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.
Maggies Notebook has joined, and today donated to Sharron Angle (Senate Nevada) and Christine ODonnell (Senate Delaware). I havent 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 Ill 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 this 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 PACs that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you cant 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 its one that should really catch on.
Id 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 favoriteand 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.
Readers, if you want to join RightKliks efforts to join-up with other bloggers and readers to send a money-bomb each Friday to the person winning the RightKlik poll, leave your nomination in comments. The next poll begins on Sunday at RightKlik. See the poll ended on Friday June 18th here.
Another idea moving through the blogs is the, RINO Killer Alert, a major effort to move Delawares Christine ODonnell into the Senate, and more specifically into Joe Bidens senate seat. Her opponent is U.S. Representative Mike Castle, a House RINO (Republican In Name Only) and heres something for you to remember: Castle, a Republican, voted for ObamaKare. Revealing the GOPs bad judgement again The National Republican Senatorial Committee supports him, and by doing so sanctions Castles 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 ODonnell was on the Ten Buck Fridays poll, as well. Im 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 ODonnell and Angle used the same payment form. In the box for Occupation I wrote Donated through Ten Buck Friday Blog and RINO Killer Alert.
