The emperor responded, "We are pleased to welcome you."

According to the White House pool report, "The president told the Emperor that the last time they met, he did not have any gray hairs."

Are you living in a Constitution Free Zone?

It's sad to see what's been happening with our government in recent years. Slowly, but surely, our rights and freedoms are being taken away. We thought our Constitution would protect us.

Does Buncombe County have three Republicans on the Board of County Commissioners?

"I can not believe my eyes. David King Republican and Joe Belcher, Republican county commissioners at the re election kick off for Ellen Frost democrat. Have you guys forgotten that we have our own Christina Merrill For Commissioner, REPUBLICAN that the last election was stolen from. She needs all of the republicans support. She is not a thief and cares about our county. I am disappointed in what I am seeing here to say the least."

Republican Principles

Republican Principles

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."
- The Declaration of Independence, July 2nd 1776

Republican Party Principles

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 our 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.
