Samuel Adams

American Patriot & Politician

1722 - 1803

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

If It's Not Broke

There is a saying, "If it's not broke, don't fix it".

A Good addition would be, "But if you just HAVE to fix it, try not to completely destroy it" 

Back in March the Central Committee was told that we HAD to completely redo EVERYTHING

All the previous  organization that  was the work of years must be cast aside and we had to reorganize.

We were told that Robert's Rules of Order REQUIRED it.

That ALL motions made prior to the Officer's Election were voided by that. 

Not true,

Our Webmaster James Knox asked the Online Discussion Board that very question and was told 


They even told him the basis for that answer could be found on page 111 of the Newly Revised Robert's Rules of Order 11th Edition in the footnote at the bottom of the page, 

As I recall that claim was made by the Chair again in the May Meeting and a Member tried to enter that passage into the Record but was declared

Out of Order by the Chair

Who STATED that that section would be.  "Taken under advisement by the Executive Commitee and they would DELIBERATE on it"

Notice Cindy Golding did NOT say that the Body would be informed of the result of their deliberations

And so far that indeed has not happened,

We were also informed that they had sought Parliamentary adivice from 3 persons including Mr David Chung who is acknowledged as one of the leading GOP experts in the field

However they did NOT mention what that advice WAS.

My information is that from Mr Chung it was the SAME as the Robert's Rules of Order Discussion Board. 


So all the Sub Commitees were Deep Sixed and replaced with Teams who only had 5 voting members. disenfranchising any othe Committee Person who might be on the Team mostly chosen by the Executive Committee.

One of the Sub Committees replaced was the Communications Sub Commitee

Which had met mostly at the Starlite on Saturday nights for years

Usually 10 up 15 attending. Our Co -Chair attended the Last as it turns out meeting so he can verify that

I understand that the Team which replaced it has met 3 times since March?

And the last time the only voting member was the Team Leader and there were 3 other people there,

His Son and two people who were on the Old Communications Sub Committee

It would appear that the improvement and reorganization has for all intents and purposes completely destroyed any functioning Communication organization.

The odd thing is that those who formed the Old Sub Committee got in the habit of fellowshiping on Saturday  Nights so they still meet

And the attendence of that no longer official group is 3 to 4 times that of the new Team

One of them told me that he used to be on 3 Sub-Committees and thought he was contributing

But now he is not on any Team and sees no reason to be on one

Because he would have NO Say in it in any event

I for the life of me do not understand how the Executives hope to acheive their goal of


Involve and re-engage disenfranchised Republicans
