Stan Casacio Comments From Montco GOP Election
Stan Casacio sent us a copy of the speech he made after the Montgomery County Republican Committee’s election of officers, last night, along with a letter to supporters.
Liz Preate Havey was re-elected as party chairwoman in a surprisingly close election.
We are publishing Stan’s comments.
Being the chairman of a party especially ours is like herding cats everybody is pulling and tugging you in many different ways.
For 50 years I’ve supported our great Republican Party. I’ve been standing on the poles since the days of hard hat for Nixon and yes my hair did stick out from underneath the hard HAT.
I’ve always tried to emphasize the positive aspects of our Republican message Which is a common sense pragmatic conservative moral message.
We understand that inflation, government corruption and crime does not discriminate. Many of you have been to my house and HAVE enjoyed many of my events.
I have offered time on my radio show to our candidates to speak anytime
Diane and I have entertained everyone from national leaders to local candidates to Tuskegee pilots to Tiffany Trump and everyone in between
But enough about me. the question IS why we are here tonight.
We are here tonight because we all know that’s something is not right.
We are here tonight because our grand old party continues to SNATCH DEFEAT from the victory.
We are here tonight because we are tired of our leadership ignoring the needs of the people.
We are here tonight because we are tired of getting an echo instead of a choice AND BEING Disenfranchised.
We ARE here tonight to say that the insanity of doing the same thing over and over again and hoping to get a different result ends tonight.
We are here tonight because TONIGHT we are going to begin to start to win.
We are here TONIGHT to state that the American dream is not dead and that we the people are in charge of our destiny.
We begin tonight to unite this party like it has never been united before
We begin tonight to be like our founding fathers and not back down And not to accept that BS that we are the radicals when in fact the progressive liberal Democrat party are the radicals of destruction
AFTER tonight we will begin TO take back our schools, our government and have fair elections.
After tonight we will take back and recognize real science SO That IN Montgomery County transgender men will not compete in women sports or get changed in women’s locker rooms.
And we ARE HERE TONIGHT TO SHOUT OUT THAT ALL LIFE IS IMPORTANT AND WE will always err on the side of life.
WE ARE HERE TONIGHT TO SAY THAT little Nero Josh Shapiro with his Laurel CROWN ON his head will no longer be able to fiddle while crime sores and our state burns.
I end on this though –in the movie FM Peter Finch at the end OF the movie is so fed up with what is happening he and demands everybody go to their windows and stand up shout out and say we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.
We are in a revolution IN WHICH THE democratic leftist party is destroying Our county our state in our country and it’s up to us to shout out that we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.
I ask you to stand and make this pledge that we are mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore .
Please vote for me let’s make change happen.
Thank you letter
I would like to take a moment and thank everybody who took time out of their day and engaged in the process to try to make our Grand Old Party better. I also want to thank all of you personally for supporting me and supporting the movement that, I hope, in some small way helps us to become winners.
As I stated, Republicans have the message. We should not run from it. We have the historical data that proves the common sense pragmatic conservative moral based message works. The real antagonist to our American dream is the now socialist progressive Liberal Democrat party, that somehow believes that laws, voting systems and government can be changed to meet their globalist view. Our constitution is meaningless to them. The Success or failure of individual Americans does not matter to them.
As to the meeting, at best it was confusing, at worst it was chaos. That is not to say I question the outcome but I do question the process. As a relatively successful businessperson, I am always looking to do things better so that we can obtain better outcomes. It was mentioned to me after the meeting by one person, who joked, “How can this party correct our voting system when it cannot even conduct a coherent voting process”.
There is no question that the by-laws need to be changed. That the election of three most important positions chairman, vice chairman and treasurer, should be held as individual elections. Then a candidate for one can be nominated for other positions if they lose in the initial position. The reason for that is quite clear, generally that person has generated enough interest by party members to have other alternatives open to that person.
Another suggestion that should be made in the bylaws is that there is truly a need for a recall provision. By having the recall provision, a chairman, a vice chairman and a treasurer, will know that a majority of Republican Party committee people will need to be satisfied and the success or failure of the leadership’s agenda can be changed. Four years is a long time to put up with a failed administration. Example -Joe Biden!
The other legitimate question that I was asked was why in the end did I challenge Liz Havey. Clearly as a vote total showed, there was a large group of active Republican Committee people, who are in the trenches every day, wanted a change. I felt that given those circumstances it was important to at least have the opportunity for those people to vote. That is the great thing about a democracy in which people have choices. Under a fair voting system, The act of voting becomes a relief valve which can prevent much broader chaos.
So once again thank you for being there, thank you for expressing your support and thank you for all that you do for our great party. Remember the real antagonists, the real radicals are not Republicans, are not conservatives and they truly are not the American people but is this radical socialist progressive Democrat party that has brought chaos and turmoil to our cities, has redefined the nature of science, and is now driving the American family into poverty.
LET US WIN TOGETHER
