Legislature is still in Session
During the 2015 Legislative session, please do what you can to contribute your comments to you legislators on the bills that are of interest to you. When you give you feedback, it is important to make constructive suggestions wherever possible if you are in opposition to all or part of a bill. It may not possible for our Senators and Representatives to stop every bill you oppose. In some instances, the amendments you suggest may make a great improvement in a bill that is going to be passed with an opposition majority.
Precinct Committee Person Positions OPEN
We have many open positions and would like to have as many people as possible as Precinct Committee persons, but all are welcome as volunteers. Since we have past the May 2014 election, remaining PCP positions are appointed.
We meet regularly at Pop's Branding Iron, typically on the first Wednesday of the month at 6 pm, earlier if you want to socialize and catch up with old friends. Please check the Events page for possible exceptions around holidays.
I am a Republican Because..
I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all; regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.
I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve out national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
Article of interest: America's Ruling Class
Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state.
