“A constitution founded on these principles introduces knowledge among the people, and inspires them with a conscious dignity becoming freemen; a general emulation takes place, which causes good humor, sociability, good manners, and good morals to be general. That elevation of sentiment inspired by such a government, makes the common people brave and enterprising. That ambition which is inspired by it makes them sober, industrious, and frugal.”
John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
SANCTITY OF LIFE
Life for all human beings:
from conception to natural death.
Freedom of conscience and actions
for the self-governed individual.
One husband and one wife with their children,
as divinely instituted.
PERSONAL AND PRIVATE
Each individual’s right to own and steward
personal property without government burden.
BILL OF RIGHTS
The Founding Documents interpreted according
to the Actual Intent of the Founding Fathers.
Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution
to the federal government,
nor prohibited by the Constitution
to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people.
American government committed to the protection
of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans,
with no entanglement in foreign alliances.
