Core Principles

Personal Freedom

We support personal freedom so all Americans can live life the way they want as long as it does not harm others, or infringe on another’s rights.

Economic Freedom

We support economic freedom: a growing economy with reduced tax rates and reduced government spending so we all have a chance to earn more money and businesses can hire more people.

Debt-Free Future

We support a debt-free future because it is only fair and right to pay the debt we have incurred so our children and grandchildren are not stuck with our bills.
