What brings us together as Republicans--indeed, what defines our party--is an enduring faith in individual freedom.
We are tough on crime because unless our families are free to walk the streets in safety, no other freedoms really matter. We are tough on taxes because excessive taxation stifles individual initiative and economic enterprise.
On all these things, I can safely say, we agree.
Now, I happen to think that individual freedom should extend to a woman's right to choose. I want the government out of your pocketbook and your bedroom.
