KCGOPCC Resolution Seeks Purity

Seems some members of the Kootenai County GOP Central Committee aren't satisfied that real Republicans are running in their primaries. On Tuesday, the local Elephants will consider a proposed resolution calling for an ad hoc committee to screen primary candidates to ensure that they're really Republicans (and not Libertarians, Ron Paulers and Constitutionalists, like more than a few precinct committeemen). The resolution reads in part:

  • Whereas, Promotion of the Republican philosophy cannot be done while simultaneously supporting candidates who oppose the Republican philosophy; and
  • Whereas, The KCRCC has failed to show any concern regarding whether or not a Republican candidate has promoted or opposed the Republican philosophy; and
  • Whereas, This failure has created a vacuum that has been filled by special interest grops and the meida, who often obfuscate a candidate's philosophy; and blah, blah, blah (full resolution here).


Question: What do you think of the resolution's attempt to screen GOP primary candidates?
