Frequently Asked Questions
What is the mission of Americans First, Inc.?
Americans First, Inc., is organized to defend, promote and protect the interests of US citizens through its charitable, educational and scientific activities.
Americans First stands for the proposition that the promotion and protection of the interests of US citizens should be the first priority of all levels of government in the United States, and that the influence of foreign, multi-national and international forces harmful to the interests of US citizens must be opposed.
Why is Americans First necessary?
The Constitution of the United States begins:
“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The United States was thus created explicitly for the benefit of its citizens and their posterity. Under our Constitution and democratic republic, only citizens have a right to vote and control the government at all levels . However, citizen control has been severely eroded as foreign, corporate and other non-citizen forces have increasingly exploited our open markets, media, culture and society, and many times corrupted our system, resulting in harm to US citizens.
For example, in recent years foreign and non-citizen interests have hijacked our government to bail out multinational financial institutions, thwart enforcement of existing immigration law and corrupt our voting process. Foreign and non-citizen interests have even commandeered our military to support foreign regimes unfriendly to US citizens. Corporate lobbyists, crony capitalism and corporate welfare are out of control.
Missing from the current political, media and cultural environment is a voice that speaks solely on behalf of US citizens. Americans First intends to be that voice with its approaching to every policy and issue from the perspective of “What is best for US citizens and their posterity?” Americans First is unique in that focus.
Americans First’s mission is not a partisan matter. Promoting and protecting the interests of US citizens and opposing the forces that seek to diminish the value of US citizenship and the sovereignty of our nation is an endeavor that bridges the political spectrum. Americans First will lead the fight to protect and promote the interests of all US citizens – without regard to party affiliation, race, ethnicity or religion.
