GOT PRINCIPLES? The first 3 in review.


9 Principles and 12 Values – Who we are in South Florida 912

Last year we took the time to review the 12 values that our group stands on. For a quick refresher at a glance see below.

Principles and Values

We believe in 9 principles and 12 values.

Principles

  1. America is good place, not perfect, but good.
  2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life.
  3. I must try to be a better, more honest person than I was yesterday.
  4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority.
  5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
  6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness and not a guarantee of equal results.
  7. I work hard for what I have. I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
  8. It is not un-American for me to disagree or share my personal opinion.
  9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them. They answer to me.

Values

  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard work

To bring us into the last 3 months before the November election I want to review and remind us about the 9 Principles our group stands on.

The first three will be review for the Month of September.

  1. America is good place, not perfect, but good.
  2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life.
  3. I must try to be a better, more honest person than I was yesterday.
  1. America is a good place, not perfect but good.
    This is such an important Principle to our group. I love my country. However, I know that our country has been complicit in things in our history that I am not proud of. However I am proud that as we move ahead we learn each day and move forward. In my view our country is the best in the world. It is far from perfect but in a free society, the ability to speak up and out and the freedom to worship are such amazing things. So many people forget how lucky we are to be able to choose where we worship, shop, to carry a gun or speak out on an issue. America is truly a great place that so many have sought to come here. My husband’s family came from the Ukraine, moved to Canada and finally was able to make it to the USA becoming citizens in the 60’s. My husband’s mom was born in Canada and she became a citizen as a young adult. The pride that they had to be Americans was one that makes you stand a little taller, a little straighter, and wave your American flag. I recognize that slavery was very bad, and the treatment of the Indians was horrible, and so many other injustices. For example: Japanese that were put in internment camps, some wars we had no business getting in etc… People can make a long list of their points about our Country’s issues. America however, is the light in the distance that others dream about. Our country is such a terrific place where my father, a young German/Puerto Rican man who served his country as a Marine, then labored on the side of the road in construction can one day own his own business raise 5 kids and be proud of where he came from, and where he is today. America gives us that freedom to dream, look ahead and be proud. We also learn from our mistakes and continue, I believe, to strive to be better.
  2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life.
    Boy this is #1 in my life and our group. With God as the focus we can stay principled and adhere to our values naturally. My personal relationship with Christ is my guidepost for everything I do. Others in our group are faithful in their own religions and beliefs as well. I know that with God all things are possible and that we are honor bound by our faith to strive to be better, truthful, individuals and to work hard to share our faith in God and encourage others to be aware of what is going on around us to be involved and to speak up. Our rights come from God not government and knowing this is at the core of our group as we strive to preserve those rights.
  3. I must try to be a better, more honest person than I was yesterday.
    This is easy as an American and as a person of faith this is a basic tenant. I want and strive every day to be a better Wife, Mother, Employee, and an American Citizen. I want to give more to charity, work harder at work. Strive harder as a Mother and Wife. Every day I look back and take stock and I try to see what I did wrong (can be a lot… at times), and what I may have done right. Its important for us to move on and be better and work harder every day.

This journey is heading us towards November and we must be encouraged. We also must encourage others. We need to get involved and we need to vote and get others to be registered and to actually vote on November 6th.

Stop by the 912 site in October for the next three Principles in review and finally the last 3 in November.
