Illinois GOP Convention — We Need Your Help!

Convention

As you know, both political parties in Illinois decide the content of their political platforms at their state conventions, which are held every four years. This year in Illinois, the Convention is being held in Peoria on Saturday, May 21st.

Rumor has it, that the platform may be altered to redefine the traditional marriage statement. Language could be inserted that would redefine marriage to reflect more of a nuclear family, rather than the traditional language. The definition of a nuclear family could be open to include any group of persons, regardless of sex, “sexual orientation,” or even numbers of partners.

THERE IS A WAY FOR YOU TO BECOME INVOLVED TO SAVE THE EXISTING PLATFORM! BECOME A DELEGATE TO THE STATE CONVENTION!  

This requires your county chairman to appoint you as a delegate. The appointment as a delegate gives you voting rights.

The platform committee must present their platform to the delegates for approval. This then is your chance. If any language has been inserted or weakened on any issue in the platform, Vote No to accept the changes.

This platform is YOUR platform! A lot of hard work over years has resulted in a Republican platform that includes commitments to both protecting the lives of the unborn and to defending true marriage. This is the platform that separates us from the Democrats.

All the states are developing their platforms. When the national Republican Convention convenes to nominate the president and vice-president of the Republican Party, the platform on a national level will also be approved. The national committee will be looking at state platforms to see what the people in each state approve.

This is YOUR opportunity to have an influence at a state level as well as a national level. It requires one day out of your busy schedule to become a delegate, travel to Peoria, and Vote.

Take ACTION:  If you are interested, call your local County Republican Chairman to ask to be appointed as a delegate. You can find the list of County Chairmen at the ILGOP website.

Don’t let marriage be redefined! Don’t let the RINOs run roughshod over conservatives yet again. The ball is in our court!

All delegates must be submitted to be approved by May 9th.
