Americanism Defined

Americanism is that form of government that is described in the Constitution of the United States. It is a very unique system that operates on the premise that the governent that governs least governs most effective.

The foundation of Americanism is the fact that people are born free. That it is usually not necessary to control people through denial of freedom or through force. That people can prosper and can find happiness when government is limited. That there is no better incentive to be productive than when those who produce are able to retain the fruits of their labors. That the essence of freedom is the limitation of government.

Americanism is a republican form of government. It is founded on the premise that "Men...are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights". "That to secure these Rights, Governments are created among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed".

Some other forms of government which are all undesirable are:

Anarchy--Rule by none. Transitional in nature, anarchy creates chaos.

Democracy--Rule by the majority. Also transitional in nature, democracies tend to deteriorate into either anarchies or oligarchies.

Oligarchy--Rule by a few. The oligarchy is the most common form of government, and usually has an elite ruling class. Socialism, Fascism, Naziism, Communism, are all oligarchies.

Monarchy/dictatorship--Rule by one. In reality, both monarchies and dictatorships are oligarchies, with a single figurehead to implement the desires of the ruling class.

When people demand equalization of wealth or privilege, the incentative to be productive vanishes.

We affirm the principles of inherent individual rights upon which these United States were founded:

--That each individual is endowed by his Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of the individual's personal interest so long as such pursuits do not trespass on the rights of others.

--That the freedom to own, use, exchange, control, protect, and freely dispose of property is a natural, necessary, and inseparable extension of the individual's unalienable rights.

--That the legitimate function of government is to safeguard those rights through the preservation of domestic tranquillity, the maintenance a strong defense and the equal promotion of equal justice for all.

--That history makes clear that if left unchecked it is the nature of government to usurp the liberty of its citizens and eventually to become a major violator of the people's rights.

--Therefore, it is essential to bind government with the chains of the Constitution and jealously limit government's powers to those assigned by the consent of the governed.

We call on all to join with us in the pursuit of certain goals and in the restoration of our founding principles. We speak for every American: hardworking, productive, taxpaying men and women who constitute the backbone and the heart of the American Republic and its character.

We are the producers. We are the ones who should be first considered and always remembered. It is on our backs that government is carried, and it is out of our pockets that government is financed. Without us and without the product of our skills and labors, there would be no source to fund the legitimate functions of government nor would there be charity to support the private institutions helping those in need.

No nation can survive if it fails to address the problems which concern her citizens. To these productive but generally forgotten Americans, we offer the principles that respond to their needs. This is the voice that speaks of them and for them, as does that of no one else.
