Purpose and Philosophy

OUR MISSION: Educating others to understand and know our Constitution, acknowledging absolutes as the basis for our laws and God as the giver of freedom, and researching issues through the lens of the Constitution.

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Best seen through the writings and speeches of America's leaders throughout the past four hundred years:

  • EDUCATION AND RESEARCH
    "A popular Government, without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." - James Madison, August 4, 1822
  • ORIGINS OF FREEDOM
    "God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are a gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever." - Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson Memorial, Washington DC
  • PROPER ROLE OF GOVERNMENT
    "The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power; not the increase of it." - Woodrow Wilson, September 9, 1912

    "Were we directed from Washington when to sow and when to reap, we should soon want bread." - Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography

    "The concentration of power is what always precedes the destruction of human initiative, and therefore of human energy." - Woodrow Wilson, September 4, 1912 
  • NATIONAL DEFENSE
    "If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, on of the most powerful instruments of our rising, it must be known that we are at all times ready for War." - George Washington, December 13, 1793
  • OUR DUTY
    "No man is entitled to the blessing of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation." - General Douglas MacArthur, May 3, 1948
