The Precinct Committeeman Project (Dedicated to ColdWarrior)AL, AK, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA

AL, AK, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA

Since I wrote my post outlining the Committeeman Project – way back in May – I have to admit that I basically abandoned the subject in all but name. Thankfully, ColdWarrior was more than kind enough to not just pick up the slack, but to lead by example and continue beating the drum both online and offline.

Recent events, and I’m including the events that led up to a “Bipartisan” who was more accustomed to warring against his own party than the opposition (he was actually praising his opponent at campaign rallies) winning our nomination last year, the selection of a Congressional candidate by party bosses that would have given the House Progressive Caucus it’s first Republican member, the reflexive preference for vapid empty platitude-mouthing “moderates” over principled conservatives, not to mention the horror that is the 111st Congress, has brought home the fact that the conservatives can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines and leave it all in the hands of professional politicians too frightened of the media and beholden to special interests and pedestrian pencil-pushing Beltway campaign consultants to make a stand for principle and fight.

As Morton Blackwell very nicely put it for us
; “now is not the time to take our marbles and go home.” On the contrary, now is the time to get into the game. Now is the time to get involved to Right the ship that is the Republican Party and steer it in the Right direction. Third Parties are a waste of time and abandoning the GOP for the Bipartisans is ceding the field to the other side. And that is what the Committeeman Project is all about.

Over the past months – it needs to be said – ColdWarrior has been a true one-man recruiting army, exhorting people to join the ranks of Precinct Committeemen around the country in their counties and neighborhoods. His dedication has been nothing short of inspiring, so while I am basically restricted to just being a cheerleader on the sidelines, this contribution is dedicated in most part, to assisting his tireless efforts and for being the much-needed broken record on this subject.

The following (in this and the next four posts) is a listing of all the counties – boroughs [AK] and Parrishes [LA] – in the United States with the number of electoral precincts as on record last year and their populations as estimated in 2009 by the Census Bureau, arranged by state. The beginning of any project is knowledge, and while I may not be able to play as large as I should, this is my contribution to help things along.

Find your state, your county and get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. How many of your Committeeman positions are occupied, how many are vacant? Do you have content-free “moderates” heading your party apparatus? What will you do about it?
