What do we stand for?

The Michigan Republican 13th Congressional District values and upholds the Constitution in its entirety. 

“Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” ― Abraham Lincoln

We are the party of individual liberty and freedom for all citizens.

“We have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?”-Reagan’s 1961 inaugural address as Governor of California

Our party values families and the rights of parental involvement with every aspect of children’s lives. Our children are NOT the government’s responsibility to raise. 

“I must study politics and war, that my sons may have the liberty to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, and naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain.”- John Adams, Letter to Abigail Adams, May 12, 1780

We are the party that values a government run by “We the People.”

The first three words in the Constitution are the most powerful: We the People. They declare that the Constitution derives its power, not from a king or a Congress but from the people themselves. This concept of popular sovereignty, power to the people, is the foundation upon which the entire Constitution depends. Justin Pearson, 2022

We embrace limited government oversight into the business sector as well as limited government oversight into the private lives of citizens.

I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.- Ronald Reagan

“Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade…” ― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

We stand behind financial responsibility with limited taxation. 

War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. — James Madison

We value freedom of speech and encourage a “meeting of minds” and discussion.

“Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such thing as Wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty, without Freedom of Speech.”- Benjamin Franklin, Letter from Silence Dogood, printed in The New England Courant, July 9, 1722

As the original Abolitionists, in the spirit of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas, we abhor racism.

“The Constitution is colorblind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens.” ― John Marshall

In agreement with our Founding Fathers, we believe our rights come from God, not man.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. –The Declaration of Independence

We are committed to the general welfare and uplifting of all citizens.

“It must be remembered that the welfare of our people is not recorded on the financial pages of the newspapers. It cannot be measured in stock market prices. the real test is to be found in the ability of the average American to engage in business, to obtain a job, to be a self-supporting and a self-respecting member of his community.” –Alf Landon, July 23, 1936

We desire to unite the citizens to build our future and keep our Republic safe. 

A house divided against itself cannot stand.- Abraham Lincoln

We value objective and complete truth in media. 

“The press, confined to truth, needs no other legal restraint; the public judgment will correct false reasonings and opinions, on a full hearing of all parties; and no other definite line can be drawn between the inestimable liberty of the press and its demoralizing licentiousness.”- Thomas Jefferson
