What We Believe

US Constitution

  • The US Constitution, as written, is the foundation of our laws and our government.

 

Limited Government

  • The least amount of governance necessary to guarantee our rights will result in the greatest freedom for individuals.

 

Freedom of Religion

  • The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not from religion

  • Individuals are free to practice their religion as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others.

 

2nd Amendment

  • US citizens have a constitutionally protected right to own firearms.

  • The vast majority of guns are owned by law-abiding citizens.

 

Federalism

  • The US Constitution outlines the powers of the US government. All other powers are reserved to the states.

  • The founders intended that the states were another check on the power of the federal government. That check has been eroded over the last 50 years.

 

Free Market Capitalism

  • The rule-of-law and free-market capitalism have resulted in the greatest gains in standards of living of any political-economic system in the history of the world.

  • Over regulation of individuals and businesses results in loss of jobs and freedoms.

 

Equality of Opportunity not Outcome

  • Our free-market system means that individuals and organizations are free to succeed, but also to fail.

  • Redistribution of wealth is not fair to those who have worked hard, nor to those who become dependent on others.

 

Responsibility

  • While safety-nets for the truly needy are important, individuals must take responsibility for their own well-being.

  • Parents have both a right and a responsibility to raise their children to be productive citizens.

 

Election Integrity

  • Voter ID laws are one step to insure the integrity of our elections.

 

Education

  • Control of education, including curriculum, belongs at the local level.

 

Legal Immigration

  • Borders must be secured immediately.

  • The United States has a right to determine who is allowed to come into this county.

  • The immigration and visa system in the US should be streamlined.

  • An effective and efficient guest worker program should be developed to allow citizens of other countries to legally work temporarily in the US, and then return home.
