Whether fighting against slavery, for women's suffrage, or for the right to life, Republicans have always stood for the dignity of the individual against the tyranny of the majority or of the government.
Likewise, Republicans believe in economic freedom accomplished through individual initiative, private property, and free enterprise, with very limited government regulation.
Republicans believe that the first institution ordained by God was the family and that it remains the foundation of civilization. Therefore, we support parents� rights and responsibilities in raising and educating their children, and we promote government policies that protect traditional marriage and morals.
Republicans believe America is the greatest country ever conceived and that she deserves our protection from those who would attack her overtly through military action or subversively through illegal immigration.
As Republicans, we look back on a rich heritage left by leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan, men who believed that �America�s best days are ahead.� We look forward to making those words come true through our principled actions today.
If you believe government should 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, join us.
Republicans see a bright future ahead.
