Some of you read my article “Unite Or Die: The ‘Hobbits’ Plan To Take Over The GOP” and liked it.
Some of you told me in the comments, or via email, you would take action to become Republican Party precinct committeemen. Bravo! For those who commented and responded, I want you to know that I am encouraged and optimistic that “We the People” really may unite and organize as soon as possible to change our government.
For those others of you who may have liked the ideas in my article, but are still wondering what to do, I have a mission for you. It’s simple and will not take a lot of time. It’s a reconnaissance mission, or “recon” mission.
Long ago, I was trained to find, recruit, train, and then send people on secret and dangerous missions into hostile areas for intelligence collection purposes. It was serious business. People’s lives were at risk, as was our nation’s survival. That’s about all I can say about it.
The mission I am giving you won’t be secret or dangerous to you personally, but it also involves our nation’s survival. It’s serious business. But you will be up to the task (otherwise I would not ask you to do it), and it should prove not only to be very interesting, but also very rewarding personally – because you will be helping to save our republic.
This mission should only take about three hours.
As I mentioned, it’s a “recon” mission. All you need to do is find your local Republican Party committee and attend its next meeting. Just take notes. Observe. But ask these questions of the officers (print this and take these questions with you):
- How many voting members of this committee are there?
- How many of these voting member slots exist?
- How many are filled?
- How many voting member slots exist for my voting precinct?
- How many exist?
- How many precincts of this committee (it might be a county committee or a “lower” committee, such as a state legislative district committee) have no representation on this committee because they have no precinct committeemen?
- How do I become a voting member of this committee?
- Does the state Republican Party committee, or this committee, have a “Precinct Committeeman Handbook” and, if so, how do I get a copy?
- If there is a Handbook, is it published online?
A good friend who became a precinct committeeman (it’s a she, and I have forgiven her for marrying a Naval Academy grad) has succinctly summed up what we conservatives must do:
Many of us only came to political awareness in 2008, and the reality of the treachery of the Establishment GOP has been mind-numbing. I won’t go into the litany of all the betrayals because the folks reading Breitbart already know them. But the author is correct and we’ve learned all this the hard way.
We can’t change them, we must replace them.
“We can’t change them, we must replace them.”
YOUR REPORTING REQUIREMENTS — EASY
Then report back here to your case officer in the comments or by email. Tell me what you found out.
FINDING YOUR TARGET AND OBJECTIVE
So how do you find your local Republican Party committee? That varies from state to state. But there are universal ways to do it.
Google is your friend. Plug into Google search terms like: Republican Party [county name] [state name] committee chairman officers.
I have found that those Republican Party committees that have officers who are trying to grow the ranks of the precinct committeemen are in the hands of conservatives, and most of them have pretty good websites that explain how and why to become a Republican Party precinct committeeman.
My legislative district committee, LD 18, is part of the Maricopa (Arizona) Republican Party Committee, and it, too, has a terrific explanation of “how it works” because conservatives are in the majority and they want conservative Republicans who search out our Party to obtain a step-by-step set of instructions to join them “inside” our Party, where the real ball game of politics is played.

One of our very accomplished conservative precinct committeemen (“PC”) put together this great tutorial, which we link at the “Take Action” drop down menu: http://beapc.com/
When I became a PC back in 2007, neither the Maricopa County Republican Committee nor the Arizona Republican Party web sites had a word about this. My legislative district committee at that time did not even have a web site. Some of us helped to fix all of that.
A good way to gauge the competency of the Republicans in charge of any given committee, and perhaps whether conservatives are in the majority, is whether the committee’s web site has a word on it about how to get involved in the Party as a voting member of it.
An example (see if you can find one word at the Mississippi Republican Party committee’s web site about how to become a PC): http://www.msgop.org/
In the end, it is up to each conservative to figure out how to unite and organize for real political action where he lives to effect real political change by getting out the vote for the best conservative candidates in the all-important, traditionally-very-low-turnout primary elections. The best organization to use for doing this, as I explained in my earlier article linked above, is the Republican Party.
I would not send you on a mission if I thought you were not capable of completing it. You are.
Now get to it!
Questions? No question is a stupid one. Please send them my way.
You can do this. You are an American. I will help you.
