Our friend Neil W. McCabe, the national political editor of The Star News Network, recently interviewed Tempe, Arizona, attorney Daniel J. Schultz, the creator and advocate of the
Schultz said the Republican Party’s precinct and neighborhood committees control the party, and roughly half of the 400,000 seats across the country are routinely left vacant. If conservatives fill these 200,000 vacant seats, they will take over the party, and control how it gets out the vote and which candidates it endorses.
McCabe: The Precinct Strategy catching fire with conservatives is simple: Fill the roughly half of 400,000 local Republican committee seats across the country left vacant and take over the party from the ground up.
The strategy’s creator and advocate attorney Dan Schultz told The Star News Network and The Arizona Sun Times he based it on words his Wisconsin social studies teacher gave the class at the end of a course.
Schultz: If our country ever gets into a political quandary where the country needs help, you’ll know how to help it. And the first thing you’ll need to do is pick a political party and then become a voting member of it. So now we’re in a political crisis.
McCabe: The graduate of West Point said the precinct and local committees are the party, and when conservatives take over these committees, the party is theirs.
Schultz: You’re part of the apparatus. You elect the chairs all the way up to the RNC. If there’s no precinct committee, if there are no Republican precinct committeemen, there’s no party. Precinct committeemen are the party. And then the other really important thing you get to do is help get out the vote for the candidates of your choice.
McCabe: And while it is always better to get elected, often someone could just walk up and get appointed to a seat by a chairman. However, now the establishment is catching on, he said.
Schultz: The Precinct Strategy has gotten pushback from both the Left and from the Republican establishment around the country, and that pushback varies: “Oh, gee, we’re sorry we lost your paperwork,” or “Gee, we’re sorry you didn’t attend all the meetings you should have and therefore you’re no longer precinct committeemen.” Things like that are starting to happen.
McCabe: Schultz said the good news is that the GOP is like any other private organization.
Schultz: The Republican Party is a private organization and it’s no different than like a yacht club. The good news for conservatives is that if it’s being run by establishment people who aren’t very conservative, we can outnumber them if we’ll run for these positions and fill them all up.
CHQ strongly endorses the Precinct Strategy, which won the CHQ Liberty Prize a few years ago and figured prominently in CHQ Chairman Richard A Viguerie’s book TAKEOVER.
As a precinct committeeman, explained Mr. Viguerie, you will also be eligible to attend your county committee meetings and elect your county leaders. You will be eligible to attend the party nominating convention (assuming you can get elected as a delegate). You could even become your state party chairperson or one of the two Republican National Committee members from your state.
There are thousands and thousands, probably hundreds of thousands, of Americans who are now active in the MAGA movement and other conservative grassroots organizations, who want the Constitution to be followed, who by their mere existence demonstrate we have the numbers to take back the Republican Party.
What’s Dan Schultz’s plan for conservatives to take over the Republican Party and govern America according to conservative principles?
In its simplest form it is this: Elect a majority of Republican precinct committeemen who subscribe to limited-government constitutional conservative principles in every county in America. This strategy is not rocket science. Just good, old-fashioned, basic American civics.
Can such an audacious plan be accomplished? Yes, if YOU file and run for precinct committeeman or woman in your precinct.
