1. WE must turn our hearts back to the God who brought forth the cause of liberty in the establishment of this nation as a free land. Individuals, families, congregations, communities, and the entire nation must return to righteousness. WE must recognize His hand in all WE have been blessed with, and WE must be obedient to His will.
2. WE must learn the foundational principles upon which this nation was established. WE must return to the “original intent” embodied in the plain English words of the Constitution. Read and ponder the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, Washington’s Farewell Address, and other great works of the American founders.
Thomas Jefferson said, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free … it expects what never was and never will be” (Letter to Colonel Charles Yancey, 6 Jan. 1816).
WE must become informed and knowledgeable so WE can defend the principles of liberty and proper government.
3. WE must become involved in the affairs of government to see that WE are properly represented.
WE must find and promote individuals as candidates who are soundly founded in their understanding and commitment to the principles of proper government as put forth in the United States Constitution, and who are willing to become our representatives. Good and honest people who are wise enough to keep government within its proper bounds must be sought out. WE must do more than give lip service to this effort. The founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to the establishment of these United States. It will take substantial amounts of OUR time, talents, and financial means to retain what they gave us at such great cost.
4. When we have proper understanding and accurate information, we must continue through all appropriate means to influence the proper direction of our government by contacting our representatives to insist they keep their actions within the bounds established within the Constitution, publishing letters to the editor, calling in to talk radio, always teaching and advising those we may influence, AND voting correctly.
