Want To Go On A RINO Hunt?

November 8, 2009

Rhino2

Few in the Tea Party effort are as protective as I am toward the movement. Republicans are trying like hell to hi jack the movement to serve their interests. Many of us, myself included, are angry at the Republicans as well as the Democrats, after all the Republicans were supposed to be conservative. They have truly betrayed the country.

Unfortunately, we are a two party state. We can not start a new party, it is too hard to get one on the ballot due to ballot restrictions. But there is one thing that we can do, help kick the stuffing out of the RINO Republicans and regain control of the party.

Everyone knows what a RINO is, Republican In Name Only. The Republican establishment backs these liberal Republicans in races in a mistaken belief that only a liberal Republican can win. Right now there is about one third “establishment” RINO Republicans, one third truly conservative Republicans, and the other third are clueless or waiting for a winner to pop their head up.

The goal is to get Tea Party volunteers to rejoin the Republican party, volunteer to be a precinct official, and start gaining control of the Republican party from the precinct level up. They have many, many, vacant precinct positions waiting for people to fill them. Once you are in, you go to about four meetings in a years time, then you are eligible to vote in their internal elections. If we can get a few thousand conservative Tea Party volunteers to do this, we can put the conservative Republicans back in control of the party. Once in, RINOs will not be endorsed, instead the Republican party can declare these RINOs to be acting against Republican values. We can also set the agenda and planks for the party, redefine what it is to be a Republican.
And you know what? A good public a** whipping is just what the RINOs need right now.

So folks, we are going RINO hunting. We need as many people as possible to attend the activist training classes that we are beginning to set up. The first is on the 14th, in Tulsa Oklahoma, the second will be here in OKC. Eventually we will begin holding classes across the state as we line up activist trainers and obtain meeting space.

The establishment RINOs are already on to us, they denied the use of the Republican Party offices for our first training seminar in Tulsa, not a problem, we will rent something. Make no bones about this, it will NOT be the Republicans taking over the Tea Party, it will be the Tea Party taking over the Republican party. There will be no more voting Republican as the lesser of evils, the Republicans will run good, decent, conservative candidates or we will defeat them at the polls like the Tea Party people did in New York state district 23 a few days ago.

Statewide Patriot Groups Linking Up

October 11, 2009

The first meeting of the Oklahoma patriot groups was held on October 10th at The Carpenter Shop, 358 North Rockwell Ave. Around 30 to 40 attendees representing 15 to 16 different groups attended with plenty of common ground found for cooperation and joint projects.

The following groups sent representatives or had members present that were going to report back to their groups:

South-Tulsa-912-Project
John Birch Society Oklahoma Section Leaders
Okfortea
Fair Tax
Gooh
OCPAC
Lincoln County 912 Project
Oklahoma chapter of Americans For Prosperity
A couple of people forming a new group in Skiatook
OKC 912 Project had several of their working groups represented
Right Wing Extremist Mob
Liberty Business Network
OKSAFE
Team Sara
Shawnee/Tecumseh 912 Project
Tulsa 912 Project
Tulsa Tea Party
Remember The Bailout

Considering that we were butting heads with the liberty summit in IL this weekend, we had a great turnout. An email group was formed and committees will form on the different projects and topics discussed.

This was a historic occasion for the Oklahoma Tea Party movement. There have been limited government groups and societies operating in Oklahoma for decades but this is the first time that a massive grassroots movement has linked up with experienced organizations. With out numbers and their experience we can make the changes needed to make Oklahoma a bastion of personal freedom and prosperity.

Get ready fellow Oklahomans, the calvary is forming up, and we are it!

First Sooner Tea Party General Membership Meeting October 11th

October 7, 2009

The Sooner Tea Party will have its first open meeting for the general public on October 11th, at 3:00 pm.

Due to the short notice, the meeting will be held at my shop, The Carpenter Shop, 358 North Rockwell Ave, Oklahoma City, OK, 73127. When you get to that address, drive behind the smaller green metal buildings to where the large concrete buildings are, the ones with the truck docks running across the front. If you get lost in the parking lot, call 405-412-6233 for assistance.

We will go over what we have been doing since we organized, the July 4th Tea party, the August 22nd Health Care Rally, the March on D.C., and upcoming events and projects. The Legislature will restart early next year, and we all need to be ready to help push through the needed legislation to make Oklahoma a bastion of freedom and prosperity.

We are also hosting a statewide meeting for leaders of the other patriot groups on the 10th. It is time that all the groups started working to push through needed projects and began to share information and resources. We will have a report on the progress for the Sunday meeting.

So we would love to see you at the Sunday meeting, share some information with you and get you active in our group if you have the time to participate. Don’t expect a lot at this first meeting, we just want to say hi and tell you about what is going on. Bring a folding chair if you have one, or a lawn chair. If the weather is pretty, we will meet outside, or inside if the weather isn’t cooperating.

See you there,

Al Gerhart

Taking Back The Oklahoma Republican Party

October 4, 2009

In 1964 Barry Goldwater started a movement to return the Republican party to its roots, paving the way for the Regan revolution in 1980.

Unfortunately, George Herbert Walker Bush squandered the momentum, as did Newt Gingrich when he failed to follow up on the Contract With America.

Currently the Republican party is being controlled by liberal Republicans and that must be changed. Here in Oklahoma, starting a third party is nearly impossible ballot restrictions. Therefore, we have three choices, reform the Republican party, reform the Democratic party, or ram through ballot laws that open up Oklahoma to a viable third party.

The Democratic party is most likely too far away from us in political theory and practice and changing ballot laws is a task for a well developed political machine. That leaves us with reforming the Republican party out of necessity.

The idea of re taking the Republican party is spreading. At this website, they discuss exactly what can be gained, how precarious the establishments hold on power truly is and what it takes to get there.

Re Taking The Republican Party

We are lucky to be living in Oklahoma, the reddest of the red states, but we need to improve upon our position by helping conservative Republicans to take control of their party. This will require us to register as Republicans, then spend a few hours for a few days attending Republican precinct events.

What is to be gained is largely symbolic yet there are practical gains, the power to endorse Republican candidates, the power to educate future and present Republican party members, and most importantly, a very public bloody nose to the present Republican party leadership.

We have attended tea parties and made it clear that we have had enough, it is time to show the public that we intend to act on this. On the 10th of October, the Sooner Tea Party is hosting a statewide meeting of patriot and libertarian groups to begin to work together on projects.

One of the projects to be discussed is retaking the Republican party.  Janruary 27th is the date of the first Republican precinct election, if you miss that election, you won’t likely be able to vote in the next ones.  Some counties might have different dates for the initial precinct election so the first thing is to locate your county chairman and get in touch with your precinct captain to get the latest information.
