Now that the two-year-long presidential campaign season is over, and the Alt Right is feeling some wind in its sails, pro-white Christians should consider dipping their toes into the political pool themselves by participating at the neighborhood and county levels of government.
As opposed to the presidency, Congress, or Senate, which have an extremely limited number of jobs available (1, 435, and 100, respectively) there are dozens of local government positions in your area that are waiting for pro-white Christian involvement.
Far removed from the New York Times and Breitbart News outlets of the world are the everyday precinct committeeman and city councilman positions which often do not merit much attention — and even remain vacant for lack of candidates! Usually only mom-and-pop local media with limited audiences will bother to report on these positions, if at all.
Note that these are usually unpaid or barely-paid volunteer positions. The real payoff of these positions is not cash but credibility, name recognition, and wisdom. Like the Bible says, a man in government should be “able” (Exodus 18:21). We want men who know how to do the job, not people who are well-intentioned but incompetent. How can we aspire to run a country when we can’t even run a town? Like in baseball’s minor leagues, it’s at these lower levels where aspiring leaders can try, fail, learn, and try again with no harm and no foul to their political reputations or the cause they represent.
For example, if a Texan wanted to take part in his local government, he’d go to the Texas Secretary of State’s elections website to find out the deadline for filing his candidacy forms. He could even download and print it out, and see what he needed to do to fill it out. In a Texan’s case, he would have to wait until he was within 30 days of the general election filing deadline, which itself is 78 days prior to the election date itself. In other words, don’t file it too early or it won’t be accepted and you won’t be on the ballot — but don’t file it too late, or you won’t be on the ballot then, either.
Sound confusing? Don’t worry. There is literally a list of instructions on the form, and you can always ask for clarification about dates and requirements from your county clerk’s office. They handle elections at the county level, and the secretary of state handles elections at the state level. Don’t know who or where your county clerk is located? Not to fear — there’s a list of each one right here.
I randomly picked Houston County, Texas, to demonstrate the power and availability of local government offices. It has around 22,000 residents — about the size of a suburb in a lot of metro areas — and very few of them have served or will ever serve in local government. In other words: slim pickings. That translates into a greater likelihood of success for you.
If you lived in Houston County, you could call county clerk Bridget Lamb at (936) 544-3255 Ext. 241 and get the information you need. If you get one of her assistants, they can likely help you too. Remember to be nice. “You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”
Most states will have a list of county clerks’ phone numbers and addresses somewhere online, since county clerks are very important to the operation of local government and are very busy people.
The county has several public school districts, each of which is governed by elected officials. There are seven school district trustees who govern the Crockett Independent School District, and according to the trustee webpage,
Congratulations to each of our School Board Trustees whose 3 (three) year terms will expire this year, 2016. They each elected to run for another 3 year term & each is unopposed!
Unopposed! Now who wouldn’t like those odds on Election Day? And guess what? Those school board trustees will make decisions on Common Core, select textbooks dealing with evolution, race, and gender, and will approve or disapprove student organizations like Bible clubs, pro-white ethnic societies, and decide whether law-abiding citizens can bear firearms on campus.
A glance at the Crockett Public Library’s website revealed that it is governed by the J.H. Wootters Crockett Public Library Advisory Board. Those board members decide upon the library’s long-term plan, and hire and fire its librarians. Want to see the Culture of Critique on the shelf of your library? Want to have more children’s reading times involving same-race families and not “two mommies” or “Django and Susan” families? This advisory board is the place for you.
Again, there are few people who have the get-up-and-go to take part in such activities in the first place, or the grit to stick it out when the progressives on the board push back against you once you are part of the team. But the influence that one person on a five or eight-member board can wield is far greater than what one person can wield amongst millions of voters in your state, or tens of millions of voters in the nation. What’s more, you barely have to get out of your jammies to do the job. Many of the people who participate in these sorts of activities are working adults and retirees who would rather be fishing than debating, and have a pitiful sense of politically-correct snobbery, if any at all. There are few really fearsome people at the local level, just mediocre fish in even more mediocre, small ponds.
Let’s also take a look at the local hospital, Timberlands Healthcare. It is run like a business — which it is — but like many hospitals across the country, it is likely funded by the county and thus really owned by the public. This particular hospital is governed by a board of directors, who make the big decisions about whom to hire and fire as CEO, CFO, and so on. The board is made up of local bigwigs — really we’re talking about the grocery store manager, the local press chief, a PTA member, etc. — and is liable to infiltration by pro-white Christians with passion and expertise in healthcare-related issues. Things like Obamacare, death panels, abortions, birth control, vaccines, refugees. Anybody out there interested in doing something about those subjects? Then this is the place for you!
Note that the candidate filing deadlines and election dates of city council, school board, fire district, hospital district, water district, and other such entities fall on different dates. Some entities will hold their elections in even-numbered years, while others will do so in odd-numbered years. Some may typically hold their elections in May or August while others wait for the traditional November election dates. Again, ask your county clerk’s office for details on all of these things.
As the Texas Secretary of State’s website states,
Requirements for local offices (municipalities, school districts, other districts) in Texas vary according to the political subdivision. Therefore, you must contact the political subdivision where you are interested in running for office for qualification requirements, filing periods and other relevant information. At a minimum, you will be required to file an application for place on the ballot with your political subdivision.
It might be a hassle to track down which phone number to call or office to visit (many of these offices do not have websites, though some do), but this is bottom-up, citizen-led government at its finest! No top-down dictates from the feds or even the state here — many of the decisions made about these local elections are made at the local level. So again, that’s why your involvement can be so critical. There are rarely big lobbyists or globalist agencies breathing down the necks of these local boards and commissions. Rather, they rely on peer pressure exerted by one or two key leaders (mayors, superintendents, rich local businessmen) to keep the rest of the local herd in line. You can be the Trump fly in their ointment.
Make America Great Again by taking dominion over your city council, county commission, and your school, library, fire, water, and other districts! The Current Year is over. 2017 is ours!
