President’s Corner – Thoughts on Voting #1

As we approach our state’s primary election, June 26th, and our
national, state, and local elections on November 6th, I would like to
share some thoughts on cutting through the muddle that the media
Our Declaration of Independence says that all men have certain
inalienable rights given by the Creator – life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness – and it is the duty
of government to protect these rights.
The first and primary
of these rights is life, without which the other

can be deprived of the
right to life, liberty or property without due process of law. Again, the
right is the right to life.

Election of Officers
Our response was that the government did not have the authority to
declare any part of the human family to be non-persons, and that the
duty of these citizens was to disobey unlawful orders.
Our government usurped the Creator’s authority in the same way
when it declared that babies still in their mothers’ wombs are not fully
human; they are non-persons! Thus it is “legal” to murder them.
I suggest that when deciding which candidates to vote for we start
To be qualified to hold office a candidate must understand
these two principles –
…that the primary duty of government is to protect the
inalienable right to life and that no government has the authority
to declare any part of the human family to be non-persons!
If we do not hold candidates to this standard, we are like Germans
in the 1930’s, voting for Hitler because he was good for the economy
and the military. “So Hitler has a problem with the Jews and less-than-
perfect Germans. That’s not as important as the economy and

The Slippery Slope – Abortion – Infanticide – Euthanasia
In the 1970’s after the Roe
court decisions which legalized abortion, there were warnings about
the “slippery slope.” The predictions came frequently that very soon there would be the attack on the people
with disabilities, including newborns, and the move to euthanasia regardless of a patient’s wish to die. In 2012
we are almost at the bottom of that slippery slope.
