Or would that continue to turn off your local conservartives and TEA Party members?
It’s not likely your “target groups” are ignorant of what your organization actually does...
Where in Michigan are you? I am the current 1st Vice Chair of our County GOP and the President of our Republican Women’s Group here in Arizona. (I also won election to be a County Supervisor).
It’s become more and more difficult as we lose national elections, to attract more people. And I live in Arizona! Let me think about this and I will contact you. Please let me know where you are in Michigan, as I know some Party leaders there as well. - CHEERS!
Fairfax County VA Republican Party - The trouble I have with this whole thing is it mostly lip service especially at the party level. We tried to get a Veterans committee/group/hoard going to provide first hand veterans input to candidates and representatives in addition to highlighting veterans support. The county party required party membership to participate which turned most “independents” off so nothing ever came of it. We need to get some real out of the box thinking and problem solving or we really are going to have problems.
Anyway, thats my 2 cents..
Interestimg will review after holidaze
Banquets with door prizes work well, especially if the door prize is a nice rifle.
The Dems have pretty much announced that they are against the constitution. Young people need to understand it and protect it or they won’t be free in the future. Immigrants did not come here to be poor peasants. They came for the wealth and personal freedom that the constitution makes possible.
Our Tea Party in Texas is not happy with the excesses of the Federal government turning the “war on terror” against Americans and violating our constitutional rights and privacy to the extreme extent Obama has done.
They are real unhappy about agenda 21.
They heard loud and clear idiots in DC speaking out for shariah speech controls in the US.
They want religious freedom. (no micro-managing health insurance mandates.)
Soldiers and vets need political advocacy and respect. DHS is treating them like terrorists and mentally ill due to the normal process of the need to re-integrate into society. They should have employment preferences/employer incentives to hire them.
Public schools are a dead end. They need to be replaced with something innovative.
State universities are focused too much on dead end social studies majors and leaving graduates unprepared for jobs and the US workforce is being weakened.
If I were you I would gather as many TEA Party activists contact info. Get their phone numbers especially the leaders or like me the big mouth of our groups, call them and sit down and have a coffee with them on a one on one basis. When we had a new Chairman step up 7 or 8 years ago, I was one of his first phone calls. We had a great working relationship and got many good solid people elected. When he stepped down his replacement is as much of an ass as the guy that ran the party before.
Have a good heart felt conversation, be honest as to what your plans are. You would be surprised as to how many will join you if you really are a reform minded guy with no marriage to just “Party principal”...
Just my opinion.
Freedom. Marriage. Faith.
Work with that.
