I am an americanist! What is that? An americanist is a person that espouses the primary foundations that started the republic known as the United States of America. These core principles are stated in the beginning of the Declaration of Independence. Americanism is virtually unique in all of history if not actually so! If you believe that you have a right to life, liberty and property whether government exists or not, then you have the basic outlook of an americanist. All our rights are endowed at birth by our very essence. We and our lives are not a product of government. Perhaps they are granted by our Creator, Divine Providence or just by nature itself but surely not granted by any creation of man, such as government. The same rights are held by each person. On one has any more or less than any other. Since man created government for certain purposes it can only be given powers that we also hold as individuals. Such as defense. Powers given must be held by the individual before government can be empowered to take action. The right of self defense, ownership and use of our earned property, our natural right to talk, write and assemble free from force and controls. If you agree, you may be an americanist too!
