Let us modernize, mobilize, and energize the Party. We seek action and results with a Party founded on ideas, issues, and solutions.
If we honor our call and listen, as Republicans, as Americans, in our towns and cities, across this Commonwealth and this great nation, future generations will attribute their prosperity to our enduring spirit.
Join the fight for our future and the prosperity of ourselves and our children.
J. Parker Gochenour
No matter what we try to do to fix our education system, we need good teachers. Many highly qualified and passionate teachers do great things for our students already in the classroom, but teachers unions, bad regulations, and the “first in, first out” policy often protect the few disaffected teachers still in our system. We need a system to find these teachers and offer them ways to improve or replace them. The baseline for a good education is a good teacher.
We uphold the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, a right which antedated the Constitution and was solemnly confirmed by the Second Amendment. We acknowledge, support, and defend the law-abiding citizen’s God-given right of self-defense. This also includes the right to obtain and store ammunition without registration. We support the fundamental right to self-defense wherever a law-abiding citizen has a legal right to be, and we support federal legislation that would expand the exercise of that right by allowing those with state-issued carry permits to carry firearms in any state that issues such permits to its own residents. Gun ownership is responsible citizenship, enabling Americans to defend their homes and communities.
The American healthcare system is broken. That much Republicans and Democrats can agree upon, but instead of fixing the problem, Obamacare hands it over to the government so that it can make it worse. Our doctors tell us that Obamacare does not fix the underlying problems in our system. It is time to try something new by repealing Obamacare and moving forward with a comprehensive market solution that makes sense for doctors, patients, and providers alike.
