"On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 1823
Our Family and all its members believe in the common theme of Freedom as expressed by the United States Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We believe that government owes its existence and its allegiance to the people of the United States of America and is currently failing to recognize this obligation. We understand and delight in the diversity of America and its people while working toward a unified stance on the rights and freedoms we enjoy.
Our nation's Founders created a republic that gave every citizen the opportunity to succeed and to follow his/her own path to that success. Our Bill of Rights does not describe restrictions upon the people – it describes restrictions upon government. Each of us is free to seek the Divine in our own way, speak out without fear of reprisal, gather together to express our views, arm ourselves for self-defense and the defense of our country, publish truth, be secure in our homes and property, and benefit from equal justice for all. In order for all of us to enjoy and practice these rights, we must accept our responsibilities as individual citizens. Among these responsibilities are the duty to vote one's conscience, recognize the differences between us, and remember that we cannot force our beliefs or opinions on others. E pluribus unem - “out of many, one” - does not mean that every citizen must be alike, nor does it mean the establishment of a “collective.” It is rather a call to unite in purpose – the cause of Freedom.
In light of this, we at Patriot Familys have searched for our common ground. We have found that most of us in the Conservative movement share several fundamental principles and goals and that these can and should be a uniting force.
Our Common Goals
FREEDOM OF RELIGION, NOT FREEDOM FROM RELIGION
AN EDUCATED ELECTORATE
UNITY OF PURPOSE
Each of these goals can be addressed in many ways. There are organizations and groups all over our nation that are addressing them, some with specific methods and interests, others with a broader agenda and more general approach. Engaged and active citizens are making their voices heard in blogs, chat rooms, rallies, and town hall meetings. Letters, phone calls, and faxes are flooding into Congressional offices and State Legislators. The “Silent Majority” is no longer silent – it is awake and aware. We are, however, fragmented in our approach to curing the ills of our current government.
912 Patriot Familys seeks to provide a place where all of us can gather, exchange ideas, express our opinions, learn, and reach out to one another, both individually and by featuring the groups and organizations seeking to restore our Republic. We invite all such groups to join us on our site, engage with us on our Blog talk radio shows, and spread the message of Unity over this great nation.

Whatever happened to our beloved America? Part IV
By Jim Mullen
Our Founders pinned their hopes for an enduring free America on what they believed would be a citizenry dedicated to fighting domestic enemies often, and foreign adversaries, rarely. They warned repeatedly that liberty’s opposition would come from enemies within, and from internal deterioration and decay. Their ceaseless messages and dire admonitions were prophetic. Everything…Continue
This is a little poem that my Minister sent....
I thought I could not
go any closer to grief
I went closer,
and I did not die.
had His hands in this,
as well as friends.
Still, I was bent
and my laughter,
as the poet said,
was nowhere to be found.
Then said my friend Daniel
(brave even among lions),
"It's not the weight you carry
but how you carry it -
