There are many issues that define the Republican party and on this page we intend to help you stay educated. We will continuously be changing up the issues to keep this informative but we begin with the basics, our Constitution.
The constitution is not a living, breathing document. The idea of loose constructionism was what the British constitution was built on and what our country’s founders were trying to escape. The government has been afforded few and named responsibilities and it should focus on doing those more efficiently. All of our rights are granted to us through the constitution and by God and must be protected at all costs.
Please take the time to understand our founding document because without these principles firmly ingrained it’s hard to fight back against the encroaching activism.
“The judge who always likes the results he reaches in a bad judge.” – Antonin Scalia
“No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words “no” and “not” employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.” – Edmund A. Opitz
The U.S. Constitution establishes a government based on “federalism,” or the sharing of power between the national, and state (and local) governments. Our power-sharing form of government is the opposite of “centralized” governments, such as those in England and France, under which national government maintains total power.
While each of the 50 states has its own constitution, all provisions of state constitutions must comply with the U.S. Constitution. For example, a state constitution cannot deny accused criminals the right to a trial by jury, as assured by the U.S. Constitution’s 6th Amendment.
Under the U.S. Constitution, both the national and state governments are granted certain exclusive powers and share other powers.
Under President Obama it is quite clear that he intends to take from those who have and give it to those who don’t. It’s imperative that Republicans understand how to defeat this argument and why it is of the utmost importance. We have seen progressives attempt to destroy the family unit and the devastation it has caused inner city poor families. We cannot allow them to destroy our economic system which encourages hard work, savings, wealth creation, and much much more!
As they say all politics are local. As the Republican party fights to shrink the size of government, the ideal result will be that decision making will eventually begin to filter back to the state, and cities, and local municipalities. It is imperative that we have strong conservative members of our community actively involved and fighting to make sure we are well represented in everything from the school board, city council, state representatives, etc.
There are a number of ways to get active in your community and in the coming months we will continue to post the best ways for you to accomplish this. Please continue to check back with us and we push for our voices to be heard and we reshape this country to one that is trained and ready for success.
After having presided over the worst economic recovery of any recession in the last 6 decades President Obama has 1 strategy to get re-elected…..Class warfare. Many voters have given the president the benefit of the doubt over the last 4 years and they have come to the conclusion that he is simply ill prepared to run this country and that his economic policies of tax the rich (and then the middle class) do not work. The fact remains, you will always spend your money better than the government will.
For far too long the Republican party has gone along to get along and we have a 15 trillion dollar deficit to thank for that. Instead of big spending, earmarking, moderate republicans it is imperative that we elect Republicans who are strong fiscal conservatives. Jim Demint argues that the Republican battle for the next few decades must be for Libertarians and Conservatives to unite so we can stop the spending, increase our liberties, shrink the government, and decentralize power back to the states.
A Republican party with these principles will not only excel in the decades to come, but we will have a stronger economy and country as we look to compete against the world
It is our job to help make sure we are providing the local community with as much info as we can relating to the work our elected officials are engaged in. In this video area we intend to provide new video as often as possible so you can stay up to date on both the issues and elections of the coming year!
