Why Am I A Republican?
I BELIEVE that good government is based on the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility.
I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world.
I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity.
I BELIEVE the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
