The opposition starts now

Start writing letters

So you’re disappointed in the election results? What are you going to do about it? We lost. Get over it. At least we don’t have people on our side claiming (falsely) that they are going to move to another country because their guy didn’t get elected. I guess that shows who the grown-ups vote for! So what can you do now that the election is over? Well, start gearing up for 2012. If there’s a candidate out there who you would love to see run for President, start writing letters to the candidate. Write their Chief of Staff and tell them that you would love to be a part of their team to run in 2012. Let them know that there are a whole lot of people out there that want to see them in the White House.

For me, that candidate is Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina. For you, maybe it is Bobby Jindal or Sarah Palin. Letters make a difference, so if you want your guy (or gal) to run in 2012, now is the time to start getting a grassroots movement together. I would like to see Governor Sanford at the top of a ticket with Governor Jindal in the #2 slot. That would be an ideal ticket for me. If Jindal doesn’t work, then put Mike Pence in the #2 slot. It is time for fiscal conservatives to take back the Republican Party and we don’t need to wait until 2012 to do it.
