"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Robbing Peter To Pay Paul – Quite Literally

The estimated cost to be a National Delegate or Alternate is $3000 to $5000 to cover entrance fees, travel, and lodging. Some of us wondered how some people were going to be able to afford it. In 2008, it was easy to go as RNC was here in St. Paul. In 2012, its in Tampa. I actually kinda want to be a Delegate. I decided against running from the 6th, cause a henchman for the Pal campaign said it would go a long way towards showing we wanted to be fair. Obviously, they were in full on spin and mislead mode as their plans had been laid out well in advance.

Except for one thing. These are the same people who complain that there are fees to cover conventions in the MNGOP. How in the world were they going to pay for it? Well, it looks like we may have discovered how some of the Ron Paul Delegates planned to pay for their trips.

Dear Friends,

You will never guess what the RP takeover group is doing now!  Many of these individuals have been elected to BPOU and CD leadership positions.  In some cases, entire Executive Committees are now run by RP takeover teams.  While not all are hostile or bad, some of them are already causing concern.  

For example, I understand that some of the new RP BPOU/CD leaders have met and are making plans for the money raised at recent conventions. For example:

• Use $10,000 as scholarships for RP National Delegates

• Refusal to give any of the money to an endorsed candidate who doesn’t meet the RP group’s standards of “liberty” and “principles”

• Use the money to train “liberty” candidate campaign managers

I think it goes without saying that we should all be aware of who is running our BPOUs and CDs.  Go to your BPOU and CD meetings.  Pay attention to what your Executives are doing as a GOP organization and with the money it has raised.

 If you are unsure where your leadership stands, please consider donating your hard-earned dollars and time directly to candidates and the State Party.  After all, our reason for the GOP statewide structure is to elect our MN Republicancandidates.

All my best,

Cindy Westrup
