Alamosa County Republican Party


American exceptionalism is the idea that the United States has a

character and set of ideals that sets it apart from other countries.

It is grounded in the truths written in the Declaration of

Independence the Constitution and the Bill of Rights!

FOUNDING DOCUMENTS

This was adopted by the Second Continental Congress meeting at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, it passed on July 2, 1776 and was signed on July 4, 1776. This announced the unanimous decision of the thirteen colonies to separate from Great Britain and become a sovereign nation.

“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.” Read the rest here.

This is the supreme law of the land that was drafted by James Madison and ratified in 1789. It has been amended twenty-seven times. It lays out how the federal government is divided into three equal branches: the legislature with a bicameral Congress; the executive with a President; and the judicial with the Supreme Court and other courts.

According to the United States Senate: "The Constitution's first three words—We the People—affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens. For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers wisely separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments.”

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Read the rest here.

Patriots Voices Believe:

Promote the Dignity of Every Human Life

  • We must respect the dignity of all life from the unborn, the disabled, and the elderly.

  • We must protect the unborn through a constitutional amendment. As our founders declared, our Creator endowed us with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

  • The right to life is the foundational starting point for freedom and the government is obligated to protect it. We must prohibit federal funding for any form of abortion.


Defend and Strengthen Marriage and Families

  • We believe that marriage and families must be protected as a foundational institution for children and our society.

  • We support pro-family tax policy and worked hard to have the increased Child Tax Credit included in the Tax Reform package passed in December of 2017.

Promote Religious Freedom and Civil Society

  • We must support restoring freedom and limited government and go back to honoring the principles our Founding Fathers gave us in the First Amendment.

  • We must stand with charitable and faith-based efforts to help neighbors and improve communities.

Nominate and Confirm Constitutionalist Judges and Justices

  • We must confirm judges and justices that respect the Constitution and understand their proper role in a system of limited government.

Promote Educational Opportunity and Empower Parents

  • We must unleash the potential of every child by enabling parents to direct the education of their children toward excellence with expanded high-quality educational options at the state, local, and family levels.

  • We must block grant to the states and localities most federal education dollars and restore higher education loans to private sector competition.

Stand with and Strengthen Our Military


  • The number one priority of the federal government under our Constitution is to keep America safe.

  • We must stand with our men and women in uniform who deserve everything necessary to defend freedom and protect us from the threats that America faces.

  • We must stand against defense spending cuts through sequestration or otherwise. We can steward our defense resources better but savings need to go toward protecting our nation from present and future threats.

Stand with Our Veterans

  • America must keep its promise to the people who have faithfully and sacrificially served our country; America’s 22 million veterans and 2 million service members and all of their families.


Stand Up Against the Iranian Regime and Radical Islam

  • We must stand unwaveringly against the Iranian Regime’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and with the people of Iran instead.

  • We need to call out Radical Islam and encourage moderate Muslims to denounce and remove it from their community.

Stand with Those Who Stand with America

  • We must stand with our neighbors and with allies like Israel and those freedom-loving countries throughout the world in Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.

  • Our country should stand for security, human rights, and religious freedom around the world

Stand for Secure Borders to Strengthen America

  • Porous borders mean inadequate national security creating opportunities for terrorists and narco-traffickers.

  • We need to stop illegal immigration by securing our borders and streamlining legal immigration to promote

fairness and economic growth.


Restore America's Fiscal Sanity

  • We must stop the explosion of debt by cutting spending and shrinking the federal government, and submitting to Congress a budget that will balance within 5 years.

  • Congress must pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution which limits federal spending to GDP

  • We work to reform and modernize entitlements so that they are on a sustainable path for seniors and young people. We can do that by capping and block-granting social service programs to the states like what was done in Welfare Reform.

We should freeze pay for non-defense related federal employees for four years, cut the workforce by 10% with no compensatory increase in the contract workforce, and phase out defined benefit plans for newer federal workers.

Pass Real Health Care Reform

  • Congress should follow through on their promise to repeal Obamacare. The should pass real health care that block-grants money and control to the states that would innovate and come up with new ways to meet the needs of their citizens at the lowest cost.

Unleash America's Domestic Energy


  • We support the Keystone Pipeline for jobs and energy security and support President Trump in his desire to unleash America’s domestic energy production without picking winners and losers.

  • Market conditions and states should determine whether they want to explore for oil and natural gas. Commonsense regulations reflecting commonsense conservation providing for clean air and water should protect Americans and American jobs instead of promoting the agenda of environmental extremists.

Promote Pro-Growth Tax Policies

  • We support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December of 2017 that was designed to cut taxes on individuals and businesses, stimulate the economy, and create jobs.

  • We continue to support the manufacturing sector of our economy and support policies that encourage the growth of products being made in the U.S.A.


Reform Job-Killing Regulations & Agencies

  • We must support reforming the Federal Reserve, phasing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and repealing Dodd-Frank which is making it harder for businesses to get access to credit and for Americans to buy houses and refinance.

  • We supported President Trump in ending all Obama-era regulations. We also support cutting EPA resources for job killing regulations and return the government’s focus on commonsense conservation and safe and clean air and water.
