Principles & Positions

Our Statement of Principles & Positions:

The Republican Liberty Caucus supports individual rights, limited government and free enterprise.

o We believe every human being is endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and property that is properly secured by natural law.

o We support a strict construction of the Bill of Rights as a defense against tyranny; the expansion of those rights to all voluntary consensual conduct under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments; and the requirements of equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment.

o We support the Constitutional restrictions on federal government powers enumerated in Article I, Section 8 as an absolute limit on all government functions and programs.

o We support the elimination of all government programs that provide funding or services for abortion on demand.

o We support restrictions on the broad and vague powers under the guise of general welfare or interstate commerce.

o We support the voluntary and honest exchange of value in a free market.

o We support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to the security, health, or property of our citizens, state, or nation.

o We favor minimal, equitable, and fair taxation for the essential functions of government.

o We support the elimination of all legislation that concedes Congressional power to any regulatory agency, executive department, or international body.

o We support only those enumerated powers specified in the US Constitution and Bill of Rights as the binding contract between we the people and the Federal Government.  As outlined in Article 1 of the Constitution only those powers specifically enumerate are granted by we the people to the Legislature, nothing else.  “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
