Last night, the Clark County Republican Party Central Committee in Nevada unanimously passed a resolution soundly denouncing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012, sections 1021 and 1022, and requesting immediate action against it by the Clark County Sheriff. These sections of NDAA 2012 include language that the Clark County Republican Party calls “blatant attacks on the United States Constitution, specifically Amendments 4, 5, 6, and 8 of our Bill of Rights”. In NDAA the federal government claims the right to detain American citizens indefinitely, without producing a search warrant.

The resolution passed last night calls for and requests the Clark County Sheriff, Douglas Gillespie to publicly state that Clark County is not a battlefield, as the NDAA declares, and that he will not enforce the imposition of martial law, absent a declaration of war duly approved by Congress. In addition, the resolution requests the Sheriff to publicly state the he will not aid or participate in the unconstitutional arrest, detainment, torture, assassination, or extraordinary rendition of any United States citizen in Clark County, Nevada.


Some of you guys might be surprised but if you read the article all the way to the end, you'll realize this was done by Ron Paul supporters who have successfully taken over the GOP of Clark County, which makes up 70% of the population of the entire state of Nevada. Who would've thought that an entire County Republican Party would come out and openly denounce the NDAA of 2012? Most of the executive board of the GOP is now run by Ron Paul supporters who are working hard to restore the principles of sound money, non-interventionist foreign policy and liberty.

The change doesn't come from some obscure figure that sits in D.C. and makes speeches to the nation a few times a year. REAL change comes from WITHIN.

Government is run by committee.
Take over the committees, take our government BACK.

At least that's one tiny glimmer of hope and change. Do you suppose that's the "Hope and Change" Obama had in mind? No? Well, I was just trying to put the best face on it....

If only they could do this on a National stage...

Get behind reducing gun control... and get mad about NDAA, I don't even care if its pandering...

I might, just might reconsider writing in RP, if their MItt Puppet can follow through on this...

The 'Clark County Republican Party of Nevada' is not "THE" Republican Party. Considering that the Sponsor (Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon [R-CA25]) of the NDAA is a Republican, the Republican Party has fully embraced the NDAA. Even the Democrats have embraced it, even if the person who signed it into law claimed to have some "reservations" about it. There are local Democratic governments that have also denounced it, as other local Republican governments. I would not go so far as to claim either of those represent a unified party opposed to the NDAA. (see: Democrats and Republicans at local level step up to oppose NDAA detention)

I used the title of the article so nobody gets confused.

The Ron Paul people took over Clarke County which is why this happened. Had they not the GOP in Clark County would never had done so.

In GA the state GOP considered a motion to denounce NDAA and it had tremendous support. Prior to it passing someone added an amendment that the state GOP could not support any candidate that supported the offending resolutions in NDAA and so it was then defeated.

They don't mind talking a good game, but they'll never walk the walk (not the entrenched socialists within the GOP - which is most of them).

While I am not a Republican, I now know who is getting my vote this fall.

The subject .ing is slightly misleading. It makes it seem like the entire GOP, especially the Representatives and Senators, denounced it. Instead it's just one group of Republicans in a county in Nevada and not even Republican lawmakers.

Who? Did you read the OP or just the .line? It's not all Republicans nationwide, including Republican leadership, that denounced the NDAA. It was a group of Republicans, not even lawmakers, in Clark County, Nevada. Hardly a coup.

Ron Paul.

I read the article. I had it narrowed down to Ron Paul or Gary Johnson. Even if it is a minority of GOP, it is 'his' minority, you could say. While I am liberal in many aspects, I don't find enough common denominators to align myself with the Democratic party, and I feel Gary Johnson would be a vote that would be better served going to Ron Paul.

And if Ron Paul throws in the towel, I will then revert to back to Gary Johnson.

And if Gary Johnson is not a candidate for some reason, then I will write-in my dog, Kenai. Or whoever is not Mitt Romney.

That's how the MSM works. They tell you half truths so they can get what they want.

Well if you are "Liberal in many aspects" what about Jill Stein? RP and GJ are more Conservative and both are Republicans. Well GJ was until Dec. 2011 when he realized that he couldn't win the GOP ticket. He's still very much a Conservative Republican, as is Ron Paul.

Because I am more aligned with Ron Paul and Gary Johnson than I am with Jill Stein. I am liberal in my aspects, but not as many as Jill Stein, and there are issues where I am conservative and she is not.

Unless you mean vote for her if I can't vote for RP or GJ. In which case I would consider it. Anyone but Romney, IMO.

Another glimmer of hope. While I realize this is a local group of republicans but between grassroot movements , social media and the republicans blood like thirst to win it may take hold.

Just look at the way Audit the fed is being tossed around as a viable law. While laws like these will undoubtly be loopholed and cut up, it may give us an extra minute or two to wake up maybe a few more people.

And since its a numbers game those extra few aware people are more than welcome imho.

OK. Well to each their own. I guess I would have to get a full run down of your beliefs vs. hers and GJ's to fully understand where you differed from her.

I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread that I used their title. I don't see it as misleading, The Republican Party in Clark County Nevada (which represents 70% of the entire state) is a Republican Party.

So let's talk about substance of the actual subject instead of complaining about titles? Do you have anything of substance to add?

Mainly gun control, environmental issues, crime, and some poverty/welfare issues.

That is not to say that there aren't issues I agree with her more on than I do RP or GJ (there are), but as a whole, they are better candidates for me than JS. and I 'agree' with them more because they encompass my values as a whole more.

I am pretty much down the middle a moderate conservative. And I align myself more with the values of the Libertarian party. But at the same time, I don't think GJ has much of a chance with or without my vote, which is why I don't have any qualm about RP.

The whole idea of a party system actually irks me. I don't pay much heed to what party someone is a part of, so much as I do where they stand on issues that I am concerned with.

Besides, with any candidate, there is a difference between talking the talk and walking the walk.

I agree.

Even on gun control, I find it far more 'liberal', by definition of the word, to allow people to have guns than to restrict them.

Our parties are aligning themselves with words, yet not always following the definition that word evokes.
