I am a Republican, because….

Posted March 15th, 2013 by Iron Mike

Whipping Up AngerI understand History.  I am aware of events as they happen,  and I understand how these events will effect my life, my children, and my grandchildren.

LifeI value life, I cherish babies, and I seek to minimize the practice of abortion.

I value life, I revere my elders, and I oppose euthanasia.

ProtectI value Freedom, and I understand my duty to protect my life, my family, my neighbors, our rights, and our property.

FreedomI value Freedom and will fight to help make all people free, – and to keep them free.  My party fought to free America’s slaves.Free Speech

I understand that Free Speech is a right given to me by my Creator, and it comes as both a Duty and a Responsibility.

ConsequencesI take responsibility for my life, my decisions, and the consequences of my actions.

ObamacareI believe I can make better decisions about my life and my future than any politicians or bureaucrats in Boston or Washington.

RR with HorseI believe government should be small to be efficient.  It should only engage in the tasks defined for it in our ConstitutionGovernment’s first duty is to protect the people, – not run their lives!

I believe we should pay fair taxes for good government.  I will pay at least $1.4 Million in taxes during my lifetime; – I want to pay for honest government – and nothing else.Solyndra Bankrupt

I believe that private enterprise does almost everything better than any government ever has.

StrengthI believe in Peace through Strength, and that America must remain economically, militarily, and morally strong to be a leader in a peaceful world.
Ultimate Price

I know that over 1 million Americans paid the Ultimate Price for my Freedom, and that over 1 million more were wounded.  I will honor their courage and their sacrifice by living as a proud, honorable and law-abiding citizen.

    Great blog entry. I agree wholeheartedly. I think you’re more that simply still good for parts.
    It’s going to be hard, holding onto our beliefs. Keep it up.

    I am a Republican because I believe in a strong military, work ethic, personal responsibility, proper punishment for criminals, no free lunches, and I want the government out of my life.

    I do not care about abortion and religion. I want freedom from those who want to be in my business.

    Our country was built on a solid foundation, and I see liberals as nothing more than termites trying to bring it down from within.
