Grassroots Continue Rules Fight at RNC Spring Meeting

"Grassroots conservatives from around the nation have traveled to Los Angeles for the Republican National Committee spring meeting.

A rules fight going back to the convention floor in Tampa, FL continues to rage on as many in a large minority are frustrated at the power grab and centralization effort going on within the GOP. Ben Ginsberg of the Mitt Romney campaign lead a rather successful effort in Tampa to instate rules that centralize the power of the party into the hands of an elect few and the presumed nominee. There was initial outcry as the Ginsberg team had got “too far” allowing nominees to veto and replace delegates for just about any reason they found. However, a compromise was found and the new committee rules modified just enough to pacify the opposition and still put the thumb heavily on the grassroots.

Good news

It's good to hear that people are fighting this battle.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine

This is a big deal

How come there's no serious effort at a new party? We need multiple fronts. A new party could form new coalitions with liberty people fighting in the gop.

Another new party?

I think there's already plenty to choose from... If one of them would follow the example of what has been successful in the past and in the present(UKIP)and rebrand as a single issue party rather than trying to introduce an entirely new philosophy - they just might start winning...or wait till 2016 and freeandequal.org's game changing debate plan to take what they did last year to another level!

But I don't think we need another new 3rd party....
