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.

When it comes to some of these races, particularly Michigan and New Jersey, Townhall readers have the unique chance to turn these important Senate seats from blue to red with just a couple bucks. Can you feel it? You know you want to jump in, get that good ol’ Daschle-toppling feeling of days gone by.

This week, we want to get 100 donations for each candidate on our Rightroots list. With 21 candidates, it’s a challenge, but one we can easily meet with the help of dedicated Townhall readers. If you’ve been thinking about donating, and just haven’t gotten around to it, or, if you’ve been thinking you don’t have much to give, don’t sweat it. We want you involved. Every little bit can help, especially in a tight House race.

In the past week, the Democrats have threatened ABC’s broadcast license because the network aired a docudrama that called into question the legacy of the Clinton years. They’ve accused Republicans and the President of politicizing 9/11 simply by observing it. And, one of the Dems’ Hollywood buddies said, “radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.”

Do we want these guys in charge? They’re counting on you to do nothing in ’06. You can dash their hopes by pitching in on the Rightroots effort, right now, right there from your computer.

Thank you so much for your help. I wouldn’t ask you if I didn’t think our Townhall readers were up for it. These candidates are solid candidates who share your values. I’d be honored and appreciative if you’d consider giving them a hand.

Speaker Pelosi? Surely, we can prevent that.
