Skip to comments.WE ARE FREE REPUBLIC and WE DO NOT BACK DOWN!
Posted on 01/12/2010 3:19:01 PM PST by MestaMachine
The earlier,(now locked,) thread, located here, according to some, was a bit long and too complicated to follow. This is the main thrust of Part II of The Free Republic Rino Free America Project.
Though the earlier thread is closed for replies, it can be read if you are curious. In the meantime, we start over. We start leaner and meaner, and we are Free Republic. We don't give up. We don't give in. And we do NOT back down.
Do we want action? Yes, we do!!!
Are we willing to take a giant step forward and create a central action site that allows us to see at a glance every single states candidates for national office, House and Senate, to separate the wheat from the chaff? That is our hope. We want to spend our money, our time, and our votes wisely. Our time is JUST as valuable as the money we spend.
The goal is to take back and take over the GOP, or move it out of the way, and elect conservatives to every office we can affect whether the RNC likes it or not.
To do this, we need a clearinghouse and a plan of action that encompasses all 50 states in ONE place. That place is Free Republic. THIS is where we nationalize the 2010 election cycle and choose where our money and our time is spent. The genius of Free Republic is that it already has the 50 state message boards. We dont have to google our way through hundreds of candidates in individual states to find out who is who doing what. Its already here, just not out in the public eye. This will change that.
I, and others, have repeatedly asked Freepers to present workable ideas with this goal in mind, and there have been many, but the two I am going to post here are comprehensive, have been well thought out over a long period of time, and the magic of it is that it has never been tried before...and THAT is precisely why it will work.
Freeper blueyon, (the originator of RINO FREE AMERICA PROJECT on FaceBook,) and I have worked on the idea to have each state message board create individual STATE BY STATE threads on the forum which presents information ONLY about their national congressional candidates.
We need their candidates names, pictures, platforms, voting records, (if applicable,) backgrounds, opinions, newslinks, statements, and whatever other information might be available including links to candidates websites if they exist.
The state message boards are full of much of this information and no one knows local politics like the locals. Its time to make local politics national, and here is where we do it. Fifty states, fifty threads, ALL politics will be Free Republic Local politics.
Freepers have the best researchers in the business. We need that right here, right now if we are going to burn down the RINO tent and do it effectively. They will NOT be allowed to silence us again.
Those threads will be information only. Conservative candidates will be flagged and RINOs will be tagged. Anyone who wishes to debate or discuss individual candidates can start a separate thread for that here, AND/OR on the RINO FREE discussion board on FaceBook as well.
I expect these threads to become lengthy, so be sure to add the state and candidate's name as keywords.
Once we have singled out the candidates we choose to support we will gather THOSE candidates on to ONE thread. It is our intent to coordinate all of these efforts with the National Tea Party Movement and have them link to our information as well as share whatever info they might have that we dont...although I find that next to impossible knowing Freepers. There just might be tidbits of inside information we might not have access to, so contributions from outside Freeperdom will be researched by us FOR us and we will do well not to post rumor or inuendo if we have no proof.
The Action Plan as presented on the earlier thread, is undergoing revision at this time and will be reposted ASAP.
Let's do it!
Woo hoo!! Print it, baby!!
Not going Galt, going Sarah!!
What we are asking for are volunteers from each state message board to start the Congressional State threads since you are the ones who know what is going on locally to you. That is the beauty of FR. Each state has members listed by state and someone needs to manage all the threads. Since so many are already discussing these things, it shouldn't be difficult to get a few people to step up. I spent the better part of a year on the PA message board and was amazed at the level of savvy political discourse taking place there.
The introduction is just that, and introduction to the project and a request to the state boards to get involved. FR has excellent "diggers" so that should not be a problem either. The whole premise is an outreach program so I expect many new signups from the TPs as well since this will be the most comprehensive clearinghouse of candidates anywhere on the web.
This is an eminently possible project and can work, but I am saying to you all, once we spell it out, we can't be chasing you guys with a stick. You have to do this on your own.
The Patriot Presence, (Tea Party Affiliates, etc.) can also be added to the main thread via links and the specifics can be distributed by the state threads.
What we are aiming for is to use the main thread as a step by step guide to what has to be done, then turn YOU Freepers loose to do it. Trying to micromanage every detail is a job for Hercules and I ain't him.
It is not our intent to micromanage this. In my experience Freepers don't appreciate being treated like children. Point you guys in the right direction and I know you will come thru.
There is already enough detail. I expect there will be ideas from you as well, and YOU know YOUR states.
Let's DO it!
Was just about to leave to start dinner and saw this. Bookmarked and will read later.
Thanks you, MestaMachine!! Lead on!
And here I thought it was just a flame-war with a few individuals...
FWIIW, I am Sarah all the way. Her positives outweigh her negatives (most of which are perception and not reality).
Based on what she has said and done on her book tour and how she has blogged/twittered, I think she politically matured quickly and take it all.
I ask God above to not make it so I have to hold my nose again (and puke afterward) in 2012 like I did last year,
Bring it and let me see this plan you speak of.
Slam dunk, back in business!
That it was, among other things. But it doesn’t stop the Project. Onward and upward.
RINO Charlie Crist vs. Conservative Marco Rubio
RINO John McCain vs. Conservative JD Hayworth
We were never out of business. We just needed to change the locks.
Boy that was quick, just e-mailed you! Ha!
Not surprised...America Rises...here once more!
POWER TO THE PEOPLE !!!
THANK YOU MESTA...great work and wonderful movement and info.
Falcon28 I will pull your info over to the facebook site tonight...THANKS!!!
Locks, trap door over alligator pit, that sort of thing.
New York, we need to work on the state and federal levels.
New York has a triple tax on everything, gotta pay for the mob, the unions, and Sheldon Silver you know.
How to do this, well, people more politically savvy than I will need to hammer out the details on that.
But what the bottom line is: in New York we need to shred the state assembly and our Congress mutants.
THAT is the spirit of a true FReeper MestaMachine! SarahPowered!
Thank you for this. I expect that even here in Maryland there will be a shift in the political arena.
