The Saginaw Republican Party is built and draws its strength upon the Foundation of our U.S. Constitution, our State Constitution, and our Republican Party Platform. As we are assembled today, let’s begin our time together focused on “Getting Back to the Basics” of American Exceptionalism by reading these 2 Preambles:
PREAMBLE TO THE US CONSTITUTION
“We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
PREAMBLE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM
“We believe in American exceptionalism. We believe the United States of America is unlike any other nation on Earth.
We believe America is exceptional because of our historic role – first as refuge, then as defender and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see.
We affirm – as did the Declaration of Independence, that all are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We believe in the Constitution as our Founding Document. We believe the Constitution was written not as a flexible document but as our enduring covenant.”
