The mission of
Run For Your Precinct:

• to promote greater party participation by individuals from the private sector, particularly at the precinct level.

• and to point out the dangers of abandoning political parties to those who are compromised by their ties to government.

Run For Your Precinct is solely an educational endeavor. It neither supports nor opposes the election of any candidates nor seeks to influence any legislative or ballot issues.

 

The Skinny on Run For Your Precinct:

Run For Your Precinct was independently formed in 2009 for the purpose of advancing its stated mission (shown at the left), and has no other ambitions.

It wasn’t conceived, planned, or organized by any other individual, group, party, business or organization. It is solely the creation of its founding members, a modest, self-effacing lot who're pretty much run-of-the-mill people coming from routine private sector backgrounds, residing far from the centers of political life. Normal folks with normal concerns for their country.

Our Open Challenge:

When we, the founding members of Run For Your Precinct, started off this endeavor, we posted a challenge to all comers. After some eight years, we still put it out there. It goes as follows:

Our central belief is that too many political party committees consist of too many individuals who are compromised by their ties to government. But we freely grant this belief is only a theory on our part. While we know it rings true to us, and has certainly matched up with our experience, still, we'll concede we can't prove the theory is true. In fact, we'd probably accept that it can't be proven true or false. But regardless, we'll acknowledge there's a possibility that we could be wrong.

Therefore we put out a sincere and honest challenge. If anyone can make a decent case as to why our theory is faulty, then we're ready to listen. If they can persuade us that we've been in error, then we'll acknowledge it, say so on this website, make our apologies, close up shop, and drop the whole affair. We're all ears. But make it good. For as time passes on without hearing a single solid counter-argument (and so far we haven't), then we've naturally come to suspect that we've been right all along.
