Standing against big government and for the people!
I have been reading the comments from the Tea Party movement on new RNC Chairman Priebus. It appears many in the movement are cautious and apprehensive about throwing their support behind the new chairman, especially in light of all that we have experienced at the hands of the GOP/RNC. To those who are concerned, I recommend the review of the comments written by the people who live in Chairman Priebus' own state of Wisconsin. The Wisconsin comments are positive about both the man and his ability to handle the job of chairman.
I have stated in the past, and I continue to believe, that the GOP is the best conservative vehicle available to us right now. The first equitable and prudent step is to send the vehicle (the GOP) to the body shop!
Why the body shop you ask? In its current condition the RNC/GOP is not sufficient for our purposes. The GOP does not represent our movement's values. You could say the RINOs in the party confiscated our vehicle and rammed it into a ditch! So, to the body shop it goes for RESTORATION OF THE PARTY. The engine/Constitution and GOP party principles are in pristine condition. The real obstacle has been the Rinos behind the wheel. The RINOs battered our vehicle causing it to be stripped of its original pristine condition. The RINOs caused our car to lose its value and endangered the engine.
What is the meaning behind taking the vehicle/GOP to the body shop? It means 'We the People' are the best hope for restoring the Party. We don't simply accept the current condition of the GOP and move forward...we take a stand that states clearly that the Tea Party/ Conservative movement will restore our vehicle to the CLASSIC constitutional principles status the GOP once hailed. The restoring process will require beating out the dents incurred by the Rinos followed by primer and paint. Then we encourage Chairman Priebus and the true conservative elects to take it for a spin at our direction!
Personally, I refuse to walk away and start over. We cannot build a better mousetrap; other 3rd parties have tried for over 40 years and have not succeeded. I believe WE CAN restore the vehicle and appreciate the value. If we want to win in 2012 and replace Obama and many Senators then we need to become the NEW Conscience of the party. Our last election results where very telling about the power we have to restore this government. We gave the Republicans/GOP power in the House that they have not had for over 80 years. THE MOVEMENT DID THAT!
After reviewing Chairman Priebus's past experience and all his accomplishments, I truly believe he is someone with whom we can work. We can become HIS CONSCIENCE. I believe he is sincere in his desire to work with the grassroots movement. Only time will tell if he is strong enough to stand up to the major establishment RINOs and that brings me back to our Precinct strategy. If you want to see major change then YOU need to become Precinct Committeeman. The PC position will enable you to wield the power and influence you need to restore the GOP/vehicle
I am willing to support Chairman Priebus until he gives me a reason to change my decision. I will support the new Congress the same way. This is 2011, the year of accountability and I expect all of you to join me in holding their feet to the fire. I’m a positive person and therefore always hopeful. I still believe we are innocent until proven guilty. I believe everyone makes mistake, however, real character is developed or proven by the way ones handles the errors and how they grow from adversity. I do not believe all Republicans are bad people. I believe there are some really great people in the system trying to do what we have voted them in to do. Up until recently they had little, if any support from the sleeping giant.
Just remember how difficult it is to continue doing the 'right thing' if no one ever notices. It’s even harder if everything you hear is negativity from progressive special interest groups and their media buddies. We are all human and we all need a little kudos from time to time. I recommend that we remember that as we move forward.
