Welcome to the Republican Party of Dane County!

"There is no horizontal stratification of society in this country like the rocks in the earth, that hold one class down below forevermore, and let another come to the surface to stay there forever. Our stratification is like the ocean, where every individual drop is free to move, and where from the sternest depths of the mighty deep any drop may come up to glitter on the highest wave that rolls.”

James A. Garfield

Our mission is to influence the politics of Dane County by community involvement, informing friends and neighbors of our position on issues and by assisting our communities through selfless acts of charity.  

We are Republicans

We are grandparents, parents, and young adults.  We are homemakers, businesspeople, retirees, and students.  We are life-long Wisconsinites, transplants, and immigrants from afar.  We are a diverse group but we all believe in the same, simple principles - Life.  Liberty.  Opportunity.

We also like to have fun with monthly ‘Pints & Politics’, a family summer picnic, a formal Lincoln Day Dinner, and many other events through out the year!

    A Pastor Fights Against Government Restrictions on Political Sermons

    When the Rev. Gus Booth found out the IRS was dropping its inquiry into Warroad Community Church where he preaches, he was actually disappointed. “We wanted to go to court,” Booth told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “This is the First Amendment vs. the IRS code. One standard of the law would win.”

    The IRS has almost never fully enforced the Johnson Amendment, which the new Republican Party platform calls for getting rid of. The language of the platform is:

    Places of worship for the first time in our history have reason to fear the loss of tax-exempt status merely for espousing and practicing traditional religious beliefs that have been held across the world for thousands of years, and for almost four centuries in America. We value the right of America’s religious leaders to preach, and Americans to speak freely, according to their faith. Republicans believe the federal government, specifically the IRS, is constitutionally prohibited from policing or censoring speech based on religious convictions or beliefs, and therefore we urge the repeal of the Johnson Amendment.

    Republican nominee Donald Trump echoed the platform’s policy position in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday night, saying, “An amendment, pushed by Lyndon Johnson, many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views.” READ the REST HERE.
