Why are principles important?

Many issues that will be faced in the next four years have yet to surface. It is important to know what principles will guide the development of future solutions not simply solutions of the past.

What are some of Patrick Colbeck’s guiding principles?

  • The government works for the people, not the other way around.



  • The Constitution is a social compact between the people and our government
    that needs to be respected not ignored by our elected officials.


  • Tax increases always should be the LAST option considered NOT the first.



  • Our citizens deserve solutions that prioritize the best interests of ALL of our
    citizens not a select few with access to power brokers.


  • Sustained fiscal prosperity cannot be achieved in the absence of a moral and
    religious society.
