Our vision of the world is one shared by American citizens and leaders since we set foot in the Western Hemisphere. John Winthrop, governor of the Massachusetts Bay Company, vowed in 1630 that America would “be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.” Early presidents dreamed of building an American “empire of liberty.” Ever since, our people have sacrificed their treasures and their blood in pursuit of a world order consistent with the demands of natural law and led by the only civilization founded on the “non-negotiable demands of human dignity.” Thus it is our natural obligation to conserve and promote the values of the American Revolution. As conservative defenders of these values, we are dissatisfied that others, who have lost sight of this vision, have self-labeled their own cause as “liberal” and “progressive.” There is no mission more ultimately liberal than the vision of an American empire of liberty. Nor is there a quest more progressive than our constant march through history in pursuit of this happiness.
