Kevin Cramer on Principles & Values

 

 


Vigorously defend right to practice religion of one's choice

The right to express one's political views, to observe and practice the religion of one's choice and to freely publish one's thoughts and ideas are fundamental to the protection of civil liberties. All are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. These rights need to be vigorously guarded and defended. Freedom isn't free and it will not be maintained without the active engagement of the governed.

Member of the House Republican Young Guns.

Cramer is a member House Republican Young Guns

The new generation of pro-market, small government leaders filled such a need that in October 2007, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard profiled Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy and christened them the "young guns."

Kevin approached Eric & Paul about the idea of traveling together, as "Young Guns", to visit Republican candidates interested in a new approach for the party.

What began as an informal way to support like-minded candidates became a more formal structure. Once the three Representatives had studied the candidate and given their support to become a Young Gun, they committed to providing financial support through their campaign committees.

Existing House Republicans were approached with a simple pitch: Are we willing to help ourselves by being proactive and going on the offense to change this House? Dozens of our House Republican colleagues joined the Young Gun effort as one of the many signs that the Republican Party had shifted.
