There may, and we stress may, be a slight correlation between our name and to, well, some other group. The irony was simply irresistible. What better to name a forum designed to discuss conservative principles and values, than to parody a name so steeped in its defense of liberalism. And, thankfully, PECAN also lends itself to a simple acronym, People Envisioning A Conservative American Nation,. Catchy, eh?
The PECAN is symbolic of conservatisms struggle for survival. From an Algonquian word, meaning “a nut requiring a stone to crack”, PECAN is a perfect representation of strong willed individuals determined to honor and support our Constitution and founding principles.
