As we tend to the early year chores of summarizing our activities, cpidaho.org wishes to draw our readers’ attention to the attached table. It shows the long term work commitment to keep the CP-Idaho website current with fresh content posted each and every month.
Our detractors in the national CP may call it what they will, but the evidence (our “organized” data) indicates that cpidaho.org remains engaging.
Long term, dating back to July 2013 (when the new team began to manage our state party website for real) cpidaho.org has averaged–4,445 website visits; 16, 874 pages of content viewed; with online visit times at 3.40 minutes per visit–each and every month.
Sure. This work–posting new content each month over the past five years–has been drudgery at times. But, the current cpidaho.org management has determined to do it; and we continue to do it.
Wholly unlike the former undependable and intermittent website management, the current staff has not shied from wordsmith work. Here, to make our point, we would quote “Silent Cal”…President Calvin Coolidge (1923-1929):
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.”
And sure, as well. We too often hear beaucoup–from the so-called constitutionalists, from the erstwhile patriots, from the nettlesome fundamentalists. We hear a torrent of their claims to amount and account for something. And after all this time, we still don’t find it so.
Remarkably, for all their proclaimed talents and what they’re “gonna” do, we never actually see any works by them. It is obvious they lack the backbone and the intestinal fortitude–the persistence–to achieve anything tangible.
Shamefully, the national CP has dispatched its erratic local hirelings (e.g. the former so-called state website manager and the false state contact), we are led to understand. The intent is to undermine Idaho’s state affiliate–and in our view, it is a classic phishing scheme, an attempt at identity theft which smacks of little more than a demand made by ne’er do’s to take something for nothing.
Meanwhile, cpidaho.org continues month after month laying it out–in graphs, charts, tables and commentary. Much to the chagrin of the national CP, cpidaho.org dares to stand in strong opposition to the ethically questionable designs and actions of the national executive committee. A spade is a spade, and we have no problem calling it thus.
For that reason, CP-Idaho finds itself in the crosshairs of those who envy us, but who have done little if any significant work. And the monthly table of total new posts indicates as much…a before and after look, if you will.
Our state website cpidaho.org refuses to abandon or to disfranchise Idaho’s registered voters, despite the national CP’s designs. Further, we challenge those who so covet control of our nearly 3,000 registered CP-Idaho voters to demonstrate their own works. In our view, we say those who covet us have been unwilling to do the persistent heavy lift work required to obtain this large block of registered voters. And so, now by covert stealth, they seek to take something they did nothing to nurture. That is, for lack of better, an entitlement mentality.
In any case, Scriptures are quite plain…you will know them by their fruits. [Matthew 7:15-20]…they come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
cpidaho.org–impoverished and very often alone–has stood our ground as shepherd over our registered voter base. That base has grown, prospered. Our works, our fruits, are evident…just as evident as our persistence.
