Our motto. is “POSSUNT QUIA POSSE VIDENTUR”. It means “They Can Because They Think They Can.” And, what do we think we can do?
We can change the culture of Virginia to preserve, protect, evolve, grow, improvise, invent, enhance, respect, honor and project what’s best about Virginia today and in the past – into the future. With confidence, conviction and courage. And, to embrace the inevitable, unexpected changes to shape them for the best in our Virginia culture.
Merriam-Webster defines ‘culture’ as: the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular society, group, place, or time a particular society that has its own beliefs, ways of life, art, etc; a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization (such as a business)
The ‘etc.’ in the first and second definitions is loaded. It includes almost every aspect of a society. Since every culture is based on a society – a group, or groups, of people – in a place and time, culture influences almost everything we think, say and do.
Since culture commands, it matters what the culture of Virginia is today and tomorrow. Especially, when it comes to our beliefs.
We dare to think we can change the culture for the better and for the long term.
Virginia’s culture is built upon two fundamental ideas: The Great Experiment and the Great Commission. The Great Experiment is democracy in America. It’s a government for The People, by the People in a federal Republic. The Great Experiment began with the Virginia General Assembly in 1619. The Great Commission is Christianity in the World. It’s spreading the Good News about Lord Jesus Christ. The Great Commission began with erection of a cross and prayers of thanksgiving at Cape Henry in 1607.
The Great Experiment and the Great Commission create a culture with a profound respect for the Rule of Law. And, strong support for Constitutions – as they are written.
Our Virginia culture, call it the Virginia way of life, is under attack.
Our goals are:
- Shape Virginia as the home of limited-government and Constitutional principles, supported by a strong, Judeo-Christian, conservative culture.
- Adapt to a constantly changing Virginia, while maintaining the culture and our freedoms.
- Lead a revolutionary season of change that will preserve our Commonwealth culturally, fiscally, and economically.
Why? Because Virginia Can!
