|What is the Patriot Circle?
The Patriot Circle is a pan-partisan grassroots organization of
the American People with both social and political aims; a vehicle
in which to organize a critical mass of Americans to deliver
successful campaigns for the causes that we, together, define on
the basis of our common interests.
To restore to these United
States of America a Constitutional Republic of the People, by
the People, and for the People; prosperous, powerful, and
peaceful, with liberty and justice for all.
Using models proven successful, we intend to unwind the acts of treason that have enslaved us to
the money powers, fed corporate greed and special interest agendas, and
created an abusive control system
that uses deceit, terror and intimidation to compel our cooperation.
We face a systemic crisis created by the abuses of influence (money) on
our political institutions and elected
representatives that have turned our once-proud and
prosperous democracy into a corrupt and decaying
plutocracy - a government by and for the wealthy.
This has happened through party politics that divide us to rule. We have
been sold on the ideas of the politics of special
interest and divided against each other. Every time
we support "our" party we support their interests
and weaken our own.
We must stop playing this losing game and learn a new
politics of common
interest that is cooperative, collaborative, and

created it.” --Albert Einstein.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a
different result.” --Unknown genius.
We deserve to live by an innocent reading of the Charters of
Freedom, by the story that proclaims us one Nation, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all, in the land of the free and
the home of the brave.
So we set ourselves a new and different course, one based on
healing the divides within us and between us that we may act
together to preserve our nation and its once-beautiful dreams.

America”, "United States" or "US" is one Nation (indivisible)

authority to make and pass laws, administer such laws,
