Political parties are political vehicles. They aren’t sacred and often times we can see them shift in significant ways when viewed historically. The reason for this movement is that these political vehicles are defined by the people who make them up. They are malleable and can be strongly influenced by dedicated groups of activists.
This truth has strong implications for all grassroots movements, such as the TEA Party. Most conservatives today realize that the historical realities and legal structure of our electoral system make our two-party system a long-term reality. Whether you are a fan of that or not doesn’t change that it’s a fact. Wishing the system to change will not make it so. There is a way, however, to change the way the party works!
The Precinct Project has been launched in an effort to help educate and motivate conservatives across the country to become more involved in the political process. Toward that end, we are working to gather and curate an ever-growing amount of information about how to become a Precinct Chairman or Committeeman, how to be effective in that role and how to maximize your impact within the party system.
