European Americans United seeks to preserve and recapture the rights and freedoms of the people who built and founded our nation: European Americans. For far too long, our people and their collective interests have been marginalized and ignored; we have been abandoned by the American political establishment because, unlike every successful, self-conscious group, we have failed to organize ourselves effectively. European Americans United is eager to advocate on the behalf of European American interests, traditions, and values in an increasingly atomized, corrupt, and racially diverse America. Thus always to tyrants
Globalism, which takes many forms, is the main enemy of human diversity and freedom today. Corporations and governments seek to increase their power, and see local laws, traditions and cultures as a hurdle to be overcome. Only by protecting and strengthening these natural differences are all the world's people likely to establish genuine freedom and social justice. In any given nation, cultures and civilizations are the result of the experience of the basic foundational people and their values. In Europe and European-derived nations like America, our people are under the demographic threat of unchecked Third World immigration and the consequent destruction of our unique way of life. As more and more Third World immigrants pour across our borders in America and Europe, they will unquestionably change our traditions, our cultures, and even our forms of government. Our ideals of democracy, individual freedom, and personal responsibility are unique and exist in no other peoples of the world; we wish to preserve these ideals and pass them along to future generations of our European Americans. We recognize that, should our nation ever attain a non-European majority, our ways of life will be forever lost; they will be replaced by the ways of life cherished by the Third World populations who will then control our political process. America’s culture and political system will then, of course, simply reflect its Third World majority—it will begin to resemble Mexico, or Haiti, or Cuba. In European Americans United, we want more for our children and the future generations of our families.
Race: EAU supports self-determination for all races and peoples. We believe that European Americans have a right to decide how they will live, and that an eventual geographic separation is necessary for the preservation of all unique cultures and values. Our fundamental interest is what most benefits European Americans as a people, and the preservation of our genes and our lands is undoubtedly in our best interest.
Economy: Our nation was founded on values twinning personal initiative with mutual co-operation. From the Plymouth Colony to Andrew Jackson's Reforms, to the Homestead Act to the New Deal, Americans have known that we all are better off when we recognize basic standards of social justice. But thanks to globalism, dog-eat-dog economics has resulted in offshoring, outsourcing, the destruction of unions, and the gutting of the US economy. We advocate economic nationalism, which places the economy at the service of the nation; we believe that the welfare of our people should supercede all other things, including the ability of multinational corporations to exploit or ignore our people for unbridled profits.
Environment: For far too long, corporate interests have neglected our environment, while over-reliance on foreign oil has harmed our foreign policy. We call for efforts to balance man's relationship with the natural world; therefore, we work to eliminate pollution and the careless destruction of our natural environment. Likewise, we advocate strenuously for the ethical treatment of animals and the preservation of endangered and threatened species.
Freedom: All across the Western world we see threats to our traditional, hard-won freedoms—especially freedom of speech. Whether on college campuses with political correctness or thanks to the vast spying efforts of the US government, our freedoms are being undermined. We call for a return to the vision of the Founding Fathers: a vision that values the rights of people to dissent. We also value the original Bill of Rights, including man’s inalienable rights to keep and bear arms and to be secure in his home and possessions.
This organization shall be known as European Americans United and will be referenced in this document both by the foregoing name and as the Organization.
The objectives of the Organization shall be as follows:
The objectives of The Organization shall be pursued within a philosophical framework known as the Statement of Principles. Said Statement of Principles is appended hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
Any person eighteen years of age or greater with no physically discernible admixture of non-European ancestry shall be eligible for membership as a volunteer provided that:
The Organization shall have no paid positions or employees so all personnel shall be volunteers.
Volunteer members shall be divided into three classes:
The governing body of The Organization shall be called the Board of Directors or simply “the Board.” The board shall be comprised of activist volunteers whose work to advance the interests of European-Americans is known and has taken place for at least two years.
Whenever the number of board members present for a vote is even and a vote is tied, the members shall draw lots to determine which member's vote shall count twice. This double-vote shall only apply to the instance for which lots were drawn. The drawing of lots shall be accomplished as follows:
The board shall initially be composed of three members, but can have as few as two and as many as five. As long as the board has two or more members, it will appoint new members from the membership as needed by a simple majority vote of the existing board members. If the number of board members should be only one or fewer, then the Chapter Leader Conference will appoint two more members to the board by a simple majority vote as soon as humanly possible.
Except for the first three board members who shall stagger the lengths of their first respective terms to six, twelve and eighteen months by mutual agreement so that continuity of administration is feasible, the term of service of board members shall be 18 months. While the number of terms that a board member may serve is unlimited, no person can serve as a board member for more than two terms in a row without an intervening break of at least six months.
At all meetings of the Board of Directors a majority of the whole Board shall be necessary to constitute a quorum; in the absence of a quorum, the members present can adjourn from day to day or to a future day, but no official business requiring action of the Board can be transacted until a quorum is secured.
Unless specified otherwise, all votes of the Board of Directors shall be decided by simple majority.
The Board of Directors shall meet monthly at a time designated by the Board or more often if the Board votes to do so. Any member of the Board or the Executive Director may call an Emergency meeting of the board.
The Board shall have the following duties, powers and responsibilities along with any other powers, duties and responsibilities not specifically mentioned but necessary to accomplish the provisions of this Constitution:
Appoint and remove Chapter Coordinators and recognize or disband Chapters by a simple majority vote.
Whenever three or more Volunteer Members live within close enough proximity to cooperate on projects, they may apply to the Board of Directors for permission to form a local Chapter of the Organization.
In order to found a Chapter, the At-Large members will provide an application to the Board containing the membership identification of the members of the proposed Chapter, a suitable name for the Chapter, and the membership identification of the member who is proposed to be the Chapter Coordinator. The Board of Directors will review this application and approve or disapprove of the new Chapter, or approve it with conditions on a simple majority vote.
The conditions imposed by the Board may include without limitations the appointment of a Chapter Coordinator other than the one proposed, a revision of the name of the Chapter or the exclusion of a member from the formed Chapter without prejudice.
Upon approval of the Chapter by the Board, the Chapter Coordinator shall appoint an alternate from the Chapter Members who shall serve in his stead in the event of his no longer being a member, incapacity, or any other reason he cannot fulfill the duties of his office. The Chapter Coordinator shall inform the Board of Directors of this choice.
At-large members may become Chapter Members if the Chapter Coordinator allows their membership in the Chapter except as otherwise provided in this Constitution. Chapter Coordinators shall inform the Board of Directors of the change in status of the member by forwarding details of the member's membership identification to the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors may, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice, decommission a Chapter or appoint a new person as a Chapter's coordinator.
The Board of Directors may, at any time and for any reason, with or without notice, appoint a Chapter Member or Chapter Coordinator as either a member of the Board of Directors or as an Administrative Member subject to that member's consent.
If a Chapter Member or Chapter Coordinator has been made a member of the Board of Directors or an Administrative Member, then administrative work shall take priority over Chapter work and the member shall be relieved of Chapter responsibilities if he so chooses and informs the Chapter Coordinator accordingly. This is an option rather than a requirement and would only be made a requirement in a given case by a simple majority vote of the Board of Directors if Chapter responsibilities were compromising administrative tasks.
Chapter members and Chapters as a whole are expected to represent the best that traditional European Americans have to offer, and should groom their appearance, presentation and behavior accordingly.
Chapter members and Chapters as a whole are expected to uphold the Organization's Ethics and Organization's Statement of Principles and Objectives.
While Chapters may undertake projects that advance the Organization's objectives under their own direction, the Board of Directors may, at any time, call a halt to such projects by a simple majority vote.
Chapter Coordinators shall file a monthly summary report of the Chapter's activities over the past month. The summary shall be sufficiently detailed to allow for reporting in the Organization's periodic communications with all Organization members, but sufficiently ambiguous that a person reading the report would be unable to state that any given member was at a precise location at a precise time.
If Chapter Coordinators collect donations from Chapter members to assist with Chapter activities, those funds should be used for Chapter activities. Chapter funds shall not be forwarded to the Organization, the Board of Directors, or any purpose outside the Chapter except with the unanimous approval of all Chapter Members who contributed the funds. Chapter Coordinators shall provide Chapter Members with a full accounting of the fate of their donations at least twice a year.
Chapter Coordinators may delegate responsibility to Chapter Members.
Chapter Coordinators may exclude Chapter Members from the Chapter for any reason at their sole discretion causing the member's membership status to revert to At-Large. The Board of Directors shall not have the power to override such an exclusion exercised by a Chapter Coordinator.
If a Chapter has more than fifteen members, it may adopt a Chapter Board of Directors rather than a Chapter Coordinator and establish its own rules for the selection and composition of the Chapter Board except that members of the Chapter Board may be removed by the Organization Board at any time and for any reason by a simple majority vote.
Any rule in this Constitution applying to Chapter Coordinators will apply equally to both Chapter Boards as a whole and Chapter Board members individually.
The Organization's Board of Directors may promulgate additional rules for Chapters, their formation, and their activities at their discretion, and will make sure that all member volunteers have an updated copy of the rules at least yearly and that Chapter Coordinators are provided with any amendments or additions as soon as possible after their adoption.
The Board may, from time to time, create and disband Special Project Groups and appoint or remove members from those groups. The purpose of Special Project Groups shall be to pursue a particular specialized objective that is outside the scope of normal Chapter activity. Such specialized objectives could include, by way of example but not limitation, editorial review of a news and opinion website, creation of a member handbook, crafting model legislation or creation of educational materials for children.
Member Volunteers assigned to a Special Projects Group are Administrative Members.
If the Board sees fit to appoint a person to coordinate the activities of a Special Projects Group, that person shall be termed the Project Coordinator for that Group and shall provide regular status updates to the Board of Directors or such person as the Board may designate as required, and shall serve at the pleasure of the Board.
To assist communications between the Board of Directors and the member volunteers, a Chapter Leader Conference shall be created as follows:
All Chapter Coordinators, Project Coordinators and all Key Members will be members of the Chapter Leader Conference.
It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors or their Executive Director to inform Key Members of their status in this regard.
Members of the Chapter Leader Conference are responsible to establish an ongoing dialog among themselves and excluding none of the members of the Conference.
Members of the Chapter Leader Conference shall appoint one of their number to the post of Chapter Liaison who shall attend regularly scheduled meetings of the Organization's Board of Directors both to provide insight and ideas from the membership and to communicate the Board's actions to the members of the Chapter Leader Conference; except that Board actions explicitly declared confidential shall not be communicated.
Members of the Chapter Leader Conference will actively maintain bidirectional communication between member volunteers and the Chapter Liaison.
The Chapter Liaison shall not have the right to vote in matters before the Board of Directors unless specifically granted that right for the duration of that meeting by a unanimous vote of the Directors present and the number of Directors present excluding the Chapter Liaison already constituting a quorum.
The European American Organization is an all volunteer organization that requires both the time and financial support of its volunteer members to attain its objectives; as such, volunteer members are required to pay dues annually. The Board of Directors shall establish the amount of dues and inform members of same.
Dues shall be paid annually and are non-refundable and non-pro-rated.
Unless an exception is made by the Board due to either financial hardship or other financial contributions of the member volunteer, each member shall remit dues in full within thirty days of each anniversary of his being accepted as a member volunteer.
Administrative Members and Chapter Coordinators shall not be required to pay dues but may still contribute funds to the Organization if they desire.
Whether funds from the Legal Fund will be disbursed will be considered by the Board of Directors on a case-by-case basis and will require a unanimous vote of the Board of Directors.
The provisions of this Constitution except for this section and (V)(H)(18), may be amended, revised or repealed in whole or in part by two unanimous votes of the Board of Directors taken at least two weeks apart. When such changes are made, they will be reported to all member volunteers as soon as practicable along with the reasons that necessitated the change. Any member who wishes to terminate his or her membership as a result of an amendment to this Constitution may do so without prejudice.
This Constitution is written in traditional American English. As such, references to “he,” “him,” or “his” shall be understood to encompass persons of either sex.
Any references to members or membership as a whole shall be understood to refer to member volunteers.
In cases of ambiguity or confusion as to the meaning or intent of any provisions of this Constitution, clarification will be sought with reference to the Organization's Objectives, Principles and Ethics – in that order.
Any conflicts of authority arising under this Constitution shall be resolved in the same fashion by determining which resolution of the conflict is most in keeping with the Organization's Objectives, Principles and Ethics.
