Monroe County GOP Violates State Party Rules “In Call to Convention Letter to Delegates”
After receiving and reviewing my call to convention letter as a delegate from the Monroe County Republican Party I couldn’t believe what I was reading see “paragraph 4” in the “Monroe GOP Call to Convention” letter at the end of the article! See below Under Rule 5 County Convention Delegates
Section (D). No Restriction on Qualification of Delegates
The individuals who can attend and participate in the February 7, 2013 county conventions are referenced in these Rules.
The county convention may not adopt or enforce any restriction on the qualification of the delegates who can attend and participate in the February 7, 2013 county conventions, including but not limited to, the requirement that a county convention delegate must be a dues-paying member or a contributor to the county party in question.
This isn’t the first time this so-called Republican Party has violated state party rules! This has been a common occurrence within this local “club” (click) since at least the 2008 county convention where over 50 precinct delegates not only left the convention but the Republican Party as well and they won’t be back!
In the 2012 primary election cycle members of the executive committee along with their state committeeman violated state party rules by supporting a challenger to a sitting Conservative Republican County Commissioner. Read letter here: Monroe GOP Call to Convention
Oh the webs they weave! It has become clear that the power brokers of the MIGOP has put a plan in place as to marginalize those True Conservative Patriots of Freedom and Liberty who would speak out against them and their plan. A Democrat tactic!
It would appear that the “sheeple” members of the Party, along with some activist/grassroots and aledged Tea Party faithful, are falling in line with this plan along with some of our elected Conservative officials. The recent endorsements of current MIGOP chairman Bobby Schostak by Gov. Snyder and Lt. Gov. Calley were expected but not some of those within the Conservative ranks.
How in good conscience could State Representative Mike Shirkey (R) – Clarklake and State Senator Patrick Colbeck (R) – Canton come out and endorse Mr. Schostak? These were two that I “respected” and thought were true representatives of We the People. They were instrumental in the legislation and passage of Freedom to Work in Michigan.
This begs some questions; Were they bought off with Schostak money? Were they promised leadership roles within their respective chambers? While I don’t know the answers to these questions with their endorsements it has to be asked, doesn’t it?
We have already seen certain so-called Conservatives who have admitted taking money from Mr. Schostak to make post on facebook advocating his re-election as State Party Chairman. It’s said that money can’t buy you love and admiration and it surely can’t buy you principles and integrity!
It’s also said that money is the root of all evil yet many are willing to forsake this for personal gain. What should be important is our state and country not party partisan politics for the elitist establishment power brokers. Political interest should never be separated from moral right.
