MY SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF GOVERNING

1. Free Enterprise

The Free Enterprise System, not Government, is the most productive supplier of human needs. The poor escape poverty by work—not Government spending. Handouts breed dependence.

2. Justice Under Law 

Rewarding the powerful and well connected at the expense of the ordinary and common or favoring the minority over the majority or the impoverished over the wealthy is equally wrong.

3. Individual Liberty 

Individual liberty is preserved when constitutional limitations are respected and observed. Individual responsibility nurtures a healthy culture of family, community and work.

4. Equal Opportunity

All individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, opportunity and the fruits of their labor. Government’s job is to foster equal opportunity not guarantee outcomes.

5. National Sovereignty 

A Nation is defined by its borders, language and culture. Defending them is the first obligation of Government. Legal immigration benefits the Nation. Illegal immigration destroys a Nation.

6. Taxes and Spending 

Every dollar Government spends is taken from a hardworking taxpayer.  The power to tax is the power to destroy (McCulloch vMaryland). Business taxes are passed on to the consumer as higher prices. Low taxation preserves individual wealth and increases creativity and freedom.

7. Moral Character

Our Nation’s moral character depends on faith in, and freedom to serve, our Creator, Almighty God. A just Government promotes, fosters and protects the moral character and the civic virtue of the Nation. “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” — President George Washington
