2016 Platform | Adopted May 14, 2016
The Nebraska Republican Party presents its Platform and renews its dedication to the following beliefs:
We believe the strength of our state is in its people. We believe the input and participation of each person is critical to maintaining a government that encourages individual initiative and the free enterprise system and that has given our nation economic prosperity second to none.
We believe that good government should guarantee to its individuals equality before the law regardless of race, creed, age, gender, national origin, or income level and that each person’s ability, dignity, and freedom, as well as responsibilities, must be recognized and honored. We believe that government should promote the health, welfare, and safety of the individual and that government’s proper function is to do only those things which individuals cannot do for themselves.
We believe the foundation of the Republican Party is broad, and, regardless of its position on any particular issue, all Nebraskans are welcomed to join and support Republican philosophy, principles, and candidates. With these principles, we believe that the Nebraska Republican Party is the vehicle for persons who desire a positive and responsive government at the city, county, state, and national levels.
