President’s Message...Cherie Wood As dedicated Republican women, many of us long time members of Active Republican Women, we all realize the future of our club lies with our youth. So how proud we are to have Jennifer Barrier as an active member who also represents ARW as our Communications/Public Relations Committee Chairman. Jennifer is a very committed conservative and currently a UNLV Business major which could make her an oddity at most of today's college campuses. But, Jennifer knows the meaning of hard work as she holds down a full time job while pursuing her degree full time, as well. As Communications Chair, she keeps our website up to date, writes passionately on ARW's facebook page and keeps everyone in the conservative know on Twitter. She may even want to run for office someday. Jennifer is the future of ARW and through her young wisdom, she will inspire more of her peers to see the light of what truly makes our country and our Constitution great. It is for this reason, I asked to use a piece from Jennifer's insight, and posted on our ARW facebook page about the differences between Republicans and Democrats. As my first, of more to come, guest writers for the President's message, it is with great pleasure this month to publish the following message from our very own---Jennifer C. Barrier. Thank you, Jennifer. " Cherie Wood, President What Differentiates Republicans and Democrats? By Jennifer Barrier If you were walking down the sidewalk and somebody came up to you and asked you what differentiates a Democrat and a Republican, how would you answer? Could you give that person a logical enough answer that when he walks away, he is fully informed enough to formulate his own conclusions and govern their beliefs accordingly? Is that person governed by conscience, or conviction? Is there a difference? A Republican is generally a conservative who is governed by their convictions. They believe in the Jeffersonian ideal of limited government, a free-market economy, and the rugged individualism that forged this nation into the powerhouse it is today. A Republican believes that Americans are quintessential to the rest of the world, unique among all others. Republicans do not subordinate themselves to the whims and vices of excessive, intrusive, and over-reaching government. They believe that limited government is the best way to incent a society to strive to achieve its full potential by individual achievement, self-reliance, benevolence, perseverance, and toil.

June 2013

May 30, 2013—Special Event

Safety Symposium featuring expert speakers on the

Wayne Root — Book Launch & Signing

essential topics of personal safety, gun safety, cyber safety, and national security. As women we need to learn what we can do to protect ourselves against violence. Our right to own a gun for protection is constantly under attack and it is important to know how to safely own and use one. Plus, the nightly news is full of reports of our personal information being hacked or a person's identity being stolen. Come out and learn important ways to protect your information and bank accounts. Finally, the status of our national security is constantly changing and we will hear an update on how safe America currently is. More information to come for this exciting event including the Saturday date/time

5:30 cocktails, and at 6:00 Wayne will talk about his new book on surviving Obamacare, followed by a drawing for a free copy of the book and a book signing with Wayne. Admission of $20 includes light food and soft drinks plus one free ticket for the drawing to win a copy of Wayne's book. National media coverage is being arranged, so invite your friends and come out to support this event. 4

President’s Message Continued from Page 3… Republicans believe in strong national defense, espousing the Ronald Reagan doctrine of peace through strength. They believe that peace is not the absence of war, but the inability and will of your adversary to wage it against you. Republicans believe in limited taxation, and that economic prosperity is driven from the private sector. A Democrat is usually a liberal who is governed by their conscience. They tend to be more capricious and impulsive than their Republican counterparts, and tend to legislate accordingly. Unfortunately, to be liberal today is tantamount to being a leftist as well. This was not always the case. Since the tumult of the 1960’s, left-wing ideology has permeated into most major American institutions such as education, government, and especially the media. President Kennedy was a liberal, but he was not a leftist. Today they are synonymous. To be a liberal today is to be a leftist. Democrats believe in limitless government, excessive and disproportionate taxation, and superfluous regulation. They believe the rights and freedoms of the individual are subordinate to the needs of the state, and that these rights and freedoms should be limited and controlled through government largess. Democrats believe that America should have a more demure, reticent presence in the world, and a smaller, more impotent military would allay the apprehensions of our adversaries. The American media is controlled by leftists and liberals, and are fervent supporters of Democratic policies. They control the narrative, the nomenclature, and the verbiage. As such, they are able to manipulate the American lexicon to alter the perception of the Republican Party, and do it masterfully. They achieve this not only by what they report, but by what they choose not to. Unflattering stories about Democrats or their policies are keenly omitted, or severely truncated. Accounts of Republican policies are usually embellished to appear bullish, indignant, and bellicose. The American media could once be relied upon to be the watchdog of our government, but no longer.

Caring for America... Barbara Altman


As you know, this year we are supporting Marion Cahlan-Edison Elementary School. This school has approximately 800 students, most of which are living at, or below. poverty level. The school’s population is highly transient, with a disturbing percentage identified as homeless, or living in a multifamily situation due largely to economic hardship. The School had received the podium our club donated & they have already put it to use. They are very grateful to ARW for our continuing support.

Amy Negrete, Principle of CahlanEdison Elementary School, mentioned to me that the next immediate need is the children need Bermuda Shorts sizes 5-12. And,, of course, the full list of needed items can be found on pages 20 & 21. We Republican Women must always do our part to help our children.

Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!! Thank you for support, Caring for America Chairman Barbara Altman

Literacy...Molly Governs Mamie Eisenhower Library Project 2012-2013 Within ARW LV I wear two hats. That of Literacy Chair is the better known. The second is that of the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project (MELP) Chair for ARW. Every two years the National Federation of Republican draws from a national committee a list of well reviewed books that not only represent our conservative viewpoints, but sometimes a few books that add balance by presenting opposing views to add some spice and end up underlining to the list for readers who want a well rounded view of conservative and liberal thinking. The categories and sub lists of books on the list include books for adults and AP students, books addressing threats to freedom, defenders of freedom books, fighting for freedom, encounter books, elected officials on freedom, youth (ages 9 and up), and children (ages 6 and up). Republican Women’s groups around the country are encouraged and receive recognition for donating books from this list to libraries, book discussion groups, and other pertinent community groups. Within the last two years ARW has donated books twice from this this to elementary school libraries. Take a look at the list on the NFRW’s website at: Check out the MELP list. A book drawn from this lists is highlighted regularly on the NFRW website. Happy reading! Molly Governs MELP Chair Literacy Chair

Legislative Corner...Melody Howard There is a municipal election in Henderson for Municipal Court Judge, Dept. 1. If you live in Henderson, please make sure you vote June 4th (early voting starts May 18th). For voting locations, please click here. Judge Mark Stevens is running for re-election in that district.

Interim Legislative Update From Assemblyman John Hambrick

Well it's the beginning of the eleventh week of the legislature. There was no shortage of gun or 2nd amendment issues. Campus carry, Constitutional carry, 10th Amendment defense, taxes of guns and ammo, and a few more just for fun - all died at the hands of the Democrat majority. Additionally there is the lovely question of taxes. Business taxes, mining taxes, and a thinking tax---just kidding! Speaking of mining taxes, there is a pending bill that will propose to remove the State Constitutional protection of mining and its level of tax percentage. Senator Roberson (R) and five other Republican senators are proposing a huge tax increase in gold mining taxes aimed at two specific mines: Barrick and Goldmont. These mines are being singularly targeted in an effort to defeat the unions’ efforts to have a new business tax passed by the voters in the next election cycle. The Assembly Republicans, Keystone Group and the Governor have uniformly disagreed with the proposal. This writer will let the reader form his or her own opinion. Additionally, there are rumors that these same Republican Senators are lining up to change the State Constitution on the Defense of Marriage issue. There are other issues that also need to be addressed soon: construction defect, prevailing wage, and the dreaded state retirement system (PERS) are all on the Republican bucket list. So far the majority have refused to have hearings on most of these issues. Being the minority really sucks sometimes. No, I take that back, being the minority sucks all the time. Both the Assembly and the State Senate MUST do a better job in recruiting candidates that attract voters to our issues. Can we re-capture the majority in the State Senate? Absolutely!! Can we increase the Republican numbers in the Assembly - yes, we can. The answer on how is very simple. Yup, it is simple!! To see the answer put this article down get up and go to the nearest mirror and take a long hard look. You are our hope and our future, and you are our only chance of winning in 2014. Each of you has your favorite topic. Please do not be silent. Let your members of the Legislature know your thoughts. Call, e-mail or come up to Carson City and speak directly with your senator or assembly member. As bills come up for hearings, please come and testify for or against. Do it in Carson City or at the Sawyer Building in Las Vegas. Call me if you ever have a question. John Carson # 775-684-8827 Cell # 702-499-6169

Did you know...

The new Welfare Map

These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they have Employed! Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U..S. household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What’s the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.


Be sure to stop by the Boutique before the Fashion Show begins. We will have a BIG SALE going on with some of our hottest items! Some of our rings, bracelet and earring sets, bracelet and ring sets and sunglasses will all be marked down in a big way! We also have some very nice photo albums for sale.

I am a republican because…

I believe the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability

I believe free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

I believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.

I believe the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

I believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

I believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

Finally, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
