The Skamania County Republican Party has a long history standing on strong constitutional principles and values. Our platform consists of enduring principles and prudent thought, not passing conveniences with little thought for the future. Our platform rests on proven truths as it looks ahead, in order to deal with present and future challenges. We offer our fellow Skamania county residents our assurance that our ideals are those that will unify our county, state and country.
The SCRP is propelled by a set of strong core values and a passion for protecting, preserving, and defending liberty as outlined by the Constitution. These principles, derived directly from the wisdom of America’s Founders, serve as constant reminders to us as we seek to advance the cause of liberty.
We believe that principled leadership must stand upon foundation and core values that transcend time and societal pressures. We affirm the truths of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution that tie us to principled governance. We understand the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, personal responsibility, the right to keep and bear arms and the sanctity of human life.
We understand the difficulty in advancing these ideas in the arena of a decidedly left-leaning media culture. We believe ‘these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among which are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” We believe that to secure these God-given rights, government are instituted among men and women, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed.
The SCRP is made of and welcomes men and women and of all creeds and colors. We are thankful for the beauty of where we live and the neighbors we are blessed with. We believe that the United States of America is an exceptional nation that in its creation broke the historical norm. We are grateful for being self-governing and free citizens and understand the debt we owe for those who paved the way before us. SCRP understands the duty to pass on the blessing of liberty to our children and grandchildren.
