• Free markets and free enterprise, private ownership and personal responsibility
• Equality before the law and a justice system that holds everyone equally accountable, that punishes criminal offenders and that protects the law-abiding
• Foreign policy that advances and supports freedom and democracy around the world
• Responsible, fact-based stewardship of the environment
