Our Beliefs and Principles
Unalienable Rights: We believe that man's rights flow from
the Creator and the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness are unalienable and cannot be legitimately granted or
rescinded by men.
Judeo-Christian Foundation: We believe in the guiding force of
moral law as expressed by the Judeo- Christian ethic and contained in
the Holy Scriptures of these historic faiths.
Self-Government: We believe that the only answer to the current
moral decline in our nation is a return to the beliefs and standards of
morality which our Founding Fathers placed into the Constitution. With
the framers of that document we believe President Adams' statement that
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people: it is
wholly inadequate to the government of any other." We understand that
the concept of self-government begins with governing one's self first,
then family, community, state, and nation.
Education: We believe in the rights of parents to a quality
education for their children. We support parental choice to create
competition among the schools. We must insure that no school or
teachers' union can compromise the education of our children or advance
a particular political agenda at the expense of our future generation's
Taxes: We believe that the federal tax system is abusive to the
American people while discouraging investment and growth. We believe in
growth-oriented tax policies which would gradually eliminate punitive
income taxes and move our tax system toward that originally established
by our Founding Fathers.
Free Enterprise: We believe in the free enterprise system as the
best hope for men and women to fulfill their economic hopes and dreams.
We know that the free market is the most efficient and the least costly
system to deliver the highest quality goods and services at the lowest
price to the consumer. We will support only those who support the free
enterprise system through legislation to reduce or eliminate intrusive
government intervention in the marketplace.
Family: We believe that the traditional American family,
consisting of persons related by blood or adoption through the marriage
of one man and one woman, is the cornerstone of our American society,
and the government is duty bound to protect the integrity of the family
unit through legislation and tax policies.
Sanctity of Life: We believe that the preborn child is a human
being possessing the same unalienable rights as all other people and
entitled to the full protection of the law.
National Defense: We believe in a strong and consistent national
defense. We believe in victory over, and not accommodation with,
tyranny in any form or philosophy.
Right to Keep and Bear Arms: We believe in the unqualified right
of our citizens to keep and bear arms and in the Second Amendment's
guarantee to individuals of that right.
Victims' Rights: We believe in the concept of victims' rights
over the rights of any criminal. We support a system of restitution as
a deterrent to crime and recidivism.
Term Limitation: We believe that public service is a privilege.
We support term limits for public officials, not as an ideal but as a
necessity to dissuade career politicians. It is the people who should
rule, not an elite with little accountability.
National Sovereignty: We believe in nationalism, and that
Government's first concern is the welfare and protection of the
American people and their sovereign right to rule themselves without
deference to any foreign or international body. We do not believe in
trade protectionism but support political leaders who will adopt
policies that create fair and competitive trade.
Decentralized Government: We believe in the supremecy of the
power of individual citizens over the powers they choose to delegate to
the state, a principle enshrined in the Tenth Amendment. We believe
that only small government truly serves the needs of the people and
that those governments closest to the people are most responsive to
their needs. We affirm the principle of Federalism, and its
establishment in the form created by the Founders.
