However, not everyone can or wants to write columns or do talk radio, but that doesn’t mean you can’t kick maximum backside for God and country.

One major way of waling on the liberal wonks is via giving a slice of your hard-earned dollar to stellar conservative organizations. I know reading a column about giving during this economic crunch is about as appealing as a turkey watching Rachel Ray’s Thanksgiving Special. That said, the conservative movement still needs the drachmas to dramatically diminish liberalism everywhere it raises its screeching secular head.

Traditionalist can cripple cultural coarsening critters with their cash. Our nation is embroiled in a culture war of enormous consequences, and giving during this clash is . . . uh . . . kinda important.

Matter of fact, in the new book, Funding Fathers: The Unsung Heroes of the Conservative Movement Ron Robinson and Nicole Hoplin of Young Americas Foundation fame tell the untold stories of the men, women and families who gave financial gifts small and large to make the conservative movement a force to be reckoned with. Yep, behind every Ronald Reagan there are folks who put their money where their mouth is and give the “Ronalds” the wherewithal to rock-n-roll.

Check this out from Regnery’s press release regarding Funding Fathers:

“Without the contributions made by the men profiled in this book, conservatives would not have The Heritage Foundation or Young America’s Foundation to help propagate conservative ideas, they would not have, Human Events or National Review to communicate the conservative point-of-view, and Ronald Reagan may never have become president.

“It is important to us to honor the contributions of these men. They made the Conservative Movement a force to be reckoned with,” says Robinson. “Hopefully this book will inspire others to get involved in causes they believe in, to support them financially, and to contribute their time and energy to organizations dedicated to improving America’s future.”

In Funding Fathers, readers will learn:

• Conservative families give more money to charity than liberal families . . . even though liberals earn more

• How the mainstream media discourages conservative philanthropy, either by ignoring substantial gifts, or demonizing conservative donors

• How an exiled Russian prince became an American inventor and entrepreneur and helped save the Reagan Ranch for generations of young conservatives

“There are so many interesting people profiled in this book,” says co-author Nicole Hoplin. “They were passionate, committed to their ideals, fiercely intellectual, and wonderfully generous. I’m proud that their contributions will finally be recognized.”

Culture wars—like real wars with guns—take cash. Lots of cash. One reason why conservatives are schvitzing right now is the way Obama has been bank rolled by Soros and the like. If Barack didn’t have that kind of mad money behind him right now, he probably wouldn’t be contending for the Presidency but rather Seacrest’s job on Idol. But money, contrary to what The Beatle’s sang, bought him love.

The Funding Fathers will show you, the conservative warrior, in dramatic fashion how the movement came into being and how you and I can skillfully make it thrive via our strategic financial giving both now and for the next generation.
