The Republican Party has produced a series of talking points for its surrogates to discuss the party’s platform. The messaging guidance is posted below.
The past two days have shown us we are united in our conservative principles, there have been contentious Platform discussions in the past but with more voices than ever before our Party is united behind our vision for a stronger economy and united behind our nominee Mitt Romney.
The all-inclusive platform drafting process also contained contributions from over 30,000 people from around the country through social media including the Party’s own gopplatform2012.com website. And for the first time we included a Constitution plank.
Our Platform has some very stark differences between us and President Obama from creating jobs through the Keystone Pipeline, an all of the above energy plan, keeping taxes low and eliminating regulations for small businesses.
While Obama fails to put forward any solutions for our country, our Platform protects Medicare for seniors while strengthening it for future generations, is dedicated to cutting government spending, lowers the corporate tax rate and audits the Federal Reserve.
Other sections included the GOP’s strong commitment to valuing every human life, recognition of traditional marriage as between one man and one woman, and affirming our Party’s commitment to veterans, a strong national defense, and to defending Israel.
The next step is for the entire GOP Convention to vote on our work next Monday as we come together in Florida and I’m excited for what lies ahead for our Party as we work to elect Mitt Romney and replace Barack Obama in the White House.
