I don’t think this includes Bill Gates giving the Chamber of Horrors and Commies, 50 million bucks.

The Dems are funding the GOPe these days, they know they can be bought off like the 25 cent Ho’s they are.

You forget inflation. Mitch McConnell is getting at least $2 for each time he gives Harry Reid a BJ.

The BJ comes after he sticks his face into Odumbo’s rear end.

Rove’s Super Pacs are down 98%
Conservative Pacs are up.
Looks like a trend.

It’s really difficult to talk about these people without getting scatological, isn’t it?

One could almost expect to see dung beetles crawling out from under their trousers.

Dems fund the Libertarian candidates, also. Murdock (put a sock in his mouth) was challenged by Libertarian candidate Horning (http://www.horningforcongress.com/ )and lost by the votes Horning picked up.

It’s a winning strategy for Dems and I expect to see it widely used in the 2014 Senate races. Got McAwful elected in the Virginia gov race.

The “Clintonian plurality” win...cringe...

Yet they somehow think a push for amnesty will increase fundraising? I swear these Republicrats are delusional. All my donations continue to go to “the rebels” and individuals I hear about from Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. Reps haven’t gotten a dime from me in 6 years.

That fat faced Karl Rove that drove us into Iraq for nothing is losing funDS. We are finished with the Rockefeller liberal wing of this party. Here are you 3 choices. Paul, Cruz or Huckabe. That’s it— No MORE ROMNEY CRAP OR bUSH JUNK — it is over. AND i BELIEVE THAT WE CAN WIN AGAINST THIS INEPT WOMAN WHO ALLOWED STINGER MISSILES TO BE GIVEN THE AL QAEDA IN LIBYA!!

With that, I think the Tea Party must be more organized and rally around not two but one candidate. Libertarians will always pull votes from anti big gov. Perhaps the Tea Party needs to unite with the Libertarians. Actually, they are more on our side.

Huckabee? Are you KIDDING? He recently said we should not even use the term, “RINO,” any longer!

Nope, they've always been for Amnesty.

They just tried to hide it and lie to us about how conservative they were.

Thanks for opposing Cornball, but you don’t know how insistent Texans are to keep the status quo.

Sadly, the "us" is too uninformed to know who is who.

Me too. I donate to a different conservative each month. SC’ s top Senate Conservative is next.

I hope others will contribute to conservatives and/or the TEA Party. It is so important that we win in 2014.

You looked pretty ridiculous in supporting Dewhurst in 2012 didn’t you?
