Heard it on Hannity tonight. Mark Levin may have actually included the word "conservative," but I'm not sure. Regardless, it was implied.
Mr. Levin provided no nuts-and-bolts specifics about the need for conservatives to become PRECINCT COMMITTEEMEN (nor does he in his book, Liberty and Tyranny), but I believe that's the idea Levin was trying to convey.
Are you conservative? (Sorry, I know if you are a "Redstate-er" you are, but a lot of lurkers come here.) If you are a conservative, for crying out loud, if you are not a Republican Party precinct committeeman ("PC"), get off the H-E-double-hockey-sticks sidelines and into the ball game of Republican Party politics, where the boots hit the ground, and become a voting member of the Party.
Because in some states the cut-off for being able to become a voting member of the Party (that is, a precinct committeeman -- it's called precinct captain in some states, precinct associate in others) for the next election cycle is fast approaching.
For some states, December. For some, January 2010. Every state is different.
(And, please, don't ask me to figure it out for you. You've got a computer. An internet connection. You know what state you live in. You have a phone. Do some Google searching. Make some phone calls. If you don't get a call back, it's because some volunteer didn't follow through. Call back. Be persistent. GET IT DONE.)
Fifty per cent of the Republican Party precinct committeeman slots nationwide are VACANT! And the split between conservatives and moderates in the filled PC slots is about 50-50 per cent.
Fill up the vacant slots and that ratio goes to 75 per cent conservative to 25 per cent moderate. Overnight.
This is not rocket science.
Do it if only so we no longer have to suffer through listening to Michael Steele pretend to be a conservative. I'm sure he's a nice man. But he's no conservative.
Time Out. Time To Think. Real Hard.
Who elected Michael Steele to be the RNC Chairman and "spokesman" for the Party? Drum roll. Have you figured it out?
It was the registered Republicans who were precinct committeemen who elected Michael Steele. Mere registered Republicans had no say in his election. If you weren't a PC, you had no vote in whether Michael Steele or some real conservative became the Chairman of the RNC. Is this news to you? If it is, you need to educate yourself.
Want more conservative leaders and spokesmen in the Republican Party? Become a Republican Party precinct committeeman. NOW.
Do. It. Now.

I'm working on getting a fairly prominent Republican Party "rock star" to become the national spokesperson for this. Will you help me draft
I am only one. One conservative Republican Party precinct committeeman desperately trying to recruit more.
