First and foremost, thank you for your pledge of support for my bid to be your new Republican National Committeeman!
.
But, I need your help.  Over the last month I have been making phone calls and meeting with delegates. The calls have been extremely encouraging and I have learned a great deal about what is important to all Oklahoma Republicans.
.
That said, I need you to know that every vote counts and I need you to make the significant effort to come to the convention and vote.  Additionally, if you know any delegates in your county or across the state, please call or email them and let them know who you support for National Committeeman. Also, encourage them to attend the OKGOP State Convention this Saturday at 301 NE 27th St Moore, OK 73160. Doors will open at 7am and registration will end at 9am.
.
I am excited to say that we are only a few days away from the State Convention which will take place this upcoming Saturday May, 14. With your support, and the hundreds of delegates who have pledged their support, we can reach victory on Saturday!
.
I am incredibly thankful for all the notes of support and the encouraging messages many of you have sent.
.
I am running for this position because I believe in the Republican Party. I believe that the principles of our Party, our Republican policies, and our conservative ideals are important enough to fight for. I believe in serving you, representing you, and as always, listening to you, the grassroots of our party.
.
Thank you again for your support.
.
God Bless you,
Richard Engle

Reblog: Grassroots just got a massive dose of RNC fertilizer

Reblogged from Republican Coalition of Denton County:

SHOVEL-READY?

Grassroots GOP leaders across Denton County and the state of Texas have begun a grassroots uprising, after the Republican National Committee began pushing through a set of hugely unpopular Rule changes at the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week. The rules attempt to take away the power of the grassroots to conduct business at the local, state, and national levels.

The Floor Fight that Should Have Occurred in Tampa; Now the Curtain has been Peeled Back

The stupid just doesn’t get any louder.  The person running for President really doesn’t need to be breaking rules, running roughshod over his own people and unseating whole delegations.  Nor should he even think about keeping minority reports from coming to the floor by disappearing chairmen and delaying convention buses arrival at the convention.  I cannot wait to see Morton Blackwell’s minority report and all about that bus ride to prevent us from hearing same.

Meanwhile Jeremy Blosser and the Grassroots team on the floor was doing everything possible to have a real convention and get a roll call vote, but the chair would hear none of that and ran roughshod over them and even booted the Maine Delegation.  If there is no such thing as rules and anyone can re-write them anytime, then we can all just ignore the party structure and get on with building the movement of ideas and limited government and finding ways to shut off the funding that allows some people to continue to try to milk the system.

It must be all in a paid political consultants’ days work when trying to make it look like all is well in Disneyworld.  Trouble is I wasn’t the only one who noticed this time.  It was glaring that there were cute blonde bouncy girls planted around the auditorium in little red dresses trying to get the crowd to look excited about the event.  There were signs passed out made to look like handmade signs that were so clearly NOT.  What hypocrisy.  Today, it is the talk of the town.  I wonder how one alienates the grassroots people and goes on to win the presidency?  If you want an event to be a coronation, then you at least have to make the serfs feel welcomed in the police state.

Did I mention stupidity overarching the doorway of the Republican Nation Convention?  Why would anyone except a lobbyist or someone looking for a consulting job even bother with the venue if we will be ignored at the mikes unless pre appointed for prime time viewing.  The real work of the Real Republicans is back home educating people about limited government and electing them to school boards and city councils and state houses and congressional offices where they can actually work to decrease government overhead and decline federal dollars with strings attached.  No Grassroots money should go to the RNC from henceforth and until grassroots principles are back in place and rules apply equally to all.

If we simply ignore the man behind the curtain, he will get bored with trying to act like he is in control of our lives when clearly he only makes matters worse and should be laughed out of town.

I hope we will discover the formula before we spend ourselves into third world status.

After this week, I remain skeptical that the RNC hierarchy of the Republican party will embrace the people or the philosophy and core principles of limited constitutional government when they have actually funded, utilized and endorsed the police state for their very own convention.  I do remain hopeful that the real grassroots people who believe in life and liberty and truly constitutional government are on the ground fighting in all fifty states and the territories too.  I know because I have met with many of them this week and shared information and promised to keep in touch.  To those I gave my card, I hope you read this and know that I salute your efforts and will continue mine!

May God be pleased to bless our efforts for Life and for Liberty in our Land in our Time!

A Blast from the Past – Mirroring the Republican Party then (2007) to Be the Republican Party now (2012)!

R3publicans

Fast forward to 2012 and on the road to Tampa — It is time for us to be the Republican Party.  We want to make sure our principles move forward, our people are elected, and our policies are implemented into action.  Look how far we have come and press on.  We are building the base now and will continue to do so step by step.

For Life and Liberty,

Mirroring the Republican Party – a campaign strategy piece

Mirroring the Republican Party
&
Winning the Nomination for Ron Paul
(a campaign strategy overview by Sandra Crosnoe – posted October 16, 2007)

A summary sheet of action items only is provided at the end of this article.

As the briefest of backgrounds, I have been a Republican activist for over 30 years and have known Ron Paul since his first congressional race. I serve on the board for Associated Conservatives of America (originally only in Texas and best known there). Most of what I am going to share with you is based on Texas experiences over many years and Oklahoma experience since 2005. That is important because the details may be different for your state, but the general idea is applicable nationwide.

Soon we will all go to the polls and vote in the Presidential Primary and the first item of note is that in some states you must be registered with the Republican Party to vote in the Republican Party. Action Item #1 is to find out if you are in an open state or a closed state and take appropriate action (i.e. if are in a closed state – register Republican to be able to vote for Ron Paul immediately!). [ed note: check here for state deadlines]

Winning at the polls is important, because it will in many states help determine the delegate count for your candidate for the nomination process. But it is not everything and in a race with as many candidates as we have the odds of a brokered convention are extremely high. That means that the delegates who may/may not be bound to the vote in their state on the first round of voting at the National Convention (depending on the rules of the State parties) will ultimately be able to vote their conscience and determine the party nominee.

Obviously the best outcome is a landslide at the polls and we sweep all delegates and take the nomination at the first round at the convention. But even if we could assure that and we cannot, we still should do the things I am about to tell you to build a firm foundation for getting the work done through a Ron Paul administration!

So the Republican party convention process becomes paramount for all that we are about to do and you simply must take some steps immediately to take this ground and hold this ground and elect people of principle at all levels of our government. I hope that we can together return the Republican Party to the wisdom of our founding fathers and constitutional principles throughout the land.

Here is the plan in a nutshell. Action Item #2 is to embed ourselves in the Republican Party, those who have not already done so long ago. We become involved in leadership and meetings and create a Ron Paul presence there. It really isn’t that hard. Find out who the leaders are in your county and ask if you can help. One way to do that is to see if your state party has a website and lists the county leaders there. If not call them and ask them who your leaders like county chair, precinct chair and your committeemen and committeewomen are. Ask by phone or email how best to get in touch with them and let them know you want to be more involved. Keep trying until you get an answer.

Action item #3 is to volunteer to be a precinct chair* in your area if there is not one already and make friends with the one who is if there is one. Attend the meetings and the clubs and help in any way possible. Make sure they all get flyers and information about Ron Paul at the same time. Register people to vote and make calls and mention your efforts for Ron Paul at the first opportunity.

If for some reason, your county is closed to the idea of your assistance and your efforts for Ron Paul then that is where you move into the ‘Mirroring the Republican Party’ phase. Action Item #3A is to simply organize the area for Ron Paul as a county leader and finding precinct captains and block walkers as fast as possible! When the numbers are great enough in your area, the existing Republican leadership will embrace you and say they were friends all along in most cases!

The delegate selection process will start occurring near the presidential primary vote in 2008 at various times in various states. It will start with precinct meetings, and then county meetings, and on up to state meetings. At each level, we must have enough Ron Paul people present to control the vote and determine who is elected to represent us. In some cases, there will be committees that recommend and we must impact that committee process according to the rules of our states. Action Item #4 is to plan now to attend your Republican Party Convention process at the precinct level on up to the state and national level to send as many Ron Paul delegates as possible to the National Convention. **

It is both a numbers game and a perception effort. If you knew how few Republicans are currently attending meetings of any kind, then you would think this will be easy. However, I must warn you, it will not be easy, but it is doable if you can produce more people than the other candidates at every level across the nation. The good news is that if you can do it for Ron Paul, you can do it for local sheriff. So how many of you would consider filing for office in your area – especially if there is an open seat or an opportunity to replace someone supporting illegal immigration in a county office? Action Item #5 is to recruit candidates to file for local office in your area who support the constitution and our national sovereignty. Do not attempt this until you have achieved a base of support in your area! (Filing deadlines vary(updated 6/15/12)).

*A precinct chair takes care of a geographical area representing approx 3000 voters for the party. That can include finding block walkers, hosting coffees, and serving as point of information from the party to the people in that area. It can be as much or as little as the person wants. In some states it is an elected position (on the ballot). [In Oklahoma, for example, it is typically handled at the precinct meetings if anyone shows up and/or appointed by the county chairs if it is done at all. The executive committee for the state is comprised of county chairs and state committee men and women for each county meeting approx quarterly in OKC.]

Summary of Action Items:

Action Item #1 is to find out if you are in an open state or a closed state and take appropriate action (I e if are in a closed state – register Republican to be able to vote for Ron Paul immediately!).

Action Item #2 is to embed ourselves in the Republican Party, those who have not already done so long ago.

Action item #3 is to volunteer to be a precinct chair* in your area if there is not one already and make friends with the one who is if there is one.

GOP Fight in NEVADA… McCain In TROUBLE!

Running a strident libertarian campaign in the primaries, Texas Rep. Ron Paul tapped a seam of Republican frustration across the country…Across the state, lifelong Republicans like Mr. Bent who now identify more closely with Mr. Paul’s cause than with the party establishment say they won’t vote for Sen. McCain.
