AO's Latest Projects: COVID-19, Tax Reform & Economic Growth, Saving the Electoral College, & Promoting Election Integrity!
Conservative solutions to rebuild our infrastructure and make common sense reforms
Do you understand what the Electoral College is? Or how it works? Or why America uses it to elect its presidents instead of just using a straight popular vote? Author, lawyer and Electoral College expert Tara Ross does, and she explains that to understand the Electoral College is to understand American democracy.
The Free Congress Foundation is now the American Opportunity Foundation and its members believe that the American economy has been the engine driving both freedom and prosperity in the world since 1945. We firmly believe that American prosperity must exist so that our national security can protect our country.
During this time of COVID-19 and the disruption to daily life as the world knows it....American Opportunity is concerned about our election process. If you will be voting in-person at your polling place, please review the CDC's Recommendations on Protecting Yourself and Your Family.

American Opportunity supports the preservation of the Electoral College......The US Electoral College guarantees a president with legitimate majority support and a broad base. Without the US Electoral College, would the major parties just compete for different urban areas?........The US system is a federation of states. It is right that state-by-state majorities elect the president..........Election Security: Paper Ballots and Audits are the most widely discussed idea in election security, but it really does very little for cybersecurity. Humans can use paper ballots to do an audit that will detect – and correct – vote-counting equipment problems that otherwise would have the worst possible effect: a “winner” that did not actually get the most votes.
We are also focused on two goals: First, the recreation of a robust American economy. This will result in the rapid creation of jobs, far faster than job losses, propelled by the reform of business-stifling regulations and tax laws. We believe that economic opportunity can be encouraged, even “hot housed,” so that growth will offer more career and job opportunities for more Americans, higher wages and the creation of more wealth.
Second, the American Opportunity Foundation is focused on developing and advocating a new approach to American foreign policy that rejects unwise military intervention that is not designed to protect or achieve vital national security interests.
