Many of us are wondering "With the primary season coming to an end, where do we go from here?"
Well obviously, supporting local candidates is a great thing for us to do. But how do we keep our organization together? Do we really want to keep the name "Ron Paul" associated with our movement? Do we want to form a new organizational structure? Or do we want to start forming local chapters of already existing groups such as the John Birch Society?
How long can we continue to operate through Ron Paul meetups until we become as silly as the Lyndon LaRouche supporters?
I don't have the answers to all of these questions, but I do have a little tiny bit of insight.
Last night my meetup got together and discussed these issues. We came to the decision that we are going to start operating as a totally autonomous group, yet under the umbrella structure of Freedom Force International. We are going to actively seek power and influence in a manner advocated by G. Edward Griffin's speech "An Idea Whose Time Has Come"
And thus, the second Freedom Force International Meetup was created.
I just thought I would throw this out there into the internet's free market of ideas. If anyone else is trying to figure out what to do with their meetup, you may want to consider this.
