WHAT WE BELIEVE
Freedom & prosperity belong to all Texans. We believe in a Texas that provides equal opportunity for everyone: where businesses can grow and prosper free from over-regulation, and families are free to raise and educate their children in a safe and strong community. The bedrock principles of limited government and personal responsibility are what make our state the shining star above all the others, and will ensure the success of Texans for generations to come.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH
We believe that the right to express our opinions, our grievances and our dissent in the public square should never be censored or restrained by government, corporations or the media. This fundamental human right is the backbone of a free society, and liberty cannot exist in its absence.
The Second Amendment is truly the first among equals. In fact, it ensures the security of all our other liberties. We believe that an individual’s right to self-defense is inherent in natural law that our freedom to possess firearms shall not be infringed in any way.
Life is the most sacred of all the rights—it is the ultimate requirement to liberty. We believe that the sanctity of human life, created in the image of God, should be protected from fertilization to natural death.
A society of free enterprise, unencumbered by government interference or subsidies, is the bedrock of our economic success in this nation. Economic freedom is necessary for the sovereignty of a nation and the liberty of its people.
Secure borders are absolutely essential to our national sovereignty and safety. Immigration policies must serve to protect our nation’s security and economy, and they must be enforced uniformly.
LIMITED GOVERNMENT / PERSONAL LIBERTY
We believe that citizens’ lives should be as free as possible from government intrusion. Families should have the freedom to raise and educate their children in the manner they see fit. Churches and religious institutions should have the freedom to promote their values in accordance with their First Amendment rights.
RESPECTING OUR MILITARY & FIRST RESPONDERS
We honor our servicemen and women and first responders who put their lives on the line every day to keep our nation and our neighborhoods safe. We believe that investing in local law enforcement—not defunding them—is key to protecting our communities. At the same time, trust in local law enforcement agencies must be paramount, requiring accountability and transparency from all governing and policing authorities.
EQUALITY FOR ALL
We believe in equal opportunity for
all American citizens—regardless of race or ethnicity or gender. We believe that economic freedom, strong families, expanded educational opportunity, and safer streets are vital to empowering every citizen to achieve their own American dream.
Individual liberty requires personal responsibility and a firm moral compass. These essential values of self-governance are first and foremost learned in the family unit; the most basic unit of our society. Families in this nation should be encouraged and empowered, and parental freedom to make the best educational, health and other choices for their children should be respected.
The voice of citizens is paramount in maintaining our God-given freedoms, and our elections are crucial to preserving our constitutional republic. The RPBC stands for fair, open, and transparent elections that ensure that the vote of every citizen counts.
