That the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our nation’s strength.
That government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual’s creative ability can flourish.
That government activity should be limited to those things that people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well for themselves.
That the most effective government is government closest to the people.
That those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
