Holy moly, I adore Andrew Langer. I adore anyone who isn’t afraid to stand behind their principles and call out those who are blinded by maintaining the status quo.
I’m relatively new to Maryland politics, the Dan Bongino campaign was the first I actively worked on. Over the past year, I’ve gotten to know several people in Maryland’s conservative political circles, and I’ve heard so much garbage. I’ve heard about the power trips, about Republican’s not supporting Republican’s, and being the sometimes naive, good hearted person that I am, I wanted to believe the best about people. I thought to myself, it can’t really be that bad. Sadly, it appears I was wrong.
Yesterday I blogged about my first MDGOP convention experience. While I had a lot of fun, there certainly was a strong undercurrent of tension surrounding the proposed resolutions. I was fortunate enough to serve as a proxy for one of my Wicomico County Republican Central Committee members, and although I felt confident in my vote to table the motion regarding Tari Moore, now I feel not only confident, but proud of my vote.
I strongly encourage my fellow Maryland conservatives to keep a close eye on Red Maryland’s blog, and especially to read the entire article posted today by Andrew Langer. I continue to hope that we will rally behind true conservatives, and fracture the power structure that is proving to be the detriment of the Republican party in Maryland. As my friend Dan Bongino said regarding this past election, if you’re not afraid to lose a few friends, get out now. We need to be prepared to stand strong and fight where it is justified.
Two hashtags that I used frequently during the Bongino campaign were #IntegrityMatters and Dan’s own #CedeNoGround. They both still resonate today, and will continue to do so. #Maryland2014, we’re coming.
