The Republican Liberty Caucus is a grassroots, nationwide organization affiliated with the Republican Party, and we are committed to the continuation of the principles of our Founding Fathers.
We support individual rights, limited Constitutional government, free enterprise and a strong and wisely deployed national defense.
We believe every human being is endowed with inherent rights to life, liberty and property that are properly secured by law.
We support a strict construction of the Bill of Rights as a defense against tyranny; the expansion of those rights to all voluntary consensual conduct under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments; and the requirements of due process under the Fifth Amendment.
We support the Constitutional restrictions on federal government powers enumerated in Article I, Section 8 as an absolute limit on all federal government functions and programs. Thus, unless specially allowed, the federal government has no authority over the will of the citizens of Alabama as represented by the elected representatives in the Alabama Legislature.
We believe in the sovereignty of the State of Alabama and strongly support a strict construction of the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution.
We oppose the adoption of broad and vague powers under the guise of general welfare or interstate commerce.
We oppose all restrictions on the voluntary and honest exchange of value in a free market.
We favor minimal, equitable, and fair taxation for the essential functions of government.
We oppose all federal legislation that concedes Legislative power to any regulatory agency, executive department, or international body.
We support the US Constitution as the supreme law of the land, the republican form of government it requires, and the right of all citizens to fair and equitable representation.
The goals of the RLC are to educate individuals on the principles of liberty, freedom and limited government and to elect pro-liberty Republican individuals to office.
