For those that have wondered why the Republican Party uses an elephant as its party symbol it is a symbol of strength. It was popularized in a Thomas Nast cartoon. Nast was known as “Father of the American Cartoon”. GOP stands for the “Grand Old Party”.

John C. Frémont in 1856 ran as the first Republican nominee for President. He was a explorer, politician, and soldier who became known as “The Great Pathfinder”. On Nov. 4, 1856, Democrat James Buchanan defeated Republican John C. Frémont with 174 electoral votes to Frémont’s 114.

Many states have a city or town named after John C. Fremont including one on North Carolina.

The Republican Party right from its start has been the Party of Prosperity. One of the ways the Republican Party helped the United States to grow and prosper was by promoting the building of railroads which help people to spread thru-out the county building new towns and cities AND businesses.

Another goal of the party was to promote FREE commerce with all nations and political connection with none. They also encouraged science and the arts and the spreading of knowledge wishing to make the U.S. a more modern society.

The Republican Party today continues to promote prosperity by lowering taxes, cutting regulations which does nothing but raises costs. In North Carolina the Republican House and Senate are lowering taxes, cutting regulations, improving our schools, building and maintaining roads, etc.

In 2010 the Democrats who had run the state government for about 140 years left us with a debt of 2.5 BILLION dollars. Today the Republican run House and Senate has turned the economy around to the point that we now have a 2 billion dollar surplus.
