O'Donnell and the Founding Fathers

As I was pondering the unexpected primary win of Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, and whether or not to donate to her campaign, I was reminded of what the signers of the Declaration of Independence had risked.

They actually risked, as they put it, a “pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, & our sacred Honor”. They really meant that because, if the British won, these signers would all be hung. What am I risking by making a donation to O’Donnell? That she will lose, or that she will not carry out her pledge to the Tea Parties to be a real conservative and vote to reduce government and reduce taxes?

The Republican she beat in the primary voted for Cap and Tax. Who needs him in the Senate? Her Democrat opponent is a died-in-the-wool radical socialist. I decided the risk wasn’t very great, especially in the course of history. I decided to make a large (for me) donation and I did.

Her website ( is a little slow, but I was able to use a credit card to make my donation. I hope that donations will allow her people to power up the website.

As an aside, I have really lost a lot of respect for Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer in all of this. It is the time for all good people to come to the aid of the party. It is time to beat back the Obama attempts to ruin this country or go down in flames.
