Republican Protest at the RNC Annual Winter Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina


We intend to call attention to the deplorable actions taken by the RNC against grassroots conservatives at the 2012 National Republican Convention. This protest will be focused on party rule changes and systematic disenfranchisement of delegates that were overseen and railroaded through by party leadership in a premeditated undemocratic fashion. Due to these events, we find Reince Priebus unfit for party leadership. His actions are unbecoming of Republican tradition, damaging to the principles of conservatism, antithetical to American values, and morally reprehensible.

These actions effect every Republican of every political stripe, old school conservatives, the tea party, libertarians, social conservatives, etc. For more information on our grievances see the following links:






From CNN: "Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, announced Tuesday the party will holds its annual winter meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. At the RNC meeting in January, the group will vote on the chairmanship position. Priebus has told members he intends to run for another term, and sources say he will likely win re-election despite the party's losses this cycle."

The RNC Winter Meeting will run from Wednesday, January 23rd to the Saturday, January 26th at the Westin Hotel in uptown Charlotte, NC. Date of the protest is TBA contingent upon when the election of the chairman will take place.

Business attire will be asked of all participants.

We are also collecting donations for a hostpitality suite at the Westin hotel in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina for all grassroots conservatives protesting the RNC rule changes and the re-election of Reince Priebus at the Annual RNC Winter Meeting. All funds will go directly to pay for the cost of the hospitality suite, food and drinks, supplies, event permits, and promotional materials. Any unused funds will be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project in support of our troops. To donate please go here:

Guess what?

They've already made their pivot away from any hopes of blended Ron Paul Republican positions into the GOP. The Hispanic vote is the new hotness. In other words, protest all you want...they don't care.

Can anyone go?

I live in Charlotte, is any regular registered republican allowed to vote out Priebus, or how does that work? I would like to be more involved on this level where things can actually be changed. I work a regular 8-5 job, but I can be there Saturday. Please let me know.

So, we get Priebus out

Yeah! Can't STAND him. He's wrong through and through. When I met him, he gave me a very uneasy feeling. He'd just given us all this hypocritical speech (with his little boy standing right there next to him) about how crucial the grassroots is. Can you believe he had the audacity to say that after TAMPA? I guess as long as the "grassroots" was going to help Romney, then he likes the grassroots.

Who are we hoping takes his place?

Good Question

I wish some liberty person would step up and run. It would take a lot of money, and a lot of political influence.

I know someone who could

I know someone who could win... Morton Blackwell

Q. Who backed the GOP throwing 2 elections?

Who got paid? What are the outernationalists up to? How will the poor little defense contractors survive? When the GOP give in to tax increases will anyone notice?

I don't know

Do you have any sources of what you are talking about?

What sources?

It's common knowledge, isn't it?

We should all be there.


If you take into consideration that purpose of that job is

to raise funds for the GOP, the POS neocons will see dollar signs, instead of seeing human beings. A huge turnout, with appropriate signage (like "No more donations, until the GOP does the right thing!") just might send the only message they understand. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

I would not miss this for the world

I have been waiting to get Priebus back for what he did to us at the RNC.

See you there!

See you there!

NC resident?

Do you live in NC?

If Anyone is Going...

Will you please ask Priebus why he blatantly cheated RP at the convention? Also ask why no speakers were allowed to say his name. Then ask why the leader of the Louisiana state Republican Party was promoted to a national party leadership role after blatantly cheating including:
*Illegal convention rule changes the night before the convention
*Failure to recognize the duly-elected convention leaders
*Use of police to physically assault duly-elected leaders
...amongst other things.

Ask why a party that claims to value ground-up political action would pass rules to shut out the grassroots.

Ask why none of the county or state leaders were removed for cheating that has been videotaped and widely-publicized on YouTube.

Ask him to explain how cheating the grassroots will grow the grassroots.

Ya, and while you are asking,

Ya, and while you are asking, ask him if he knows how many businesses were virtually shut down when the security fences allowed them no customers during the Tampa RNC, He is SOOOO concerned with Mom and Pop businesses and Grassroots, why, he should have that number on the tip of his brain....

Great questions

Thanks. If I get the chance to ask him these, I will.

Ron Paul for RNC Chair

Don't protest. Ron Paul for RNC Chair rally instead.

If you want a GOP that practices honest process' in 2014 and 2016, I can think of no one more honest and qualified than Dr Paul.



Wouldn't that be poetic justice...


Fancy Shmancy Fine Print:

RNC Chair position

The chair position is basically a fundraising position. Steele got booted from it not because of what he was saying, but because he wasn't raising enough money.

I wish! Unfortunately the RNC

I wish! Unfortunately the RNC executive committee elects the Chairman so I don't see it ever happening.

That is the point of a rally

That is the point of a rally - to persuade the committee to your wants. There are 2 types of demonstrations. Rally (in favor) and/or protest (in opposition).

If what you're saying is a demonstration of support will fall on deaf ears with the committee, why should you expect a demonstration of protest to be heard? If they don't care about what you want, they sure as hell don't give a dam about what you don't want.


Fancy Shmancy Fine Print:

That would be great

I don't know if he wants to run for that position, but if he did, that would be epic.

He doesn't

Ron Paul said on an interview that he's really going to stay out of party politics now, only enough to endorse liberty candidates, but not much more than that. He'll be too busy "setting bushfires of freedom in the minds of men..."

What's amazing is that they are wondering why they lost....

Was it more important to the Republicans to prevent a liberty candidate to ever get the nomination than it was to win this last election?

I don't see it like that

If there ws anything amazing it was how desperately they fought to lose.


Clearly it was. The RNC needs to be cleansed of the leaders like Priebus.


I was in Tampa to witnes the powergrab with my own eyes. This is our chance to show up in outstanding numbers to make the point that we will not put up with their cheating. Priebus is a disgrace to the Republican Party and must be outsted because of the damage he has done to the party. Whoever thought of the idea to go to Charlotte is brilliant. Could we do another rally like the one we had in Tampa in the dome?


There are a lot liberty people in NC ready to make this a huge event.


Shut the whole thing down!

It is time!

The RNC needs to know that the grassroots is revolting. Lets make this happen!

Rinse Priebus down the drain.

The party remains a joke with him in the pilot seat. The culling time is upon us.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
