10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 9

Being less on social media has given me more opportunities to read and to watch The Blaze or listen to it in the background during my day. I usually have The Blaze on most of the time anyway however, not being distracted by social media has allowed me to really listen to it during the day.

Pat Gray Unleashed is a favorite! As the Morning Guy I love hearing him when I wake up.  I am thrilled that CRTV’s Steve Deace is now a crossover show on The Blaze. Deace is on after Glenn Beck Radio so the line up is really working for me.

The Blaze Radio

One thing Deace talked about today is how some Republican’s use catch phrases when it comes to getting reelected but the Conservative Review tracks their voting records so you can see if their words are far from their hearts. I like that he brought it up while asking listeners to guess what percentage some of the names circulating themselves through the media are on the Conservative voting scale. 

Oh, if only he could hear me screaming what I know through the television screen. The Scorecard is so my friend when it comes to calling out alleged Republicans in Congress. And I really like to use it when Military people run for office, as though their military service makes them more worthy to sit in the House or Senate. 

I am right there with you Steve. Great shows this week and I look forward to more to come. Thanks for talking about the things that matter to me.

Donate: Which Conservative Cause?

In today’s current political climate there is a revival of sorts going on in the Conservative movement. It reminds me of the Second Great Awakening, where churches popped up on every corner clamoring for members to be baptized in a particular congregation. So when a new friend asked me about my thoughts on where to participate and donate to help the conservative vision it seemed like posting here was a good place to start.
Often I give to the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Candidates directly: https://www.senateconservatives.com/races  I know SCF vets those they endorse. If a candidate lies to them and votes contrary to conservative principles, they revoke support for that candidate. That is why I check to see who’s who and to support those candidates in particular. Jim DeMint started SCF. It is a consistently conservative organization. 
I have donated to David Horowitz’s Freedom Center because there are many great thinkers and writers on FrontPageMag.com, and David has so many irons in the fire to assault the lies of the left. My last big donation was for the archival quality volumes of The Black Book of the American Left. I have been a big fan of his since the 1990’s.
Currently I am donating to Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) because it seems like Jim DeMint understands what needs to be done. I do so waiting to see what good he is bringing about. He is working to unite an army of activists in supporting honorable men and women. As CPI bears good fruit, I will be increasing that donation. 
As a Heritage Action Sentinel, my donations there began slowly and to be honest, my donation is embarrassingly minimal. 
By subscribing to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and Mark Levin’s CRTV, I feel like my time and money is well spent being well educated about the things that matter most. I really believe in Glenn’s vision and am looking forward to increasing donations to his company, MercuryOne.org
 
A few years ago I decided to check myself from getting sucked into funding every good cause. There are many wonderful causes, groups, and sincere people doing marvelous things.  It was overwhelming. Therefore, I prayerfully made a conscious decision to reduce and simplify my life, and to know where to best donate.  In order to focus on what matters most to me, I choose to give more money to a few organizations. 
Hope these thoughts are helpful.
