WELCOME TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

Tired of being told what to think and ready to think for your self you have come to the right place

Grand Old Party

It began in a little school house in Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1854. A small group of dedicated abolitionists gathered to fight the expansion of slavery, and they gave birth to a Party dedicated to freedom and equal opportunity.

The name “Republican” was chosen, alluding to Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party and conveying a commitment to the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Party was formally organized in July 1854 by thousands of anti-slavery activists at a convention in Jackson, Michigan. And it was no accident that two years later, in 1856, the first Republican National Convention took place in Philadelphia, where the Constitution was written.

 

 

Party of Freedom

Though popularized in a Thomas Nast cartoon, the GOP’s elephant symbol originated during the 1860 campaign, as a symbol of Republican strength. Republicans envisioned “free soil, free speech, free labor.” Under the leadership of President Abraham Lincoln, the GOP became the Party of the Union as well.

President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, but it was the entire Republican Party who freed the slaves. The 1864 Republican National Convention called for the abolition of slavery, and Congressional Republicans passed the 13th Amendment unanimously, with only a few Democrat votes.

The early women’s rights movement was solidly Republican, as it was a continuation of abolitionism. They were careful not to be overly partisan, but as did Susan B. Anthony, most suffragists favored the GOP. The 19th Amendment was written by a Republican senator and garnered greater support from Republicans than from Democrats.

What We Believe

We believe the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

We believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

We believe free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

We believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

We believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which which governs least.

We believe the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

We believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

We believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

Finally, we believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.

Do you believe?

Why Should I Be A Republican ?

The Republican Party Believes that all power lies with the individual and the ability of the individual to make chart there own future without all-powerful government that is willing to do everything for you and leaving you with less freedom

Low Taxes Helps individuals and families have the ability to pool themselves out of poverty and create opportunity
All humans are born with unalienable Rights and that includes the unborn, we as a society need to protect those who are voiceless and can’t defend them selves
The First Amendment after the 2-second amendment is the most important we should have the right to voice our opinions without fear of appraisal from our government
The level of the spectator on a hillside, the sable cloud.
