About Us - St. Tammany Republicans

We support:


Strong Families: Families intent on giving their children the hope of a better tomorrow, the promise of a safe and secure today, and an appreciation and respect of yesterday.


Principled, Innovative Leadership:  Principled leaders with understanding and a clear vision for Louisiana.  Leadership that is unwavering in the face of criticism, steadfast when confronted with adversity, and committed to building a better State.


Limited Government:  A streamlined government that promotes policies to unlock individual potential and unleash economic growth. A government of the people, by the people based on our United States Constitution.


Our Military:  To preserve ideals of our Founding Fathers, a strong military is necessary.  We support our military and their families while actively serving our Country and after they return home from service. Our Clubs raise funds for such worthy programs as Wounded Warriors, Operation We Care (www.operationwecare.com).  While we support many national military organizations, we make a special effort to focus on Louisiana soldiers' needs.


Opportunity For All:  The opportunity to chart one’s own course, start a business, chase a dream, or build a life regardless of gender, race, or religion.


Quality Education:  An educational system that prepares children for tomorrow’s workplace regardless of race, wealth or geographical location. Education is the bedrock of freedom and the gateway to opportunity.


Personal Responsibility:  Individuals taking personal responsibility for their own actions and a criminal justice system based on this idea. With freedom comes responsibility.


Freedom:   Freedom that is God given, affirmed by our Founding Fathers, articulated in the Declaration of Independence, and protected by the United States Constitution. 

National Republican Party - Our Party:


Economy

We believe in the power and opportunity of America’s free-market economy. We believe in the importance of sensible business regulations that promote confidence in our economy among consumers, entrepreneurs and businesses alike. We oppose interventionist policies that put the federal government in control of industry and allow it to pick winners and losers in the marketplace.


National Defense

President Ronald Reagan’s approach to America’s national defense, which successfully confronted the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War, is as essential today as it was then: Peace through strength — an enduring peace, based on freedom and the will to defend it. Today, it requires defending America’s homeland, including remaining vigilant in confronting global terrorism, maintaining a robust defense against the threats arising from nuclear proliferation, including a strong ballistic missile defense for America and our allies, and promoting an effective, capable intelligence community. It requires a full commitment to America’s Armed Forces to ensure they are modern, agile and adaptable to the unpredictable range of challenges in the years ahead. And it requires a sustained international effort, which complements our military activities, to develop and maintain alliances and relationships that will lead to greater peace and stability. While the United States participates in various international organizations which can serve the cause of peace and posterity, they must never substitute for principled American leadership nor prevent America from joining other democracies to protect our vital national interests.


Health Care

We support common-sense reforms that will lower costs, ensure quality health care that Americans deserve, and end lawsuit abuse. We oppose government-run health care, which won’t protect the physician-patient relationship, won’t promote competition, and won’t promote health care quality and choice.


Education

We believe that maintaining a world-class system of primary and secondary education with high standards 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.


Energy

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 so-called cap and trade legislation that would impose a national energy tax on families and small business that would kill jobs and raise utility prices.


Courts

Republicans believe a judge’s role is to interpret the law, not make 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.
