Great Advice, but choose the battles that you can win.

I have been advocating that if you are in a R state (OK, UT, WY, KY, TX, TN...) or even a neutral state (IA, FL, NC, VA...) you should make the effort to take over the GOP. However, in the strong D states (VT, RI, NY, NM, IL, HI, DE, CT, CA...) you are wasting your effort which could be put into your strong state party being taken over by liberty people.

Regardless of which path, R or D you choose, your influence will not be very effective unless you are willing to walk out and vote in the final election for liberty candidates (not McCain or Romney) but rather Libertarian or Constitutional candidates.
