Why are you a Traditional Conservative Republican
By Richard Dodson Posted in Hot News, Old Meeting on 2018-03-24

CCRMC

Why are you a Traditional Conservative Republican?

Since January 2018 we have been publicizing our CCRMC as traditional conservative political club. This identity has been reflected in our membership and programs. We have had several inquiries identifying what are our fundamental values. Those listed are not inclusive but represent a general listing.

 

·        We affirm that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of      life,     liberty,  and the pursuit of happiness

·        We believe in religious liberty as the first freedom to be protected as the right of people to practice their faith.

·        We acknowledge the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right to protect one’s life and property

·        We believe our culture is based upon traditional marriage and the sanctity of innocent human life.

·        We believe government derives its power from the people that we are a Representative Republic.

·        We believe our society emphasizes self-reliance and individualism for a more prosperous economy.

·        We support a public education system available to all citizens of our country.

·        We believe in a strong military that defends our borders and protect our liberty.

·        We respect our Judeo-Christian heritage--understanding change and reform are not identical.

·        We support policies of limited taxation and government spending.

·        We acknowledge personal freedom and property ownership are inseparable and are to be protected equally.

·       We believe in an inclusive party respectful of different points of view—“no litmus test”.

If you agree that our listing mirrors your own convictions, I extend a personal initiation for you to join the MAGIC—“Expecting the Unexpected”.  You may consider joining our club using PayPal or copy the application from our website (WWW.CCRMC.ORG).  If you have any questions, please call or email.

Type of Republicans
By Richard Dodson Posted in Hot News, Old Meeting on 2018-02-22
COME AND JOIN THE MAGIC
Politics was rather simple growing up in Texas when everyone was a Democrat.  In fact, Historians considered Texas as a one-party state.  Further, most Texans thought Sam Rayburn, our famous East Texas Congressman and Speaker of the House, “sat next to God”.
But, politics began to change when our distinguished Governor, John Connally, joined the Republican Party.  By the time Ronal Reagan became President a great majority of Texas voters became Republicans but that began creating problems. 
Under Ronald Reagan the different factions of Republicans were:
1.       Conservative Republicans
a.       Believe in free enterprise, strong national defense, oppose high taxes and labor unions
2.       The Religious Right
a.       Strong conservatives on social policies, opposes abortion, critics of multiculturalism and tight restrictions on immigration
3.       Progressive Wing
a.       Rockefeller Republicans, favor free trade, deregulation, welfare reform, gun control laws, relaxed immigration
4.       Social Conservatives
a.       Favored state rights, gun right while opposing abortion and same sex marriage
5.       Libertarians
a.       Favored a Constitutional Republic, favor gay rights and split on abortion and favor free speech
 
After discussion with friends and other Republicans, I identified with CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS, but that was not quite clear enough!  Because present day politics demands that I choose WHAT TYPE OF CONSERVATIVE:
1.       Traditional Conservative—Old-fashioned traditional values
2.       Social Conservative—State rights and gun rights
3.       Religious Conservative—Oppose abortion and same sex marriage
4.       Fiscal Conservative—Balanced budget and individual responsibility
5.       Blue Collar Conservative—Moderate on social issues concerning immigration and religion
Hasn’t the political environment become a little too complicated?  In my final analysis each faction shares common precepts, but I have come to the conclusion that I am an old-fashioned TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN.  I wouldn’t mind returning to our heritage of early years regarding religious and social customs, but regardless, as Reagan stipulated, all are welcomed in the CCRMC family.
Now, I want to extend an open invitation to join CCRMC.  You will become informed about the issues facing Collin County.  You will get the opportunity to meet elected officials and you may meet new friends.  CCRMC meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at the new Collin County Republican Headquarters at 15th St and Independence.
