Maybe you already know about these wonderful, politically-astute, politically-informed, internet-savvy ladies, Diamond and Silk, also known on their YouTube channel as “The Viewers View.”

Here they are explaining what really needs to happen for “Donald J. Trump” to win the Iowa Republican caucuses.

Here is the link to their “Ditch and Switch Now” web site. Please go there.

Listen to these ladies. Study what they have to say. Then:

  1. Make sure you are registered to vote.
  2. Vote in the primary (or caucus, depending upon your state; The Green Papers will inform you if your political party will not).
  3. Become a “voting member of your political party.
  4. Become a delegate to your political party’s state convention.

Keep in mind that only about 25 percent of Republicans in Iowa, typically, participate in the caucuses.

Let that sink in.

A former Republican National Committee Chairman, known to be part of the “Republican In Name Only” Republican Party “Establishment” that really does not believe in the conservative principles and values embodied in the Republican Party Platform, allegedly once said, about political campaigns, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” Translation: The only thing that really matters in a primary or general election is who gets the most votes.

Good advice.

And, regarding the Republican Party and its officer elections and primary elections, the BEST place for conservatives to affect those outcomes is to be “in” the Party where you live. Go here to learn more. Follow the links, please.

Then, if need be, “Ditch and Switch!”

Going to a rally for a candidate is not enough. Sending in a donation to a candidate’s campaign is not enough. Blogging is not enough. Sending money to a Super PAC or some 501(c) group is a complete waste, as most of that money goes into the back pockets of the people running those groups or the back pockets of their vendors.

What really matters is actual participation in a political party in your own precinct (you live in one).

Why is the “Republican Party” apparatus not “conservative enough” for most complaining conservatives? Simple. Not enough of those same complaining conservatives are “in” the Party as precinct committeemen of the Party. Half of these “voting member” slots of the Party are VACANT. Want to “do something” to save our country? Then become a Republican Party precinct committeeman in your precinct.

Ever been in a foxhole? Ever dug one? Ever stood watch on a wall with a loaded gun? Ever trained for warfare? Ever been in the woods hungry?

Becoming and being a Republican Party precinct committeeman and helping to get out the vote for the best conservative candidates in the all-important, traditionally-very-low-turnout Republican primary elections is not even close to that. BUT, it is vital to the survival of this nation.

“Do something” so you can tell your kids that you “did something” politically in 2016 to save our country.

Watch this clip from the movie “Patton” for inspiration (scroll to the 5 minute mark).

Thank you.
