The Proud Majority is offering a series of White Papers designed for interactive discussions called Learning Circles. This approach enhances people’s ability to gain a deeper understanding of the complex issues facing America. We encourage you to download and utilize these papers to help touch hearts and minds and restore America’s core values.  

Each collection contains a series of White Papers that deal with specific concepts of American life. While Americans generally support these concepts, they have drastically different perceptions of what they mean. Each paper provides the definition and background of that concept or challenge. They then identify the differing beliefs, including the history and philosophy, that cause today’s political debate and conflict.  Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each belief helps to reduce the conflict and achieve an optimal balance. Armed with this knowledge, we will better understand our differences, find more common ground, and strive to find better solutions to America’s challenges.

The Federalist Papers for the 21st Century

This collection of papers follows the model of the original Federalist papers, written in New York in late 1787 and early 1788, as newspaper articles and later published under the title, The Federalist.   The original Federalist was a long argument in the late 18th century for the support of the new form of government going forward.  Like the original Federalist, our papers are intended to explain and defend the American Constitution.   They were created for many audiences, but especially the people who are skeptical of the relevance of the Constitution’s underlying principles to today’s modern world.

The Proud Majority Speaks Out

This series focuses on the challenges confronting America today. While our enemies are getting stronger, we are highly polarized and experiencing a slow but steady drift away from the principles that made us great. Instead of being proud of what our ancestors accomplished and following in their footsteps, many Americans feel entitled and are squandering the prosperity we accumulated. Unless we deal with these issues, the future of our children and grand-children will be in danger.

The Conservative Resources

Our Conservative Resources, is a tool that identifies the conservative organizations, publications, and books that share our core values and specialize in specific aspects of American culture.  Included is a cross reference that identifies organizations that best align with your interests. Many of these organizations offer free virtual meetings with great speakers.  Please get involved and help to restore America’s core values and greatness.
