Now Is Our Time. Become The Republican Party!Submitted by Tio Rio on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 09:57
Romney's loss is our time to shine! Your local county GOP meetings are likely going to have low turnout over the next few months and those that do show up are going to have questions and looking for answers, and it's up to us to gently educate them show them a path to victory! However, simply being registered Republican is not enough to change the GOP into a party that reflects our visions and philosophies. To change it and win we have to be engaged and become the Republican Party.
To do this we have to get involved in our county and state GOP. If you're not already, google your state GOP - like this if you're in Florida - http://rpof.org/contact-us/find-your-local-rec/ - and find out when and where your county meetings are held, and then go! It's very easy to become a PCO here in Florida and I'm sure the equivalent in your state is easy to make happen too. When you become a PCO you have voting rights on who your county GOP office holders are, and if you bring enough of your friends to these meetings and they bring enough of their friends, (it doesn't take a lot, it's amazing how few people are involved and how easy this can be) your county will be run by you and your friends when 2014 rolls around, and then we work to make the state leadership ours from there hopefully before 2016, and when we take the state parties, we take the RNC from there. We can do this, it just takes getting involved and going to a meeting once a month or so, sometimes they are even interesting and not punishment! Imagine how much better they will be when we are running the show and setting the agenda and deciding which speakers we want to invite to speak at the monthly meeting! Imagine Tom Woods, Tisha Casida, Josh Tolley, Mary Ruwart and Ben Swann on county GOP meeting tours!
The Republican Liberty Caucus http://www.rlc.org/ is a great way to network with people in your area too and help each other run your local county GOP. I had great fun at the RLC events I've been to and look forward to more. I also suggest getting to know people in your local Libertarian Party, it doesn't hurt to go to their meetings too if they exist...let them know you're making inroads in your county GOP and you need their help!
With us running the show, liberty candidates in 2014 and 2016 will not only not have the problems Ron Paul and others have had, they will have us in very strong positions to support them from. We can do this! Viva la revolution Ron Paul RepubliCANS!
All that said - It's OK if you don't feel comfortable working within the GOP, I still love you! I just think this is the most effective way for the revolution to move forward and grow, but your path and all paths are OK in my book!
