What It Means To Be an American
“My God! how little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!”
For more than 240 years, the United States of America has been a beacon of hope for the world. People have come to America from the four corners of the earth. They left behind their families and homeland for the opportunity to become a part of the fabric of America. They came to claim the promise written in the motto of the United States of America;… E Pluibus Unum … out of many we are one.
The blessings of America come with requirements. They require a commitment to making educated choices in the protection of ourselves, our families and our country. They require being responsible for our own actions. Every citizen is required to safeguard the blessings of liberty and freedom for their fellow citizens.
Freedom comes in a one size fits all guarantee and that is Americans are guaranteed the freedom to follow their dreams, make their own choices and reap the consequence of those choices. But freedom isn’t free. It requires constant vigilance and defense.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.
1. Limited Government
As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people.
2. Fiscal Responsibility
Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable.
3. Personal Responsibility
Liberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.
4. The Rule of Law
Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society
5. National Sovereignty
We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.
