What are the goals for GRIP — The Government Reform & Integrity Platform?
The GRIP Steering Committee will finalize a set of goals as part of an overall plan.
These goals were established initially when GRIP was born out of an online TV broadcast by www.LawlessAmerica.com….
GRIP needs a Plan
First, a plan is essential. It’s hard to get somewhere if you don’t know where you are going.
So, GRIP will be operated with a plan. That plan will be initially developed by the GRIP Steering Committee, and then the plan will be modified in the future by the Governing Board of the GRIP Coalition.
The initial question that was asked when GRIP was created was: How can we minimize the challenges, capitalize on our individual passions, take advantage of general unhappiness with government, and actually accomplish something?
The basic philosophy behind GRIP is that GRIP will be neutral — non-partisan. GRIP will serve as an umbrella organization for all the many groups, associations, websites, and bloggers who are battling various aspects of government corruption.
GRIP may include in its membership associations on both sides of a Constitutional issue. While we personally are likely to have a position on such issues, GRIP will not because GRIP needs to appeal to every American. We can’t limit our reach to only one party or one special interest group because our only hope to save America is to reach millions of people. It would be unwise to limit our universe of prospective supporters (GRIPPERS). Our challenge is monumental in trying to reach enough Americans to become a force.
The initial set of goals established at the Government Corruption Crisis Conference in 2011 were the following:
Work to minimize dishonesty and corruption in federal, state, and local government.
Minimize judicial corruption, government corruption and violation of the Constitution, laws, and rules by government officials in America.
Organize well enough to become an undeniable non-partisan political force. Generate at least 1,000,000 supporters.
Take matters into our own hands rather than try to get dishonest people to act.
The GRIP Steering Committee will now discuss these and other goals, and then the final goals will be established.
