Proposed Resolutions For Republican Precinct Conventions

After the primary on Tuesday, we have precinct conventions. I'm proposing the following resoultions:


WHEREAS the Republican Party of Texas adopted its platform at the 2012 state convention, and

WHEREAS it is necessary that there be a starting point for the development of the 2014 party platform,

BE IT RESOLVED THAT Precinct________________________ affirms and adopts the 2012 platform as the baseline for the 2014 platform, limited only by the adoption of additional resolutions by the precinct convention that may add an additional plank or contradict an existing plank.


WHEREAS the Republican Party has long taken the lead in fighting for the integrity of the electoral process, and

WHEREAS the 2012 Republican Party of Texas platform opposes conflicts of interest in the form of attempting to influence votes by appointed or elected officials on behalf of paying clients, and

WHEREAS the 2012 Republican Party Platform calls upon "every citizen. . . to preserve the integrity of the vote", and

WHEREAS we recognize that the appearance of impropriety is itself a form of impropriety, and such appearances in campaign and electoral practices undermine the confidence of voters in the integrity of our electoral system,

BE IT RESOLVED THAT Precinct ________________ condemns the practice of "pay to play" endorsements, in which supposedly independent individuals, groups, or organizations request, solicit or require any fee, payment, or contribution as a condition of making or publicizing said endorsement;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT Precinct ___________________ opposes the practice of groups, clubs, or organizations requiring candidates for office to pay a sum of money as a condition of being placed on the ballot for any straw poll, whether this is called a fee, contribution, sponsorship, or any other name;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT PRECINCT ____________________ urges all elected or appointed officials of the Harris County Republican Party, Republican Party of Texas, Republican National Committee and any affiliated or associated club or organization to refrain from offering endorsements of any primary candidate when the candidate is a paying client.


WHEREAS the Executive Branch of the federal government has gathered unto itself powers not granted it by the Constitution of the United States, and

WHEREAS the Judicial Branch of the federal government has repeatedly misinterpreted the Constitution of the United States in areas such the definition of interstate commerce, private property rights, abortion, homosexual marriage, the death penalty and myriad other areas, and

WHEREAS the Legislative Branch of the Federal government has exceeded the limits placed on it by the Constitution and legislated in areas outside the realm of the powers delegated to it in Article I, and

WHEREAS it is unlikely that the Legislative Branch of the federal government will submit to the states proposed constitutional amendments that will limit federal power to its proper scope, and
WHEREAS Article V of the Constitution of the United States provides for a convention for proposing amendments to be called at the request of the states,

BE IT RESOLVED THAT Precinct ______________________ supports the calling of a convention of the states for the purpose of drafting proposed amendments to the United States Constitution needed to restore the proper balance between the states and the federal government;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT Precinct _____________________ urges that the amendments proposed by said convention be submitted to state ratification conventions elected by the people for the purpose of ratifying or rejecting said amendments,

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT Precinct _____________________ urges the dropping of the 2012 RPT platform plank opposing an Article V convention.


WHEREAS the people are the ultimate source of government sovereignty and power;, and

WHEREAS from time to time elected officials fail to give proper deference to the desire and demand of the people for passage of certain legislation, and

WHEREAS the conduct of some elected officials becomes, at times, offensive to the people who have elected them,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT Precinct __________________ supports the amending of the Texas constitution to allow for the people to petition for the direct adoption of legislation and constitutional amendments at the ballot box (initiative and referendum);

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT Precinct __________________ supports the amending of the Texas constitution to allow for the recall of any elected official in the state of Texas for misconduct while in office or failure to properly represent their constituents;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT Precinct _____________________ urges the dropping of the 2012 RPT platform plank opposing initiative and referendum.

Feel free to use these in your precinct, and to suggest others in the comment section.
