I believe the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age, or disability.
I believe that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity.
I believe government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I believe the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
I believe the most effective, responsible, and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I believe Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world.
Finally, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
This is why I’m Republican.
I’ve seen several blogs in which people talk about voting for Obama because he’s “cool.” Cool? That matters to you in a politician? Sheesh.
Well, if you want cool, I’ll give you cool. Hardly anyone on the planet is cooler than Joe Perry of Aerosmith, and he’s voting McCain. He’s a lifelong Republican.
See? Republicans can be cool. We can be badass cool.
