Summer Events on the Roll
What a fantastic year to be a Republican! The primary election is over and we want to congratulate all our winning candidates. Now the real work begins.
Campaign office will open in August
We have our 2014 campaign office identified. And we will be opening, perhaps on a slightly limited schedule in August and get much busier as we approach the November election.
Precinct Committee Person elections
The Linn County website has posted a list of the PCP winners for those who filed in advance. Those who received less than the required 3 vote minimum are strongly encouraged to fill out an appointed PCP form and submit it to our PO Box. 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.
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 tat 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
To sit home, read one's favorite paper, and scoff at the misdeeds of the men who do things is easy, but it is markedly ineffective. It is what evil men count upon the good men's doing.
