Mount Rushmore

“The preservation of the sacred fire of Liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.” George Washington, First President of the United States

“We act not for ourselves but for the whole human race. The event of our experiment is to show whether man can be trusted with self – government.”
Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States

“The first requisite of a good citizen in this Republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his weight – that he shall not be a mere passenger.”
Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

“I leave you hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal.” Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States

A prayer for healing

To preserve our blessed land we must look to God. It is time to realize that we need God more than he needs us. We also have his promise that we could take to heart with regard to our country, that “If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Let us, young and old, join together, as we did in the First Continental Congress, in the first step, in humble heartfelt prayer.

Let us so for the love of God and his great goodness, in search of his guidance and the grace of repentance, in seeking his blessings, his peace, and the resting of his kind and holy hands on ourselves, our nation, our friends in the defense of freedom, and all mankind, now and always.

The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in him for the healing of America. Our country is in need of and ready for the spiritual renewal. Today we utter no prayer more fervently than the ancient prayer for peace on earth.

If I had a prayer for you today, among those that have all be uttered, it is that one we’re so familiar with: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and the gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace … ” And God bless you all.

President Ronald Reagan


Charlevoix County is Republican Red

We advocate for limited government: In order to uphold the value of individual freedom, it is crucial to restrain the power of government. Otherwise, a few individuals could impose their will on the majority, thereby curtailing the ability of citizens to make choices that align with their own best interests.

Fighting for our future

Government must act to preserve freedom, while individuals must exercise their responsibilities to preserve order.

Neil Friske
District 107

Republican Party 

Republicans believe in liberty, economic prosperity, preserving American values and traditions, and restoring the American dream for every citizen of this great nation. As a party, we support policies that seek to achieve those goals.

The Republican Party’s legacy — we were originally founded in 1854 for the purpose of ending slavery — compels us to patriotically defend America’s values. As the left attempts to destroy what makes America great, the Republican Party is standing in the breach to defend our nation and way of life

Dec. 12, 1870: Joseph H. Rainey First African American in U.S. House of Reps

If they [Democrats] will continue to proscribe us, if they will continue to cultivate prejudice against us; if they will continue to decry the Negro and crush him under foot, then you cannot expect the Negro to rise while the Democrats are trampling upon him and his rights. We ask you, sir, to do by the Negro as you ought to do by him in justice. He also has the distinction of being the first black person to preside over the House of Representatives in 1874.
Joseph H. Rainey, Republican Party U.S. House of Reps

Our national principles which we are founded on


Natural /Inalienable Rights

Rights which belong to humans by nature and can only be justly abridged through due process. Examples are life, liberty, and property.



The power to think and act as one sees fit without restraint except by the laws of nature and interfering with someone else’s rights.



Natural rights are the rights that humans have by nature, such as life, liberty, and property. They are universal, fundamental, and inalienable, and are derived from natural law.
