The 912 Movement’s Principles. Post 144


912 = 9 Principles, 12 Values

The 9 Principles

1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worthy of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

Coach Mitch’s REFLECTIONS™


Glen Beck’s idea/movement

If you have been reading this blog, you know that I am somewhat political. A representative of the 912 Movement, which is affiliated with the Tea Party movement, addressed the local Republican Party.

Amongst the items spoken about were the ideas that the 912 Movement tries to expound. If you have an interest, you can see how this movement is helping to return US to a thought process that is more originalist in constitutional thought, where the defense of life, liberty, and property is the righteous purpose of our national government; not imposing the centralized egalitarian ideology which has ensconced our government in the last 80 years.

The Principles and Values

The Principles remind me of the Boy Scout oath. It is worth reading. Each time I recited it I felt wholesome, clean, and worthy. The two oaths are certainly similar in theme.

I see nothing wrong with any of the Principles or Values. If you do, then think through your objection. For example:Principle #2. “I believe in G-d.” Even if you are not a believer, I am sure that you can understand the importance of the idea that something must be higher than man.

If man is the highest value, then man is omniscient, and there is no justification for undoing any of the wrong’s that man has legally passed into law. Therefore, a G-dhead must exist, even in concept, so that man can call upon it when objecting to injustice.

For our own safety and freedom, we must maintain some higher authority than man, i.e. government.  This is an extremely important and basic concept.  All objection to perceived governmental wrong starts with the notion of a call to a higher purpose.

  • If you believe that a politician is not adhering to the values listed above, then let them know how you think. Your voice does count.
  • If you find that you agree with 912’s value’s, then consider joining with them to do good works.
  • Listen to the unkind things you hear the media say about 912 and Glen Beck.  Question why the media is uniformly against the 912 value’s.
  • Ask politicians what  they find objectionable about the 912 value’s?  If they do not object to “Honesty” or “Personal Responsibility” then ask why they object to 912?
  • If a politician says that “Charity” is exercised through government, then know that G-d’s call for charity is voluntary.  Government taxes are mandatory.  Taxes are not charity, they are legal plunder.
  • Ask a politician how the large, expensive, overreaching government we have today is any different in substance from what Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “”He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”


1. Determine what you think about the organization for yourself.

2. Compare what you have heard about 912 to what you learn.

3. Wonder what the motives are of those who say things that are not true about 912.

4. Wonder what set of ideas they have if they find the 912 principles and values objectionable.


BTW, the best way to fight for freedom is to become independently wealthy so that you can contribute monies as well as your time, energy, and thoughts to putting America back onto a worthy path. Coach Mitch’s “Ridiculously Simple System…”™ is a good place to start.
