The time for soft words has passed.
The Illinois Republican Party (IRP) is controlled by a cartel of men and women who ignore the Republican Platform, support (either directly or indirectly) the killing of babies, and can by no means be called "conservative."
Do you have an interest in this one, perhaps last, window of opportunity to work some good in the IRP?
On April 18, every county in Illinois will hold a county Republican Party convention. At this county convention, Republican precinct committeemen will fill two important party positions:
1. The chair of the county Republican organization
2. The IRP State Central Committee (SCC) member that represents that county
The IRP is governed by the SCC, which consists of 18 members, one representing each of the state's congressional districts. The SCC members are elected by a vote of the precinct committeemen within each congressional district.
The SCC is a powerful group. Their purpose is to "establish, organize, and promote the operations of the Republican Party." They determine which candidates will receive money from the IRP and also who will serve on the Illinois State Convention platform committee.
If you are a precinct committeeman, we urge you to vote for a liberty-minded, pro-life candidate that adheres to the Illinois Republican Party Platform. If you are not a precinct committeeman, you can still help by appealing to your precinct committeeman to vote for a conservative, Platform-respecting candidate.
If there is no liberty-minded, pro-life candidate in your district, we suggest you abstain from voting. A substantial undervote sends a compelling message that the base of the IRP is conservative and wants conservatives to direct the IRP.
Here are the State Central Committee 2018 candidates conservatives can personally recommend. Each one is worthy of the base's support. Be brave. Be bold. Your boldness will strengthen the weaker ones to do good.
