What are the "Core Principles" of the Clark County Republican Party?

The Clark County Republican Party is a big-tent party, run by its elected Precinct Committee Officers (the "Central Committee").  There are 304 precincts in Clark County and as of this writing approximately 200 of them have Precinct Committee Officers ("PCOs") who are elected by their neighbors in their own neighborhoods.

While PCOs have differing opinions on a variety of issues, there are other issues which have nearly universal support and tend to bind us together.  The "Core Principles" is an actual mechanism we created within our CCRCC Bylaws to identify the unifying principles with which we find broad agreement

There are some very important things to know about this process to avoid misunderstanding what our list of "Core Principles" is and what it is not.

Grassroots PCOs worked very hard to implement this process and help it gain acceptance within the party culture.  Those who have promoted this know that unity cannot be achieved by edict, but by mutual respect and action.  It is our hope that the Clark County Republican Central Committee (CCRCC) will continue to build upon this list of principles with due diligence and deliberation, so as to develop a Republican Party Brand which will be an example to our community in Clark County and also an example to other communities across the state.

At our August 21st, 2014 meeting, four of the proposed seven Core Principles were adopted, each by an overwhelming majority.  All which failed to receive the required 75% vote did exceed simple majorities, but require more work to achieve more universal support.  In other words -- the process worked!  With all this in mind, here are the first ever adopted Core Principles of the Clark County Republican Party -- the beginning of an ongoing work which we hope will rally like minded citizens across Clark County to join us in our efforts to preserve our freedom, our individual Liberty, and the opportunities which the USA has historically afforded to ourselves and our posterity.

Having Achieved the Necessary 75% Super-Majority Vote of
Precinct Committee Officers on August 21, 2014,
Following are the First Adopted
Core Principles of the Clark County Republican Party:
  • EQUALITY UNDER LAW--Public officials should not exempt themselves from our laws or regulations.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY--Public officials should be held accountable to their oath of office, regardless of party affiliation.
  • SANCTITY OF LIFE--Human life, regardless of age, has the right to legal protection.
  • MINIMAL GOVERNMENT--Government's powers should be minimal, clearly defined, and honestly interpreted.
