Honestly not trying to be snarky here, but this is my perception of what Republicans believe:
1- The government is the enemy. Government must always be made smaller, all regulations are bad. There is always enough waste and fraud to cut that will more than justify any tax cut.
2- Taxes must always be cut. This will lead to a booming economy and increased government revenues which will justify another round of tax-cutting.
3- Each and every American in military or police uniform is utterly infallible and every shot fired is totally justified.
4- People are poor because of their moral inferiority. Giving them help only contributes to their decadent and immoral behavior.
5- Israel is infallible and is the second most important nation on earth.
6- The US has a special relationship with God and it’s very important to keep “under God” in the pledge and to continue to force children to recite it.
7- When scientific research indicates that actions must be taken that could prove burdensome to the economy, the science must be ridiculed and disbelieved.
8- Obama is a Kenyan Marxist Muslim who follows a radical Christian pastor. Since his every action is by definition unpatriotic, only unflinching opposition to his every move can save the nation.
9- The budget must be balanced, except when a Republican is in the White House.
10- The four Americans killed in Benghazi were the four greatest people in the history of the planet and there will always be a need for more investigations, until the end of Hillary’s second term, that is.
11- The presidency of George W Bush began 9-12-2001 and if not for him, we would have been conquered by Muslims.
12- Abortion is very bad. Actually, they don’t really all believe it. They all say so in order to pick up some easy votes.
13- The Affordable Care Act must be repealed and replaced with an alternative never to be named.
14- Ronald Reagan was the most awesome person ever and we should always follow our imperfect memory of him.
