We Can Make This Happen

The Twelve Points are a statement of conservative principles, objectives, philosophy, and additional guiding considerations, composed by Karl Born, a young Indianapolis writer and attorney, beginning in early 2008, completed on July 2, 2009.

The purpose of the Twelve Points is to serve as a delivery mechanism for distilled, concentrated conservative thinking, with the goal of returning clarity and completeness to popular conservatism, and spreading knowledge of the true principles of conservatism throughout the conservative community.

The idea for the Twelve Points, along with much of the content of the document itself, came from the "Seven Points," which was created by a group of conservative college students in 2003 at Indiana University: Grand Old Cause.

Even in light of the 2010 election results, the conservative movement has become confused and aimless. Certain essential conservative principles and considerations have faded from memory and lost their influence. The Twelve Points will help to solve this problem by reminding us of conservative thinking that we may not have considered recently, and by making that thinking available to new, developing conservatives.

We can make this happen

Decisive conservative support for the Twelve Points would establish that genuine conservatism is still the dominant philosophy of this movement.

It would further demonstrate that this conservative support is for well-defined ideas, which we expect our representatives to understand, implement, and keep. This conservative support, we will establish, is not just for a list of slogans, keywords, vague themes.

We will remind our representatives -- and ourselves -- that exciting slogans are no substitute for genuine, robust, substantive conservatism.

We can make this happen.
