At all levels (individual/self, family, community, state, and nation) sovereignty is elemental to making decisions regarding well-being, the alternative being subjugation.
The social and financial stability provided by the institutions of marriage and family creates the ideal environment to raise children to become productive citizens and contributors to the “general welfare” of our community, state, and nation.
National sovereignty is the natural form of political organization.
The fundamental economic rule that the individual should not spend more than they have should also apply to government. Saving is not only a virtue, it is a necessity to prevent catastrophic collapse in the face of natural cycles of good times and bad.
Republicansbelieve that fiscal responsibility is a canon of good government.
A frugal government results in a wealthier people (by virtue of resources remaining in the hands of those most able to produce wealth for the greatest number of beneficiaries through free markets).
When individuals prosper, so too does government, through advances in innovation and technology, enhanced tax revenues, which combined with charitable giving helps to convey the benefits of prosperity to those who may be unable to otherwise achieve it.
Printing money does not produce prosperity, only the illusion thereof.
