As Republicans we believe in American exceptionalism. We believe the United States of America is unlike any other nation on earth, that America is exceptional because of our historic role - first as refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see. We affirm - as did the Declaration of Independence: that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We believe in the Constitution as our founding document. That the Constitution was written not as a flexible document, but as our enduring covenant. We believe our constitutional system - limited government, separation of powers, federalism, and the rights of the people - must be preserved uncompromised for future generations. That political freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. When political freedom and economic freedom are separated — both are in peril; when united, they are invincible. We believe that people are the ultimate resource - and that the people, not the government, are the best stewards of our hard-earned income and our country’s God-given natural resources. As Americans and as Republicans we wish for peace - so we insist on strength. We will make America safe. We seek friendship with all peoples and all nations, but we recognize and are prepared to deal with evil in the world. Based on these principles, the Republican platform is an invitation and roadmap. It invites every American to join us and shows the path to a stronger, safer, and more prosperous America. Excerpts are from the Preamble to the Republican Platform.
