That government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual's creative ability can flourish. That government activities should be limited to those things which people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well themselves. That the most effective government is government closest to the people.That those who cannot provide for themselves would be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
That the preservation of our Nation and the security of our citizens depend on the Constitution, the laws and courts, and that respect for them is the responsibility of every individual.That government is responsible for national defense and that only a strong America can remain a free America. That it is absolutely essential to maintain a strong national defense posture in order that we may at all times negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness, in our continuing efforts toward world peace and friendship.
That the government is accountable for maintaining sound money and responsible economy. Individual rights, liberties and properties are continually eroded when citizens are oppressed by executive taxation, inflation, government waste and over-regulation.

I hope all of you had a wonderful summer but now that summer is winding down, it’s political crunch time! With less than 60 days left until the election, we all have our work to do . . . working on the GOTV by calling and walking precincts AND supporting our chosen candidates with our time, talent and treasure. I know I’m preaching to the choir, but we all know that Republican women are the backbone of any candidate’s campaign! Please pick one, two or three to get behind and do as much as you’re able to so we all can savor the sweet victory of success in November. Our local, State, and Federal Republicans are counting on us.
I feel that I must say a few things about our local Primary election this past June. There was a lot of bad feelings about how things may or may not have been handled, conversations and confrontations that cut deep, and decisions made that pitted one group against another. I know there is still a lot of contentiousness among so many and that is NOT good for the DCGOP. Let’s get over it and come together and work together and play together! If not, our County and State will continue to see splits and fractions that might not be repairable if we continue down this road. I’m even seeing elected officials saying disparaging comments about other elected officials at public events! And social media is another area where we should make sure we watch what words we are saying about other Republicans where so many others can see them. It’s just food for fodder for the Democrats. Look, if we’re not going to work together as a unit, we’re not going to win this election or any other one and the Dems will take over. And another point, none of us will agree with our family, friends or fellow Republicans 100% of the time. And I know some of you don’t believe this, but as William F. Buckley once said, “As conservatives, we are better off winning with someone who agrees with us 80% of the time than losing with an ideologically pure but unelectable candidate.” WE MUST UNITE NOW! Okay, I’ll step down off my soapbox!
Many of you joined us in July for our 60th Birthday Celebration and Mystery Dinner Theater. I think it’s safe to say that by the raucous laughter, a good time was had by all!
