    † Happy New Year!We were so busy in 2011 that it seems like a blur that flew by.† At a time when the mainstream media keeps pushing the notion that the Tea Party is losing its influence, I think that it is important to look back on all that you and I accomplished in 2011.† We can be very proud of all that we have done and use it as motivation to fight for Tea Party values in 2012.† Here are some of the highlights of 2011:Organized the first Tea Party response, by Michele Bachmann, to the State of...

    Senate Conservatives Fund - E-mail | Dec 12, 2011 | Senator Jim DeMint
    Fellow Conservatives: Many of you have contacted me to express your support for stronger voices within the Senate Republican leadership. You may be interested to know that Senate Republicans will vote tomorrow to elect a new Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference. U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) recently stepped down from leadership, setting off a mid-session shake up. As a result, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) -- a rock-solid conservative and SCF-endorsed candidate in 2010 -- has put his name forward as a candidate for Vice Chair. The Senate Conservatives Fund supported Ron Johnson last year and helped propel...

  • Scott Walker Recall Petitions - Advice Regarding the Petitions

    11/16/2011 1:13:53 PM PST · by Jean S · 14 replies
    There have been a lot of suggestions on how to sabotage the recall. I received this from a close friend who knows the laws: During the signature collection period, candidates attempting to be recalled can raise unlimited amounts of money. It's a funny little loophole, but it will pay off big in this election. The Governor will be able to take unlimited amounts of money from donors and you better believe there will be individuals willing to fork over hundreds of thousands and a few who will donate over a million dollars. If money is no object, why not? I...

    What treat on Halloween! GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain is coming to the American Enterprise Institute on October 31st for a 9 AM chat with AEI tax guru Kevin Hassett. (I just might sneak in a few questions, too!) As you know, Cainís 9-9-9 tax plan has incited energized discussion about the impact of taxes on Americans. The plan would throw out our current tax system and replace it with a 9 percent business tax, a 9 percent personal income tax, and a 9 percent national sales tax. Many economists believe that this move would promote growth, but detractors argue...
