While the majority of Republican PC’s enjoyed their evening at the Manning House for the annual Lincoln Day Dinner…
…Several Precinct Committeemen, along with other fellow Independent Conservatives gathered on Congress St. to let their feelings be known:
The organizer of the protest had this to say regarding the event:
I am a Precinct Committeeman against the re-election of John McCain. I organized this event because McCain’s voting record goes directly against the core ideas that are fueling the conservative revolution and the tea party movement. The Republican Party PC numbers have increased significantly because people like me have entrusted them to stand strong with conservative principles. However, when they headline John McCain as their main speaker to the annual “2010 Lincoln Day Dinner” to honor these Precinct Committeemen, a man who has so many times gone against these principles, it makes we wonder if they are truly paying attention to what is driving their new found success.
Senator McCain may change his platforms around election time, but he cannot change his voting history. I feel that it is important to send a clear message to the GOP that supporting this type of behavior is no longer acceptable and we the people of the Republican Party are tired of politics as usual – and we want a party that we can be proud of.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank each and every person who came out and protested by my side. It is great people like yourselves, who have the courage to stand up for what you believe in, that will affect change within the Republican Party and the Nation!
