We Got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your Service 2016.


As a Contributor for Virginia Right, I usually begin my pieces with a quote from an emcee. It shows my extensive knowledge and catalog of Hip Hop music. The above referenced song by my Hip Hop Hero Q-Tip begins with a sample which exclaims, “It’s coming down hard We GOT TO GET OUR S*** TO-GETHER!!!!!


Crisis, crunch time, use it or lose it. It is apparent to me that America is at a fork in the road. We have to make a calculated decision quickly. And over the last week, I have had several conversations with several people. Republicans, Libertarians and Independents. I am Black, however, I am not a Democrat. I honestly believe that I am trapped somewhere in between the Libertarian and Republican parties. Like a nomadic wasteland. And sometimes I feel alone.


I have been speaking to my friends, political leaders, activists, candidates for office and co workers. I have been asking the same question of all these people. “Where do we go from here?”


Option One: With all the RINO (Republican in name only) Republicans who “say” they are conservative but “vote” in support of “liberal” and “leftist” policies our first choice is to take over the Republican Party from the ground up.


Option Two: All the “displaced” or “misplaced” Republicans and fed up enlightened Democrats (of any) can join the Libertarian Party. Former Vice Chair and Sister in the struggle Juanita Walton Billings suggests a complete overhaul of the Libertarian Party of Virginia. She has a detailed written plan she has been sharing with activists such as myself, Donna and Anthony Grebas and Elwood “Sandy” Sanders.


Option Three: Take Over a smaller party for the name. Donna and Anthony Grebas were the first Libertarians to shake my hand when I attended my first meeting of the Patrick Henry Supper Club in Richmond,  Virginia. I will never, as long as I live, forget the handshake that Donna gave me. She told me, “Welcome dear!!!” And gave me a very firm once up, once down handshake. All these years later, Auntie Donna and Uncle Tony as my children call them or “Ma” as my wife Mandy calls her are our family away from the rest of our family in New Jersey, Maryland and Texas. Donna was the former 4th CD Chair of the LPVA and Tony was at one time the Volunteer backbone of the Chesterfield County Libertarians community outreach. Donna’s suggestion with her knowledge is for defectors from the LP and the GOP we go to take over the Constitution Party.


Option Four: Brought by Major Mike Webb from Arlington, Virginia. The Major is in deep legal and spiritual warfare with Governor Ralph Northam (known to Libertarians, Republicans and Patriots as King Ralph or Governor Northern Ham) and Attorney General  Mark Herring with several Covid-19 cases in opposition to the massive government overreach. Currently, Major Webb is running for the Arlington School Board. Because of his social media onslaught (continued posting of facts, figures and evidence of his perspective) all…..and I do mean all of his social media accounts have been permanently deleted with no ability to appeal.  Major Mike suggests we create a loose group of supporters and run independent candidates across the Commonwealth leaving no district uncontested (the sucka s*** that both the Libertarian and Republican parties do when they do not locate a candidate. It is like watching a sports game with no opposing teams…..ridiculous) until we create or move into a new political home.


Option Five: In my opinion with my political nerdy-ness, my Political Science degree from Hampton University, my community activism, my grassroots connections, my business planning /communication experience and my love of God, America and family……I think we need to establish a new Party from the ground up.


Option Six: My long time brother, self made Entrepreneur and Co Host of Talks Over Drinks Markel Prines and my Truck Driver Mentor La-Brian Johnson both say we need to totally abandon politics altogether and build a strong business community to unite and tackle our problems ourselves.


I would be interested to hear what you suggest. But, sadly I know….We got to get our s*** together.

  1. I respect greatly Corey’s travails throughout the Libertarian Party and GOP. I share many of his concerns.

    But a new party is a monumental task in the USA. There are on occasions single state parties that have been successful: The Farmer-Labor party was so successful in Minnesota when there was a merger of the Farmer-Labor with the Dems, the state party is still called the Democratic/Farmer/Labor Party or DFL. (The Farmer-Labor Party was actually the larger of the two!) The North Dakota Dems merged with a party called the Non-partisan League that had been less successful n their state but was crowding the liberal lane in the state. There has also been several parties in New York State: Liberal, Conservative (the brother of my boyhood hero, William F. Buckley was elected to the US Senate on the Conservative line in a three way race in 1976), there was formerly the American Labor Party that had as its most prominent politician the very radical Rep. Vito Marcantonio was a NY representative in Congress for a number of years. However, I think Virginia is not well suited for third parties.

    There is a Republican Liberty Caucus, started by a number of people including Ron Paul, and some find succor there. I have recommended my usual remedy: Seek the face of the Lord Jesus. Where do I go? Maybe you will be sent to a political group to glorify and magnify Jesus Christ first and do politics second.

    Hope this is helpful to Corey.

    Along the lines of option 4, I have come to believe that the conservative movement needs its high rollers to look into 2 major actions to help us get back in the game.
    1) We need to develop an investment tool along the line of a hedge fund and/or angle investment group that along with making a return on the investor’s money would do two things. 1.1) Invest in businesses that lean conservative, giving them a boost to get their services and products out to the masses. 1.2) Build our own server farm to host not only our social media and other media, but it would also host other media producers. This would provide the ultimate protection against our message being taken down.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
