David Ripley: America is Pro-Life

May 25th, 2011 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Despite the imposition of an immoral abortion regime by a ruling elite, the American People remain committed to pro-Life values. According to a fresh Gallup Survey, 61% of adults believe that abortion should be illegal in most or all circumstances.
Furthermore, most Americans believe that abortion is morally wrong. Just 39% believe the killing of an innocent baby in the womb is “morally acceptable”. Interestingly, just as many women as men agree with on that value judgment.
Here is a link to the Gallup Report.

David Ripley: It is Good to Be Nancy’s Friend

May 18th, 2011 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The media reports that a slew of San Francisco businesses received special relief from the burdens of ObamaCare. Clearly it is good to be Nancy Pelosi’s friend.
Of the 204 new “waivers” granted by the Obama Administration last month, 38 are for nightclubs, swanky restaurants and hotels in Nancy’s district. Given Pelosi’s penchant for the privileged life, it is easy to imagine that she traded guaranteed seating for a little influence with her pal, Kathleen Sebelius.

But that is all vanity and petty corruption.

What should be obvious here is that we are witnessing another element of why ObamaCare is so dangerous for the nation and the cause of liberty. Buried in the thousands of pages of this law are heretofore unknown powers delegated to bureaucrats to dispense favors, like medieval barons with the power to terrorize or lift burdens. This is dangerous. This is not America.

The monumental achievement of the Founding Fathers was to place all men under the rule of law – written law. Rich, poor, bright, dumb or powerful: All would be subject to the written constraints and protections of the Constitution. The immense and arbitrary powers granted an unelected bureaucracy sorely undermines those historic principles and jeopardizes the liberties of every American.

Let us continue to pray for relief from this whole mad scheme.

David Ripley: Radical Pro-Abort Governor Rules in Montana

May 16th, 2011 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Abortion advocate Brian Schweitzer has issued his second pro-abortion veto of the session by throwing out a law which would have required parental notification before a girl can get an abortion.

News reports indicate that pro-Lifers in our neighboring state may be working to put the measure on the ballot.

In tossing the effort to protect families and parental rights, Schweitzer cited a Montana Supreme Court decision from 1999 which vitiated most of the pro-Life laws on the books. Their high court found that Montana’s Constitution has a separate “right to abortion” under its privacy clause.

Last week, Schweitzer vetoed a bill to protect preborn children who were the victims of violence. It is similar to Idaho’s Noah’s Law – which makes it a felony to injure or murder a preborn child outside of an abortion context. In his veto message, Schweitzer claimed that the Unborn Victims legislation was merely a political ploy designed to undermine legalized abortion by suggesting that babies in the womb were human beings deserving of legal protection.

Andi Elliott: A Shameful President

May 12th, 2011 by Halli

My sister and I grew up reading US News and World Report. When I was twelve, my father ran for the Virginia House of Delegates. On election day, as my parents were busy campaigning at various precincts, they ran by the house to drop off a kitten that someone had thrown out at a polling place. (We named him “Politic”.) My children were involved in local and Congressional political campaigns and my son’s picture hung in the governor’s office. Now, as one of the leaders in the Tea Party movement, let me relate why I have so many questions about this President.

Never have I seen a president be ashamed of my country and conduct a “worldwide apology tour”… have you?

Obama has been named as one of the top ten “most corrupt politicians” for two years running by Judicial Watch…a nonpartisan group that scrutinizes candidates in both political parties. Did you know this?

Regarding the “birth certificate” issue…doesn’t it make you wonder why Obama has spent over two million dollars keeping his records sealed and this according to Democratic National Committee records?

Has any president spent so much time on the golf course and “partying” and allowed our country to be governed by political appointees that rule outside the purview of Congress?

For those of you who by now are calling me a “racist” (like who cares), don’t you just love how LTC Allen West and Herman Cain (both black men) are calling Obama out? Boy, I sure do!
