Sparks Republican Women's View on the Issues

A Message from NFRW President Jody Rushton

jody-rushton-nfrw-president.jpgToday's national political climate seems to have been stretched to the very limit of civility. It infuriates me that a sitting member of Congress would encourage the banning of members of the Trump administration from public places, that a restaurant would refuse to serve our Press Secretary and her family because of her political affiliation. Have we forgotten all forms of civility? Have we lost all common courtesy toward others, respecting even those from differing political cultures?
Republican women from every corner of this land must stand up and speak with one voice. We are united together, working to achieve our goals because of our love for our country and all its people. We are not the enemy; the enemies are those who want us silenced. Together we must work to pull all Republicans in the same direction,united in our desire to stand firm and return this country to a more productive path.
For the love of God and this great country, we must remember the common goal of NFRW - to elect Republicans. And for the love of this organization, I ask you to bond together even more closely as clubs, as states, and with NFRW. We must tighten the ship, but at the same time let our common voices be heard loud and clear. Working together as a team, with tanks and gratitude for all that has been given to us, we will never be silenced.


The Economy

We believe in the power and opportunity of America’s free-market economy. We believe in the importance of sensible business regulations that promote confidence in our economy among consumers, entrepreneurs and businesses alike. We oppose interventionist policies that put the federal government in control of industry and allow it to pick winners and losers in the marketplace.



We support common-sense reforms that will lower costs, ensure quality health care that Americans deserve, and end lawsuit abuse. We oppose government-run health care, which won’t protect the physician-patient relationship, won’t promote competition, and won’t promote health care quality and choice.



We believe that maintaining a world-class system of primary and secondary education with high standards in which all students can reach their potential is critically important to America’s future. We believe parents should be empowered to send their children to the school of their choice.



We believe in energy independence. We support an “all of the above” approach that encourages the responsible production of nuclear power, clean coal, solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower, as well as drilling for oil and natural gas in an environmentally responsible way. We oppose so-called cap and trade legislation that would impose a national energy tax on families and small business that would kill jobs and raise utility prices.



Republicans believe a judge’s role is to interpret the law, not make law from the bench. Judges in our federal court system, from district courts to the Supreme Court, should demonstrate fidelity to the U.S. Constitution. We trust the judicial system to base rulings on the law, and nothing else.

National Defense


President Ronald Reagan’s approach to America’s national defense, which successfully confronted the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War, is as essential today as it was then: Peace through strength — an enduring peace, based on freedom and the will to defend it. Today, it requires defending America’s homeland, including remaining vigilant in confronting global terrorism, maintaining a robust defense against the threats arising from nuclear proliferation, including a strong ballistic missile defense for America and our allies, and promoting an effective, capable intelligence community. It requires a full commitment to America’s Armed Forces to ensure they are modern, agile and adaptable to the unpredictable range of challenges in the years ahead. And it requires a sustained international effort, which complements our military activities, to develop and maintain alliances and relationships that will lead to greater peace and stability. While the United States participates in various international organizations which can serve the cause of peace and posterity, they must never substitute for principled American leadership nor prevent America from joining other democracies to protect our vital national interests.
