The below letter was sent November 30 to all U.S. Senators and Representatives. I drafted it with some edits by Colin Hanna. It was sent out through Coalitions for America. Colin Hanna is CFA President, and I am CFA Vice President.

An Open Letter to U.S. House and Senate Republicans

Dear Republican U.S. Representatives and Senators:

You are entering into a period of testing.

In the House, the nation elected in 2012 one of the largest Republican majorities in the past 100 years. You have a mandate to fight for conservative principles that is arguably much broader than the one that narrowly reelected President Barack Obama claims to have for his leftist agenda.

Of course, House Republicans alone cannot pass a law, but united you can stop any bill which violates the principles you publicly committed to support.

In the Senate, you have more than enough Republicans to ……

The Leadership Institute is a thrifty Arlington, Virginia based conservative  educational organization trying to reach out and educate our college age sons and daughters to disabuse them of all the leftists lies that are intrinsic in our universities.   LI is telling all these students, soon to hopefully be employees, that Obama is destroying their future standard of living.  In particular, with Obamacare now the law of the land, health insurance premiums  for young working adults will likely DOUBLE  or more by next year because of the mandates, including the much touted under 27 year olds must be allowed to stay on their parents insurance.  Economics 101 (which should be required of all college students) tells us that you can’t ask insurance companies to take on more risks and definitely more claims to pay,  without  the cost being passed on to the customers, the policy holders.  Hard working young people (those not needing to stay on a parent’s policy) are getting screwed under Obamacare and unfortunately most don’t yet know  how Obama has betrayed them.

I still don’t trust the GOP leadership.  My suggestion is to give to your local and state candidates whom you know are solid conservatives.   Probably too much money is going to Dr. Dan Benishek and not enough to other worthy conservative candidates.   If there is a PAC I would trust, it would be Sarah Palin’s

I have never been a big proponent of donating to politicians, but I believe this year is an exception—we have to elect Republicans to get rid of Pelosi and to repeal the abomination of the new healthcare law.

But your money will be best spent donating to  an organization like  the Leadership Institute which is trying to educate that very important 18 to 34 demographic which will be crucial to elect reliable conservative Republican candidates in November.

campusreform.org launches today–please check it out. Your country needs you.

Alright,  you’ve gone to your local Tea Party and maybe you were  even  able to go to the 9-12 March in DC.   Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.    Consider registering at  campus reform.org if you are presently a college student or if you are an alumna or if you simply want to be a “friend” of a particular college.  This is a new massive website that the Leadership Institute in Arlington Virginia is launching today with a “sub website” for almost every 4 year college in the country.  The goal is to organize conservative college students and also their parents, grandparents,  and friends to form conservative enclaves for activism and teaching purposes on our university campuses.   Even if you send a conservative son or daughter to campus, they are inundated with leftist ideology.   The Leadership Institute is trying to help young and not so young conservatives fight back in the spirit of the Tea Party movement.

The wise elderly was the only age demographic that strongly voted against Obama.    You wise folks need to help your college age granchildren find the conservative “light.”

The younger than 30 demographic helped to elect Obama.   We cannot let that happen again.
