Best Political Story of the Year-The Twisters!


Ending 2010 with the Best of the Rest

The last few months I have been trying to write a piece about a dynamic group of conservative women named, “The Twisters”. My health (or lack of) had forced me to put the piece off since before the November 2nd Election. Originally, I wanted to feature The Twisters and their their partnership with the Contract from America .  The candidates they supported had to sign it during their campaigns in order to be a Twister-endorsed candidate. Their “Twister Money Bomb” campaign for these candidates was featured on The Twisters Blog, The Twisters Money Bomb and on their Facebook page, simply titled, The Twisters.

I wanted to see the how and why of what these fearless women were actually doing. I figured just checking out their organization with the “Contract from America” and seeing which candidates they had backed actually won and for which office would be enough for a post about these gals. I was wrong…(Yup, I said it… LOL!)

I have to say that I was so impressed with their Purpose:“We’re here to walk the Conservative talk” and similarly, their Mission Statement: “To vet, back, and promote conservative candidates who have signed the Contract from America.” Additionally, they hit the homerun with me with their explanation of just what and who “The Twisters” are: “A tightly knit group of superpower wielding, patriotic, conservative bad-asses of the female kind.” Hoo-rah!

Before I get into my Rave about the girls, let me fill you in on their story as I have it from The Twisters themselves (with the help of Tina @0402sgrl on Twitter).

Our history is short and sweet. We ran into each other while ranting on Twitter. None of us had met before but we immediately recognized kindred spirits. I believe @Suziplasse came up with the term “Twisters” meaning Twitter Sisters but it soon became a double entendre. We are a force of nature both individually and together. We started chatting on conference calls and eventually it congealed into this organization dedicated to promoting conservative candidates. We have widely varying backgrounds but come together over our love of this country.

As a group they have a Twitter page from where @TheTwisters tweet info as a group and direct followers to their blog and FB page. Please go to www.twistersmoneybomb.com and on Facebook to their page called, “The Twisters”.

The Twisters hail from all over our beloved USA and they all are VOLUNTEERS…

Sofia’s Rave

I was lucky enough to have someone tell me about the Twisters not long after their organization came together. I started to follow them watching tweets and thinking, “WTH?” Why? Because NEVER before have I seen something come together so naturally in such a dynamic way in politics.

These women (noted above) epitomized the trend in America of conservative, smart, hard-working and patriotic women leading the way. Yes, we have been blessed with quite a few celebrity conservative women working the cable stations and making us proud. But as a grassroots organization this is the first group to pull itself together so quickly, so strongly and in such an organized way, it really impressed myself and many conservatives with whom I have had the pleasure of discussing Twister-mania!

These women pulled together a brand with such a timely fashion, it made my head spin. Impressed?, You bet. For quite a few years, I did business consulting and these gals…well…they are the goods.

What really moved me to pick their story as the political story of the year for ACBlog? The Twisters are about hope. I know, I know you’re thinking, PUH-LEEZ. you didn’t say “HOPE” did you, Sofia? Yep, I did. Mr. O at 16th & Pennsylvania NW hijacked the word but that doesn’t mean we can’t use the word so beautifully phrased throughout Scripture.Hah!

These women are the example to all of us about standing up and working for what we believe in. THAT’S why this is the best political story of the year. These women embody the American spirit. We are exceptional as a nation and The Twisters are the example of that very exceptionalism.

The Twisters will continue their success into 2012, I am sure. They are called to help us get back the very freedom being torn from our grasp.So, if you want to make a difference…go to their website, “The Twisters Money Bomb”, to their Facebook page, “The Twisters” and of course follow @TheTwisters on Twitter as well as each of the Twisters individually on Twitter (see above for links).

Know one thing: as long as there are women like The Twisters, there is hope for America because behind all successful men there ARE great women…like The Twisters…HOO-RAH!

For Twister gear, (so very hip, logo is definitely a icebreaker!) go to the girls Cafe Press page here.

LOVED DOING THIS POST “TWISTERS”!

Thank you and God Love you all,
Sofia
