What Does The Republican Party Stand For?


Over at the New York Sun, they wrote this about the battles between the 2008 contenders:

“What would be helpful, in addition to the sparring, would be some specifics about what it is “we believe in,” what it is that the Republican Party stands for.”

I’m happy to take a stab at it.

The Republican Party should stand for a strong defense, small government, low taxes, fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, defense of American sovereignty, law and order, colorblindness, and traditional American values including, but not limited to respect for human life, personal responsibility, and love of country.

Granted, there will be some disagreement in certain areas, complaints that it’s not specific enough, and of course, the GOP falls short of all the ideals presented above at times, but if the average Republican pol were 90% successful in sticking to the agenda I just laid out, the country and the Party would be much better off.
