Balancing the Budget
America must pass and live by a balanced budget amendment. A balanced budget will provide lower interest rates, more jobs, increased earnings and a higher standard of living for all Americans.
We must reduce income taxes and eliminate the tax on capital gains. Lower taxes allow the individuals to earn more and keep more of what they earn. With lower taxes, Americans have a better shot at realizing the American dream.
Smaller and Smarter Government
The federal government must have a role in our daily lives. The College Republicans support moving government out of Washington and closer to the people. "The power not delegated to the United States...are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." --U.S. Constitution, Amendment X
The welfare state is a corrupt and immoral system. College Republicans support the full phase out of federal welfare programs, including privatizing Social Security, thus truly ending welfare as we know it.
Tough on Crime
Most young Americans either know someone or have themselves been a victim of crime. The only way to curtail crime is to enforce the death penalty swiftly and appoint court justices who understand the rights of victims and do not favor the rights of criminals.
The unborn child is a human life. The unborn child has a Constitutional right to pursue the American Dream and abortion simply denies individuals life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
