We Are NOT Winning.Submitted by snakepit22 on Sun, 03/17/2013 - 01:38
Reality check, our movement is huge, and I mean HUGE.....on facebook.
However, I went to my local county Republican committee meeting today, and all I saw was the same old, old-guard Republicans there.
I am a Ron Paul Republican, and with any luck, I'll have a great candidate to support in 2016 for president, and other great candidates for local and national offices in 2014. However, if I continue to be the minority in my county, and if liberty loving people continue to be content winning battles on facebook, youtube, and other marginal formats, rather than becoming fully, and I mean FULLY engaged in the party, then we aren't going to win anything.
If you don't know how party politics work, you need to start asking those people who are involved. If you think winning debates on facebook is helping our cause, well....you are right, it is, but just not that much. We need to control our local Republican committees.
If you don't think that our best chance for liberty is moving through the Republican party, then ignore everything I've said.
If you agree that our best shot is through the GOP, then let me repeat myself just once more: We need to control our local Republican committees. The only way that happens is for us all to be involved, to become PC's, to attend the meetings, to get elected to local positions, etc.
We have to do it and we have to do it now, because as it stands, we are not winning.
