Greenville GOP in Need of Volunteers?

The Conservativist has been tipped off on a recent struggle in the Greenville County GOP.

It appears the Greenville GOP is struggling to find volunteers to man their headquarters.  A recent call to the headquarters as of yesterday directed you to the voice mail box of the Victory 2008 campaign.

I realize we all have day jobs, but I find it really hard to believe that one of the largest Republican delegations in the state cannot find the resources (volunteers) to staff their headquarters.

After making a call to Rick Beltram concerning this revelation, he now understood why the Spartanburg County office had been getting several calls from Greenville County residents wanting McCain/Palin materials.

Hopefully the Greenville GOP will get the help needed for the long fight over the next 60 days.

UPDATE:
I have since learned that there was a break down in communication between the county party and Duke Energy over the turn over process of the facility to Victory 2008.

UPDATE 2:
Rick Beltram informed me today that the Spartanburg GOP will have McCain/Palin materials in stock on Thursday.  They will be offered at a nominal fee.

    Sounds too much like a community organizer’s job! Greenville Repubs are full of talk and low on working for free! The end of the republican party is near!

    SUBJECT: Nickel and Dime for Liberty! PLEASE COPY AND PASTE AND SEND TO EVERYONE THAT YOU KNOW, LETS GET A CONSERVATIVE INTO THE US SENATE!!

    BODY: We are all aware that economic times are hard right now. We also know that letting the same tax, spend, and regulate politicians get elected will only serve to make things worse. So what can a financially strapped citizen do to make a difference in the 2008 election cycle?
     
    We won’t ask you for $500 or $250 not a $100, and not even $50. That still sounds like a lot right now. But here in South Carolina, we have a chance to make a difference by getting an individual who is committed to individual rights and free markets elected to the U. S. Senate. His name is Bob Conley, an engineer and commercial pilot, who is making all the right moves in his bid to win in November.
     
    Bob has plans that would take the power of educating children out of the hands of politicians and bureaucrats and put it back where it belongs, in the hands of the parents. The plan would also foster competition within the existing system which would lower cost and taxes. The plan would also wean many folks off publicly subsidized education further lowering our tax burden. 
     
    Bob Conley also plans to comb the books for unnecessary or burdensome legislation and or regulations and bring them to the floor of the Senate for repeal, while at the same time opposing new unnecessary legislation. If you live in South Carolina you know there are not many folks like that in the legislature right now, certainly not Mr. Conley’s opponent who hasn’t met a tax or regulation he doesn’t like; and his opponent’s campaign war chest is loaded with special interest dollars (over $3,500,000!!).
     
    All that we ask from you is a small investment in liberty of $5 or $10 (Twenty if you can spare it), to Bob Conley’s campaign. Bob is working tirelessly, going door to door, attending meetings, and making media appearances, he has put everything else aside to campaign full time until November 4th.
     
    But like every viable campaign Bob needs to buy signs, print campaign literature, produce TV and Radio ads and buy airtime on TV and radio in order to broadcast our message of individual rights and economic freedom. He’s raised around $15,000 thus far but he needs to raise more than that to get the message out in South Carolina’s expensive media market. 
     
    Please we ask that you take a minute and visit Bob Conley’s website (http://www.FlatTopBob.com ) and make your contribution of $5-10; you won’t believe how much it will do and how much more it will be appreciated. This message will reach thousands of freedom loving South Carolinians. If we all do our small part we could be celebrating a very significant victory in November.
