We believe that maintaining a world-class system of primary and secondary
education in which all students can reach their potential
is critically important to America’s future. We believe parents should
be empowered to send their children to the school of their choice.
We believe in energy independence. We support an “all of the above” approach that encourages
the responsible production of nuclear power, clean coal, solar, wind, geothermal,
hydropower, as well as drilling for oil and natural gas in an environmentally responsible way.
We oppose the so-called "cap and trade" legislation that would impose a national energy tax on families and small business while simultaneously killing jobs and raising utility prices.
Republicans believe a judge’s role is to interpret the law, not create law from the bench. Judges in our federal court system, from district courts to the Supreme Court, should demonstrate fidelity to the U.S. Constitution. We trust the judicial system to base rulings on the law and nothing else.
