I. JOBS AND THE ECONOMY
Republicans believe in a strong, diversified economy based on the free market, a solid work ethic, safe workspaces, a well-trained and educated work-force, and access to resources. As such, we support laws, regulations, tax structures, and budgets which encourage new investment, responsible resource development, and a business friendly environment.
II. NATURAL RESOURCES
We support and defend active management of, access to, and reasonable incentives for the responsible development and utilization of all of Alaska’s natural resources, as provided for by the Alaska Constitution.
Republicans support access to a quality education, parental choice and control, competition, and accountability, all while championing diverse educational and career opportunities for our youth. We support active promotion of patriotism in our schools, and teaching the historic foundations of our great country. Republicans support teaching American and Alaskan history, cultures and geography.
IV. HEALTH & FAMILY
Republicans support policies that minimize government intervention in the family. We support parents as those with the primary responsibility for their children’s health and welfare. We also support policies which minimize or eliminate government interference with private health decisions of individual Alaskans and their families.
V. JUDICIARY, LAW & CRIME
We believe in a judicial system based on originalism, which means judicial interpretation of the US constitution to follow closely the original intentions of those who drafted it.
VI. NATIONAL DEFENSE AND VETERANS AFFAIRS
Republicans support peace through strength, confident that a strong military helps ensure a free United States. We support all who serve or have served our country and commit to supporting them and their families. We support borders, language and culture as essential components of our national defense.
VII. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
Republicans believe the proper function of government is to protect the inalienable rights of every American and Alaskan as enumerated in the US and Alaska Constitutions. No one right is greater than another. All are equally important and deserving of protection. We oppose federal, state, and local laws that infringe upon any
of these rights. The State of Alaska has sovereignty and management authority over its lands, navigable waters and resources within its boundaries.
We believe in the protection of innocent life. All Alaskans who believe in free markets, lower taxes, a strong military, the right to keep and bear arms, and smaller government, are welcome in the Alaska Republican Party. Come join us in keeping Alaska “the last frontier.”
