Speaking eloquently in his closing argument before the US Supreme Court at the close of the famous slavery trial pitting the United States against the Amistad Africans, John Quincy Adams said: “We have come to understand that who we are is who we were.” Up With America is dedicated to ensuring that an informed citizenry that understands that we are a nation built on Constitutional law, not the whimsy of men or issues along the way.

You can help the cause of ensuring liberty by joining our cause. Just click the gold Get Involved button at the top of any page. There is no charge to join Up With America - we want your ideas, you creativity, your time, your energy and YOUR SMART SOLUTIONS FOR AMERICA. However, there is something that everyone is required to do before you join Up With America begin your journey of helping to restore America to greatness. You have to read and sign The Pledge of Allegiance, including the words "Under God," and then click the box to acknowledge you've read it. You have to read and click the box that indicates you have taken The Oath of Citizenship that is required of every immigrant. So if you were born here, you've probably never taken it and may not even know it exists. Frankly, it's pretty powerful stuff:
"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
Again, if you were born here, you've never had to take that oath. So the question is, could you and would you place your left hand on a Bible and swear to these things? Your country asks very little of you but on these basic things, we can have no disagreement! Once you've read The Pledge and taken The Oath, just fill out the very brief member information form so we know who and where you are and something of your interests. Every day that we grow, there is more for you to do in your home town ... so stay connected.
Of course, it does take money to operate Up With America ("Oh, Brother, here it comes!). So, IF you are able to afford a donation of ANY amount, we would be ever grateful for your help. Frankly, we'd much prefer to have ten million $5 contributions than
five, $10 Million contributions. We believe it's unhealthy to even appear "beholden" to anyone - that's a huge part of what's wrong in Washington! There are other ways you'll soon be able to contribute to the cause: Our Patriot Store will be open for business online soon - with a wonderful array of logo products from baseball caps to mousepads and coffee mugs. And you can rest assured that ALL of our Patriot Store Products are the Real Deal - GAM - Genuine American Made. We're also about to open an online greeting card section so that you can send patriotic messages with your special greetings to friends, family and associates - or send hard-hitting "Smart Solutions" cards to your elected officials.
As a small token of our appreciation, you'll receive your choice of a window decal (above left) or bumper sticker (above right) with your contribution of any amount. We thank you for joining - and most of all, we thank you for your citizenship and patriotism. Together, we're gonna get things right again!
