Character & Conduct as President


1. Changed the tone in the White House, restoring HONOR and DIGNITY to
the
presidency.
2. Has reintroduced the mention of God and faith into public
discourse.
3. Handled himself with enormous courage, dignity, grace,
determination, and
leadership in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 hijackings and
anthrax
attacks. He almost single-handedly held this country together during
those
searing days:


Just three days after the attacks, in his address at the National
Cathedral,
the President reassured the nation when he said: "War has been waged
against
us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but
fierce
when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms
of
others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing."


On Friday, September 14, 2001, President Bush visited Ground Zero.
Standing
on a crushed and burned fire engine atop the smoldering pile at Ground
Zero,
he put his arm around a retired firefighter who had volunteered to
help, and
began speaking to the crowd. Rescue workers shouted that they could
not hear
him. Someone handed him a small American flag and bullhorn. The
President
spontaneously shouted: "I can hear you. The rest of the world hears
you. And
the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."
The
crowd roared with cheers and chants of "USA! USA! USA!" Then he raised
that
American flag and rallied a nation.


Education & Employment Training


1. Signed the No Child Left Behind Act, delivering the most dramatic
education reforms in a generation (challenging the soft bigotry of
low
expectations). The very liberal California Teachers union is
currently
running radio ads against the accountability provisions of this Act.
2. Announced "Jobs for the 21st Century," a comprehensive plan to
better
prepare workers for jobs in the new millennium by strengthening
post-secondary education and job training, and by improving high
school
education.
3. Is working to provide vouchers to low-income students in
persistently
failing schools to help with costs of attending private schools.
(Blocked in
the Senate.)
4. Requires annual reading and math tests in grades three through
eight.
5. Requires states to participate in the National Assessment of
Education
Progress, or an equivalent program, to establish a national benchmark
for
academic performance.
6. Requires school-by-school accountability report cards.
7. Established a $2.4 billion fund to help states implement teacher
accountability systems.
8. Increased funding for the Troops-to-Teachers program, which
recruits
former military personnel to become teachers.


Environment & Energy


1. Killed the Kyoto Global Warming Treaty.
2. Submitted a comprehensive Energy Plan (awaits Congressional
action). The
plan works to develop cleaner technology, produce more natural gas
here at
home, make America less dependent on foreign sources of energy,
improve
national grid, etc.
3. Established a $10 million grant program to promote private
conservation
initiatives.
4. Significantly eased field-testing controls of genetically
engineered
crops.
5. Changed parts of the Forestry Management Act to allow necessary
cleanup
of the national forests in order to reduce fire danger.
6. Part of national forests cleanup: Restricted judicial challenges
(based
on the Endangered Species Act and other challenges), and removed the
need
for an Environmental Impact Statement before removing fuels/logging
to
reduce fire danger.
7. Killed Clinton's CO2 rules that were choking off all of the
electricity
surplus to California.
8. Provided matching grants for state programs that help private
landowners
protect rare species.


Defense & Foreign Policy


1. Successfully executed two wars in the aftermath of 9/11/01:
Afghanistan
and Iraq. 50 million people who had lived under tyrannical regimes now
live
in freedom.
2. Saddam Hussein is now in prison. His two murderous sons are dead.
All but
a handful of the regime's senior members were killed or captured.
3. Leader by leader and member by member, al Maida is being hunted
down in
dozens of countries around the world. Of the senior al Qaeda leaders,
operational managers, and key facilitators the U.S. Government has
been
tracking, nearly two-thirds have been taken into custody or killed.
The
detentions or deaths of senior al Qaeda leaders, including Khalid
Shaykh
Muhammad, the mastermind of 9/11, and Muhammad Atef, Osama bin
Laden's
second-in-command until his death in late 2001, have been important in
the
War on Terror.
4. Disarmed Libya of its chemical, nuclear and biological WMD's
without
bribes or bloodshed.
5. Continues to execute the War On Terror, getting worldwide
cooperation to
track funds/terrorists. Has cut off much of the terrorists' funding,
and
captured or killed many key leaders of the al Qaeda network.
6. Initiated a comprehensive review of our military, which was
completed
just prior to 9/11/01, and which accurately reported that
ASYMMETRICAL
WARFARE capabilities were critical in the 21st Century.
7. Killed the old US/Soviet Union ABM Treaty that was preventing the
U.S.
from deploying our ABM defenses.
8. Has been one of the strongest, if not THE strongest friend Israel
has
ever hand in the U.S. presidency.
9. Part of the coalition for an Israeli/Palestinian "Roadmap to
Peace,"
along with Great Britain, Russia and the EU.
10. Pushed through THREE raises for our military. Increased military
pay by
more than $1 billion a year.
11. Signed the LARGEST nuclear arms reduction in world history with
Russia.
12. Started withdrawing our troops from Bosnia, and has announced
withdrawal
of our troops from Germany and the Korean DMZ. 13. Prohibited putting
U.S.
troops under U.N. command.
14. Paid back UN dues only in return for reforms and reduction of U.S.
share
of the costs.
15. Earmarked at least 20 percent of the Defense procurement budget
for
next-generation weaponry.
16. Increased defense research and development spending by at least
$20
billion from fiscal 2002 to 2006.
17. Ordered a comprehensive review of military weapons and strategy.
18. Ordered a review of overseas deployments.
19. Ordered renovation of military housing. The military has already
upgraded about 10 percent of its inventory and expects to modernize
76,000
additional homes this year.
20. Is working to tighten restrictions on military-technology
exports.
21. Brought back our EP-3 intel plane and crew from China without any
bribes
or bloodshed.
22. Supported Israel in its victory over Hezbollah


Globalization & Internationalism


1. Challenged the United Nations to live up to their responsibilities
and
not become another League of Nations (in other words, showed the UN to
be
completely irrelevant).
2. Killed U.S. involvement in the International Criminal Court.
3. Told the United Nations we weren't interested in their plans for
gun
control (i.e., the International Ban on Small Arms Trafficking
Treaty).
4. The only President since the founding of the UN to essentially tell
that
organization it is irrelevant. He said: "The conduct of the Iraqi
regime is
a threat to the authority of the United Nations, and a threat to
peace. Iraq
has answered a decade of UN demands with a decade of defiance. All the
world
now faces a test, and the United Nations a difficult and defining
moment.
Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or cast
aside
without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its
founding, or will it be irrelevant?" We all know the outcome and the
answer.
5. Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a
permission
slip to defend the security of our country."


Government Reform


1. Improved government efficiency by putting hundreds of thousands of
jobs
put up for bid. This weakens public-sector unions and cuts undeserved
pay
raises.
2. Initiated review of all federal agencies with the goal of
eliminating
federal jobs (completed September 2003) in an effort to reduce the
size of
the federal government while increasing private sector jobs.
3. Led the most extensive reorganization the Federal bureaucracy in
over 50
years: After 9/11, condensed 20+ overlapping agencies and their
intelligence
sectors into one agency, the Department of Homeland Security.
4. Ordered each agency to draft a five-year plan to restructure
itself, with
fewer managers.
5. Converted federal service contracts to performance-based contracts
wherever possible so that the contractor has measurable performance
goals.


Health


1. Strengthen the National Health Service Corps to put more physicians
in
the neediest areas, and make its scholarship funds tax-free.
2. Double the research budget of the National Institutes of Health.
3. Signed Medicare Reform, which includes:


A 10-year privatization option.


Prescription drug benefits: Prior to this reform, Medicare paid for
extended
hospital stays for ulcer surgery, for example, at a cost of about
$28,000
per patient. Yet Medicare would not pay for the drugs that eliminate
the
cause of most ulcers, drugs that cost about $500 a year. Now, drug
coverage
under Medicare will allow seniors to replace more expensive surgeries
and
hospitalizations with less expensive prescription medicine.


More health care choices: As President Bush stated, ".when seniors
have the
ability to make choices, health care plans within Medicare will have
to
compete for their business by offering higher quality service [at
lower
cost]. For the seniors of America, more choices and more control will
mean
better health care. These are the kinds of health care options we give
to
the members of Congress and federal employees. What's good for members
of
Congress is also good for seniors.


New Health Savings Accounts: Effective January 1, 2004, Americans can
set
aside up to $4,500 every year, tax free, to save for medical
expenses.
Depending on your tax bracket, that means you'll save between 10 to
35
percent on any costs covered by money in your account. Every year, the
money
not spent would stay in the account and gain interest tax-free, just
like an
IRA. These accounts will be good for small business owners, and
employees.
More businesses can focus on covering workers for major medical
problems,
such as hospitalization for an injury or illness. At the same time,
employees and their families will use these accounts to cover doctors
visits, or lab tests, or other smaller costs. Some employers will
contribute
to employee health accounts. This will help more American families get
the
health care they need at the price they can afford.


Homeland Security, Border Enforcement & Immigration


1. *See Government Reform above. Under President Bush's leadership,
America
has made an unprecedented commitment to homeland security.
2. Has CONSTRUCTION in process on the first 10 ABM silos in Alaska so
that
America will have a defense against North Korean nukes. Has ordered
national
and theater ballistic missile defenses to be deployed by 2004.
3. Announced a 9.7% increase in government-wide homeland security
funding in
his FY 2005 budget, nearly tripling the FY 2001 levels (excluding the
Department of Defense and Project BioShield).
4. Before DHS was created, there were inspectors from three different
agencies of the Federal Government and Border Patrol officers
protecting our
borders. Through DHS, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now
consolidates all border activities into a single agency to create "one
face
at the border." This not only better secures the borders of the
United
States, but it also eliminates many of the inefficiencies that
occurred
under the old system. With over 18,000 CBP inspectors and 11,000
Border
Patrol agents, CBP has 29,000 uniformed officers on our borders.
5. The Border Patrol is continuing installation of monitoring devices
along
the borders to detect illegal activity.
6. Launched Operation Tarmac to investigate businesses and workers in
the
secure areas of domestic airports and ensure immigration law
compliance.
Since 9/11, DHS has audited 3,640 businesses, examined 259,037
employee
records, arrested 1,030 unauthorized workers, and participated in the
criminal indictment of 774 individuals.
7. Since September 11, 2001, the Coast Guard has conducted more than
124,000
port security patrols, 13,000 air patrols, boarded more than 92,000
vessels,
interdicted over 14,000 individuals attempting to enter the United
States
illegally, and created and maintained more than 90 Maritime Security
Zones.
8. Announced the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System
(SEVIS), an
internet-based system that is improving America's ability to track
and
monitor foreign students and exchange visitors. Over 870,000 students
are
registered in SEVIS. Of 285 completed field investigations, 71 aliens
were
arrested.
9. This week, the US-VISIT program began to digitally collect
biometric
identifiers to record the entry and exit of aliens who travel into the
U.S
on a visa. Together with the standard information, this new program
will
confirm compliance with visa and immigration policies.
10. Eliminated INS bureaucratic redundancies and lack of
accountability.
11. Split the Immigration and Naturalization Service into two
agencies: one
to protect the border and interior, the other to deal with
naturalization.
12. Signed the workplace verification bill to prevent hiring of
illegal
aliens.
13. Established a six-month deadline for processing immigration
applications.
14. Information regarding nearly 100% of all containerized cargo is
carefully screened by DHS before it arrives in the United States.
Higher
risk shipments are physically inspected for terrorist weapons and
contraband
prior to being released from the port of entry. Advanced technologies
are
being deployed to identify warning signs of chemical, biological, or
radiological attacks. Since September 11, 2001, hundreds of thousands
of
first responders across America have been trained to recognize and
respond
to the effects of a WMD attack.


Judiciary & Tort Reform


1. Is urging federal liability reform to eliminate frivolous
lawsuits.
2. Killed the liberal ABA's unconstitutional role in vetting federal
judges.
The Senate is supposed to advise and consent, not the ABA.
3. Is nominating strong, conservative judges to the judiciary.
4. Supports class action reform bill which limits lawyer fees so that
more
settlement money goes to victims.


Politics


1. His leadership resulted in Republican gains in the House and
Senate,
solidifying Republican control of both houses of Congress and the
presidency.
2. Signed an EO enforcing the Supreme Court's Beck decision regarding
union
dues being used for political campaigns against individual's wishes.


Second Amendment


1. Ordered Attorney General Ashcroft to formally notify the Supreme
Court
that the OFFICIAL U.S. government position on the 2nd Amendment is
that it
supports INDIVIDUAL rights to own firearms, and is NOT a Leftist-
imagined
"collective" right.
2. Signed TWO bills into law that arm our pilots with handguns in the
cockpit.
3. Currently pushing for full immunity from lawsuits for our national
gun
manufacturers.
4. *See Globalization & Internationalism.


Traditional Values, Compassion & Volunteerism


1. Endorses and promotes "The Responsibility Era." President Bush
often
speaks of the necessity of personal responsibility and civic
volunteerism.
He said, "In a compassionate society, people respect one another and
take
responsibility for the decisions they make in life. My hope is to
change the
culture from one that has said, if it feels good, do it; if you've got
a
problem, blame somebody else - to one in which every single American
understands that he or she is responsible for the decisions that you
make;
you're responsible for loving your children with all your heart and
all your
soul; you're responsible for being involved with the quality of the
education of your children; you're responsible for making sure the
community
in which you live is safe; you're responsible for loving your
neighbor, just
like you would like to be loved yourself."
2. Started the USA Freedom Corps, the most comprehensive clearinghouse
of
volunteer opportunities ever offered. For the first time in history,
Americans can enter geographic information about where they want to
get
involved, such as state or zip code, as well as areas of interest
ranging
from education to the environment, and they can access volunteer
opportunities offered by more than 50,000 organizations across the
country
and around the world.
3. Established the The White House Office and the Centers for the
Faith-Based and Community Initiative - located in seven Federal
agencies.
The faith-based initiative supports the essential work of these
important
organizations. The goal is to make sure that grassroots leaders can
compete
on an equal footing for federal dollars, receive greater private
support,
and face fewer bureaucratic barriers. Work focuses on at-risk youth,
ex-offenders, the homeless and hungry, substance abusers, those with
HIV/AIDS, and welfare-to-work families.
4. The White House released a guidebook fully describing the
Administration's belief that faith-based groups have a
Constitutionally-protected right to maintain their religious identity
through hiring - even when Federal funds are involved.
5. Issued an EO implementing the Supreme Court's Olmstead ruling,
which
requires moving disabled people from institutions to community-based
facilities when possible.
6.Increased funding for low-interest loan programs to help people
with
disabilities purchase devices to assist them.
7. Revised the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 8
rent
subsidies to disabled people, permitting them to use up to a year's
worth of
vouchers to finance down payments on homes. HUD has started pilot
programs
in 11 states.
8. Committed US funds to purchase medicine for millions of men, women
and
children now suffering with AIDS in Africa.
9. Heeding the words of our own Declaration of Independence, the
president
laid out the non-negotiable demands of human dignity for all people
everywhere. On January 29, 2002, he said, "No nation owns these
aspirations,
and no nation is exempt from them. We have no intention of imposing
our
culture. But America will always stand firm for the non-negotiable
demands
of human dignity." As stated by the President, they are a virtual
manifesto
of conservative principles:
Equal Justice
Freedom of Speech
Limited Government Power
Private Property Rights
Religious Tolerance
Respect for Women
Rule of Law

along with Great Britain, Russia and the EU.
10. Pushed through THREE raises for our military. Increased military
pay by
more than $1 billion a year.
11. Signed the LARGEST nuclear arms reduction in world history with
Russia.
12. Started withdrawing our troops from Bosnia, and has announced
withdrawal
of our troops from Germany and the Korean DMZ. 13. Prohibited putting
U.S.
troops under U.N. command.
14. Paid back UN dues only in return for reforms and reduction of U.S.
share
of the costs.
15. Earmarked at least 20 percent of the Defense procurement budget
for
next-generation weaponry.
16. Increased defense research and development spending by at least
$20
billion from fiscal 2002 to 2006.
17. Ordered a comprehensive review of military weapons and strategy.
18. Ordered a review of overseas deployments.
19. Ordered renovation of military housing. The military has already
upgraded about 10 percent of its inventory and expects to modernize
76,000
additional homes this year.
20. Is working to tighten restrictions on military-technology
exports.
21. Brought back our EP-3 intel plane and crew from China without any
bribes
or bloodshed.
22. Supported Israel in its victory over Hezbollah
Globalization & Internationalism
1. Challenged the United Nations to live up to their responsibilities
and
not become another League of Nations (in other words, showed the UN to
be
completely irrelevant).
2. Killed U.S. involvement in the International Criminal Court.
3. Told the United Nations we weren't interested in their plans for
gun
control (i.e., the International Ban on Small Arms Trafficking
Treaty).
4. The only President since the founding of the UN to essentially tell
that
organization it is irrelevant. He said: "The conduct of the Iraqi
regime is
a threat to the authority of the United Nations, and a threat to
peace. Iraq
has answered a decade of UN demands with a decade of defiance. All the
world
now faces a test, and the United Nations a difficult and defining
moment.
Are Security Council resolutions to be honored and enforced, or cast
aside
without consequence? Will the United Nations serve the purpose of its
founding, or will it be irrelevant?" We all know the outcome and the
answer.
5. Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a
permission
slip to defend the security of our country."
Government Reform
1. Improved government efficiency by putting hundreds of thousands of
jobs
put up for bid. This weakens public-sector unions and cuts undeserved
pay
raises.
2. Initiated review of all federal agencies with the goal of
eliminating
federal jobs (completed September 2003) in an effort to reduce the
size of
the federal government while increasing private sector jobs.
3. Led the most extensive reorganization the Federal bureaucracy in
over 50
years: After 9/11, condensed 20+ overlapping agencies and their
intelligence
sectors into one agency, the Department of Homeland Security.
4. Ordered each agency to draft a five-year plan to restructure
itself, with
fewer managers.
5. Converted federal service contracts to performance-based contracts
wherever possible so that the contractor has measurable performance
goals.
Health
1. Strengthen the National Health Service Corps to put more physicians
in
the neediest areas, and make its scholarship funds tax-free.
2. Double the research budget of the National Institutes of Health.
A 10-year privatization option.
Prescription drug benefits: Prior to this reform, Medicare paid for
extended
hospital stays for ulcer surgery, for example, at a cost of about
$28,000
per patient. Yet Medicare would not pay for the drugs that eliminate
the
cause of most ulcers, drugs that cost about $500 a year. Now, drug
coverage
under Medicare will allow seniors to replace more expensive surgeries
and
hospitalizations with less expensive prescription medicine.
More health care choices: As President Bush stated, ".when seniors
have the
ability to make choices, health care plans within Medicare will have
to
compete for their business by offering higher quality service [at
lower
cost]. For the seniors of America, more choices and more control will
mean
better health care. These are the kinds of health care options we give
to
the members of Congress and federal employees. What's good for members
of
Congress is also good for seniors.
New Health Savings Accounts: Effective January 1, 2004, Americans can
set
aside up to $4,500 every year, tax free, to save for medical
expenses.
Depending on your tax bracket, that means you'll save between 10 to
35
percent on any costs covered by money in your account. Every year, the
money
not spent would stay in the account and gain interest tax-free, just
like an
IRA. These accounts will be good for small business owners, and
employees.
More businesses can focus on covering workers for major medical
problems,
such as hospitalization for an injury or illness. At the same time,
employees and their families will use these accounts to cover doctors
visits, or lab tests, or other smaller costs. Some employers will
contribute
to employee health accounts. This will help more American families get
the
health care they need at the price they can afford.
Homeland Security, Border Enforcement & Immigration
1. *See Government Reform above. Under President Bush's leadership,
America
has made an unprecedented commitment to homeland security.
2. Has CONSTRUCTION in process on the first 10 ABM silos in Alaska so
that
America will have a defense against North Korean nukes. Has ordered
national
and theater ballistic missile defenses to be deployed by 2004.
3. Announced a 9.7% increase in government-wide homeland security
funding in
his FY 2005 budget, nearly tripling the FY 2001 levels (excluding the
Department of Defense and Project BioShield).
4. Before DHS was created, there were inspectors from three different
agencies of the Federal Government and Border Patrol officers
protecting our
borders. Through DHS, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now
consolidates all border activities into a single agency to create "one
face
at the border." This not only better secures the borders of the
United
States, but it also eliminates many of the inefficiencies that
occurred
under the old system. With over 18,000 CBP inspectors and 11,000
Border
Patrol agents, CBP has 29,000 uniformed officers on our borders.
5. The Border Patrol is continuing installation of monitoring devices
along
the borders to detect illegal activity.
6. Launched Operation Tarmac to investigate businesses and workers in
the
secure areas of domestic airports and ensure immigration law
compliance.
Since 9/11, DHS has audited 3,640 businesses, examined 259,037
employee
records, arrested 1,030 unauthorized workers, and participated in the
criminal indictment of 774 individuals.
7. Since September 11, 2001, the Coast Guard has conducted more than
124,000
port security patrols, 13,000 air patrols, boarded more than 92,000
vessels,
interdicted over 14,000 individuals attempting to enter the United
States
illegally, and created and maintained more than 90 Maritime Security
Zones.
8. Announced the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System
(SEVIS), an
internet-based system that is improving America's ability to track
and
monitor foreign students and exchange visitors. Over 870,000 students
are
registered in SEVIS. Of 285 completed field investigations, 71 aliens
were
arrested.
9. This week, the US-VISIT program began to digitally collect
biometric
identifiers to record the entry and exit of aliens who travel into the
U.S
on a visa. Together with the standard information, this new program
will
confirm compliance with visa and immigration policies.
10. Eliminated INS bureaucratic redundancies and lack of
accountability.
11. Split the Immigration and Naturalization Service into two
agencies: one
to protect the border and interior, the other to deal with
naturalization.
12. Signed the workplace verification bill to prevent hiring of
illegal
aliens.
13. Established a six-month deadline for processing immigration
applications.
14. Information regarding nearly 100% of all containerized cargo is
carefully screened by DHS before it arrives in the United States.
Higher
risk shipments are physically inspected for terrorist weapons and
contraband
prior to being released from the port of entry. Advanced technologies
are
being deployed to identify warning signs of chemical, biological, or
radiological attacks. Since September 11, 2001, hundreds of thousands
of
first responders across America have been trained to recognize and
respond
to the effects of a WMD attack.
Judiciary & Tort Reform
1. Is urging federal liability reform to eliminate frivolous
lawsuits.
2. Killed the liberal ABA's unconstitutional role in vetting federal
judges.
The Senate is supposed to advise and consent, not the ABA.
3. Is nominating strong, conservative judges to the judiciary.
4. Supports class action reform bill which limits lawyer fees so that
more
settlement money goes to victims.
Politics
1. His leadership resulted in Republican gains in the House and
Senate,
solidifying Republican control of both houses of Congress and the
presidency.
2. Signed an EO enforcing the Supreme Court's Beck decision regarding
union
dues being used for political campaigns against individual's wishes.
Second Amendment
1. Ordered Attorney General Ashcroft to formally notify the Supreme
Court
that the OFFICIAL U.S. government position on the 2nd Amendment is
that it
supports INDIVIDUAL rights to own firearms, and is NOT a Leftist-
imagined
"collective" right.
2. Signed TWO bills into law that arm our pilots with handguns in the
cockpit.
3. Currently pushing for full immunity from lawsuits for our national
gun
manufacturers.
4. *See Globalization & Internationalism.
Traditional Values, Compassion & Volunteerism
1. Endorses and promotes "The Responsibility Era." President Bush
often
speaks of the necessity of personal responsibility and civic
volunteerism.
He said, "In a compassionate society, people respect one another and
take
responsibility for the decisions they make in life. My hope is to
change the
culture from one that has said, if it feels good, do it; if you've got
a
problem, blame somebody else - to one in which every single American
understands that he or she is responsible for the decisions that you
make;
you're responsible for loving your children with all your heart and
all your
soul; you're responsible for being involved with the quality of the
education of your children; you're responsible for making sure the
community
in which you live is safe; you're responsible for loving your
neighbor, just
like you would like to be loved yourself."
2. Started the USA Freedom Corps, the most comprehensive clearinghouse
of
volunteer opportunities ever offered. For the first time in history,
Americans can enter geographic information about where they want to
get
involved, such as state or zip code, as well as areas of interest
ranging
from education to the environment, and they can access volunteer
opportunities offered by more than 50,000 organizations across the
country
and around the world.
3. Established the The White House Office and the Centers for the
Faith-Based and Community Initiative - located in seven Federal
agencies.
The faith-based initiative supports the essential work of these
important
organizations. The goal is to make sure that grassroots leaders can
compete
on an equal footing for federal dollars, receive greater private
support,
and face fewer bureaucratic barriers. Work focuses on at-risk youth,
ex-offenders, the homeless and hungry, substance abusers, those with
HIV/AIDS, and welfare-to-work families.
4. The White House released a guidebook fully describing the
Administration's belief that faith-based groups have a
Constitutionally-protected right to maintain their religious identity
through hiring - even when Federal funds are involved.
5. Issued an EO implementing the Supreme Court's Olmstead ruling,
which
requires moving disabled people from institutions to community-based
facilities when possible.
6.Increased funding for low-interest loan programs to help people
with
disabilities purchase devices to assist them.
7. Revised the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 8
rent
subsidies to disabled people, permitting them to use up to a year's
worth of
vouchers to finance down payments on homes. HUD has started pilot
programs
in 11 states.
8. Committed US funds to purchase medicine for millions of men, women
and
children now suffering with AIDS in Africa.
9. Heeding the words of our own Declaration of Independence, the
president
laid out the non-negotiable demands of human dignity for all people
everywhere. On January 29, 2002, he said, "No nation owns these
aspirations,
and no nation is exempt from them. We have no intention of imposing
our
culture. But America will always stand firm for the non-negotiable
demands
of human dignity." As stated by the President, they are a virtual
manifesto
Equal Justice
Freedom of Speech
Limited Government Power
Private Property Rights
Religious Tolerance
Respect for Women
Rule of Law
