We believe that the strength of our state and nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom and responsibility must be honored.

We believe the proper function 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.

We believe in equal rights, equal justice, equal opportunity and equal responsibility for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

We believe free enterprise and individual initiative are the best ways to maintain economic opportunity, growth and prosperity.

We believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and limit taxes to levels necessary to carry out constitutionally granted duties of government.

We believe honest government begins with honest elections. We are committed to preserving the integrity of the election process.

We believe that we must retain those principles that have made us strong, yet always be receptive to developing new and innovative ideas to meet future challenges of our changing times.

We believe that Americans value and should preserve their national strength and pride while sharing a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.

We believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
