...while leadership has proven to sleep with swine, an ever growing amount of underlings and grassroots people in the GOP are already or are slowly becoming sympathetic to our cause. We have to pursue their hearts and minds, and if continuously outing their leadership as not beholden to their own rules and promises makes our job easier (it will), then we'll continue to catch them in lies.
When Priebus doesn't do squat like most of us assume based off his actions to date, when he doesn't honor his pledge to meet with us and discuss the rules, it's now documented that he once again remained divisive and disinterested in the libertarian wing of the party.
Like I mentioned in these comments, I'm not working through the party anymore because it's too frustrating for me personally and I feel like I'm more effective in other areas, but that does not mean that working through the GOP is not necessary. I'm not out protesting in the streets either, but that does not mean that's not necessary too. I support all efforts to advance liberty and expose the crooks. What's so hard to understand about that?
To quote a good friend of mine, "If you tell me that we are charging the gates of hell and I say I will support you then I promise you won't have to look around for me. I will be the guy on your right with a bucket of water."
I've told my friends who have made the decision to stay and fight for all the grounds liberty has won in local and national GOP politics (which in Texas is quite impressive), and as I said, dammit, that's what I intend on doing!

Please try to be more tolerant of others' means to our same ends, assuming we have the same ends at heart.
What happens when SHTF and all those GOPers are looking for answers, looking for where to go? Wouldn't we be in a better position to influence them if we've been in their meetings the whole time leading up to the crisis trying to warn of the impending danger?
