Conscientiously Conservative came up with a great idea. Each Friday she is donating $10 to a worthy conservative candidate now up to the November election. Several bloggers have joined the effort. Note that, if $10 is too much, do less, or do more if you can. The point is to get it on our calendars and in our minds – rather than putting it off for another time. Unfortunately, it takes money to win an election today, and Democrats are flush, thanks to George Soros and MoveOn.org and all the ACORNs out there.
Maggie’s Notebook has joined, and today donated to Sharron Angle (Senate Nevada) and Christine O’Donnell (Senate – Delaware). I haven’t donated to the GOP for several years now, and will not do so. My money goes to individuals.
Readers are welcome to participate. If you read about Ten Buck Fridays or RINO Killers here first, just leave your name in comments and I’ll have a list of participants each week.
See details below with a series of comments from other bloggers involved in Ten Buck Fridays and RINO Killer Alert. RightKlik will have a new poll beginning Sunday, June 20th. You can vote in the poll, and donate to the poll winner, or to whomever you wish. The new poll winner will be revealed next Friday, June 25th, 2009.
Conscientiously Conservative – the birth mother of Ten Buck Fridays:
Many of us get paid on Fridays… if we bring a sack lunch a couple of times a week to work, right there is an extra tenner. What if conservatives donated $10 each and every week up through November to viable candidates and/or PAC’s that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you can’t afford every week, what about twice a month? Or once a month? Conservatives need to put their money where their mouth is. Commit to Ten Buck Fridays… it WILL make a difference come November!
Ten Buck Fridays is a great idea, and I think it’s one that should really catch on.
I’d like to join with conservative bloggers and conservatives on twitter to focus attention on a different candidate each week. Each week, deserving candidates could be nominated. Polling through the next several days could determine the crowd favorite…and on Friday, a good conservative would be hit with a grassroots moneybomb!
Imagine what a thousand grassroots conservatives could accomplish in unison. Ten thousand dollars a week would grab a lot of attention and could help some candidates who really need it.
Who will join us?
This week: Sharon Angle. Next week, you decide.
Another idea moving through the blogs is the, RINO Killer Alert, a major effort to move Delaware’s Christine O’Donnell into the Senate, and more specifically into Joe Biden’s senate seat. Her opponent is U.S. Representative Mike Castle, a House RINO (Republican In Name Only) – and here’s something for you to remember: Castle, a Republican, voted for ObamaKare. Revealing the GOP’s bad judgement – again – The National Republican Senatorial Committee supports him, and by doing so sanctions Castle’s vote. Bob at The Camp of Saints and Stacy at the Other McCain Read it at The Camp of Saints and The Other McCain.
I noticed that O’Donnell was on the Ten Buck Fridays poll, as well. I’m sure she will be the recipient of Ten Buck Fridays donations soon.
The idea is to make the donations on line, directly to the candidate. Please note you are making the donation through Ten Buck Fridays. The donations I made today to O’Donnell and Angle used the same payment form. In the box for “Occupation” I wrote “Donated through Ten Buck Friday Blog and RINO Killer Alert.
