Since most Americans live in areas where the incumbent congressman is completely safe, it can be difficult to know where to put your hard-earned money in order to make the most impact. That’s why the Rightroots list is perfect. A group of hardcore conservative activists – people I consider allies in the battle – have sifted through hundreds of races, candidates, polls, and cash-on-hand reports to pick a handful that will make the difference.

A Democratic takeover would surely start a terrible chain of events-including ridiculous investigations, even more spending, a bloody battle when Supreme Court Justice Stephens or Ginsburg retire, and even worse – generate momentum for the Democrats going into 2008. I don’t have to list the disasters we have in store if Hillary and her gang get a leg up in the race for the White House.

Recent legislative successes for conservatives have been limited, true, but I have no doubt that a Democratic Congress and President will roll back every last achievement we’ve had in 11 years:

Tax cuts – gone.
Hope in the Middle East – gone.
Protection from terror – gone.
Protecting the unborn – gone.
Defending the family – gone.

The election in just three months is as serious at they come, and I will be making my own contribution before the day is out. I urge you to do the same by supporting Rightroots candidates today.
