On Wednesday morning, the Republican National Committee emailed me, asking if I’d regret not giving them money this election cycle. My answer is simple: “No.”
You see, to give them a dime of my hard-earned money would be in direct opposition to the values that you and I have fought so hard for.
Some people will give in to the RNC’s guilt trip to support its so-called cause.
But not me.
If I were ignorant, maybe I’d consider…
Luckily, I know who the RNC is really rooting for, and it’s not us. So, no… I won’t sell my soul to them. And you shouldn’t, either.
A Deceiving Invitation
Here’s how they were trying to guilt me into giving…
“In exactly four weeks, this critical election will be over. The polls will be closed, and your opportunity to be a part of this historic election will be gone. To secure the Senate majority, Republicans need to gain every advantage we can in the next four weeks to help our candidates win in every community, every poll, every debate, and every election. To do so, we will need your help.”
Now if these were words of truth, I’d feel compelled to pitch in and do my part.
But it’s nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
You see, if they really wanted my help, then the national GOP shouldn’t (and wouldn’t) have spent millions of dollars trying to kill conservative campaigns in the crib. They literally manipulated the results in Mississippi by paying liberal blacks to vote in a run-off against a Tea Party conservative. In a misguided drive to keep the old Washington big-spending Republican, Thad Cochran, voting to keep the money spigot open for special interests, they were willing to break the rules.
It’s the same for every race.
The D.C. money crowd maneuvers to manipulate the process, in all attempts to control the GOP for incumbent big spenders. Then after they’ve spent their money to win these primaries, they always turn and ask conservatives for more money to help them win.
Their argument runs something like this: “We will screw up government more slowly than the even bigger spenders in the Democratic Party.”
The email continues…
“What we have: the momentum, a slight edge in battleground state polling, and a significant motive to win a Republican Senate Majority.”
Ironically, if they hadn’t pulled almost every dirty trick in the book to keep conservatives out of the general election, they would have more momentum and excitement to push them on to victory.
As it is, don’t think returning a bunch of big-spending Republicans to the nation’s capital is going to do anything significant for the country. Sure, they will argue a lot, they will say they want change… But then before you know it, they’ll turn around and gladly give Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi just about everything they want, in the name of compromise.
The Devil Lies
When you sell your soul to the devil, you never really get what you thought. And if you do, the price far outweighs the prize.
For a short period, it may seem that things are going in your favor, but in the end… you’re left in the same condition (if not worse off) than when you first made the deal. Just look at the RNC’s financial predicament.
The email I received ended with these final words: “What we don’t have: a fully stocked emergency fund to push us past the finish line as we approach our final Election Commission reporting deadline.”
For a committee that had millions in funds, why are they lacking resources?
Actually, I’m glad that they don’t have too much money. They always spend it wrong, anyway. The committee will only continue to pour money into the wrong races, and for the wrong people. Take former Senator Scott Brown, for example. After Massachusetts’ voters gave him the boot, he’s now trying to get elected in New Hampshire.
Despite better judgment, the big spenders in the D.C. GOP love folks like Scott Brown because he’s guaranteed to sell out conservative values on almost every occasion.
So if you want to send your money to D.C., then go ahead. (I’d personally suggest funding candidates or conservative PACs directly.)
But, be warned: If you are a conservative, money sent to the GOP committees will be working against your values. Unless doing a deal with the devil is your kind of thing.
