It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.


- Theodore Roosevelt -

Extraordinary times make ordinary people extraordinary. As an example, look at the history of the American Revolution, and the citizens who stepped up to become our Founding Fathers.

Our Founders were ordinary farmers, tradesmen, lawyers, ministers, shop owners, and teachers. They were people who became fed up with burdensome taxes and too much government intervention into their lives.

Our Founders believed that government should work for the people and not the other way around. They held firm in their convictions that liberty was pre-ordained by God, not granted by a whim of the government. They encouraged free thinking. They felt people should be free to work hard and prosper.

They were just us, but with one significant difference; they decided to do something about their circumstances. That is the same spirit of the Warren Township Republican Organization – to do something about the overreaching government that strangles our spirit.

We don’t have a Samuel Adams or Patrick Henry among us, but we share their same commitment to liberty. Our aim is to help good candidates that share our values, and elect them so that they can produce positive and meaningful change. We seek solid Republican candidates to support, who are committed to principle. We do everything within our abilities to get them elected.

In order to change the tide in our township, our county, our state, and our nation, we need your help. John Paul Jones, as he was building the newly established United States Navy, said: “The stature of our homeland is no more than a measure of ourselves. So sign on young man and sail with me”.

Come join us, your friendly neighborhood Republicans, who look to the example of the valiant soldiers who volunteered to become Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. With insuppressible spirit, they overcame overwhelming obstacles, and achieved victory. With that spirit, we seek to triumph over the oppression of over-reaching big government, and restore the common values that made America great.

Our new Rough Riders are working folks, families just like you. Dealing with everyday life’s challenges, we make time to make a difference. Ask the question “If not me, then who?”

Make it you. Join us.
