Mobilizing Republicans for Victory

Mike Avery is a firs-rate political thinker from Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, and he outlines the challenging steps necessary for Pat Toomey to beat Arlen Specter in the 2010 general election. In fact, Mike's recipe for success is one that will also work for Gov. Sarah Palin in her race for the presidency in 2012.

If the events of today, April 29, don't mobilize Republicans, we might as well as give the keys to the Republican party to the Democrats and get ready to become "subjects" for the rest of our lives.

James Carville has a new book entitled "40 More Years"; the premise is, Republicans have been so stupid that the Democrats are going to be in power for the next 40 years. Do you resemble that remark by Carville, or do you resent it? Speak up!

Let's review today's events: Arlen Specter has become a Democrat. That's a good thing, because now we can beat him twice. But not the way we are going. GM & Chrysler are now owned by the government and the UAW. This is the beginning of the end of our country unless we start now to fight back.

Attention Pat Toomey: Do you know that truck drivers are Republicans? When have Republican candidates ever made a trip to a truck stop in their "straight talk express" motorhomes? Never, is the answer.

Another question: When have Republican candidates ever made a trip to Sturgis, SD for biker week? Never is the answer. Did you know that bikers are Republicans? You have never thought about it, have you?

So I ask you, Pat Toomey, do you want to win the senate seat now held by Arlen Specter? If you do, we can help that happen. Put on some jeans and sneakers, and wear a "Pat Toomey for Senate" T-shirt, get into your motorhome and start going to truck stops, biker events, into the inner cities and to the outer cities, go to the WalMart parking lots and to the shopping malls, to the church parking lots after services, and anywhere else "street-level" Americans live & congregate.

Those of you who are receiving this E-mail, I am asking you to arrange a face-to-face meeting between Steve Miller and/or me (and any one else who might want to join the party) with Pat Toomey so that we can give him a road map to victory backed by a Pennsylvania army of thousands. Not with one of his flunkies, but with Toomey.

Right now, we are seeing a Republican party being led by the same people doing the same thing over & over again expecting a different result each time. It's not going to happen, unless we begin to take in new people with new ideas and then implement them.

Think of it this way, the Democrats are just jumping for joy seeing the same old people trying to lead the Republican party... they know it's a win-win for them. And a loss-loss for us.

So, we have nothing to lose by inviting a better class of losers to give it a try for us... hey, they might even help us win. Are you going to help change things? Or are you going to be satisfied with losing? .

Best regards to you all. Self-serving we lose. Together we can win. -- Mike Avery

A salute to Mike for his outstanding insights.

McCain actually did go to Sturgis last year. As you probably already know, Gov. Palin is going to be on American Chopper tonight

I've been told that AC's viewership is about 800,000

I'm hoping she goes to Sturgis this year and every year.

I think we'll see a lot more grassroots organizing, and a lot more campaigning among the ordinary folks if Palin choses to run. I've noticed that she has been studiously avoiding the beltway bandits. She can't really afford to be too closely identified with the bunch who got us into the mess in the first place, running as a complete outsider is best and more her style.

I talked to my brother-in-law last night for the first time in years last night, and was really surprised to find that he and his wife are also Palin supporters, but he was unaware of the level of pro-Palin activity on the net, something I got busy and informed of about.
