what we elected them to do in the first place, then the dems would be shocked, for a while. What's the use of supporting the same ol' same ol' with our hard earned CASH?......................Thank You, Sir! May I have another?......

Relax. The Senate GOP has to choose the time and place to stage this fight... my advice is to wait until there's a Supreme Court vacancy, and then force the Rats to start a filibuster. Then the GOP can drop the hammer on 'em.

Of course, if the GOP Mod Squad colludes with the Rats to avert a return to constitutional norms, then they should be defunded.

We have waited 4 years for some of these judges. Taking care of other business wore thin long ago. There is always some reason why we can't possibly do it now. If you want believe their BS, then so be it, but even if they were to move today, it won't happen of course, I would still be very upset with the republican senators. I'm also sick of being ignored when it's their conservative base that has made the real difference in so many elections. If you want hold their hand and sing Kumbiya, that is your business. I'm ready for the Battle Hymn of the Republic!

They have wasted 6 MONTHS, plus 4 YEARS. Enough is enough. If THEY LOSE THEIR JOB it will because of judges and the border issue. The illegal vote, FRAUD VOTE, is going to be HUGE in 2006. The GOP has pushed the faithful into what THEY THINK is the 'where else are you going to go mode', they are going to be unemployed and sadly mistaken. They have been caving and caving on issue after issue for months, on issues that WILL NOT affect the sovereignty of the nation or the integrity of the voting process. If those two things are not the two most important issues of every American, regardless of political stripe, then all they are doing is playing tiddlywinks and expecting the sheep to fall in line at election time. If they are NOT going to govern like a majority, certainly within the rules, then, they need to be turned out and replaced with fresh blood and balls.
