Overview

America is at a critical time in our nation's history when the American Character established by the Founding Fathers and whom countless Americans have fought and died to defend, is under attack from those who have a different set of principles and values. There is a loud minority of leadership in America today whose primary character traits are knowledge, power, control, social justice, interdependence, fairness and collective equality.

This is a far contrast from the character of our Founders, and the framework of character they devised in our system of government, of the people, by the people, and for the people. And it is the breakdown of this framework of character that is threatening the existence of our country, as we have known it.

This loud minority of leaders who oppose America Values, have been able to hijack the character of large groups of Americans whose individual character is not anchored in Truth and Wisdom of the God-centered, Judeo-Christian values the Founders drafted and the nation adopted in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States. America today is divided on values and principles (the American True North) and as a result the American Character is weakened, as is our force for good in the world.

The good news is that we have the history and record as the most prosperous nation on earth, and the power and strength of individual character, to nullify the change of course attempted by leaders with a secular True North. We do this by reinforcing our personal True North in American Values promoting individual liberty and prosperity that will strengthen the American Character, and we can, once again, become the greatest force for good in the world. It happens one individual at a time through the power of Wisdom.
