Constitution Day – Tuesday, September 17

Join the Forsyth County Republican Party
in honoring Constitution Day with

A Constitutional Conversation:
The Declaration of Independence
presented by Scott Cumbie
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 6:00 PM
Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton Street

The foundation for our US Constitution is the Declaration of Independence.  The Declaration not only defines to philosophy that is the core of our uniquely American government, but it defines the problems that the American colonies experienced under British rule.  The US Constitution corrects each of the problems identified in the Declaration.  To fully understand the US Constitution, you must understand the foundation, the Declaration of Independence.

Upcoming Guest Speaker – August

When: August 20, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Where: Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton St., Winston-Salem, NC 27130
Who: Lindalyn Kakadelis, NC Education Alliance
What: Common Core and Public Education
Why:
Under the guise of common education standards, the left is pushing the implementation of Common Core around the country.  Lindalyn Kakdelis will be educating us on Common Core, telling us the status and affect on NC Public Education and what we must do to stop the implementation.

NC Lt. Gov. Dan Forest has a short YouTube video where he expresses his initial concerns with Common Core: http://youtu.be/KdCav9-2Ri4

Upcoming Guest Speaker- July

When: Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Where: Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton St, Winston-Salem, NC 27103
Who: Vallee Bubak and NC Rep Robert Brawley
What: Public/Private Partnerships and Toll Roads
Why:
There is an effort under way to create toll lanes on I-77.  If successful, NC would sign a 50 year contract (yes, that’s fifty year contract) with a private company to own and manage these toll lanes.  If I-77 is tolled, other roads, including I-40, could soon be on a list to be tolled.

The decision to toll I-77 will affect all of NC.  A 50-year Public/Private Partnership should be a serious concern for all taxpayers.  This will create a financial obligation to your grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their children.
