Tag: Youth Chair
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 guy will do "anything" to get the nomination. He doesn't care what damage is done, whether he tears the party apart, or what methods are used.... Note Language Warning

Though we apply a decent dose of critique and praise at times, we don't always officially endorse from here.
History will demonstrate that its hard to do so, without a near guarantee at some point that we eat crow. Some folks make mistakes, and we might even be associated with those mistakes when, and if, that time comes. In fact, associations are often a good indication of a candidate's character, or at the very least, his or her ability to discern the good from the bad. An occasional judgment lapse doesn't define a person, and as well, a minor success or effort does not either. However, we must embrace those who bring the whole package in a productive manner.
We must look at the big picture.
Today, we start with the recognition that our young voters have not only been misled by current political events, but their indoctrination in our failing public education system completes the corrosive understanding of government and politics. Folks, we recognize the need to concentrate first and foremost on that big picture by stepping up our outreach to our younger voters and activists. We need to embrace them. Not only to rebuild their trust in traditional conservative values as espoused in our Republican platforms, but get them involved as it is THEIR future we are fighting for.
Blake has been fortunate enough to have had a solid family values background, a sense of self reliance, work ethic, and skills that have allowed him to develop a college Republican organization that has kept the interest of his peers for more than a single meeting. He is willing to expand upon those skills statewide with a realistic strategy of growth by inclusion and involvement. This last point cannot be over-emphasized. Without a sense of belonging, its hard to rally the effort needed to win elections and spread a constitutional Republican message. A history of his efforts point to a likelihood of success as youth Chair.
We note the clearly conservative voices in support of Blake as well with Jen Gratz (HERO of Michigan's MCRI effort) Sarah Ledford, (incumbent youth chair) Jeff Sakwa, (2012 candidate, MSU trustee) and Dave Agema, who has demonstrated that there is room in the Republican party for ethical conservative leadership. On Blake's site one can find some quite favorable commentary. Association with these conservative stalwarts, along with a well considered plan of action, complemented by results already achieved by bringing a conservative Republican message to our youth, seals the deal.
A last word needs to be said however. for Blake, and others whom we may endorse in the next few days, it is important that he is allowed to accomplish what needs to be done. That requires a commitment to a party environment that fosters inclusion. Clearly, it would be helpful to consider a change at the top of our state party, so that such talent is not held back by a repressive central control.
And THAT, We will address shortly.
