As I am sure everyone knows, the political season is really heating up. That said, I have become convinced that we (and by “we,” I mean true pro-life, pro-family, limited government, pro-Constitution, Christian conservatives) must get involved in the political process.
A big part of the process goes on behind the scenes in the local political party meetings and conventions. Enormously important issues are decided in these meetings and conventions, and I am getting involved and I would encourage everyone else to consider getting involved as well. If we don’t, I fear that America is going to go the way of Europe. We have already gone way too far down this path, and the only hope is for large numbers of people to get active in the process at all levels. Voting, yes, of course, everyone should vote, but involvement beyond just showing up and voting is what is needed.
If you are interested in doing that, here are some ways to get active. First, you should attend your local Republican Party mass meetings. At these mass meetings, delegates to the 6th Congressional District Convention and State Convention are elected, often new party leadership is elected, candidates for various offices are nominated, etc. Here is a list of some upcoming meetings:
Campbell County: April 8, 2012, at 7:00 p.m., at the Board of Supervisors Room, Haberer Building, Courthouse Square, Rustburg, Virginia. (http://campbellcountyrepublicans.com/)
