The 9 Principles
|1.||America Is Good.|
|2.||I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.|
|God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be |
expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules
of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”
from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
|3.||I must always try to be a more honest person |
than I was yesterday.
|Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness |
and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to
be the most enviable of all titles, the character
of an honest man.” George Washington
|4.||The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the |
ultimate authority, not the government.
|Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only |
that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.
” Thomas Jefferson
|5.||If you break the law you pay the penalty. |
Justice is blind and no one is above it.
|Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our |
government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
|6.||I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of |
happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal
|Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness |
“Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation
in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable
subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
|7.||I work hard for what I have and I will share it with |
who I want to. Government cannot force me to be
|Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth |
charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the
deserving may suffer.” George Washington
|8.||It is not un-American for me to disagree with |
authority or to share my personal opinion.
|On your right to disagree “In a free and republican |
government, you cannot restrain the voice of the
multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more
properly without thinking.” George Washington
|9.||The government works for me. I do not answer to |
them, they answer to me.
|Who works for whom? “I consider the people who |
constitute a society or a nation as the source of all
authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson
