  • Fiscal responsibility with balanced budgets, spending caps, elimination of waste, and a sound money supply
  • Personal responsibility including civic duty with honesty and integrity
  • Unalienable rights endowed by the creator, not government
  • Rule of laws, not men, and equal rights, not equal outcomes
  • Democratic republic, not a democracy, and majority rule/minority rights
  • Free-market economy, private property rights and minimal government regulations (government not choosing winners and losers)
  • Accountability of elected officials and transparency of their policies
  • Peace through strength as a sovereign nation with secure borders
