Not One Red Cent for NRSC

I wanted to give readers the heads up on Robert Stacy McCain's new blog, "Not One Red Cent."

Stacy's launching a boycott of the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC). Last week Senator John Cornyn, chair of the NRSC, endorsed Florida Governor Charlie Crist for the GOP primary in the Sunshine State. The problem is that, as moderate Reihan Salam confessed, "Crist is not a conservative." And as I noted earlier, the Florida primary is emerging as a key test for the future of the GOP."

Here's Stacy's sidebar anouncement at
Not One Red Cent:

On May 12, 2009, The National Republican Senatorial Committee betrayed its mission, betrayed Republican voters, and betrayed the Reagan legacy.

The NRSC sided with an establishment candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in a Senate primary against young conservative leader, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.

Republicans across the country were outraged by this action, which is only the latest betrayal of grassroots conservatives by the out-of-touch GOP elite in Washington.

The word went forth among conservative activists: Do not give money to the NRSC. The current chairman, Sen. John Cornyn, must resign. His replacement must pledge to keep the committee neutral in contested primaries. Let Republican voters -- not party elites -- choose Republican candidates.

This is where the conservative grassroots rebellion begins. When the NRSC asks you for money, tell 'em:

Same old, same old. The NRSC, Senator Rick Santorum and President George Bush all went to bat for Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) in his tight, 2004 primary campaign against Rep Pat Toomey (R-PA).

We see how well that turned out.

Do what I did. Openly endorse Marco Rubio and make sure to help out his campaign. I am just tired of the Washington insiders telling us who can win and who can't. That is how we got Sen. John "F--- You" McCain in the first place. Remember, these same insiders said the same thing about a president named Ronald Reagan.

This is the very reason that I believe that the Republican Brand is defunct. A friend of mine said the difference between republicans and democrats is the same as between 7-up and sprite.

Best analogy I've heard in a long time.

My letter to the GOP/RNC

We are witnessing a calculated power grab and it will end in blood. I have seen it in the service of this Nation in foreign lands.

Stand guard.
