Do political committees serve any useful purpose anymore?

If you are on a political committee and you don't do any of the following:

1) Gather signatures for petitions (25 or more)

2) Bring financial assistance for your party

3) Support the endorsed candidate (s)

4) Properly vet potential candidates

5) Give financial assistance and actually work for the endorsed candidate (S).

What business do you have being on the committee? Other than to give yourself some false sense of power. If you arn't doing at least 4 of the 5 listed above, you are irrelevant.You know who you are. Enjoy your free dinner.

They are on the committee for one reason, all you have to do is look at who is on the committee, two judges wives, several elected officials, so when it is an election year they have a vested interest in then they are active other wise its sit back and relax. One judges wife, got four signatures on her petitions, her son and some of his friends. But you can bet if her husband was up for election she would be right out there getting signatures.

They can't even come up with poll watchers for a man who has served the community for 42 years. These dipchits endorsed him, now they won't work for him. They are all useless

Why do you think Dave "Luvy" Mc Manus" didn't go to the Republicans. Because he knew how useless they were.He nearly beat the 42 incumbent in the primary within ten votes. Mc Manus WILL win the general election because he's not counting on the Republican party to do his work for him. Again chair women Rowan loses another election. Because she is soooooo smart?

You need to get your own people Mr Richards. The Republican Party and it's leaders are useless, lazy, cheap and most important of all. They are stupid.
