Take the Pledge; Tell your senator to vote to win

No issue is more important than our national security, and at no time in history has our national security been more at risk than it is right now.  If we fail in Iraq the consequences will be devastating to Freedom and Democracy throughout the world. The United States Senate is considering a non binding resolution that takes us one step closer to that defeat in Iraq and the War on Terror. While this resolution is non binding it does send a message.. To our troops it says that the United States Congress will not support them and that the sacrifices they have made in protecting our National Interests will have been in Vain… To our Enemies it says that America does not have the intestinal fortitude to fight even when our own national security is at stake… To our allies especially those who are themselves under threat from Islamic Fundamentalists it says that America will not meet its obligations in the War on Terror, and that we will fold in the face of Islamic Tyranny. How many of our Allies will conclude that appeasing terrorists is their best hope of survival?    

We have two choices in Iraq, Win or Lose.. Tell your Senator to vote to win…

From Wizbang

Hugh Hewitt is leading this cause – and it’s an important one. Tell the Republicans in the Senate that you will not accept their voting for any resolution that does not support our troops or the surge in Iraq that General Petraeus says we need. Although the resolution does nothing to change policy, signing onto it will embolden our enemies. Here’s the pledge:

If the United States Senate passes a resolution, non-binding or otherwise, that criticizes the commitment of additional troops to Iraq that General Petraeus has asked for and that the president has pledged, and if the Senate does so after the testimony of General Petraeus on January 23 that such a resolution will be an encouragement to the enemy, I will not contribute to any Republican senator who voted for the resolution. Further, if any Republican senator who votes for such a resolution is a candidate for re-election in 2008, I will not contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee unless the Chairman of that Committee, Senator Ensign, commits in writing that none of the funds of the NRSC will go to support the re-election of any senator supporting the non-binding resolution.

If you are in agreement with this pledge, please say so publicly by signing it here. I did. And if you are a blogger and support the Iraq effort, post this pledge and ask your readers to sign it.

    And why should you confine the feedback to the Republicans? Those of us who have Democratic Representatives and Senators obviously would need to word their emails differently, but it is perilous to ignore them. If they don’t get the feedback, they will assume that they are free to go along with the party line.

  3. Valerie:

    The NRSC Pledge is directed towards the Senate Republican Campaign Committee and they have very little influence over the Democrats. I perfectly understand your delima regarding Senators who are Democrats… mine, I am ashamed to say are Schumer and Clinton…
