Posted: Wednesday, December 7, 2011 1:00 pm

We the people resolve to uphold and defend our nation's fundamental principles of freedom and liberty for all as set forth in our Declaration of Independence and in the Constitution of the United States of America.

We the people resolve to constrain the size of all government - local, state and federal.

We the people resolve to return government to the hands of the people.

We the people resolve to reform the education system to assure that American history, economics, science and the social sciences are purged of the Marxist doctrine, which has become pervasive during the past 100 years.

We the people resolve to spend only what is necessary, and to tax only to raise revenue for essential government functions and to provide for the common defense of our nation and our state.

We the people resolve never to pretend that government is a substitute for family or community.

We the people resolve to unleash the power of free enterprise, free markets, innovation, civic energy, and the American spirit.

To these ends, we pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

To paraphrase George Santayana - If you know history, you won't repeat it.

With the reawakening of the American spirit, may 2012 be as great as 1776.

Don Kennedy
