We seek to educate, inform and persuade the general public
and policy makers on major public
policy issues that America faces. Our focus as a grass
roots organization is on issues related to America's vital national security
After 9/11, organizations such as ours
faced tough times and the vast giving to the Red Cross and
other disaster relief charitable organization took a lions share of the
nations giving and the increasingly burdensome regulatory
environment on organizations engaging in free speech.
In response, our organization has adopted a number of
conservative cause projects spawned by other smaller groups.
The smaller groups were more seriously hurt by the aftermath
of 9/11 and with regulatory compliance costs skyrocketing,

So we stepped in to keep the public debate on those issues
We continue to sponsor projects that
merit public debate and are of vital national interest.
In the past, we have sponsored such conferences as the
American Leadership Conference (formerly the Western
Conservative Conference.), the Conservative Political Acton
Conference, American Conservative Conference and the Mission
to Panama. Our conference speakers have included
Former Congressman Bob Dornan, Lyn Nofziger, Congressman Tom
Tancredo, and an array of public figures including Johnny
Chung of Chinagate fame.
Mission to Panama was a series of unique conferences of
American citizens traveling to Panama to engage in
discussions with Panamanian public and private notables
about the future of the Panama Canal. Our delegation
met with Ambassador to Panama Linda Watt for a one hour
briefing by the department heads. We had
luncheon with then Ambassador to Panama from Taiwan, David
Hu. (Though the Ambassador planned to pay for lunch, we beat his staff to the
register and paid for the meal. The Ambassador in turn, graciously sent every member of our
delegation a huge fruit basket, most of us could not finish
the baskets before leaving Panama. Members of our
delegation appeared on Panamanian radio and television
discussing the issues surrounding the Panama Canal and their
relationship with the United States.
We sponsor projects in the light of the original intent of of the
Drafters of the Constitution. We seek to apply these
fundamental and vital principles in the national debate on important
and often difficult to grasp policy matters. We seek to clarify
the issues for our readers. Our aim is
cut through the jargon and Washington spin and present the issues in a way that the
often muddled public policy implications are clear to the
