We’re going to have to get a WHOLE helluva lot better at it between now and November 2012, if we want to win.
A lot of folks on FR like to bitch that someone isn’t conservative enough, is a RINO, etc, and I think, “What was the last County or local Republican event you attended?”
THAT is where you change things, by getting involved, and supporting Conservatives in the local and Primary process.
Frankly, the whackadoodles of the nutjob left are light years ahead of us in Organizing, and it’s in large part responsible for where we are today.
You’ll NEVER change anything by standing outside and whining. Get in, GET INVOLVED. You don’t have to be a card-carrying Party member to participate in most things.
The whole premise was this: 14 fleebag dems fled the state, bought and paid for by union thugs and Obama’s pols. Not rumor - true. Those 14, not just the 2 today, should have been recalled for NOT performing as a state senator. But instead, the lefty slimes were successful for recalling 6 GOP, in last weeks race. Thank God we kept the power. The 14 should have lost their seats. Not 2 GOP.
Put this in your lessons learned file. We did darn good, keeping what we did. You are right - we need to shape up, pay MORE attention. The left likes to wear you down. They are at this “game” 150% of the time. The rest of us work, have families, etc.
Keep the faith folks - we held our own, we showed the USA what Wisconsin was made of. The GOP is still in power and this is just the beginning of our awakening. Stay the course. Don’t give up, don’t give in.
