During the 2010 midterms, conservative bloggers united in a movement called “Ten Buck Friday”. The concept behind TBF was to contribute $10 to the campaign of a candidate who had risen in a poll conducted in the week prior. There are only nine Fridays between now and the 2014 midterms so there will be no polling just an effort to push vital funds into the Republican candidates’ campaign coffers.
Our country has not had a budget passed in the Senate since 2009, forcing a series of continuing resolutions which keep the nation at the brink of a shut down and hides the obscene amounts of money that the President and Congressional Democrats are hell-bent to spend. I needn’t remind you of our $17 trillion debt. Taking control of the Senate means we will effectively fire Harry Reid.
Many have asserted that the 113th Congress has been the least productive in history. Congress has passed the fewest number of bills into law in decades, a fact that some falsely blame on the Republican House. Until the last few years, Congress had been able to send more than 100 and sometimes more than 200 bills to the White House. There are over 300 bills passed by the House that are now waiting for action in the Senate.
The naked truth is the hundreds of bills passed in the House go to Harry Reid’s desk to die. Reid will not allow amendments because he wants to protect his members from actually being held accountable by the voters of the United States of America.
The day after the 2010 midterms, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer appeared to be “somber” when he conceded a “shellacking” at the polls. He needs another shellacking. Let’s make that happen with Ten Buck Fridays.
The state of many key races, including enough Senate seats to decide the majority, remains fluid, and it is the Senate that will define this midterm. Given electoral conditions and the red-leaning geography of the map, Republicans have few credible excuses if they don’t take Senate control in January.
The unofficial start for the general election in 2016 is Labor Day. Taking control of the Senate is imperative to stop the agenda of this regime. Below are the Senate races that that we can affect by volunteering and with our votes and our monetary support:
The 2014 midterms are clearly a referendum on the president. We need a GOP wave to sweep across the country. If that happens, at least four more Democrats in other states could get sent packing. The Republicans need a net gain of six seats to take control of the Senate. They might just do it with our help. Let’s get to work and stand guard over liberty.
