And that, according to the LD6 State Senator, is why we lose. No joke.
In her most recent blog post, the sophomore Senator set about to lecture the conservative movement on why it loses while the left and its allies like ACORN, win. We have no idea what has the Senator so upset at Arizona conservatives, but she begins by declaring us “whiners” while the liberals are “winners”. She then goes on to list a variety of behaviors which she feels the left owns the right on. Of course, with one of the most conservative legislatures in Arizona history, one has to wonder how Gorman thinks we were able to win all of those races. Instead, she makes it clear that we have been losing because we won’t get off of our collective rear ends. But its not just our labor that Gorman wants from our uplifting rears, its our wallets.
Item number one on Gorman’s list is “Give money to campaigns. (ouch)” Mind you, that’s not our “ouch”, that’s her original text. If we had to guess why Gorman is frustrated at conservatives not giving money to campaigns, it might have something to do with this. When you set an online goal of $20,000 and raise a lousy $120 from two total donors, you might get frustrated too. Then again, Gorman might spend more time analyzing why people won’t give money to her while they are giving to plenty of other candidates. We’re guessing it has something to do with their property tax bills.
Gorman goes on to describe all of the ways that money helps campaigns and decries the lack of financial support for the McCain for President campaign in 2008. You see, if we had only given more money to McCain, he would have won and we wouldn’t be stuck with Obama. Then she gets local. ”At the local level, giving is even more pathetic” she writes, following it with “At some point, true conservatives (like myself) have to realize that if YOU don’t care enough to invest in the future, then we will constantly be on the losing end, which moves us logically to the inevitable honest reflection of our own sacrifices to serve.”
Get it? The reason she doesn’t have enough money to think that the job is worth the sacrifices she makes is not because the donors disagree with her votes, but because we conservatives are lazy and cheap and don’t properly appreciate her and her sacrifices on our behalf. Now, doesn’t that just fire you up to grab your checkbook and make a maximum contribution to Gorman for Senate? You can do so here.
