Skip to comments.Taking the Republican Party
Posted on 10/04/2009 4:01:24 PM PDT by Doug Loss
We've all seen calls for a third party (which would be disastrous I think, given the lack of success third parties have had since 1860) and countering calls for taking control of the Republican Party. But what has been distinctly missing is any idea of how to do either of these things.
I'm not going to bother about how to form a third party, as I think it would be at best a waste of time. Instead, I'm going to present an idea and a website that gives concrete instructions on how to start to take control of the Republican Party. Oh, they don't say "Republican Party," but you know that they don't mean the National Socialists (excuse me, the Democrats).
Wag The Dog 2010 begins to lay out the precinct concept of seizing the party from the bottom up. It differs from state to state, but usually all you need is 5-10 signatures from party members within your voting precinct to get on the primary ballot as a candidate for precinct official for your party. Once you become that official, you get to vote (generally, I'm sure it varies a bit from place to place) for the county party officials about a month later. Those county party officials in turn determine the state officials, etc.
The secret is, many precinct positions are vacant because no one is interested in getting on the ballot, and many others go to the same old folks every time for the same reason. If you're associated with a local tea party organization or anything like that, you can look into getting your people into precinct official positions and take over your county party organization.
Folks, this is what it will take to make the changes we all want to make. Go look at this website, join up if you're of a mind to, but take the ideas seriously and let's start working on actually making a change, not just talking about it!
sory old lindsey graham says he is representative of conservative republicans hahahha
Levin’s Conservative Manifesto in his “Liberty & Tyranny” is another a good reference.
Tinky Winky Lindsay and Mad Juan can go join the Rat Part...err, I mean, go to hell.
Why not be open and list your connection to Ron Paul?
John Condit Jr, prominently shown and mentioned on hte site, seems to be a big Ron Paul supporter.
Why not just openly say you are Ron Paul followers and with the other Ron Paul groups, have decided to sabotage others to seize control of the party and finish it off?
The Liberatrian Party message has never fully caught on. Hanging an “R” behind it won’t change much.
No vote, and no sale.
Because my friend, I’m not a Paulista and never have been. You want to disparage the message because you don’t like the messenger. If you want to take control of the Republican Party, this is the way to do it. Whether you like who came up with the idea or not, it’s still a good idea.
Exactly Rab! Nice job! LOL!
Yeah, I know, f- the Constitution, f- limited government, f- personal liberty, f- individualism. Let's all get behind the Big Government RINO bandwagon and call it "conservatism" like we did under the leftist Bush. /sarc
Hate to tell you, but I am already a PCO, as we list ourselves here and have a seat on the County Party Executive Board.
Are you denying the connection between Condit and Paul?
I see what the Paulista’s are doing here and how crafty they are in doing exactly what you mention.
I see how the Liberty Caucus sets up right next to Republican booths here and furthers their agenda, not the party’s.
So please explain, since you are not a Paulista, why feature an interview with a strong Paulista on your website?
I've always thought of them as Rondementalists.
And abandon a strong defense of America and wait until they are running through our streets.
Heard it all before.
You’re not very clear...are you for or against trying to take over the Republican Party?
If the GOP doesn't offer me something I like, they don't get me as a supporter. It's dead simple.
The ‘Rat parasite infection runs deep in the GOP. I highly doubt you can save the patient. The patient embraces the parasites.
First, it’s not my website. Second, I purely don’t care if Condit is for Paul or not. The idea is still a good one. If you’re already a PCO, then you know how it works. Are you trying to recruit people of like mind to become PCOs in their own precincts? That’s how to take the Republican Party from the RINOs. If you leave it to the Paulistas and they succeed in taking it, you only have yourself to blame. And if you think the Paulistas are crafty and nefarious, why aren’t you interested in using their ideas to oppose them? You aren’t making logical sense.
Maybe it is time to brake the 2 party. So far the dems and pubs have screwed our Country up big Time!!!!!!
