The proper function of government is to do for the people what cannot be done well by individuals.
- The more government tries to do, the less it does well. We should focus on core government functions, public safety, education, transportation and public health.
- We should have all the government we need, but ONLY the government we need. Consolidate services where appropriate and eliminate duplication, excess and waste.
- Government programs must be results-based with two-year periods of review. If desired results aren’t achieved, either fix or eliminate the program.
Free enterprise and incentivising individual initiative have given this nation and economic system second to none.
- Sound money management should be our goal.
- We should spend no more than we take in. We need to reduce spending and abide by the constitutional spending cap.
- We should borrow only what we can afford to pay back. Bonding should be capped at no more than 10% of annual budget, borrowing should be restricted to public works, earmarks should be eliminated and projects should be funded by competitive grant.
It must be recognized and honored that good government is based on the ability, dignity, freedom and responsibility of the individual.
- There should be equal rights, justice and opportunity for all.
- Americans value and should preserve their feelings of national strength and pride. We should share with people everywhere our desire for peace, freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
We must retain the principles of the past worth retaining while being receptive to new ideas. We should be broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
