As I have mentioned before, the RNC passed my 5 Core Principles resolution with unanimity a little over a year ago at the national level. In short those were: Our rights come from God, and it’s the government’s job to protect those rights. We believe in traditional marriage Legal immigration – not illegal immigration The second amendment The sanctity of life. . . . all of these are in direct opposition to the democrat platform. Another set of principles for our republic that most republicans can agree on are these: Private enterprise is superior to government enterprise. There is a need for efficiency and economy in our government. Government is best when it’s kept at the local level, and state sovereignty must not be infringed. A favorable tax climate is best for a prosperous economy and abundant jobs. To be effective we must use social media to further these objectives. Politicians understand voter numbers, and they need to hear from you when they stray off the reservation. We need to be writing letters to the newspapers and calling in to the radio stations to keep our base motivated and get our message out. Too many fear the liberal media, but we must be as aggressive as the left. Presently we are not. In the last election we were putting up yard signs while Obama was using social media. If we want to beat him, then we need to beat him at his own game. Your freedom of speech is at risk, due to an aggressive left using Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals,” which emphasizes personal attacks in order to silence the voices of opponents. Many have fallen into this trap. Remember that the media is […]

I recently returned from the RNC meeting in Memphis, Tennessee. Several resolutions and major rule changes were passed. The rule change has some good, and some things I’m not particularly crazy about. The best part is there will be 8 debates and that we will control who the moderators are, not the liberal news media – that’s good. A recent poll showed that only 7% of the media is conservative, which means we seldom get a fair shake. No more 23 debates with liberal moderators like last time. There was debate in the rules committee and once again in the general session concerning whether we should treat presidential candidates like teenagers and tell them when and where they can and cannot participate in debates. Under the new rule, if a candidate participates in a debate outside the authorization of the RNC, he will be barred from further sanctioned debates (not the reduction of delegates that was proposed previously). The problem was in determining what a sanctioned debate would look like and what constituted a non-sanctioned debate. So, in typical fashion, the new rule forms a committee, of which 5 members are chosen by Chairman Priebus and each of four regions will select two members (one female and one male) from the region. The committee will have the authority to sanction debates for the RNC and impose the penalty of removing a candidate if he/she deviates from the sanctioned debates on their own. The question then became: what would a non-sanctioned debate, resulting in punishment, look like? This now resides in the hands of the committee. They decide. This has the possibility of working against non preferred candidates by the GOP if future chairmen are not […]
