What Patriots Believe

July 4th, 2021 - Posted By: Progress Iowa

Patriots believe that America’s strength comes from our ability to work together. No matter where we come from or what our color, patriots believe we can make this a place where freedom is for everyone, no exceptions.

Patriots want to make it as easy as possible for every American to exercise our right to vote.

Patriots contribute our fair share in taxes for our public schools, roads, clean drinking water, health care, and more.

Patriots believe in an honest education about our history, even when it’s critical, so we can learn from the past and create a better future together.

Patriots respect every American’s right to express our faith, and believe faith should never be used as an excuse for discrimination.

Patriots believe the American dream is big enough for every citizen, and everyone who aspires to come to our country in pursuit of a better life.

Patriots celebrate our independence year-round, by participating in our democracy, standing together across race and place, to fight for the country we all deserve.
