We saw it at the King County (WA) GOP Organization Meeting

Last Saturday (Dec 8).

All the liberty candidates lost but many races were very split.

The GOP does tricks like stacking "GOP friendly" districts closr to the stage where the chairman will hear their votes the loudest.

Then they put the more liberty-minded (less-GOP establishment) districts in the back (and split them up) so their votes sound less strong.

We had to call for "Division" over and over because the voting was so close AFTER the chairman of the meeting sould rull in favor of the establishment districts.

That civil war is already in play in the grassroots.

Possibly.

It may or may not be infiltraitors. It could also be some who are innocently naive.

1. I will not vote based upon popularity contests.

2. I will not make excuses why a politician votes a certain way. He/she either votes Liberty, Freedom, the Constitution, or he/she does not. Lowering of standards is what got this nation into the screwed up mess that it is in.

3. I will take all voting records and determine who stands by principle, Liberty, Freedom.

4. I will cast my vote accordingly. If not on the ballot, I will stand by my own principle and will write-in, just as I did for Ron Paul.

This movement continues to grow. Ron Paul will be on speaking tour. This is not overnight, but rather promoting Liberty by speaking and living it, and working local/state in order to effect future outcomes.

"Civil war" is accurate

A few weeks ago, I tried to explain to someone the difference between a civil war and a regular war. Specifically, we were talking about the war between the northern states and the southern states that seceded. I explained that in a civil war, at least 2 factions are trying to take over the same government: the southern states didn't want to overthrow the federal government, only separate themselves from it.

In today's political world, I see a new analogy: a political "secession" would be forming a new party, such as the Constitution Party, or even backing out of voting altogether. Since the Liberty Party and the Tea Party are trying to overthrow the corruption in the Establishment, a "civil war" in the party is genuine.

Keep up the good fight!
