YRs Electing Republicans…

This past weekend, Members of the NYYRC and Team Renewal traveled to Naugatuck, Connecticut to help fellow YR Rosa Rebimbas in her quest to win the 70th State Representative District in CT. We walked the district and knocked on doors to remind folks that even though there was a snowstorm heading into town, it was important to come out and vote for Rosa. The Special Election took place yesterday and by a 78 vote margin, Rose won (1043-965)! Time and again, YRs make all the difference in these races and on behalf of the CTYRs, I humbly thank all those who helped to put Rosa over the top.

Let’s harness this momentum and bring even more folks upstate to help Jim Tedisco in his special election campaign for the 20th Congressional District. If you’re interested in helping, we’ve targeted the weekend of March 21st and 22nd and Email Matthew Hindin at Campaigns@nyyrc.com for more info. (Special Election: March 31st).

Obama to Increase National Debt to $23 Trillion in Ten Years

The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Editorial Board wrote an article that favors President Obama’s spending priorities. Even they admit, however, “Under [Obama’s] most optimistic scenario, the national debt will have nearly doubled again in 10 years, to $23 trillion.” http://www.philly.com/inquirer/opinion/20090301_Editorial__The_Budget.html

$23 trillion. Just take a moment to say that out loud. Today, each American’s share of our $10 trillion debt is over $35,000. When will we say, “Enough is enough”?

New York City Tea Party: GREAT SUCCESS!!!

The New York City Tea Party held on Saturday was major success as 300 to 400 people came out to protest President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package. Tea parties have been organized around the country in support of Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC a few weeks ago. The event featured a multitude of speakers who expressed their anger over the ridiculous spending being passed by this administration and the return of a big government and nanny state policies to Washington D.C .

From being at the event, I have to say that it was an proud day for Americans who cherish freedom and liberty. For sure, a basis of dissent has been established in New York City against policies that destroy entrepreneurship and the free market in the United States. This event also made me realize just how powerful Facebook is as an organizing tool. The New York City Tea Party was established on Facebook just a few days before the event was held and the turnout was stil huge. Republicans are finally learning how to use the web to organize and get their message across and that is so awesome. Below is a collection of links about the event from around the web.

Free Republic (Commenters are on the message board are so pumped that the movement was a great success in New York City. They feel now that if the movement can be successful in such a liberal area, then it really is powerful)
