| Dear friends and fellow Republicans,
One of the most important things in building the grassroots is the election of qualified state rep and state senators and building networks of Republican committees and other organizations. A good number of our state reps and some of our best rising stars in the Mass Republican Party have endorsed Rick Green.
I believe Rick has the organizational skills, fundraising ability and vision needed to grow the MASSGOP. If we are to grow the party, it will be with former Democrats like myself, Liberty folks, conservatives, independents joining our party.
In 2012, the MASSGOP did a poor job of letting libertarians and conservatives get involved. People are concerned about our country, economy and the future we are leaving to our children, and want to be involved in something they can believe in.
As Americans, we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights. That power is from God. We can choose to loan it to government or let them steal it by our apathy. There are two kinds of people: Those who have power and choose to use it, or those who want access to power.
The people should not fear their government or their political party and leaders. The politicians and government should fear (respect) the will and the power of the people. If the people will lead, the leaders will follow. We would be blessed to have Rick Green as GOP chair.
I like Scott Brown. I am not happy with every decision he has made, but i am able to talk with him and believe he has a great future and I will continue to work for him and on him. Kirsten Hughes has done a lot of great work, but the enthusiasm that propelled Scott Brown to the Senate came from the energy of the grassroots. That is what we need to build this party. Rick Green can tap into that energy.
One of the strongest and most important endorsements Rick has received is from our best and brightest state representatives. That is something I think should be paramount to our state committee members who will vote for MASSGOP chairperson on January 31. Contact your state committee people and ask them to speak with Rick, one on one and consider supporting Rick Green. Use your power as a citizen activist to shape the party you want.
Go to http://www.rickgreenma.com and read about Rick Green. Email or call him, speak with him. I think you will agree. Then endorse him on the website, and click Like and share with your friends.
As a party, we can do better. We have to do better.
