Republican Party

About

The Republican Party, or “Grand Old Party”, is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States. Founded by anti-slavery activists in 1854, it dominated national politics for most of the period from 1860 to 1932.

Currently, In the 113th Congress, the Republican Party holds a majority of seats in the House of Representatives, and a minority in the Senate. The party also holds a majority of governorships, as well as the majority of state legislatures. There have been eighteen Republican presidents.

Thurston County is located in the State of Washington. It is named after Samuel R. Thurston, the Oregon Territory’s first delegate to Congress. Its population is approximately 252,264. The county seat is in Olympia, the state capital, and also the county’s largest city.

Thurston was created out of Lewis County by the government of Oregon Territory on January 12, 1852. At that time, it covered all of the Puget Sound region and the Olympic Peninsula. On December 22 of the same year, Pierce, King, Island, and Jefferson Counties were split off from Thurston County.

Issues

WE BELIEVE…

That free enterprise is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice.

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities, and should assume responsibilities as citizens in a free society.

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government.

That Governments exist to preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations.

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense, and a humble foreign policy.

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers, is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.
