All Politics is Local – Get to Know Your Neighbors!

Ok folks, we’ve had a great few months of high profile events and lots of tea parties at state capitols (rah rah), and groups organizing groups, and folks trying to play king of the mountain.

Well – now it is time for the rubber to meet the road, the boots on the ground to step into action as it were; yes time for real people to do the real work that gets the best candidates elected and works to restore the republic.

So, time to talk to your neighbors and engage with people you can look in the eye and relate to.  There are many ways to do this, but I am going to do a series of stories here on what I am doing and how I am doing it and some personal stories about what comes out of doing so.  I am hoping that you will find a way to replicate it in your area to the extent your time and energy permits.

I am the Republican Party Precinct Chairman in my neighborhood and  I have access to walk lists for it.  Some people only go door to door for Republicans in primary season, but I use it as an opportunity to meet all my neighbors!  I want to reach out to all the folks and find out which ones are conservative, independent, constitutional, liberty lovers and invite them to be a part of the GOP.

Now if you are saying “whoa there”, I am not so happy with the R’s right now, you are not alone!  But that might be because you have not been faithfully showing up and working to make the R’s be who they say they are.  I have and will continue to do so and progress is being made, even if slowly.  You know it is all about who shows up and knows the rules and has the most people there!

So let’s do this together and share stories about how it goes!  Here’s what you need to do:

1)  Call your GOP headquarters and ask who your precinct chair is. Contact that chair and offer to help walk the neighborhood. If they don’t have a precinct chair, then volunteer and ask for a walk list.

2)  Visit with your favorite candidates in the area and ask them for their best door to door flyer and tell them the quantity you can pass out door to door for them.

3)  Get a supply of voter registration cards to have with you and give out as you deem appropriate.  Clearly our goal is not to register Democrats – duh!

4)  Have some personal cards printed with your contact information on it that you wish to share with your neighbors.

5)  Have a clipboard for the walk lists and some lined paper to take notes.  Find out what your neighbors need and are concerned about.  Make notes if you promise to get back to them and be sure you do.  Update incorrect information on the walk lists.  Make notes of prayer requests that are sharable and needs that are sharable and look for ways to solve problems as you go.

6)  Determine when would be the best time of day to do this in your neighborhood and what fits with your schedule and do a few houses a day until you complete the job.  Look for others who want to help and teach them how to do what you are doing.  Find out what blocks they want to walk and make notes and check back with them to see if it has been done!

Some may be skeptical as to the effectiveness of this approach, perhaps. If the articulation above does not convince you as to the necessity of door to door / one on one interaction, then perhaps a video made by progressive Democrats about their efforts might….

Based on trends in recent elections, the Democratic party seems to have the “localism” and shoe leather necessities figured out. Time to catch up!

Have fun getting to know your neighbors and sharing about the great candidates in the mix in 2010.  We are preparing to take back the House and restore State Sovereignty too!  For a really terrific overview of State Sovereignty and why the best decisions are made locally please take a look at Julius Goertzen’s recent testimony in Nebraska here.

Charles Key to Host Randy Brogdon Meet and Greet THIS Thursday in OKC

Likely the two men most respected by liberty-lovers in Oklahoma are Representative Charles Key and Senator Randy Brogdon. This pair of Constitutionalists have worked together in their respective sides of the legislature to strengthen Oklahoma’s Tenth Amendment sovereignty and to protect citizens from government violations of privacy.

Sooner Republican Assembly – 2010 Endorsements

Report from Saturday, June 26, 2010 – thanks Jared!

The Sooner Republican Assembly (SRA) held its 2010 Endorsing Convention this morning. Twenty-one statewide and local candidates recieved the endorsement of the SRA, which required them to earn 2/3 of the delegates’ votes. Detailed information on the votes is available here. Those winning endorsements are listed below.

* Tom Coburn for US Senate
* R.J. Harris for US House, 4th District
* Kevin Calvey for US House, 5th District
* Randy Brogdon for Governor
* Paul F. Nosak for Lieutenant Governor
* Scott Pruitt for Attorney General
* Owen Laughlin for State Treasurer
* Janet Barresi for State Superintendent of Public Instruction
* Mark Costello for Commissioner of Labor
* John Doak for Insurance Commissioner
* Anthony Sykes for the State Senate
* Norm Seaberg, Kent Hunt, Scott Martin, Randy Terrill, Sally Kern, Charles Key, Mike Reynolds, and Mike Christian for the State House
* David Tinsley for Cleveland County Assessor
* Jim Reynolds for Cleveland County Treasurer

In addition, the SRA delegates endorsed State Questions 746, 747, 748, 750, 751, 752, and 754. They voted against Questions 744 and 757.

Two resolutions were proposed, both of which passed unanimously. The first condemned the recent decision to ban 4th District Congressional candidate R.J. Harris from future Cleveland County Republican Party events. The second was a motion of no confidence in the county’s GOP chair and vice chair.

Winning 100% of the vote were candidate Anthony Sykes; State Questions 746, 750, 751; and the resolutions. Four other candidates earned over 93% of the vote: Randy Brogdon, Owen Laughlin, Janet Barresi, and Mark Costello.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day was the race for Lieutenant Governor. The field of five includes two state legislators and the 2006 GOP State Superintendent nominee. Yet the endorsement was won by Owasso businessman and political newcomer Paul F. Nosak, who reached the required 2/3 supermajority in the third round of voting. He would eventually receive 75% of the votes.


The full delegate counts for all races considered can be read on our endorsements page.
