Michigan Republicans were placed on life support after the 2008 November election. The losses were BEYOND significant. This wave of party destruction could change significantly if Michigan Republican Precinct Delegates support Jack Hoogendyk for Republican Party Chairman.
Many Republicans at both the state and federal level feel that they no longer have a party to call home. Ron Paul Republicans look at the Republican Party and wonder how the train wreck occurred over and over again to the core principles that the Republican Party once stood for.
Don't dismiss the significance of Ron Paul Republicans in Michigan! Ron Paul received 54,475 votes even beating media darlings Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuilani. In fact, ALMOST beating them both in combined votes. The Michigan Ron Paul Republicans numbers have further increased since the launch of Campaign for Liberty in Michigan and across the country. Keep in mind that many NEW Republicans joined the party just to vote for Ron Paul.
There are growing reports of MANY Ron Paul supporting Republican Precinct Delegates making the decision to support Jack Hoogendyk for Party Chair in Michigan. This is excellent news and I would ask for their continued support of Jack Hoogendyk.
In comes Jack...
Jack Hoogendyk will truly help unite a Michigan Republican Party. Jack will draw support of Republicans across the political spectrum and create the positive change needed for victory in Michigan. If you review Jack's voting record it will become clear that he will bring the Michigan Republican Party back to it's core conservative principles, which is precisely how success will begin.
I also strongly believe that Jack Hoogendyk will create the same type of passion and excitement that Ron Paul did for this party. People loved voting for Jack Hoogendyk as state representative because he was not "wishy-washy" or a Republican in name only (RHINO). You knew where he stands and where he will take this party.
For example, Jack Hoogendyk was a strong supporter of Michigan House Bill 4564 and did not waiver on his support of equal parenting for fit and willing parents. To hear Jack speak about HB4564 was truly an exciting experience - his message was simple - to NOT support equal parenting for fit and willing parents is wrong for BOTH parents - BUT MOST OF ALL WRONG FOR THE CHILDREN. Zero wavering - his position clearly defined in a way anyone could understand.
This is really what Michigan Republicans need to win big once again. All to often, you hear people state that it is becoming difficult to differentiate between Republicans and Democrats in Michigan.
So Michigan Republican Precinct Delegates I urge you to support Jack Hoogendyk for Michigan Republican Party Chair. Visit Jack Hoogendyk's website and voice your support. Be sure to also visit his blog Core Principles which has been excellent to date.
Let Jack Hoogendyk bring ALL Michigan Republicans together to create passion, excitement and most of all VICTORY! The economy in Michigan will most likely become even more challenging than it is currently. EVERY REPUBLICAN needs to understand the changes needed to connect with voters. These changes and core values are clearly defined in this youtube video. This is a must see video all the way to the end. I pray that Michigan Republicans will support Jack Hoogendyk and also LEARN from the wisdom of Ron Paul as documented in the above video.
