About Us

Who We Are

The Republican Club of Greater East Polk County is an organization of concerned citizens who are inspired by the need to curtail excessive government growth, spending, taxation, and regulation. Our mission is to mobilize, organize and educate our fellow residents on Local, County and State Government and to influence public policy consistent with three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Our Mission Statement

The Republican Club of Greater East Polk County supports individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We believe every human being is endowed by God with inherent rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  • We support a strict construction of the Bill of Rights as a defense against tyranny; the expansion of those rights to all voluntary consensual conduct under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments; and the requirements of equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment.
  • We support the Constitutional restrictions on federal government powers enumerated in Article I, Section 8 as an absolute limit on all government functions and programs.
  • We oppose the adoption of broad and vague powers under the guise of general welfare or interstate commerce.
  • We oppose all restrictions on the voluntary and honest exchange of value in a free market. We favor minimal, equitable, and fair taxation for the essential functions of government. We oppose all legislation that concedes Congressional power to any regulatory agency, executive department, or international body.
  • We support the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, the republican form of government it requires, and the right of all citizens to fair and equitable representation.
  • We believe these are also the proper positions of the Republican Party.

Our Core Values

Fiscal Responsibility

Republican Club of Greater East Polk County supports fiscal responsibility through reasonable spending, balanced budgets and reduced debt at the federal, state and local levels. Assuring that government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to earn and spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor. Deficit spending as now practiced in Washington D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of our children

Constitutionally Limited Government

We support a constitutionally limited government of the people, by the people and for the people to protect the personal liberty of the individual, within the rule of law. We believe in the original intent of our founders and reject the flagrant disregard of the Constitution as practiced in the courts. We support states’ rights for those powers not expressly stated in the Constitution. We are inspired by our founding documents and regard the Constitution of the United States to be the supreme law of the land.

Free Markets

Republican Club of Greater East Polk County supports a free market economy. A free market economy is the foundation of the country and its people. Government’s interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and growth. Therefore, we support free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business through unfounded rules and regulation.
