There were several inspiring speeches delivered at last nights Republican National Convention. Talk of unity filled the air. Many GOP leaders praised the grass-roots. But behind the scenes, the RNC power grab has exacerbated distrust between a diverse group of rank-and-file activists and party bosses.
I have no patience for the Republican party-bots telling these front-line soldiers to shut up in the name of unity and to hide in-fighting because the Left will publicize it. It should be publicized. Conservative activists and Tea Party members have worked their asses off within the system, doing the groundwork of righting the wayward GOP ship from the inside. These are the door-knockers, sign-makers, phone-bankers, and message-spreaders who fueled the Tea Party revolution and who enabled the 2010 GOP midterm victories. They fought for and earned their place at the table.

The Republican Party has abandoned me.
But in reality we are only fighting one.
Who want to "Progress past" our Founding and the Constitution.
What if WE want to remove an ineffective Romney in an upcoming primary? How can WE do that if he can front load winner take all states and can fire state delegates and put his own in their place?
If I may add an addendum to that, if you can't capture both, ensure the opposition party is impotent to your challenging of the form of government.
I called my state GOP earlier. At least I made my voice known.
I will start a new party if necessary.
I will not submit.
The GOP in Michigan knows we’re mad because we kicked some of Mitt’s buddies to the curb back in May after they voted to change the delegate allocation rules the night after the primary.
I remember when we spoke of how progressive Gingrich is, but I liked him for his fight. He wouldn’t hold back, I don’t think
Looks like he’s a piker compared to Romney.
I think he’s progressive but without the leash that Romney wears which makes him a far safer choice.
Well, I don’t think there’s a national politician who isn’t one.
If we can control the House and Senate “Mittens” will fall in line, or mostly in line. I also expect that at some point there will be a legal challenge to these rules and the e-GOP will lose.
How do we defeat Romney, easy make sure he doesn’t win, Crush and defeat his supporters, they are Gadianton Robbers.
