To Change Do-Nothing Republican Incumbents, We Must Replace Them

So, we are in the last 13 months of President Obama’s lawless reign. Have you noticed the American people do not seem to have any elected Republicans in the House and Senate who will actually do anything to stop President Obama’s lawlessness?

The power of the purse will not be used by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. The House Republicans and Senate Republicans are too timid to challenge President Obama with impeachment.

Things Are Getting Worse, Not Better, Apparently By Design. No?

You know all that follows. We now have ISIS sleeper agents in our midst. President Obama allows our borders to be porous. He allows Muslim fanatics from Muslim countries into our country with no possibility of vetting them.

He does not deport violent illegal immigrants. He releases other violent criminals from our prisons.

He is making our military weaker, making it smaller, including weakening its morale through insane personnel policies incompatible with building unit cohesiveness.

The Obama Doctrine seems to be, as to all issues, whether as to foreign policy or domestic policy, this: Figure out the worst possible course of action (including doing nothing) for the American people and for America’s future, and pick that one.

Candidate Obama promised he would try to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” And he is carrying out that attempt, and the “loyal opposition” does not seem interested in trying to stop him. President Obama’s response to the latest Islamist massacre is to tell Americans to not be prejudiced against Islamists and to start disarming Americans.

We now have sheriffs advising all concealed carry permit holders they have a duty to always be armed in public. That is good advice. I am lucky, I live in Arizona, where every adult may carry a loaded firearm, concealed or unconcealed, just about wherever they like.

Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News has advised:

The plan:

Number one. Get a gun. Buy one legally. Learn how to shoot. And be primed to use it. I don’t care if you get a long gun, a handgun, a revolver, a semi-automatic. Get whatever gun you can handle. And don’t let anyone talk you out of it.  The Second Amendment to the Constitution and the United States Supreme Court confirm your right to have one.

. . .

You need to recognize the danger. Talk to your neighbors. Create organizations to stay current on questionable behavior not just in your community but around the country.

First, get a gun and learn how to use it. “Create organizations to stay current on questionable behavior not just in your community but around the country.” There is an organization, probably, already in existence in your community that you can join for this purpose: Your local Republican Party committee.

Like-minded Conservatives Are All Around You. How To Find Them.

Are you feeling as though you are impotent politically? Are you feeling alone politically? Would you like a way to organize and unite politically with other conservatives that will empower you and your conservative cohorts? And also hit several proverbial birds with one stone?

Then let me suggest that you read this article published here earlier this year. It will give you step-by-step instructions on how you can increase your political power. It will explain to you how you can unite and organize politically for real political action where you live, both in your own voting precinct and your own local Republican Party committee. An earlier article explains this strategy in more detail.

So what are the other birds you will be hitting, besides organizing and uniting for political action, by becoming a Republican Party precinct committeeman in your voting precinct? Besides becoming eligible to vote for the committee’s officers, you will also get access to addresses and names of your fellow Republicans in your precincts, and perhaps also their phone numbers. This will allow you to locate and meet other conservatives in your “political neighborhood” — your voting precinct — which will probably include the street you live on and your actual neighborhood. You will learn how to contact the Republicans in your precinct, some of whom may be conservative and perhaps “into” firearms.

While uniting and organizing politically, you can also organize and unite with respect to knowing that you can depend upon one another, one Republican neighbor to other Republican neighbors, in the event of a calamity. You will be able to exchange telephone numbers and email addresses to reach out to one another if need be. You will see each other at least once a month at your monthly Republican committee meeting (most committees meet once a month). And, if you choose, you can meet together as fellow precinct committeemen whenever you like to get to know one another better and to brainstorm on how to get out the vote for the primary and general elections.

Through all of this local activity with fellow Republicans in your voting precinct, you will have, in a sense, created an ad hoc “Neighborhood Watch” – a network of fellow, like-minded conservatives who know they can rely upon one another if needed.

Will Enough Conservatives Do This? Will You? I Hope And Pray You Do.

Here we are, almost seven years into the lawless reign of President Obama, and it is obvious most of the Republicans we have elected have no intention of challenging his lawlessness. So, what can “we the [conservative] people” do? Do we not need to roll up our sleeves and get united and organized politically for real political action that will result in electing better people? And, knowing that only about 200,000 conservatives are needed to unite “inside” the Republican Party apparatus to change the Party from a half-strength, ideologically-split Party (see the second article linked above for a full explanation, including the embedded short video) into a full-strength, solidly-conservative Party with a robust get-out-the-vote ground game, is it not imperative that every conservative who wants to “do something” politically to help defeat the Democrats join together as precinct committeemen where they live?

Obviously, a Republican Party at 100% strength at the precinct level is twice as potent a political force as one with only half its precinct committeemen slots filled.

You Will Not Be Receiving Invitations From The Republican National Committees

And why does the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee fail to ever put in their letters to you that you could really, really help the Party by filling one of the 200,000 or so precinct committeeman slots where you live, and that odds are about 50% that there’s an opening in your precinct? It’s because the “establishment” Chambercrat Republicans of the Republican National Committees do not want conservatives in the Party. They want your money, they want your time, they want your efforts, but they do not want you to become “voting members” of the Party apparatus because you might vote them out of their officer positions.

It Is Up To Each Of Us To Make This Happen

Conservatives organized and united for real political action “inside” the Republican Party, filling up all of the vacant Party “voting member” slots to elect conservatives to all of the officer positions, all the way “up” to the Republican National Committee. I like the sound of that. Can it happen? Yes. Will it? That is up to conservatives.

Thank you.
