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.

Module Positions and Styles




All modules are fully collapsible


What exactly is a collapsing module? It's quite simple, whenever a module is not published to a postion that position does not appear on the frontend of the template. Consider the example below:



This particular row has 6 module positions available to publish to. Let's say you only want to publish to 4 of these positions. The template will automatically collapse the modules you do not want to use and adjust the size of the modules accordingly:



If no modules are published to the row the entire row itself will not show. The best feature of this is every module can be published to its own unique pages so the layout of your site can change on every page!


Infinite Layouts


Because there are so many module positions available in so many different areas, the number of layouts you can create are limitless! For example, if you would like to show your main content area on the right side of your site but still have a column of modules, simply published your modules to the right or right_inset positions or both. The same would be true for the opposite, if you want a column on the left simply publish modules to left or left_inset. Of course you can always choose to not have a column at all. Remember, any module not published to will automatically collapse and the remaining area will automatically adjust. There is no need to choose a pre-defined layout for your entire site, simply use the power of collpasing module positions and take advantage of the numerous amount of module positions to create any layout you can dream of! Be sure to checkout the layout of modules below.


Dozens of Modules


Below is a complete list of all the module positions available for this template.




How to install and setup module styles:

  1. Download any module you wish to publish to your site.
  2. In the backend of Joomla navigate to the menu item Extensions/Install Uninstall


  3. Browse for the module's install file and click Upload File & Install.
  4. Once the module has be installed navigate to the menu item Extensions/Module Manager (same menu as above)
  5. Find the Module just installed and click on it's title.
  6. Change any parameters that you wish and be sure to set it to published and publish it to your desired module position.
  7. To apply a module style simply fill in the module class suffix field with any of this template's included module styles. This parameter setting is found under Module Parameters on the right side of the screen.


  8. Assign what pages you would like the module to appear on and finally click Save.

The Republican Wing of the Republican Party
  • The Indiana Republican Assembly (INRA) has endorsed conservative candidate JD Miniear for US House 7th District for the Indiana Primaries on May 6, 2014. Miniear is running to unseat Andre Carson (D), and would be the first Republican to win that seat in 42 years.

  • Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can't change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn't some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Intellectuals fretting about income disparity are oddly silent regarding the decline of the two-parent family. . .

  • One group in banking stands out as highly paid—federal bank regulators. Fewer than 7% of employees in any of these regulatory agencies earned less than $50,000. In other words, 93% of the employees in these federal bank regulatory agencies earned more than the average banker's salary in 2012. . .

  • It is a matter of no small importance to the success of the people of my race in Mississippi that business men, teachers, and the members of the different religious denominations are uniting disinterestedly in the effort to give the coloured children of the state a proper and adequate education, and that they are using their influence to encourage the masses of the people to get property and build homes. . .

  • In the 1950s 35 percent of American workers belonged to labor unions. This fell to 20.1 percent in 1983 and 11.3 percent in 2013. Between 1983 and 2013, union membership fell from 17.7 to 14.5 million while the population of the United States grew from 233.79 million to 316.99 million. . . Unions are in decline, yet they are still the most that powerful political structure in the United States and will remain so for the foreseeable future. But much has changed. As unions have been beaten back from corporate America they have moved to organize the public sector . . .

  • 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.”

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.
