Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.
–John Quincy Adams
For conservative people of faith, voting for principle this year means voting for the re-election of George W. Bush. The alternative, in my mind, is simply unthinkable.
To the pro-life, pro-family, pro-traditional marriage, pro-America voters in this nation, we must determine that President Bush is the man with our interests at heart. It is that simple.
The distressing fact regarding this election is, however, that President Bush stands at a political crossroads, with John Kerry ostensibly running neck-and-neck with him in many polls. In addition, Mr. Kerry has raised an astounding $150 million for his campaign.
So the vote of every conservative is imperative. However, simply voting may not be enough. I believe it is the responsibility of every political conservative, every evangelical Christian, every pro-life Catholic, every traditional Jew, every Reagan Democrat and everyone in between to get serious about re-electing President Bush.
That is why I am utilizing this column to urge you to support the Campaign for Working Families, which is headed by Gary Bauer. It is the organization that I believe can have the greatest impact in re-electing Mr. Bush to the Oval Office.
Mr. Bauer recently stated, “John Kerry’s success, not to mention the incessant negativism of the nightly news outlets, is beginning to take its toll. President Bush’s approval ratings are dropping – even on the crucial issues of foreign policy and national security!”
He noted also that radical leftist groups such as MoveOn.org, Emily’s List and the Human Rights Campaign are unremittingly working to defeat President Bush. Furthermore, the left has been facilitated by billionaire George Soros and Hollywood liberals who despise our president.
The fact is there are very few conservative organizations like the Campaign for Working Families that can actually counter the radical left and its agendas of abortion-on-demand, same-sex “marriage” and packing the courts with activist judges who revile the Constitution.
Mr. Bauer recently stated that there is more troubling news on the horizon.
“Weeks ago,” he said, “it seemed we were guaranteed to gain seats in the Senate. Now we’re on the defensive. Our majority in the House once seemed secure, greatly aided by redistricting in Texas. But with two consecutive losses in special elections, the Democrats are raking in money hand-over-fist. Unfortunately, we are not.”
Our action is urgently needed.
I am urging everyone reading this column today to take a moment to send a financial gift to the Campaign for Working Families in order to help in the crucial election of President Bush and conservative political leaders across this nation.
I honestly believe that it is essential that we flood Campaign for Working Families with financial help in order to secure our future. This organization that is on the frontlines on our behalf can accept contributions up to $5,000 per person, but even small gifts are important and quickly add up when we join together.
Please, right now, pick up your phone and call 703-671-8800 or visit the Campaign for Working Families website to make a generous donation by credit card. In addition, may we pray fervently each day for the re-election of George W. Bush at this critical time in our nation’s history.
