Urgent Message From the Desk of Dick Morris
Dear Fellow American:
America is at a crossroad, perhaps the likes of which we have never seen in our history.
This coming election in November will determine the shape of a new Congress and how our nation will look in 10, 20 — even 100 years from today.
We want a nation our Founding Fathers would be proud of. Not one that Barack Obama is seeking to create.
I believe that, as President Reagan said, we can “make America great again.”
This is why I have joined with other national leaders in supporting the “Super PAC for America.”
We have a very ambitious goal for Super PAC — I am calling it “Project 100.”
Our plan is for the Republicans to win 100 seats in this year’s congressional elections.
Yes, that’s right — 100 new seats!
I have studied the numbers very carefully, and we believe this can be done and will send a shockwave through Washington and around the world.
Right now the Democrats control the House of Representatives by 39 votes
Republicans need to simply win 39 seats to gain control
If the GOP gains simple control of the House, that would be a positive change.
But it would not be an overwhelming mandate.
We need to win a very large majority to send a powerful message to the establishment.
With Project 100 we will win with a very large majority.
And with this mandate we can repeal Obamacare.
We can put in the reforms that will put our country back on a proper financial footing and deal with the staggering debt our nation faces.
That’s why I am teaming with the Super PAC for America’s “Project 100.”
And we need your help to do it.
Here’s our strategy.
We both know there are 50 likely seats that Republicans will win this year.
Right now, the national committees and other donors are contributing heavily to these 50 Republicans in key races across the country.
These 50 races are, for the moment, the most likely winners.
Super PAC’s approach will be even more aggressive.
We are going to select the 50 races we believe are “second-tier” races, ones that are not in the priority list for the national committees. Ones the Democrats thought were “safe seats.”
With a relatively small amount of money spent by Super PAC in these districts we could win an additional 50 seats, giving Republicans 100 new seats for this Congress!
Imagine how voters will vote in these additional 50 swing districts if we clearly spell out to them how Obamacare is going to reduce their Medicare, as seniors see massive cuts of over $500 billion in benefits while Obama adds 30 million new people to the national healthcare system.
As you know, private insurance rates are ballooning, and the cost of federal outlays are set to zoom over a trillion dollars thanks to Obamacare.
How will these independent swing voters feel when it is clearly explained to them that the Bush tax cuts are expiring, and they are set to get hit with the largest tax hike in history?
President Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised to vote on the Bush tax cuts before they recessed and went home for elections.
But typical of them, they lied.
There has been no vote on the Bush cuts.
I believe when independent voters hear the message we are going to send them we are going to win new 100 Republican seats, giving Republicans a majority of over 60 votes in the new Congress!
This will not only send a powerful message to the establishment in Washington, it will also create a powerful force for change and the restoration of the Reagan agenda in Washington — less government, less taxes, and a strong national security.
These are the ideals of the tea party movement. They can become real.
Our efforts here are also not pie-in-the-sky dreaming. They are smart politics.
The more we spend on these “safe Democratic seats” the more we put these incumbents in danger.
The Democrats will have to tie up incredible amounts of resources to defend these second-tier 50 seats that they once thought were safe.
They will not be able to help other Democrats in trouble in the first 50 seats now at risk.
In football we would call this strategy “prevent offense.”
What makes all of our efforts possible with our new Super PAC was a recent Supreme Court ruling that took the cap off of the $5,000 limit that individuals can give to such political action committees.
As long as our Super PAC never donates to an individual campaign and solely engages in independent expenditures on behalf of candidates, we have no limit on the amount individuals or corporations can donate.
The Super PAC of America is in a unique position. With your help we can act as the guardian angel for this second-tier of 50 congressional seats that are up for grabs and give support to these candidates by taking commercials across television, engaging in direct-mail and online efforts, and setting up phone call banks across America.
Our goal is very simple. In the next four weeks we are seeking to raise $20 million for Project 100.
If we divide $20 million over 50 districts it would be an expenditure of approximately $400,000 per district.
But we believe many of these districts are in small media markets where that money can go very, very far. You can have a powerful impact in a short time. You can change the direction of our country by donating to us.
As I said, there is no limit to how much you can donate. A $400,000 donation will give us one more Republican in Congress. A $100,000 will make a huge difference in our media efforts, even $50,000.
Most Americans can’t afford such large donations. Even $1,000 or $500 will help. A donation of $250 can buy a TV ad in many districts reaching hundreds of thousands. Anything you can give will help.
President Reagan used to say at the end of his speeches, “If not us, who? If not now, when?”
I can’t add anything more to his statement, his call to arms, today.
Now is the time for us to act.
