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
Anarchy--Rule by none. Transitional in nature, anarchy
Democracy--Rule by the majority. Also transitional in nature,
democracies tend to deteriorate into either anarchies
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
--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.
