New Group Defends RR Name Claim

In a press release signed by Jeff Alltus (pictured at recent Tea Party event), Hendrick Mills and Cliff Noll, a new group explains why it lays claim to the name "Kootenai County Reagan Republicans":

We have formed Kootenai County Reagan Republicans to safeguard the conservative values that we associate with President Ronald Reagan. It is Ronald Reagan who has had his identity stolen by a group calling themselves “Reagan Republicans“. The flyers recently mailed to Kootenai County residents from the so-called “Reagan Republicans” mislead voters into thinking Ronald Reagan would have supported all of these candidates, (WWRD).   It is as if this group has taken the name of Ronald Reagan in vain. Many people have accused the “Reagan Republicans” of charging candidates $5000 to get the “Reagan Republican” endorsement, we wanted to remove the perception that candidates were buying endorsements."

Question: Which Reagan Republican group best reflects the principles of the late Republican president?

    To truly honor the conservative values loved by Ronald Reagan, we believe that a candidate must embrace and work for the following:
    1. Less government regulation and taxation at the federal, state, and local levels.
    2. An end to deficit spending.
    3. States’ rights and local jurisdictions’ rights and maintaining the rights of the people. The federal government should not be taking over more and more of the powers traditionally reserved to state and local authorities or the people.
    4. Defense of the Constitution and its limitation on governmental powers.
    5. Defense of individual property rights.
    6. Protection of the traditional family.
