When the RNC passed their rule
changes in August in order to consolidate power, they not only ignored their
own regular order and processes but trampled on the will of the State Parties
and grassroots activists who have helped re-populate the party with true fiscal
conservatives like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee.
In fact, Speaker Boehner gaveled down these rule changes even as he read a predetermined script off of a teleprompter. This is unacceptable.
The RNC must reverse these rule changes immediately. The changes, in part, removed the ability of State Parties to control their delegate selection process, giving all the power to a few lawyers and executives in the RNC.
The future of the GOP depends in
large part on its willingness to embrace the new decentralized nature of
political organizing. A reversal of the RNC rules power grab represents a
good faith effort and would be a strong step towards mending the relationship
between the Party and the grassroots activists they disenfranchised last
Sign the petition and tell the RNC to reverse the rule changes and put the grassroots back in the driver's seat.
