I'm writing to give you a quick update on the U.S. Senate race in Texas. Please forward this email to as many people as you can.
The Republican primary election in Texas is just two months away so there's no time to waste.
The proven, tested, and unmatched conservative candidate in the race -- former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz -- has launched his first radio and television ads to win support across Texas.
Many of you have contributed financially to Ted's campaign and now he's putting your money to work.
Ted Cruz is also stepping up his media appearances. Last week, he was featured on Mark Levin's nationally syndicated radio show. Levin put it best when he said, "If we are going to repeal ObamaCare, we need some fighters who are articulate, charismatic, and have the kind of skills necessary to do it. Ted Cruz in Texas, I could not support him more strongly."
We agree and this is why the Senate Conservatives Fund has invested nearly $1 million in his race through a combination of direct fundraising for Ted Cruz's campaign and a major independent expenditure for a statewide television commercial. read more »
Do you want to learn the basics of effective conservative activism?
For a limited time, we are giving away FREE copies of the "Beginner's Guide to Grassroots Politics" (volume one of the "Grassroots 101" series).
The only "catch" is that in order to get yours, you "pay" by simply posting a message to either Facebook or Twitter and help us spread the word about it.
The Beginner's Guide to Grassroots Politics is the "how to" manual for having an impact on our political system.

We're launching a new online game/application for Facebook to make it easy for conservatives to help identify and "roundup" other fellow conservatives. It's called "Conservative Roundup" - and we need your help to test it out!
Just CLICK HERE and it will take you straight to the app. Click the login button and give permission to Facebook and you're in! Then help us kick the tires.
As I mentioned, it's a "beta test" for version 1.0. Our design team is making improvements to it each evening, and will continue to do so as you help us identify any needed fixes, or any good suggestions you may have for useful improvements that could be made.
We'll update you on the progress as we go, but in the meantime...
For the past several months, liberal mobs have been on a glorified camping trip, "occupying" various public spaces and raging against, well, they're really not sure about "what", but pretty much anything that looks like America.
Throughout the media's coverage of these "protests", (versus their coverage of the Tea Party), there hasn't been very much real information about these people, what they're about and what they're up to.
That's why we set up a site dedicated to the facts: OccupyTruth.net
You can help spread the truth about the Occupy "movement" by posting any of the dozens of messages on Twitter or Facebook. We also will maintain links to places with even more information to make sure people have easy access to the facts.

While it shouldn't surprise anyone that liberals feel this way, it is sometimes a little bit surprising to have any of them screw up and validate what conservatives have said all along about their goals.
This video of a speaker at an Occupy LA rally says it all:
latest O'Keefe investigation
Conservative investigative journalist James O'Keefe is out with his latest undercover expose of a liberal sacred cow - in this case, Medicaid. What he uncovers should shock everyone...but probably won't.
Via Project Veritas:
The first investigation released focuses on four Medicaid offices in Ohio. The undercover reporters intimate that they are drug dealers, drive expensive cars, and possess incredible wealth. At no time did the case workers ask the reporters to leave. Even though the reporters admit to making their living through drug dealing or facilitating child prostitution, the case workers never called the police, Child Protective Services or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In fact, the case workers appear eager to assist the reporters in filling out the necessary Medicaid paperwork.
Sounds about right.
His first video is below. And, if his past practice is any indication, it's sure to be followed by several more...just after liberals or government bureaucrats claim this was an "isolated incident".
Enjoy. And pass it on!
About a month ago we promoted the first round of what will be an ongoing effort to survey grassroots conservatives on the 2012 GOP nomination contest...and the first results are in!
The survey asked the following questions:
- Who is your FIRST choice for President in 2012?
- Who is your SECOND choice?
- Who are you LEAST ENTHUSIASTIC about?
- Do you support or consider yourself part of the Tea Party movement?
- How do you categorize yourself? (what type of conservative)
Given how many names were in the mix (and sort of still are), it's not surprise that things were spread out a good bit. And given that our survey is being promoted to over 200,000 grassroots conservative activists, (over 3,000 of which have participated so far), it's no surprise that it skews in a very conservative direction.
With that, on to the results!
As you can see, Herman Cain did very well, no doubt due to his showing in the earlier debates, and Palin does really well for someone who's not yet in the race. Of course Mitt does well due to name ID and being pretty much the "runner up" from 2008...along with Ron Paul and his hard core support among the psudo-libertarians among us. The other thing to note is that support is pretty well scattered among several of the different "more conservative" candidates (or potential candidates in some cases).
Also note that "someone else" beat out Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman. read more »
Up in smoke...
It's been a year now since the Obama administration proclaimed the "Recovery Summer" (or, the Summer of Love for what "The One" is doing for the economy).
So how'd all that work out? Well, unless you're a government employee, not too good.
American Job Creators has a great video out which pretty well get's the point across. Enjoy - and feel free to share...
The New Hampshire debate is over...and the first votes in the 2012 battle for the Republican nomination will be cast in just eight months!
Some candidates have officially launched their campaigns; others plan to do so in the coming weeks - and others have decided not to run at all.
In other words, the field is starting to take shape - and we want to know what conservative activists think about it.
We are surveying over 200,000 conservatives around the country to find out what THEY think., and we want your vote to be included.
Who is your first choice? Your second? Is there anyone that you wouldn't support?
Let us know - then pass the survey on to other conservative friends by sharing it via email, Facebook or Twitter and help spread the word.
