Take back our state by taking back our party

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.

My able colleagues at True North have posted an excellent new 2010 Precinct Caucus guide. It includes a primer on Minnesota's precinct caucus system, definitions of terms, and an inspirational call-to-action by former Republican local party officer Andy Aplikowski.

"The beauty is that in Minnesota with our Precinct Caucus system, those who show up, actually do run the party," says Aplikowski. "We can take the party back and use it to return America to its freedom based roots, but - and this is important - we can't have a conservative and liberty based Republican Party if there is a minority of conservatives and those with libertarian leanings who show up to endorse candidates and become Delegates."

Mark your calendar now on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, at 7:00 pm, and show up informed and ready to roll at this very real and practical exercise in self-government. Your commitment at this lowest level in the party process will have an impact all the way up to the candidate endorsements, and help determine where the heart and soul of the party will be for 2010 and beyond.
