Urgent Notice For Delegates Alternates And Future/Current Precinct Committeemen!Submitted by Muffin on Mon, 05/14/2012 - 19:29
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE WE DID HERE IN AZ!
Because of the outspoken nature of our supporters (delegates, alternates, and guests) we have lost ground and some of our GOP support.
DO NOT HECKLE, BOO, CHANT, OR OTHERWISE YELL OR DISRUPT THE CONVENTION OR CAUCUSES OF YOUR STATES, COUNTIES, OR DISTRICTS!
It turns people away that would have otherwise voted or supported RP people. It also degrades our message and credibility. We are already fighting an uphill battle and don't need to be making the hill any steeper for ourselves.
ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOUR DELEGATES, ALTERNATES, and GUESTS to remain respectful and if you can, appoint a team to make motions (at least one in each district). That way you don't have the confusion of 100 people yelling at once. Also try to get a parliamentarian and TRAIN YOUR PEOPLE. We sort of went in blind, but ABOVE ALL BE RESPECTFUL AND SILENT. You won't alienate anyone, you won't give the establishment any ammo, and it will be easier to organize and hear floor motions.
GET YOUR PEOPLE TO BECOME Precinct Committeemen!
