Conservatives can’t even organize enough to oppose a sidewalk ordinance at a local village council meeting.
Look how well they got together to vote for a conservative in the primaries.
Conservatives don’t understand organization or leadership.
The Founders organized Committees of Safety to fight the British Crown. That concept completely flies over the heads of conservatives.
I bang my head against the wall when I suggest to conservatives that they get involved in local politics. Elect a constitutional sheriff, volunteer for the county land planning committees. It’s all a big DUH!! to conservatives.
The Founders left a blueprint to fight tyranny. Either clean out your local neighborhoods or get squashed.

Left, right, center rank and file Americans are comfortable with extensive and expansive government at local levels. The development I live in has been in a major fight for three years over weather to dedicate the streets to the parish (county). There will be no real benefits as the development has to bring the streets up to code for the parish to take them but the parish will then put them at the end of the maintenance schedule and it will be 15 + years before a major redo will occur. I keep saying that keeping the parish government out of neighborhood and the sheriff's department NOT doing routine patrols is desirable. Only a few agree others can't fathom my approach. The big fight is over trying to avoid having to spend money. Everyone wants some mechanism whereby the streets will be kept up to code and NOBODY PAYS A DIME. That is the beginning and end of the incredible venom in this dispute. Anger at having to pay for taking care of ones own neighborhood. The entitlement mentality has penetrated so deeply it makes me despair for the nation and the opportunity to see just how petty narrow and selfish the overwhelmingly ‘conservative’ population of this development is tells me that the cause of real constitutional government is probably lost before any fight starts. I have no answer other than young people should move to perhaps Idaho or Montana where there seems to be some chance to actually control government.
