State of the Republican Party Survey‏

Seems that the RNC is looking for feedback...

Survey: http://web.campaignsolutions.com/rnc/2009survey/default2.asp...

When running to become your new Republican National Committee Chairman, I campaigned on a need for responsible change for our Party.

Not a change of our core values, but real change of how we go about listening to our supporters, how we communicate our message to all Americans and how we organize and win elections.

While I'm excited about the challenges and opportunities we face, I have no illusions. I am fully aware of the hard work ahead and obstacles we must overcome to start winning elections again.

But this isn't about me -- I can't do this alone.

It's about you and every Republican grassroots leader who believes in our conservative principles of limited government, economic growth, personal responsibility and a strong national defense.

And it's about empowering you to lead and giving you the tools to help our Party set a new direction for our country.

Successful campaigns cannot be run from a building in Washington. The strength of our Party comes from people like you who believe in our values and ideals and promote them in their communities.

As one of my first official acts as Chairman, I've commissioned a survey of Republican activists in EVERY state. I want to hear from each of you to understand your thoughts and opinions about our Party and how we can once again be the party of ideas.

That's why I'm asking you to do two very important things for me:

Please take a moment right now to fill out online the State of the Republican Party Survey for the RNC. I want you to be honest and candid in your answers -- there's no need to sugar-coat your responses after our Party's performances in the last two elections.

If you choose not to participate in this crucial project, the RNC cannot create a campaign plan to educate and mobilize the millions of Republicans we need to resist the liberal agenda Barack Obama and the Pelosi-Reid Democrats are attempting to ram through Congress.

Your guidance will also help us develop new strategies for winning the two Governor's races held this year.

The elections in New Jersey and Virginia offer Republicans a chance to demonstrate that we got your message and will help us seize the momentum.

But we cannot lay the groundwork for winning this year and next without your participation in this survey and your active involvement in the RNC.


Michael Steele
Chairman, Republican National Committee

P.S. As the new Chairman I'm eager to hear your views about what our Party must do better to promote our message and win elections. I want our Party's strongest supporters to have a voice in setting our new direction. Please complete your State of the Republican Party Survey online today.

Didn't like those results

War War War. What is wrong with these people? They really like bullying don't they? Do they really think the "terrorist" are everywhere and bombing all these other countries is keeping us safe? Thier ignorance scares me. Do they really think having troops everywhere else will keep terrorist from coming here? I don't get the logic or lack of. That does seem to be the one talking point you just can't have with most republicans. or even americans for that matter. Power trip I guess. many who have family overseas I think can't except that thier loved ones are fighting an unjust war built on lies. They need to realise it doen't make them any less heros. They were just fooled by a lying government and were trying to do the best by serving thier country. They deserve all of our thanks and praise for thier efforts. The ones who sent them under false pretenses are to blame. How were they to know. many were fooled and still don't know the history of how we ended up where we are today in this mess.
At least they got much of the other things right.

So the majority of the right thinks...

That we should start preemptive wars for people that "might" want to cause us harm? And we thought the thought police were patrolling our neighborhoods. In all seriousness it is the propaganda of the media and GOP fear mongering that has pushed the Christian right to this mode of thinking. Attacking countries with bombs killing innocents will protect us in the long run, when the country has done nothing to provoke us? People need to stop and think about what their reaction would be if the roles were reversed. When you take everything from an individual and they have nothing left to loose, you have created a dangerous individual, and all without so much as a shot fired we are to believe that through the corruption of today our leaders should sell us on attacking a nation that has done nothing to us other than to dislike us?

They like these policies now, but isn’t it funny how that Obama has created like policies in Washington towards the right, and they do not like it a bit, I wish they would stop to think “what if Obama was allowed to use bombs against us”. They also forget that the over reaching powers of the patriot act and things of this nature can and will be abused by future administrations, such as may be the case in this present administration, but still they cheer at the aspect of giving a single individual the power of the nation to dictate through these new found unconstitutional laws, I think perhaps many are brain dead or brain washed. Either way this poll shows us what we are up against in the realm of politics.

It really is telling when you see how fast they forget the TARP bailout and like rats follow the right wing talk radio off the cliff as if the pied piper were leading the way. Ignorance and low educational standards are to blame for this, there is no other reasoning that people can be so ignorant of what is happening around them. This is perhaps the greatest show of apathy in human history, and unlike the Jews during the holocaust, these idiots would gladly throw themselves in the ovens for partisan political lies and rhetoric. What will it take for them to learn? Perhaps when they are hungry and have cheered as our leaders rob this country into the stone age, they will then admit that perhaps morals, dignity, honesty, and liberty are then what they want, once it is too late.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Always remember:

If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

What a joke

This "poll" is a joke and obviously being taken by non-informed people. These folks would be the same ones that support term limits. After all, it's easier to change them out than to have to become informed voters on the issues!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
~ Peter Marshall, US Senate Chaplain 1947

A lot of people do seem to

A lot of people do seem to have a clue on social issues but do not yet understand that the empire is killing us or that DHS are Nazis.





you are correct they still

you are correct they still think the patriot act is good.

Not only do they think the Patriot Act is good..

...They think it protects freedom. They think it's constitutional. Because most Republicans have only read the first two amendments to the Bill of Rights. They believe in Freedom of Speech and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Nothing else below that. They were too lazy to read amendments Three through Ten. They put it down and went off to watch "24" or something.

They also do not understand that the President does not have a constitutional right to start wars, and they think that anything the President does is legal, because he's the President.

i read through the questions and available answers and did note the areas where you could write in your own, however, this won't help anyone in the repub party because they aren't asking the real questions and don't want real answers. i say its a ploy they picked up from the UN-president.




Is this a variation of the Delphi Technique?


these people don't care about changing ANYTHING. They will change JUST enough to continue getting votes and that's it. The GOP is a wash. It will always be a constant struggle to try and wrestle power away from the idiots that think we should legislate morality and blow people up in other parts of the world. They are just completely brainwashed.

The GOP is takin a ride on the faaaaaaaaaailboaaaat!!

By answering these

By answering these questions, you give them an idea on how to dupe people. They will talk talk talk and still do nothing. My suggestion is to fill it out as though your coming from a ONE WORLD Government Fascist view. Both parties can KMA. I have no respect for any of them.

I agree with you on its purpose Tim

All I see here is a "BS organizer."

"Fill this out so we know which lies to promise you next election."

If they can't figure out without a questionaire, why they lost as badly as they did, then they should just resign from their administrative positions in the GOP and allow new blood in, but yet they continue to fight that too, while they claim simultaneously that they want to appease people. Their continued actions of snubbing participation from newcomers that support the original GOP principles indicates clearly that their persistent intent of continued corruption has not changed remotely.

In short: They obviously have no intention of changing anything other than their election tactics. They have learned nothing.

You are welcome NOT to participate...

and continue to throw tantrums on the DailyPaul for the next four years.
Meanwhile there are still some adults on this site that would like to follow the example of Ron Paul by working to transform the Republican Party.

You are being unfair

With all due respect, just because someone has an opinion about the two branches of the US Polit Bureau, doesn't mean they are immature or just throwing a tantrum. They, and I, have a right to be angry given all the noise from the RNC/DNC and the obvious orchestrations to carry out the "Quigley Principle" on our fellow citizens.

You are welcome to try and transform the RNC, I personally think Neo-conservative Republicans are too closed-minded to ever change. They have a form of communism they enjoy because they get to scream about little side issues and religion and ignore the machinations of the CFR, etc... Ideally, I see the only option as being another populist party that is truly against the Iraq Occupation and has our staunch views of individual liberty. The chances of that happening before the next election is very tiny (because organizing liberty-minded people is like herding a million cats).

I am helping locally with your goal and perhaps I should do more, even though I am skeptical. But, claiming your unachievable (I believe) goal is beyond reproach and above us "lower creatures" is how the two party duopoly got started in the first place.
