SUPPORTING FAMILY VALUES: STRONG FAMILIES, WHICH ARE THE BACKBONE OF A HAPPY, FREE, AND OPEN SOCIETY, CREATE STRONG COMMUNITIES. PARENTS HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE IN THE LIVES OF CHILDREN. THE LOVE OF A FAMILY IS SACRED.
LOW TAXES: A GOOD STATE IS EFFICIENT. WE OWE IT TO FUTURE GENERATIONS TO BE FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE. LESS BUREAUCRACY AND CUTTING ONEROUS RED-TAPE IS BEST. MONEY IS BEST KEPT IN THE HANDS OF THE ONE WHO EARNED IT.
ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY: WE NEED TO MAKE SURE OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE PROPERLY FUNDED, STAFFED AND TRAINED, SO THEY CAN BEST PROTECT OUR LIVES AND PROPERTY FROM VIOLENCE AND HARM. OUR FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES MUST BE SECURE AND SAFE.
STRENGTHEN EDUCATION: OUR CHILDREN DESERVE THE VERY BEST EDUCATION TO PREPARE THEM FOR THE CHALLENGES AHEAD OF THEM. GOOD SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS WHO CARE GIVE THEM THE BEST CHANCE TO SUCCEED.
INCREASED OPPORTUNITIES: WE NEED TO GROW RESPONSIBLY, ATTRACT AND RETAIN TALENT, HAVE A PRO-BUSINESS ATTITUDE, EMPOWERING CAPITAL AND LABOR FOR THE GOOD OF ALL. I WANT TO SEE HIGHER PAY AND MORE MEANINGFUL JOBS CREATED IN OUR STATE.
INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ARE HALLMARKS OF THE AMERICAN LEGACY, I PLAN TO KEEP IT THAT WAY. WE SHOULD ALL BE ABLE TO WORSHIP GOD AND LIVE TRUE TO OUR CONSCIENCE WITHOUT GOVERNMENT COERCION. WE ARE A FREE PEOPLE.
America is an idea, a land, and a People.
America holds a dream for all those who would seek opportunity and freedom, and to be free from bondage. It is the fantastic idea that we are all equal in the eyes of God, that we have rights that are not to be transgressed by any human power, that we are to be judged impartially. It’s the profound idea that government is there to protect those rights so we can seek happiness and progress unmolested. Our right to life, liberty, and property are essential components making America the best Country on Earth. Our great mission and ideals have spread across the World, liberating countless People’s who have adopted our way.
These ideals were born in the minds of those who, under the oppressive yoke of entrenched powers, sought freedom in a new land where they could plant their roots deep, raise their families, build solid social/civic institutions, worship freely, and live free of tyranny. This land held vast possibility, which was utilized to produce the wealthiest and most powerful nation in human history. Because of historical circumstance and habit, we have not been perfect in carrying them out, but America has been the place where those ideals have been fought and died for so our children could live in a more free, safe, and prosperous world. True and lasting progress takes centuries of dedicated, meticulous, and very hard work to carry out.
Generation to generation that founding People passed the torch of Liberty, teaching their descendants and newcomers about the great promise and hope American principles held for all those who adopted them wholeheartedly. They were formed through long centuries of bitter experience and experimentation, with due regard and understanding of human nature and natural law, to be practiced with wisdom and discipline for the creation of a just Republic wherein all could prosper and find their happiness. America – more than any other – has attempted to live true to its noble beginnings and improve upon them through long centuries of progress towards a brighter future. We also have a duty of passing that torch to the People of this great Country and continuing on the American legacy.
