The Guiding Principles of the Republican Party of Virginia
Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored.
No elected official should disregard the constitution to advance their own political goals.
Higher taxes and excessive government spending has been the biggest hindrance to job creation and raising more citizens out of poverty.
We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.
Our national debt has reached nightmare proportions under Barack Obama.
Our national debt currently exceeds the gross domestic product (GDP) of the entire nation.
We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt.
The Affordable Care Act has been a nightmare for many Americans. This over-complicated piece of legislation was sold to us under false pretenses by Washington elites who have called it the "Stupidity of the American Voter Act."
We need to start over with real healthcare reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.
America's veterans have served our nation by bringing peace, protection and hope to those who were in need. They have helped build bridges to other cultures and delivered assistance in disasters.
Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.
Defending our nation from her enemies as well as other threats is a core function of government.
Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders.
If you want to give a person a way out of poverty, the best tool to help lift them out is a good education.
Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.
Under the Obama administration, more people than ever are suffering from long-term unemployment, working for reduced wages, working part-time jobs or have simply given up trying to find a job.
47 million of our fellow Americans, approximately 1/6th of the entire population of our country is receiving food assistance because they cannot make it in the Obama economy.
The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work.
Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty, and hard work.
These bedrock foundations have served our nation well in generations past and can still help guide our nation as we move forward.
Americans have seen their income decline due to higher gasoline prices and electric bills for the past several years and the veto of the Keystone pipeline made sure that thousands of American energy jobs would not be created.
We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.
We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.
