What does Longleaf Politics believe?

We approach politics from the reasonable right-of-center. But these beliefs we hold are much more important:

  • We believe in civil debate.

  • We believe in the marketplace of ideas.

  • We believe people can disagree without one side being evil.

  • We believe in decency and respect.

  • We believe that there’s no such thing as an unbiased news source.

  • We believe that to do is much more difficult and valuable than to criticize from the sidelines.

  • We believe that North Carolina is the best state in the nation and we want it to succeed.
