There is only ONE Logical choice for Chair of the Michigan Republican Party.
There is no question that it is time for a change in the Republican Party.
We won’t sugar coat it. Bobby Schostak and the ‘elite’ within the party have produced only a fractured base over the last several years. Each time the grassroots begins to feel a part of the process, it is told to wait its turn, be pragmatic, and swallow hard with the neo-progressive efforts at reaching out to the socially and fiscally broken ideologues which normally associate with left of center political organizations. This is unacceptable.
The cronyism and political patronage that has shown itself repeatedly hardly allows any self respecting conservative Republican to make the claim that there is integrity within the party. The failure of party leadership to step up and offer guidance to an administration and legislature that has done more to advance liberal planks than the last (Democrat) administration is outrageous.
But it is not the party platform that is wrong, the party leadership has been. And now we are expected to look at the coronation of handpicked succession, and expect anything different?

Mi GOP Supports gun rights, right? Nah The death of a perception...
Many of you may be aware that I was asked to disarm nearly a year and a half ago at the Michigan GOP State Convention. Just a few weeks ago (8/23/2014) at the Michigan GOP State Convention in Novi, my dear colleague and good friend Tom Lambert (Vice-President of Michigan Open Carry, Inc) followed in my footsteps of having my rights disregarded or minimized by the GOP.

Somehow, J-man overlooked that bullet point above.
And, that‘s a fact, Jack.

Going to the county convention? Be prepared and have fun while you are at it!
A few thoughts on the county conventions being held across the state today.
- First and foremost make sure you have a good parliamentarian. This will ensure that rules (AND STATE LAW) is followed.
- Be assertive, but polite. Don’t be angry and confrontational. Remember, the real fight for your local party may be in November. If you are inclined at making a difference within the party, you will want to build trust and appear reasonable to others who you want to influence at that time.
- Be prepared to make your motions, and be prepared for motions that might be made.
- Take video if possible.
- Help friends and neighbor delegates understand the process BEFORE attending if you can. In fact, talking about it will help you advocate properly in a pinch.
KNOW THE RULES – Here are some interesting documents (Michigan statute in fact) that might help you out when the excrement hits the turbine.
I’ll let you folks figure it all out. It takes about 20 minutes to find the important parts.
If you want to get a handle, on how the county chair is going to run the convention, check this out. They have received training and should adhere to the rules set forth by the party and state law.
