Clark County Republican Party Platform - 2014 Adopted March 29, 2014 by the Clark County Republican Central Committee PREAMBLE
We the people of the Clark County Republican Party, affirm that this Nation and this State were founded upon the principle that all people are created equal; that the powers of government are derived from the people for the purpose of protecting the people’s God given right to be free and to choose their own pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness; without regard to race, gender, religion, country of origin, or sexual orientation. We invite those who agree with the principles and platforms stated herein to join with our efforts so that this nation will continue to be “The last best hope of earth”; and, so that this nation will return to the principle that we are a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
PLANK #1 – Jobs/Economy
We believe that free market principles promote job growth and prosperity for all; therefore, we encourage policies that support entrepreneurship and private sector job creation, while eliminating unnecessary government regulations and burdensome taxes; and that government should not try to pick winners and losers using tax payer dollars.
PLANK #2 – Public Education
We believe that our public education system needs substantial improvement and therefore, we support local control of education where the money follows the child, giving parents more options in choosing a school that meets the particular needs of the child.
PLANK #3 – Health Care
We believe that your health care is a personal choice that is best managed without government interference; therefore, if you like your doctor you should be able to actually keep your doctor, and if you like your health care plan, you should be able to actually keep your plan.
PLANK #4 – Immigration Reform
We believe that legal immigrants from all nations are pillars of our community and acknowledge their contributions; we welcome people from all cultures and races who support the Constitution of the United States, our Country’s rule of law, improving and enforcing immigration laws, and securing our borders.
PLANK #5 - Taxation
We believe that people are burdened by excessive taxation; therefore, we support efforts to reduce this burden; we oppose a state income tax, we believe that the extension of taxes is a tax increase, we oppose the gross receipts tax (a.k.a the margins tax) in ballot question III any increase in the sales or property tax; regardless whether it originates from a city, county, or the State of Nevada.
PLANK #6 – Fiscal Responsibility
We believe that State and Local governments need to stop burdening our children and grand-children with future obligations and liabilities; therefore we support zero-based balanced budgets that are fully disclosed to the public.
PLANK #7 – Protecting our Rights
We believe that we should oppose legislation that infringes upon 2nd amendment rights and religious liberty.
