Adopted Principles of the Republican Party of Los Alamos County:
As Republicans, we believe in PEOPLE. Extraordinary strength and capability lies in the diverse people of our community, state, and nation. Personal freedom and responsibility, hard work, responsible free enterprise, and strong moral character and compassion are foundations of our society.
Governments have essential roles. But governments at all levels have far outgrown good intentions to threaten those foundations. We must elect – and hold accountable – leaders who will refocus governments on executing their legitimate tasks well instead of enslaving and bankrupting us and our progeny. We welcome all who trust and believe in PEOPLE more than in ever bigger governments.
