Welcome to Power In Numbers!
As some of you may know on Friday, March 13th, 2009, Glenn Beck of Fox News launched an initiative called “The 912 Project” which inspired me to launch this web site. Before I tell you about the purpose of this web site, let me first give you my take on The 912 Project.
As many may think, The 912 Project has nothing to do with Bush & Obama, Democrats & Republicans, Gay or not Gay, Liberal vs. Conservatives, and the list goes on. It's about "WE THE PEOPLE" and no one else.
The 912 Project was inspired by a person, who at one time in his own life, hit rock bottom. But instead of dwelling on how he got there, Glenn Beck took responsibility for his actions and made changes in his own life to be where he is today. With support from those closest to him, Glenn has risen to the top of his profession. He's no “American Idol”, thank God. Instead, he is an American Icon.
The fact is Washington, and I mean all of Washington has let us down over the past twenty years and as Americans, it's time to take back our Government and the Constitution they took an oath to defend. The problems we face today don't stem from greed or corruption. These negative traits are the results, not the cause. If you take a step back, and I mean “way back” you will see that that every problem we face today in both our society and Washington, stems from the the simple fact that we've forgot about who we are as Americans. Many of us have strayed from the values and principles that were instilled in our greatest generation. The same values and principles that guided them to make good decisions in their life to improve ours. WE THE PEOPLE and our ELECTED OFFICIALS need to get back to "what's the right thing to do" instead of "what's in it for me" and until this happens, it's hard to imagine "REAL CHANGE" for the better.
As it stands today, we're not electing those who reflect the values and principles that most good Americans try to live by. Instead, we elect Hollywood actors, Comedians and Rock Stars who don't know the first thing about the Constitution or those who have died to protect it. We have no one else to blame but ourselves for the mess we're in today. Until we all accept this fact and stop blaming someone else, we have no prayer of ever changing things. In 2010, we must cast our votes for individuals who truly represent our values and principles and not those who entertain us or those who spend a small fortune on hair cuts and clothes to look good on TV.
We can disagree and debate on policies and what is best for "We The People" but if you're a “true” American, it's tough not to agree with all or most of the 9 Principles and 12 Values defined in The 912 Project.
BTW - Do you know why Glenn calls it The 912 Project? Sure, 9 Principles and 12 values but the less obvious reason is Glenn is hoping for a renewal in our attitudes. Glenn is hoping for all of us to unite the same way we united on September 12, 2001. Remember, that day? No one was talking about religion, sexual preference, or what political party you supported. That day, we were Americans who displayed a deep concern for our Country and our fellow Americans! This is what the World saw and they need to see it again, driven not by tragedy, but rather, by unity. Those 9 Principles and 12 Values are who we are 24/7.
