Understanding the American Form of Government Is Essential for Preserving Liberty


There is a distinctively American view of law and of the role, purpose, and conduct of civil government. This American View rests firmly on Biblical foundations and requires, for its successful functioning, a moral and religious culture. That is to say, it requires a citizenry which is not only knowledgeable regarding the revealed Word of God and His moral principles and precepts, but also a citizenry which is committed to living liberty by observing His law.

The distinctives of this “American View” are eloquently expressed in the Declaration of Independence and can be summarized thusly:

  • There is an Omniscient, Almighty, Creator God whose Son is Jesus Christ, the Savior and the Lord.
  • Our rights to life, liberty and property come from Him.  They are a part of His Creation.
  • The sole purpose of civil government is to protect these God-given rights.

This is the belief system that forms the underpinning of American government. There can be no expectation of personal liberty, or freedom of speech, or freedom of association, or freedom of movement, or freedom of worship, and no hope of peaceful enjoyment of real or personal property unless these foundational beliefs are understood by the people, embraced by the people, and vigorously defended by the people.

These essential, foundational, structural beliefs can be found in all the official documents of our founding. Moreover, our Founders’ papers and their correspondence are replete with references to these beliefs.

Today, our once strong country is being dismantled from within by domestic enemies that do not hide their contempt for the God-honoring worldview on which our future happiness rests and our liberty depends.

Resisting this evil, some of us have begun to rebuild the foundations by recommitting ourselves to learning and to living liberty, as we apply this original American View of law and government. We want to know the Constitution and we want you to know it, and we want to elect only those who will follow it!
