Fear Provokes Blowback

Fear often provokes blowback: in this case, they clearly were paranoid about a "take over" by someone. Why they think the LP would crash the GOP, I have no idea. We barely have enough time, money, and members to handle our own meetings (which, from what I've seen, follow Robert's Rules, much better.)

But the point, here, is, somebody go talk to them. Show up at meetings. Then, even if some are still paranoid of the crazy Uncle Ron people, the others will at least have reason to doubt them.

This is why it pays, sometimes, to replace the scary T-shirts with a suit, and stop writing essays on signs, in favor of a cup of coffee or a beer with prospective GOP supporters.

What do you think?
