Phil Bryant on Principles & Values


Four fundamental beliefs guide our plan for the future

We understand that a vision without action is just an illusion, so we set about with four fundamental beliefs guiding our plan for the future.
  1. We believe every Mississippian should have the opportunity to be gainfully employed right here at home;
  2. Every Mississippian must have the opportunity to learn from the best educational system we can offer;
  3. We believe that every Mississippian deserves to be born into a mature, two-parent family;
  4. We believe that every Mississippian should be certain that his or her tax dollars are put to proper use. I believe that these four goals achieved together will create a Mississippi of limitless opportunity. Let us see how the plan has worked thus far.

    Add 'In God We Trust' to Mississippi State Seal

    I continue to believe this is the right time to stand for our beliefs--our faith, our families, and our nation. To strengthen our resolve, I have asked that we take a bold step for God and country. I have called for legislation that would change the wording on the Great Seal of the State of Mississippi to reflect our nation's motto. With your help, the seal of the State of Mississippi will, from this session forward, reflect the simple yet profound words 'In God We Trust'.

    Member of the Tea Party movement.

    Bryant is a member the Tea Party movement

    The Tea Party movement is a populist conservative social movement in the United States that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests were partially in response to several Federal laws: the stimulus package; te healthcare bill; and the TARP bailouts. The name "Tea Party" refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, the source of the phrase, "No Taxation Without Representation."
