FREEDOM, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, AND AMERICA’S FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

For far too long, Congress has been on an unsustainable binge of spending, taxing, and borrowing. Unchecked, the course we are on now will cripple our economy, undermine our prosperity, and lead to fiscal insolvency. By robbing the future of opportunity and freedom, it will destroy the American dream for future generations.

But this fate does not have to be our future.

  • Will America reassert individual freedom—or continue our rapid slide toward European-style socialism and suffocating government control of our lives?
  • Will our children be enslaved by federal debt as Washington politicians tax and spend away our future? Or will we raise our voices and say, “No more”?
  • Will Obamacare be the beginning of a new, less free America—or will we one day look back on its repeal as the turning point that restored freedom to our citizens?

You can help decide the answers. America is not doomed to inevitable decline. At moments of crisis in our history, Americans have risen up to save freedom. And they are rising up today.

All that is required, as Ronald Reagan once said, is “our best effort, and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds; to believe that together, with God’s help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us.”
