WHAT WE BELIEVE – THE TRUTH

 

Inalienable Rights: We believe that man's "rights" flow from the Creator and the rights of life, liberty, and justice cannot be legitimately granted or rescinded by men.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 schools, the education of our children cannot be compromised by, or advance a particular political agenda at the expense of the education of our future generations. 

 

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 in the direction of use taxes and sales taxes only. 

 

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, defined as any persons related by blood, marriage of a man and a woman and/or 1 adoption, is the cornerstone of our American society, and the government is duty bound to protect the integrity of the family unit through legislation and taxation policies. 

 

Sanctity of Life: We believe that the preborn child is a human being and deserves 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 Bear Arms: We believe in the unqualified right of our citizens to keep and bear arms without the intrusive hand of government. 

 

Victims’ Rights: We believe in the concept of victims’ rights over the rights of any convicted criminal. We support a system of restitution as a deterrent to crime and recidivism. 

 

Support of Israel: We support the right of Israel to exist as a free and sovereign nation, and as our most consistent ally in the Middle East, we believe its continued safety and security are paramount for the peace and stability of the region. 

 

National Sovereignty: We believe in an America first program in which Government’s first concern is the welfare and protection of the American people. 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 power of the individual over the power of the state. We believe that only small government truly serves the needs of the people.
