Welcome To The First Branch

Welcome citizen! If you have felt the call to duty, that you are compelled to do something to right our ship of state, to return to constitutionally limited government, restore fiscal accountability and responsibility, untangle business from the job killing web of government bureaucracy, end the era of “too big to fail” financial institutions, AND drive a stake through the heart of “crony capitalism” among other pressing concerns, then you have come to the right place!

The “first branch” is exactly that, it is where all government power begins and ends. It is the legislative arm of the citizens, it is where our laws come from, where the government spending and our taxation originates. Every ounce of liberty that we have lost has been as a result of legislation or regulation.   The first branch or Congress is not all powerful, it is the servant of the citizens and is duty bound to the U.S. Constitution and our will. The answer to the question “Who decides?” is simple.  We do!  Provided that we find our voice, speak up and take action.

The First Branch.US is meant to be the citizen driven alter ego of our legislative branches, a mirror of the processes and the politicians so that the people they serve can better direct them. The driving mission of the “First Branch” is to educate the citizens, help them express their views, then promote the legislation that will indeed restore first principles and American exceptionalism.

James Madison wrote in Federalist No. 44: “The success of the usurpation [of power by the Congress] will depend on the executive and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect to the legislative acts; and in the last resort a remedy must be obtained from the people who can, by the election of more faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers.” and there-in lies our challenge, convince our legislators to get it right, or get new ones.

Give the site a test drive, settle in and get comfortable, we tried to make it as intuitive as possible and have included plenty of links to save you time on your journey. It is our hope that it will become your “Political Command and Control Center” in learning about the issues, expressing your opinions, and helping to formulate and pass the legislation that will restore our liberties and return us to the path of limited government, fiscal responsibility, higher achievement, self determination and reliance, unflinching National pride and to exceed all expectations by leaving our Country a better place than we found it, ensuring a bright and secure future for our children and grandchildren, in being the beacon of freedom!

We welcome your suggestions and comment.

Remember only through corrective legislation and regulation can Liberty be restored.

Semper Libertas!
