This evening, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann sent out a fundraising email that stressed her dedication to “constitutional conservatism” and less government and more freedom [see the email below this post]. In it she also describes herself as having the “titanium spine” that is needed to make voter’s voices heard in Washington, D.C. Her email then goes on to explain that in order to make that voice heard properly, she first needs to hear from you.
So her email provides a link to a so-called survey which asks 10 questions that, for conservatives, are nothing but rhetorical. For instance, how else would a Republican respond to a question asking them which is the best strategy to create jobs?
◊I believe that true job creation will only come with reduced taxes and spending.
◊I agree with President Obama. We must spend more to create jobs in America.
If you answer that question wrong, please re-register as a Dummocrat and join Debbie Wasserman Schultz at the DNC headquarters to brainstorm on some strategies that will allow the Dems to take back control of the House in 2012.
When you are done answering the obvious (so long as you’re not a Jerry Brown voting Californian or yearning for the days of Jimmy Carter), a donation page appears and asks you to fill in your information and check off the amount of your donation.
If you’re a Bachmann backer, you will. If not, you probably will have clicked on the spam icon in your email toolbar, long before you ever got that far. Either way, White House 2012 provides you with her pitch to supporters. Every communication that a campaign sends out, says much about the candidate. This one from Bachmann’s campaign is no different. So have a read and get a look at how Bachmann hopes to appeal to enough Republicans to build a wining coalition of supporters who will award her the Republican nomination for President.
In recent days, some have said that to get elected President in 2012, you have to veer to the left. Not me, I don’t buy it. I believe that America is still a conservative nation and the American people are desperate for a return to the common-sense conservative solutions that once made us flourish. Policies like lower taxes, secure borders, less regulation, and the full repeal of Obamacare are necessary to put our nation back on track and, as President, I won’t settle for anything less.
As I’ve traveled across America advocating for our shared values, I’ve met thousands of fellow constitutional conservatives who have painted a vivid picture of a great nation in need of a new direction. Your combined voices have shaped and refined my message of less government and more freedom, but a limited amount of time and a lot of ground to cover, it is nearly impossible to speak to every voter, one-on-one. But your voice is important. As a candidate for President of the United States, I want to hear from each and every one of you, and that’s why our campaign has put together an American Issues Survey to get your input on the issues most important to you. I hope you’ll join other constitutional conservatives in taking this important survey by visiting this link.
These days, robbing Peter to pay Paul is the new normal. President Obama’s second stimulus has proposed $450 billion in new spending, funded by new taxes and a widening deficit. Businesses are being unfairly, but successfully, sued by Big Labor at the cost of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars — for the benefit of wealthy union bosses. And, even while millions of Americans sit without work, job creators are being targeted with even more taxes and job killing regulations, in what is already one of the world’s harshest climates for business taxation.
The candidate who our party nominates for President must be prepared to tackle these issues head on, and stand strong for the conservative ideas that will move our nation forward. I have the titanium spine necessary to take your voice to Washington and fight for our shared values, but first I need to know what’s on your mind. Will you visit this link and fill out our American Issues Survey so that I’m prepared to lead with the voice of the people?
You most likely hear this a lot, but it’s as true as ever–the stakes in the 2012 Presidential race have never been higher. With a President who systematically injects his left-wing ideology into our daily lives, other candidates’ records promise more of the same, taking a slightly different course from President Obama but arriving at the same destination on issues like immigration, healthcare, and infringement on liberty. We’ve got to elect a President who won’t settle for anything but an entirely different path. I won’t settle, and you can count on that.
Our survey is only ten questions long, and is important to maintaining a winning strategy as the primary campaign enters its busiest season. It will only take you a few minutes to answer, and that’s why I hope you’ll fill it out right away.
As we continue our campaign for the White House, I’m always thankful to have you by my side. If we’re going to win this election, we have to stick together and keep our eyes on the ball — defeating President Obama and returning our voices to the White House.
P.S. After you finish our ten-question survey, you’ll have an opportunity to support our campaign to take back the White House with a generous donation. In a recent article, Bloomberg News noted our campaign’s extraordinary grassroots donors, the sum of which is larger than any other candidate in this race. By making a contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more after completing the survey, you can join this incredible group of patriots who have made grassroots donations in support of the issues mentioned on the survey, and help us move the ball down the field towards victory. Thanks! Michele
