What is Americanism?

The definition of Americanism can be as multifaceted and multidimensional as Americans themselves. It is the steadfast, unfaltering, and unwavering conviction that America stands exceptional, paramount, distinguished and eminent from the rest of the world. It is the belief that prosperity and achievement emanates from enterprise and industriousness manifested from individualistic initiative, not from the grace of government. It is the fervor that impels individuals to search within themselves the ambition to succeed, and the impetus to encourage others to follow their own course, and that dignity come from self-reliance and effort.

Americanism is the understanding and appreciation of our nation’s past. It is the ability to laud its successes, lament its shortcomings, and forgive its sins. It is the full comprehension of our governmental mechanisms, and the willful and eager participation in its electoral process. It is the belief that self-governance is a uniquely American ideal and the only means to secure the freedoms and liberties ordained by God. It is the unwavering conviction that America’s leaders, elected or appointed, are accountable to its people, and that chicanery and machination from nefarious politicians is intolerable.
Americanism is understanding Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and that those rights are not allocated by the whim of man, but ordained by the providence of God. It is the staunch belief in “E Pluribus Unum,” from many, we are one. It is the understanding we are of many different continents, countries, religions, and cultures, but as Americans, we share one defining culture. It is the culture of life, liberty, forbearance, and the freedom to pursue happiness and prosperity. It is the culture that abhors the derision and devaluation of our country, but celebrates its attributes and values, and extends them to others.
Americanism is the belief in the promise of the future. It is the ability to withstand the adversity and tribulations we are often faced with, but meet with ardent determination and resolve. Americans do not flinch in the face of danger. We defend our liberties and champion those who have never known it. We are the consummate guardians of freedom and purveyors of liberty.

“Stripped for the hardest work, every muscle firm and elastic, every ounce of brain ready for use, and not a trace of superfluous flesh on his nervous and supple body, the American stood in the world a new order of man.” – Henry Adams, 1801 


Bill of Rights

Bill of Rights

The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.


Constitution of the United States of America

Constitution of the United States of America

We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


Why I Am a Republican

Why I Am a Republican

I am a Republican Because…

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability, and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice, and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age, or disability.

I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth, and prosperity.

I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.

I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible, and responsive government is the government closest to the people.

I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom, and human rights throughout the world.

FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
