Time to take back our government


Are you as frustrated with party politics in South Carolina as I am?

Would you like to be able to do something about it?

Are you interested in who gets nominated as a presidential candidate?

Did you know that in order to be a delegate or to vote for a delegate to the nominating national convention in 2012, you must sign up to be a delegate to your county convention this March?

Now is your chance to be involved!

The good thing is that it is really simple!  In March, all you need to do is show up!

If you want to be on your county executive committee, the decision making body for your county party, then all you need to do is bring a couple of friends with you in March and have them vote for you.  95% of the time that is all it takes.

You see, every two years the political parties in South Carolina are required to reorganize from the ground up.  The only requirement to participate is that you be a registered voter.

The thing that most folks don’t know is that very few people show up for reorganization.  Many precincts have no one show up.  They are wide open!

The good thing about this is that activists like us can show up with a few friends and outnumber the establishment types.

We can have the majority and become part of the leadership of the party simply by showing up!

Activists like you from all over South Carolina are learning that we can make our influence felt.  We can control the way the Republican Party does its business.  I expect we will have a controlling majority in many counties this time!

It is simple, and it is fun!  And best of all, it puts you in a leadership position in the party.

The details for each county are being gathered to a central website.  Check the SCGOP website, and if the info you need is not there, you can check www.Conservative.sc/GOP to see what is going on in your county.  Check back often, because information is being added as soon as it is available.

So, contact your county chairman and other activists in your county and get involved.  If you have any questions, you can contact me at talbert@talbertblack.com.  Please use the subject line “GOP Reorg.”

Here is a short, 4-minute video with a quick explanation of how it works.  Thanks to video genius Dave Wilson for putting this video together!  Enjoy!

For those who prefer a print explanation, here is a summary of what happens over the next three months:
