I have been a Republican my entire life and a member of the Baker County Republican Party the last several years. I have watched with great pride as our local party grew from about 10 people at meetings to an average of 35-40.
I was surprised and disappointed that Joel Addington insinuated that we are “divisive” and “extreme” based on the opinion of one person. As with any group, political or otherwise, people come and go for a variety of reasons personal and professional.
Republicans believe in school prayer, a strong national defense, limited government and a balanced budget. We believe that government at all levels should not squander tax dollars. We believe Omamacare should be repealed and our border should be closed. We believe that life begins at conception and that we have a constitutional right to bear arms.
