Faith, Family, Freedom
Faith, family, and freedom are three of our core Republican values. Each of them is under direct attack in America today.
People of faith were the anchor that led to the founding of the United States of America. The importance of that faith to the founders was so profound that it is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Sixty three percent of Americans identify as Christian and another seven percent identify with one of the worlds other religions.
“By design, the new U.S. government was not “religious” in the sense of requiring allegiance to any particular faith. It was, rather, dedicated to a comprehensive protection of the religious exercise of all its citizens. The Framers knew by experience that this protection would allow people of faith to continue to exercise the powerful influence that had created the free nation.” William C. Duncan, Sutherland Institute, May 26, 2021.
The First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Another foundational value of our nation is to provide a safe and strong culture that allows parents to nurture, educate, and rear their children, and to care for aging family members. They have a right to do so in a secure, strong society and to not be threatened by any local, state, or national government. Families are the fundamental structure of our nation.
Freedom is given by God to all people. It is the basis of our nation as established by our Founders. Freedom is the cornerstone of our Declaration of Independence from tyranny and is protected by our Constitution. We cherish our many guaranteed freedoms and work to ensure that they will last forever. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 to defeat slavery throughout our nation. Republicans provided the crucial votes needed to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
It is important that all Americans who fear the loss of these critical freedoms exercise their many rights of self-expression, meeting, voting, supporting candidates, and seeking redress from the many government sponsored actions which limit our rights and change for the worse the character of the United States of America!
