What to do if local convention rules are violated, Chairman, Police...Submitted by theancientalien on Fri, 03/30/2012 - 09:38
First...video, video, video.
Second- If the Chair says there will be no video recording, IMMEDIATELY stand and say loudly Mr./ Madame Chairman, Point of Order, say that rule has not been voted on, and commence with whatever motion to the subject you wish...replace the Chair, allow video, etc. Someone must second you, then it goes to vote. DO NOT LET THEM DEVIATE FROM THE RULES.
If you are in a public area, do NOT let the police arrest anyone until doing this first- Tell the police officers they are breaking the law and to not arrest whatever individual, tell the suspected individual to tell the police he/she is doing nothing wrong, has a right to be there, and will not cooperate with illegal orders given by police. Have your cell phone in hand and be prepared to call the Sheriff, State Republican Party, and ACLU.
People...remember the Ps. Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. Study the Rules of Order, remain calm but firm, stand your ground and do not give an inch without making them earn it. Outlast them, outsmart them, win.
