Life and Liberty Resolution
Whereas, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is at the heart of our American ideals in this constitutional Republic, and
Whereas, federal court judges threaten this Republic through activist reinterpretation of its Constitution and have legalized the deaths of over forty million unborn Americans;
Therefore, Be it resolved that, it shall be the position of the Republican Party and its elected officials to support the passage of legislation, which would serve to reinforce the 10th amendment to our U.S. Constitution and negate the effect of Roe v Wade by removing the ability of federal courts to interfere with state legislation to protect life.

Border Security and Immigration Resolution
Whereas, a nation without secure borders is no nation at all; it makes no sense to fight terrorists abroad when our own front door is left unlocked, and
Whereas, the current system is incoherent, unenforced, and unfair, and current reform proposals would allow up to 60 million more immigrants into our country; and as long as illegal immigrants think that their illegality will be rewarded, the incentive to enter the U.S. illegally will remain strong.
Whereas, immigrants from all countries should face the same rules and waiting periods, and immigration officials should track visa holders and deport anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law, such as a number of 9/11 terrorists who had expired visas.
Therefore, Be it resolved that, it is the position of the Republican Party and its elected officials, that we must secure our borders now through the following steps:
- First and foremost, physically secure our borders and coastlines.
- Second, fully enforce existing visa rules.
- Third, oppose amnesty in any form.
- Fourth, adopt English as the official language of the United States.

Oath of Office Resolution
Whereas, the people, through the Union of free and independent states of the United States of America, ordained, established and ratified the Federal Constitution as the “supreme law of the land” and
Whereas, the People are expected to enforce that Constitution and hold all public servants accountable to their oath of office to obey said Constitution, in the case of city, county and state public servants, the state constitution as well, and
Whereas, the oath of office implies an understanding of our U.S. Constitution and (except for federally elected positions) each state constitution as well,
Therefore, Be it resolved that, the Republican Party and all of its members will support, defend, enforce and obey the literal meaning and original intent of the U.S. Constitution and, in the case of city, county and state public servants, of their state constitution as well.

Debt and Taxes Resolution
Whereas, conservatives have always supported low taxes and low spending and have endeavored to enforce the principles of limited government as written in the U.S. Constitution,
Whereas, the U.S.A. is nine trillion dollars in debt as a nation and that mounting government debt endangers the financial future of our children and grandchildren, and
Whereas, the Federal Reserve, a private central bank run by unelected officials, fosters runaway debt by increasing the money supply at will — making each dollar in our pockets and bank accounts worth less, and
Whereas, our economy and our very independence as a nation is increasingly in the hands of foreign governments such as China and Saudi Arabia, because their central banks also finance our runaway spending, and
Therefore, Be it resolved that, it is the position of the Republican Party that the United States of America cannot continue to allow private central banks, wasteful agencies, lobbyists, and governments collecting foreign aid, to dictate the size of our ballooning budget, and that spending must once again be prioritized and specified as directed by our U.S. Constitution.

Privacy and Identification (I.D.) Resolution
Whereas, the biggest threat to citizens’ privacy is the government, through federally-created legislation mandating use of the standard identifier (currently the social security number) in the private sector via financial institutions and in the public sector through government agencies not involved with the administration of the Social Security system, and
Whereas, the government should protect medical privacy but under so-called “medical privacy protection” rules, insurance companies and other entities have access to your personal medical information, and
Whereas, the U.S. Department of Defense uses the social security number rather than a service I.D. number as an identifier for Active Duty, Reserve, and retired military members, in violation of the Privacy Act of 1974, and
Whereas, all states are now preparing to issue new driver’s licenses embedded with “standard identifier” data — a defacto national I.D., and
Whereas, the USA Patriot Act as originally proposed, expanded the federal government’s ability to use wiretaps without judicial oversight; allowed nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location, nor subject to any local judicial oversight; made it far easier for the government to monitor private internet usage; authorized “sneak and peek” warrants enabling federal authorities to search a person’s home, office, or personal property without that person’s knowledge; and required libraries and bookstores to turn over records of books read by their patrons,
Therefore, Be it resolved that, it shall be the position of the Republican Party, its members and elected officials must work to dramatically limit the ability of governments to collect and store data regarding citizens’ personal matters, and must stop the move toward a national ID card system.
