At least there is one county GOP unit that has it together and knows where it stands. I commend the Botetourt GOP for this stand.
Botetourt Co. Republican Committee Unanimously Passes Resolutions
Botetourt County’s Republican Committee has passed one resolution supporting the tea parties and a second resolution voicing its support for state sovereignty.
Fincastle, VA – April 27, 2009 – The Botetourt County Republican Committee unanimously passed two resolutions at their April meeting. The first commends those participating in the Tea Parties and invites them to join the Botetourt County Republican Party. The second resolution commends Texas for passing a state sovereignty bill in support of the Tenth Amendment, and calls upon Virginia’s Legislature and Governor to pass Virginia’s state sovereignty bill - HR 61. The Botetourt County Republican Party believes the unanimous passage of these resolutions will not only send a strong message to Virginia’s elected representatives but also to the Republican Party.
The Botetourt County Republican Party hopes both resolutions will send a clear signal to Virginia’s citizens: there is a renewed willingness in the Virginia Republican Party to stand up for your Constitutional rights. Danny H Goad, Vice Chair of the Botetourt County Republican Party summed it up this way, "We are the party of the people and the passage of these resolutions further demonstrates that."
In passing the second measure, the Botetourt Co. Republican Party leads the way for other Party units in Virginia to call upon their elected state legislators to pass HR 61 – which will strengthen the Commonwealth of Virginia's assertion of its sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Delegate Fralin who represents part of Roanoke and Botetourt is a sponsor of the bill.
