Karen Testerman: On the Campaign Trail

Dear Friends,
According to GOP leaders, it is just fine to endorse a candidate who agrees with the party 80% of the time over a candidate who aligns completely with the principles of the party.  The 20% of the equation that gets left out is almost always LIFE.  The sanctity of life is a fundamental principle not just of our party but of our constitutional republic.  
It is our society's respect for life which has made us the longest surviving constitutional republic in the history of the world.  The path away from life is a slippery slope toward a host of moral problems that weaken the fabric of our society and will inevitably lead to collapse.  That is why there can be no bending on this issue.  No more 80% Republicans!  
The above pictures show a great scene of the GOP and one remarkable man in particular, Tim Pawlenty; however, this is not necessarily where you will find the most true conservative Republicans.  You find the true Republicans among your neighbors, friends, family and co-workers.
This is why, we as a campaign will be stepping up the number of events that will reach the every day conservative who values founding principles (INCLUDING life) rather than just the 80% Republicans.  
Starting Friday we will be going door-to-door in Bedford.  This will be the first in a series to be scheduled.  We will also be announcing Town Hall meetings throughout the state.
Also, this week we will be filming the first in a large series of fireside chats - Judy Mason on family and values, David Murotake on education, Robert Jursik on how to bring business into the state and Cynthia Mailhot on jobs.  Please let me know if you are interested in doing another topic! 
Please get involved in my winning campaign. Sign up, today!

What People Are Saying...
A Precise Diagnosis

Karen at Pawlenty Fundraiser
"All three Republican candidates for Governor correctly identify themselves as economically conservative, defending free markets and seeking to limit the size and intrusiveness of government. Only one candidate, however, precisely diagnoses the fundamental flaw in all State economic policies: their effects on New Hampshire's families. And so Karen Testerman alone can effectively implement their remedy.

It is natural to encounter politicians who will fret over the raw accounting for the welfare state, but only to the point of satisfying the government's bean-counting. For decades, the New Hampshire family has been forced to resist assaults, the result of aggressive liberal agendas and passive complicity within the GOP. They are strained attempting to pay higher taxes and fees. Many of them collapse trying to afford homes and transportation, education for their kids and groceries for their table. The New Hampshire family's very existence is threatened by the expansion of no-fault divorce, abortion, and legal recognition of homosexual marriage. There is virtually no area of family endeavor left untouched by the progressive ideology.

Karen Testerman will take all the necessary steps to roll back these statist policies but is the only Republican who will act from a family-first perspective. For Karen, statecraft is indeed "soul-craft," and defending our traditions and virtues must be among our highest priorities. Thus, her candidacy becomes especially critical. Bean-counters - and voters - ignore her diagnosis at their peril."
