Ready for some outrage? It seems that the GOP establishment is using redistricting to take out some of the districts that elected Tea Party sponsored candidates. For more, kindly take a look at this from NewsMax:
House freshmen from several GOP-majority states are in danger of losing out in a political realignment that rewards more connected veteran representatives. It may be cold comfort to tea partyers that the hostile redistricting process proves their point: They really don’t belong to the political establishment.
“They did not have ties with incumbents and weren’t afforded a seat at the table,” said political journalist Ed Feigenbaum.
Rep. Jeffrey Landry, a tea party-backed winner last November in Louisiana, saw his seat vaporized under redistricting. Louisiana’s GOP power brokers also scattered Landry’s base of support across multiple congressional districts so that four-term Rep. Charles Boutsany can survive any potential 2012 primary challenge from Landry.
So, as you can see, the establishment (RINO) GOP is taking it’s vengeance against the Tea Party. They seek to marginalize the movement by removing it’s elected representatives via redistricting. It’s bad enough that we have to fight the left tooth and nail. Now, we have to continue fighting the GOP as well. As usual, I have some ideas.
1. RS McCain said it best when he said “Not One Red Cent,” meaning no money to the RNC. We need to get back on board with making sure that the establishment get’s put on a starvation diet. Then, as candidates emerge, I’m sure that there will be another round of “Ten Buck Fridays” to support Conservative candidates around the country.
2. All over the US, there are groups working hard to take over the GOP from the ground up. By becoming part of the GOP on the local level, you can help promote true Conservatives all the way to the state level. Once the state level is controlled by Conservatives, the National party is within our grasp. For example, in my state, efforts are being undertaken by the PA Precinct Project. If you are able, you can find related organizations in your state, and assist them.
If there any other ideas out there, kindly drop them in the comment section, and I’ll do some updates.
