An Introduction to the Industrial Revolution

Fellow Conservatives:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) fundamentally weakened the United States Senate yesterday in a desperate attempt to block a vote on the President’s stimulus bill.

Using a simple majority vote, Reid used the “Nuclear Option” to change the rules of the Senate so senators cannot offer amendments. In the future, senators will only be able to modify legislation if Harry Reid agrees to it.

Harry Reid changed the rules of the Senate because Republicans planned to force a vote on President Obama’s stimulus plan. The plan is so unpopular that it was going to be defeated by Republicans and Democrats when it came up for a vote. This would have embarrassed the president so Reid and the Democrats just changed the longstanding rules of the Senate to block it. You can learn more at

The Senate is supposed to be the “World’s Greatest Deliberative Body”. That means debating, amending, and voting on legislation — all things Harry Reid has sought to avoid during his tenure as Senate Majority Leader.

Folks, we’re teetering on tyranny. We must elect a conservative majority in 2012 to stop this madness.

This latest attempt to ignore the rules and force bad legislation on the American people is alarming, but it’s not that surprising. Democrats have been ignoring the U.S. Constitution and blowing through its stop signs for years.

Republicans can protect their rights in the Senate but it requires 41 Republican votes to keep the Democrats from cutting off debate. Unfortunately, too many Republicans lack the courage to stand together for the principles of freedom.

The only way to take our country back is to elect true conservatives to the U.S. Senate. We need principled leaders who care more about defending our freedoms than their own political careers.

I want to thank each of you for being members of the Senate Conservatives Fund and for supporting our endorsed candidates. Because of your support, SCF has invested over $500,000 in two outstanding candidates — Josh Mandelin Ohio and Ted Cruz in Texas.

We will be making more endorsements soon so please watch for our email announcements.

Take Action: Stop Obama, Save Lives

Marjorie Dannenfelser, SBA List information

Dear Friend,We’ve heard a lot lately from President Obamaabout his plans for job creation.But the truth is this:

President Obama only cares about your job if you work at Planned Parenthood, America’s abortion giant.

My name is Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, and I need just a minute of your time to help stop President Obama’s radical abortion agenda.

Urgent Action is Needed: Tell Congress to End Obama’s Radical Abortion Agenda and Defund Planned Parenthood.

Your voice is urgently needed. Here’s the situation:

  • Earlier this summer, elected officials in New Hampshire cancelled a $1.8 million dollar contract with Planned Parenthood. Instead of respecting the right of states to end taxpayer funding of America’s largest abortion provider, the Obama administration responded just days ago by contracting directly with Planned Parenthood.
  • After the Indiana legislature courageously defunded Planned Parenthood, the Obama Administration responded by calling their law “illegal” and is threatening to pull the state’s Medicaid funding.
  • And earlier this year during the federal budget battle, President Obama nearly shut down the entire federal government in order to keep tax dollars flowing to Planned Parenthood.

President Obama will do anything to keep taxpayer dollars flowing to Planned Parenthood, even during this time of economic crisis in our nation.

Take Action: Tell Congress to Stop President Obama’s Radical Abortion Agenda. 

The pro-life American majority must speak out now by telling Congress to step in.

Thank you for lending your voice to this important cause and I look forward to keeping you updated.
For Life,

Marjorie Dannenfelser
President, Susan B. Anthony List

PS: Across the country, states are working to defund Planned Parenthood, America’s abortion giant, of our tax dollars. But President Obama is arrogantly strong-arming the states and is doing everything he can to restore Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. It’s time for Congress to step in. Stand up for Life by sending a message to Congress today
