Almost 250 years ago, brave men wrote the following:
...That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Our nations founders pledged their all. Many gave all - their wealth, their homes, their families, their lives. They focused on a better country for their children and children’s children.
Some politicians believe power over-rides constitutional rights or that government schools should have final say over our children. Political discourse means selecting government-approved winners and government-condemned losers. From county to federal, public agencies seemingly exist only to grow larger and spend more.
'What can we do about it’? We only one recourse - at the polls. We must find good candidates who are willing to speak the truth and follow our State and Federal constitutions. All of us need to be brave in the face of attacks on our belief system from the Left. AND, most importantly, we need to vote those good men and women into elected office. Else, we won’t have another 250 years of the freedom we declared on July 4, 1776.
CHATHAM REPUBLICAN PARTY
Chatham County Republicans acknowledge our God-given rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. To that end, we are dedicated to protecting the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the NC State Constitution.
We support the right to freedom of religion, speech and self-defense. We recognize that property rights and capitalism have improved the human condition. We support free and fair elections where every citizen entitled to vote gets one full vote and has confidence in the election process.
We support candidates who strive to uphold our platform of fostering job creation, championing education excellence, balancing environmental stewardship with property rights and economic growth, and holding elected officials accountable to Chatham County residents.
We understand that sometimes compromise is needed to advance our vision of governance, but we expect our elected officials to keep their election promises to voters.
