They are all registered Democrats….

I was searching for someone to run in Orange County for the commission, and the proment genleman I approached said he was approached last year…and opted out.

“But the next guy that was asked ran and won.”

“But he is a Democrat??”

“ohhh his family is a long line of republicans…heck I’m a registered Democrat so I can vote in the important stuff….”….Say What?

The “next guy” voted for and supported the NEW tax we just got shoved upon us …and he is “conservative.”

This business of the old way is not working out too well. The stories of having to be a Democrat to keep your job is old school that people are just clinging onto.

There is NO solidarity if half the “Democrats” are really conservatives that live in FEAR . . If  they are JFK Zombies they need to be woken up and see who has co-opted their party and realize that progressive big government types have co-opted the Republican party as well and they need to step outside their comfort zones and act to save this county, this state and Nation.  There is no way you can start a wave/trend/movement to repel statism by hiding in fear…and doing things the way they always have been done and expecting change will result in the rise of  the progressive. We must rally together under a common banner. The strongest,closest label is the Republican brand. Any other branch party will require too much time to build and as the progressives in this county have coalesced power it is imperative that we act immediately.

My precinct is the strongest, largest REGISTERED Republican precinct in the county, and if we could get the timid conservatives to step out of the closet as well as old school democrats we might get a push back and get some change in Orange County.

The 350+ people I met at the polls that voted against the sales  tax increase were HOT. These people were fuming mad, and I seriously doubt they were the closet conservatives. YET there were only a handful that had any decal on their car signifying that they were conservative. There will never be any unity, no coalescing of like-minded people until people start identifying with one another to let them see they are not alone. The fear of  retaliation for conservative decals which is a leading reason for not displaying one must be dealt with. I know of many vandalism stories that originated in the decal but this should not be a problem for those that do not frequent Chapel Hill. What a sad commentary on Chapel Hill…..

The first step is to get registered to their principles, the next is to show solidarity on a daily basis. If that means a bumper sticker for their car…or their forehead….it needs to done. The next is to get connected via Facebook, Twitter and other internet venues were people are not isolated into the corners of the county.

This nation is going to hell in a hand basket, and if regular people cannot get fired up enough to put aside their fears of being known as a conservative, joining ranks, and championing the principals that built this nation, then they need to get that second-term Obama decal at minimum and affix it to their forehead.

That “other guy” the conservative? is  Earl McKee… a registered Democrat. He needs an Obama sign in his yard, OR get his act together, switch parties, and live by the principles he supposedly harbors.

Update: I found someone to run for District 2. That would be me.
