Precinct Organizing: Changing the Course of the American Ship-of-State

When a huge oceanliner is off-course and needs to turn and go in the opposite direction, it takes many miles to make the adjustment.  America is totally off-course right now and needs to make a dramatic change.  Like the turning of a large ocean vessel, the change in direction cannot be accomplished immediately.  We must initiate the process, but it takes time to turn the ship.  The real change will occur from the bottom up, and starts at the grassroots level with each individual voter.

The voter privilege is exercised within the construct of voting precincts, the smallest organizational entity in the electoral process.  Counties and townships are subdivided into precincts with each residence assigned to a precinct.  In Clermont County there are 200 voting precincts, within the 14 townships.  Jackson Township has three precincts  – A, B, and C – with one polling location at the Jackson Township Community Center.  (Just to give a little perspective, Miami and Union Townships each have more than 40 precincts.)

Jackson Township is a very conservative area, within a conservative Clermont County.   Fortunately, that makes it a very wonderful place to live and raise a family.  But, unfortunately, conservatives are historically  less organized when it comes to voting than liberals/progressives, so that can put us at a disadvantage when we need to rally the voters.  Absolutely every vote is important in an election – especially in these times where our Liberty – indeed our entire way of life – is in peril.

So, as true conservatives, as Liberty-loving Patriots, we must make every effort to come together and raise our collective voices and votes to turn the course of our nation.  Toward that end, we need to organize to get out the vote for the upcoming November election.   Our friends and neighbors need to understand that this is more than just an election between two parties or two candidates.  This election is a decision about the America that we want for our children and our children’s children.  Government has expanded way beyond the scope of the original design of the Founders, and consequently has thrust us into a fiscal situation that will cause our nation to self-destruct.

This is a call to action!  We are looking for recruits – recruits to an army of Patriots who are deeply concerned about the direction America is headed and want to do their part to turn her around.  All across Clermont County, volunteers are coming forward to become “street captains”.  These individuals will be responsible for mobilizing the voters in their area for the November election and – hopefully – beyond.  It may involve registering new voters; and distributing information via door/mailbox  hangers, mailers, and/or phone calls – whatever it takes to reach our fellow conservatives and get them to the poll.

Are you deeply concerned about the future of our nation?  Have you wanted to do something about it, but not known what?  This is your opportunity to do something to make a real difference!  Email or call your precinct committeeman Marcie and volunteer!
