We Surround Them…

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Glenn is asking that if you generally agree with the above principles than to send a photo of yourself to wesurroundthem@foxnews.com.  More info at Glenn Beck’s site.

  1. Glad to see Glenn made his way over to Fox,where he has more freedom to be who he is. As for what he is doing here, it is great and what we need to energize the citizens to take action of some kind.

    Oh, and I agree with 8 out of 9 principles, and all of the 12 values.

  2. Likewise, though I do think it was nice having him on CNN as a slight counter-balance and because many just write off Fox as being right-wing (like the other’s aren’t left).

    I am glad he is taking action, or rather helping facilitate us taking action.

    I am of the opinion that Glenn Beck is one of the “Refounding Fathers”. Ron Paul being another. Not sure if I’ve found any others….yet.

  3. I agree with all of the principles but #2, but that is just because I’m not religious. And I can get behind 11 of the values; “hope” just seem out of place in that list. How does “hope” contribute to one being a good and moral person?

  4. I love Glenn Beck! Great blog too. Glenn speaks the truth and some may think he’s crazy, but he’s been pretty correct about a lot of things. On Fox now he’s beating all those loser socialists on MSNBC. Wake up America! Stop watching American Idol and pay attention before your country disappears! If we all lived by these principles & values we might not have so much hypocrisy and insanity in our government. Save our Country Now!

  5. “How does “hope” contribute to one being a good and moral person?”

    That’s a very good question. I’ll explain my view point. Hope has a couple of contributing factors IMHO.

    Hope will encourage someone to struggle on far longer than they might without hope. There was a test done with rats to see how long they would swim before drowning. In once case they were rescued and then later placed in a similar situation. The rescued rats continued swimming far longer, because there was a hope of being rescued. If they could just continue on long enough.

    Furthermore, one without hope may, when confronted with what seems overwhelming and unsurvivable odds take action to harm or hurt themselves or others. (ie: You think there is no escape, so you commit suicide and mercy killings on your loved ones.)

    Lastly, people are far more likely to act if they have hope. Many people do not voice their opinions, call their Senators and Congressmen because they do not have any hope that their voice will be heard and listened too. The lack of hope leads to inaction on their part.

    These are just some ways that I view “hope” as a contributing and strengthening factor of a good and moral person.
