Hour 1: OPEN DISCUSSION on Government of the People: Our Role as Citizens
Former Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Robert H. Jackson, said “It is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.” But what exactly does that mean, and what does government of the people, by the people, for the people entail?
As citizens of the United States, we enjoy many rights and freedoms, but along with these rights and freedoms come responsibilities.
As stated on the Center for Constitutional Studies’ website http://www.nccs.net/the-responsibility-of-citizens.php:
- The Framers’ first assumption was that all just authority for government comes from the people, under God; not from a monarch or a governing class, but from the innumerable citizens who make up the public. The people delegate to government only so much power as they think it prudent for government to exercise. Government is the people’s creation, not their master. Thus, if the people are sovereign, it is the citizens’ responsibility to take upon their shoulders the task of seeing that order, justice, and freedom are maintained.
- The Framers’ second assumption was that American citizens would undertake responsibility for the ordinary functioning of the civil social order and that local communities would manage their own affairs. Under their system, the roles of the various levels of government would be minimal and would not unnecessarily intrude into the day-to-day lives of the citizens.
Increasingly, a growing segment of the populace has ceased to feel and perform their responsibilities, preferring instead to put aside their civic duties. On one hand, they recognize the freedoms they enjoy aren’t secure unless they take an active role in self governance and public service, yet, on the other hand, often resist doing so in favor of personal pursuits and interests.
The question needs asked: “What are you doing to help preserve the principles on which this great nation and your personal freedoms are based?”

Hour 2: C. James Jensen
Joining Amerika Now during the second hour is author, executive coach, advisor, and consultant to emerging growth and mid-size companies, C. James Jensen. Jim will discuss his book, 7 Keys to Unlock Your Full Potential.
Would you like to know how to take control over your life and understand the true relationship between the conscious and subconscious areas of the mind? When we take command of our own subconscious beliefs and emotions, we take back creative control over our lives.
Jim will talk about why what you say to others is not nearly as important as what you say to yourself. Your self talk determines your successes and failures, and to improve any area of your life (health, career, relationships, personal achievement), start by changing your self talk.
Jim Jensen began his career as a salesman with Encyclopaedia Brittanica in his senior year of college. He quickly rose to International Sales Manager, and by age 28, became Senior Vice President and CEO of Great Books of the Western World, a division of Encyclopaedia Brittanica. In that same year, Jim and and his wife, Jeri, attended a four-day seminar that would have an incredible impact on his life forever. He became both a voracious student and, ultimately, a teacher of many of the principles written in his book, 7 Keys to Unlock Your Full Potential.
Jim also became President and CEO of two additional highly successful companies. He attributes much of his success of those companies to the management and employees embracing many of the principles taught in his book.
Today, Jim provides executive coaching, consulting, and advisory services to emerging growth and mid-size companies. He’s an active member of the World Presidents’ organization, and serves on the board of directors of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Aspen.
