ConservativesOf is a PAC (Political Action Committee) identifying and endorsing / recommending Conservative Candidates and Legislative Measures throughout the United States.
ConservativesOf maintains the following Platform and Organizational Statement as outlining the Fundamental Principles of Conservatism, of which Political Candidates and legislative Ballot Measures and Initiatives must align where applicable in order to merit Endorsements:
The Recognition of our Constitutional Republican System of Government:
ConservativesOf maintains that it is essential for citizens & candidates to understand and preserve our Constitutional Republican System of Government as being fundamental to the preservation of Individual Rights and National Liberty, as opposed to an unfettered Democracy or Conventional Republic.
ConservativesOf is opposed to all forms of Abortion and Euthanasia for any reason, recognizing it as an act of willful extermination of innocent human life.
The Right to Bear Arms / 2A:
ConservativesOf is opposed to any Political Position or Legislative Measure / Initiative, and the Candidate(s) who endorse them designed / intended to mitigate or eliminate the Constitutional Right to Bear Arms on behalf of law abiding citizens on any level; Federal, State & Local.
Religious Liberty and Freedom of Speech / 1A - as stipulated by the Bill of Rights contained within our Constitution
Preservation of the Entirety and Integrity of the Constitution of the United States as intended by the Founders - Originalist:
ConservativesOf is opposed to any Amendment, Legislative Measure, or Candidate(s) who favor them, which would undermine, mitigate or attempt to eliminate any and all Inalienable Rights as stipulated in the Founding Documents of the United States; the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. ConservativesOf insists on an Originalist interpretation of the Founding Documents, and is opposed to Textualisms or a “Living Document” approach to interpretation of Constitutional Law.
Preservation of the Principles and Laws of First Mention and Constitutional Precedent:
ConservativesOf maintains it is not within the purview of the Government on any level to change the fundamental and longstanding Definition of Terms and establish Law based upon those changes.
ConservativesOf maintains the fiscally conservative position that the objective of Balancing the Budgets of any and all Jurisdictions on the Federal, State and Local levels are necessary for achieving and maintaining fiscal responsibility, and the economic viability of the Nation as a whole.
Lower as opposed to Higher Tax, Regulatory and Redistribution Thresholds:
ConservativesOf maintains the Individual Rights and Liberties of a free and Constitutional Republic are most effectively preserved when economic collectivism is mitigated in favor of maintaining lower taxes and regulatory burdens.
Function and Purpose:
The ConservativesOf PAC, domain and associated Social Media representations (will) serve as a nationwide Mass Mobilization hub for the purpose of gathering and providing information on Candidates and Ballot Measures / Initiatives of all three levels of the political arena: Local, State and Federal, with a focus on often overlooked Local Elections especially which are “nonpartisan” in nature, more numerous, and therefore often more difficult to acquire the pertinent information regarding their ideological and political affiliations and origins.
In the long term, as information is acquired and more and more localities are represented by ConservativesOf “trustees” / representatives throughout the Nation, ConservativesOf.com becomes a Search feature in which the name of the locality and its associated State is typed into the search field, such as: ConservativesOf: Eagle, Idaho. When the search icon is tapped or clicked (selected), the vetted Candidates and Ballot Measures / Initiatives representative of the Conservative position in that respective locality, as well as party affiliation when available populates with the names of the endorsed or recommended Candidates and Ballot Initiative positions.
ConservativesOf will also act as an informational and event hub for other Conservative website sources and PACs, as well as conferences, forums, and other grassroots efforts focusing on providing information and mobilizing Conservatives to vote for the Conservative candidates and Ballot Initiatives while exposing and countermanding all oppositional efforts.
Problem and Solution:
The Nonpartisan nature of many local elections present the problem of a potential inability to identify and determine which candidates and ballot measures are representative of the conservative position due to undisclosed or not readily available party affiliation, origin and purpose. Even when local elections are not nonpartisan in nature, oftentimes information on local candidates and Measures are not as readily available in contrast to information concerning State and Federal elections. ConservativesOf will act as a “one stop” web based hub in which over time, every jurisdiction will be covered / represented with the properly vetted pertinent information on Candidate names and Ballot Measures / Initiatives representative of the Conservative position in order to mitigate or eliminate the problem of ignorance and misinformation which could potentially cause voters to cast their ballots for Candidates and Initiatives not actually and adequately representative of their values and intentions.
ConservativesOf will utilize local based Conservative and Faith Based organizations, ministries and efforts to provide “trustees” acquainted with and privy to the necessary information on each Candidate and Initiative to determine whether or not an official ConservativesOf endorsement and / or recommendation is merited, as well as mobilize the vote in each and every one of those areas while pointing potential voters to the ConservativesOf website providing the necessary information.
FreedomStand Events and Conferences:
"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."
President Ronald Reagan
The vision for FreedomStand conferences and events are to generate awareness concerning the origins and nature of our Constitutional Republican system of government, as well as the constant attempts by political leaders and organizations to infringe upon them for various ulterior motives and intents, or due to a lack of understanding with regard to their purposes and virtues as they establish and maintain our inalienable rights and national liberties. FreedomStand features prominent Conservative speakers and thinkers who are able to effectively articulate the Conservative message and galvanize support and a call to action and political and civic engagement.
The Foundation of Liberty
The foundation of liberty is established not with absolute and unfettered democracy, where tyrants can be voted and freedom can be voted out; but by God, upon Constitutional Republican governance in which democratic process plays a limited role within the framework and to the accountability of its founding documents, rooted in the Biblical ethics and principles from which they were derived. The prayers and moral vigilance of the people are indispensable elements for its maintenance, and to the extent they are forsaken, the freedom which has been entrusted to every citizen shall be as well.
The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God Versus Secularism and the Doctrines of Men
It is our Judeo-Christian principles which delineate "the laws of nature and of nature's God," which guarantee the rights of the citizens of a free society. These are articulated in detail as the fundamental cornerstone of civil society and government in William Blackstone's Laws of England, and John Locke's Two Treatises on Government, quoted and sighted by the Founders probably more than any other source apart from the Scriptures as being the primary influencers for the construction of our Constitution. Both Locke and Blackstone predicated their philosophies of government on the 5 books of Moses, the Book of Isaiah, the Gospels, and the Book of Romans. Ironically, the thinking was that only fixed, immovable law originating from a benign and benevolent Law Giver is capable of identifying and ensuring the inalienable rights of the people.
Collectivist ideologies, on the other hand, are established on subjective reasoning, situational ethics, moral relativism and the ends justifying any means necessary to achieve a specific objective / end. According to ideological collectivism, if murdering tens of millions of innocent people is "necessary" to save the planet, cut down on "greenhouse gases," eliminate the "discordant," unproductive," racially, mentally and physically inferior, etc., it could be justified according to the supposed "principles" of Socialism, Communism, Progressivism, Fascism, Eugenics, and Collectivism in general, as right and wrong are reduced to what is right for the collective based on subjectivity as opposed to clearly defined moral absolutes.
Judeo-Christian principles define and condemn murder, theft, and a host of other civil terms which establish social and legal principles and contracts to ensure "domestic tranquility," enumerate inalienable rights and prevent tyranny.
Civil Disobedience vs. Civil Obedience?
The term "civil disobedience" should be understood and used appropriately and with greater care when attributed to those actions that people undertake which are in accordance with the Constitution and in protest of authoritarian, unconstitutional mandates. In reality, those are not acts of disobedience at all, but rather the duty of every citizen who recognizes the importance of maintaining the inalienable rights guaranteed by our Founders and enumerated within our founding documents. It is the tyrannical mandates themselves, and the political renegades who authored them, who are guilty of disobedience; to the very laws and principles upon which our nation was established.
