JRP press release on Real ID Act

Therefore, we the members of the Jefferson Republican Party, call on all states to act as the Legislature of Maine already has, and to enact a resolution refusing to implement the REAL ID Act, protesting the actions of that law, and calling for Congress to repeal the REAL ID Act of 2005.

You can read the rest of the press release here.

    Good for them!

    It’s good to see that even Republicans are getting sick of this Orwellian crap.

    JRP are hardly republicans. Hopefully they’ll do big things in the next few years and prove that to everyone.

  3. Austin Cassidy Says:

    It’s an interesting idea to try and create a spliter party that incorporates the name of a major party.

    I’m guessing the “Progressive Democrats” would have more electoral success than the “Green Party” currently does.

    True Austin. However, you will also CONSTANTLY be plagued with the theory that you are piggybacking.

    The AIP and IAP of California and Nevada have caught alot of heat in the CP over this. I personally could give less of a shit what their name is. And I would consider it stupid to change the name, as those states would lose ballot access and basic appeal (I think the name sounds better).

    Austin Cassidy,

    Do you think your blog has helped to promote third party success, or do you think it has done more to instigate infighting and division? I respect your right to blog regardless of your motivation or desired results. I personally think this blog has done more damage to third parties than it has helped them.

  6. Joe Says:

    Wes,

    Why do you think that?

  7. matt Says:

    Wes,
    To be fair, you didn’t ask me, but the way I see it is that infighting is always to be expected from frustrated people, since that’s just human nature.

    Since this site helps people network and makes getting and sharing information easier. Those two things have the potential to make the emerging parties stronger and more successful. As this happens, there’ll be less frustration and consequently, less infighting.

    Which is to say I love the site and think the long-term effect is quite positive.

    Wes,

    you dont have to read TPW.

  10. Cody Quirk Says:

    I don’t think so Wes.

    The JRP isn’t actually “piggybacking” the G.O.P.
    The “Republican Party” itself hijacked the name from the then thirty year dead Republican Party of Madison and Jefferson, we are simply applying the name to a party more in line with the original Republican beliefs of the early nineteenth century.
