WTRO Principles - WTRO Compatriots
The Wheatland Township Republican Organization, led by Chairman Kathy Havel (also Vice-Chairman, Will County Republican Central Committee; Deputy Republican Central Committeeman, 14th District), has the best voter turnout percentage and positive Republican candidate results in Will County. On its web page, the WTRO also promotes the following Principles:
I AM A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE…
I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual, and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability, and responsibility must be honored.
I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.
I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.
I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.
I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.
I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.
I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
Note that the 3rd, 4th and 5th reflect West Suburban Patriots’ principles/core values when converted from a “creed” format, to the “rules of good behavior” format being developed for use in the proposed member training program. These rules might read as follows:
Rule 3) Encourage free enterprise and individual initiative; which is in agreement with Patriots’ “Free Markets” principle.
Rule 4) Promote fiscal responsibility, and allow individuals to keep more of what they earn; which is in agreement with Patriots’ “Fiscal Responsibility” principle.
Rule 5) Provide only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations; which is in agreement with Patriots’ “Constitutionally Limited Government” principle.
Based on these agreements, the West Suburban Patriots certainly appreciate the WTRO as compatriots.
