The latest TBF poll is up on the sidebar. As usual, Right Klik has all the pertinent info:

The TBF poll in a nutshell: This is a poll designed to promote rising conservative stars. At the end of the week, the winner will be promoted by a network of over 80 conservative blogs and will receive a flurry of contributions from patriots across the country.
We’re working to fill a leadership vacuum that has resulted from the failures of the Washington-based Republican establishment.
Head on over to RK’s place, check out the worthy candidates and make your selection. Who deserves your hard earned cash this week?
When the Bob Etheridge story broke, I was pleased to learn that Bob had a viable opponent, Renee Ellmers. And as read more about Ellmers, I discovered that she isn’t just viable, she’s actually a formidable conservative candidate. As a Registered Nurse who works as Clinical Director of a Wound Care Center, Ellmers is keenly interested in taking a serious and proactive stand against the democrats’ health control legislation.
Now that the benevolent Democratic tyrants in Washington have appointed themselves to be our health care “deciders,” it’s good to see so many conservative health care professionals running for Congress. These are people who have demanding careers, but they’ve decided they can no longer stay on the political sidelines.
Both the top two candidates in this week’s photo-finish TBF poll are health care providers who are determined to dismantle ObamaCare and replace it with real health care reform. Unfortunately, however, conservatives like Renee Ellmers and Dan Benishek can’t always rely on the GOP establishment for the support they need. Recent events have reminded us that conservative reform is a threat to the GOP establishment.
That’s why we must unite at the grassroots level to defeat statism. We have to invest our own resources in order to restore our freedom. Don’t wait for someone else to do it. Get involved now by giving money directly to a candidate who deserves your help. Including today, there are only 10 Fridays between now and the November elections. Conservatives all over the country urgently need our help. This Friday, please make a generous donation to Renee Ellmers.
Donate here.
I just made my donation… now it’s your turn!

Don’t forget to make a note of Ten Buck Fridays in the donation form.

Right Klik is back from some Capitalist efforts and has once again done some fine legwork putting together the Conservative Candidate lineup for your information and edification. I’ve posted the new poll on the sidebar as well.

Right Klik also posted a telling compilation of video moments from the last few months which tells the story of why it is so important for everyone to get educated and involved in the Conservative movement.

We must oust the Democrat and RINO Republican aristocrats who are trampling our Constitution and have been doing so for the last hundred years or more. It’s not going to be easy, but it is necessary if we are to remain a free America. Voting for true Conservatives is the only way to achieve this goal within the framework of our system of government. To remain on the path we’ve been on is a road to serfdom.

The TBF poll has closed and Delia Lopez, from Oregon’s District 3 pulled out a victory. I’ve just made my donation and plan to make another to one of my favorite candidates from Texas, Mr. John Faulk as soon as I finish this post.

There are a lot of good conservative candidates out there who are preaching constitutional principles and we all need to support them as much as we can. Please, let me urge you to make a donation to Delia Lopez to help her combat the rights stealing monstrosity that our government has become.

More on Delia Lopez for Congress.

Ten Buck Fridays grew from an idea by Conscientiously Conservative.

Another week closer to November and another conservative candidate is the beneficiary of a TBF moneybomb. This week Joel Demos has been chosen by popular vote to receive the coveted reward. Joel has garnered accolades from none other than Ed Morrissey of Hot-Air, who writes:

“Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District may be one of the most liberal districts in the nation. It sent Keith Ellison to Congress in 2006 and kept him there in 2008 by a 48-point margin. It’s a D+23 district according to the Cook Report, but that almost certainly understates the Sisyphean task any Republican would have in pushing Ellison aside, even in a year like this. Instead of Sisyphus pushing the boulder up the hill, Joel Demos gives us a slightly more modern take on how this task looks — and what it will take to succeed…

“Joel has the unenviable task of door-knocking in this district, but from what I hear around the campfire, he’s taking that task and others very seriously…”

About Joel Demos.

Joel Demos on the issues.

Donate to Joel.

As RightKlik says:

Demos also took the task of winning your TBF vote very seriously. He needs your help! As he noted in the original intro to his clever viral video, “This only works if you donate!”
TBF is proud to help introduce Joel to conservatives all over the country, and we look forward to his victory in November. If you can, please send some cash to Joel Demos!
Giving money to hard-working conservative candidates feels good. I know, because I do it every week! I just sent $10 to Joel Demos; now it’s your turn:

A new TBF poll goes up on Sunday. Please keep the nominations and blog posts, Facebook posts and tweets coming!

Ten Buck Fridays grew from an idea by Conscientiously Conservative.

Congratulations are in order for Doctor Donna Campbell who is running against one of the 11 Texas wack-jobs that voted for ObamaCare. Lloyd Doggett decided to vote against the will of the people. He does not deserve to represent the great state of Texas any longer.
Ten Buck Fridays is shining a bright light into every corner of the country this year. Our goal is to help deserving conservatives across the nation as they fight to take the government back from the left-wing extremists who have defied the will of the people and have dragged our country to the precipice.
There’s no place for Pelosi’s liberal sock puppets to hide, not even in deep blue Austin, Texas.
Courageous conservatives like Donna Campbell need financial help. But if we all sit around waiting for someone else to provide that help, November will bring some serious disappointments.
Please give generously to this week’s TBF winner, Donna Campbell, M.D. I’ve sent my donation, now it’s your turn!
Campbell’s online donation form has a great place to identify your donation as a Ten Buck Fridays contribution.
You can find much more info on Doctor Campbell and the Ten Buck Fridays program at Right Klik.

The new poll has been posted and once again John Faulk has been included in the list. (Yea!)

I don’t think I need to tell any of my readers of my complete disdain for the Congresswomaaaaan Queen Sheila Jackson Lee, so get to clicking and tell your friends about Ten Buck Fridays!

Right Klik has the list of candidates posted over at his place so head on over there and get to know some good conservative patriots.

And speaking of voting, The registration deadline in Texas is one month before the election in November, that’s October 2, 2010. If you know a conservative who hasn’t registered to vote, encourage them to do so!

This week marks the first time that a candidate I nominated did not win the TBF poll, but I’m not upset about it. John Faulk made a great showing and I’m glad to see the many Faulk supporters out there who wish to dethrone Queen Sheila J. Lee.

I will, as promised, be donating to both of these worthy campaigns.

Mister Faulk also had a bit of fun with the straw poll, showing what a true gentleman he is. For the details on that and the info on the winner, Patricia Sullivan, I surrender the virtual podium to my worthy colleague, Right Klik:

For much of this week, I was wondering what we would do if our TBF poll ended with a tie. Patricia Sullivan and John Faulk were literally deadlocked almost every time I peeked at the poll results.
Making it even more interesting, Sullivan and Faulk made an intriguing deal. Now I’m looking forward to seeing Mr. Faulk in one of Patricia’s tee shirts!
Sullivan and Faulk both worked very hard for your vote, and I want to thank both of them for their good-natured rivalry. I wish them both the best of luck in their quest to unseat two of the most vile leftists in Congress.
In the final hours of this week’s poll, Patrica Sullivan pulled ahead for the victory, so now we focus our attention on her. If Sullivan wins the primary election on August 24, she will go on to face the loathsome Alan Grayson in November. If Sullivan is to succeed, she will certainly need your love, support, and appreciation, but she will also need some cold hard cash.
“But RightKlik,” you exclaim, “I don’t live in Sullivan’s district, and I’m not really keen on this idea of giving up a portion of my walkin’ around money for conservative candidates.” Well, Maggie has a few words for you.
Please give generously to Patricia Sullivan so she can go on with her noble work. I want to hear about some big numbers from Patricia’s people next week!
Patricia’s Donation Box is on the very front page of her website. Contribute to Patricia Sullivan for Congress:

“Thank you Patriots! Although it was an honor just to be nominated, we are thrilled that YOUR hard work and networking handed us a BIG WIN in the Ten Buck Fridays’ poll! Blogs will be spreading the word and you can too. Donate $10 and help us stay on pace to beat Alan Grayson!”

“Patricia Sullivan Won! My congratulations to Ms. Sullivan, a worthy opponent, who campaigned hard and got her base out! Losing to the future CongressMOM FL-8 was an honor. We all need to help her as much as we can. My leadership PAC will be making a contribution to her cause. I hope all of you will do the same. As the loser, I will follow through and post a picture of me in Ms. Sullivan’s campaign Tee shirt! GO GET’EM PATRICIA!”
More updates

Happy Sunday patriots! The latest poll is up and running on the sidebar.

Another outstanding list of nominees for this weeks TBF poll. I’ve nominated John Faulk from Texas’ 18th District, who is running against the disgrace that is Congresswomaaaaan Sheila Jackson Lee.

If you reside in Texas I would urge you to at least consider placing your vote for John Faulk. I normally don’t press readers to vote one way or another in these polls, but in my opinionated opinion the Congresswomaaaaan needs to go and Mr. Faulk will be an excellent choice. I will say that no matter who wins the poll this week, along with my TBF donation, I’ll personally be making an extra donation to Mr. Faulk’s campaign.

As is normally the case, Right Klik has the complete roundup of information on all of the very worthy nominees.

He also adds some reminders:

Shamelessly stolen from RightKlik:

This week the TBF poll results were tighter than ever before… but Chip Cravaack was the winner!
Please rally behind this week’s winner and give generously to Chip! (As shown below, don’t forget to note “Ten Buck Fridays” in the occupation field.)
Chip Cravaack is running to unseat an eighteen-term incumbent, Rep. Jim Oberstar (D-MN). Chip introduces himself in this video:
My interest was especially piqued with this comment:
“It’s going to take every American, every person in district 8 to take our country back. And it starts with every Congressional seat, every Senate seat that’s available. And we need every seat. Because we need to get our country back.”
As Lilac Sunday eloquently noted earlier this week in her open letter to Rush Limbaugh, this is exactly why TBF exists:

Dear Rush,

You’ve said that we should nationalize every House and Senate race in 2010. Well, I want to let you know that there is a small but growing group of bloggers who are trying to do just that. The effort is called Ten Buck Fridays.

Ten Buck Fridays is a small-d democratic moneybomb project of the patriotic blogosphere. Back in May, a blogger called Conscientiously Conservative declared her intent to donate $10 to a different worthy national Congressional candidate each week, and the concept is spreading across the web.

Each week, voters decide which conservative Congressional candidate needs their support the most, and everyone is encouraged to donate what they can to the winner. There is no middleman, no national committee; anyone motivated to donate sends their support to the candidates directly. The poll that closed last Friday morning was carried on 60 blogs and received over 2000 votes…

As of now, at least 65 blogs have helped to spread the word about Ten Buck Fridays, and over 2,600 people voted in this week’s poll!

Again, TBF congratulates Chip Cravaack on his win. Please send him some of your hard-earned money so that he can go to Congress and fight against the Democrats’ extreme agenda…

The new TBF poll is up in the right sidebar. RightKlik has the usual outstanding roundup of candidates for our consideration and has stepped up promotion of the idea a couple of notches with the help of a um, well, a  colorful day!

Lilac Sunday: My email to Rush Limbaugh

I’m all for it. Let’s contact these guys and drum up some more grass roots support for the program.

You go, Lilac Sunday. Now I’ve got another addition to the blogroll to make, which really isn’t such a bad thing, after all.

Van Irion wins TBF poll!

Woo Hoo! My nominee won!

Not to gloat or anything. The other candidates are all very deserving, I’m sure. It’s just that, as Ruby Slippers says:

Anyone willing to clean the manure out of the Capitol and bring a lawsuit against ObamaCare has my support.

Right-on Ruby, Right-on!

As usual, RightKlik has an excellent article explaining Mr. Irion’s political positions and a great video of Van on Glenn Beck.

You know, now that I look, I see that I have yet to add RightKlik to my blogroll. How in the world could I let that slip by? Sorry about that omission RK, I’ll fix that error shortly. It will make a future installment of my Robo-Love Experiment in linking a bit more difficult fun and interesting, but I’m not one to back away from a challenge. Now let’s see, how to work “RightKlik” into a story line… Hmmmm.

Check you guys later. I’m off to make a donation and do a little blogrolling.

Cheers!
