"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Nebraska Senate race is between Conservative Ben Stenberg and the Establishment Republicans

This morning I received this email from the Senate Conservatives Fund about Ben Stenberg who is running for the US Senate in Nebraska.  It is getting more evident that the establishment does not want any more free-market conservatives in the Senate.  Why not?  What has happened to the Republican Party?  Thought we threw off the moderate/liberal influence in the Republican Party but I guess not.  Do establishment Republicans want conservatives out of the party because if they keep this up, they might get their wish, but for now we are staying and fighting.

If the establishment Republicans get their wish to evict us from the Party, then who is going to do the work as blue blood Republicans have never been known to get their hands dirty and actually work in a campaign.  Maybe they think all the money is going to make a difference.  Oklahomans showed with Dr. Coburn in 2004 when we sent him to the Senate that the grassroots counts in this part of the Country more than a well funded a candidate who is pushed by the establishment and the Chamber of Commerce.

What makes a difference is having candidates and their supporters dedicated and believing in the same values.  That is when you can get out the vote as big donors are still one vote from one person.  Better to have a lot of people in a campaign who believe in a candidate especially in Middle America's Heatland states here in Red Country America.  Interspersed with the large cities of Dallas/Fort Worth, Kansas City, and St. Louis are a lot of mid sized cities along your smaller cities and communities in the rural areas which tend to be conservative and believe in small government and free enterprise.  You can drive for miles out here and see only small towns.  That is something the Rockefeller Republicans have never understood that the people in Middle America are pretty independent minded and don't follow along like lemmings when the establishment tells us who we must support as a candidate.

President Reagan came from a small town in IL and grew up with the values of the Heartland of America and it showed as he became Governor of California and then President.  The Rockefeller Republicans tried their best with a dirty campaign to take him out in 1980 but it failed.  That same group is still at it in this election.

Don Stenberg is one of some really good candidates running for Senate being supported the Senate Conservatives Fund.  The establishment has a candidate in the race who didn't want to run but they didn't want another conservative in the Senate.  Time for conservatives across America to rise up and help Nebraskans send Don Stenberg to the US Senate to replace the Democrat Ben Nelson.  We can send a message that conservatives are not going away any time soon by sending more conservatives to the Senate.
Fellow Conservatives: 
With just three weeks to go until Nebraska Republicans head to the polls, the Washington establishment has officially hit the panic button.

Last week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsed Stenberg's opponent in an effort to stop his surge. 
As you may know, the Chamber supported the failed stimulus program, the Wall Street bailout, the auto bailout, cash-for-clunkers, as well as many other corporate welfare schemes. The Chamber doesn't oppose government intervention in the marketplace. Instead, it often works to expand it to benefit one special interest over another.

The corporate welfare lobby in Washington wants to defeat Don Stenberg because he isn't afraid to stand up to them.
“Nebraskans don’t want a Wall Street Senator who makes backroom deals with big government special interests," Stenberg said. "They want a street fighter, someone who will work tirelessly to shrink the size of government.” 
He's right. Freedom-loving Americans in Nebraska and across the nation want a principled fighter in the Senate, and we can have one if we act now. 
If you have already contributed to Stenberg's campaign, please do so again. And if you haven't supported this man, now is the time to do it. Even if you can only give $25. Please give something
We have only three weeks to impact this race so it's now or never. Please don't let the establishment defeat this principled conservative and elect another posturing politician. We can win this race, but we must work together.
