The Republican Philosophy
…that the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our Nation’s strength.
…the government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual’s creative ability can flourish.
…that government activities should be limited to those things which people cannot do at all, or cannot do very well for themselves.
…the most effective government is government closest to the people.
…that those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
…that equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity belong to all, regardless of race, creed, age, gender, or national origin.
…that the preservation of our Nation and the security of our citizens depend upon the Constitution, the laws and the courts, and that respect for them is the responsibility of every individual.
…that government is accountable for maintaining solid money and a responsible economy. Individual rights, liberties and properties are continually eroded when citizens are oppressed by excessive taxation, inflation, government waste and over-regulation.
…that government is responsible for national defense and that only a strong America can remain a free America.
…that it is absolutely essential to maintain a strong national defense posture in order that we may at all times negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness, in our continuing efforts toward world peace and friendship.
…that these concepts are the foundation of our national strength and that the Republican Party, which is committed to their preservation, is the Party of Today and the Party of the Future.
Purpose of the Texas Federation of Republican Women(TFRW)
The Texas Federation of Republican Women (TFRW) actively supports Republican candidates, while providing strength and unity for political action. They encourage Republican women to run for office and train them to become effective Republic Party workers. Our party feels it is important to inform our members and the electorate through political education.
Members stay current by reading our self-published TFRW quarterly publication “The Texas Star,” and other materials, and by attending local and statewide meetings that help members broaden and unify their interest and education.
TFRW makes sure its members stay active not only by offering a source of year-round services for Republican women volunteers, but also by letting them cooperate with the party organization to undertake special assignments and campaign projects.
Mission of the Guadalupe County Republican Women
As a Member of the Texas Federation of Republican Women, we share the mission of TFRW to provide strength and unity for political action within the Republican Party of Texas.
The members of GCRW believe, as the Republican Philosophy states, that the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our Nation’s strength.
We stand with the Republican Party in supporting candidates who believe that government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual’s creative ability can flourish and that government activity should be limited to those things which people cannot do at all, or cannot do very well for themselves.
We believe in limited government, low taxes and strong national defense. We believe these values are under assault and will work to preserve them in the government of our community, state and nation.
