Who We Are

American MajorityAt American Majority, we believe that change must begin at the local level, through engaged citizens effectively implementing freedom. We believe that individual liberty is achieved through limited government and free markets. We believe in lowering the barrier to entry for citizen participation in our republic. By training candidates and activists to be effective today, we are enhancing America’s tomorrow.

Pamphlets

In tribute to the pamphleteers of the American Revolution, American Majority is once again reviving the art form to educate and inspire a new generation. American Majority will be releasing a new pamphlet each month, with each new volume highlighting an era of American history.

If you have attended one of our trainings then you have likely heard us make the comparison between pamphleteers of the American Revolution and today’s bloggers. Like pamphlets, today’s blogosphere offers Conservative activists and candidates the opportunity to bypass the mainstream media, taking their message directly to the voters. It is in tribute to that connection that American Majority produces these pamphlets.

Communication can be a powerful force when combined with education. With these pamphlets, American Majority hopes to fill the void of education often missing from today’s news and academic outlets. Each volume will be produced monthly and offer a glimpse at American history like you have never seen before.

Printed copies are available upon request, simply email Team@AmericanMajority.org for more information. See below to view the online versions for free.

Why America is Great: Volume 1

The first volume of American Majority’s pamphlet series is entitled, “Why America Is Great: Our Rich Heritage.” In volume 1, we wanted to focus on the principles of freedom and government that influenced our Founding Fathers. Taking a step back into Roman, Greek, and Hebrew society, we analyze founding principles, explaining their importance and why we must educate ourselves on the history that made us great.

Why America is Great: Volume 2

The second volume of American Majority’s pamphlet series is entitled, “Why America Is Great: The Rule of Law.” In volume 2, we discuss the rule of law as it contrasts with the rule of man. We analyze the idea that the king and parliament could not arbitrarily make laws because they themselves were subject to a higher law. Finally, we explore how this battle of ideas helped to spark the American Revolution.

Why America is Great: Volume 3

The third volume of American Majority’s pamphlet series is entitled, “Why America Is Great: The Appeal to Justice.” In volume 3, we discuss the realization that laws were not created by man, but came from a higher power. Thus, the restrictive laws laid upon the colonists sought to restrict their inalienable liberties. Read on to learn more about the philosophical foundation brought forth in the declaration.

Why America is Great: Volume 4

The fourth volume of American Majority’s pamphlet series is entitled, “Why America Is Great: Self-Government.” In volume 4, we take a deeper look at how the practice of self-government – on both an individual level and communal level – laid the foundation for the American republic. For any person or nation that is able to govern itself will have the freedom to flourish.

Because of limited time at each training location, our staff has learned to pack a lot of material into our presentations. This can often leave some attendees wishing they had more time to spent with certain areas of the presentation. To solve that problem, we have posted our most popular presentations below, with more being prepared.

Telling Your Story

The left has been far more effective than the right at appealing to people’s hearts, their emotions, to get them to act. The time has come for conservatives to appeal to the heart and the head, make an emotional connection with people, and motivate them to act.

facebookUPDATED Facebook: A Beginner’s Guide

If Facebook was a country, it would be the 3rd largest in the world.

Needless to say, Facebook is a dominant force in the new way we communicate. American Majority employees can often be seen sharing videos, comments, pictures, and links with friends and past trainees (instead of working). Facebook offers activists and candidates a platform to increase transparency and open lines of communication with citizens from across the country. Activism is no longer bound by geographic location and campaign donations no longer subject to a local email list.

Our Facebook Guide will walk you through setting up a profile and organization’s fan page. We will also discuss ways to increase your fan base, “hack” the content on your page, attach other social networks, and much more.

learn to edit wikisLearn to Edit and Maintain Wikis

Wikis are simply editable websites. One of the most famous wikis is Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that anyone can edit. A study found that although this wikis is open to the public, the information is as accurate as Encyclopedia Britannica. The future of mass collaboration, transparency, and accountability can be found in emerging wikis like Sunshine Review, Ballotpedia, and Judgepedia.

Sites like Sunshine Review empower citizens across the country to share information with each other about their local units of government — cities, counties, school districts, and state agencies. As the country shifts from individual protest to collaborative action, wikis will play a critical role in keeping government accountable and transparent. To help you participate in this new technology and empower your organization, Sunshine Review has produced a set of video tutorials to get you started.
