Here’s the deal, guys. We’re all conservatives, here. And, the Democrats are just waiting, praying even, for us to sit around and do nothing this election cycle. You know why?

Speaker Pelosi.

Yeah, cue the “Psycho” theme, right? Those harsh chords on the violin are our warning. We must do something.

Speaker Pelosi is what’s before us if we sit on our hands. I didn’t want to think about it either, but it’s true. Many are saying the House is in serious, serious danger, and the Senate may be, too. I’m not even going to address Senate leadership should Republicans lose control, because it makes me shudder so much, I can’t type properly, and that wouldn’t bode well for the remainder of this column.

Here’s the good news. You knew it was coming, right? You can do something, and it’s easy. The Rightroots team, of which I’m a member, has picked 21 competitive Republican candidates in House and Senate races all over the country. You can donate to any of them and all of them in one convenient place.

And, we need your help, Townhall readers. If I know you guys, you’re not the kind to sit around while Speaker Pelosi goes from mere nightmare to nightmarish reality.

So, go on over and take a look at our list of candidates. There are a ton of good ones, and the list gives you the opportunity to make a difference on a national level, even if there is no pivotal race in your state.

And, if you’re feeling the itch to get involved this election cycle, but not really sure where you’re gonna fit in phone-calling, and door-knocking, just click on over and make your donation and your difference right now, while you’re sitting at your desk. It will take just a few minutes, and even the smallest donation can make a difference in a lot of these close House races.

We’ve got Mike Bouchard taking on “Dangerously Incompetent” Debbie Stabenow in Michigan. We’ve got Diana Irey taking on Jack “Condemn the Marines as Cold-Blooded Murderers Before Their Trial” Murtha in Pennsylvania. We’ve got Michael Steele taking on the entire Democratic establishment in Maryland. We’ve got Thomas Kean taking on Democratic corruption in New Jersey.
