Smith Mountain Lake
In loving memory of
Jean Aldrich Snidow

We believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Additionally serves as a focal point for all Lake-area Republican organizations... County Committees, Women's Clubs and small local organizations... to share information and ideas, to communicate specifics on events and to unify our efforts on behalf of the Republican Cause.

Please contact us with information on your events ~ dates, times, locations, directions - and photos after the fact. Republicans, we must unite! Also you can get membership applications for the Franklin County and for Bedford County Republican Parties here:

On the 3rd Monday of January each year, we honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. Click here to read actual facts about why MLK was a Republican and how NOT the Democrats but the Republicans fought to free blacks from slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom (13th Amendment), citizenship (14th Amendment) and the right to vote (15th Amendment), passed the civil rights laws of the 1860s, started the NAACP, were key to the passage of civil rights legislation in 1957, 1960, 1964 and 1965, crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing, etc. etc. etc. Get the facts about blacks and the Republican party in the link above – facts that the mainstream media refuses to tell us.

Goode narrowly lost that election by only 727 votes (out of 316,893) to Democrat Tom Perriello.   That really illustrates the point - EVERY VOTE COUNTS!!

We in America do not have government by the majority, we have government by the majority who vote.
          ~ Thomas Jefferson,   1787


That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government,

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense,

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.
