Who We Are
Who We Are and What We Do…
Founders Keep is a group that meets to discuss and read the founding documents and other readings. The goal is to become informed and to educate ourselves as to the goals and vision of the Founders. It is both fun and educational. It is important to learn the function and workings of our government as the founders envisioned and to pass that knowledge on to the next generation. In addition, we reach out to the community through school programs and events to foster an interest and understanding of our history and the founding documents.
Founders Keep Statement of Purpose
Founders Keep was started to bring the stories of our founding to life once again and to fill the void left by the revisionist history system. For years our unique and colorful history has been “dumbed down” and altered to fit a broad sweeping agenda to remove the valor, honor, and exceptionalism of our country. Our Founders knew as long as the true stories of our history were passed down from generation to generation tyranny could not prevail, but if we do not learn and pass that knowledge to the next generation, it will be lost forever. Our great nation was founded on the principles of Judeo-Christian beliefs to foster the foundations of virtue. We believe that Liberty is freedom plus morality. Samuel Adams wrote; “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt”. Our only purpose is to learn, teach others, and pass on to the next generation the incredible history we inherited from our forefathers. Liberty is a gift we pay forward. Thomas Jefferson wrote; “Those who expect to be both ignorant and free, expect what never was and never will be.” One person can make a difference and when we ban together we can change the course of history like our fathers before us. Tyranny cannot stand when good people speak up!
The mission of the Founders Keep organization is to inform and educate individuals and groups of all ages as to the principles and vision of the Founding Fathers and the documents they created in the formation of the United States of America; to foster an interest and understanding of the fundamental foundations of Liberty; To encourage the reading, exploration, examination, and application of the principles within those documents; to become knowledgeable of the basic rights and function of our government; and to rekindle an affection, patriotism and respect for their nation by providing educational material, instruction and direction.
