We believe that a strong and healthy family unit is the heart of the home—a safe surrounding where family decisions are made, children are raised, and morality is taught. The family is a foundation on which American society has grown and prospered for over 200 years. 

We welcome and value each and every legal immigrant.  America continues to symbolize hope and promise to people from around the world.  We believe new immigrants help make our great nation greater still. 

We believe that every child in California is entitled to a first-class education.  Education is the great leveler in American society. It provides the opportunity for any child to rise based on hard work and achievement. 

We believe that people make better decisions than does government, and the free market embodies this principle.  The government’s role is to ensure that markets are free and that there is genuine competition. 

We support the death penalty as the only just punishment and effective deterrent for “special circumstances” murders. Special circumstances include murdering for financial gain; multiple murders; murder with the use of a bomb; murdering a peace officer, witness, judge, prosecutor, or juror; murder while lying in wait; murder during kidnapping, torture, or sexual assault; and murder to enhance gang activity. We support the death penalty for anyone convicted of carrying out a terrorist attack on the United States.  

The Republican Party is the Party that abolished slavery and stands for the right of all persons to succeed based on merit.  We oppose quotas, special rights, set asides, or guaranteed equality of results. 

We support laws that protect unborn children from partial birth, sex selection, and tax-payer funded abortions, and abortions performed as a form of birth control or on minor girls without their parents’ notification and consent. We believe that the question of abortion is a matter that should be left to the people through their elected representatives, not usurped by the United States Supreme Court.
