Become a Member Of Lee County Republican Assembly
Lee County Republican Assembly,
a Chartered Affiliate of the National Federation of Republican
Assemblies (NFRA) is a political organization which promotes
conservative principles and candidates within the Republican Party.
Home of Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan and Fredrick Douglas
Republicans. Members at the local, state and national levels
work to recruit and elect Republican candidates who reflect the
Party’s true Conservative philosophy.
The first Republican Assembly was founded in
1934 in California. The Republican Assembly movement grew primarily
in the western part of the United States until, in 1996, several
state Republican Assemblies formalized their relationship to one
another through the creation of the NFRA, which was also tasked with
the establishment of state chapters in those parts of the country to
which the movement had not yet spread.
WHO ARE WE AND WHAT WE BELIEVE –
We are a Judeo-Christian Organization that seeks the TRUTH.
Inalienable Rights: We
believe that man’s “rights” flow from the Creator and the rights of
life, liberty, and justice cannot be legitimately granted or
rescinded by men.
We believe in the guiding force of moral law as expressed by the
Judeo- Christian ethic and contained in the Holy Scriptures of these
Self-Government: We believe
that the only answer to the current moral decline in our nation is a
return to the beliefs and standards of morality which our Founding
Fathers placed into the Constitution. With the framers of that
document, we believe President Adams’ statement that “Our
Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people: it is
wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” We understand
that the concept of self-government begins with governing one’s self
first, then family, community, state, and nation.
Education: We believe in
the rights of parents to a quality education for their children. We
support parental choice to create competition among schools, The
education of our children cannot be compromised by, or advance a
particular political agenda at the expense of the education of our
Taxes: We believe that the
federal tax system is abusive to the American people while
discouraging investment and growth. We believe in growth-oriented
tax policies which would gradually eliminate punitive income taxes
and move our tax system in the direction of use taxes and sales
Free Enterprise: We believe
in the free enterprise system as the best hope for men and women to
fulfill their economic hopes and dreams. We know that the free
market is the most efficient and the least costly system to deliver
the highest quality goods and services at the lowest price to the
consumer. We will support only those who support the free enterprise
system through legislation to reduce or eliminate intrusive
government intervention in the marketplace.
Family: We believe that the
traditional American family, defined as any persons related by
blood, marriage of a man and a woman and/or adoption, is the
cornerstone of our American society, and the government is duty
bound to protect the integrity of the family unit through
legislation and taxation policies.
Sanctity of Life: We
believe that the preborn child is a human being and deserves the
full protection of the law.
National Defense: We
believe in a strong and consistent national defense. We believe in
victory over, and not accommodation with tyranny in any form or
Right to Bear Arms: We
believe in the unqualified right of our citizens to keep and bear
arms without the intrusive hand of government.
Victims’ Rights: We believe
in the concept of victims’ rights over the rights of any convicted
criminal. We support a system of restitution as a deterrent to crime
Support of Israel: We
support the right of Israel to exist as a free and sovereign nation,
and as our most consistent ally in the Middle East, we believe its
continued safety and security are paramount for the peace and
stability of the region.
National Sovereignty: We
believe in an America first program in which Government’s first
concern is the welfare and protection of the American people. We do
not believe in trade protectionism but support political leaders who
will adopt policies that create fair and competitive trade.
We believe in the power of the individual over the power of the
state. We believe that only small government truly serves the needs
of the people.
WHAT WE DO – Stop False
Republicans & Ensure Our Principles Thrive.
Coordinate and Advertise Republican
Groups: We may not agree 100% of the time, but we exist
to support and advance Republican principles around the state
through informing our members about what’s going on with fellow
members, not only in the FRA, but in “Tea Party”, “Liberty”, “9-12”,
and “Republican Party” groups that share purpose and principle.
Additionally, we provide potential speakers for group events!
Inform on Political Action and
Activity: There are dozens of efforts to remove “RINO”
politicians and to stop big-government legislation, but no one group
is advertising it to the public and growing our ranks. The FRA is
committed to creating a more informed and educated population.
Support Grassroots Local
Chapters: Counties and other local areas have their own
concerns and candidates, and know better than some top-down,
detached structure on how to best grow and influence their
politicians. The FRA will collect dues, membership information, and
advertise in order to connect local principled Republicans with
local chapters so that new people can get involved and engaged with
the political process to cause a real, lasting, positive impact.
Support and Endorse Candidates for
Political and Party Office: When someone decides they
want to run for office, they need money, volunteers, and trusted
advisors. We provide lists of consultants, activists, and potential
donors from around the state who believe politics is about standing
for principles, not simply trying to gain power and a paycheck.
Restore the Republican
Party: We are the Republican Wing of the Republican
Party. The National Federal of Republican Assemblies is committed to
a Republican Party that maintains its brand and stands for
something, not ignoring principles for expediency. We are committed
to ensuring that the Republican Party stands for those principles
that create good government that the voters expect when electing
Republicans to office.
