Thompson Makes the Tonight Show...
And this was a great article from J.B. Williams at The Chattanoogan.com:
"...Imagine for a moment that the national committee (RNC) does not have the $892 million dollars that they raised during the 2004 Presidential election. That instead, this money remained in the grasp and control of individual conservatives to be used to promote a specific candidate instead of a national committee operating at odds with those constituents.
Imagine that these conservatives did their own homework and based upon the historical track records of the candidates available, chose a truly conservative Republican candidate that would otherwise be sidelined and ignored by the national committee.
Imagine that those same conservatives took just half of the money raised in 2004, some $450 million dollars and placed it all behind one truly conservative Republican leader who had a proven track record of standing firmly on the principles at the core of the once conservative Republican Party. A billion dollars for a single political campaign season is obscene to begin with… There’s the first clue of just how screwed up we have allowed it all to become.
Impossible? How hard is it? It takes only 4.5 million conservatives willing to invest $100 a piece, or 2.25 million willing to invest $200 a piece, or 1 million willing to invest $450 a piece. Doable? You bet! How much is saving your nation worth?
...93% of the conservative base of the Republican Party seems united. Not behind any of the committee anointed, press supported, partisan temporary RNC front-runners, but rather behind a candidate not yet officially in the race. A candidate being drafted by the people, of the people, for the people…. The people do still have the power…!" (Read the entire article)
