I’ve said in the past that I no longer will consider giving money to the RNC even though they continue to ask for it.
As I stated, I don’t want to give them money only to find that they have used it to support candidates that I would NEVER consider supporting. I’m sure that many others from both parties have found the same thing to be true.
I said at the time, and I’ll say again, that with the power of the internet, I can donate directly to candidates or causes that I totally agree with and encourage others to do the same.
An example of what I’m talking about is the RNC support of the Republican candidate in the congressional race in New York’s 23rd district. Dede Scozzafava is the nominee of the party bosses and is receiving money and support from the party.
The problem with that is that Dede is at least as left-leaning as her Democratic Party opponent. As a state assemblywoman, she voted for massive tax increases, Democratic budgets and a $180 million state bank bailout. She also supported the trillion-dollar federal stimulus package — which every House Republican voted against. She is an abortion rights advocate who supports gay marriage. Scozzafava’s husband is a leading upstate New York union organizer. She supports the federal “card-check” legislation that would massively boost union rolls. Scozzafava in past elections has embraced the ballot line of the Working Families Party, a socialist organization with ties to ACORN. In fact, ACORN head Bertha Lewis, who is a close friend of Scozzafava and a political supporter, wears a second hat as vice chairman of the WFP. The WFP has been listed in ACORN documents dating back to 2000 as an “affiliate.”
It is with this backdrop that I cannot support the RNC, the RNCC or the chosen Republican candidate for that seat. Instead, I have chosen to support the Conservative Party candidate, Doug Hoffman.
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 stands for smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.
