America is our Mission
Our mission is to help investors help America fulfill her destiny as a beacon of freedom to the world, indeed a “city on a hill,” by providing opportunities to invest in companies that best reflect our fundamental and timeless American values.
Freedom has long been a cornerstone of America. But, as Benjamin Franklin said, “only a virtuous people are capable of freedom”. As private citizens, acting responsibly means less government intervention and more freedom. As early as 1630, John Winthrop spelled out, to his band of early Americans, hungry for freedom, the critical importance of choosing to act responsibly and with good will toward others. His called this “magical” idea a “City on a Hill”.
By intentionally choosing to invest in companies that best reflect America’s foundational, Judeo/Christian values we believe you will be advancing freedom and therefore helping build a better, stronger and brighter America. We believe this to be in the best interest of all Americans, including investors.
For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.
We are one nation under God and God intended us to be free
America Depends on Freedom
America is dependent on the dream of freedom embedded in the hearts of the earliest Americans.
We are, indeed, blessed to still live in an abundance of freedom. Of course there must be some laws to discourage wrongdoing, but most Americans prefer to live where there are less restrictions and more freedom.
But freedom is fragile and it is incumbent upon every American to guard, defend and advance this precious gift because, as Ronald Reagan also said, “Freedom is only one generation away from extinction”.
Freedom Depends on our Values
Freedom depends on values
If Ben Franklin was correct by saying, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom,” then promoting and living the right values are critical to freedom. The more we are self-governed, and do the right thing on our own, the fewer laws will be needed to keep us in line. If pressed most of us would say our values are more important than our fnancial condition. Calvin Coolidge said it well, “The danger to America is not in the direction of the failure to maintain its economic position, but in the direction of the failure to maintain its ideals.”
Let me add, that only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.
The Challenge: To Prioritize our Values
Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.
Do we have the courage to trust our future to our values by prioritizing them before financial gain?
Do we really believe that values like diligence, humility, honesty, caring, service, and courage will prevail in the marketplace or do companies have to laser focus on profits? The challenge is real. There are risks. There are no guarantees. Honesty, compassion, and courage are all values that can be taken advantage of in our own lives and in business. In the end, do we really believe good is going to win over evil? Do we believe companies that strive for these values will succeed?
The courage to meet this challenge must ultimately come from outside ourselves as suggested by our national motto. The good news is that courage to advance freedom has never been lacking in America.
Who Should Invest?
A message from our founder and CEO
Our strategy is designed for patriotic Americans who understand the value of freedom and the importance of the Timeless values that helped create it and are needed to preserve it. Although we think our strategy has good potential for financial gain, our primary goal is not creating wealth for investors but the preservation of freedom for America. Our strategy may not be suitable for every American, but we believe it is in the best interest of every American.
Fifty-six men signed the Declaration of Independence and were willing to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to create as, Ronald Reagan described it, a “shining city on a hill”. We believe there are multitudes of Americans who would do the same thing today. If this describes you, no matter how large or small an investor you may be, it would be our distinct privilege to serve you.
