Normally at RedState we post a brief description of any videos we post. But this one… you just have to watch it.

I agree.

Rep Pete Sessions wrote at RedState.com yesterday:

Today I am writing with a clear and immediate message we cannot afford to ignore: 39 Days… that’s all the time left for you to make a difference this election cycle.

I cannot stress this point enough: we are in the final stretch. Democrats are desperate – and without your support Nancy Pelosi will still be holding the Speaker’s gavel in 2011.

Congressman Sessions was introduced the National Republican Congressional Committee’s 39 Days Campaign. I’m not necessarily saying to support it. I simply want the point to sink in that we only have 39 days left to get our pro-life candidates elected. Do you or don’t you want your district or state legislated by pro-lifers? Then make sure you’re helping someone(s).

It is we who are making the difference in this election – Americans with conservatively fiscal and social concerns. An interesting piece in Politico September 22 pointed to the energy on our side and lack thereof on theirs:

Twice in the past week, House Democrats used closed-door meetings with Speaker Nancy Pelosi to deliver an urgent message: They’re being crushed on the airwaves by outside groups, and they need her to do something about it.

In the meetings, according to people present, Democrats cited the nearly unmatched advantage Republicans are enjoying from conservative, third-party organizations….

[T]here is a canyon-size gap between the two parties right now when it comes to spending by outside groups.

As of Monday, pro-Republican third-party organizations had paid for a total of $23.6 million worth of ads, while Democratic-aligned groups had spent just $4.8 million on TV….

While they are outgunned by outside groups, House Democrats are not being shut out on the airwaves. Many of their candidates in competitive races have more cash than their Republican opponents, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved $49 million in TV ads.

Still, with conservative-leaning outside groups ratcheting up their TV campaigns since Labor Day, Democrats are growing frustrated – and angry….

But House Democratic aides are candid about the disadvantage they’re facing – and fuming about the lack of financial support they’re receiving after their members have cast a series of tough votes.

These officials are particularly angered by the relative absence of support from the environmental and pro-health care groups that were so aggressive in lobbying House Democrats to support energy and health care reform legislation.

“Where are those guys?” a top House Democratic aide demanded. “There is very real and growing resentment over these groups being AWOL.”

And this Democratic aide fired a warning shot at liberal groups, suggesting that their absence from the campaign could have “long-term ramifications.”

“When these interest groups come to Democrats and say, ‘We need you to do this,’ a lot of Democrats who survived 2010 will say, ‘You weren’t there for us then.’”

Liberal-leaning organizations answer that it’s not a matter of desire but something more simple: They don’t have the money.

And that’s partly because, even after the historic accomplishments of the current Congress, some on the left are unhappy that priorities, such as a climate change bill, weren’t passed.

“I do honestly think that environmental donors, like a lot of progressive donors, are a little discouraged,” said Rodger Schlickeisen, president and CEO of Defenders of Wildlife. “They were hoping for more and are now saying, ‘J****, what do we have to do to make a difference here?’”

Even if none of the liberal groups mentioned have anything to do with abortion, they comprise part of the synergy that gets pro-aborts elected, just as the fiscally focused Tea Party is getting pro-lifers elected.  So if liberal groups in general are demoralized and not helping their candidates, this is good.

That is not to say pro-aborts aren’t in the game. They have more loose change thanks to abortion profits as well as government funding for pet projects that frees money to help elect politicians that give them the abortion funding. For example, from the Associated Press yesterday:

An unusually large contingent of female Republican candidates with strong anti-abortion views is heating up debate on the issue and could change the political equation in the next Congress….
Abortion rights groups plan to step up their work in CA, hoping that publicizing [Carly] Fiorina’s opposition to Roe v. Wade will provide a boost to [Barbara] Boxer. Planned Parenthood affiliates have proposed spending $1 million on the race, while EMILY’s List, which backs female candidates supporting abortion rights, is reaching out to women with mailings, phone calls and ads to highlight contrasts between the candidates.
So this is it. This is the big show. This could be our year. Pro-lifers are well known for being boots on the ground. Get involved, or get more involved.
