We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.



With this short statement, the participants of the Constitutional Convention proceeded to outline what powers and limitations the federal government would be given. This was carefully constructed in seven Articles, with ten Amendments to follow shortly thereafter. The Founders saw a need to restrain government - and for good reason. They knew the havoc a large, out-of-control government could cause because they experienced it firsthand - and they read their history. They were determined not to make the same mistakes of the past.

Today, the Constitution is all but ignored. The federal government is taking over every aspect of business and the free market. The Supreme Court is legislating from the bench. The states, who formed the government in the first place, are now held hostage to federal monies that will be denied them should they not conform. The people are frightened of their government, instead of the other way around, as the Founding Fathers originally intended. Our founding principles have been turned on their head and the Founders are surely spinning in their graves.

ACON (American Community Organizational Network) has been formed to gather like-minded, motivated individuals, to organize a response to the attack on our Constitution. We are the antithesis of groups like ACORN and the ACLU. We hold a conservative/libertarian/constitutionalist view of our great country. Join us in building a consensus to get those elected to office who best reflect these views.

Founding Members: Tom Pratt, Darrin Johnson, Ken Thomas, Melissa Trezza
