Liberty movement activists take over GOP in Nevada

logo

Last Saturday I was invited as a guest on Fox News with Brian Wilson to discuss some of the 2010 efforts within the movement. I cited an event where movement activists had taken over the GOP in Clark County (Las Vegas) Nevada.

You can watch the Fox News Segment below.

Since the segment aired, I’ve received countless emails asking about the Nevada incident. This is an interesting story considering the large amount of attention my poll got on our website about a week ago. The poll I posted, which asked about the method the movement should rally behind to achieve mass success in 2010, had more than 10,000 visits, 4,300 votes and 400 or so comments.

The following is where the results stand as of the time of this post:

Where do you think the movement should go in 2010?
-The movement needs to take over the GOP 51% (2,228 votes)
-Third party… it’s time for the two parties to be taken down 21% (902 votes)
-Third party ONLY if/when it is clearly viable 14% (623 votes)
-I think we need to avoid third parties at all costs 11% (478 votes)
-The movement needs to take over the Democrats 4% (162 votes)

I know… the poll is kind of silly in a way. But it also helps lead me to some of the next few posts I’ll be publishing. Please understand that these posts are only in place to get us, as a movement, pondering strategy for 2010 and beyond.

Many have said it’s silly to consider taking over the GOP. Many have tried and failed (including me) and many of us know that in the past the effort resulted in wasted time and money.

But that was then, this is now.

Meet the National Precinct Alliance.

Seem silly? Seem like a wast of time?

Think again.

Great News!!!

Nevada just had it’s elections for GOP Leadership. As a PC, It was my duty and great pleasure to drive 5 hours from Las Vegas to Hawthorn Nevada, along with our other delegates, to Represent Clark County. Our approved slate of candidates swept the elections and we now control the entire State. No RINO was left standing. Everyone of them has been moved out of our way. Every change to the State Party bylaws we didn’t approve of was voted down. It was a complete and total VICTORY for the grassroots conservatives in Nevada.

Now keep in mind that our little plan Plan to take over the GOP and our PC program was started by about 30 members about 6 months ago. Who was saying this will take a long time? Who was thinking this would be to ambitious, impossible and that the powers that be would never allow this to happen? We have proven every critic WRONG. This can be done! We did it! You and your County and State can do it too.

First, do your part by becoming active within the Patriotic Resistance. Contact the others in your State Group and tell them about what we have accomplished in Nevada. Join forces with your other local grassroots conservative groups and attend the GOP meetings. Set your sights high! The County GOP is your first target but keep in mind the objective is to take control of the entire State. Hold joint meetings with your coalition of conservative groups and choose your leaders from your own ranks or those that you approve of. It is just that simple.

We banded together with members of the other like minded groups, invaded and took control of the Clark County GOP. We then spread the message to our other members in the State who used Clark County as the model. Here it is by the numbers. Last May, the Clark County “RINO” Central Committee had 300 members and only about 1/2 of them were active. As of yesterday, it is 600 active members strong and the vast majority are are like minded grassroots conservatives who vote. Our movement took the County by surprise and then the State by force of numbers.

To me, it is no longer a question of, “can this work?” It is a question of when the rest of the Patriots in our Country put forth the small amount of effort required to do the same thing.

I checked in to this and I found it to be 100% accurate. This movement in Nevada has indeed caused a significant shift in the party structure across the state. In fact, just last week there was a major shakeup in leadership within the Clark Country GOP of Las Vegas.

It has been confirmed that the following previous officials within the party resigned at an emergency meeting.

-Heather Kydd, secretary
-Martha Kimpel, executive board member District F
-Christine DeCorte, finance director
-Swadeep Nigam, treasurer
-Ron Futrell, communications director
-Richard Scotti, chairman
-Melody Howard, executive board member District C
-Norm Yeager, executive board member District A

Some of these individuals give multiple reasons for stepping down, but a very good source of mine tells me that most of it took place over frustration with movement activists controlling the votes to the point that the old establishment couldn’t continue on its current path.

This is a profound shift in what is happening within the party, and makes it clear that if the movement really, REALLY wanted to put the party back in the hands of true fiscal conservatives… it’s entirely possible to make it happen.

What say you?

    The reason that I see that could justify a third party is understanding that both the Dems and Repubs have been completely controlled for some time by the world bankers. Reagan overwhelmed them due to his tremendous appeal to the average citizen. Of course the WB/Fed Reserve etc made sure they had people on the ticket who could try to influence him and be elected as the next Pres. to undue some of what he (Reagan might accomplish) I am referring to G. Bush senior. Reagan accepted him as a running mate because of pressure for the Rep. Party–Meaning the world bankers. Were they successful? You bet. They have all the money in the world and have bought 99% of the pols.,judiciary etc. A third party might be the only way and don’t dismiss Edwin Tabors comments (above). 75% of the population consider themselves Christians as did our founding fathers. A Republic cannot servive without Christian priciples. I think a third party with a strong leader that isn’t afraid to espouse those principles would be an excellent idea. What do you think is Palin’s greatest attraction. Some might say “she is very attractive”. I would say it’s the otherway around. She is attractive because of her Christian principles.
    What was Reagans great appeal? Same thing. Just some thoughts. Go Nevada!!!

    The GOP is a member of the International Democrat Union. (www.IDU.org) The IDU is comprised of 80 “right of center” political parties from around the world.The purpose of the IDU is to seek the global adoption of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. American adoption of the Universal Declaration would negate the Declaration of Independence. What is the GOP doing? Good luck to Nevadan Republicans in getting the party to withdraw from the IDU.

    The GOP leads the International Democrat Union (www.IDU.org). The IDU is comprised of 80 “right of center” political parties from around the world. The IDU calls for the global adoption of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. What is the GOP doing? Good luck Nevada in redirecting the party. You can start with a demand the party withdraw from the IDU!

  6. [...] see how much TP members can accomplish, read how they took over the Republican Party in Nevada. For other insights about making TPs meaningfully productive, see this American Liberty Alliance [...]

    From now on, let’s refer to our country as a “Republic” as it is stated in our founding documents and written by our founding fathers. They wrote extensively about the evils of Democracy, which is why they created our country as a Republic. So let’s take an important step from now on, refer to our country as a Republic and correct anyone who refers to us as a Democracy.

    I have been a supporter and participant of our local Tea Party from day one. This movement is one of the greatest blessings of 2009. With that being said, please lets not lose sight of what the fundamental goals of the Tea Party Movement as I see it was founded on.

    1) Grass roots, non-partisan.
    2) Anti-Socialist-support Capitalism.
    3) Inform the Uninformed and Misinformed.
    4) Organize Rallies-Allowing Conservative voices to be heard.
    5) Support Principles, not a Political Party nor create a new Third Party!!!
    6) Not about Social issues!

    Many American are Conservatives, but they Don’t know it. They are ignorant, misinformed and uninformed, largely due to modes of media they derive their information they base their opinion and voting decisions. Many are Registered Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and Independents.

    Yes, there will a always be hard core Liberals, but the majority who are informed and understand both sides, not just one side of the picture will lean to the Right, most of the time.

    The Republican Party needs to move from the center to the right. Lets fix the problem by holding them accountable, to abolishing it and creating a third or independent party is not the answer.

    Does anyone remember Ross Perot? He is a big reason why Bill Clinton won! What would have happened if Hillary Clinton decided not to support her Party and Obama and ran as an Independent or on the Green Party ticket?

    Lets not cut of our nose to spite our face!

    I have lived in Las Vegas for over 40 yrs. It is time for a change. Sen Reid, Shelly Berkley and others need to go. This is the year for great change.

    Don’t let the left discourage you. They will try to convince people it is hopeless, change never really happens and one person can’t make a difference. YOU CAN!

    I am a disabled senior and these changes to the healthcare system (if they get through) will impact me personally. I will do everything in my power to spread the word about the social engineering the Democrats are trying to do and help to elect true conservatives. People that believe in freedom of choice, the Constitution and GOD. I’m tired of being “politically correct”. NO MORE!

    A contract by candidates, both new and existing, to limit their terms to two would be a step in the right direction. Also, to control the senate, we need a major voter turnout in many states to overcome the welfare effect by Accorn, union and other democrat allies.

    I recommend reading George Washington’s Farewell Address where he advised against political parties.
    Here in upstate New York we saw strategic voter registration where liberal democrats have apparently been registering as republicans for some time.
    This will happen in your Tea Party. Do not set yourself up for this treachery.
    Capture the spirit of the people. Lay a foundation of mutual love and respect that will shape their moral and ethical character. They will then be able to communicate on a spiritual level that will permit them to recognize righteous candidates on the basis of their spirit rather than their rhetoric. If there are good candidates in the Tea Party movement they can run as independents.
    I know this sounds “hokey” but I have watched the political process for many years and offer this as wisdom. If you want to win liberty this is the path. If you want to win elections then count me out.

    The GOP is asleep at the wheel. It is time to take this party back to it’s roots. Over the years, the GOP has morphed into a party that is a mirror image of the Democrat Party. Enough is enough. The leadership of the RNC is a joke and totally out of touch. Time to get back to our conservative roots! This is only the beginning.
