Limited Government – As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people, therefore, we stand for Restoring Our Constitution and adhering to the principles therein. We believe in American exceptionalism, our Free Market Capitalist system has produced the strongest nation in the world, and we want to keep it that way.
Fiscal Responsibility – Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable. We believe that there needs to be an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring a balanced budget. Increasing taxes to cover increases in spending is a suicidal path that will destroy productivity. Increasing productivity will increase revenues, higher taxes on anyone makes no sense.
Personal Responsibility – Liberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.
The Rule of Law – Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society.
National Sovereignty – We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.
