People who belong to the Republican party & political views are typically:
The Government's power should be be limited
Preserve individuals' rights & freedoms. The most common one, your right to bear arms
The power should always lie in the hands of the people. Through voting, petitions & elected officials. Remember no matter who is 'in charge' they only have power thanks to you & only as long as you say
By supporting big business you create new jobs for the masses. By lowering taxes they increase the business' budget allowing them to give their employees higher wages, hire new employees, or spend more on other things, which would all help the economy.
-on a side note, being republican & being conservative are not the same thing.
"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."
