I am thinking that donating direct to Tea Party candidates is a better investment than stocks and bonds or Gold.
I won’t give another dime to RNC, GOP, CPAC, Karl “the buffet” Rove or any other national organization.

Don’t know which one it was but he was rather dismissive, as was I and walked away with respect for him and a few contracts.
I may just give some of my hard earned loot to their org.
Hope they got better legal counsel than Tom Delay.
Eric Holder may have traded notes with Ronnie the Weasel Earle.
Seriously, we’ll need 3-4 times that to win.
