Far left liberals will soon control all branches of the federal government, including our Armed Forces, Department of Justice, Education Department, Homeland Security, Energy Department and other key branches of government. Louis P Sheldon
The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, a Democrat-controlled Senate and House, and a energized leftwing movement in our country will pose significant threats to traditional values and our lobbying efforts in Washington, DC.
Far left liberals will soon control all branches of the federal government, including our Armed Forces, Department of Justice, Education Department, Homeland Security, Energy Department and other key branches of government.
This control, however, is not indefinite and those of us who value conservative political principles and religious liberty, must work far more aggressively than in the past to make certain the Obama Administration fails in its leftist efforts to remake our nation.
This means that our lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill on behalf of churches and traditional values voters will be accelerated â€“ and weâ€™re going to need your help more than ever to hold back the onslaught of bad legislation and bad policy decisions that will flow out of the House, Senate, and Executive Branch.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has wasted no time in overturning fairness rules in Congress instituted by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich in the mid-1990s. Pelosi is rewriting rules that will ensure that Republicans can have no influence on legislation.
Her plan is to bar Republicans from offering any alternative bills, amendments to Democrat bills or guarantee open debate with motions to recommit legislation during the entire 111th Congress.
House Republican leaders have sent a letter of concern to Speaker Pelosi asking that she reconsider her plan to abolish the fairness policy for the minority party. It says in part: â€œMadame Speaker, we urge you to reconsider the decision to repeal these reforms, which could come up for a vote as early as tomorrow. Just as a new year brings fresh feelings of optimism and renewal for the American people, so too should a new Congress. Changing the House rules in the manner highlighted by recent media reports would have the opposite effect: further breaching the trust between our nationâ€™s elected representatives and the men and women who send them to Washington to serve their interests and protect their freedom.â€
The far left will be a formidable enemy during the next four years in Washington, DC, but I can assure you that TVC â€“ with your prayers â€“ will do whatever we can to minimize the damage that liberals will do to our economy, our religious freedom, our military, our national security and our system of justice.
We will faithfully fight to block liberal efforts to undermine our liberties in 2009 and 2010 â€“ and work for the victory of conservatism in the House and Senate.
It is my personal goal in 2009 to reach out to conservative Democrats to encourage them to support traditional values in legislation and policy decisions. Conservatives in both parties have common foes: secular liberalism and the rise of Islam in America. We must work together to minimize the destruction that liberalism will bring to our nation during the next four years under the rule of a radical leftist who masqueraded as an agent of change for America
I am hopeful that God will answer our prayers and honor our efforts to hold back the night during the next four years of liberalism run amuck. We will be faithful to the calling that God has given us â€“ and we ask you to join us this year in being part of a traditional values army that will work with us to preserve justice, to defend life, and to continue fighting against the spread of Islam and the dangerous homosexual agenda in America.
God bless you for all you have done with us â€“ and all that you will do in 2009 through 2012.
