Defending Your Freedom, Mobility and Affordable Homeownership
Most people define the American dream as owning their own home and having the mobility to get where they want to go, when they want to go there. We believe this is an ideal worth defending. But the American Dream is under attack! The Smart Growth/Sustainable Development agenda imposes command-and-control policies at the local level that will restrict mobility and make housing unaffordable. Our mission is to support citizens and organizations that support the American Dream. Free people deserve government at all levels that promotes markets, not mandates. Our website is an abundant source of information that you are welcome to explore and share with others.

For most Americans, a home with a yard and an automobile to get them where they want to go is how they define the American Dream. We believe this is an ideal worth defending.
