Take the SURVEYS and give FEEDBACK

If we want our elected officials at every level to know what issues we want them to work on we’ve got to tell them!

Individually, our voices carry little weight.  Lots of individual e-mails to representatives on the same subject carries more weight.  But polls are the thing most politicians care about (besides their donors’ wishes).  A survey of thousands of their constituents may count more than thousands of donor dollars!

Download and print the 3 draft surveys, time how long it takes to complete each one, and rank your top 5 most important issues.  Send this information and any comments you may have to putnamrepublicans@outlook.com or use the Contact Form.  Help the REC Media Sub-committee build better surveys.

Become a MEMBER!

The Republican Party is organized on 3 levels into committees and clubs.

There are also plenty of conservative organizations out there in need of your passion.  Get involved!

...at the NATIONAL level

The preamble to the Rules of the Republican Party, begins:  “It is the intent and purpose of these rules to encourage and allow the broadest possible participation of all voters in Republican Party activities at all levels and to assure that the Republican Party is open and accessible to all Americans.”

Rule 1 states: “The members of the Republican National Committee [RNC] shall consist of one (1) national committeeman and one (1) national committeewoman
from, and the chairman of the state Republican Party of, each state.” 

Although membership in the RNC consists of only RPOF elected officers, there are plenty of Republican clubs and conservative organizations with a national focus you can join.  Find out more on the RESOURCES  page.

...at the STATE level

According to the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) Constitution, “The State Committee shall consist of the National Committeeman and National Committeewoman of Florida, a State Committeeman and State Committeewoman elected from each county, and the County Chairman elected from each county, as provided by Party rule. In addition to the foregoing, the State Executive Committee shall include those members as provided by state law.

Although membership in the RPOF consists of only REC elected officers, the RPOF authorizes state-wide and local Republican Clubs with unlimited memberships.

There are also plenty of other conservative organizations with a statewide focus you can join.  Find out more on the RESOURCES page.

...at the LOCAL level

Although each county has the option to organize differently, all RECs have to meet the minimum standards of the RPOF’s County Model Constitution.

In this constitution: “The County Executive Committee [REC] shall consist of one man and one woman, each being a registered Republican residing within each precinct. However, any precinct with more the 1000 registered voters shall have additional members in accordance with the provisions of the Rules of Procedure of the Republican Party of Florida.”  Therefore membership in the REC, as its name implies, is limited in number.

Republican Clubs, however, have open membership with no limits.  Locally organized clubs are chartered by the RPOF with the blessing of the local REC. 

VOLUNTEER!

There’s a job for everybody who is concerned about this country’s future.  Look for it!

DONATE!

Time is money, and if you don’t have time you SHOULD have money–if not you’re a Democrat!

...at the NATIONAL level

Americans have lost faith in our political party system.  There are probably as many reasons for this as there are voters, but the result is donations aren’t being sent to a party, they’re being sent to specific candidates–in frightening amounts!

In 2015, a memorandum of understanding between candidate Hillary Clinton and the DNC shows why this trend is dangerous–candidates with money can buy favors from the organization that nominates them!

We need to return to a system where candidates are chosen based not on what they say on the campaign trail but what they have done in the past that reflect their core beliefs.  If those actions do not reflect the Republican Party Platform, the Party needs to prevent them from running for office as Republicans.  Until then, use the RESOURCE page to find organizations that do this, and support their work with your donations.

...at the STATE level

Most Americans want to limit campaign spending.

How to do this without trampling on first amendment rights is the question the Supreme Court has been grappling with for decades.  

Our party system, if functioning properly, solves this problem by promoting core beliefs and stands on issues rather than the personality and popularity of individuals.  Unfortunately, today the Republican Party is more focused on its brand than on providing a quality product–representatives who’s actions reflect the Party Platform.

Until this changes the “biggest bang for your buck” is to support conservative organizations that rate candidates based on their actions.  Find these on the RESOURCES page.

...at the LOCAL level

Local politics has unique challenges.  You will seldom find organizations that rate local candidates on their past actions against a conservative benchmark. 

This is due primarily to the uniqueness of each community’s needs and the Party’s focus on state and national issues.  It is also due to the mundane nature of many elected positions.  What has a tax collector or property assessor to do with politics?

The answer is that most local officials belong to state associations whose job is to lobby state legislature, and most of those state associations belong to national associations that do the same with Congress.  Remember the NSBA letter labeling parents “domestic terrorists”?

There are organizations who are working on this problem.  Find them on the RESOURCES page.
