My Plea for you to join your state group and work together
I ask everyone to please join your state group and I’ll share with you some reasons why I think it’s important for all of us to do so.
Every single person is important and everyone has different talents. When we gather together in groups of likeminded people, we have a better chance at succeeding in our goals.
In joining our state groups we would then as a group, bring all of these talents together.
A few listed: I’m sure you can add more, and if so please put them in discussion comment.
Setting goal timelines and framework
Leaders Directing people
Working on the computer
Working the phones
Finding and Reading State Bills – Post action alerts
In the question I sent out asking everyone to explain to me why so many had not joined their state group, I learned that many people belong to so many groups and they are overwhelmed by the many conservative groups they belong to, because they are processing so much information and they can’t keep up with all of it. I understand that because I to am involved in many different conservative networks and groups.
I’ve been processing that information and I think we can use that to our advantage. Some of us belong to different groups/networks. Some of those networks post pretty much the same information, but some of the groups post different information. I’m thinking of a list of networks that I go to, to get different types of information. Here are a few of those:
Gathering of Eagles
Band of Mothers
Pat Dollard’s Website and ACTIVE starting Monday 4-20-09.
Blog Talk Radio
Patriots for America
The Goldwater Institute
Falon, and many others
Cross Action News
USA Wake Up, and
Many Conservative ning networks most of them for different information. Some are for specific subjects/categories, for example:
Patriots for America – (Focus on our constitution and republic)
Conservatives in Oklahoma (My State)
Take Control of Your Classroom (Education)
Sovereignty Alliance (State & National Sovereignty)
I joined those groups/networks because they focus on specific subjects of interest to me. Other networks/groups I’ve joined are for networking and meeting like-minded people in hopes of us getting together which would help all of us meet our goals.
I’m also on Stumble Upon, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, Blog Talk Radio, etc. I meet many more wonderful people with the same concerns as I have, plus the same goals. I do recognize that all of us have our own goals and that determines the networking we are involved in.
Bringing this together with why we should all join our state groups...
We each gather and network in different circles, yet in some of the same networks. We each have different skills and interest. That is why we should all join our state groups. Every one of us will bring different talents and also different information to our groups, to each other, to help each other succeed in our goals. Some of us will have the same skills, which is good, we can have each others backs.
I will use my state group for example: Ronnie Hunter asked me if I and some others from our area in Oklahoma would like to meet face to face once a month. Get to know each other, build a local network and build and work on an agenda. I liked that idea right off and answered him with a quick YES. Then I started thinking about the other people in our area that are on different networks, I’ve started asking them if they would also like to meet once a month and build a local network. I am thankful because the ones I’ve talked with so far have said yes.
This whole gathering and meeting is because of Ronnie’s talent. He seen a need and just asked the question. I would not have asked the question, but he did. Ronnie doesn’t know all of the people I know that I’m inviting and I also don’t know everyone he’s inviting. This is just the beginning. Each person that meets with us monthly will add their talents to our group. With us all doing what we do best, we will have a successful local group and accomplish much.
Also in my state group, Jenn Sierra follows and post State Bills. She summarizes them for us and tells us if we need to take action. Also AxXiom, post bills and also summarizes them and when she posts something there is always an action to take.
OkPatriot was quick to spot a Mexican flag on the Okc Tea Party news video, which she pointed out for us. I was there and did not see it. Ed Wrather updated us on all of the known Tea Parties in our state, as did Just Jackie. Their posts provided us with knowledge we all needed to know to make the Tea Parties successful. If one person does not contribute, that makes our state groups and members incomplete. We need each others input. They would all be for the better if everyone contributed on topic information.
Plus there are more that add important information, direction and discussion to our group. With everyone contributing, our state group is set up for success, when we don’t join together we are splintered and set up for failure.
It’s also important for us to work together. Some people have become information droppers. That’s all they do, they post information everywhere and do not interact with other members. I think of them as hit and run posters. That’s not really working together.
When we try to do everything by ourselves, we find we can’t. First off, we never have enough time. When we spread ourselves thin trying to do everything by ourselves, we also do a bad and/or incomplete job because we are spread so thin.
As I was driving to the Okc Tax Day Tea Party, I was listening to a local radio station. Someone had called in and was talking about conservatives being so hard to group together. The caller also mentioned how different we all are and that we allow that to divide us (And he was right). He said the reason for that is because we know what we stand for and we study and learn the important information. We learn our history and apply it’s lessons, etc. Whereas the socialist are easy to group together because they don’t know what they stand for, they just use the given talking points and they are sheeple. They do what someone tells them to do.
We should gather together because we know our constitution, we know our history, our foundation, what is right, truthful and what made this country great and what makes it work. Also because if we do not we will lose our country to socialist/communist/jihadist, etc..
Also I know I am not a good writer, so please excuse my writing.
