TEHAMA COUNTY REPUBLICANS

REPUBLICAN PRINCIPLES
I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE.......
My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans, how do you know you're a Republican?

If you believe that the government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government, then you are a republican.

If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group, then you are a Republican.

If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does, then you are a Republican.

If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our childern, then you are a Republican.

If you belive this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope for democracy, then you are a Republican.

And, if you believe that we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism, then you are a Republican.

FIRST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT
ABRAHAM LINCOLN


.
I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE..........
I believe that the proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.
I believe that good government is based on the individual and that each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I believe that the free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I believe that sound money management should be our goal.
I believe in equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex, or national origin.
I believe we must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
I believe that Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
Finally, I believe that the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideas into positive and successful principles of government.
