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 Senate races are key in the 2014 election. There is one race that doesn’t seem to be getting much attention. Kevin Wade is running against Harry Reid’s “pet” in Delaware. We encourage you to visit Kevin’s website so you can see Kevin’s qualifications for yourself. Press the donate button and help Kevin Wade in the last [...]

  • The Shasta County Republican Assembly (SCRA) has followed the rules set forth in our bylaws and has acted in accordance with our 80-year tradition and rules. . . The Democrats and the liberal press crusade for “fairness” and seem to think it trumps the rule of law or in this case, by-laws.

  • But we also need a reality check here. The bigger problems with gridlock and dysfunction are not because individuals do not trust each other; they are because of larger factors in the political process and the culture.

  • I strongly disagree with my friends at the local, state and national level who are discouraged, disappointed and disillusioned. In my opinion, there are more reasons to be encouraged now than at any time in my 53 years at the national level of the conservative movement. . .

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Indiana Republican Assembly Endorses Candidates for Fall Election BEECH GROVE, IN, September 30, 2014 - The Indiana Republican Assembly endorses these conservative candidates: Connie Lawson Indiana Secretary of State, Kelly Mitchell Indiana State Treasurer, Mike Delph State Senate District 29, Greg Walker State Senate District 41, Tim Harman State Rep District 17, [...]

  • Some of today’s conservatives are less inclined to demonstrate the same level of solidarity because establishment Republicans have failed to welcome them into the party with open arms. But a brief review of more recent GOP history will reveal that even Ronald Reagan and his supporters were regarded with fear and loathing by Republican party regulars when they first appeared on the scene. Nonetheless, neither Reagan nor his followers petulantly sat out an election simply because the GOP establishment insisted on, as Manning phrases it, “disrespecting” them. The Reaganites were not, in other words, whiners.

  • It turns out that the supposed al-Qaeda on-the-run crowd wasn’t actually surrendering, but instead was hoofing it to the anarchy in Syria to concoct a plot to target Western airliners with explosives. . .

  • The delicacy and responsibility of my position in this matter can be appreciated when it is known that this was the first time in the history of the South that a Negro had been invited to take part on a programme with white Southern people on any important and national occasion. Our race should not neglect to give due credit to the courage that these Atlanta men displayed in extending this invitation; but the directors had told the Negroes from the beginning that they would give them fullest and freest opportunity to represent themselves in a creditable manner at every stage of the progress of the Exposition, and from the first day to the last this promise was kept. . .

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.
