The John Birch Society

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages.

One of the hallmarks of a free society is a free exchange of ideas and information. The Internet is a great tool that provides for this. The JBS believes that the First Amendment guarantees Internet users the freedom to freely speak their mind and the Fourth Amendment protects them in doing so anonymously. New technology does not change timeless principles.

The John Birch Society supports regulated, legal immigration and welcomes legal immigrants to assimilate into the American culture by learning the founding principles of freedom, the proper framework of government and the English language. JBS advocates ending government assistance to illegal immigrants and not granting amnesty. It has been shown that when this occurs illegal immigrants often deport themselves.

The John Birch Society supports freedom of choice in healthcare, including keeping medical choices between patients and their doctors. Government intrusion in the free market has done more harm than good, so JBS advocates free market solutions that create healthy competition that in turn drives prices down and quality up.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1801, “I deem the essential principles of our government [to be] peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.” America would do well to heed this advice by abandoning its current role as global policeman and stop meddling in the affairs of other countries.

The powers of Congress are described in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, and the creation of a central bank like the Federal Reserve is not listed as one of those powers. The Federal Reserve is charged with protecting the value of the dollar through managing our nation's monetary policy. However, since its inception in 1913, the dollar has lost 95 percent of its value under the Federal Reserve's monetary oversight. The John Birch Society advocates abolishing the Federal Reserve.

Family plays an essential role in the continuance of this great Republic. The family is the fundamental unit of civilization; it existed before the state, and it is the parents, not the state, who are responsible for the upbringing of children. The family bears responsibility for the education of future generations of civic-minded voters and leaders, creating the moral fiber of this country, and ensuring that America’s heritage is faithfully passed along.

The John Birch Society calls for responsible stewardship of our natural resources. It believes our natural resources should be used to the fullest extent via the free market and that the government should not lead the charge for new markets, nor should it hinder the growth potential of coal, oil, nuclear, and other natural resources found in the U.S.

The Department of Energy was established to help make our country less dependent on foreign sources, particularly oil. Since its establishment, we have doubled our dependency, directly as a result of the department’s policies. In fact, the entire government program that deals with energy is flawed and is making energy sources less available and less useable for an industrial nation. In this site, you will learn how and why.

Next to morality, The John Birch Society believes that education is the most important element of a free society. It is imperative that we see to it that the voice of parents in their children's education remains free and unabridged by government usurping, if liberty is to prosper. For it is only through education can there be a well-informed populous. With the help of God, education is the key to a better world. As Robert Welch, Founder of the John Birch Society, noted, "Education is our total strategy and truth is our only weapon."

The John Birch Society advocates an Austrian brand of economics (free market prevails) as opposed to Keynesian economics (government regulation prevails). It believes that businesses are never too big to fail and campaigns for the return of sound money as found in the Constitution. It also believes that the less government intervenes in the economy, the stronger the economy becomes.
