Glenn Beck Throws Nationwide Party Celebrating Principles and Values
From the Editors

Glenn Beck, the feisty, likeable, sometimes off-the-wall, Latter-day Saint, talk show host, who is syndicated on the radio every day and appears each weekday night on the Fox News channel, is launching a “We Surround Them” movement on his program that invites Americans everywhere who share the same values and principles in common to step up and have their voices heard.   

He says that in his “fusion of entertainment and enlightenment” show, he represents neither political party, but just the average guy, the Dad, who loves America and is trying to make sense of where this country is going.  To that end, he has invited people to hold gatherings all across the country tonight, Friday, 13 March, during his 5:00 EST program, for people to stake their claim in making a difference in their country.  You can check his website  at Glennbeck.com for gathering locations or watch on television.

He writes:

“Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?

“Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?

“Do you read the headlines everyday and feel an empty pit in your stomach.as if you’re completely alone?

“If so, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides-the reality is very different. Once you pull the curtain away you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.

“We surround them.

“So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Below are nine simple principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common. I urge you to read the instructions at the end for how to help make your voice heard.”

12 Values

  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

You Are Not Alone

So, Glenn Beck says, ” If you agree with at least seven of those principles, then you are not alone. Please send a digital version of your picture to: wesurroundthem@foxnews.com and then stay tuned to the radio and television shows over the coming weeks to see how we intend to pull back the curtain.”
