Grassroots America We the People of Smith County, TX
The foundation of Grassroots America â€“ We the People is based upon the Judeo-Christian Founding Principles of this nation and the freedom and protection of individual rights as guaranteed to citizens by the United States Constitution. We believe the principles of individual freedom, personal responsibility, limited government, rule of law, free enterprise, virtuous citizenship, and economic opportunity for all citizens â€“ regardless of race, creed, or color â€“ are best suited to preserve our nation as it was founded. It is the return to these principles and ideals that we seek at every level of government.
Our members will fulfill their duties and responsibilities as citizens by actively participating in the democratic process and by holding elected officials â€“ at all levels of government â€“ accountable to the Founding Principles of our Framers as defined in the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the accompanying Bill of Rights.
We will advance our ideals in Smith County, Texas, by organizing at the voting precinct level. We will identify those who support the conservative ideals outlined in this Preamble, ensure they are registered to vote, and work to turn out each and every conservative voter in every election.
Furthermore, GAWTP will work to (1) educate fellow citizens in the Founding Principles and the structure of government at all levels; (2) develop sound, commonsense public policy; (3) keep fellow citizens informed; (4) build coalitions around issues of shared concern; (5) encourage all citizens to take active roles in our society through public debate, community leadership, and candidacies for public office; and (6) assist fellow conservatives across Texas and the United States to duplicate the conservative GAWTP model.
The primary mission of GAWTP shall be to limit the size and scope of government, taxes, and regulation based on the Founding Principles of the United States of America as described in the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Through education, research, precinct organization, testimony, lobbying, and necessary legal action, GAWTP will diligently work to steer the United States of America away from its steady march toward progressive, statist, socialist enslavement of the People. Our government â€“ including both parties â€” has long set upon a course that will ultimately destroy the hope, opportunity, and freedom for which our Framers and military veterans fought and died. GAWTP believes it is the urgent responsibility of We the People to unite, stand up, and build a line of defense against the destruction of our country. We will boldly declare our principles and stand ready to debate and defend Liberty in the public square.
