BasicsProject.org, a 501(c)(3) research and
educational initiative, is charged with the advancement of Constitutional
Literacy and exposing the threats of Progressivism and Islamofascism. It is our
hypothesis that the advancement of the oppressive and totalitarian doctrines of
Progressivism (through the manipulation of our system of government) and
Islamofascism (through the portal offered by Progressivism’s tenet of political
correctness and lawfare), coupled with the reality that we exist in a time when
the American populace is effectively constitutionally illiterate, presents a
“perfect storm” that threatens the very existence of the American philosophy,
Americanism, the United States, as known by the Founders and Framers, and, in
fact, Western Civilization itself.
BasicsProject.org works to educate the American people using primary source
materials and culling qualified opinions from both governmental and
non-governmental agencies as well as congressional testimonies and the analysis
of internationally recognized experts and think tanks proven credible.
BasicsProject.org’s goal is the liberation of the American people from what
James Madison called “factions” and special interests in government.
Through educational advocacy for our citizenry and providing access to reliable
information via our publications and events, BasicsProject.org fosters the
re-emergence of civic responsibility and active, responsible participation of
citizens in their government.
We, the American people one and all, need to have a cursory – if not a
comprehensive – understanding of why the Founders and Framers found so much
worth in our nation’s creation and why they valued this endeavor enough to risk
dying for it.
It is difficult to value something when its worth is unknown.
This truth brings to mind the old adage about two children who had received
the same bike, one given the bike, the other made to earn the bike.
Invariably, the child who was given the bike was more prone to neglecting
it, not understanding its worth, while the child who was made to earn the
bike, who understood its worth, maintained it. This basic truth applies to
our American Heritage and the continued welfare of our nation.
Without a solid understanding of the basic principles used by our Founding
Fathers in establishing our constitutional republic – principles used to
craft The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution and
The Bill of Rights – it is sometimes difficult for Americans to recognize
the worth of the American ideal. When the full value of freedom and liberty are not realized it becomes easy to incrementally relinquish
rights guaranteed under the Constitution.
Further, without a basic understanding of the value of our founding
principles and the worth of the American ideal, the American public is less
inclined to be concerned with the unfettered access to un-manipulated,
fact-based information, information needed to address many of the serious
issues facing our nation, our nation’s leaders and the world.
Today, our country faces both a threat from abroad and a
threat, in the form of ideological conflict, from within. While some among
us choose to accentuate the imperfections of our nation, others condemn our
culture or literally champion our nation’s defeat and demise. Those who
choose to diminish the significance of US contributions to the world, do so
in ignorance of the intent of the documents that charted the course for this
great nation and the ideologies and principles that provided the foundation
for the creation of our governmental covenant.
We at BasicsProject.org understand that there is a direct
correlation between understanding the principles, ideology, history and
meaning behind our founding documents – the Charters of Freedom – and the
proclivity to value and advance our American Heritage to the next generation
Liberty Tree was a famous tree; some say oak and others recall
elm, which stood in Boston, near Boston Common, in the days
before the American Revolution.
The tree was a rallying point for the growing resistance,
including the Sons of Liberty, to the rule of England over the
In the years that followed, almost every American town had its
own Liberty Tree, a living symbol of popular support for
individual liberty and resistance to tyranny of any origin.
Today, BasicsProject.org embraces the Liberty Tree, both in
symbol and in spirit, in our efforts to advance our American
Heritage to the next generation and beyond
