A Stimulating Thought   February 27th, 2009
How to use your $7.70 per week Obama stimulation       


More observations...

Have you been losing sleep trying to figure out how to use all that extra money you'll have because of Obama's stimulation? Engaging in the eternal debate between a value meal at Burger King or at McDonald's? Why not, instead, contribute it to the Republican party and its conservative candidates! That might be the best way to use the "stimulus" money to help the economy.

$7.70 per week is about $30/month. Perhaps 50,000,000 Republicans getting stimulated. 50,000,000 Republicans x $30 = $1.5 billion per month. Republicans around the country would have about $18 billion to work with in the 2010 election which is probably a tad more than necessary. Republicans could conservatively spend $6 billion to win back the Congress in 2010 and spend the remaining $12 billion to solidify the gains in Congress and take back the presidency in 2012.

Wishful thinking, I know, but consider the ramifications! If even 1 out of 10 Republicans contributed their stimulation, Republicans would still have an unheard of $1.8 billion available for 2010 and 2012.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm going to do it. I'm going to contribute my $30/month Obama stimulation to the Republican party and its conservative candidates. Each month I'm going to look around the state and country to see where my contribution can most help a conservative Republican. If I can't find a specific candidate, I'll contribute $30/month to my county's Republican party.

I started yesterday by contributing my $30 stimulation to Jim Tedisco who is currently running in a special election for New York's 20th Congressional District. That's the seat that was vacated by Kirsten Gillibrand when she was appointed to Hillary Clinton's Senate seat when Clinton was appointed Secretary of State. The special election is set for March 31st, 2009, so we have a month to help Tedisco raise money and win that seat. Contribute! We're going to win the Congress back one seat at a time... and we don't even have to wait until 2010 for this one.

Perhaps some good can come of this "stimulus" package after all.
