We believe in American exceptionalism

We believe the United States of America is unlike any other nation on earth.

We believe America is exceptional because of our historic role — first as refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see.

We are optimistic.

WE BELIEVE IN THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

We affirm — as did the Declaration of Independence: that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We believe in the Constitution as our founding document.

We believe the Constitution was written not as a flexible document, but as our enduring covenant.

We believe our constitutional system — limited government, separation of powers, federalism, and the rights of the people — must be preserved uncompromised for future generations.

We believe religious, political and economic freedom are indivisible.

WE BELIEVE IN THE PEOPLE

We believe in family.

We believe religious institutions are an asset to our community not a detriment.

Leaders should serve people, not special interests.

Families and communities should be strong and free from government intrusion.

Government should be smaller, smarter and more efficient.

Social programs should help lift people out of poverty.

WE BELIEVE IN THE ENVIRONMENT

We believe that people are the ultimate resource — and that the people, not the government, are the best stewards of our country’s God-given natural resources.

We believe the people have the power to create a clean environment.

WE BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE

Children should never be left in failing schools.

Paychecks should not be wasted on poorly run government programs.

WE BELIEVE IN PEACE

As Americans and as Republicans we wish for peace — so we insist on strength. We will make America safe. We seek friendship with all peoples and all nations, but we recognize and are prepared to deal with evil in the world.

We believe our enemies should fear us and our friends should trust us.

People want and expect an America that is the most powerful and respected country on the face of the earth.

The men and women of our military remain the world’s best.

Veterans should have the best care and opportunities in the world.

Military must be strong and prepared to defend our shores.

WE BELIEVE IN HEALTHCARE AND THE RIGHT TO LIFE

Health care decisions should be made by the people and our doctors.

Culture should respect and protect life not call killing health care.

We believe in the economy

American Corporations have a duty to help to make America great through innovation and by providing jobs, stability and structure.

America should be energy independent.

Entrepreneurs are the backbone of this country and we should give them every opportunity to create greatness.
