What does RIRA stand for?

At the core of the Rhode Island Republican Assembly is the proposition that it is the duty of the public servant to place the common good ahead of his own.

  • This most basic requirement of good government has been lacking in Rhode Island for quite some time.
  • As conservatives, we demand of our leaders a superior level of honesty, integrity, and respect for the law.

  • To watchdog elected officials and insure their adherence to conservative Republican principles.

The Republican Wing of the Republican Party
  • Coming May 3, the Nevada Republican Assembly will hold their endorsing convention at the beautiful Siena Hotel Spa Casino in Reno. The event will also feature a presidential straw poll! Click below for details about registrations and the event schedule:

  • The Culture War Is Over Talk lacks historical context. During the hedonistic Roaring 20's and the Dirty Filthy Hippie 60's, the Left was probably pretty sure they had won the culture wars. Has the Left won the culture war? Pundits on all sides think that it has. But let's start with the biggie: same-sex marriage -- and then take a look at ten other issues . . .

  • “Years ago, I used to have 52 neighboring ranchers,” he said. “I’m the last man standing. How come? Because BLM regulated these people off the land and out of business.”

  • I never liked the atmosphere of Washington. I early saw that it was impossible to build up a race of which the leaders were spending most of their time, thought, and energy in trying to get into office, or in trying to stay there after they were in. So, for the greater part of my life, I have avoided Washington; and even now I rarely spend a day in that city which I do not look upon as a day practically thrown away. . .

  • Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don't know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That's thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. Mr. Camp's letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of the curious behavior of Democrats during the investigation. . .

  • The recent Supreme Court decision over-ruling some Federal Election Commission restrictions on political campaign contributions has provoked angry reactions on the left. That is what often happens whenever the High Court rules that the First Amendment means what it says — free speech for everybody. . .

  • The popular Firefox Web browser is the gateway used by millions to get everything on the Internet. It’s the tool that inquiring minds on the left should use to browse online dictionaries to find the definition of “tolerance" . . . but no diversity of thought or opinion is tolerated:

  • One of our students, in his commencement oration last May, gave a description of how he planted and raised an acre of cabbages. Piled high upon the platform by his side were some of the largest and finest cabbages that I have ever seen. He told how and where he had obtained the seed; he described his method of preparing and enriching the soil, of working the land, and harvesting the crop; and he summed up by giving the cost of the whole operation. In the course of his account of this comparatively simple operation, this student had made use of much that he had learned in composition, grammar, mathematics, chemistry, and agriculture. I wish that any one who does not believe it possible to make a subject like cabbages interesting in a commencement oration could have heard the hearty cheers which greeted the speaker when, at the close of his speech, he held up one of the largest cabbages on the platform for the audience to look at and admire. . .

About the Rhode Island Republican Assembly

The RIRA is a private membership organization of Republican activists who work to promote conservative ideals within the Republican Party of Rhode Island. Most of our members are also active members of the Rhode Island Republican State Central Committee and/or of the various Republican city and town committees throughout the state. Among other things, the RIRA hosts monthly dinner meetings, where like-minded conservatives discuss current events, debate intra-party issues, formulate political strategies, as well as hear from select conservative speakers.
