Support Doug HoffmanUPDATE: Just wanted to remind you who first raised the question, "Why is Sarah MIA?"
The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches! He needs our help now.
The votes of every member of Congress affect every American, so it's important for all of us to pay attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York. I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York's 23rd Congressional district. It's my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC, donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.
Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a "time for choosing."
The federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington, D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.
And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.
Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.
Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines" between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.
Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.
You can help Doug by visiting his official website below and joining me in supporting his campaign:
-- Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin could make a huge difference in the NY23 special election, and everybody knows it. . . .That was Saturday and Sarah answered the call today. Gee, Governor, you had us worried there for a few days . . .
One point to make clear: No official in the Hoffman campaign has said a word to me about Sarah Palin. But some of Hoffman's supporters are heartbroken that Sarah -- whom I dubbed the "Sweetheart of the Heartland" last year -- hasn't joined the fight against Dede Scozzafava . . .
Forget about everybody "inside the Beltway," Mrs. Palin, and think about the people in NY23 -- decent, honest people who are working their hearts out and praying as hard as they can. The battlefield is there, the battle is underway, and every minute counts. . . .
UPDATE II: Turns out Underground Conservative had scooped me on this one. Folks, I was so tired this evening -- drove 400 miles yesterday to get here, then drove 140 miles round-trip to Watertown this morning, with maybe 12 hours sleep in the past 72 hours -- that I went to bed early.
After about an hour, a bad dream woke me up: I dreamed I was broke and couldn't afford to drive back home. God's way of telling me to get to work.
So I got up and checked around. God said to check Ace of Spades HQ, which had linked Sarah Palin's Facebook page, "just in case." Heh.
Also, God said you should hit the tip jar. At least, I think that's what he said. Maybe I was mistaken. But why risk it, huh? Tomorrow, I'm planning to drive to Hoffman's main HQ in Saranac Lake -- 186 miles one-way, about four hours. You really ought to contribute to the Shoe Leather Fund.
While I was working on this post, Jimmie called to say he'd just posted about the Hoffman campaign's new radio ad. I don't know whether God told him to do that or not.
UPDATE III: Weekly Standard has the story, and you've got to give John McCormack credit for risking jail by asking Dede ScozzaRINO tough questions. Meanwhile, we're also linked by Fishersville Mike, The Lonely Conservative and DaTechguy's Blog
