Dear Fellow Conservatives,

Happy Independence Day! As we enjoy parades and picnics, and fireworks and family, I would like to offer three quotes that make me reflect on why we celebrate this day. Two quotes come from leaders with a mixed legacy, and one comes from a great American founder:

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” –Woodrow Wilson

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” –Nelson Mandela

“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.” –Thomas Jefferson

Roll back creeping tyranny. Build a better tomorrow for everyone. Guard the God-given rights of humanity. On July 4th, 1776, fifty-six Americans signed their names at the bottom of a document, pledging “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” to make those very goals a reality.

On July 4th, 2015, I’m not just celebrating that I have more freedom than most of the people on planet Earth. I’m not just celebrating that I’m proud to be an American. I’m celebrating the opportunity to carry the same torch of liberty lit by those fifty-six men 239 years ago today.

Will you carry that torch with me?

Let freedom ring,

Levi Rawls

Chair, San Juan County Republican Party

Vote No for Proposition 1!

See the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Under all the surface niceties of the Land Bank lie financially crippling measures and new missions. Of course we want protected lands to appreciate and enjoy. Preservation Trust, Bureau of Land Management, State and National Parks have served this purpose. The Land Bank has helped this mission but at much cost to our county financially. Competitive real estate sales have gone to other counties and competitive land leases have been lost to county control. Removing tax parcels diminishes our tax base at a time when our county needs are great. Stop the unnecessary expansion of Land Bank. Let it maintain what it has now, sell the properties not intended for conservation, get out of competitive agriculture and help our county in this rough economy. Be ready, this issue will not go away if rejected this election. We will be asked again over the next elections to reevaluate this excise tax. Until the economy recovers we need to help our county’s financial needs. Vote NO to Proposition 1.
