Precinct Reform

Precinct Reform

We propose to begin the process of revitalization, and reform of the Political Process in our Precincts with a single basic concept. Concentrate entirely on building Precinct Power, for that is the only power of the people in our nation, and it is something that has been intentionally neglected by both Parties, for a long time,  under the leadership of the elites. This cannot continue.

Obama is presently in the White House because he used a variation of the "Chicago Precinct System" to sweep the Country. This is the little publicized aspect that was the key to his victory. The Chicago System is just a tool that any party can use. The mechanics are more or less ideologically neutral. Fundamentally, it means ORGANIZING the Precincts.

The reform and repair of our Precinct System will require, as it proceeds, an expanded base of resources and funding. It can, and probably should, start with a small pilot project (among other efforts,) as test marketing research project designed to produce the experimental templates that can, when tested and perfected, be applied in any County and State.

It is absolutely necessary to secure funding, and other resources, from those persons and organizations most interested in achieving these kinds of results. Hopefully, funding sources would include the RNC Republican National Committee, and the various campaign committees of the Senate and the House, State level organizations interested in their own states, County level organizations, and private organizations across a wide spectrum of interests ranging among religious organizations, business interests, individual activists, political donors of every stripe, and others.

All such groups and individuals are more than welcome to assist in creating the structure, goals, procedures and purposes of PrecinctParty projects, and to benefit from the revitalization of our political bone and muscle.

PrecinctParty presently is a non-profit religious organization designed to encourage religious minded individuals and organizations to participate more fully in the civil government political process. This will include registering eligible persons to vote, and urging them to inform themselves concerning the the various candidates and issues put before them, who are seeking their votes.

PrecinctParty as presently structured will endorse no specific candidates, or lobby for or against specific legislation. It is a grass roots organizing effort that is issues oriented, along religious, educational and charitable lines. It is seeking to simply revitalize and elevate the Precinct structure in American politics, which has been substantially overlooked, underfunded, and neglected heretofore.

The Precinct is the closest level of government to the people, and needs to focus on being relevant, in order to increase the quantity and quality of participation in the democratic process. One can say, "Good government grows out of the barrel of the Precinct." By its very nature the Precinct depends upon volunteers whose ancillary functions are serving as poll watchers and general conduits between the people of the neighborhoods and the political and governmental process all the way to national level. It is the premier lobbying organization on behalf of the ordinary people attempting to "redress grievances." 

To begin this task, raising seed money is essential. Thus we call on all those who can, to support this vital work with their time and resources.
