Rightmichigan.com is proud to announce the victory of Blake Edmonds for the position of Republican youth chair.
During caucuses, the young Mr Edmonds reminded us of why we supported him in the first place. A well spoken ambassador to our youth trapped in the now more liberal college campuses will be necessary, and there is no question he will put together a program that reaches them before they are too far indoctrinated by the freakshows the Democrats have been allowed to install in our institutions of higher learning..
well done Blake!

This particular list is a reason that Bobby Schostak ought not be the Republican Party chair for Michigan.
Democrat LAURENCE DEITCH received $2000 from each of the Schostak Brothers in his re-election for regent.
In 2008. Why?
One thing that has become clear in the last couple of years is that pandering to the other side brings nothing but misery. Seeding the other side with financial resources makes it harder for OUR guys to succeed. Does it ultimately matter if the chair is a good fundraiser, if our donations go to fight the beast he has fed in the past?
Consider this merely a start of a fact based critique.

Received this today:
Dear Michigan Republicans,
I prefer a real primary where substance wins over who is next in line. The "sender" being Bill Schuette, undoubtedly aware his name is being used, has likely not seen even seen this.
Nice machine you have there MI GOP. You should note there are a number of better choices available for our selection in 2012. A number of folks who ACTUALLY have principles.
Bill, I know you watch this from time to time. I would back off your endorsement, or just give in to the Obamacare mandate like a good party loyalist. Hell, Snyder doesn't even have your back. Mitt will likely do nothing to remove it from the books. Modify? Yeah probably, but remove? Nah. Ain't gonna happen.
The party is not over, but it will be different. Think about that MR gover.. err Attorney General.

I don't pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening. Others who have formally announced according to Anuzis' blog are "former Bush Administration Official Maria Cino, RNC Legal Counsel & WI Chair Reince Priebus,"and," Ambassador Ann Wagner." Still, it is not clear if former Republican National Committee political director Gentry Collins is in yet, Collins left the RNC in a huff decrying Steele's ineptness at fundraising and his mismanagement of funds, nor is it clear if former RNC chair Mike Duncan is in. Regardless, the field is crowded, and may get more so.
Putting aside all the politicking, my purpose for encouraging endorsements for Saul Anuzis is from a purely grassroots level.

I have always been a Republican. In fact, I have never voted for a Democrat; no matter how much I disliked the GOP candidate on the ballot.
I have voted for Reagan (twice, though I supported George H.W. Bush in the '80 primary), Bush (twice), Dole and Bush (twice). Recently, I have been embroiled in a never-ending discussion on the comments section of another blog article. I have been discussing what happened to my Republican Party; the Republican Party of George H.W. Bush, Ronald W. Reagan, Gerald R. Ford, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. What happened to the party that had majorities in Michigan for a hundred years after the Civil War? What happened to the party that elected George W. Romney and William G. Milliken governor of Michigan?
While I am a conservative, in the tradition of Russell Kirk, I am also a pragmatist. And I thought it important to have this discussion as Republicans from across Michigan prepare to embark for Mackinac Island.

One of the things that made Reagan so successful was that he had a strong rudder and knew where he was going. He didn't let the "facts" change his mind. When presented with information counter to what he knew was right, he just told them to get him some new facts.
Recently folks have been talking about personal responsibility and families (not family values). These issues resonate with most Americans and speak truth. If these issues are to be our rudder, our leaders can't be thrown off course by the "big tent" theory. With that in mind, here is an e-mail I got from a friend of mine, Chuck Moran. Enjoy!
I just wanted to throw out some thoughts I had this morning with regards to Saul Anuzis' run for RNC Chairman as well as the direction the Party is headed in the future.
Let me start right off by saying that I have spoken to Saul many times in the past and found him energetic and affable. He is a good speaker and is far from being lazy. At this point in time, I am not saying he is my candidate for the position of RNC Chair, but if he won I wouldn't throw myself out a window either. Please do your homework on this important issue.
My problem is the direction of the Party itself. Prior to the 2006 gubernatorial race in Michigan, I wrote Saul and Party Chief, Chuck Yob, that "the average voter cannot tell the difference between a Democrat and a Republican" after these men supported Joe Schwartz for U.S. Representative in Michigan's 7th Congressional District. While I have no personal animus towards Joe, I believed he did not reflect the traditional Republican values his constituents desired such as protecting the unborn and not supporting embryonic stem cell research. This runs counter to the traditional GOP platform and blurs the distinction of who is the liberal in the race. My suggestion was to not support anyone in the race if they couldn't come right out and support Joe's conservative opponent. Mr. Schwartz lost to Tim Walberg in that race. Since that time, I believe Saul has gotten "Conservative Religion". Read on....
