Below quote is from a longtime Maryland Republican activist and credible source who wishes to remain anonymous.
'Folks of the Republican State Party, two party government, real
election candidate choices, or supporters thereof!
Coming to a potential head is a report to be completed shortly and
then published to the general Central Committee members by the State
GOP's By-Law Review Committee!
This review report along with a draft copy of the proposed By-Law
changes should be out soon!
Charged with a review of their clumsy past 'LCD Voting' method,
totally confusing and disliked, plus cleaning up some minor
inconsistencies present in the current By-Laws, what actually will be
the final recommended product?
Will these changes help, or forever kill the 'Grand Old Party' in
this state for the rest of the century?
Are these potential changes going to allow the GOP to move forward,
after clearing up some items which had the Party forever tripping
Or will some of these changes result in the "Gang Who Could Not Shoot
Straight' again shooting themselves in the head once more?
Did Maryland's #2 political party learn anything from the latest
election cycle, take into account and embrace the wave of 'Tea Party'
driven political reforms to move forward?
Did the promise of real change represented by a needed & necessary
almost clean sweep of the 'Old Guard' out of party officer ranks,
which was a vast improvement, but was not complete!
Or are the 'Old Guard Elite' using some internal tricks to fight back
& possibly reassert themselves into prominence?
Will all those positive changes represented by new GOP Party Chairman
Alex Mooney, and the new leadership be torpedoed in their reform
Are the old inner circle 'elites' trying to re-create the Get Along
to Go Along GOP 'Democrat lite' which has proven to be so effective
over the last 40 plus years fighting over token scraps?!?
The jury is presently out, but some of the results may well be coming
in for a clue which way the wind is blowing now! Either these
potential By-Law changes will allow the GOP to get their house in
order, to move forward, or perpetuate the 'old boy' dysfunctional
party we have come to expect in Maryland?
