Life and Liberty Resolution

Whereas, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is at the heart of our American ideals in this constitutional Republic, and

Whereas, federal court judges threaten this Republic through activist reinterpretation of its Constitution and have legalized the deaths of over forty million unborn Americans;

Therefore, Be it resolved that, it shall be the position of the Republican Party and its elected officials to support the passage of legislation, which would serve to reinforce the 10th amendment to our U.S. Constitution and negate the effect of Roe v Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life.

Border Security and Immigration Resolution

Whereas, a nation without secure borders is no nation at all; it makes no sense to fight terrorists abroad when our own front door is left unlocked, and

Whereas, the current system is incoherent, unenforced, and unfair, and current reform proposals would allow up to 60 million more immigrants into our country; and as long as illegal immigrants think that their illegality will be rewarded, the incentive to enter the U.S. illegally will remain strong.

Whereas, immigrants from all countries should face the same rules and waiting periods, and immigration officials should track visa holders and deport anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law, such as a number of 9/11 terrorists who had expired visas.

Therefore, Be it resolved that, it is the position of the Republican Party and its elected officials, that we must secure our borders now through the following steps:

  • First and foremost, physically secure our borders and coastlines.
  • Second, fully enforce existing visa rules. 
  • Third, oppose amnesty in any form. 
  • Fourth, adopt English as the official language of the United States.

Oath of Office Resolution

Whereas, the people, through the Union of free and independent states of the United States of America, ordained, established and ratified the Federal Constitution as the “supreme law of the land” and

Whereas, the People are expected to enforce that Constitution and hold all public servants accountable to their oath of office to obey said Constitution, in the case of city, county and state public servants, the state constitution as well, and

Whereas, the oath of office implies an understanding of our U.S. Constitution and (except for federally elected positions) each state constitution as well,

Therefore, Be it resolved that, the Republican Party and all of its members will support, defend, enforce and obey the literal meaning and original intent of the U.S. Constitution and, in the case of city, county and state public servants, of their state constitution as well.

Debt and Taxes Resolution

Whereas, conservatives have always supported low taxes and low spending and have endeavored to enforce the principles of limited government as written in the U.S. Constitution,

Whereas, the U.S.A. is nine trillion dollars in debt as a nation and that mounting government debt endangers the financial future of our children and grandchildren, and

Whereas, the Federal Reserve, a private central bank run by unelected officials, fosters runaway debt by increasing the money supply at will — making each dollar in our pockets and bank accounts worth less, and

Whereas, our economy and our very independence as a nation is increasingly in the hands of foreign governments such as China and Saudi Arabia, because their central banks also finance our runaway spending, and

Therefore, Be it resolved that, it is the position of the Republican Party that the United States of America cannot continue to allow private central banks, wasteful agencies, lobbyists, and governments collecting foreign aid, to dictate the size of our ballooning budget, and that spending must once again be prioritized and specified as directed by our U.S. Constitution.

Privacy and Identification (I.D.) Resolution

Whereas, the biggest threat to citizens’ privacy is the government, through federally-created legislation mandating use of the standard identifier (currently the social security number) in the private sector via financial institutions and in the public sector through government agencies not involved with the administration of the Social Security system, and

Whereas, the government should protect medical privacy but under so-called “medical privacy protection” rules, insurance companies and other entities have access to your personal medical information, and

Whereas, the U.S. Department of Defense uses the social security number rather than a service I.D. number as an identifier for Active Duty, Reserve, and retired military members, in violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, and

Whereas, all states are now preparing to issue new driver’s licenses embedded with “standard identifier” data — a defacto national I.D., and

Whereas, the USA Patriot Act as originally proposed, expanded the federal government’s ability to use wiretaps without judicial oversight; allowed nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location, nor subject to any local judicial oversight; made it far easier for the government to monitor private internet usage; authorized “sneak and peek” warrants enabling federal authorities to search a person’s home, office, or personal property without that person’s knowledge; and required libraries and bookstores to turn over records of books read by their patrons,

Therefore, Be it resolved that, it shall be the position of the Republican Party, its members and elected officials must work to dramatically limit the ability of governments to collect and store data regarding citizens’ personal matters, and must stop the move toward a national ID card system.

Precinct 368-cor Caucus 2008

1 Comment

      WE had a chance to witness the high turn out of straw poll voters and like most “grassroots” efforts it was not perfect and maybe even disorganized however it was very effective. In our group it was suggested for us to maybe just go into having Primaries but below are some links for the State of Colorado explaining the importance of the election Caucus and as we witnessed it weeds out weaker Candidates that ran but without having the “guts” that it takes to tough out the electorate process. For example, right after the many Caucus events around the country even though candidate Mitt Romney had a great majority of votes in many states to include Colorado he jumped ship and decided not to run showing no determination to go out to the finish line. So, here the Caucus system served to weed out for lack of a better word Candidates that showed no true dedication to represent the interests of the People and Nation and definetely not healthy to have them later give up right before a final election race.  As you study links below see that for El Paso County Mitt Romney had 6,507 votes at the Caucus, MCCain 1,649, Huckabee 1,870, and Ron Paul of Texas 991.

     Many are dissapointed and specially in our precinct group that favored Mitt Romney over McCain for the later tried to revive the infamous amnesty bill that would later lead to overpopulation, over use of State resources such as water etc. Our economy does indeed work naturally with visas, special stays etc, however some special interests hope that down the road the overwhelming numbers will later help form like a North American Union something similar to the European Union in which there are no “real borders” between countries in the group and free flow of people. This is great for bureaucracies, Corporations, banks, and Money Power people but not for the American People who have already a Nation of checks and balances and a Constitution that forbids merging our government with others specially by special interests who do not understand the importance of a Nation of the Peopleby the People and for The People and and not one just for the banks and special interests.  In our Constitution the words, “We the People” is the part that places the Constraints of us on the government and that curtails excess spending, inimical laws that hurt us as a People and that we and our children matter not just profit adventurists.  The  NAU will so  form a “partnership” but as in Europe it became a merger with each country here like Canada/Mexico/United States having appointed officials instead of elected officials as we do today with our Electorate. So, indeed we are concerned specially as we read in our newspaper the Gazette that water will be like the next oil problem for by the year 2012 or sooner that prices for water will go through the roof and many may not even be able to afford their homes between water and oil prices.  Also add that “deficit” spending is like a back door paying of Taxes for that bill will become due and if we default our Nation will go to those holding our devalued paper currency.  So, please keep researching your candidates available and what their “Platform” policies truly are for “socialism” may not be too far ahead of us with so much spending and programs that are bankrupting our Treasury. Here are some research links and please remember that this is all volunteer for our neighborhoods future. Thank you everyone for attending and participating and even improvising when volunteers of years past could not attend this year. Our area is still fairly new and that is why it seems to still be in the developing stages.
