Resolution 1: Government Spending WHEREAS our Founding Fathers sternly warned us of the dangers of public debt, monetary inflation, and attacks on private property by unrestrained government power; WHEREAS federal government spending has doubled in just 10 years between 2001 ($1.9 trillion) and 2011 ($3.8 trillion); WHEREAS todays federal debt of $16.7 trillion is equal to $212,000 in debt for each family of 4 in the US – nearly 1.5 times the average US home value. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party affirms its opposition to the federal government’s unprecedented level of spending and calls for Georgia’s Congressional delegation to pass a balanced federal budget within 5 fiscal years with no increases in tax rates for any citizen.
Resolution 2: State Sovereignty WHEREAS in founding our Republic, the States gave the federal government only those powers specified in Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution; WHEREAS the Bill of Rights establishes that in our federalist Republic: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, or to the people.” THEREFOR BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party strongly opposes Georgia implementing the nationalized “Common Core” curriculum in our public schools and urges the Governor and General Assembly to replace it in 2014 with a world class K-12 curriculum directed by the State of Georgia; RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party supports requiring that federal funding for any function not enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 be either eliminated or blocked granted back to the States for implementation.

Resolution 4: Individual Liberty WHEREAS the purpose of civil government is to secure and protect the fundamental rights of its citizens; WHEREAS the preservation of Life, Liberty, and property are the cornerstones of our constitutional Republic and are natural rights believed by our Founders to be worthy of dying for. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party ardently affirms the fundamental rights of free speech and assembly; the right of full religious expression; the individual right to bear arms; the right of persons to be free from search, seizure, or unwarranted government intrusion; the right of private property; the unfettered right of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children; and that the right to life is paramount among the rights; RESOLVED that that all persons be given equal protection and due process under the law; as such, the Cobb Republican Party unequivocally condemns any act or policy that claims the power to detain citizens without full legal representation or permits unmanned drone attacks on any person on US soil.
Resolution 5: Peace Through Strength WHEREAS our nation was founded by brave Americans who risked their lives to secure the blessings of Liberty through armed conflict; WHEREAS the Cobb Republican Party ardently affirms the principle of “peace through strength” outlined in George Washington’s final State of the Union address as a core principle of preserving American Liberty. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party declares its support for a national defense strategy of a strong, rapidly deployable military capable of winning simultaneous wars on two fronts; RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party affirms its unwavering support for Israel and our allies and recognizes that a financial policy of sound money and minimizing foreign held debt is a security issue of great national importance; RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party supports US energy independence through the responsible development of a variety of energy sources including: nuclear, on/off shore oil, hydraulic fracturing, oil sands, and economically viable sources of wind and solar energy.
Resolution 6: Commending Leadership WHEREAS we find it fitting to honor individuals who have committed their lives to organizing and motivating Republicans in Cobb County, the State of Georgia, and beyond; WHEREAS the Cobb Republican Party is very fortunate to have enjoyed exceptional leadership at the County and State level from one individual who has been tireless in upholding the principles of the Republican Party. THEREFOR BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party hereby recognizes and commends Mrs. Sue Everhart for her 6 years of exceptionally meritorious service as the Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party.
Resolution 7: Right to Bear Arms WHEREAS the protection of Life, Liberty, and property are the cornerstones of our constitutional Republic; WHEREAS the very source of Liberty comes in the form of unalienable rights granted directly to the individual from our Creator; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party ardently affirms the fundamental right of all individuals to protect themselves, their families, and their property from all forms of violence and tyranny; RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party affirms that access to firearms, ammunition, and accessories by law abiding citizens shall not be infringed; RESOLVED to oppose any government regulation that restricts semi-automatic weapons, the capacity of magazines, or requires training to own a firearm. RESOLVED that gun free zones are dangerous to people and urges the General Assembly and US Congress to enact laws that maximize the opportunity for all persons to enjoy their right to bear arms in every setting possible.
Resolution 8: Sanctity of Human Life WHEREAS for more than two centuries, our nation and its Founders have recognized that the fundamental right to Life was paramount among the rights. THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party ardently affirms the right to life of all unborn children from the moment of conception; RESOLVED supports the overturn of the Roe vs. Wade, Doe vs. Bolton, and the Planned Parenthood vs. Casey decisions of the US Supreme Court; RESOLVED supports making it clear that the “equal protection” clause of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution applies to unborn children; RESOLVED the Cobb Republican Party supports passage of a human life amendment to the Georgia Constitution and supports the legal elimination of abortion on demand in the State of Georgia.
Resolution 9: In God We Trust WHEREAS in establishing the American Republic, our Founders pledged: “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”; WHEREAS our Founder’s concept of unalienable, God-given individual rights has been under unrelenting attack for more than a century; WHEREAS thousands of delegates to the 2012 Democratic Party convention broadly and publicly rejected our nation’s motto “In God We Trust.” RESOLVED that the Cobb Republican Party declares its support for religious pluralism as well as the basic right of conscience of those with no religious faith; RESOLVED however, that the United States is a nation of law based upon a timeless body of Truth recognized by our nation’s Founders; In God We Trust THEREFOR BE IT RESOLVED as members of the Cobb Republican Party we hereby declare in firm reliance on divine providence: “In God We Trust.”
