RESOLUTION - Property Rights
Whereas Republicans believe the proper function of government is to do for the people only those things that must be done. or that cannot be done as well by individuals; and
Whereas be believe that good government is based on the individual, thus each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized; and
Whereas Republicans believe that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none; and
Whereas Republicans believe that when property rights are minimized all our other rights are in jeopardy; and
Whereas we as Republicans believe that the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
Therefore, be it resolved that the City Council of Florence have acted inconsistently with the Republican view of the proper function of government, disrespected the individual’s freedom & responsibility, weakened property rights, denied equal rights to citizens; and
Be it further resolved that this council has deserted the fundamental principles of the United States constitution with their sponsorship of the compulsory smoking ban on private property and their procedural vote against the voters having any say in the matter; and
Be it further resolved that all Council members, City or County, are hereby requested to repeal or vote against, as the case may be, any law which forbids a property owner from allowing any particular activity otherwise lawful.
