It is Time to Rethink GOP Organization
After numerous conservative Precinct Chairs were taken out, County GOP organizations sink further into turmoil
The dumpster fire goes statewide. The May 24th elections have major consequences most are unaware of. To start positively, the Bush dynasty officially ended, with George Pee Bush losing to Ken Paxton in a landslide.
While not a total blow to the establishment, this is encouraging and shows the Overton Window shifting away from left-leaning centrists like Bush.
However, the good news ends there. While many focused on the Attorney General’s race, Precinct Chair seats across Texas were contested at an unprecedented scale. While a majority were unsuccessful attempts, a substantial amount of good conservatives were purged by Gay Old Party politburo.
Among them was former Denton GOP Precinct Chairman (and soon-to-be founder of Lake Cities Conservatives) Nick Augustine, who lost by only nine votes after his establishment opponent launched (or at least greenlighted) a successful slander campaign.
As hinted earlier, Augustine was nowhere near the only casualty. In our last Precinct Chair article alone, we received (currently) sixteen comments from Tarrant, to Titus, to Williamson, to Galveston counties regarding grassroots allies targeted by old guard sycophants. Worse yet, Augustine’s precinct had among the top ten highest GOP primary turnouts (a good indicator of how engaged local Republicans are) in the county, so the establishment will risk Texas going blue if it means soothing their hormone issues.
Overall, one thing seems certain across Texas: County GOPs are incapable of running themselves, at least without devolving into stagnant Karens and boomers only clubs. It is obvious they are more interested in squashing actual conservatives than defeating Democrats; if they treated the latter similarly, Texas would be redder than Oklahoma.
Unless you want your local GOP’s descent into Karenocracy (like Denton), a reprobate’s piggy bank (like Kaufman), or a glorified nursing home (like Tarrant), you probably believe there is a better way to run the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) and finally institute measures holding rogue County Chairs accountable. You are also likely unsure of what an improved RPT system might look like.
Before we propose anything, let us get something across: do not count on the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC), which is sadly dominated by egomaniacs interested in paper worship, and hearing themselves talk. Besides, as long as members like Rhonda “legalize voter fraud” Anderson hold power, nothing positive will get done.
While we unveiled our efficient, reason-based model in the past, the RPT needs it now more than ever. In light of useless bureaucracies, and local leaders purging actual conservatives, the Party Chair must bring order and halt the RPT’s self-immolation. Besides, RPT Chair Matt Rinaldi is among the ever fewer sane people in powerful positions and might be our last hope if he acts immediately.
In a more orderly RPT, County Chairs would be appointed by the Party Chair and Vice-Chair, ensuring a competent party at both state and local levels that does not backstab their base and become a drama-engulfed madhouse. If this plan were implemented, the RPT should enjoy unprecedented independence from Abbott and Austin’s decrepit suits, owned only by their devout voters and free to pursue policy priorities. Possibly, Rinaldi could become the most influential leader in Texas.
Who would oppose this? Only paper worshippers (“muh process and rulez” > enacting conservative policies), and those gaining from local cabals preferring ego-strokes to conservative votes. Instead of priming intelligent, ideologically correct Rightists to crush the Left, establishment janissaries gatekeep uncompromised conservatives and work with Democrats provided they can keep playing Tardmany Hall politics.
Besides, most voters do not know what a Precinct Chair, let alone a County Chair is, and some think primaries split the vote. Those favoring continued decentralization, the flat earthers of political science, claim there’s nothing wrong with our current system despite Texas having open primaries (meaning Democrats can influence Republican races), and people voting for whoever screams “Reagan is God” most. With Democrats and numbskulls (who likely think chocolate milk comes from brown cows) impacting GOP elections, the establishment retains power.
Also, with an increasingly psychotic Left and more cowardly “Republican” leaders, the GOP needs leadership uninfluenced by fake polls and shrill compromisers. Many automatically oppose this plan because it is supposedly “illegal” for a party to decide its own governance or something; the same people claiming unlawful tech monopolies are “private and can do what they want.” They were fine with VERY illegal:
Border horde invasions
Child genital mutilation
Insurrectionary CRT in schools
Pedophile story hour/Child grooming
Affirmative Action (anti-white discrimination)
Mail-in ballot stuffing
Flu lockdown power grabs
With the RPT Convention approaching in June, there is hope. May is not even over, and we already have two amazing candidates for Vice-Chair: Dana Myers and Alma Perez Jackson (hopefully vote splitting is prevented).
If actual conservatives plan correctly and undermine the establishment, a greater RPT is achievable. When a superior order is established, the Texas GOP will remain in grassroots control for decades to come, County Executive Committee (CEC) meetings will be sane, and most importantly conservative priorities will be furthered in every way possible. If demented curmudgeons and petty harpies want to continue power tripping and screech over menial objections, they can go to an HOA meeting.
Hopefully, stories like Augustine’s will be history, and we will advance to a future where “punching right” is unheard of, and county corruption is abolished. When an efficient, pro-grassroots apparatus is enthroned and conservatism is supreme, we can truly say “Never Again” to the events of May 24th. It is centralization or extinction; all power to the Chair!
