Republican’s Creed

Have the Republicans forgotten what they stand for? Reince Priebus will have his hands full from now until the election in November 2016.
If you recall the first Republican Debates, the group of candidates at that time were asked to pledge to support the eventual nominee. Are they still willing to do so?
Has politics and its games and codes become more important these days than the Creed on which each party was built? Has it converted into new heights of insignificance that once moral men forgot the difference between “the government” and “the people.”
I think the Creed probably meant a great deal at one time. Now I doubt whether most Republicans know there is a Creed, nor have they read it. Perhaps reading it would bring some reality back into their world.
The Republican Creed
I believe that the proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to 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 free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiation and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I believe that sound money policy 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 that persons with disabilities should be afforded equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity as well.
I believe we must retain those principles 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 ideals into positive and successful principles of government. GOP
