Why we need the values and principles of the 9/12 Project now more than ever

With all that is going on in the world today, Glenn decided this morning would be a good time to run through the nine principles and 12 values at the core of the 9/12 Project. As the Tea Party has evolved from an anti-taxation movement to a political machine and Washington D.C. has become more and more corrupt, Glenn reiterated the vital importance of holding fast to values and principles.

“We have let go of our principles and our values. We don’t even know what they are anymore. And our civilization is on the brink because our culture is out of whack because we don’t have principles and values,” Glenn said. “And that was the 9/12 Project – the nine principles and the twelve values. What are they? Tea Party, you want to know who you are? You want to know if you stand with me, and if I stand with you, and if you should stand with each other, ask yourself: Do I agree with these nine principles and twelve values?”

The nine 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.

“Those are your nine principles,” Glenn said. “What are the values? Do we have these values anymore?”

The 12 values:


2. Reverence

3. Hope

4. Thrift

5. Humility

6. Charity

7. Sincerity

8. Moderation

9. Hard Work

10. Courage

11. Personal Responsibility

12. Gratitude

“Nine principles, 12 values. I don’t want to hear about your politics anymore. I really don’t,” Glenn concluded. “Because politics will divide us, principles and values bring us together.”

    Many Americans have only one core value; calling 911 when their welfare check is five minutes late.

    • IrishYank2

      Or calling an ambulance when they have a cold.

    Values mean nothing to anyone anymore. Which is sad because with no Principles or values running one’s life people get lost in their own pursuits of money fame or whatever it is they lust for.

    • IrishYank2

      Disagree. There are plenty of people with good values, probably the majority, but there are a lot more people now. And sadly the dumb, careless and clueless ones tend to be reproducing at a much faster rate than those who actually live their lives to some level of decency. Ever seen “Idiocracy”? Well, Mike Judge might be onto something.

  • Crassus

    Just sit in the corner and pray for the Tea Party. They gonna come and save us all.

    • IrishYank2

      Yeah……um…..no. They missed their boat already, particularly when they let the Republicans latch onto them. Wound up diluting the message and pushing them into the fringe.

    Principle #1: America is Good – Even with all the problems we have. It’s time we show the world our love for America.

    We should demand from this corrupt obama administration for equal justice for U.S citizens and not to be made second class citizens to illegals !!!! Now obama create a get out jail free card or revolving doors for violent illegals criminals by having these prisoners transfer to ICE and letting 36,000 illegal violent criminals get immediate release with ICE to commit more violent crimes against U.S citizens ,this revolving doors is repeated many times with the same illegals criminals while U.S citizens who committed similar violent crimes are serving full term !!! If these illegals are release they should at least be deported !! P.S obama before paying out to treated illegals take care of our honorable veterans firsts !!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey obama what your objective with these illegals criminals for them to commit so many more violent crimes in a repeated fashion/ to get very little jail time so they can operate like a Mexican style gangs conducting gangs warfare freely in U.S and pushing of more drugs in our streets !! Then obama can say to us we must declare marshal law for control as a ruse so obama will get his illegal third term as dictator !!!!!!! ????????

    May I ask why the 2nd principle is in there? The US is not a Christian county, the founders left out religion from the Consitution and other documents for a *reason*

    • IrishYank2

      Exactly. Only one I really disagree with. The founding fathers were of European heritage, therefore Christianity was prevalent and dominant only by coincidence, not divine mandate or anything else. They fought the revolution to avoid such church and government intervention, as they were fundamentally one in the same back then. Still are in my book.

      • Jeff Phillips

        If that were the purpose of the revolution then why did some of the original 13 states continue to have state sanctioned religions long after the US Constitution was ratified?

  • Disco Obama

    Glenn, what about a new independent party outside of the Republican party? UKIP is having great success. Why not USIP? We need someone as charismatic as Nigel Farage.

  • Krimsen King

    ok… ‘America is good’.. not a principle… more of a vague, say-nothing statement…also, if you were a perfectly honest person today, how could you be more honest tomorrow… seems glenn assumes we must all have to lie, at least a little, every day.. not so, friend.. also, if this were still a truly representative democracy, you and your spouse WOULD BE the government….. just like the rest of us… good grief…
