Take Back The Senate 2008

Let’s look at the US Senate. This body of 100 elected members from across the US has a vital role in our government. These are the people who have been constitutionally bound to oversee presidential appointments. If there is a portion of government that is vital to be won this would be the group. As a conservative who isn’t too fond of the current Republican front runner I am being bombarded with so-called conservative media blitzes about possible Supreme Court justice replacements likely over the next ten years. Well I don’t have to like the political presidential candidates to get my needs met. The right Senate body is all it takes for our fine court to be unblemished by our failing political system.

The President gets to choose the nominee but he can’t force the confirmation. The confirmation process goes through the Senate and it isn’t a cake walk. Ask Justice Roberts about the grilling he got before the Judiciary Committee and the Senate. Some get tossed back and the process starts over.

The bottom line is, who is up for election in the Senate and what choices do we have available. The senate is currently made up of 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats and 2 Independents that Vote Democrat. There are currently 35 seats up for grabs, 23 Republican 12 Democrat. If the Republicans can actually field a conservative to challenge the Democrats and the other Republican seats can be at least half retained, the Senate will be slightly improved. This body needs to be tied at minimum or 1 bested for Conservative values to carry.

The States that have current Senate elections should be our focus point. If you are reading this and are from one of the following states, help conservative Americans get a handle on their choices.

Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming

Look into your candidates and help everyone become informed. Join me over at The American Conservative Forums and help persuade Americans back to our conservative values. What we cannot do by ourselves we can accomplish in number. Become someone who works on changing our country for the better, rather then someone who is forced to change for the worse.

This is good information. I hope our conservative peers take this to heart, and work within their states to choose nominees that will promote conservative values and enhance American political security.
