We Are Republican Because…
The strength of our nation lies with the individual and the each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
Americans are entitled to equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
Free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
Good government that practices fiscal responsibility allows individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
The best government is that which governs least, and the proper role of government is to provide for its people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations.
The most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
Americans value the strength and endurance of these core principles while recognizing the need to develop new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world.
It is the Republican Party and its candidates that are best able to translate these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
