I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE:
I believe that 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 believethat good government is based on the individual and that each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized. I believe that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative have given this nation and an economic system second to none. I believethat sound money management should be our goal. I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin. I believe that Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and an extension of human rights throughout the world. I believe that the Republican party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government. I believewe 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.
