The Redstate Contributors’ GOTV Talking Points Open Thread
I hope that all of you here will share you GOTV (that’s “Get Out Out The Vote”) efforts in this crucial election. How many phone calls did you make? How many doors did you visit? If you live in a very red or very blue district, how many calls did you make for other conservative candidates not in your district? Me? I’ll confess I called | Read More »
Changing the culture. And the election outcomes. By changing your precinct.
[Originally published at UnifiedPatriots.com.] Some say we must change our culture if we are to change the outcome of the elections. One way to change the culture is to change it where you live. Each of us lives in a voting precinct. Do you know any of the other Republicans in yours? Do you want to? Do you know, for example. that if you become | Read More »
If the “Conservative Base” Exists, Where is it? How to make it Politically Powerful.
[Originally published at UnifiedPatriots.com] Many conservatives here and elsewhere make reference to the “conservative base,” usually in the context of some alleged misdeed of “the Establishment Republican leaders.” If this conservative base exists, why is it not running the Republican Party? If this conservative base exists, why is it not winning the primary elections, defeating Republicans Other Than Conservatives (“ROTCs”)? Answer: ROTCs have been suiting | Read More »

How Conservatives can get the RNC to address the MS “Establishment problem” right now.
Much has already been written about what Republican “Establishment” people did in the Mississippi primary run-off election on behalf of incumbent Thad Cochran. Some have written a letter to Republican Party National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to “investigate” the “potentially illegal” activities of these “Establishment” people. Chairman Priebus might acquiesce to these demands, but I doubt it. Why do I doubt it? Because, looking at the names of | Read More »
A Very Good Book To Debut April 8: “TAKEOVER.” Provides A Real Political Strategy For Conservatives
A couple of days ago, a friend alerted me to the impending publication of Richard Viguerie’s book “Takeover: The 100-Year War For The Soul Of The GOP And How Conservatives Can Finally Win It.” Potentially, this book will be a “game changer” in terms of the title’s objectives. What’s the strategy? At the Amazon site, if one clicks on “Look Inside!” on the cover, and | Read More »
Another good thing happened, caused by conservatives becoming precinct committeemen in AZ
[Promoted from the diaries. The work of conservative activists within the party structure will be an invaluable tool in the 2014 and 2016 elections. From helping select candidates, either through caucus or primary, to running ground game operations in general elections, much of this work is done by committed conservative volunteers who are often overlooked. I hope to see more reports like the one below | Read More »
Arizona GOP State Committeemen censure John McCain — Get “Inside” Our Party. No?
Now up at Drudge. Linking to The Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/arizona-gop-censures-mccain-for-liberal-record/2014/01/25/939f1bcc-862e-11e3-aff8-191f8d178325_story.html Again, this did not “just happen.” It happened because enough conservatives got inside the Arizona Republican Party by becoming elected precinct committeemen where they live in their own “political neighborhood” — their precinct. Then, they elected enough conservatives to become a voting majority of conservatives. All the while they were getting to know one another | Read More »
When conservatives unite and organize inside their local Party committee, good things can happen
By now you may have heard that on Saturday, January 11, 2014, the Maricopa County Republican Committee precinct committeemen, at the Committee’s biennial Mandatory Meeting, voted to approve a resolution censuring Arizona Sen. John McCain. Here’s local television coverage, including an interview with the precinct committeeman, Timothy Schwartz, who drafted the resolution: Watch the eight minutes or so of discussion by those precinct committeemen who | Read More »
Time again for “the count.” Are you a PC? If not, why not?
Our Republican Party is defined by its voting members in every precinct. Are you one? In the past, I have gently urged conservative Republicans to stop just complaining about “the Republican Party” and, instead, get inside it to change it. So, it’s time again to ask those who post here: Are you actually a voting member of our Party where you live? Do you attend | Read More »
