RESOLUTION - Smoking Ban 2
We 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,
that good government is based on the individual, thus each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized,
that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none,
that when property rights are minimized all our other rights are in jeopardy, and
that the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
Therefore, be it resolved:
that two Councilmen for the City of Florence elected with our party's nomination 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 undermined the Party's credibility as a vehicle for translating its ideals into principles of government, and
it is further resolved that Frank Brand and Glynn Willis are hereby requested not to desert the fundamental principles of this party and to withdraw their sponsorship of the compulsory smoking ban on private property and their procedural vote against the voters having any say in the matter, and
it is 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.
