Handy Matrix of ORP Position on Ballot Measures

For those last-minute voters who are wondering what position the Oregon Republican Party took on the ballot measures, here is a handy matrix:

[A safe approach is to automatically vote of NO on all ballot measures unless a very compelling case for YES can be made. When in doubt, vote NO. – Jay]

Measure Subject Description Position Reason
86 Education Amends Oregon Constitution to create fund for Oregonians pursuing post-secondary education; authorizes debt to finance No Better left to private sector; another unfunded government program
87 Judiciary Allows judges to be hired by the National Guard and public universities; allows school employees to serve in the legislature - No financial impact; non-controversial
88 Immigration Upholds four-year driver licenses for those who cannot prove legal presence in the United States No Encourages illegal immigration;  does not improve road safety
89 Civil Rights Guarantees equal rights regardless of sex - Oregon already has constitutional protection for all persons
90 Elections Creates an open, top-two primary election system No Reduces voter choice;  reduces voter participation;  eliminates minor parties
91 Marijuana Legalizes recreational marijuana; tasks Oregon Liquor Control Commission with regulation of its sale No Legitimizes dangerous drug use;  costs more than revenue generated
92 Business Regulation Mandates labeling of certain foodstuffs that contain genetically modified organisms No Costly to Oregon growers;  does not provide useful information to consumers

Vote Freedom First On or Before November 4th – Vote Greg Walden for U.S. House of Representatives!

Walden

 

Based on his consistent and proven voting record on Second Amendment issues in the U.S. House of Representatives, Representative Walden has earned an “A” rating from NRA-PVF for this election.  An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes.

Representative Walden is a cosponsor of H.R. 2959, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013.  This bill would ensure that law-abiding Americans with a valid concealed handgun permit would be able to carry their concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.   He voted for a similar bill in 2011.

Representative Walden voted for H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2013, a bill that would positively impact sportsmen throughout Oregon and the country.  Specifically, the SHARE Act would protect traditional hunting ammunition and fishing tackle, open additional land access for hunting and fishing, and allow firearms to be legally carried on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.

In addition, Representative Walden voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on both criminal and civil charges for the flawed and tragic Fast and Furious scandal.

Furthermore, Greg Walden opposes the Obama-Bloomberg agenda of banning guns, ammunition, magazines, and creating a so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms between life-long friends and many family members.

That’s why it’s important for you and every freedom-loving voter in Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District to vote for Greg Walden for U.S. House of Representatives on or before Tuesday, November 4th

UNION COUNTY EVENT:

 

 

Protect Oregon Driver Licenses Referendum

PolkCounty

There is one ballot measure in November that will really bring out Republican voters.  Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) was successful in gathering over 77,000 signatures on their citizens veto referendum to overturn the bill which required the DMV to issue driver cards to illegal aliens.   We need to urge voters to vote NO on this measure in November.

PODL would like to mail every Republican County Party information packed brochures and other materials for their members to pass out at local events this summer.  The Oregon Republican Party has endorsed the referendum to overturn the driver card bill and the Republican Party platform has a plank in opposition to giving Oregon driver cards to illegal aliens.

Two of the Chief Petitioners and endorsers of the referendum are Representative Sal Esquivel (R- Medford) and Representative Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer).  Also, Senator Tim Knopp and Senator Jeff Kruse have endorsed the referendum campaign.  The Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association (Sheriffs of Oregon PAC) has also given their endorsement to the referendum campaign.  The ORP platform is clear on illegal immigration.  Needless to say, voters who turn out for this measure are likely to vote for Republicans up and down the ticket.

If you would like materials such as buttons, pencils, informational brochures about the referendum, etc. to distribute at your events this summer, or if you would like PODL volunteers to help staff your booth, please contact Cynthia Kendoll at jcniles@teleport.com or by phone at (503) 581-6485 and Protect Oregon Driver Licenses will send them out to you.

If you would like to invite a speaker to attend one of your meetings to talk about the referendum, what’s happening on the border or any other immigration related topic please contact Cynthia!

Thank you so very much!
