Guiding Principles

The Center supports policies in line with these principles:

  1. The American government derives authority from the consent of the governed, and its first duty is to provide for the common defense and preserve its citizens’ individual unalienable rights.
  2. International agreements are unacceptable if they infringe on American sovereignty or are contrary to vital U.S. interests.
  3. Peace and prosperity are created through economic, military and strategic strength. Peace is lost when strength disappears or is perceived by an adversary to disappear.
  4. American diplomatic, cultural, moral, political, and all other instruments of national power should be used, wherever practicable, to make the use of military force unnecessary to safeguard this country’s security and freedom.
  5. If force is used, it should be employed swiftly and decisively. American soldiers should not have to fight wars our government is unwilling or unprepared to win.
