Republicans Electing a New Chairman Jan. 25th – Ron Paul Republicans vs. Establi


LINK

quote:

This Thursday, January 23rd, the Republican convention will start in Charlotte, North Carolina. This is where elections will take place for the next National Committee Chairman. However, this year during the Chairman elections, Republicans could see a shift in the overall platform of the party, if current Chairman Reince Priebus loses to Mark Willis. Priebus has been the RNC Chairman for only one term, looking to roll into his second. Willis on the other hand has been Maine’s Republican National Committeeman.

The difference between the two is glaring. Priebus believes in a top down styled Republican Party and Willis thinks a bottom up party would be more beneficial, as that would bring more transparency to the entire party. Interestingly, Willis has come up as part of the ‘Ron Paul Republican’ movement within the GOP and played a key role during the National Convention in Tampa, Florida.

Since Ron Paul’s last campaign, the Libertarian-driven supporters have infiltrated the GOP from all sides, which has seemed to only anger top Republican members. In states like Iowa, Minnesota, Maine, Nevada and others, the Ron Paul Revolution, as its been branded, has gotten likeminded individuals elected to various spots. Not only have ‘Ron Paul Republicans’ taken spots inside the GOP, but also have endured cheating, physical assault and fraud.

In truth, this is the reason for the passion in the movement.

We had no real shot of getting RP elected, BUT, his campaign was a vital platform for the message of liberty and peace-which this country desperately needs.

If, and that's a BIG IF, we can capture the party platform, it'll be game set match. The thing about libertarianism is the appeal to the best of both worlds: conservative fiscal policies coupled with "liberal" social policies (liberal being in quotes, because ideally, there wouldn't be any prohibitionist policies in place-in the end being more conservative than progressive, but I digress)....

Couple those utopian ideals with the strong foundation for non violence, and you have a HUGE electorate for a base, and would beat almost any political platform the Dems can throw at us.

This movement, unlike our Tea Party movement, will be difficult to hijack because of a bottom-up approach and broad base.

Exciting stuff to some...at the same time scary stuff to those in power.

is this a prohibition pun?


But really, the Libertarians (whom I side with) are using all the loopholes that the Establishment has in place for themselves. The only difference is when the Libertarians use it, we are scheming bastards who have no respect for anyone. When the Establishment does it, it is the status quo.

I really hope to see some major platform changes by 2016

the big money in the republican party will not allow the ron paul guys to get to the upper echelon bc the big money backers made their money within the same establishment the ron paul guys want to change

An exercise in futility.

And if he does get elected, he'll be set up with a underage prostitute in the coming months.
