Almost three years ago conservatives lost an election, actually the election was lost long before that. What some of us understood and others did not is what the consequences of those elections would be.
Here we are today years later after many people followed Ken Blackwell’s plan to rebuild the grassroots and Coldwarrior’s tireless attempts to get conservatives to govern their party, we still have plenty of people here at Redstate and elsewhere who are utterly shocked as to how far left this administration is, or the realization that Mitt Romney is a RINO. All the time there is no shortage of stories, posts, comments about some underhanded scheme Barack Obama is up to or how the RINOs in Congress are selling us down the river.
I must apologize I am just not outraged. I should be right? What could be more important than being engaged in the political process and fighting to save America from ruin. What could be more important than Barack Obama’s defeat next year. Well Nothing. Than why am I not outraged by the latest shocker by Glenn Beck or Michelle Malkin? I am just too busy to really care. You see I joined my local party over a year ago, got involved in a congressional campaign, became a County and State Committee member and now I am the Chair of my Town GOP Committee. Now that I am chair I will be real busy. There is a lot of work that has to get done like setting up fundraisers, running meetings, recruiting conservative candidates, recruiting conservative members etc. In the six New England States there are no Precinct Committeemen, Precinct Chairs or Precinct Delegates. City, Town and Ward committees are the local party organizations that are responsible for getting out the vote on election day. I am thrilled and honored to be in this position in this biennial cycle.
There is so much to do between now and November of next year so I just won’t have a lot of time to be outraged.
