RPVNetwork Mission Statement:
The RPVNetwork is a website that has very specific mission and goals. It is unlike Facebook or Myspace or similar social sites. Although RPVNetwork is built on an open platform and contains a social aspect it has a very purposeful mission.
That mission is to network the Republican Party of Virginia and it's Unit Committees, Congressional District Committees and associated groups, such as Women's and YR"s groups. To let them share information concerning events, campaigns and issues in order to build a stronger more unified party going into the future. Our focus is on the future, and what we can do to insure our success, not in wallowing in the mistakes of the past and pointing fingers or laying blame. It is our mission to present a positive message to reinforce the Republican Creed and our principles, while encouraging participation in the entire electoral process be it online or in the streets of every jurisdiction in the Commonwealth.
We frown heavily on those who would want to use the site to promote personal agendas not in sync with the goals of this site and the party in general. We encourage a positive message and posts from our members and discourage negative or contentious posts. We are NOT trying to stifle disagreements on policy issues, but we want the discussions to be civil.
We want all of our members to feel comfortable in posting ideas and suggestions without fear of retaliatory or inflammatory posts from others. Such negative posts detract from the message and undermine our mission.
We would also want to remind all members to stay on topic when posting to forums, blogs and groups out of courtesy to others. The freedom enjoyed on this site by virtue of it's open platform demands a measure of responsibility from the members. Be respectful at all times, it's what Republicans do.
You will hear from the Administrators (O. P. or Tom), in a message, when we feel you are going astray.
