If you'd like to see a good exchange on Why Vote Republican? see my comments to Matt's column (http://senseinpolitics.blogspot.com) titled "Don't Put Christians in a (Political) Box."Please tell S. J. Reidhead at: http://ivotetheelephant.blogspot.com/ that you're either a conservative, or moderate, or liberal Republican voter who wants a place on her blogroll. Following are e-mails I sent to SJ and various candidates -- Melissa Hart for Congress (4th District, PA), William Russell for Congress (12th District. PA, Diana Irey for County Commissioner (PA) and "other" offices, Heather Wilson for U.S. Senate (New Mexico), and Bobby Jindal for Gov. of Louisiana. Make sure to tell your online friends about SJ's critically important blog site.
See detailed contact information at the bottom of this posting.
Note to Diana Irey and Melissa Hart: S. J. Reidhead ("Cindy"), of New Mexico, is an online friend and a political ally. She is known as "The Queen of the Political Blogosphere," and we've worked together in advancing the cause of Gov. Sarah Palin, whom we both want to be the first female President of the U.S. (POTUS).
Cindy, Melissa Hart is a conservative Republican who held the 4th congressional district seat (my district) in Pennsylvania, and lost in the Republican collapse of 2006. She is running against Jason Altmire, who took the seat by burying Melissa in a cascade of Moveon.org lies. I'm strongly backing Melissa in every way possible.
Diana Lynn Irey is a friend and political ally who ran in 2006 against "The Prince of Pork," John Murtha. She's a County Commissioner in the 12th congressional district of PA. Both of these women have very bright political futures. Cindy, I'm asking Melissa and Diana to visit your extremely important web site at:
William Russell is an Iraq war vet who is seriously considering a race against the odious John Murtha in PA's 12th congressional district.
Bobby Jindal has been an excellent member of Congress from Lousiana, and he's now the favorite to win the Governor's seat.
Cindy, you are a critically important figure in building coalitions for outstanding Republican candidates, including Heather Wilson for U.S. Senate in New Mexico and Alaska Gov. Sarah Heath Palin for national office, and you can be extremely helpful to Melissa and Diana -- and vice versa.
I'm also sending a copy of this letter to Josh Schultz at the NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee). I hope Josh will make your pro-Republican web sites known to everyone on his (extensive) mailing list.
Cindy, your efforts in the blogosphere were critical to George Bush's winning the presidency in 2004. As Republicans in an extremely challenging environment (to say the least!), we need to remember Ben Franklin's comment regarding American Independence: "We must all hang together, or most assuredly we will all hang separately." I hope Diana and Melissa will both add their web sites to your (rapidly) growing blogroll.
The future of the Republican Party rests with running truly outstanding candidates, and Melissa, Diana, Sarah, William, Bobby, and Heather fit right into that exclusive category.
