I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE...

I BELIEVE free enterprise and personal initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity.

I BELIEVE our nation needs to protect the dignity of every individual and guarantee the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I BELIEVE in a limited government that practices fiscal responsibility and works to lower taxes so individuals can keep more of their hard-earned money.

I BELIEVE in a strong national defense to ensure that Americans remain safe, terrorists are defeated, and democracy flourishes throughout the world.

I BELIEVE the Republican Party is the best vehicle for converting these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
