Welcome to the Rock Island County Republican Party!
Welcome to the Rock Island County Republican Party website! I hope you are here to learn about our positions because you see us as a potential home for you.
The other side puts out a lot of nonsense about what it means to be a Republican. For the record, most of us are not ‘Millionaires and Billionaires’. We want clean water and air. Most of us have or used to have elderly loved ones, children and loved ones who we want to see reach their full potential and have full and productive lives.
We have jobs, or wish we had good jobs. Most of us worship in the religious denomination of our choice. Most of us pay taxes and worry about paying bills and saving for college, retirement, or some other family priority. All of us are concerned about the future of America, our state, our county, our town.
We believe that America is a great country. We believe that American values are worth fighting for and defending. We believe that what makes America unique is that from the day they are born American children are taught that they can become anything, that anything is possible in America. If this sounds familiar, you are in the right place.
Liberals sometime attack what is known as “American exceptionalism”. What makes America exceptional is the lack of social boundaries that restrict where a person can end up. Americans see insurmountable problems and immediately start working on solutions. Americans invented flight, space flight, mass production, and electronic communications. Americans are responsible for most of the great inventions that have changed the face of the planet. It is our “can-do spirit” that makes America Exceptional.
Liberals will say people who belong in some form to a minority group should be a Democrat. That is because Democrats are a hodge-podge of special interests. Most think all answers come in big government, some do not. Some believe in God, others think God has no place in America.
What makes a Republican is their deeply seated beliefs and values. Republicans come in all colors and beliefs. A Republican is anyone who thinks big government supported by big taxes hurts their ability to achieve their dreams and take care of their priorities. A Republican is someone who thinks that children deserve the right to take risks to achieve success and that people are best off if the rules encourage people to become their best and achieve their highest level of human potential. If you are concerned that our efforts at building and continuously expanding the social safety net supporting traditional family values, then you are a Republican.
Republicans believe that people regardless of race, creed or color should be encouraged to be everything their human potential will allow them to become and that when people achieve their full potential, we all are better off. It is people, not big government that makes America great!
