      and transmit to posterity the enjoyment of liberty,

relying upon the protection and guidance of Almighty God,

7.   Safeguarding Religious Liberties
8.   Ensuring Equal Treatment For All People
9.   Freedom of Speech & of the Press
10. Protecting Our National Symbols

  The following includes an expansion / explanation of each:
1. Lower Taxes
American's cannot and will not continue to pay higher taxes. Even the current national, state and local taxes must be decreased to safeguard the financial health of our citizens and country.
2. Smaller Government
The growth of government must be stopped and reversed by the privatization or transitioning of government jobs back to the private sector. According to one of America's top ten economist, the only major city in America that continues to show significant growth is Washington D.C. (February, 2010). Government growth must be stopped at all levels, national, state and local or we will never be able to lower taxes.
3. Encourage The Growth of Business
Business growth must be encouraged by all levels of government through the elimination of all unnecessary regulations that slow the growth of businesses, especially small businesses.

               
The Seven Core Social Values
are found in the National Republican Platform
GOP Family Values
1. Sanctity of Human Life

Faithful to the first guarantee of the Declaration of Independence, we assert the inherent dignity and sanctity of all human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.
2. Protecting Traditional Marriage
Because our children’s future is best preserved within the traditional understanding of marriage, we call for a constitutional amendment that fully protects marriage as a union of a man and a woman, so that judges cannot make other arrangements equivalent to it.
3. Support the Right to Keep & Bear Arms
We uphold the right of individual Americans to own and bear firearms, a right which predated the Constitution and was solemnly confirmed by the Second Amendment.
4. Safeguarding Religious Liberties
Our Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion. We affirm every citizen’s right to apply religious values to public policy and the right of
faith-based organizations to participate fully in public programs without renouncing their beliefs, removing religious objects or symbols, or becoming subject to government-imposed hiring practices. Forcing religious groups to abandon their beliefs as applied to their hiring practices is religious discrimination. We support the First Amendment right of freedom of association of the Boy Scouts of America and other service organizations whose values are under assault, and we call upon the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to reverse its policy of blacklisting religious groups which decline to arrange adoptions by same-sex couples. Respectful of our nation’s diversity in faith, we urge reasonable accommodation of religious beliefs in the private workplace.
5. Ensuring Equal Treatment For All People
We consider discrimination based on sex, race, age, religion, creed, disability, or national origin to be immoral, and we will strongly enforce anti-discrimination statutes based exclusively on these seven categories. We ask all to join us in rejecting the forces of hatred and bigotry and in denouncing all who practice or promote racism, anti-Semitism, ethnic prejudice, or religious intolerance.  Precisely because we oppose discrimination, we reject preferences, quotas, and set-asides, whether in education or in corporate boardrooms. The government should not make contracts on this basis, and neither should corporations.
6. Freedom of Speech & of the Press
We support freedom of speech and freedom of the press and oppose attempts to violate or weaken those rights, such as reinstatement of the so-called Fairness Doctrine.
7. Protecting Our National Symbols
The symbol of our unity, to which we all pledge allegiance, is the flag. By whatever legislative method is most feasible, Old Glory should be given legal protection against desecration. We condemn decisions by activist judges to deny children the opportunity to say the Pledge of Allegiance in public school
