I told them I was holding on to my money until I see who is elected RNC chairman, and what direction he's planning on taking the party. I also called the poor, unfortunate call bank worker that I was tired of the tax cut and spend Republicans that were being elected, and I wasn't going to spend one more cent on the GOP until I was sure they were going to field more conservative candidates. She said she understood, tha she'd heard that from several people already, and wished me a good evening.

Meaningless gesture, I know, but you've got to stand for something.

They hear it enough, it may make a difference.

Actually, when it affects donations they may notice.

Inertia, especially in politics, is a bitch to overcome.

Same here. The current crop of republicans spend more tax money than drunken democrats during an election cycle.

Same here. The GOP isn't getting any of our money for a while.
We're going to invest in a new espresso maker...oh wait. :D

I have not given to the RNC since 2000. I give to the club for growth mostly now.

Withholding your dollars - good.

Withholding your vote - even better.

Thats why I'm a registered independant. I've never gotten a single call from any party asking me for money.

Nope. Let them prove to me that they aren't trying to out-whore the Democrats. No sense pissing away perfectly good money.

I will give only in a minimal way to the committee, but I will give more to candidiates whose positions I support.

Are there any Conservate PACS that anyone would recommend?

I'll give to individual candidates, but not to the GOP for now.

I told them the EXACT same thing when they called me, Moon.

They're hearing it from a lot more than a "few" people they are calling.

Question is, will they decide to listen?

They're going to have to, or find some new way to fund campaigns.
