We are all excited about the new Florida State Sovereignty legislation headed to Tallahassee in 2010. Several Republican State House Representatives have come together to propel this legislation forward.
What is so disturbing is that the same Party that puts forth this legislation, is engaging in some of the worst tyrannical maneuvers imaginable. Over a dozen Republican Party activists (me included) received via Fedex summons to appear in Orlando in two weeks. We were informed that 'grievances' had been filed against us.
Charges include such ludicrous infractions as 'having a negative tone' to 'using the Republican name without permission.' Another 'serious' violation was to be photographed wearing a Ron Paul for President button after the 2008 primary was over. I'm not making this stuff up!
Through back channels we learned that Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer had started a statewide purge of ANYONE that dared to question his authority or not to support the candidates that he had selected EVEN BEFORE ANY PRIMARY! Especially serious was to support US Senate candidate Marco Rubio.
Those that had been put on the list to be expelled ran the gamut of long time members (even including a County Chairman) to newer members that had proven invaluable to various campaigns.
I've setup yet another Facebook page that will be dedicated to sharing information and planning strategy on how to stop this outrageous abuse of power.
