“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”
—President Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964
The Polk County Republican Party of Texas believes government exists to protect the lives, liberty, and property of its people. We want our government to leave us alone, minimize our tax burden, spend our money wisely, and limit itself to its legitimate role. We don’t need them to solve all our or the rest of the world’s problems. We understand free market principles are vital to any successful economy and recognize the path to prosperity for Polk County residents is best accomplished through a free enterprise society unencumbered by government interference.These are the conservative principles that unite our party, and our members seek to elect Texans with integrity who will govern by these shared principles.We seek to promote the principles upon which our nation and our state were founded: freedom, liberty,personal responsibility, and accountability.
We will advocate fiscally-sound, common-sense solutions that will promote job and economic growth, provide the best education for our children, and create a path to prosperity for Polk County residents.We understand that our economic success depends upon free market principles and we support a foreign policy that relies on peace through the strength of our national defense and avoids foreign deployments or entanglements that erode our liberties.
