About the American Constitutional Paradigm

Gary & Carolyn Alder

The American Constitutional Paradigm, developed and presented by Gary and Carolyn Alder, continues the quest to discover the Founding Fathers’ Freedom Formula and to understand and apply the Tools of Freedom as structured in the U.S.Constitution. In this in-depth constitutional study – the American Constitutional Paradigm we discuss the basic principles of good government.

The purpose of this website is to educate on freedom. The most valuable tool in establishing and maintaining freedom is the Constitution of the United States.  The paradigm that we reference and discuss is the thinking and perspective of the Founders of this nation and the Framers of the Constitution.  We are more interested in how they thought than the history of what they did. Quotes, paraphrases, and references to the statements of other individuals are used to compare or contrast their views to those of the Founders and Framers.  This website does not promote any political candidate or party.

Our Ultimate Goal

While we hope that this website will be of service in building honorable representatives such as Davy Crockett in   we are more interested in creating the Horatio Bunces that will hold their representatives accountable to the Constitution. That is the only way to re-establish the legacy of freedom given to us by the Founders of the nation and the Framers of the Constitution.
