The PARAGON Foundation provides for education, research and the exchange of ideas in an effort to promote and support Constitutional principles, individual freedoms, private property rights and the continuation of rural customs and culture - all with the intent of celebrating and continuing our Founding Fathers' vision for America.
The PARAGON Foundation, a 501-C(3) not-for-profit organization, was created in 1996 to support the advancement of the fundamental principles articulated by the United States Founding Fathers in both the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution.
This was the vision of PARAGON’s founding father, Tom Linebery, an early leader in the property rights movement and a staunch advocate of ranchers and landowners. A proud American, Tom believed that it was the responsibility of government to protect the rights of fellow Americans, as written in the Constitution. Furthermore, he also believed that it was the responsibility of every American to make sure the government remained true to its purpose. Tom understood that knowledge was power and he sought to arm fellow landowners with the information and negotiating skills necessary to protect their property.
In this same spirit, PARAGON pledges to work diligently to bring individuals and organizations together in the hopes of developing effective tactics and strategies that will assist in disseminating knowledge and information to those who will best benefit.
