2016 Campaign Office is OPEN !
2016 promises to be a historic year at the Local, State and Federal level. We have candidate materials at our 2016 Office.
It's all about the voters
Every two years we open a temporary office to support Republican candidates. We are friendly and frugal, helping candidates get to know the voters of Linn County and helping the voters of Linn County to know their candidate options. We answer questions and if we don't have the answer immediately, we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Signs, Signs, Signs
On any given day, we have signs for nearly all the Republican candidates on the ballot. Our inventory changes rapidly.
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
When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
