Welcome and thanks for checking out the website of the Hood River County Republican Party! We are active and working hard to make Hood River County and Oregon a place where the economy thrives, citizens enjoy liberty, and all Oregonians are proud to call our "The Beaver State" home.
We face many challenges but we also have many advantages- from abundant natural resources, a creative and hard working labor force, and rich traditions. We believe all of these are at their best when citizens manage them responsibly.
Join us and help make Oregon the engine of prosperity and freedom in America!
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.
