TN-GOP calls us "nutjobs" !!!

Yeah that's right....

A high-ranking member of the TN Republican Party has called us Ron Paul supporters "nutjobs".

In an e-mail that I had received recently, TNGOP Chief of Staff and executive committee member Mark Winslow allegedly wrote the following:

"I'm not going to be put in a position of having these nut jobs elect a (Davidson County GOP) chairman who will question or announce they will not support the Republican candidate for Governor or nominees for the House and Senate the way he does with his McCain comments*. We have too many strong opportunities next year [to blow it]"[/quote]If you disagree with Mr. Winslow's statements you can contact him here and let him know what you think:

Mr. Mark Winslow

Phone: (615) 360-5183
E-mail: winslowtngop19@aol.com
(this information was posted on the State website publicly)

During the Nashville / Davidson County Caucus last Saturday he told a fellow Ron Paul Republican:

"These [Ron Paul] guys are going to be brutally disappointed in their candidates for governor "

* In a blog last year I stated that I would not personally vote for a big government liberal even if they were a Republican (obviously referring to Senator McCain). Apparently Mr. Winslow and the TNGOP expects all Republicans to support the R candidates even if they are big-government, liberty oppressing, liberals.

So allow me to briefly explain the situation and back story...

Last Saturday many Ron Paul Republicans who live in Davidson County showed up to the Davidson County / Nashville Republican Party Caucus. This event is where delegates are elected, and then on March 7th those delegates vote in the county Party election which is how the local county GOP officers get elected. Us Ron Paul Republicans DOMINATED the room; in other words we have control over the outcome because we have the most voters. Apparently however it appears the State Republican Party doesn't want Ron Paul Republicans involved. Why are they trying to keep out limited-government conservatives from the Party? Do they not realize that people are tired of big-government Republicans and that is why the Party is losing many elections? Do they not realize that Ron Paul Republicans are passionate, youthful, energetic, and dedicated?

So in addition to calling us names I have been told the State Republican Party is also doing everything they can to scrutinize the delegates and will be attempting to throw out many Ron Paul Republicans' ballots to keep them from becoming active in the Party and exercising a vote in the upcoming officer elections.

Do you want more compromise of limited-government principles? Do you want more big government candidates on the ballot? Do you want more big government Republican platforms? Do you want more big government? It would appear that the TNGOP, or at least Mr. Winslow, indeed does.

The rank and file Republicans are in dire need for people who won't compromise the core values of limited-government conservatism. The TNGOP leadership might fight us, but the country needs individuals who will not sell their positions in exchange for political clout. As mentioned I am sure that this'll be well received with many Republican voters.

I appreciate everyone who came out to the event in Nashville last Saturday, but the fight is not yet over. If you are in Nashville and were voted in as a delegate you should receive another e-mail from me very shortly with further more detailed / specific information.

However if you don't live in Nashville it is imperative that you and your fellow limited-government friends / family / neighbors, go to your local Republican Party's meetings and elections. If you're unhappy with the the direction the Republican Party is heading, then change it. If you're unhappy with the Republican Party leadership, then vote them out. Let's return the Republican Party to it's roots!

The next major Republican vote is in Memphis / Shelby County THIS WEEKEND. If you need the details please e-mail galedale99@yahoo.com

The good ol boy club

has a strangle hold on Tn and they're milking it for all they can. Bribes, kickbacks, and shady deals are a way of life with those guys.
But they're scared, or else he wouldn't be calling us names.

"It's just one big club... and WE ain't in it!"

Party Like It’s 1984

"From where Winston stood it was just possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party:

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing.”

“The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three hundred million people all with the same face."

--- George Orwell

Well to be fair... many of us are "nutjobs"

but that's what makes talking, and working together so much fun. :D

At any rate you should respond thusly:

Winning elections by supporting candidates who do not firmly adhere to the core principle of Republicanism-- the belief in limited government and personal liberty-- is, at best, a Pyrrhic victory.

Perhaps Mike Huckabee said it best during the primary debates.

Even if we lose elections, we should not lose our honor. And that is more important than the Republican Party.
-- Mike Huckabee

Signed, a concerned Ron Paul Republican.

We will always be behind the 8-ball when it comes to the truth,

But i am glad you and by proxy us now know who the enemy is in the TN-GOP . Welcome To the DailyPaul Matt

Tell this dunder head to look around an ask himself how that strategy has been working out for the GOP lately? Then quote him Einstein: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

My email to him...

Dear Mr. Winslow:

I wanted to take just a moment to introduce myself. My name is Bill Kosloskey from Petoskey, Michigan. I’m a conservative. I voted Republican all my life – I’m 49 this year. I love Jesus and am a born-again Christian. I’m married to the same woman for the last 16 years and will be married to her for life. I have six beautiful children – Jonah, Isaac, Aaron, Chloe, Naomi, and Lydia (and one on the way). If you didn’t notice – those are all Biblical names, because the Bible’s important to us. I’m self-employed for the last 10 years, formerly with the U.S. P.S. – I’m a responsible American – my wife is a stay-at-home Mom and the teacher of my children. I believe in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. I’m against big government. One of my favorite quotes, “The government that governs the least governs the best”. I’m pro-life, pro-American, pro-freedom, pro-liberty, pro-state’s rights. I’m adamantly against all these bailouts and spending packages.

I was never political until May 2007, when I got involved to stand up against the hate crimes bill that was being kicked around Congress. It was then I started to discover the truth about what was really going on in our government. I saw my president standing with Ted Kennedy and John McCain attempting to ram amnesty down the throats of us legal Americans. It made me sick. Someone told me about the congressman named Ron Paul right after the first debate. I watched the tapes. Maybe you should go back and watch them too.

Ron Paul cured my apathy and got me fired up to be an American again. He’s the only presidential candidate that had the guts to tell the American people the truth about a lot of things and outline the Rx that would put us back on track. The war in Iraq, the economy, the Federal Reserve, and big government.

I’m a Ron Paul Nut Job Mr. Winslow, and damn proud of it. Your Republican party has nothing left – you stand for nothing significant. How about recognizing the only spirit left in the room – that of the Founders, and kept alive by the Ron Paul remnant.

They've lot's of energy and with a little encourgement, we'll have a statesman.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

welcome aboard!

and get used to it. keep trying and you will get through! refine your arguements untill they are palatable, then you can get through to them.

remember to put this guys name on your list. He hasn't seen what a nutjob is yet. If they destroy this country, they better have a spot reserved in the elite's bunker, because I think they are gonna have some real situations on their hands.
