He is also the new chair of the King County Washington RLC, the infant child of the old RLC, the Republican Liberty Caucus… another one of those ‘GOP excitements’ which has been hanging around the shadows of the GOP for over twenty years.
Having served out it’s usefulness apparently, long ago, the RLC became arguably invisible, sitting on the shelf alongside dozens of other hulks which, like great ships, are left with but two elements of value… their license, and their hulls!
As providence would direct, the RLC appeared to have life literally breathed back into it’s lungs when 35 years of Congressman Ron Paul labor suddenly sprouted blossoms and began a mostly harmonious fruit-bearing, starting with the 2008 election season. Fast forward to the recent formation of the much hoped for branch of that Ron Paul Liberty Tree, manifest in the organization of RLCWA. The enormous King county provided the vibrant and rich soil seemingly perfect for a portion of that tree. But shadows might have crept across the horizon, or do they not?
The essence of the ‘Dubin letter’, extracted from this simple and courteous note to his RLCKC Chapter, may be read in these few phrases:
“… I want everyone to know that we have great momentum coming out of the State Convention, which took place in Yakima last month. We now have chapters in 15 of Washington’s 39 counties, and more are being formed every week. King County is the fastest growing county in the fastest growing state in the RLC. We are the center of the liberty universe for now! …
… we have… an obligation to take the lead in growing this organization… We… have… members in King County, but we could and should have many more. Each of us knows many… who … have not yet joined the RLC. Now is the time for them to do so. … I am challenging every RLCKC member to recruit one additional dues-paid member by the end of… If that means you pay their $45 dues, so be it, but I want to see those members on our rolls. … I am… committing to recruit TEN… new members by the end of… I am challenging… every board member to recruit FIVE… new dues-paid members in the same time frame… … the person… who recruits the most new members gets… prize.”
THE PCO DRIVE
… with respect to our most important goal of growing the liberty wing of the Republican Party by identifying and recruiting new PCO candidates…
… In addition… we should all be engaged in our local party organizations, persuading existing PCOs that they are with us, and that they have a home in the RLC…
… we must never lose sight of our ultimate goal: to restore liberty, free markets and limited, constitutional government to our County, State and Nation. We can do this by restoring the Republican Party to its traditional role as an unequivocal champion of these positions. If we stay engaged, stay involved and stay active, we will not fail in this endeavor…
… See you all at the June meeting… In Liberty, Matt Dubin Chairman”
But what does it mean for liberty today? The death of life at home and abroad, of friends and family and Bibles and missionaries? The abominable loss of what God has given a man to enjoy of the fruit of his labor?
Will we really have a fight at last, a desperate fight for the last vestiges of freedom, against the fickle blight, the treacherous whores of politics, the naive now elevated to serf who decry their lack of safety when free, and fail to grasp that only free… is safe?
Or is it again to be…
Then we find the ‘Dubin letter’.
Sooooo…. slowly but surely the focus of this organization comes into view. Like a good pyramid business it revolves around trying to raise enthusiasm, in order to raise member numbers, in order to raise money, in order to earn a prize, to do… aah… what now exactly?
Those beasts called political parties, especially the GOP (hopefully not it’s caucuses but it’s starting to look like it), have for years attempted to grow, just like pyramid schemes! Lacking a good product, the best of con-men, con-women, and con-material was needed to bring in the money (oops, er… members). In the end it benefited the top dogs… it hurt the bottom majority. It made them poor in money, time, and freedom. It has cost them their liberty, and for far too many, life!
A real plan for real liberty change, like a good business, always requires a good product! In the case of political change towards freedom, based on sound principles and sound oath keeping candidates, a specific action plan is that product! Having such an action plan the grassroots will join forces by the thousands, almost as an after thought!
A principled America under the rule of law ABOVE all party, and ALL America will come to your party!
Where do you see this chair headed? I do not believe a tyrant in him blinds him… I charitably prefer to believe ignorance of the process, the crisis and the sacrifice, just might!
