Together We Stand Strong
College Education Issue:
College education is another big problem in the country, Parents are responsible for the education of their children. We as a government should not have to pay for another families child to go to college when it is not our child. We pay for our child to go to college so why should another family not pay for their own child to go to college. We applaud efforts to promote school choice initiatives that give parents more control over their children’s education. By the same token, we defend the option for home schooling and call for vigilant enforcement of laws designed to protect family rights and privacy in education. No federal college loans; just insure private loans.
The Death Penalty Issue:
The Republican Party officially supports the death penalty. The 2012 Republican platform states that courts should have the option of foregoing the death penalty in capital murder cases. Roughly 81 percent of Republicans approve the death penalty, making up a majority of Americans who encourage the practice. Those who encourage the death penalty argue the punishment is fairly acceptable for specific crimes, such as murder or rape. Republicans encourage the death penalty because they want to help victims of vicious crimes. Republicans confirm that the best way to deter crime is to apply existing laws and hand down severe penalties against anyone who commits an offense with a gun.
