Why I am a Republican
I believe the strength of our nation lies with our faith and reliance on God our Creator, the individual, and the traditional family; and that each person's dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
I believe the United States Constitution is the greatest and most inspired document to govern a nation, and the republican form of government it gives us, (U.S. Const. Art. IV §4), is the best guarantor of freedom in history.
I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
I believe human life begins at conception and is protected by the unalienable rights endowed by our Creator along with the fundamental right to life and shall not be infringed upon.
I believe free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation and state opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
I believe government must practice fiscal responsibility, and that taxpayers shall allow the government only the money necessary to provide appropriate functions.
I believe that our Founding Fathers gave us a government that is a servant of the people, not our master. The proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions, which individuals or private organizations cannot perform.
I believe the most effective, responsible, responsive government is government closest to the people, and the sovereignty of the state must be protected. That government is best that governs least.
I believe Idahoans must protect the principles and values that have made us strong.
I believe Idahoans value and should preserve our national and state strength and pride while working to promote peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
I believe the protection of individual rights is upheld when personal responsibility for behavior is exercised.
I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
