Fw: Can You Beat Goliath with $350?

Raging Elephants is a bold smart group--we marched with them at the 2nd 9/12 DC march.    
 
Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. - Louis D. Brandeis
"Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state." --Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
 
 
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." --Cesare Beccaria, On Crimes and Punishment, quoted by Thomas Jefferson in Commonplace Book
 
 
In Proverbs 25:26 we read that "A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well." Certainly, we would be faltering before the wicked if we chose to be unarmed and unable to resist an assailant who might be threatening our life. In other words, we have no right to hand over our life which is a gift from God to the unrighteous. It is a serious mistake to equate a civilized society with one in which the decent people are doormats for the evil to trample on.

Dear J,  
 
The special election for the Texas Senate District 6 really drove home some strong points for us at RagingElephants.org.  For quite some time, we have been saying that if the grassroots are not able to neutralize the financial pipeline of the Establishment and plutocrats that the dream of toppling their corrupt power would never come to fruition.  The SD6 race gave us another harsh and painful lesson in this unavoidable truth.
 
As reported by the Texas Tribune, our candidate and the only true conservative in the race, R.W. Bray, raised a whopping $350 for the month of January.  Meanwhile, the two socialist Democrats advancing to the runoff election spent a combined total of $615,000 with donations coming from Establishment Republicans.  This is utterly shameful! Read the entire story here
QUOTES Medgar Evers #1
The idea of starting a 3rd party is laughable. We simply need to eject the RINOs. STAMPEDE!
 
If not for the faithful supporters of RagingElephants.org that donated just under $3,000 toward our effort to assist Bray, he would have had essentially no weapons to fight with whatsoever. 
 
Question: Is it realistic to expect a good, genuinely conservative candidate to be victorious operating at a $1,757 to $1 disadvantage?  No, this is not David v. Goliath odds.  This is flea v. Goliath odds. 
 
Having fabulous rallies, informative meetings, and eblasting alerts certainly are critical components to a grassroots army.  Nevertheless, let's be perfectly clear.  If the Tea Parties and grassroots continue to resist appropriating a percentage of their hard-earned money to the cause of overturning the status quo, we are all wasting our time.  We all might as well roll over and accept the fact that we are going to continue to be ravaged by plundering tyrants.  It's that simple.
 
At RagingElephants.org we are constantly asking for the engaged, concerned and caring citizens of our nation and Texas to make a minimal sacrifice of $10 per month. Honestly, we do not think this is over the top. 
 
Would you please just take a moment and think of what $10 dollars is equivalent to in today's economy?
 
 
*                     Two McDonald's value meals?
*                     A large pizza? 
*                     Two packs of cigarettes? 
*                     A single martini?
*                     A ticket to the movies and maybe a tiny soft drink? 
*                     A man's haircut?
*                     A shoeshine?
*                     A carwash?
*                     A bucket of balls at the driving range?
 
And the list can go on and we'll be compiling one that's more extensive so that we all can ponder and meditate on precisely where we are as a movement, financially.  A collective meditation is urgently needed by this bunch!
 
Question: How much will your bill be this weekend to watch a yearly football game? Which is more important?  Let's see... Superbowl, or liberty?  Hmmm...  
 
 
Note: If every single person reading this email were to sign up for a $10 per month donation, our power as an organization (and, that means your power) would explode exponentially and we would literally become the preeminent political force for the grassroots in the entire state of Texas.  But until something approximating that commitment happens, we should give it up and bury ourselves in Fox News,  Friends reruns, and March Madness.
