Senator Cornyn believes that the first duty of government is to protect and defend individual liberty. He believes in a strong national defense and works to ensure that all our men and women in uniform have the tools and resources they need to win America’s wars, deter the enemies of freedom, and respond to any threat.
Senator Cornyn recognizes the power of individual entrepreneurs to create jobs and opportunities for themselves and for others. He believes government must not pick winners and losers in the marketplace, but instead ensure maximum opportunity for everyone to participate in the next chapter of American economic expansion. He champions low taxes, sensible regulation, and open markets for America’s workers, farmers, and ranchers.
Senator Cornyn respects the values that have strengthened families and communities for generations and reduced dependence on government. He honors the sanctity and dignity of human life. He believes judges must uphold the fundamental liberties codified in our Bill of Rights, including freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and the right to keep and bear arms.
