In a facebook message RPV Chairman Pat Mullins said the following:
I’ve called a special meeting of the Republican Party of Virginia’s State Central Committee meeting for January 21st. The only agenda item will be to revisit the loyalty oath that Republicans must agree to before voting in the GOP Primary for President.
I’m asking the members of the State Central Committee to talk to their various constituencies about this before the vote.
The broader issue is …. we need Party registration in Virginia. Democrats have fought this for years for obvious reasons. We can’t have Democrat party loyalists flood our primaries to affect our nomination process. Party nominees must be chosen by their party.
However, in 2012, there are quite a lot of non-party-affiliated voters who will be helping us remove the current occupant of the White House — tea party members, conservative independents, new first-time voters, young people who can’t find work — people who want to participate this year to save their country. We must consider this in our deliberations.
This is good. There are many county Unit Chairs (myself included) that want nothing to do with something so ludicrous as a “loyalty oath”. Hopefully, the RPV will come to it’s senses and rescind this plan.
If the GOP in general would stop nominating statist pigs like Romney, McCain et all, then they wouldn’t need a stupid loyalty oath. If they would follow the Republican Creed and nominate conservative candidates that love liberty we wouldn’t need to find ways to force voters back to the polls during the general election to support trash candidates.
