Dear Fellow GOP Members:
It is time to renew your membership with the FCGOP. A form will be available at our next County Program on 27 January 2011 for you to complete. Any sustaining members that are not present at that meeting will have a follow-up call or email sent to ensure that they have an opportunity to renew their membership. We need your support as we head towards Precinct Reorganization and County Convention. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Next, mark your calendar now for the first fundraiser of 2011 for the FCGOP. It is going to take place between 11am-2pm on Tuesday, 15 February 2011 at Roger’s BBQ. We will have chicken bog plates to prepare and deliver so we need volunteers to make this a success. We hope to have tickets for this event at the program this Thursday. Each plate will be $7. If you eat-in, Roger’s will provide complementary tea and water. I would ask for your help to spread the word to anyone you think would like to eat lunch that day. They can contact me via email or phone (numbers below) for more information.
As soon as a flyer is ready, we will be working on posting around town to ensure that we have a great turnout that day. We need to sell a minimum of 1000 plates. Please mark your calendars so you can help us make this day a huge success for the FCGOP.
Thanks for your time.

I'm 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.
I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon.
If I can seek opportunity, not security,
I want to take the calculated risk to dream and
build, to fail and to succeed.
I refused to barter incentive for dole.
I prefer the challenges of life to
guaranteed security, the thrill of fulfillment
to the state of calm utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence,
nor my dignity for a handout.
I will never cower before any master,
save my God.
It is my heritage to stand erect,
proud and unafraid.
To think and act for myself, enjoy the
benefit of my creations; to face the whole world
boldly and say, "I am a free American."
