Brookfield Republicans - Town Committee


These principles serve as a guide to Brookfield GOP decision making:


• The proper role of government is to provide critical functions that can not be performed by individuals or private organizations.

• The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done as well by individuals.

• The most effective government is government closest to the people.


• We cannot raise people’s level of self esteem with a government hand-out; only through hard work and self-improvement can ones self-esteem be raised.

• We should protect and maintain America’s natural resources for future generations, while wisely using it to eliminate America’s dependence upon foreign and often unfriendly sources. 

• The welfare state is an abomination.  The attitude of self-entitlement at someone else’s expense cannot be justified.

• Charity comes best from the heart of individuals and cannot be forced or coerced via taxation and regulation.



• The best government is that which governs least.  Those who govern are given the privilege to do so only with the just consent of the governed in a government of laws and not of men.

• Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are essential to our existence.  For this reason, we support equal opportunities not equal results. 



• People have the right to live free, and with rights come responsibilities.

• Public policy should encourage families and empower their efforts to provide for their own health, safety, education, moral fortitude and personal wealth.

• Each American should be free from government interference to choose how to educate, embrace faith and raise a family



• The American way of life embodies capitalism, free enterprise, entrepreneurism driven by inventiveness and creativity.

• Small business is the backbone of the United States economy and must remain unfettered from intrusive government interference.  Government cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

• Government cannot help the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. Government cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
