Convention of Statesmen


The Values by which I Stand

The Republican Principles are these: Low Taxes - we know that the government must have some taxes. We also know that the 16th Amendment should be repealed so that we are no longer double taxed. Since that is not going to happen, we have to make the federal government understand they do not have to stick their nose into the middle of everything. In so doing, they won't spend as much and they won't have to tax us so much.

This leads us to Smaller Government. The USA was set up as a republic with a smaller federal government and the larger power resting within the states, and the largest power with the American people. This allow for prosperity, growth, reaching and surpassing heretofore unimagined heights, and for an extremely strong nation.

And that leads us to Encouraging Business Growth. We are a pro-business people. We strongly encourage small business, big business, entrepreneurs reaching for and fighting to make dreams come true, fostering the artist, the author, the dancer, the musician...fostering and nurturing the unbelievable growth of the human spirit. If business fails in too will America. A strong middle class keeps balance in America, if the dwindling class does not resurge, we will see the strengthening of an elite class and the remainder of America in the poverty stricken class.

Sanctity of Human Life has been a core principle of the Republican Party for a very long time, but it is a core human value by which the very foundation of this world began; with a man and a woman and their desire to have children. Adam and Eve began the human race, and yet, since the upholding of Roe v. Wade over 54 million infants have been murdered in America's abortion clinics. Consider the progeny that may have been: the doctors, lawyers, architects, scientists, artists, authors, musicians, dancers, teachers, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters that may have been if not for the single selfish act, and the doctor so willing to commit murder.

Protecting Traditional Marriage is founded on the very foundations of nature. In order to procreate, there must be man and there must be woman. This is an irrefutable biological truth. Homosexuality flies in the faces of nature, biology and God, who has declared the acting on it an eternal sin. We stand for the family unit in our party: father, mother and children.

Our constitutional right to Keep and Bear Arms is a fundamental right guaranteed by our Founding Fathers to stay a rogue government, to defend ourselves and our loved ones certainly; but largely to retain the balance of power between the people and the government.

America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and the freedom of religion as one of our very basic rights. It didn't require separation of church and state; but restricted the "state" from ever establishing a national religion, or infringing on the religious rights of any American or the churches residing in America.

And Freedom of Speech, which is sorely under attack these days, is another of the Republican Party's core principles. It is necessary for a free society and a free society is what America has always been; indeed, a beacon of light to the world.

These are the basic values and principles of the Republican Party and they are under attack, more than they ever have been, by the Democrats and liberals in America. They are determined to convince those unwilling to study it out for themselves that we are the enemy. And yet, it is our principles and values which have built this nation into the world superpower that it was, because our people were so strong.

This is what I fight for every day. These "traditional values" which will insure the continuation of the United States of America as the last bastion of freedom and liberty in the world. Hold that flame high, for this is a battle we must not lose.

The likes of Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and others will do their best to convince you that you are wrong. But you are not. We are in the "good will be bad and bad will be good" phase of the world's history. Things are worse now than they were in Sodom and Gomorrah. We must stand up for what is right, it is vital to the salvation of religious freedom, of freedom of speech, of America.
