A message from the President, Brigitte Gabriel
Welcome to ACT for America Education! ACT is the only grassroots organization dedicated to national security. We have over 875 chapters across the country and 279,000 members! Together we can protect our country. Together we can fight for the values that have produced opportunity, prosperity, peace and liberty wherever those values are practiced.
September 11th was a wake-up call for America. For me, it was reliving a nightmare.
I grew up in Lebanon when Islamic militants, in league with Palestinian followers of Yasser Arafat, tore our beautiful country apart.
As a result, from ages 10 to 17 I lived in a bomb shelter beneath my family’s bombed out home.
I know what terror is. I have lived through it. And after 9/11, I made a promise to myself that I would do whatever I could to ensure that the same terror would not destroy my adopted country, America, like it did the country of my birth.
The issues facing our country are numerous and ACT!’s 279,000 members are working to protect our country no matter what the threat is. Iran, border security, Middle East policy, missile defense, our military readiness and energy independence are all important issues that cannot be ignored.
This is why I founded ACT! for America Education (formerly American Congress for Truth) in 2002.
It didn’t take me long to realize that America is not only threatened by multiple national security threats, but we are also hindered by a festering political correctness that is unwilling or unable to identify and define the threats we face.
If we are not able to successfully protect our national security other issues won’t matter at all:
- We won’t have an economy to worry about.
- We won’t have equal rights for all.
- We won’t have our cherished democratic freedoms.
It seems these days that plots are being discovered almost monthly that threaten our way of life. The video below is a 7 minute conversation where representatives of both the Republican and Democratic parties agree that we as a country are no safer now than we were several years ago. This is absolutely unacceptable knowing what happened to our great country on 9/11.
Americans- and freedom-loving people everywhere- must awaken to the threats to our national security, which may well be the greatest existential threat to safety and liberty of the 21st century.
America must stand up, protect our country and the freedom that we all love. This begins with knowledge. As you become more informed, find out how you can take action by visiting this site often for updated information. Get involved. ACT! for America is the only grassroots organization dedicated to national security. We have over 875 chapters across the country and 279,000 members! It’s easy to join a chapter near you, or start a new chapter.
Together we can protect our country. Together we can fight for the values that have produced opportunity, prosperity, peace and liberty wherever those values are practiced.
I especially thank you for helping me protect the country that has blessed me so much –America, the dream that became my address.
