I'm not a newbee

I've been elected as a delegate both times. I was elected chair of our district conventions after we dominated our county and we won our district both times as well. I've slogged it out with state rules, dirty games, and led the charge since '07. I've even had to deal with the feeling of needing a shower every five minutes for a whole day because I was negotiating deals with Santorum people. I've done the state party functions like Lincoln Days. I've helped get committeemen elected. I was organizing the '07 Tea Party before most people saw the website. Don't you dare make the assumption I have never done anything for the movement.

I've just seen enough and I don't think taking over the GOP is a possibility, that's all. They will literally kill us before that happens, I'm not kidding. All the effort going on might, in some miracle, get Rand elected and then what? We will still be dealing with a statist Republican who just "compromises" nicer.
