220px-Ronald_Reagan_with_cowboy_hat_12-0071M_editThe Republican Party has a diverse and proud background that is founded on the basic principle of freedom. The principle of freedom blankets all the issues the Republican Party believes in. A free-market economy allows citizens and entrepreneurs the most freedom in following their dreams while reigning in the government to be used only as needed. Of course, freedom is not possible without a strong national defense and represents the important principle described by President Ronald Reagan: peace through strength. The Republican Party believes that the American military is the greatest source of peace in the world. Additionally, a first-rate education powered by school-choice gives our children the most freedom to follow their interests and talents.

The freedom we enjoy is available because of the Constitution, called “the greatest political document ever written” by the Republican National Committee’s party platform in 2012. The constitution guarantees our God-given rights and presumes each American citizen equal before the law. The Republican Party believes those God-given rights begin at conception and that an unborn child has the fundamental right to life.

One of the most important principles of the Republican Party is equality of opportunity. Everyone in America should have the same opportunity to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This principle is in opposition to the idea of equality of outcome. Government is only able to secure equality of opportunity based on the fact that each individual has different interests, goals, work ethics, and values.
