Welcome to the website for the
Jefferson County Republican Men's Club.

Our group meets every Monday at 11:30.  Admission is $5 and you can get a great lunch off of the menu.  Our goal is to learn about America's History, Heritage, Founding and Freedom Documents; The Declaration of Independence, U. S. Constitution and its incredibly important Bill of Rights. 

We also hear from our appointed, hired and elected public officials, and the public policy issues, events and personalities of the day that often so profoundly influence our freedoms, standards of living and quality of life.  There are several books we suggest in the reading list that will increase your personal political power, understanding and clout, through increasing your political literacy, and deepening your knowledge of our country's founding and core beliefs. Send an email to president@jrmc2.com if you want to receive our weekly notice about our upcoming speakers. You may also self-register with the form at the bottom of the left column.

What's President Biden done wrong? Let us count them
by Ed Tomlinson


American Creed
I am an American.  I support the principles of America's Founders, with a steadfast devotion to limited government, lower taxes, individual freedom, and personal responsibility. 
I cherish the Declaration of Independence--"all men... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" and that "all men are created equal."
I support self-governing people, free enterprise, free markets, a strong national defense, private property, rule of law, and secure borders. I know, love and defend the United States Constitution and its incredibly important Bill of Rights. I pledge to do all within my considerable personal power to protect this land that I love, and its people.
I declare a faithful, "firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence," and in support of this Creed: "We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor."

America's Peace Flag

Did you know that our commonly used American flag is designated as our war flag?  A civilian flag was also developed early in our history. Read the fascinating history of this obscure flag here.

Are we going the way of Rome?

Lawrence W. Reed, President, Mackinac Center (now president, Foundation for Economic Education) wrote an essay asking the question "Are we going the way of Rome?" He outlines similarities in the history of Rome and current conditions in the United States.  Read it here.

What We can learn from "Rules for Radicals

How the Tea Party can save America
by Trevor Louden

Many Tea Partiers and American patriots understand that the fate of the United States of America hangs in the balance. No melodrama here. If the US loses its position as the world’s number one military super power, another country, or countries, will take its place. Realistically, that can only be Russia or China, or more likely, an alliance of Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Vietnam and whoever ever else climbs aboard.

As the U.S. Dollar slowly sinks and America’s prestige and power goes with it, the “Evil Axis” grows bolder. But why should I care? I’m safe aren’t I? Way down at the bottom of the South Pacific, in New Zealand. Well, maybe not so safe. China is steadily advancing through the Pacific. It now has several footholds in our region, particularly in Fiji, which is my country’s nearest major island neighbor. To any thinking Aussie or Kiwi, this is cause for major concern.  Read the rest here

Jeff Wright book, chapter for Sheriffs

This is the meat of the book "The Citizen's Last Stand" as it pertains to the office of Sheriff in most counties of our country.  Please download and print off this critical chapter.  Read it, then pass it on to a member of the sheriff's office if you know one, or to a neighbor if you don't.  Please spread the word.

Hand-outs for Freedom

Fred Holden has prepared several powerful brochures you can print out and hand out to spread the word about our founding documents and our Bill of Rights as citizens.

The Law (downloadable book)
By Fredric Bastiat

"Many philosophers have made important contributions to the discourse on liberty, Bastiat among them. But Frederic Bastiat’s greatest contribution is that he took the discourse out of the ivory tower and made ideas on liberty so clear that even the unlettered can understand them and statists cannot obfuscate them. Clarity is crucial to persuading our fellowman of the moral superiority of personal liberty."
Walter E. Williams

 

Five Basic Republican Principles:

Protect the rights of the individual
Protect the free enterprise system
Reduce government to the lowest practical level
Endorse the practice of fiscal responsibility
Know, protect and strengthen America's magnificent, powerful Freedom Documents:

The Personal Power of a Citizen

We forget sometimes that the government works for us.  That means the individuals who work in jobs in government work for us.  We have statutory protection from obstruction and bullying by our hired government employees. Read this document for specifics.

Exposition on the preamble to the Constitution

The Preamble has considerable potency by virtue of its specification of the purposes for which the Constitution exists. It distills the underlying values that moved the Framers during their long debates in Philadelphia. As Justice Joseph Story put it in his celebrated Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, “its true office is to expound the nature and extent and application of the powers actually conferred by the Constitution.” Read it here

Lessons from the $2 Bill

The back of the $2 bill is a painting by John Trumbull of many founding fathers called "Declaration of Independence". It was made in 1817 and measures 12 feet tall and 18 feet wide!  In the original, Thomas Jefferson is standing on John Adam's foot!  They changed that for the engraving for the $2 bill. 42 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence are featured.  Use a $2 bill to introduce servers to the richness of American history.  Learn how here.
