Remember, I Said NEVER Donate to RNC
Several times I've made the case that no one should ever donate to the national Republican organizations (RNC, NRSC or NRCC). They constantly back "moderate" (translated as liberal) candidates over more conservative candidates out of a misguided sense of electability. They think fence sitting voters and independents are more likely to vote for Republicans who are Dem lite than for Republicans who actually believe in the party platform. Today's example is from the state of Delaware. The Republican establishment was all set to support financially Rep. Mike Castle who votes with the party around half the time and is actually nutty enough to buy into global warming and vote for the Cap and Trade scam if he won the primary. Now, that he lost the primary to Christine O'Donnell who is more conservative the national party apparatus is financially sitting out the general election. When I see endorsements and actions like we've seen in primaries over the last decade or so I'm more and more convinced that for most of the politicians it is more about maintaining the status quo than about advancing conservative principles.
Remember the geniuses who know better than the rest of us supported Charlie Crist for the U.S. Senate seat from Florida and Dede Scozzafava in her bid for an open congressional seat from New York only to see both of them abandon the party. Crist saw he would lose the primary and decided to run as an independent and has indicated he would caucus with the Dems. Scozzafava just went ahead and switched to Dem to match her already far left political positions.
If you have money to give away give it to individual candidates who will support your positions. NEVER give money to a committee. I've sat on committees and seen how they make decisions. It isn't pretty. Remember a donkey is a thoroughbred horse that was designed by a committee.
