"There will never be a really free and enlightened State, until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly."  ~ Henry David Thoreau

 

The primary mission of We the People is to promote the election of candidates to our federal government who will:

  • Represent the People:  Our representatives are supposed to represent us, the people.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of elected officials represent big money:  corporations, large banks, and other special interests.  The word democracy is derived from the Greek demos ‘the people’ and kratia ‘power, rule.’ When the will of the people is subjugated, democracy is destroyed. 
  • Uphold the Constitution:  The federal government was built on the solid foundation of law – the United States Constitution.  However, in order to promote special interests, elected officials routinely overstep constitutional powers and violate civil liberties.  Transgression of the Constitution has undermined the integrity of our government.  Without strict adherence to the spirit and letter of the “supreme law of the land,” our government is prone to corruption.  Structures built on sand are destined to fail.  Electing Constitution-abiding representatives is paramount to an enduring democracy.

Presidential Oath of Office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  (Constitution Article II, Section 1

Congressional Oath of Office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” (U.S. Statute 5 U.S.C. 3331)

 
We the People need to elect public servants to the Presidency and Congress who will fulfill their duty to uphold and defend the Constitution.
