I did yard work, delivered newspapers, bought a used car with the money I earned doing that, washed dishes, bought a new car with the money I earned doing that, graduated in the upper 20% of my high school class, got an ACT score of 24, got accepted by UIC, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, and delivered mail, bought two new cars and paid my college expenses with the money I earned doing that, and graduated debt-free from NIU in 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE.

— QUESTION: What could have slowed down if not stopped the Democrat invasion, infiltration, infestation, conquering, and inevitable destruction of DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton? ANSWER: Abuse of the Republican Party’s “Big Tent” policy. Far too many leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the nine DuPage County Republican township party organizations have failed/refused to defend or advance the Republican Party platform. Far too many have painted themselves as being “Democrat Lite.” Far too many talk and/or act like they were/are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, or RINOs. Far too many of them have been/are anti-conservative if not conservative-haters. Far too many of them reject the individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. Far too many of them destroy those like me a) who refuse to be manipulated or dominated by them, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I should write a book about them. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I have been the DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican Committeeman since 1999. In 2004, the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) rudely fired me as its webmaster and rudely ended my bid to serve as its Treasurer. In 2010, MTRO again rudely fired me as its webmaster. MTRO leaders have publicly insulted me at MTRO events. MTRO leaders have frequently hinted/implied/argued/shouted that what I have done as a precinct committeeman since 1999 and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000 and what I did as the following caused Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct to lose elections a) the MTRO webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, b) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, c) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, d) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, and e) as an Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee member in 2008 has. – Dave Diersen

I would focus on those who a) ended my TAPROOT chairmanship in 2012, b) ended my ICRC Steering Committee membership in 2007, c) almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, and/or d) took other adverse actions against me.
