We welcome you to the Anchorage Republican Women’s Club website. We are an organization with almost 50 years in the city of Anchorage. We believe conservative, Republican women are the very heart and soul of our party.
We work diligently to elect “true” conservatives and hold them accountable in the beliefs below. We are very proud to have helped elect three Republican Women to the Alaska State House of Representatives, and two Republican Women to the Alaska State Senate. We believe we are in a current battle for the very essence of what America is, and WE ARE Republicans because:
We BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
We BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
We BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
We BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
We BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
We BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
We BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
We BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
We BELIEVE the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
No one said it better than President Ronald Reagan in his second inaugural address:
Two visions of the future, two fundamentally different ways of governing – their government of pessimism, fear and limits, or ours of hope, confidence, and growth. Their government sees people only as members of groups. Ours serves all the people of America as individuals. Theirs lives in the past, seeking to apply the old failed policies to an era that has passed them by. Ours learns from the past and strives to change by boldly charting a new course for the future.
In the next election take the time to read the GOP Platform before you vote for a “Republican!” Ask them if THEY have read it!!!
