The Battle Plan,....
Received from an e-mail from Moshe of the Young Republican Network:
This Tuesday marks a moment in history. A time where America is exposed to blatant socialist thinking; yes this is worse than the subversive behavior of the recent Republican Party.
I don't need to harp on this, we're going to get plenty of emails detailing the end of the world, etc. I care more about action than talking. I am, in essence, an activist. ;)
WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, HERE'S THE 5 POINT PLAN!
#1 - CONNECT WITH OTHER ACTIVISTS in your area and state. I'm NOT talking about "cocktail Republicans", "Happy Hour Only" YR's, or people who complain all the time. I'm talking about people who understand what it takes to get something done and can move through a thankless job without injury.
#2 - STOP GIVING LIBERALS MONEY in an effort to promote the Republican and Conservative cause! This drives me crazy. Connect with Republicans on Republican platforms. So far I know of several new party movements, including RebuildTheParty and TeamSarah, that are supporting pornography, Democratic fundraising, and liberal platforms - none intentionally. OK, I'll consider #2 TMI at this point but we REALLY need to start understanding what we're doing or things are not going to get better. (Don't feed the gorilla that you're about to fight!)
#3 - WORK TOGETHER! You are not going to create the next MoveOn.org, ever. So get over it. MoveOn.org was NOT grassroots. It was the political arm of George Soros to undermine President Bush. It's popularity came after Soros pumped millions into it. You will not be able to do the same thing without millions of dollars in funding. Where does that leave us? The same place we started... smarter, more motivated, and better connected than the Democrats. We just need to start working together... try these words, HELPING each other in our various projects.
#4 - PLAN, GROW, BUILD! What are your plans in these next 2 years? What are the plans of your local Republican Party? What about candidates? Who's running for office in your area? What can you do to make a race more competitive in this and future races? There's a quote out there that states, "If you fail to plan then you plan to fail."
#5 - Read 1 through 4 again, think about why I'm saying these things, and think about what you can do to "Change the Game"
