Nashville, Tenn. - July 4, 2018 - The Tennessee Republican Party released the following statement:
"Almost two and a half centuries ago, our founders built this country on the principles of limited government and individual freedom, as well as economic and religious freedom. They envisioned a country that would be ruled not by its elites, but by all its citizens. Those same principles and values continue to this day. As we celebrate our nation's independence, we we remember that pivotal day 242 years ago, the leaders who orchestrated it, how far we have come as a country, and thank the brave men and women who have fought to defend our country’s freedom and liberties."
