Dedicated to Promote, Protect and Defend our Republican
Conservative Values & Principles.
The Utah Republican Party Platform is a statement of our principles and values. What does that mean and why
is it important? www.weber-county-conservatives.com/republican-party-platform.html
It’s important because principles are the internal rules we live by to determine what is right and wrong, while values provide the general guidelines for our conduct within those rules.
President Eisenhower said, “If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.”
While it’s true the UTGOP’s foundation as described in its platform identifies causes that are "right and moral", the party’s failure to successfully advocate and fight for these moral causes on the state and national political stage demonstrate the party may indeed be just “a conspiracy to seize power.”
As the UTGOP seeks political power, the personal and political interests of some party members and many elected officials are encumbered by the party’s stated values and principles...the results...personal and political interests trump principles producing more RINO’s in party leadership and elected office. (RINO is a pejorative used to describe politicians deemed insufficiently loyal to the party or misaligned with the party’s ideology...see Mitt Romney).
This is why today, many conservatives with integrity feel the UTGOP may no longer be a place to call home.
Who We Are
Weber County Conservatives (WCC) is an open group of conservative Republicans in Weber County who have served the Republican Party for years and have witnessed the escalating disregard for our governing documents as well as the values and principles stated in our Party Platform. We believe many Weber County registered voters are not affiliating with the Weber County Republican Party because it has lost its way. WCC believes through continuing education and training; we can help citizens rediscover the meaning of our Republican values and principles and vastly improve their quality of life by governing our Party and State from the tenants of our Republican Party Platform.
Build a more conservative Republican Party by educating and training our volunteer State & County Delegates, Legislative District and Precinct Chairs & Vice Chairs, and all State and County Central Committee Representatives on their proper roles and responsibilities in our caucus-convention system. No longer will Delegates have to attend convention or Precinct Chairs conduct a caucus with no idea of their role.
Weber County Conservatives is a private enterprise in the business of promoting, protecting, and defending Republican conservative values and principles. As a volunteer teaching and training organization, our goal is to raise the awareness of grass roots Republicans by educating and training those volunteers elected at their Caucuses on the values and principles in our Party Platform as well as their roles and responsibilities within the Caucus/convention process.
Our belief is that the more comfortable grass roots members of our Party are with their volunteer roles and responsibilities, the more active they will become in the Party. We also believe their activism, as it grows, will deliver a more conservative influence, and help reset the direction of the Party back to its intended purpose as stated in our governing documents and Party Platform.
What We Will Do
Improve the well-being of all citizens of the county, by promoting principles set forth in the county, state, and national Republican Party Platforms and electing candidates willing to do the same. Teach and train our elected volunteers in the Party their roles and responsibilities as County & State delegates, Legislative District Chairs & Vice Chairs, Precinct Chairs & Vice Chairs as well as State and County Central Committee members. We are also willing to teach and train Party leadership on our governing documents and rules.
Additionally, we will teach an introduction to parliamentary procedure, a review of our Party Platform and the history of our Republican legislature’s unconstitutional attempt to destroy our Party by enacting SB-54 (Yet to be tested constitutionally, SB54 interferes with our Party’s established internal procedures…changes the kinds of nominees our Party produces…allows unwanted candidates to obtain our Party’s nomination…causes divisiveness within our Party…and reduces the loyalty of candidates and elected officials to our Party’s policies).
How We Will Do It
We will conduct close to 30 training sessions this year at three Weber County Libraries. The Ogden Valley Branch in Huntsville, the Pleasant Valley Branch in Ogden, and the Southwest Branch in Roy. All rooms will comfortably hold between 80 - 100 attendees and in order to give our attendees a better chance of participating, classes will be repeated at each location. All rooms are reserved from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. Training will be from 6:30pm – 8:30pm with some time for questions and lingering.
Classes are free and the Public is invited.
Obedience is not patriotism. Patriotism is love of your country, not of your government.
