Our Mission & Vision: “The Shining City Upon a Hill”
The Mission of Revive America USA is revive and advance the Jeffersonian principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness at every level of American government. Independent of any political party, Revive America is fiercely conservative. Our Vision for America to become the “Shining City Upon a Hill”, so eloquently described by President Ronald Reagan in his farewell address to the nation.
“I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still” — President Ronald Reagan, January 11, 1989.
Bob Adams is the founder and president of Revive America USA, Inc., a grassroots membership group representing over 250,000 conservative activists nationwide.
As an entrepreneur, Adams has launched several successful ventures in both the “political world” and the private sector.
In 2012, Adams founded Revive America USA (ReviveUSA.com), and immediately launched an independent-expenditure-campaign backing a ballot recount in support of U.S. Representative Allen West.
In recent months, Revive America USA has led the fight in Congress and among the conservative grassroots in support of the House Select Committee to Investigate Benghazi (H.Res. 36).
The Hill newspaper has credited Revive America with causing a “GOP Rebellion” against House Republican Leaders on Benghazi, who currently oppose the Select Committee.
When Revive America began its campaign, only 48 House Republicans had cosponsored the Select Committee. Six weeks later, after thousands of phone calls from Revive members, and an intensive Capitol Hill lobbying effort, 159 House Republicans had joined as cosponsors.
Adams is also the director of Revive America PAC (RevivePAC.com), an independent-expenditure-only “super PAC”, which supports “bold, strong conservative candidates”.
Previously, he served as the executive director of the League of American Voters, which he founded in 2009 with Dick Morris, the famous political consultant.
Over the course of nearly two decades, Adams has advised and served in senior roles to many conservative groups and candidates, most recently including TheTeaParty.Net, U.S. Senate candidate John Raese, the American Legislative Exchange Council, and National Right to Work.
In 2000, Adams served as the communications director and a senior aide to U.S. Presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan.
He began his political career at the height of the ‘Republican Revolution” of 1994 as a press assistant to Congressman J.C. Watts, Jr.
Bob Adams is an Advisory Board Member of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), one of the ‘Big Four’ historic civil rights groups in America, a Founding Board Member of Birthright of Charlestown, West Virginia, a member of the Advisory Board for the Shepherd University MBA Program, and a member of the Board of Governors for the Council for National Policy. He and his wife Allison, have four children.
As the father of four school-age children, Bob Adams has always had a deep calling to public service. But when Barack Obama got elected, public service took on a whole new meaning for him. With the future of his own children in mind, Adams laid it all on the line – he gave up his job, raided the kids’ the college fund, and risked his family’s financial well-being. He did so to create an organization with the guts to “say” and “do” the things that need to be “said” and “done”.
