Dubois County Republicans believe:

  • In a principled government, where We the People give government its power;
  • In effective government, which is responsible for doing only what cannot be done well by the individual;
  • In honoring and recognizing the individual with equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all;
  • It is through individual initiative and incentive that our economy grows to sustain lives of meaning and purpose for all citizens; and
  • In Thoughtful Change for continuous improvement of our community, country and world.

"The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but cannot do at all, or cannot so well do, for themselves, in their separate and individual capacities.  In all that the people can individually do as well for themselves, government ought not to interfere."                                                              Abraham Lincoln, July 1, 1854
