Wyoming GOP Planks #12, #13 & #14

We believe in Citizen Government by the Constitution.


The citizens of the United States are the ultimate authority. Governments possess powers derived only from the consent of the governed. Our constitutional representative republic remains the best political system, derived from history and knowledge of human nature, to prohibit tyranny, assure equality of opportunity, and protect our individual rights. The Constitution of the United States established a more perfect union of sovereign states, not a group of subordinate subsidiaries. Neither the judiciary nor the executive may effectively change the document via decisions, judicial opinions, or executive actions. The Constitution of the United States may only be altered by the processes of amendment as provided therein. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. Under the Tenth Amendment, powers not enumerated in it are reserved to the States and the People. The most effective, responsible, and responsive government is the government that is closest to the People. Government that governs least, governs best.


Timeless Truths are principles that make good government for the people. These are the truths the Wyoming Republican Party has defined through the work of many Republicans across the state. These Truths, put into action, maintain, protect, and defend our unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, Property and the Pursuit of Happiness.
