The Republican Party of New Mexico is a unified organization dedicated to preserving the integrity and value of government. RPNM’s mission is to help put government back into the hands of the people and to defend our rights that are guaranteed to us by the Constitution. We believe our God-given freedom is inseparable from our responsibility to serve our community, state and nation. We value individual worth, responsibility, and freedom, and seek to protect the American Dream for all.
We support government policies that do not limit what Americans can achieve economically by placing unnecessary and burdensome regulations on American businesses. These policies should promote the private sector over government dependence, reward job creation and work — not welfare.
Capitalism rewards those who contribute value to others’ lives through new inventions, innovation, and excellent service.
The United States has fallen from the top five most economically free countries to number twenty. The lives of America’s people reflect how much economic freedom we have lost.
We support helping reverse those losses and regain our economic freedom by working to elect leaders and promote legislation that will allow the American free-market system to thrive once again.
We support excellence in education through accountability, parental involvement, local control, and school choice. These are the keys that will allow our children to succeed and give them the ability to compete in a complex and changing world. We reject education policies that trap minorities, the disadvantaged or any other child in a failing school. We reject policies that take away the rights of parents to choose the education they believe will be best for their children.
We support and welcome all legal immigrants, and others, who follow the proper legal channels to come here and are tax-paying, law-abiding citizens. We believe that anyone who migrates to our country should respect our laws, our culture, learn English and want to become a proud American. These are reasonable expectations and no different than those that any other country expects from its new citizens.
We support legislation that promotes and strengthens the family and preserves the sanctity of marriage.
We support a Constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
We believe in the protection and sanctity of life for all human beings, including the unborn.
We support preserving and abiding by The Constitution of the United States of America. The Constitution was written by men who put their faith in God and the idea that all people are created equal. That our freedoms come from God and no person or government can infringe upon them. Our Constitutional form of government established has overseen the nation that became the greatest and freest country in the history of the world. The founders created a system of checks and balances with three separate branches of government to protect this nation. We must continue to protect these liberties and freedoms guaranteed to us by The Constitution if we are to continue to endure as the great United States of America.
”The Constitution is the guide which I will never abandon.”George Washington
