A Message From Jim DeMint

Actually, folks... it's more of a declaration of war - a declaration of war against the RINO Republicans.

Technically, the following was written by Matt Hoskins, Executive Director of the Senate Conservatives Fund... but in reality it represents a message from Hoskins' boss - Senator Jim DeMint.

Fellow Conservatives:

In the past two days since the election, House Speaker John Boehner - the highest ranking Republican in the nation - has suggested that "his" party will abandon its opposition to tax increases, amnesty, and even Obamacare.

I'm not making this up.

Despite winning another Republican majority in the House, Boehner thinks President Obama has a mandate to enact policies that destroy jobs, ignore the rule of law, and take over our health care decisions.

Obama is the first President in modern history to win re-election with fewer states than he won the first time, yet Boehner is waving the white flag on our core principles.

On tax increases, Boehner said, “For purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we’re willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”

On amnesty for illegal immigration, Boehner said, "A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I'm confident that the president, myself, others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all."

On the effort to repeal Obamacare, Boehner said, "Well, I think the election changes that. It's pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land."

This isn't leadership.

The only way for Republicans to improve their party's image is to boldly stand for the principles of freedom that made this country great.

Abandoning these principles and capitulating to liberal policies is not a strategy for success. The Republican Party has tried this approach many times and it doesn't work.

The Senate Conservatives Fund is committed to raising up bold, conservative leaders who have the courage to fight for the principles that will truly restore America.

You've probably heard the claptrap from the Republican establishment who are singling out a couple conservative candidates who lost their races. But, in their very next breath they brag about the party's bench, which is lined with strong conservatives like Rubio, Paul, Lee, and Cruz -- leaders you helped elect over their objections.

President Obama is much weaker than the mainstream media would like you to believe. Now is not the time to give up. Things in politics can change quickly and the future depends on our resolve.

Thank you for supporting principled leadership. Your efforts - past, present, and future - will save this great nation.
