My First GOP State ConventionSubmitted by meekandmild on Sat, 05/31/2008 - 20:05
My Opinion on my first GOP state convention
I attended my first GOP state convention today, and it left me utterly despaired. As I followed other primaries and state conventions, online, I hear the horror stories of the activities at these political events. I can see why our country is in such bad shape. I got to witness firsthand the lack of integrity. Not once did I hear what was “good for the people or the party.” It seemed to me that it was a big game to the politicians, just to see who can get the upper hand for their own personal gain.
The event was started out with a prayer; I guess the politicians think they will ask God’s forgiveness, before they start with their scams, lies, and corruption. You hear that politics is dirty business; now I have seen it with my own eyes. I see why lots of people don’t take part in our political system, you walk out after the convention and want to take a shower and wash the filth from you.
The State GOP had a Harley Motorcycle club acting as security/pages. Looking like the TV gangs. For intimidation, I presume.
Delegates were searched to keep out recording or videos in the convention room. The chairs were set so close together most people were sitting so that you were in contact with the person next to you, maybe this was done to thin the number of delegates.
I wonder how some of those with political power and play the political game are able to sleep; I wonder how they can face the people they are suppose to represent, telling them one thing and doing another.
We need to do something to hold these politicians responsible to the law of the land and to the people. Today we, the Ron Paul Revolution, lost a battle, but the war is just beginning, the Revolution is just not about one man, one office; The revolution needs to take our political system by storm, to get some honest, trustworthy people in all levels of Government.
I had thought about getting out of the politics, but now I think that I need to stay. My one voice could make a difference, especially when combined with other voices; as in our Revolution. Not only do we need to bring back our party to its original intent, we must bring back some integrity back to the party and the government.
“We the people”, the Revolution needs to start running for locals offices, committee persons, get involved with the system, expertise and experience is 2nd, The first objective is integrity and trustworthiness. I’d rather have Forrest Gump in office that some of the undependable people that are in and are being elected to offices
