 U.S. Constitution Day

Convention of 1787
September 17, 1787
The Convention of 1787 was the capstone in a chain of events that led to the creation of the U.S. Constitution.

America's first attempt at a national governing document was in 1777 with the Articles of Confederation. It went into effect in 1781, but its deficiencies were quickly apparent. So in 1786, the Anapolis Convention called for a body to assemble, to address its many weaknesses, What is known as the Constitutional Convention then gathered in Philadelphia in 1787.

The debates on the Constitution did not go smoothly at first. In fact, Benjamin Franklin recommended they begin daily prayers to help the process along. Eventually they came together to produce the Constitution -- the most successful governing document in world history. It was signed on September 17, 1787, a day we now celebrate as "Constitution Day."

"Throughout our history, Texans have been strengthened and lifted through prayer, and it is fitting that Texans join together in this time of crisis."

"I proclaimed this Sunday, September 3rd, a Day of Prayer in Texas to provide an opportunity for Texans of all faiths and religious backgrounds to come together and offer prayers for the safety of first responders, public safety officers, and military personnel, and for the healing of individuals, rebuilding of communities, and the restoration of the entire region struck by this [Hurricane Harvey] disaster."


 Celebrating the Passage of Nineteenth Amendment

Amy Clark -- Vice Chair Republican Party of Texas
State Party Vice Chair -- Amy Clark
Next week marks the 97th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which finally granted women the right to vote. But do you know the incredible story behind this auspicious day?

The year was 1920. On a sweltering day in August, a 24-year old representative to the Tennessee state assembly named Harry Burns waited for his name to be called in the roll call vote for the ratification of this constitutional amendment. Weeks of contentious debate preceded this day, with the halls of the chamber packed with onlookers wearing roses . . . red for anti-suffragists and yellow for those in favor of it. Minutes earlier, a vote to table the motion deadlocked at 48-48. It was then that the Speaker of the House called for a vote on ratification. Burns, with a red rose pinned to his lapel, stunned his colleauges and the entire gallery with one simple syllable . . . "Aye."

In an instant, this man -- the youngest legislator in the state of Tennessee -- changed the course of history. Although you will not find it in most accounts of the suffrage movement . . . he was a Republican.

 The Sesquicentennial of the Republican Party of Texas

RPT 150th Sesquicentennial logo
By Wayne Thorburn
This year 2017, Texas Republicans commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of their party, an event which took place at the Harris County Court House on July 4, 1867. The following describes some of the events leading up to this historic meeting and the immediate results from it.

While the Republican Party was formed at Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854, it was not until some thirteen years later that the party would come into existence in Texas. This is not surprising in that this new party was firmly against slavery and in favor of preserving the Union. When the Confederacy fell and the Union was preserved, these Unionists were to temporarily play important roles in the reconstruction of civil government in Texas and the creation of the Republican Party of Texas.


 New Texas GOP Chair Starts Tenure With Big Platform Push

James Dickey -- Chair Republican Party of Texas
By Patrick Svitek -- The Texas Tribune
The Texas Republican Party's platform -- a 26-page document covering the party's officiial positions on everything from tax reform to bathroom regulations - is being touted more boldly by the party's new chairman James Dickey.

Back in March, James Dickey, then the Chairman of the Travis County Republican Party, showed up at the state Capitol to testify in support of House Bill 1911 -- a proposal known as constitutional carry, or the ability to carry firearms without a license. It was a top legislative priority for the state GOP, and Dickey brought a message tailored for the Republicans on the House panel considering it: Don't forget the platform.


 James Dickey Elected as Texas GOP Chairman

By Patrick Svitek -- The Texas Tribune
James Dickey, the Chairman of the Travis County GOP, has been elected Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas by a razor-thin margin.

Dickey narrowly defeated Houston-area businessman Rick Figueroa on Saturday, June 3, 2017, winning the support of 32 members of the State Republican Executive Committee. Figueroa got 31 votes.

"I am humbled and honored by your trust and support," Dickey said after winning, adding that his "only regret" was that the party was not already unified enough to deliver a more decisive result.

A Better Way For Tax Reform
We send too much money to Washington, D.C. and too many jobs overseas. In a Confident America, the IRS and the tax code work for people, not against us.

We need a new tax code. It needs to be fair and simle for everyone. It should be so simple that most Americans can do their taxes on a form as simple as a postcard.

Our tax code should be built for growth. It should be built for growth. It should help make the United States the best place in the world to hire and invest. And if we're going to have a better tax code, we need a better IRS, one that puts the taxpayers first.

This blueprint offers a better way to dramatic reform -- without increasing the deficit. It does so by promoting growth -- of American jobs, wages, and ultimately the entire economy.

A Better Way To Fight Poverty
If the American Dream isn't true for everyone, it isn't true for anyone. All of us should have the chance to make the most of our lives no matter where we start.

Our country is all about striving, but too many of our people are stuck. Over the years, Washington has made many promises, created many programs, and spent many trillions to fight poverty. Yet today in America, if you are raised poor, you are just as likely to stay poor as you were 50 years ago. The key word here is "stay."

Our welfare system is rigged to replace work, not encourage work. Washington measures success by how many programs it creates, not by how many people it helps. The system traps families in a cycle of poverty, shuffling them from program to program instead of helping them break free altogether.

A Better Way To Keep Us Safe And Free
A Confident America keeps its people safe, and keeps the peace in a dangerous world.

Our nation's foreign policy is failing at nearly every turn. From refusing to enforce its red line in Syria, to legitimizing Iran's nuclear enrichment program, to its failed reset with Russia, to cavalierly dismissing the retreat while the most dangerous terrorist organization in history emerged. the Obama administration has experimented with a new foreign policy concept -- leading from behind -- that can now be declared an unambiguous failure.

Our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us. Terrorists and rogue regimes are stepping up to fill the void, leading to a humanitarian catastrophe in Syria that is causing the worst refugee crisis in World War II.

A Better Way To Fix Health Care
In a Confident America, everyone has access to quality, affordable health care.

Obamacare is making health care worse by the day. It drives up premiums and deductible costs for individuals, families, and businesses. It forces people off the plans they like. It fuels waste, fraud, and abuse. And it cannot be fixed. Its knot of regulations, taxes, and mandates cannot be untangled.

Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach.

A Better Way To Grow Our Economy
A Confident America is the best place in the world to live, work, build things, start a business, and raise a family.

Regulations are important. They help protect our health, safety, and well-being, and provide firm rules for us to live by. But taken beyond their initial purpose -- and to an extreme -- regulations can stifle innovation and infringe upon liberty.

The current system is costly and closed to innovation. In 2015, regulations cost us $1.89 trillion in lost productivity and growth. Put another way, if our regulatory system were a country, it would have the world's 9th largest economy, behind India. Indeed, red tape is an empire in its own right.

There are no limits in the amount of regulatory costs Washington can impose each year. Few old regulations are taken off the books. And where we see new sources of innovation -- from energy to the internet itself -- regulators see new chances for control. Even Congress is complicit, having delegated broad authority to unelected bureaucrats. Regulators can regulate first and never have to answer questions later, while you have little recourse or say in the process. All this adds up to a system that favors established interests -- big government, big labor, and big business -- over hardworking Americans and consumers.

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan -- A Better Way 2016
A Better Way To Uphold Our Constitution
In a Confident America, the government upholds the Constitution and works for the people, not the other way around.

Just as the size of government has grown, so has its arrogance. Washington spends money it isn't authorized to spend. It takes power it isn't given. It ignores laws it is required to execute. It doesn't listen, and it certainly doesn't care to learn.

The Founders insisted on a separation of powers to protect our constitutional liberties. But over time, especially in recent decades, the executive branch has collected more power for itself, enabled by a judiciary that defers to the bureaucracy and a Congress that has yielded some its most fundamental duties. James Madison warned that the Constitution is "a mere parchment barrier" unless each branch asserts its powers to keep ultimately comes at the expense of the people, who rightly feel detached from -- distrustful of -- their government.
