They won’t listen. They don’t care. They don’t have to; we’ve seen to that!

BUT...I’m starting locally, and I advise anyone that listens to do the same. I’m working on local campaigns right now. We’re going to get a new County Executive, get all the smelly hippies OFF of our County Board, and we’re going to get rid of our very own ‘Ruth Bader Ginsburg’ judge (Shirley Abrahamson) if I have anything to say about it come April 7th.

The current ‘Poser in Chief’ that we’ve got? Why, just a few short years ago, he was merely a Community Organizer!

A more effective approach will be slow and steady to win the race for years to come.

Start locally, and move those people up nationally as they earn it. Concentrate on grooming our GOVERNORS for higher office; we have some very, very good ones in place right now.

It completely AMAZES me that the simple things I learned in the Army through the years about Command and Control and Promotions and LEADERSHIP completely escape the GOP we have these days. But, they escape most people I deal with day in and day out. *SHRUG*

Michael Steele? *SPIT* Let’s get real.

This Nation was founded by people no more important or smart or wealthy than we are. Let’s get back to basics.

Well, I can dream, can’t I? ;)

Been working on local campaigns since 1988. That's where it all starts and if you try to skip over for the highest levels only -- you lose.

I remember when Senator Patty Murray was making her first run beyond (school board)? The local Republican party was not great shakes then, and look at the result...

That is the right way to do it, but expect resistance within the party the whole way. The GOP has been anti-conservative for most of its life, as history shows. Even Ronald Reagan was essentially an outsider who fortunately had the great state of California behind him.

IF the GOP were serious about regaining majority status they would be following the example of Howard Dean and his 50-state strategy. Pour money and resources into every state and concede nothing. The incumbents will fight against it just as the 'rat incumbents did, but so what. We've had enough of the republican party mugwumps.

You can dream and it looks to they you are doing the footwork as well. Good for you. It also sounds like you have it right how to go forward and change things from the 'bottom' up. To me that is sustained, long term, and fundamental change. Your knowledge and experience from your Army days is wise experience. :-)

Good for you and thank you for your commitment and work.
