'The Citizen-Led Campaign to Save America'
America's Party purpose? The same as the stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution: “To secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
"It should come as no surprise to anyone that those who want to change the definition of the word "marriage" are mostly the same people who have changed the definitions of crucially-important words like "person," "posterity," "life," "equal," and "due process," leading to the slaughter of more than fifty million innocent children in this country alone.
Justice, the rule of law, and in fact civilization itself, are impossible without a common, reasonable understanding of the meanings of words, one that is based in an awareness of the laws of nature and of nature's God.
Destroy that, and ultimately, you will have destroyed everything.
Words mean things. Never forget that."

Attitude is everything.
If a plane coming in for a landing has the wrong attitude, it will crash and burn.
If an electrical plug on an appliance has the wrong attitude in relation to the receptacle, it can never access the power.
If a basketball player has the wrong attitude in relation to the basket, he can never make a shot.
You get the point.
The record of history is clear: if a nation has the wrong attitude towards Almighty God, and towards the God-given rights of those who are made in His image and likeness, it cannot long enjoy the Blessings of Liberty.
Here is the chosen attitude of the leaders of America's Party, the only attitude that we believe can possibly save America:
"If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God."
- George Washington About America's Party
"Civilized men and women respect and protect the lives, the liberty, and the property of every individual person. They value the natural family as a wellspring of spiritual, moral, and physical blessing.
Barbarians, on the other hand, have no sexual mores. They kill the innocent, even helpless little children, and enslave and plunder the people.
Folks, in our day, the barbarians are not only inside the gate, they are in the seats of government.
What are you doing to re-civilize America?"

"Another not unimportant consideration is, that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers, and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse, and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the state."
-- Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
"God has given to men all that is necessary for them to accomplish their destinies. He has provided a social form as well as a human form. And these social organs of persons are so constituted that they will develop themselves harmoniously in the clean air of Liberty. Away, then with quacks and organizers! Away with their rings, chains, hooks, and pincers! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their governmental schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their restrictions, their equalization by taxation, and their pious moralizations! And now that the legislator and do-gooders have so futiley inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works."
-- Frederic Bastiat, The Law, 1850
A political plea to American Christians
It's time for people to grow up, and put aside as trivial any remaining racial, ethnic, or class differences. All this divide-and-conquer, crypto-racist, political hack-talk about "demographics"? Ignore it. We're all Americans. We're one nation, under God. (As per Galatians 3:28
Put aside denominational squabbling and the politics of personality. (Read I Corinthians 1:10-13
Put aside regional and party factionalism. It's dangerous and destructive to the bulwarks of American liberty. (Read George Washington's Farewell Address
Foreswear reliance on the money and media interests. We know from decades of experience that they are anathema to government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Instead, BE THE MEDIA, and consistently focus public attention on the self-evident truths of the nation's founding, in whatever forums you can:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..." (The Declaration of Independence)
Now there's something that matters. So much so, that it is not hyperbole to say that the fate of the American republic hinges on our return to the principles espoused in that one paragraph.
Hear the words of Abraham Lincoln:
"Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks of the Declaration of Independence; if you have listened to suggestions which would take away from its grandeur and mutilate the fair symmetry of its proportions; if you have been inclined to believe that all men are not created equal in those inalienable rights enumerated by our chart of liberty, let me entreat you to come back. Return to the fountain whose waters spring close by the blood of the Revolution. Think nothing of me — take no thought for the political fate of any man whomsoever — but come back to the truths that are in the Declaration of Independence. You may do anything with me you choose, if you will but heed these sacred principles. You may not only defeat me for the Senate, but you may take me and put me to death. While pretending no indifference to earthly honors, I do claim to be actuated in this contest by something higher than an anxiety for office. I charge you to drop every paltry and insignificant thought for any man's success. It is nothing; I am nothing; Judge Douglas is nothing. But do not destroy that immortal emblem of Humanity — the Declaration of American Independence."
And Frederick Douglass:
"[T]he Declaration of Independence is the RINGBOLT to the chain of your nation's destiny...The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in. all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost. From the round top of your ship of state, dark and threatening clouds may be seen. Heavy billows, like mountains in the distance, disclose to the leeward huge forms of flinty rocks! That bolt drawn, that chain, broken, and all is lost. Cling...to its principles, with the grasp of a storm-tossed mariner to a spar at midnight. "
Please, from now on, make this the plumb line of your political thought and action, without compromise.
Then join yourself to other patriots who have made the same resolve.
It's the only way back. It's the only way that we will fulfill the ultimate stated purpose of our Constitution:
"To secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."
To put it in the simplest terms: Do it for yourself, and for your kids and your grandkids.
And, remember what the father of the American Revolution, Samuel Adams, said:
"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
Forty years of lawlessness
Well, it's been forty years since the infamous court opinion we call Roe vs. Wade. An entire generation has now slaughtered their posterity.
Under the color of "law."
Of course, rightfully, Roe is no more relevant than Dred Scott vs. Sanford.
As Augustine said long ago:
"An unjust law is no law at all."
And Roe was not a law anyhow. It was a lawless court decision in a particular case, one which can only rightfully be ignored by decent Americans. Constitutionally, only Congress can make laws, and they can only make laws that are in accord with the Constitution if they are to be considered legitimate.
The Constitution explicitly and imperatively says:
"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law."
"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Abortion is illegal. Always has been, always will be. Anyone who tells you otherwise is completely deceived, or outright lying.
"Good and wise men, in all ages...have supposed, that the deity, from the relations, we stand in, to himself and to each other, has constituted an eternal and immutable law, which is, indispensably, obligatory upon all mankind, prior to any human institution whatever...This is what is called the law of nature, which, being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God himself, is, of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries at all times. No human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid, derive all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original."
"Upon this law, depend the natural rights of mankind, the supreme being gave existence to man, together with the means of preserving and beautifying that existence. He endowed him with rational faculties, by the help of which, to discern and pursue such things, as were consistent with his duty and interest, and invested him with an inviolable right to personal liberty and personal safety.
"Hence, in a state of nature, no man has any moral power to deprive another of his life, limbs, property, or liberty; nor the least authority to command, or exact obedience from him....
"Hence also, the origin of all civil government, justly established, must be a voluntary compact, between the rulers and the ruled; and must be liable to such limitations, as are necessary for the security of the absolute rights of the latter; for what original title can any man or set of men have, to govern others, except their own consent? To usurp dominion over a people, in their own despite, or to grasp at more extensive power than they are willing to entrust, is to violate that law of nature, which gives every man the right to his personal liberty; and can, therefore, confer no obligation to obedience."
"When human laws contradict or discountenance the means, which are necessary to preserve the essential rights of any society, they defeat the proper end of all laws, and so become null and void."
The ultimate stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to...secure the Blessings of Liberty to...our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
The reason all human government exists, according to our founders:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."
