What Mitt Romney could be saying to “the Republican base” to seal the deal to victory over President Obama

I know many of you conservatives who have registered as Republican Party voters don’t believe I have any core conservative beliefs and believe I advocated for a federal individual mandate that all Americans buy health insurance or go to jail. I didn’t. And I don’t.
But here’s what I do know. And do advocate. Now.
First, we conservative Americans have to unite and organize to Get Out The Vote like never before if we are going to defeat President Obama in November.
Second, the best way for we conservatives to unite and organize to Get Out The Vote like never before to defeat President Obama and the other Democrat candidates in all of the partisan races in November is to unite and organize inside a political party. And that political party is, obviously, the Republican Party. And I don’t just mean registering to vote as a Republican. I mean more than that. I mean finding your local Republican Party committee — they usually meet monthly — and going to its meeting and finding out how you can volunteer to become a voting member of the Party. In most states, that’s called becoming a “precinct committeeman.” Regardless of the name, by becoming one — and it’s pretty easy — you get to not only vote for the local and county Party officers, but you might also be able to vote to endorse candidates in the all-important, traditionally-very-low-turnout primary elections.
Anyone from the Party ever told you about this? Any other candidates in the presidential primary told you about this? Well, it’s about time somebody did, and I’m telling you now.
About half of these “voting slots” in the Party, nationwide, are vacant right now. And about one-third of the voting precincts in America have not even one Republican Party precinct committeeman slot filled. Not one. In about one third of the voting precincts in America, not one of these vital volunteer slots to help Get Out The Vote and to be a liaison between the Republican voters in their precinct and the Party is filled with a warm body. In other words, we conservative Americans are going into battle against the Democrat Party, in our local precincts, at about half strength and with fully one third of our precincts having not even one Republican Party “boots on the ground” volunteer going door-to-door or making Get Out The Vote phone calls for our candidates.
As I said, our Republican Party is at half-strength. It’s at its weakest where it needs to be strongest. At the neighborhood level. The precinct level. We conservative Republicans must change that. Will you please attend your next local Republican Party committee meeting? To learn how to volunteer to get involved as a precinct committeeman? It only takes a couple of hours a month. Will you attend your meeting and learn how to help Get Out The Vote? Did you know that about 35% of registered Republicans did not bother to vote in the 2008 election that John McCain lost to President Obama by just 53 to 47 per cent?
I want to win the presidency. For you. For America. To get our country back on track. And to keep it on the track of less government spending, less government regulation, and lower taxation, “we the conservative people” need to re-energize the Republican Party with conservatives inside it. Won’t you help me? And help your country?
Please go to PrecinctProject.us to learn more. Then find your local committee and attend its meetings. You won’t be disappointed.
Thank you. And God bless America.
In 2012, will YOU become a “voting member” of the Republican Party in your precinct?
