John's position on the important issues for the Cape Cod & Islands

John Flores headshotMany voters, Republican, Democrat, and Unenrolled have asked me what I believe in and what I will represent as a Cape & Islands candidate for State Senate.  I thought I would share the Barnstable Republican Oath and the values it represents, which I believe embraces both Democratic and Republican parties, the unenrolled and probably most common- sense people. Hence, I ask you to read it, reflect on it and if so desired, comment on it by sending me an email at



I believe that the proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well by individuals and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.

I believe that good government is based on the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.

I believe that free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.

I believe that sound money policy should be our goal.

I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin. I believe that persons with disabilities should be afforded equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity as well.

I believe we must retain those principles worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.

I believe that Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time, share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
