9/12 Candidate

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

9/12 Candidates is an American political blog organization (launched on 23 March 2009[1]) made up of only volunteers, publishing news and opinion from a conservative point of view. It functions as a discussion forum and group blog for a variety of netroots activists, whose efforts are primarily directed toward locating and promoting conservative candidates that have committed themselves to a morally binding contract to represent their constituents and uphold the 9 principles and 12 values[2] listed below. These candidates represent the political ideology of the more than 661,000[3] members of the 9/12 Movement. On may May 12, 2009 Glenn Beck became aware of the organization, wishing it luck, and offering to host debates for candidates.

The 9/12 Candidate Contract

A 9/12 Candidate signs a "morally binding" contract that lists a modified version of Glenn Beck's principles and values from his 9/12 Project.[4]

9 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. *

*For the contract this has been reworded from the representatives perspective to read: “ The government works for the people. The people do not answer to the government, the government answers to the people.“

12 Values

  1. Honesty
  2. Reverence
  3. Hope
  4. Thrift
  5. Humility
  6. Charity
  7. Sincerity
  8. Moderation
  9. Hard Work
  10. Courage
  11. Personal Responsibility
  12. Gratitude
