Turn Virginia RED
As campaigns heat up for next year’s elections, one state – Virginia – is ground zero in 2021. The off-year statewide elections feature a run for governor between Democrat career politician and Clinton crony Terry McAuliff, and Republican Glenn Youngkin, a businessman who has never run for public office.
The importance of this race can not be overstated. The historically conservative Commonwealth of Virginia has in recent years been taken over by liberal Democrats . This gives the Democrats great leverage over Virginia’s all-important thirteen electoral college votes.
But that can be changed this year! And we have a plan to help that happen.
This year, 2021, the strategy is to target the critical battleground state of Virginia in their off-year statewide elections. Until recently, Virginia was a red state. But now the governorship, the House of Delegates, and the state Senate are controlled by Democrats. Republican Glenn Youngkin is running a strong campaign for governor against Democrat Terry McAuliff. In the House of Delegates, the Democrat 55 - 45 majority Is being challanged by several very attractive and competent Republican candidates - and that is where "Defeat Liberals" will be focused with our "Flip Six Project.," giving the Republicans a 51-49 majority. But we want more than six - a lot more!
With the furor raging over rampant crime, Critical Race Theory, soaring inflation, and the hordes of illegals flooding across our southern border - and much more - conditions are favorable to Turn Virginia Red. Support for these candidates for the House of Delegates will enable them to run strong campaigns, turning out voters in great numbers, which will in turn benefit the Youngkin campaign. A strong campaign for a House seat will result in high conservative voter turnout in that district, which will also help the Youngkin for Governor campaign.
Our efforts to support these conservative candidates includes such activities as radio interviews and writing "Letters to the Editor." But the campaigns need money to buy everything from media time to yard signs. So we are strongly requesting that you send donations to the campaigns of our selected "Flip Six" candidates whose websites, with contact information, are listed below:

The Democrats are pouring millions of dollars into Virginia. They recognize the importance of keeping the state blue and the serious possibility that it can be flipped to RED. Their money can't buy the approval of the voters who are outraged at the extreme liberal policies that are being forced on us - everything from boys going into girls' restrooms to the surge in crime due to the liberal crusade to handicap police forces around the country. In Virginia, school lockdowns resulted in parents becoming aware of what their children were being taught in school. It was a disaster for the teachers' unions!
Also, Republican wins in Virginia would have a great impact on current Democrat congressmen who are trying to force through as much outrageous liberal legislation as possible while they still hold the majorities in the House and Senate. Since their primary consideration is getting reelected, Republican wins in purple Virginia will force on them an awareness that voter sentiment is not in favor of their extreme agenda. What an amazing thought!
We know the state is winnable. The Democrats know it too. They even sent President Biden to a campaign event for McAuliff. The report was that it was not terribly beneficial (wonder why). Polls show the McAuliff - Youngkin race as within the margin of error. Helping our "Flip Six" candidates turn out conservative voters in their districts could make a huge difference. Any donation, of any amount, means a lot to these district campaigns. And they need the money now. The election is just twelve weeks away!
About Defeat Liberals:
The “Defeat Liberals” campaign offers a very effective means of truly making a difference in the November elections.
This strategy is a major deviation from the actions we have promoted in the past, when bumper stickers were a popular way to show support for a candidate, as shown below. Since 2010, we have sent tens of thousands of bumper stickers to critical campaigns around the country. The message each election cycle was determined by the foremost issue of that year. One of the most effective was in 2010, the year Republicans took back the House of Representatives. Our message that year was
"Fire Nancy Pelosi - vote Republican." ( Obviously, that is an appropriate theme for 2022 also! )
When the nation's major concern was health care, President Obama repeatedly told us,
"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period." So our bumper sticker was -
KEEP your DOCTOR . . .
CHANGE your SENATOR (period)
Then, in 2014, we heard Hillary Clinton proclaim that the egregious slaughter of Americans at Benghazi, including our ambassador, was of no great consequence, and asking, "What difference does it make?" So our bumper sticker was -
"What difference does it make ?"
Our future is at stake !
In 2016, we had seen years of liberal judicial rulings from the Supreme Court, so the bumper sticker that year was -
Think "Supreme Court"
We could never have imagined gaining three new constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices!

Adopt a District (2010 Project)
This project, launched for the 2010 elections, rightly assumes that many conservatives who live in safe Republican districts want to help get our country back on a conservative track. With the increased awareness of the importance of every congressional race nationwide, those living in a safe district are more inclined to want to help Republicans who are challenging incumbent Democrats in a nearby district. The "Adopt a District" project offers a way to be a part of the action.
The obvious activities of any campaign include handing out fliers, putting up yard signs, campaigning door-to-door, phoning, and - waving signs at intersections (which can be really fun).
The most fun is poster painting. In 2010, our favorite was, "HONK to Fire Nancy Pelosi - The sign -wavers cheered as cars went by blowing horns!
POSTERS: Long before the primaries, volunteers will attend rallies and events to highlight disapproval of the Democrats' and Obama's agenda, and carrying posters relating to the subjects listed above as well as the many scandals that have come to light recently.
"Stop IRS targeting" - and "Benghazi cover-up" and all the others.
The favorite generic poster so far is, "KEEP your Doctor . . .CHANGE your SENATOR" (period)
Groups of volunteers should start painting posters well in advance. We don't have to wait for a primary-produced Republican candidate - we will start campaigning AGAINST the incumbent Democrat Senator, tying the Democrats to the destructive Obama policies - to the corruption - the illegality - the unconstitutionality - the immorality - the divisive, corrosive, and arrogant manner that defines this administration.
Advance preparation is key. If groups in each state plan an event, or attend the Democrat Senator's townhall or rally, or a Republican candidate's event, they should have a stockpile of posters to distribute to volunteers for the event. The impact is best if there is local TV coverage of the event. The point is to get people thinking - do we really want six more years with this Democrat in office - and the DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL OF THE SENATE - or should we vote them out?
When we do have our candidates, next summer, the voters will have had a long time to think about all this and the direction of the country. Let's help them see things our way. If we get voters thinking about all these issues, we will provide our candidates with momentum that they could not buy with donated dollars. It is priceless!
In the next few weeks, we will be setting up communications with various individuals and organizations in the targeted states. To get in on the fun, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.

Projects for Patriots (2012)
The poster painting project can be done anywhere. We allow a three-week window from date of order received to posters shipped. In 2012, we first shipped 80 posters to Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Florida. Orders for Ohio, New Mexico, and Nevada went out next, then New Hampshire, Connecticut, Colorado, Utah, and Minnesota. As of October 12, we had shipped 1,140 posters to campaigns across the country. Our posters go to football games, to rallies, to Obama campaign events, and are seen on streets and intersections in a dozen states nationwide.
Anyone can start a poster-painting group. We will provide all necessary information. All the volunteers have to do
is get a group together, get the posters and paint pens, maybe some snacks, and have a really fun time. One person may offer "my house, every Thursday afternoon," or a few friends could rotate. It's even fun to do at home alone. Whatever works.
With all "defeat liberals" projects, the plan is to build a network to campaign first at the congressional level, then coordinate
with the campaigns for Senator and Governor. The object is to turn out the maximum conservative vote, benefitting the
Republican ticket from Congress on up.
No one can say, "The country is headed over the cliff -
but there's nothing I can do about it!"
Yes there is - it's up to you.
