Welcome to PAConline, the official website of the Policy Analysis Center, a Washington-based think tank dedicated to exposing the worst abuses of the federal government along with our recommendations for policy changes that can restore America to her former, Constitutionally-based structure which will preserve this great nation for another two hundred years.

Looking for the radical Left or the extreme Right?  Sorry, not here.  We believe, like John Adams, that the only salvation for the United States of America lies not in the political extremes, but in the center where common sense prevails.

Second President John Adams said, “There is nothing I dread so much as a division of the Republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader and converting measures in opposition to each other.”

Our country is more polarized today than ever before.  Sensible solutions to our nation’s problems are routinely ignored or drowned out by the braying jackasses, left and right, who use fear and wildly distorted facts to support their positions.  The result is that America is now frozen in a permanent state of gridlock where nothing can be resolved.

This blogsite offers you an opportunity to express your views, not just to the government, but to your fellow citizens.  We don’t have all the answers.   No one individual or group has all the answers.   But, collectively, the American people generally know what’s best and our job is to provide you and other concerned citizens with a platform and the opportunity to offer your solutions to our elected representatives who, if they are doing their job properly, will pay attention to your ideas.

Our primary and underlying goal in all things is Defending Liberty by Restoring the Rule of Law.  Without the rule of law, America is quickly disintegrating down to the loudest voices or the mob in the street.  And once we get there, it will be too late for talking.

There’s still time to save our country!  If you want to help, all you have to do is follow us on Twitter, Facebook, this blog and use our site to let your voice be heard.  Together, we can change public policy; bring fresh thinking to that bureaucratic wasteland we call our nation’s Capital; and give hope to the next generation of Americans .

Thanks for the visit.  Please come back often.
