I am Republican because I believe that people have the ability to make something of themselves. They do not need to be told that without the government's help, they are nothing. I believe in a strong work ethic, and that the people should be rewarded for their hard work. I believe in the individual. I believe in a strong national defense and the power of America. Although having friends around the world might be amusing, we can only truly trust ourselves. I do, however, know that we can learn from others and sometimes accept that our way might not be the best way for everyone out there.
I respect and appreciate the freedom of this country and never take it for granted or take undue advantage of it. I am Republican because I love the United States of America.
