Political Elitism is what pushes people away from politics. But it attracts those who seek to gain power or prestige. This is not what our nation’s Founders intended.
Our nation’s Founders were bold men. They were God-fearing and well educated. And they succeeded in creating a nation and government like no other. The world had never had such a system before and it hasn’t been duplicated anywhere else since the United States was born. The United States is the exception and we are in danger of loosing it forever.
Our political structure was designed by and for a God-fearing and well educated people. This is the only way to have a government by the people, for the people, and of the people. Otherwise it will become a government of the elite and power seekers.
Every time I get elected to the county central committee, it is the same people. I try to rotate myself out so I do not fall and become one of them. And only step back up when there are no others willing to step forward.
But to see the same faces for 2-3 decades on the central committee is a bit disenchanting. And the Party Leadership wonders why it cannot attract new voters to their banner.
We are all disenfranchised. We have record numbers of voters participating in this election cycle. Yet we send the same people to the National Convention that we sent in previous election cycles. The same power brokers. The same losers that gave the GOP McCain and Romney as presidential nominees. And they scratch their heads wondering why we loose time and time again.
Well when you do the same thing over and over again and expect different results it’s called insanity. Unfortunately it runs high in political organizations. Because they are infected by the elitists and the power hungry.
We need to send new blood to our offices. From the county central committees to the state central committees and other standing offices. And more importantly to the National Convention as well.
The elitists and power hungry must be pushed out of the leadership positions within the GOP. The leadership needs to be made up of people that are called to serve, not called to power as a moth to the flame.
Maybe there should be term limits enacted at the local party leadership level. To remove the power hungry and elitists from their thrones. And to allow those that are truly called to serve their communities to these offices of leadership.
