Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!

Friend,

Tonight we will close out what has been quite an eventful 2013. We have seen a resurgence in the conservative movement amid a storm of liberal failues in Washington D.C.

With that resurgance came a new and bold level of attention to the Contract From America, and now we are preparing for our biggest year yet!

2014 will be a major year for the Contract and the effort by millions of Americans to return our government back to its constitutional principles. With the midterm elections taking place this November, we will be launching a new initative in the coming months to help increase the Tea Party's voice in Washington!

From all of us here at the Contract From America, Happy New Year! We can't wait to see what 2014 has in store.

Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas

Friend,

What a year roller coaster year 2013 has been! We have seen our movement grow larger than "the experts" thought it would, and as Americans begin to wake up to the failures of Obamacare and the ever-growing intrusion of government into our lives, the Contract has continued to gain support and serve to hold our legislators accountable!

Friends, the future of the Contract From America is bright. We promise you that if we stick together the Contract will be the standard by which all conservative politicians are measured by!

From all of us here on the Contract From America Team, Merry Christmas, and a very happy and prosperous New Year!

UPDATED: 2016 Poll Now Out!


Take Our Presidential Poll Today!

CORRECTION: Due to a glitch with our email system, an email that was meant to be sent to you yesterday, December 18th, regarding the impending U.S. Senate vote on the budget deal, was sent this morning, December 19th. The vote happened yesterday and the Senate passed the bill by a 64-36 margin. The bill now goes to President Obama for final approval.

----

With all of the disappointment and disfunction in Washington, concerned Americans are ready for real and substantial change. The 2016 Presidential election may be 3 years away but the horserace has already begun. Now the nation wants to know, who do conservative Americans favor?

Unlike last time, tea party conservatives are getting more active, earlier. But who do they favor? To get a better idea of the conservative landscape, we created a 2016 poll that will send a clear message to the party insiders.

Unlike standard polls, this poll uses a "crowdsourcing" method that will offer unparalled insight into the opinion of tea party conservatives.

Click on the image below to take our poll:

Everyone we have put on our list has been on the receiving end of a great deal of Presidential hype recently, and offer conservatives a wide variety of options. 2016 will be a crucial election for our nation after 8 years of Barack Obama. We must be unified!

The results of this poll will be extremely important for the Republican Party and will send a clear signal of what issues are most important to us, who is the best messenger for them, and most importantly, who can WIN!

Do not delay! Vote in this groundbreaking new poll, and let's make sure we shake up the early 2016 jockeying by making our voices heard loud and clear!

URGENT: Call These Senators NOW!


Call These Senators NOW

Friend,

The budget deal in Congress is a horrific bill for America.

It increases spending, raises taxes, and even cuts our veteran's benefits! This deal fixes none of our problems and kicks the can further down the road.

This is not real leadership, rather the American people have been bamboozled once again by Congress.

Although the House has already passed the bill, the Senate will vote Thursday on the legislation. Now the future stability of America relies on our activism!

The country needs you to pick up the phone RIGHT NOW and call the Republicans below to pull out all the stops and kill this deal! If not us, our nation will continue down the dark road we find ourselves on.

Spin Doctors


Spin Doctors

Friend,

You've got to give them credit, they make it look easy.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that the government had sold its remaining shares of General Motors, recouping $39 billion of the original investment.

For those keeping score at home, that is a $10.5 billion loss!

But luckily the spin doctors in the media and the Obama administration are on the case to turn the narrative arround. In fact, some numbers claim the government saw a 768% return on investment!

"If you only count the things that make you look good and don't count the things that make you look bad, any investment will look good and any investment will be profitable," said Dan Mitchell, senior fellow at the libertarian-leaning Cato Institute.

The Contract From America along with its supporters in Congress such as Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are fighting every day to stop the government from gambling with our money!

Donate to the Contract From America & tell the government: No gambling with my money!



The reckless government spending coupled with the dangerous game of picking winners and losers in the private sector over the last decade have put out nation on a collision course with financial disaster! If we don't act swiftly, we could lose our country for good!

Luckily we have leaders and Contract From America signers like Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, to help bring back the principles of limited and effective government.

Donate to the Contract From America and stand with Sens. Cruz and Paul!

We can put America back on the right path but only if you are standing with us. The American people are sick of the government picking winners and losers with our money! It must stop!

Let's stand up and fight for the principles that made this nation great and end our reckless habits. Donate to the Contract From America today and let's bring fiscal sanity to Washington!

NEW POLL!


Take Our Presidential Poll Today!

2016 Presidential chatter is already taking place across the country and you can bet that early horse-trading is already underway behind closed doors in Washington D.C. It's in these meetings, when insiders think the public isn't paying attention, that the Washington establishment begins to pick their candidate.

But this time around, tea party conservatives are paying attention and we will demand that the Republican nominee is one of us and not just the choice of the D.C. Republican elite. To make this happen, we created a 2016 poll that will send a clear message to the party insiders..

Unlike standard polls, this poll uses a "crowdsourcing" method that will offer unparalled insight into the opinion of tea party conservatives.

Click on the image below to take our poll:

Everyone we have put on our list has been on the receiving end of a great deal of Presidential hype recently, and offer conservatives a wide variety of options. 2016 will be a crucial election for our nation after 8 years of Barack Obama. We must be unified!

NO NEW TAXES!


Paul Ryan Budget Deal Will Raise Taxes

Friend,

Yesterday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) unvieled their new budget deal, a horrible piece of legislation that raises taxes (or what Washington insiders like to call, "Fees") on the American people and does NOTHING to get us back on the path to prosperity.

These tax hikes are a slap in the face to hard working Americans across the nation who are seeing their hard work be taken advantage of to reward government irresponsibility!

The Contract From America was founded to fight back against these type of insider deals that are written behin close doors, kick the can down the road and leave the American people holding the bag. Donate right now to help in our efforts to kill this budget deal and demand NO NEW TAXES?

Along with signers like Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul we will continue to make sure that any deal having to do with the budget of the United States includes $0.00 of tax increases and fixes our biggest problems such as existing entitlement programs as well as Obamacare.

Stand with us as we take the fight to Congress over this assault on the American people's wallet. Help the Contract From America by donating today and let's tell lawmakers in Washington, D.C. that we are done being pushed around!

NOTICE: Conference Call about TPP - Wed Night

Hello,  

All of you heard from me recently about this issue and an action letter we have put together that will be going to key Congressional leaders in the House.  And we do need your help with that.  But for know, and I know you are all swamped with many activities you are already engaged in, but if there is any way possible you can join me tonight on the Florida Alliance conference call I think you should find it interesting, and not because of me.  It's the subject m atter and the guest I've arranged to have on with us (see his bio below).  He is going to update everyone on TPP - this monstrosity of a trade agreement.  See his bio below.

Please let me know if you can join us so I recognize you.  It's will be nice for Florida leaders to know they have fellow patriots from other states on board.


Trans-Pacific Partnership Conference Call
Wed, Dec 11, 9 PM Eastern

CONFERENCE DIAL IN: 712-432-3066
873154 (access Code)

Speakers: (bios below)
Charles Blum
Ken Mayo

If you want to know about the Trans-Pacific Partnership and what we can do to help put a stop to ti be sure to attend this conference call.

I know Amy posted a release that the TPP probably would be delayed until 2014, but we have seen legislation sneaked in during the Christmas break in the past, and, frankly, I don't trust them.  I believe this "treaty" is just a Senate issue, since they call it a treaty.  But be assured, it is not just a treaty.


CHARLES BLUM

 

Charles Blum has been involved in manufacturing competitiveness issues for more than 35 years.  As a foreign service officer, he held a series of diplomatic positions in the State Department from 1971 to 1980.  He then joined the Office of the US Trade Representative, serving as Director of Steel Trade Policy (1980-2), Deputy Assistant USTR for Industry (1982-3), Assistant USTR for Industry (1983-5) and Assistant USTR for Multilateral Negotiations (1985-8).  In both agencies, he helped to fashion and execute US policy on steel,aircraft and other industrial trade issues. Since founding his consulting company in 1988, he has played a leading role in developing policy responses to problems involving steel trade, currency misalignment,  fundamental tax reform and smart trade agreements.  In 2007, he helped establish the Coalition for a Prosperous America and currently serves part-time as its director for government relations.  He has taught as an adjunct professor in American University's Kogod School of Business.  Mr. Blum earned a BA in History from Eastern University and an MA in international relations from the University of Pennsylvania, also completing all requirements for a Ph.D. except the dissertation.  He studied at the University of the Americas in Mexico City and the Foreign Service Institute.



Bio of Ken Mayo

 

While attending college and seminary in the late 70's and early 80's Ken worked as the volunteer Educational Director for a conservative grass roots (pro-life) group in Pennsylvania, NJ and Delaware.  A group founded by Dr. Harold O.J. Brown in the home of Billy Graham. Thus began his activism.  Ken comes with a number of years consulting and management experience in local and statewide political campaigns, from county commissioner and mayoral races to Congressional and statewide US Senate campaigns. Since returning to Florida in 2008 (from Pennsylvania) Ken has worked as Florida's State Director and Director of Operations for two national organizations; one whose focus is on recruiting and training candidates and grassroots activists, and the other on community outreach. With offices throughout Florida in 2012 Ken directed the activities of 17 full-time field coordinators and volunteers that resulted in numerous bus rallies, speaking engagements and over 19 million phone calls and 100,000 homes being touched. Ken served in the US Navy from 1970 to 1974 as a Communications Specialist before obtaining his undergraduate degree in Biblical and Theological Studies and a Masters degree in Law.



Thanks!

Obama Ripped By Professor


This Is What The Constitution Is For

Friend,

During a recent hearing on Capitol Hill, George Washington University Law School professor Johnathan Turlet was asked by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) about the impacts of President Obama's unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act.

Here is what the acclaimed legal scholar had to say:

"The problem with what the president is doing is that he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He's becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid."

The President's blatant disregard for the central document that lays out the foundations of our government are rattling the very core of our republic.

Obamacare has become a living nightmare. The President has fumbled the rollout in every way imaginable and has left millions without insurance or has forced them to buy far more expensive coverage. It is clear that all of the concerns of the tea party are coming to fruition and the entire nation is taking notice.

If we are to save our great nation from having the Constitution stripped from it we need to unite with around the Contract From America and its signers in Congress such as Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul! This means speaking with a unified voice against Obamacare and an out-of-control executive branch.

It also means holding all of our leaders accountable to their words and actions. Help us do this by donating to the Contract From America so that we can send signers like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul more support in the Senate in the 2014 elections.

The Constitution was designed to ensure that no one branch became to powerful and that the government always remained attached to the will of the people. Under this administration, those principles are corroding faster than ever.

Donate to the Contract From America today and together we can save our health care industry, our Constitution and our republic!

The Fabulous Life Of...


The Fabulous Life Of the Government

Friend,

While you may be tightening the belt this holiday season due to the poor economic conditions caused by our government, you may be happy to know that not everyone is hurting.

That's right, the federal government is flying high!

Since all is good inside the beltway, the State Department has been sure to stock up on all the necessities like a million dollar sculpture by an Irish-American artist and $180,000 on booze in the month of September alone, just in the nick of time before the government shut down.

Doesn't it make you feel warm inside this time of year that our federal government gets to spend extravagantly while its citizens struggle?

We didn't think so.

Our government has drifted so far from their responsibilities of being careful stewards of taxpayer funds that their spending has become a slap in the face to the people that pay their checks.

It is time we get serious and start speaking out against the double standard that politicians hold in Washington D.C. It is time to make sure that the Contract From America and its call for balanced budget becomes a reality! Help us amplify our voice by making a donation today!

While a million dollars here and a couple hundred thousand there, may not seem like a major thing, it is indicative of the way that the government operates. Reckless spending runs wild at all levels of government and lack of oversight and leadership is to blame.

Donate to the Contract From America today, and together we will make this government worthy of the people's trust!
