Dear Janet A. Boyle,
Here is today's Sixty Second Activist ACTION ITEM:
ISSUE: Your help is needed quickly... and you probably don't even know it.
National Review recently ran a story on what they say may be "the most
underreported political phenomenon of the last two election cycles"...
Republicans are losing to Libertarians.
Actually, they're losing *BECAUSE* of Libertarian Party (LP) candidates,
all over the country. Thanks to LP candidates "siphoning off" votes that
would most likely have gone to GOP candidates, we now have a 50/50 split
in the Senate (Gorton lost to Cantwell in Washington, thanks to the LP's
Jared last year; two years ago, Ensign lost to Reid in Nevada, thanks to
the LP's Cloud; four years ago, Millner lost to Cleland in Georgia, thanks
to the LP's Cashin). If not for these three "spoilers", the Republicans
would have a 53-47 majority today, and liberal Republicans like Senators
Jeffords and Chafee wouldn't be able to block President Bush's tax cut.
It's also likely that the GOP would have an additional two seats in the
House if it weren't for the Libertarian Party taking Republican votes away
in races in California and New Jersey. Even an LP spokesman admitted that
they "take twice as many votes from Republicans as from Democrats."
In THIRTY YEARS, the LP has never elected a single individual to Congress
under their party's banner, and less than a dozen individuals TOTAL to
state legislatures around the country. They're spoilers ... nothing more.
ACTION ITEM: There is a growing Constitution-based organization, the
Republican Liberty Caucus, which is working to bring mainstream,
common-sense Libertarians back into the GOP tent. The RLC is supported by
many well-known elected Republicans, including Rep. Ron Paul of Texas (a
former Libertarian Party presidential candidate who made the "switch" many
years ago); one of the "heroes" of the fight against Gore's attempt to
steal the election, State Rep. (and House Speaker) Tom Feeney (FL), is on
the RLC Advisory Board.
The RLC is the right organization at the right time with the right
message. More and more people are coming to realize that the LP, as a
political organization, is a losing proposition which only helps elect
Democrats. And more and more Republicans are actually making
constitutional arguments on issues, such as in the debate over
But as "Tony Soprano" said in HBO's "The Sopranos," "Nothing's as useless
as an unloaded gun." Ditto a political organization without money.
In less than a minute, you can help make a difference in whether the
Republicans keep losing, thanks to the Libertarian Party, or start winning
the majorities needed to stem the liberal onslaught on Capitol Hill. CLICK

NOTE: There are over 18,000 members of the Sixty Second Activist Club. If
just 100 of us recruited just one person a month to sign up to give just
$10 a month ... (let's see, carry the one, add two ... dang that public
school math education!) ... that comes to $144,000 per year. For the RLC,
that would be one heck of a start, and YOU can be a part of something BIG.
