What happened in Carson City, NV yesterdaySubmitted by ausscyn on Thu, 04/16/2009 - 14:40
The above link is to a story about the thousands of demonstrators who showed up at the capitol of Nevada yesterday. While I spent about an hour at the demonstration videotaping the speeches & the amazing crowds. I spent the majority of my day at the Republican State Central Committee meeting trying to represent. It was tough, The room was filled with the same country club RINO's who keep railing about growing the party, & wondering where the people & money are going to come from to overthrow Obama. For the past year I have encouraged, cajoled, & pleaded with Ron Paul people in my state to get elected to their State Central Committees & come to these twice yearly meetings, so that we can get our act together & elect an executive board for the SCC that represents US!
I've pretty much failed. It was the same old little group of us at that meeting - vastly outnumbered & outvoted. Next fall, the executive board will be elected. If we don't have the votes, we'll go down in flames & the Republican party of Nevada will be run by the same bunch of DC cronies.
While protesting is fun & makes you feel great when it's done on the scale it was yesterday, what would be even more fun would be to take over the Republican party in the state of Nevada, much less the rest of the country. I am soooo disappointed today in my Campaign For Liberty members, and Ron Paul meetup members who just want to write e-mails & carouse with the crowds. You demand your rights, but you won't participate in the process that's in place for taking your rights back. Demonstrating does not create change. You have to elect people to office.
In July, there will be a regional conference in Las Vegas for the Campaign for Liberty. I know hundreds of you will want to be there to hear speeches & be inspired by Dr. Paul. Again, this will be all you will do. Are you ever going to wake-up, infiltrate this Republican party & take it back? It's floundering on its back right now, ripe for take-over. Yet, you don't show up - pitiful.........
When are you going to Walk the Walk & not just Talk the Talk.
What would Ron Paul do?
