Numerous posts on RedState, Michelle Malkin, and elsewhere show that Congressman Cantor is supporting, along with the NRCC, the liberal "Republican" pick over the Conservative candidate. The GOP is using money donated to it by conservatives to defeat conservatives. It does not seem to matter that Dede Scozzafava, an ACORN-friendly, union-pandering, tax-and-spend radical Republican won't even confirm that she will STAY a Republican once elected. She has that all-valuable "R" next to her name. No matter that she was the favorite of ACORN over the Democrat candidate and probably won't caucus with the GOP.
From Michelle Malkin:
Does it matter to Mr. Cantor that his candidate won the Margaret Sanger Award? You know, the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood? The woman that supported draconian population control and the destruction of Black Americans?
Scozzafava is an abortion rights advocate who favors gay marriage. It would be one thing if Scozzafava balanced that social liberalism with fiscal conservatism. But 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.
More troubling, Scozzafava in past elections has embraced the ballot line of the Working Families Party — a socialist outfit whose political DNA is intertwined with scandal-ridden ACORN. ACORN and the WFP have shared office space in New York City, Arkansas and Illinois. ACORN head Bertha Lewis, a close Scozzafava friend and 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.”
When will the GOP start realizing that the conservatives will not support business as usual any longer? When will the GOP stop being the STUPID PARTY?
Here's a letter from John Hoffman, the Conservative Candidate, from RedState:
THIS is the type of people we need in Congress! Make your displeasure known to the appropriate people:
I am not your run of the mill politician (maybe that’s why the NRCC didn’t like me). As an accountant, I make my living reading numbers. But the stakes for our nation – in this November’s Special Election – are too high to be defined by polls or the cold, hard math of fundraising goals or headcounts of local political bosses’ endorsements.
I’m a conservative. I’m running for Congress because I believe the America I love, the America we know, is being taken away from us.
I’m running because our nation’s founding values–freedom, free markets, respect for life and the rule of law–are no longer viewed by many of our nation’s leaders as America’s principles.
I’m running because it’s time to stand up to Washington and not allow Congress or the White House to saddle us with unbearable taxes and crush the next generation with a debt that will keep America from being the strongest, freest nation on the face of the earth.
That’s what I believe and that’s what I’ll fight for.
Back in 1980, as the corporate comptroller of the Olympic Games, I helped Lake Placid with our Winter Olympics. That was the year the US beat the Russians in hockey, and that victory, at a time when America was doubting herself, instilled a sense of national pride that I think helped usher in the era of President Ronald Reagan. Our win in the North Country’s Special Election for Congress on November 3rd will send a message to Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi … and set the stage for us to reclaim our national pride and our American values.
But to win, and for us to send that message, I need your support. Take a moment, right now, and go to www.DougHoffmanforCongress.com and sign up. Join with me and thousands of Americans who’ve seen enough of Washington politics as usual. Let’s make our voice heard in this election.
Call the NRCC and RNC and Eric Cantor.
