Re: Meet Up - New Paltz/New Meet Up Group
- Meet Up: The College Dinner "Where do we go from here" "TERM LIMITS" will be on the agenda.500 Main StreetNew Paltz, NY845-255-5040Tuesday, November 18, 2008 700 PMGuest: George Devine, Co-ChairUlster Co. Independence PartyEveryone is welcome to attend. Please RSVP to me directly (csvensson@...) or join the new Meet Up group below which is replacing the Orange and Mid-Hudson RP Meet Up groups (along with others).In late August, I asked the question, "Where do we go from Here", since I was well aware that Ron Paul Meet Up Groups would soon 'die' for lack of focus. I also suggested a few ideas that "we" might consider.Organizers of 6 Ron Paul Groups in Orange, Rockland, Westchester, and the Mid-Hudson are consolidating their operations, and with other "limited government advocates", in a Hudson Valley Meet Up Group as part of a state-wide effort to recruit and motivate freedom lovers into a cohesive political force. This effort is being spearheaded by the RLCNY and Ron Paul advocates. It is open to membersof all political parties. We are not trying to undermine local Ron Paul groups, Libertarian or Constitution Party groups, or any other organized "limited government advocates", but we hope that we can coordinate our activities and forces to coalesce around issues and candidates that we can agree to support.The Meet Up Group "format" has some advantages, and some serious disadvantages, primarily in communication. For that reason, RLC sponsored Regional groups and its state-wide organization group use both the "Meet Up" format and the e-Group 'format' which complement one another.You can join the new Meet Up Group by following this link: http://rlc.meetup.com/120/members/ .You can join the e-Group by following this link: RLCNY-HVemail@example.com Moderators of this group include Don Silberger and Bob Cotton of the LPNY.You might be interested in joining the state-wide e-Group.You can do this by following this link: firstname.lastname@example.org"Members of this group include much of the state leadership of the RLCNY, the LPNY, the NY Constitution Party, the John Birch Society, the Republican Urban Coalition, Organizers of the state-wide Libertarian, Conservative, and Republican Meet Up groups, and former Ron Paul "leaders'.For your general information: the RLC - the Republican Liberty Caucus (the libertarian Republicans) "sponsor" these groups, but members of these groups ARE NOT necessarily, members of the RLCNY.<Ron Paul was a former National Chair of the RLC>Yours in Liberty,Carl Svensson181 Stony Ford RoadMiddletown, NY 10941Cell: 914-850-0452
