912

I am waiting to hear from the Glenn beck staff about starting a 912 Project group in my area. For those not familiar, the 9/12 project was founded by Glenn Beck.

Nine stands for the 9 principals we agree to stand on:
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 results.
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 charitable.
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

There are Twelve VALUES we share:
The 12 Values
* Honesty
* Reverence
* Hope
* Thrift
* Humility
* Charity
* Sincerity
* Moderation
* Hard Work
* Courage
* Personal Responsibility
* Gratitude

People across the country are coming together to unite and say ENOUGH! If you agree with these principles and values, join me in this fight and start a group in your area. This can be achieved through the Glenn Beck website.

The Dems have gained control by beating the pavement and recruiting people not wise enough to see the lunacy being force fed to the American public. It is up to us to take counter measures and fight for our country.

I think that your comment is an under-generalization. I believe that the principals that the United States were built on are good and I believe that in general America is a good country. We are the most generous and forgiving people in the world. Not all Americans are good and not everything we do is right, but over all I think this is a GREAT country. No, I do not believe in "blind worship" and I do not "worship" the Unites States. I worship Jesus Christ and am grateful for the home he has provided. I think there is a huge leap from what is posted and your comment. I will never be a socialist that just goes along with what my country does because we are America. I think you may have missed the point.

Since I merely posted the list from the Glenn Beck website to explain the 912 Project, maybe you would understand better if you went to his site to read more about what he is doing. Perhaps I did not do it justice with my meager post.

I feel AWFUL... I'm way passionate and I'm very direct in how I communicate. I see that you stopped posting. I deleted previous comments - I hope I didn't rain on your parade.

I'm the kind of person - I could say something like that in person and you and I would look at each other and smile, still be friends, and I wouldn't have rained on your parade.

I hope you start posting again.
