Ground Report from GOP Grassroots Conference
This viewpoint comes from an attendee with little to no prior exposure to the world of the GOP, but much interest in doing what can be done to Save Our State of Massachusetts.
There were over 400 people in attendance at the conference held in Milford. A multitude of programs spanned from the Friday night mixer, culminating with a Sunday buffet lunch off sight, (that was the only thing not included in the $50.00 attendence fee). It was truly one of the biggest bangs for a buck that could be conceived, and the organizers could not have provided for a more fulfilling program, or more options for the attendees to pursue. Additionally, the organizers bent over backwards for individuals’ needs and schedules, maximizing the benefits of this conference even further!
The opportunity to network among fellow activists was unsurpassed, but even more impressive was the lineup and accessibility of the speakers. Everyone from our newly elected, and veteran State Representatives, Senators, National, State and Town GOP Organizers to Michelle McPhee and Todd Feinburg from WRKO, as well as other talk show hosts from other stations were there. All were readily accessible, and eager to help in the mission to Save Our State of Massachusetts.
Best of all, this conference is probably the biggest indication that the Mass GOP has the potential to create its own “machine” to compete against the Democrats’ machine, which will prove instrumental for victory in the upcoming elections in 2012 and beyond.
From as far as this attendee could tell, this entire conference ran without a hitch, like a well-greased and oiled machine. May this be a foretelling of the many more good things to come, and just the beginning of the GOP’s efforts along these lines. It is certain that people would readily pay twice the amount for the next conference of this nature, and still consider it a huge bang for the buck, but moreover, there are hundreds more dedicated and hardworking activists that did not attend this either because of schedule conflicts or because they were unsure of its relevance to them – – – until now. A repeat performance of this conference in the fall should be a top priority as it is sure to draw hundreds more, and would go a long way to generating and perpetuating the energy needed to continue to network, grow, and unite this effort. Hopefully that can be considered a strong possibility as word spreads of the tremendous success of this conference.
Finally, for all the heat and pressure the Chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party Jennifer A. Nassour has been under, if this is an example of her leadership and direction for the party going forward, it is a job well done, and leadership we can believe in.

 This author had the pleasure of sitting with Michelle and Todd, and their significant others at dinner before their excellent entertainment commenced. Because of my personal experience and knowledge of Public Corruption that extends well into our “Justice System”, I want to acknowledge Michelle McPhee for being at the forefront of commenting on the corruption of our judiciary due to the lack of accountability and transparency. Because I believe the problem to go to the heart of corruption in government in general, and our state in particular, I believe that any effort to take back our state is dependant on fixing this first and foremost. Simply put, fundamental to addressing public corruption on any level is ridding it from our judiciary by making accountability and transparency therein our first priority.
As an outrageous case in point to the horror and damage those clothed in black robes can wreak on our society under “cover of law”, I refer you to THIS
, judges sending innocent children to prison for profit
. While it did not occur in Mass, scenarios of varying degrees similar to this occur daily in our courts across Massachusetts. I know, I’ve seen it, and it must be stopped before we can rely on the judiciary to hold other public officials accountable. Judicial Accountability is at the heart of stopping fraud, and saving billions in the fraud, waste, and injustice that permeate our state.
