The Foundation to  Promote Personal Responsibility is a national, non-partisan, grassroots  organization, whose objective is to support the return of our country’s traditional values of self-reliance, self-determination, self-actualization, and social responsibility.

Our primary agenda  item is to put America on a better fiscal path – – to eliminate the curse of  constant deficit spending and it’s potentially  devastating effects on future generations – our children and grandchildren.   We have provided a link to the US debt clock, which showed that in October 2013, the amount of US government debt per person (including minor children and retirees receiving Social Security) was in excess of $53,000 per person (and rising).  The following link is to the live US debt clock, which shows how much this amount has risen since October 2013.


We believe that it is  immoral to push our country’s current issues, problems, and debt onto future  generations. Our governmental units  need to “live within their means”, just the same as any business  (large or small) or any individual, or any family. Our agenda is to  promote policies that will enable the U.S. government to eliminate deficit  spending and then begin paying off the  country’s incurred indebtedness over a reasonable period of time. Our Foundation fully  supports the work of The Campaign to Fix the Debt. We have included a  link on this page to The Campaign’s website. We encourage you to visit their website for additional information, and then join with our  Foundation’s Editorial Board Members in digitally signing the  Citizen’s Petition to Fix the Debt.

The Campaign to Fix Debt

Our Foundation’s  overriding philosophy is anchored to the guiding principles outlined in the  Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. We have provided a  link on this page to the text of the Declaration of Independence. We encourage you to  re-read the full text, to refresh your memory of this Declaration, which in  many ways is as pertinent today,  as it was in 1776. To  paraphrase…. The Declaration states that all people have certain unalienable rights, which include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  It also states that governments are instituted by its citizens, and a government derives its powers from the consent of the governed. However, when the  government itself becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right (and  responsibility) of the people to alter  it, in order to maximize their personal safety and happiness

The Declaration of Independence

Our Editorial Board  also subscribes to the wisdom put forth by a number of influential thought leaders, including those from  the past, and in our Conversation Pieces, we will provide links to other works  that will help our Foundation’s  membership appreciate how we can apply that wisdom in addressing our country’s issues.

Our Foundation’s  agenda also includes putting forth recommendations regarding Government  Spending, Tax Reform, Federal  tax reduction, and Term Limits.  We support evolutionary change – – it took us a long time to get to the “current state”, and it will take a period of time to move to a better “desired state”.

Our Foundation’s goals  are to support changes that maximize personal freedom and prosperity, balanced with each individual’s  personal responsibility to themselves, and to their family and fellow  citizens.
