Republicans Believe

Republicans believe in the following principles:

Republicans BELIEVE in the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that
each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

Republicans BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity for all,
regardless of race, creed, sex, age, or disability.

Republicans BELIEVE in free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative which
have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

Republicans BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

Republicans BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only
those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.

Republicans BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is
government closest to the people.

Republicans BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong
while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

Republicans BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and
pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

Finally, Republicans BELIEVE the Republication Party is the best vehicle for translating
these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
