I am a Republican Because:
I Believe... The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be
done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.
I Believe... Good government is based upon the individual and that each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility
must be honored and recognized.
I Believe... The free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an
economic system second to none.
I Believe... Sound money management should be our goal.
I Believe... In equal right, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national
I Believe... We must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an
outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
I Believe... The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles
