What is 912?
The 912 concept was conceived by Glenn Beck in 2009 while he was the host of The Glenn Beck Program on FoxNews. The concept emanates from the feeling of national unity and solidarity that all Americans had the day after 9-11-2001. All Americans experienced profound grief and shock and they came together instantly to help one another. See the parent site for more details of the national movement.
Why 912 Super Seniors?
We formed to highlight that group of millions of Americans who have already reached that milestone that many others seek to reach. They have valuable experience and a lifetime of lessons share that can help to preserve our nation’s basic freedoms while ensuring individual opportunity. We see sweeping changes taking place in America today. These changes will affect each one of us, our children and our grandchildren. 912 Super Seniors is focused on providing Seniors a stronger voice in these changes by adopting the 912 concept of “Principles not Parties” and the associated 9 principles and 12 values. Many Super Seniors have lived their entire lives based on these tenets. However, we have failed to show how we identify with these using a more public platform. 912 Super Seniors is that platform
Based on the 912 framework, the 912 Super Seniors create a forum to:
1. Educate 912 Super Seniors by asking questions, sharing information and checking facts on issues affecting 912 Super Seniors’ health care, financial security, and the precious legacy of America’s freedoms for which they fought and sacrificed. 2. Empower 912 Super Seniors to recognize the value of our life lessons learned regarding human nature, success/failure, and happiness; then apply those lessons to help ourselves and to educate children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors; 3. Act as each 912 Super Senior chooses, having discussed what other Americans are doing to make a difference. As individuals or as a group, we 912 Super Seniors can use our votes, our voices and our influence to guard our freedoms and to guide our local, state and national communities.
All 912 groups function around the following 9 Principles and 12 Values
- America is a good place, not perfect, but good.
- I believe in God and He is the center of my life.
- I must try to be a better, more honest person than I was yesterday.
- The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority.
- If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
- I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness and not a guarantee of equal results.
- I work hard for what I have. I will share it with whom I choose. Governments cannot “force citizens to be charitable”.
- It is not un-American for me to disagree or to share my personal opinion.
- The elected officials work for me. I do not answer to them. They answer to me.
- Hard Work
- Personal Responsibility
