GREAT NEWS: Republican Proposed Platform

Below is a sample of a few items that are in the Republican Platform. If Republicans hold to these principles, they will win in November. Blessings, Phil

Protecting Human Life

“The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can ‘be deprived of life, liberty or property’ deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that ‘all’ are ‘endowed by their Creator’ with the unalienable right to life.  Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.  We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection apply to children before birth.  We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood.”

Title IX
We emphatically support the original, authentic meaning of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  It affirmed that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”  That language opened up for girls and women a world of opportunities that had too often been denied to them.  That same provision of law is now being used by bureaucrats – and by the current president of the United States – to impose a social and cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex discrimination to include sexual orientation, or other categories.

The agenda has nothing to do with individual rights; it has everything to do with power.  They are determined to reshape our schools – or entire society – to fit the mold of an ideology alien to American’s history and traditions.  Their edict to the States concerning restrooms, locker rooms and other facilities is at once illegal, dangerous, and ignores privacy issues.  We salute the several States which have filed suit against it.”

Health Care
“Any honest agenda for improving health care must start with a repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010:  Obamacare.  It weighs like the dead hand of the past upon American medicine.”

Marriage
“The American family is the foundation of civil society and the cornerstone is marriage, the union of one man and one woman.  We do not accept the Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage, and we urge its reversal, whether through judicial reconsideration or a constitutional amendment returning control over marriage to the States.”

Economic Growth
“Republicans consider the establishment of a pro-growth tax code a moral imperative.”

“We condemn attempts by activist judges at any level of government to seize the power of the purse from the people’s elected representatives by ordering higher taxes.”

“Republican budgets will prioritize thrift over extravagance and taxpayers first.  We support the following test: Is a particular expenditure within the constitutional scope of the federal government? If not, stop it.”

Safe Neighborhoods
“The next president must restore the public’s trust in law enforcement and civil order, by first adhering to the rule of law himself.  Additionally, the next president must cease sowing the seeds of division and distrust between the police and the people they have sworn to serve and protect.  The Republican Party, a party of law and order, must make clear in words and actions that every human life matters.”

National Defense
“We believe that our nation is most secure when the president and the administration prioritize readiness, recruitment, and retention, rather than using the military to advance social or political agendas.  Military readiness must not be sacrificed on the altar of politically correct social agendas, which this administration has done.”
