We are the official Republican Party of Branch County, organized and functioning in accordance with Michigan election law (Act 116 of 1954, Section XXV), Michigan Republican Party bylaws and our local bylaws. We believe in the Republican principles as shown on the page. We support the rule of law and the entire Constitution of the United States. We believe in the sanctity of all life, from conception to natural death. We stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem and begin each of meetings with prayer. We feel we are blessed to live in this greatest of nations and the great state of Michigan.
We meet on the third Thursday of each month at the Promedica Community Health and Conference Center, 370 E. Chicago Street in Coldwater, MI. Meetings convene at 7PM following our "Cookies, Coffee and Conversation" from 6:30-7PM. Our meetings are open to all who support Republican principles. We hope you will join us.
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.
