The Online Community that will "Pound the Pavement" in Every Local Community

Our thoughts for this group are not really an organizing effort of yet another group for folks to join and incur responsibility, indeed that is one of our greatest fears in the new information age, overload, addiction, the theft of peoples offline lives as they become more immersed in networking and the technologies that follow them everywhere they go.

Unlike Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin and others there will not be an endless troop of new groups or causes marching across your screens. We have very definite goals here as expressed in the "Mission Statement". It may seem there are a lot of groups but if you look closely each has a definite purpose in the Network. They advocate for a social issue important to us, they advocate for candidates running for office, they advocate for some of our great leaders, they represent our individual committee units around the state, they represent Congressional District Committees, they represent Womens Clubs, they represent YR's, College, Teens and so on. Each group fills a particular niche, we try to be careful in who is setting them up and we try to not have duplication. When someone comes here we want them to be able to get the information they need very quickly, comment, socialize or network without having a universe to search through, or being bombarded with offers to join multiple groups for the same causes.

Our main purpose is to create an information resource for Virginia Republicans and do it in a way that allows them to network with each other, help each other, announce events statewide, present the Candidates and offer a place for them to share views with others and network socially online. We do not want to steal their lives away, we hope to provide the opportunity for them to find what they need quickly and get back to the grassroots efforts they are involved in, because we all know, that is where the votes are won.

Our vision for this group, is such a resource. We hope to get as many folks to join and contribute as possible. As they comment on ideas, techniques or technologies we will try to split out separate forums by area of interest. As new developments in technology for the grassroots become available we hope to share them with everybody.

For those looking for a role beyond commenting, we will be looking for some members with expertise in particular areas to moderate or be admin on the forums here, as it grows.

We want this group and website to enhance the on the ground "Grassroots" efforts in every community around the state. We wish to take little and give back a lot.

To all, our best wishes in all your endeavors, keep clicking those keys but don't forget to save time, to "pound some pavement"!!

My best advice for everyone is to remain active in their local committee and work hard to get our nominees elected. If they are unhappy about our candidates, then the day after election, start looking for others. This can only be done from the inside. Those who participate are the ones that decide the future of the party. Those that sit on the sidelines complaining, get pot luck!

There are many good ideas to help in your efforts, on the various group pages here on RPVNetwork, and many more to come. This resource is like any other, it is as good as those participating will make it. Participate, share your ideas.....in the name of Liberty!

There is a ground swell toward principled governing by Republicans. In tough times it requires tough decisions, but the closer we stand with the principles embodied in our Republican Creed, the closer we align with the majority of Americans. We must stand firm on our principles and seek to make a clear definition between them and social issues which can change from election to election. Our principles are something to live by everyday, they are not a matter for convenience. Hold your elected officials accountable!

Stay tuned here on RPVNetwork, watch the events calendar for opportunities in your area. As the campaigns get rolling there will be support groups for the candidates, showing phone banking, door knocking and other opportunities to support your candidates. Join your local Republicans on the group page (If you don't have a group, make sure one gets started), to stay abreast of developments and activities.

If you know people who have been sitting home because they have not been happy with our candidates, explain to them that, that is not a viable option in state and federal elections, because the worst Republican is still better than the best Democrat as so many of the votes come down to party line. If they don't participate, it cannot get better, we will be relegated to always retaking lost ground, instead of moving forward.

Take heart in that you are fighting for the dream of our Founding Fathers and that, it is those principles and our Constitution that make us the greatest country on earth, even today. Obama is already taking heat from the rest of the world over his budget and stimulus decisions, they see the folly, been there, done that, themselves.

JOIN.......WORK HARD........STAY FREE !!

Thank you for the link. I'd heard about it, but hadn't found it yet.

Obama's eligibility to serve as President of the United States under the Constitution may receive a Supreme Court hearing!

According to World Net Daily, a Quo Warranto hearing may come before justices of the U.S. Supreme court. "...Quo Warranto essentially means an explanation is being demanded for what authority Obama is using to act as president." Over 325,000 voters have signed a petition requesting the Supreme Court to demand that Barack Obama produce his full birth certificate to prove his eligibility to serve as President of the United States under the Constitution. To date, he has refused to do so.

If you would like to join the 325,00 other signers of the petition, you may do so at:

I was just on a conference call for my friend, the Kerry Bolognese for Delegate campaign in District 41 (against incumbent Marsden). We have 8 months. Every single District in Virginia is open this Nov. for Delegate! Does everyone know whether there is a Republican running in her/his District? We have been caught short in the past and have had Dems running unopposed! I am in District 43 (D-Sickles) and I need to check myself!
