MOST IMPORTANT MEETINGS OF THE YEAR: CHATHAM AND ORLEANS RTCs MEET MONDAY, NOV 4TH, 5. ALL LOWER CAPE REPUBLICANS INVITED.

COME TO OUR MEETINGS ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH, 5, P.M.
--AT THE CHATHAM COMMUNITY CENTER.
--AT THE ORLEANS TOWN HALL.

THESE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT OF THE YEAR.

It will be all about the 150th Anniversary of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address that Republicans will be celebrating on Tuesday, November 19th at the Wequassett in Harwich.

We want to honor our first Republican and greatest President Abraham Lincoln, but, more important, we want to bring alive his timeless message that A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM is the responsibility of the living of every generation.

It is shameful that the President of the United States has refused to attend the principal ceremony at the Gettysburg Cemetery.

Today our rights under the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are under assault as seldom if every before by the government of the United States itself! You hear the president continually saying if Congress won't do it, he will. He is trampling on the Constitution. A Democrat-controlled Congress and Obama have forced on tens of millions of Americans an intrusive and costly Obamacare they didn't want and forced them out of health plans they were happy with. And they said that would not happen when they knew it would. And that's only one of many outrages.

And in Massachusetts such things as automatic tax increases without the need of votes by future legislatures are corrupting our system of governing. Excessive regulation is robbing us of our freedoms and is driving job creating businesses away. Laws the Democratic government doesn't like are not enforced: It's not illegal in Massachusetts to be illegal. We need a Republican Governor.

The movie Network of some years past had the right message for today: "I'm mad as well and I'm not going to take this anymore!" We have to fight to win back our freedoms.

We honor what Lincoln did to free millions of fellow Americans from slavery. We will also honor Lincoln by pledging to work to regain our rights guaranteed by the Declaration and the Constitution.

That means doing all we can to elect Republicans in 2014.

And that's why our Celebration of a New Birth of Freedom on November 19th is so important.

Charlie Baker gets the message and he's coming to Cape Cod to help us raise funds to win elections in November 2014.

Republican campaigns in Brewster, Harwich, Chatham, Orleans, Eastham and Truro will all benefit from the funds raised at this event. The Republican town committees of these towns are committed to grassroots campaigns such as they have never waged before.

For the nation's sake, Republicans should have won in 2012, but a superior technological and aggressively nasty Democratic campaign defeated the too nice guys.

In 2014 we have to fight as never before. Freedom is essential to enjoying our rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." It is up to us to take back what has been taken away.

The Chatham RTC and the Orleans RTC extend an invitation to all Republicans in the Lower Cape to come to our meetings this Monday at 5 o'clock to help plan for a successful celebration of Lincoln's message of freedom and an enthusiastic welcome for our next governor Charlie Baker.

Chatham RTC Vice Chair Diane Bronsdon will explain how the funds raised at this event will be shared will the participating towns. Brewster will get all the credit for a contribution from a resident of Brewster, the same for Harwich, the same for Orleans, the same for all the participating towns. This is a joint event benefiting all the participating RTCs coordinated by the Chatham RTC.

Chatham RTC Vice Chair Elaine Gibbs will explain what help she needs at the event itself and in the days leading up to it. Please come to lend a hand.

In Orleans Orleans RTC Chair Mary Allen Bradley will play Diane Bronsdon. Chatham RTC Chair Fran Meaney will go over the mechanics of how the event is coming together.

This is a joint event for the benefit of the RTCs in Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans and Truro. The Chatham RTC is acting as coordinator and joint fundraising agent in accordance with the requirements of state law. Chatham RTC is not receiving any income for its services as coordinator and joint fundraising agent.

Wequassett in Harwich is a beautiful setting. The reception is scheduled from 5 to 7:30. Fighters for Freedom ($125) We do need a few Sponsors to put us over the top ($500 and up). There will be some extra time for Sponsors with Charlie to advise him on his campaign! We hope everyone will come, but if you can't a donation in any amount will be helpful.

Let us know you are coming by calling Marie Acton at 508 945 2150 or emailing republican@chathamrepublicans.com with your name tag information (names and towns) as soon as possible. Space may be limited. Please email checks payable to "A New Birth of Freedom" to CRTC Special Account, P.O. Box 408, North Chatham, MA 02650. For men, jackets and ties encouraged.

The Invitation and Reply and Contribution Form will be available at the meeting. It can be downloaded and printed out by clicking on the link below:

Lincoln-Baker Invitation and Reply Form x.pdf

Early returns are looking good. We are about 30% along towards our target. For it to be a sparkling evening and warm reception for Charlie Baker, our next Republican governor, we need at least 100 people. We need you!

Of the $125 you contribute, $85 goes to your town to fight in the 2014 campaign. The $40 buys you a lovely evening at Wequassett with like-minded friends while honoring our greatest president and telling our next governor how he should run his campaign.

Let's come together to make this a great event and a strong start to the 2014 campaign to elect all Republicans on the ballot.

GETTYBURG ADDRESS DAY GETTING CLOSE, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19TH, CHARLIE BAKER WILL COME VISIT

October 20, 2013

Hi, Friends of Freedom –

Go, Red Sox! What a game. What a series so far. Talk about "can do" attitude! They are an inspiration.

Our 150th Anniversary Lincoln Gettysburg Celebration is just 21 days from today: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the beautiful Wequasset Resort in Harwich.

The Invitation to the Celebration of Abraham Lincoln's New Birth of Freedom Address at Gettysburg on November 19th (1863) 2013 can be read and printed out by clicking on this link:
Lincoln-Baker Invitation and Reply Form x.pdf

Just click on it and go to the printer symbol of the bottom of the picture and hit print.

Anyone needing help in getting the invitation printed should call Marie Acton at 508 945 2150. She will also have forms already printed for you to obtain.

The early response to the emailing from Chatham and the other participating RTCs is very encouraging. The heads of the RTCs will be meeting this Thursday to exchange reports and plan next steps.

We hope everyone will be able to come to this celebration of A New Birth of Freedom. As President Lincoln declared at Gettysburg, the promise of the Declaration of Independence had been redeemed by freeing African-Americans from bondage, bondage in which their ancestors had been kept since 1609.

Lincoln believed the black man was entitled to the fruit of his labors as much as the white. He saw freedom as the first step on the road to prosperity:

"The prudent, penniless beginner in the world labors for wages awhile, saves a surplus with which to buy tools or land for himself, then labors on his own account another while, and at length hires another new beginner to help him. This is the just and generous and prosperous system which opens the way to all, gives hope to all, and consequent energy and progress and improvement of condition to all."

That's how freedom and free market capitalism works.

Every generation has to jealously guard its freedoms. Human nature being what it is, those in power will whittle freedoms away when they can. Eternal vigilance and resistance is essential to the preservation of freedom.

There is no question that currently the national government and our Massachusetts state government are stifling freedom, free enterprise and economic growth with more and more regulations and excessive taxation - just think Obamacare and the automatic gas tax increase on top of a half billion dollar tax hike in Massachusetts.

Ronald Reagan warned that freedom can be lost in a generation so every generation must renew the fight for A New Birth of Freedom.

We can all learn from Lincoln's resolve, clear vision and perseverance going into the 2014 elections. Times may be grim, but things can be turned around. With so many seeming to be awakening to the disastrous governance in Washington and on Beacon Hill, the 2014 elections present a great opportunity.

As you probably know by now, Republican candidate for Governor Charlie Baker has agreed to join us in the celebration. Our program will focus on Lincoln's timeless message of the core necessity of freedom for mankind to enjoy "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Thumbnail image for Baker 2013.jpg
Charlie will discuss the relevance of that message today and what we have to do to effect a liberating change. To make change happen, we have to roll up our sleeves and work.

Charlie believes as do we that personal grassroots campaigning in each district will be a crucial component of his victory in 2014 as well as for every other Republican on the ticket. That's why he's coming here, to show his commitment to and support for GOTV, the GET OUT THE VOTE ground game. That's personal contact, neighbor to neighbor, door-to-door.

We'll talk more about GOTV in future meetings, emails and web postings. We did get an excellent detailed description of how GOTV has worked elsewhere at the September Orleans Inn breakfast from State Representative Keiko Orrall and Republican National Committeewoman Chanel Prunier. Charlie has let us know that MassVictory is hard at work developing new software that will make our grassroots campaigns much more effective -- and enjoyable.

We want as many Fighters for Freedom ($125 contribution) at the event as possible, but we do need a number of Sponsors ($500 and up) to put us over the top. Sponsors will get some extra personal time to discuss the campaign with Charlie. One way or the other, we will be very happy to have you there celebrating with us and looking forward to a victorious November 2014.

If you just can't make it, any contribution will help the cause and will be very welcome.

We need your name tag info as soon as possible but before November 12th (just call Marie Acton at 508 945 2150 with names and towns). We also need your checks payable to "A New Birth of Freedom" as soon as possible. Just mail your check with the Reply and Contribution Form (required by our state campaign legal officials) to CRTC Special Account, P.O. Box 408, North Chatham, MA 02650. You can also put your name tag information in the Reply Form.

Bottom line, a successful event financially will help a great deal to fund our 2014 GET OUT THE VOTE (GOTV) campaigns. We are grateful for Charlie’s help. It would be very nice to have a large and enthusiastic crowd to greet him and give him a warm glow as he drives the three hours home to Swampscott after we wind up.

Think of the Chatham RTC as a nonprofit like all the others except contributions are not tax deductible. We cannot do anything without financial support from our friends.

This is not only our only significant fundraiser of the year, it's by far the most ambitious for the committee ever for ourselves and the first time we have brought the RTCs together in a joint effort to build the strength of all of us for the 2014 election year.

The money residents of Chatham contribute to this joint event after expenses will go directly to the Chatham RTC. It's the same for the other RTCs for contributions from their townspeople. So how each RTC does in "sales" determines how much net proceeds it gets.

Have any questions?
Ask the chairmen.

INVITATION TO CELEBRATE THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF LINCOLN'S GETTYSBURG ADDRESS WITH REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR CHARLIE BAKER

One of the most memorable and thought-provoking statements by an American president was that of President Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg on November 19,1863, precisely 150 years ago. Lincoln's timeless message was that every generation has to renew the fight for freedom to ensure that our "government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from this earth."

Every generation must fight its own fight for "a new birth of freedom" Inevitably, it's human nature, those in power constantly seek more control and power that will erode citizens' "unalienable rights" to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

To honor this timeless message of Abraham Lincoln, Republican Town Committees of the Lower Cape have banded together to host a celebration of the Gettysburg Address on Tuesday, November 19th,150 years to the day after it was delivered,

We are pleased and grateful to have joining us in honoring our first Republican and greatest president the Republican candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in 2014 Charlie Baker. Charlie heartily endorses our plans for a 2014 GET OUT THE VOTE person to person campaign.

Charlie will participate in the program and in the socializing as well.

5 to 7:30 at the Wequassett Resort in Harwich.

CHATHAM REPUBLICANS MEET TUESDAY, SEP 3 AT 5 AT THE CHATHAM COMMUNITY CENTER

This meeting will be of special interest.

Since there will be an open seat for the 4th Barnstable state representative district in 2014, there is a great deal of interest stirring. Several have indicated they are considering running for the Republican nomination to be decided in the September 2014 primary.

The Chatham RTC is providing opportunities for potential candidates to introduce themselves and get acquainted.

The 4th Barnstable includes Chatham, Harwich, Precinct 3 in Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. There are about 35,000 voters in the district.

This Tuesday Leo Cakounes, who operates the largest organic cranberry farm in New England in Harwich, will be discussing his views of the challenges to be faced. Leo is scheduled for 5:05.

We also will meet with Matt Hart, also of Harwich, who has had 45 years of experience in Executive Sales, Marketing and Consulting Management. Matt will talk with us beginning about 5:50.

Everyone who believes fiscal discipline in government at every level is needed are welcome to attend, be they from Chatham or other towns.

NOTICES OF IMPORTANCE FOR THIS WEEK AND NEXT

We will skip our regular meeting date of Monday, July 15th since we had our special meeting on July 1st in large part for parade preparation. The next meeting is Monday, August 12th at 5 p.m. at the Chatham Community Center.

The parade was a great success. We had three vehicles, with our Dick Curtiss red pickup leading the way driven by John Crea. John Mancini drove his gorgeous green antique pickup that was loaded with kids and flags. Dick Bowers once again had his decorated Harwich yellow Jeep protecting our rear! Watch the video!

In addition to our Chatham marchers, we were joined this year with folks from Barnstable, Dennis, Harwich, Plymouth and Sherborn.

All of our many marchers wore their "For PETER Acton" badges in honor our good friend and colleague who left us this past week due to post-surgical complications.

The wake for for Peter is Thursday, July 15th, 5 to 8 p.m. at the Nickerson Funeral Home, 87 Crowell Road, Chatham. The funeral mass at Holy Redeemer on the corner of Old Harbor and Highland Avenue will take place Friday morning at 10.

Sally Foster will be receiving friends this coming Sunday, July 14th from 1 to 4 at the family home at 166 Cross Street. Blake Foster, a staunch conservative and active Chatham citizen, passed away June 25th after a long illness. Sally was a regular in our campaign phoning last November.
