In 1787, shortly after the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, a woman interested in the proceedings approached Benjamin Franklin. "Well, doctor," she asked, "what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" The venerable champion of American liberty replied, "A republic, madame, if you can keep it."
President Ronald Reagan once said: “To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last--but eat you he will.”
All Americans need to become involved in our political process by learning as much as possible about the issues of interest to them, and more importantly to our nation, and by helping to elect the most qualified candidates. We must stop sitting back and hoping that someone else will make things right. We have a responsibility to our children and grandchildren to make our great country the best it can be, they deserve no less. We must improve their educational system and reduce the excessive size and costs of the government. The best place to start is in our own county and state. Someone once said that all politics is local. We need to heed that challenge.
Many people ask us how Republicans feel on a particular issue. To help, the Republican National Committee has produced a 67 page document outlining all of our positions for the 2008 election. The national GOP Platform Statement requires Adobe Acrobat Reader
We also keep an index of some of the speeches from our Candidates. You can view these speeches with your computer. To view most of our videos you will need to have the Real Media player.
Because so many people already use one or more of the existing local forums we encourage all of our readers who would like to participate in online dicussions to do so there. Just click on the Forums to visit our list..
If you are interested in writing for this webpage, please submit your article to our webmaster for consideration.
We welcome all volunteers who would like to help by giving their time or by donating to the Republican Party. For more information call the headquarters or send a message to our webmaster. Our headquarters is not open full time.
More than one hundred and fifty years ago, Americans who had gathered to protest the expansion of slavery gave birth to a political Party that would save the Union – the Republican Party.
In 1860, Abraham Lincoln of Illinois carried the Republican banner in the Presidential election and was elected the Party’s first President. He became one of our nation’s greatest leaders … and one of our Party’s greatest heroes.
Every day, we strive to fulfill Lincoln’s vision: a country united and free, in which all people are guaranteed equal rights, under the law, and the opportunity to pursue their dreams. If we are to continue to survive as a great nation, we must preserve our great REPUBLIC!
America’s legacy goes beyond the borders of America. It can be seen in free governments all over the world and it is up to the members of the Republican Party to continue this legacy.
Lincoln’s successors have been united by a common purpose – defending freedom at home and promoting it abroad. Today, members of the Republican Party must come together as never before and work for the principles that our forefathers set forth in our Constitution. We must remain a beacon for the oppressed and less fortunate people of our Country and the World.
President Ronald Reagan once said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
We must do all within our power to preserve our great REPUBLIC! We cannot be the generation where freedom in America is lost, maybe forever!
Let’s get to work!
