Power from the people...

Would you agree that our precious freedoms are taken for granted by most citizens? Many people complain about what is wrong with our government but will not, or don't know how, to take constructive action to do anything about it. It has been said that if the United States ceases to be a world power, its demise will come from within. To keep that from happening, and to preserve our freedoms, we must fight for and insist upon maintaining the vision of our Founding Fathers.

We are living under a system of government that derives its powers from the people...from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It was first introduced in its basic form by a young delegate from Virginia by the name of James Madison. Madison is often called the "Father of the Constitution," and was the fourth President of the United States.

The Constitution and our Founding Fathers made it clear that the government must derive its power from the people. Unfortunately, this message is lost in our age of apathy, lobbies and special interest groups. That is why our work is so important. We fight to keep the power with the people as our Founding Fathers envisioned.
