GOP, Follow the Good Doctor's Prescription To Cure Your AilsSubmitted by C_T_CZ on Wed, 03/20/2013 - 16:20
The GOP Growth and Opportunity Project is 100 pages of worthless tripe.
Thankfully, the GOP can embrace the below principles to ensure victories in 2014 and 2016. No need for fretting and handwringing, Reince. Just follow the Good Doctor's prescription:
The U.S. Constitution is at the heart of what we stand for, and the very least we can demand of our government is fidelity to its own governing document.
Like our Founding Fathers, we believe in a noninterventionist foreign policy. Our military overstretch is undermining our national defense and bankrupting our country. We cannot afford to be the policeman of the world.
We believe the free market is the most just and humane economic system and the greatest engine of prosperity the world has ever known.
We believe with Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, and F.A. Hayek that central banking distorts economic decision-making and misleads entrepreneurs into making unsound investments. We oppose the Federal Reserve System, which has reduced the value of the dollar by over 95 percent since it began in 1913, and we are pushing for a full and complete audit of the Fed to be conducted immediately.
We oppose the dehumanizing assumption that all issues that divide us must be settled at the federal level and forced on every American community, whether by activist judges, a power-hungry executive, or a meddling Congress. We believe in the humane alternative of local self-government, as called for in our Constitution.
We oppose the transfer of American sovereignty to supranational organizations in which the American people possess no elected representatives.
We believe that freedom is an indivisible whole, including not only economic liberty, but civil liberties, privacy rights, and all the personal freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights. We defend the timeless rights cherished for centuries by our civilization against the lawless tyranny that has always threatened them, and we seek a future where the American tradition of liberty is restored and respected more profoundly than ever.
