Got up at 3AM... drove 4 hours to State Republican annual meeting....

Hoping for some CHANGE. After all, we had 2 liberty loving individuals running for State Chair, one of which was Florida's Ron Paul State Meetup organizer and current Campaign 4 Liberty Florida State organizer, Mark Cross who pleaded for the big tent to accept the Ron Paul wing of the Republican party. Sadly, he withdrew his bid during his campaign speech & threw his support not behind the other liberty lover, Eric Miller, but for the Governor & his choice.... Jim Greer.

We got change all right, the wratchet tightened & the liberty lovers within the party have been warned....

Greer: "Some have called me a strong chairman and some have called me other names which I will not mention. But I have little time for...But I can tell you I have little time for people who wish to divide our party, wish to criticize our party leaders and wish to promote non-unity within the Republican party. But I have all the time in the world to anyone that has constructive ideas, who brings more ideas to the table...We will not tolerate anyone who wishes to tear (our party) down."

Good efforts ...

but, I think as a whole we have spent far too much time fighting with the Republicans. We need to think more strategically. More Art of War tactics. From Sun Tsu:

"To win without fighting is best."

You might be right!

I don't have the stomach for fighting, nor do I seem to have what it takes to fight them in the manner they fight. That's a good thing in my opinion.

Was wondering how many are biting their tongue and climbing the power ladder until they think they are in a place to be effective.

I was doing that to make it to the state committee level, but I'm thinking you never get to a place to have the power to change anything that corrupt and stacked in a positive way.

thank you for your good work; we can't win every battle,

no matter how well fought. Let's keep sharing experiences, strategies, and keep our sights on winning in the long term.

Thanks, for sharing

I guess no one said this was going to be easy. Ugh! I hate fighting.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

ya dont divide the party,

ya dont divide the party, ignore conservative ideas and go with where they want.........not

No change is available to us throughthe political process

We took our county, placed our chair, vice chair, state committeman and woman, made the shrewd move to name our sheriff youth committeeman, had an easy majority of PCPs. Meeting one, great. By meeting two, one of "us" showed true colors and sided with the NeoCon, and somehow, our Chairman suddenly began to care more about unity and holding power than accountability and liberty...
Individual sovereignty is where liberty lies. Getting everyone ready to "sac up" for the responsibility it entails is the tricky part.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Did you guys have the dark suits w/ear things talking into their

...sleeves, those kids were eating up the authority that comes within the rank & file. It's pitiful.

I felt like I was back in Minneapolis, I actually glanced up on the roof to see if there was military snipers up there. My husband was followed out to the car when he simply went to go get the camera he forgot to bring in.

AND.... it was held in a very upscale resort which cost $8.00 minimum for self parking! Conservatives my a$$.

You guys need to better organize

It should be seriously easy to find people who hate republicans and/or that McCain was a weenie.

Just instruct those people who and what to support beforehand.

Those people as you call them....

Are the TOP down, authorative & controlling leaders. They INSTRUCTED 77% of the party who to vote for and sent a warning, anything other than status quo will not be tolerated.
