Welcome From the Chair, Scott Stuart
Most of us have ancestors who’ve immigrated to the USA. From all the earth. A great multitude of families and individuals and cultures, all with the same intention: hope in The Dream. The Dream of Liberty & Freedom and the ability to pursue life without the oppression of tyrannical leaders and corrupt laws. This Dream is what has historically brought Americans together in spite of race, color or creed. It is the profound guiding principles of our Founding Fathers, birthed from struggle and oppression, and The Dream, that have facilitated tremendous growth, happiness and success for the American nation. It’s the thing many felt strong enough to fight to the death for. It is these precious guiding principles that allowed for The Dream’s fulfillment, and that are at the root of Scott’s passion for history, his Scottish heritage, American heritage, civics and our founding documents.
With a vast understanding of history comes a unique burden when observing history about to repeat itself—and society at large unaware of the age-old patterns emerging. It is the red flags of observation that have emboldened me to pursue a leadership role in the Deschutes Republican Party (DRP). As your newly elected Chair, in order to help re-establish our guiding principles that have led us so far, the vision is to promote and spread the common sense Republican Party values, work and have fun with loads of volunteers passionate about keeping Central Oregon's values, and actively support candidates who espouse the DRP's vision.
Deschutes Republicans welcome the participation of anyone who shares our beliefs in limited government, individual and religious liberty, fiscal responsibility and common sense in public-policy. Please join us!
If you are already a registered Republican and anxious to help reverse the Democrat policies of Oregon, please sign-up to volunteer and join our efforts.
And we have a message link which you can use to ask questions. Your message will come directly to me and others in leadership and we will respond as promptly as we can. I look forward to meeting you at one of our meetings.
I am a businessman, entrepreneur and hard working conservative activist, committed to running the Deschutes Republicans as a business - utilizing the talents of many others - to achieve our goals. Please consider becoming part of the movement to make Deschutes County Red Again!
Governance and Principles
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
~ from the Declaration of Independence
What does unalienable mean? Unalienable (https://www.dictionary.com/browse/unalienable) is also an adjective that can be defined as “not transferable to another or not capable of being taken away or denied; inalienable.” For example, there are certain rights that American citizens are born with and these are unalienable. Those RIGHTS are spelled out in the U.S. Constitution Bill of Rights.
Deschutes Republicans is an active volunteer organization working to:
- Promote Republican ideals and principles
- Register Republican voters
- Educate Republicans on the importance of voting
- Recruit and retain Precinct Committee Persons (PCP’s)
- Organize a “Get-Out-The-Vote” program
- Elect Republican candidates to office
The Deschutes Republicans Central Committee is the official state Republican group in Deschutes County. It has no paid employees (all volunteers). The committee performs duties prescribed by law and does all things necessary to carry on a full-time, aggressive party program.
Deschutes Republicans are assigned 500+ Precinct Committee Person positions, who do the business of the party in the county.
I want to find out more about being a PCP!
Meetings are held monthly at various locations.
