Seven Important Principles We Believe In

lifeThe 5th Amendment states:

“No Person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”.

The 14th Amendment states:

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”.

The Declaration of Independence states:


libertyThe Bill of Rights is the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. Because we will refer to the fourth and fifth amendments, let’s read them in their entirety:

Amendment IV:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Amendment V:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

propertyThe 4th Amendment states:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The 5th Amendment further protects property, by stating:

“No person shall be … deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

familyFounding Father: Noah Webster, History of the United States, “Advice to The Young” [1832]:

“Parents are the natural guardians of their children. It is their duty to feed, clothe, protect and educate them; and for these purposes it is proper and necessary that parents should have authority to direct their actions.”

“It is proper that parents should be entrusted with the instruction of children…”
“…children should obey their parents…their obedience should be prompt and cheerful.”
“…it is a primary duty of children to “Honor their father and mother.” …it forbids all rudeness and ill manners towards them.”

Genesis 2:24

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (ESV)

Proverbs 22:6

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

bill of rightsThese founding documents are the bedrock of our Liberty and the Supreme Law of the Land. The sole purpose of government, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, is to secure our unalienable rights given us by our Creator. When Government grows beyond this scope, it is usurpation, and liberty is compromised. We believe the major issues we face today are best solved by a renewed allegiance to the original intent of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Thomas Jefferson – Letter to Judge William Johnson, (from Monticello, June 12, 1823)

“On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

states rightsArticle 10 of The Bill of Rights states the following:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The Constitution delegated few, enumerated powers to the Federal Government, reserving all remaining powers to the States and the people. Thus, powers of the Federal were the exception. Our federal republic was created by joint action of the several states. It has been gradually perverted into a socialist machine for federal control in the domestic affairs of the states. The federal government has no authority to mandate policies relating to state education, natural resources, transportation, private business, housing, health care, ad infinitum.

american sovereigntyAmong “the essential principles of government” In his first inaugural address, Thomas Jefferson deemed the following:

“…peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.”

Previously, George Washington in has farewell address, stated the following:

“It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliance with any portion of the foreign world.”
