Welcome to the Central Texas 9-12 Project Community!
The Central Texas 912 Project is a community of Americans of many ages, faiths and ethnic backgrounds. We have a common set of principles and values and a common purpose. We believe in the United States of America and in the principles and values which underlie our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
We read and study our founding documents and share what we have learned in meetings, in events, and in our daily lives. We have come to understand that a community of citizens is the cornerstone of our free society. We are all ordinary people who have re-covered an extraordinary gift. We are re-membering the missing perspective that America had lost in the years since our country’s founding. Each day we strive to fill our thoughts with sound information based on principle. We recognize that it is our responsibility to maintain this great republic. Throughout our nation’s history many have given their all so that we might live in freedom. We have pledged to one another “our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor” so that we might pass this great gift on to those Americans who come after us.
More than two hundred years ago America’s Founding Fathers embarked on a great experiment to forge a new nation, the United States of America. The new way of governing which they created had been dreamed of in ages past, but never fully implemented. No nation in history had ever tried or succeeded in forming a government based on the principle that the rights of a people came from someone or something higher than man. Our Founders believed that the rights of man come from law that is set by God. It is termed “natural law.“
The past 200 hundred years of our nation’s history have been a slow transition away from the original intent of the framers of our Constitution. Our nation’s citizens have stood idly by as all branches of our federal government have altered the government bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers. This subversion of our Constitution occurred by legislation, court order and/or executive decree.
Americans have been too trusting of their elected officials, believing what those officials said rather than watching carefully what those same officials did. While American citizens built the most prosperous and generous nation the world has ever known, our elected and appointed federal officials have quietly stolen away our freedoms to enrich themselves and their friends.
As our first principle firmly declares that “America is Good”, so we believe that Americans working together can return our nation to its rightful place as “the shining city on a hill”. Our nation has the capacity to lead all peoples and all nations of the world to the blessings of freedom.
The nine Principles and twelve Values in which we believe are based on natural law. We have defined those Principles and Values below. The definitions are based on a process of study and extended conversations over a period of nearly a year.
