DALLAS, OR—“In God we trust” became the official motto of the Polk County Republican Party at the July 12 general meeting. The resolution making it so was unanimously approved by the body.
Along with the Yamhill Republicans passage of this resolution may be a first for any political party in any state, at any level—to adopt the slogan—in the history of our Republic.
Here is the text adopted as Resolution 2021-01:
On adopting “In God we trust” as official party motto
Polk County Republican Party Resolution 2021-01
“Whereas, “In God we trust,” was adopted as the official motto of the United States Joint Resolution by the 84th Congress (Pub.L. 84–140) and approved by President Dwight Eisenhower on July 30, 1956; and
“Whereas, “In God we trust” has appeared on paper money since 1957, as well as coins; and
“Whereas the final stanza of the U.S. National Anthem reads “In God is our trust,” and
“Whereas, the motto does not violate the First Amendment concerning respecting “an establishment of religion,” (as it is not giving a government preference to any religious institution); and
“Whereas, the State of Florida equally adopted “In God we trust” for its motto in 2006; and
“Whereas, without God’s assistance, the United States has no hope of keeping its freedom; and
“Whereas, the Polk County Republican Party requires God’s support to thrive and achieve success;
“Therefore, the Polk County Republican Party adopts the phrase “In God we trust” as its official motto; and will honor our Creator with implementation of the phrase to be placed at the bottom of the party’s name on its website and all new banners, flyers and brochures created for the party’s outreach at fairs.”
