Our Mission Statement

We are committed to advancing: limited government, lower taxes, less spending, and individual liberty. Our specific goals are to grow the Republican Party by reaching new voters, advancing the Texas Party Platform, which is grounded in conservative principles, and keeping Texas prosperous and free. 

Conservative Principles
The Republican philosophy is a true reflection of traditional Texas values. It is these values, core Republican principles, that will sustain Texas into the future and continue to make our State strong, prosperous, and proud.

Strong Families
Families intent on giving their children the hope of a better tomorrow, the promise of a safe and secure today, and an appreciation and respect of yesterday.
Principled, Innovative Leadership
Principled leaders with an understanding of Texas’ heritage and a clear vision for Texas’ future. Leadership that is unwavering in the face of criticism, steadfast when confronted with adversity, and committed to building a better state.
Limited Government
A government that promotes policies to unlock individual potential and unleash economic growth. Government that does not try to be all things to all people.

Honest Compassion
A society assisting those in need rather than a government trying to solve every problem by just throwing more money at it.

Opportunity for All
The opportunity to chart one’s own course, start a business, chase a dream, or build a life regardless of gender, race, or religion.

Quality Education
An educational system that prepares children for tomorrow’s workplace regardless of race, wealth or geographical location. Education is the bedrock of freedom and the gateway to opportunity.

Personal Responsibility
Individuals taking personal responsibility for their own actions and a criminal justice system based on this idea. With freedom comes responsibility.

Freedom that is God given, affirmed by our Founding Fathers, articulated in the Declaration of Independence, and protected by the Constitution.

Rugged Individualism
The entrepreneurial spirit of the individual that continues to solidify Texas as a world economic power.
