    That was my big thing. I have called myself "Republican" for so long that I am hard pressed to tell anyone different when they ask me. But recently I have found myself wondering if simply "Conservative" is a better moniker. The recent republicans in office have done little to show their conservative, small govt, low tax side.

    Very frustrating.

    I'm not a Republican but I am deeply conservative. If the Republicans were conservative, they wouldn't be in this situation today.

    I've been telling people for years that I'm a conservative who tends to vote for the republican party.

    I guess I don't qualify as a conservative. I'm all for lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility but really could care less about social issues (same sex marriage, abortion, PAS, etc........).

    Okay, that list below is very general. Of course there is more to it than that. Most things are more complex than simple lists or explanations, but perhaps they shouldn't be. This is a place to start.

    Read that and then ask more. It's a start. :)

    WE BELIEVE:
    THAT the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the Source of our Nation's strength.

    THAT government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual's creative ability can flourish.

    THAT the government activities should be limited to those things which people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well for themselves.

    THAT the most effective government is government closest to the people.

    THAT those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.

    THAT equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity belong to all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.

    THAT the preservation of our Nation and the security of our citizens depend upon the Constitution, the laws, and the courts, and that respect for them is the responsibility of every individual.

    THAT government is accountable for maintaining sound money and a responsible economy. Individual rights, liberties and properties are continually eroded when citizens are oppressed by excessive taxation, inflation, government waste and over-regulation.

    THAT government is responsible for national defense and that only a strong America can remain a free America.

    THAT it is absolutely essential to maintain a strong national defense posture in order that we may at all limes negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness, in our continuing efforts toward world peace and friendship.

    THAT these concepts are the foundation of our national strength and that the REPUBLICAN PARTY, which is committed to their preservation, is the party of today and the PARTY FOR THE FUTURE.






    The Republican creed. That's what it's about. Whether it's actually followed anymore is another story.
