Oak Roots Club Run By Robert's Rules of Order - Exciting Developments - Future Could Be Bright For Liberty

Fourth Meeting of the Oak Roots Club is scheduled for Friday 4/5 @ 8PM CST. It will be held in the "Oak Roots Club" chat on the Daily Paul (the chat room will be visible during the meeting time). If you're interested in getting organized you should attend to see how we're getting things done.

Our third meeting went very well and we passed a few rules to ensure future meetings would go even smoother. A few people have inquire about WHAT Oak Roots is. Without attending a meeting the best I can tell you is this:

Oak Roots Club is a organized group of liberty activists who want to organize via Robert's Rules of order to determine the best courses of action for the liberty movement. Getting organized has been the hardest part all along in this fight... it's time we take it to the next level.

Oak Roots Club is run via Robert's Rules of Order so many of you who worked in the delegate process should be quite familiar :)

We have also started a "basecamp" at http://www.basecamp.com/ - This is some very cool online collaboration software that was awesome 4 years ago, it's 4 years more awesome now. If anyone would like access send me a PM and I'll get you started. Between Robert's Rules and Basecamp I can't see how any liberty organization could be hindered in their goals.

So are you ready to get things done? Great then bump for action! See you at the meeting.

I'm certainly going to try

I'm certainly going to try and show up. 8PM CST tonight, for those who don't know.

Opened up a basecamp :)


You'll have to sign up to log in but this is VERY awesome.

Strategy of

Amending the rules to allow for cameras to record all the meetings in county GOP meetings and on up. If laws or rules are broken then the evidence can be used against the usurpers much for effectively, especially if it is the chair breaking those rules.

Well pk

if we follow Robert's rules - I think the group succeeds. If we become the old guard GOP types - then it will fail (or succeed?) think about it:

It's likely the OLD GUARD GOP really enjoyed having all that power all to themselves every two/four years? Then all these people who wanted power too showed up and actually knew the rules - and called them on their own rules.

Robert's rules. So we're arguing in the chat one day... and we decide to start another chat an run it by Robert's Rules. Stunning success! We don't know where we're going with this but we're sure we're going there real fast... participation is strong - ideas are voted on - rules passed - we all agree to be peaceful but EFFECTIVE.

Bill3 Kicked Out of Club Again...

Will need two members to get him back in.

3/24 Meeting Bump (11:00AM EST)

Looking for a secretary to keep the minutes (until then I'll keep on doing it). Should be voting on quorum requirements and main rules today. If you wish to propose new core rules you MUST attend today!

Pushed the meeting forward two hours because some on the West Coast were complaining that 6AM is a little early :)


For the sake of taking action! Talk is cheap.

Thanks all for your participation.

We got a lot accomplished. Have a great day.
