The Republican Liberty Caucus of South Dakota has worked to change the South Dakota Republican Party from the inside outward by advocating liberty principles and working to elect its members to various public offices and various Republican Party offices. The only way to change public policy is to change elected officials. It is vital that we harness our distain for what the South Dakota Republican Party has become in a positive way so we can put liberty on the fast track for victory as we head into the 2012 general election.
Across the state, 66 counties exist and each has a county Republican Party organization. Precinct committeemen/women exist in these counties. These positions, which are chosen at the local level, make up the people who determine which Republican primary candidates are successful in their bids for public office and the makeup of the South Dakota Republican Party’s leadership. Of course, the South Dakota Republican Party leadership determines what principles the party will follow.
The Republican Liberty Caucus of South Dakota hopes to empower its grassroots network to learn how to run for Precinct Committeemen/women and how to organize a liberty slate of precinct candidates at the local and/or statewide level. By creating a “farm team” of passionate liberty advocates, we will be able to reshape the South Dakota Republican Party from within.
All laws regarding political parties and party affairs can be found in South Dakota Codified Law Chapter 12-5 and if you are interested in becoming a committeeman/woman see South Dakota Codified Law Chapter 12-5-4.
