* Update at the bottom
June 30th marks the end of the second quarter for SarahPAC, Governor Palin's political action committee. That's tomorrow. It is important that as many as are able contribute to the work that the committee is doing. Governor Palin donates generously to campaigns and assists candidates who have a heart to serve with common sense. So your money is definitely seed being sown into good ground and will yield a harvest. Please click here to go to the official SarahPAC website and contribute whatever you can. Your efforts are more important now than ever. Let's help take our country back.
A couple weeks ago, C4P's Doug Brady detailed the importance of your help in this second quarter. He wrote:
The end of the second quarter is rapidly approaching and now, more than ever, it’s important for us ordinary barbarians to have a voice in the future direction of the country. America is rapidly approaching the point of no return and the political establishment in Washington remains concerned only with maintaining their own fiefdoms of power. If things don’t change, and soon, our children and grandchildren will not live in the same America we grew up in (see Greece).
Obama has America speeding down the road to socialism and bankruptcy. We can’t afford to nominate another plastic, flip-flopping politician with his finger to the wind who will, at best, manage the adventure more efficiently. We’re too far down this road already and the country is too broke to be stupid any longer. And make no mistake, if the Republicans nominate Mitt Romney or someone of his ilk, we will continue down Obama’s path. To be sure, we may travel a bit more slowly, but the ultimate destination will be the same. We need someone who will not only bring this trip to a screeching halt, but turn the nation around and head back in the direction our founders envisioned.
Reversing course will not be easy. We need a leader who is not beholden to the special interests which infest Washington, and this includes the party establishment. Witness Governor Palin’s experience in dealing with her own party in Alaska and, more recently, Nikki Haley’s experience with the Republican establishment in South Carolina. In both cases, the political establishment fought tooth and nail against the agents of change when they perceived their comfortable hold on power was threatened, even if the threat emanated from within their own party. With the establishment, on both sides of the aisle, it’s not about ideas and the well-being of the country, but rather the perpetuation of their own hold on power. We don't have to settle for this. Indeed we can no longer afford to.
Defeating the political establishment in Washington will be even tougher than it was in Alaska. What they lack in support from ordinary Americans is more than made up with money. And let’s be clear, the establishment is awash in money and will spare no expense to ensure one of their own gets the nomination in 2012. A true reformer like Governor Palin has the grassroots and passion, but she must be able to broadcast her message effectively. This takes money. The establishment-anointed candidate owns an army of political pundits who are constantly dispatched to the media to marginalize Governor Palin and tout the inevitability of their candidate. This cannot go unanswered.
Governor Palin demonstrated her grassroots power and influence on Super Tuesday and the media was forced to take notice. This demonstration of strength forced the establishment candidate out from the shadows, but opportunities such as this don’t occur very often. When they do, we must seize them. Strong second quarter fundraising totals by SarahPAC immediately on the heels of her impressive showing on Super Tuesday would reinforce the impression that Governor Palin is a political powerhouse, both in the media and, by extension, the general population.
There is only two weeks left until the deadline and strong second quarter results for SarahPAC are crucial to maintaining the momentum generated by Governor Palin's stunning Super Tuesday successes.

That was two weeks ago, and the end of that second quarter is a day away now.
The nation has taken notice of how well those endorsed by Governor Palin have done--people who believe in the Constitution, the family, the greatness of America, people who want to see our elected officials act prudently with taxpayers' money, and people who have offered themselves up not to be served, but to serve. SarahPAC enables the Governor to continue to aid in this important and urgent mandate. Please help in any way you can. Please do so today.
UPDATE: Today is the last day to make a donation to be included in SarahPAC's second quarter. It's important to support a cause that is making such a difference in America. Consider contributing what you can before midnight tonight.
