Have you heard of “GOTV?” It’s not a new cable channel. It’s Get Out The Vote.
“VINOs?” Read on.
Here’s the “main thing”:
To make a long story short, here’s a just over 11 minute video explaining all you need to do to actually make a difference in terms of increasing voter turnout in the November general election. But, it will take some initiative on your part. You’ll have to actually contact your local Republican Party committee. Know how to do that? You are a “member” of the “Republican Party,” no? Or are you? Ever been to a meeting of your local Republican Party “committee?” Do you know the name of your county’s Republican Party “committee?”
Do you know what that all means?
From now until Nov. 6, is not the main thing making sure every Republican and every Republican-leaning voter actually casts a ballot? If that’s the main thing, please ask yourself what you will be doing to VERIFIABLY make that happen.
Not just preaching on the internet to the conservative choir about making it happen. Or preaching to the conservative internet choir about the latest Obama outrage. No, instead, how will you cause, verifiably, one more Republican or Republican-leaning voter to actually cast a ballot. Have you thought out how you will do that?
What will you do that will actually increase voter turnout for our side?
Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard wrote an article a while back explaining, based on exit polls, that about 4 million conservatives decided to “protest” John McCain’s candidacy in 2008 because he wasn’t “conservative enough” for them. How did these intellectual giants achieve their lofty purpose? Either by not casting a vote in the presidential contest or actually voting for Obama. (Sorry, I can’t find my link to Hayes’ article. It exists. Ask him if you don’t believe me.) The result of the “protest” of these conservative intellectual giants who believe we win by losing?” They helped send our country on the destructive path of the Cloward-Piven Strategy.
Way to go!!!
Couple those idiots (who think losing is winning) with the fact that in 2008, nationwide, about 35% of registered Republicans didn’t bother to vote.
Want to change that Republican voter turnout? Want to get conservatives who lean Republican to the polls? Want to do that where you live? In your “political neighborhood?” Your voting precinct? Want to do that with VERIFIABLE results? Are you willing to spend three of four hours of “sweat equity” actually making phone calls and delivering candidate literature to doorsteps where you live?
Or will you just make more videos about the latest Obama outrage? Or go to more rallies about the latest Liar Media outrage. Etc.?
Focus, focus, focus on what matters. Votes. In elections. Focus, focus, focus on getting EVERY POSSIBLE “good person” voter to the polls. No?
If you don’t like this focus, stop reading.
In a moment, I’ll tell you how you can actually make a real difference in changing the outcomes of your local, county, state and national elections.
First, I want to link to a Diary I posted back in March of 2011 about the Redstaters who had identified themselves as actually being “inside” the Republican Party as “voting members” of it (and they know what that means):
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES “On abortion, the Democrats are extremists.” Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The first half of this debate has been an absolute trainwreck. Almost everyone on the stage (with the possible exceptions of Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz) has come off as more unlikeable than they were when they started. The Federalist’s Sean Davis I think has the best summary of the first half of the debate tonight and what is | Read More »
