“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free”

Thomas Jefferson was right: “It expects what never was, and never will be.”

The people have ignored this timeless truth for far too long. Education on the original, legal meaning of the Constitution – along with founding principles going back to the American Revolution – are virtually non-existent in our government-run schools today.

Abigail Adams understood what needs to be done:

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”

That’s why the work we’re doing is so important. TAC is setting the foundation to act as a counterweight to the relentless propaganda of the government-run schools, and the widespread ignorance the system has created.

Jefferson put it like this: “Knowledge is power, and ignorance is weakness.”

The focus of our work has a special emphasis on building this strength through knowledge of the Founders’ strategy to protect and defend the constitution and liberty – without waiting on the federal government to magically do something it almost never does – limit its own power.

Benjamin Rush summed it up this way: “Freedom can only exist in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights.”

We’ve made some serious headway on this front – but as we celebrate our 18 year anniversary this month, we recognize that we’ve still got a long way to go.

There’s absolutely nothing that helps us roll up our sleeves every single day to reach and teach more and more people – more than the financial faith and support of our members.

With your help, we can continue to push back against the forces that continuously work to destroy the constitution and liberty.

Turning things around from the largest government in history to a real “land of the free” won’t be quick and it won’t be easy. There is no silver bullet. But armed with the knowledge, advice and experience of the founders and old revolutionaries – it’s a battle the people and the states can win in the long run.

As Thomas Paine put it, “The strength and powers of despotism consist wholly in the fear of resisting it.”
