Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I
will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United
States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and

Preamble to The Bill of Rights
- The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of
their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to
prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further
declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as
extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will
best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
- Winning the War on
international organizations can serve the cause of peace,
Republicans believe they can never serve as a substitute for, or
exercise a veto over, principled American leadership. The United
Nations was not designed to summon or lead armies in the field and,
as a matter of U.S. sovereignty, American troops must never serve
under United Nations command.
- Under Republican
leadership, the United States will pay a fair, not disproportionate,
share of dues to the United Nations, which must continue to reform
its management and take steps to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse.
All funds that the U.S. contributes for operations, conferences, and
peacekeeping should count against these dues.
- We applaud
President Bush and the Republican Congress for working to end the
unacceptable discrimination against Israel at the United Nations, by
that institution's denying committee assignments to Israel. We
welcome Israel's membership in the Western European and Others Group
at the United Nations headquarters and urge its full acceptance at
other United Nations venues. We support adoption of bipartisan
legislation to withhold the annual headquarters contribution made by
the U.S. Department of State to the International Committee of the
Red Cross if Magen David Adom is not given the opportunity to
participate fully in the activities of the International Red Cross
and Red Crescent Movement.
continue to oppose the ideological campaign against participation by
the Vatican in United Nations conferences and other activities. The
United Nations was created to benefit all peoples and nations, not
to promote a radical agenda of social engineering.
support the leadership of President Bush and Vice President Cheney
in speaking out honestly about violations of the nonnegotiable
demands of human dignity using our voice and vote in international
institutions to advance freedom.
- Summary and Call to
- For 150 years, our
Party has found its purpose in its principles. We confront big
challenges instead of passing them on to future generations. We move
forward with needed reforms to make the government work better for
citizens. We fight important battles and champion freedom because by
expanding liberty, we make our nation more secure.
- This is the choice
the American people face - moving forward or looking back, reforming
government or settling for the status quo, producing results or playing
politics. As Republicans, we know who we are and what we believe. As the
Party of the open door, while steadfast in our commitment to our ideals,
we respect and accept that members of our Party can have deeply held and
sometimes differing views. This diversity is a source of strength, not a
sign of weakness, and so we welcome into our ranks all who may hold
differing positions. We commit to resolve our differences with civility,
trust, and mutual respect, and to affirm the common goals and beliefs
that unite us.
- As the Party of
Lincoln, we stand for freedom.
- We stand for the
freedom of families and individuals to have good schools, good health
care, and affordable housing and services.
- We stand for the
freedom that comes with a good paying job in a growing economy.
- We stand for the
freedom and dignity of every human life, in every stage of life.
- We know that freedom
is not America's gift to the world; freedom is the Almighty's gift to
every man, woman, and child in the world. And we stand for a hopeful
tomorrow that will come from total and complete victory in the War on
- These are values
worthy of a great nation. And they are values worth fighting for. That
is exactly what President George W. Bush continues to do. He is
protecting us from danger by being prepared, strong, and steadfast.
Vigilance is never easy. But it is always essential, now more than ever.
- George W. Bush has
done the hard work and made the hard choices required of an American
President in challenging times. Because of his leadership, we are
strong. Because of his vision, we will be even stronger. That is the
pledge of this platform … and the promise of this convention.
