Annual Picnic held on July 28th

003On Thursday, July 28th the Waynesboro Republicans held their annual picnic.

Because of the heat and the forecast of strong thunderstorms, the picnic was held indoors at the home of Ken and Sandy Adams. Ken is the Chairman of the Waynesboro Republican Committee.

Despite the weather, twenty people attended.

The food was plentiful and delicious. But, the best part of the evening was the fellowship and the talks. Ken was an Alternate Delegate at the Republican National Convention which was held in Cleveland. He described what it was like to be part of the event.

Scott Sayre, the Chairman of the 6th Congressional District Committee spoke, as did Dickie Bell, our representative in the Virginia House of Delegates.

It was a wonderful evening.

Perhaps, you have been considering joining the Waynesboro Republicans or volunteering to work during the Presidential campaign. If that is you, we cordially invite you to attend a meeting of the Committee. You will find a warm welcome among good folks.

Court Overturns Law That Binds Delegates

At the Republican National Convention, delegates are bound by Republican Party of Virginia rules to vote as instructed on the first ballot. However, delegates could always vote as they wished and the RPV does not have any sanction or punishment that accrues to delegates who vote as they choose.

In the past, delegates always voted on the first ballot as instructed by the RPV rules. Therefore, the issue has never arisen or been debated.

There is a State law that says a delegate must vote as instructed by the RPV. Should a delegate not vote as instructed, that person would be guilty of a misdemeanor and may be prosecuted.

A Federal District Court ruled on Monday, July 11th that a State law may not be used to enforce Party rules. The Judge asserted that a political Party is a private organization and the State has no business being involved in the operational workings of such an organization.

That means that delegates are still bound by RPV rules, but the police power of the State may not be used to enforce those rules.

It is unknown if the Court ruling will affect the Convention.

Supreme Court Dictates Abortion Law

On Monday, June 27th, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law which required abortion clinics to have the same standards as other medical clinics. The Supreme Court ruled that it would protect abortionists from any laws that limit their grisly business.

Five Supreme Court Justices overturned medical standards in sixteen States. And, they did so without the Constitutional authority to justify their action. The Supreme Court ruling on Monday is the very description of a dictatorship.

These are, indeed, dangerous times for our nation. The Justices of the Supreme Court have become dictators by unconstitutionally creating laws according to their political inclinations.

The American remedy for despots is the Constitution. Let us find and elect candidates who understand the genius of our Founding Document and who have the courage to defend it.

If you believe in Individual Liberty, Limited Constitutional Government, the Rule of Law, Personal Responsibility and Economic Freedom, the Waynesboro Republican Committee needs you.
