Texas Rep. Ron Paul won a straw poll at the Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit on October 8, receiving 37 percent of the vote at the social conservative convention. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins downplayed the results some, saying that 600 people registered Saturday morning left after Paul spoke. “I think people are still in the process of deciding where they want to go,” Perkins told reporters. Herman Cain took 23 percent and former Sen. Rick Santorum took 16 percent. Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann won 8 percent while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney received 4 percent of the vote.

In his speech, Paul emphasized personal responsibility, using the example of Jesus’ response to prostitution. “He didn’t call for more laws. But he was very direct and thought that stoning was not the solution to the problem of prostitution,” he told the crowd. “So do laws take care of these things, or do we need a better understanding of our Christian values and our moral principles?” In an interview withChristianity Today following his speech, Paul explained why he doesn’t think the government can create morality.

Where are the champions on these issues – melt the phones and tell us about the calls!

_________________________________________________________________

Defeat S. 909 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Bill

Status: Currently in the Senate, this bill could come up for a vote as early as TODAY.

As reported on the Boston.com site, this hate crimes legislation has now been attached to a Defense spending bill that is currently on the Senate floor.

There are many problems with “hate crimes” legislation, including that violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by providing special protections to some citizens it does not afford to others. It further violates the First Amendment by suppressing speech and religion.

On the Truth Tellers site, there is a video featuring testimony of Attorney General Eric Holder admitting that the bill doesn’t provide equal protection for all.

Defeat Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Status: Currently in Senate Judiciary Com and will pass out of committee easily. This should be a target vote and we should ask all constitutionalists R’s and D’s and I’s to oppose this confirmation based on:

1) right to keep and bear arms

2) private property and the respect thereof

3) prolife core issue

4) ethical standing before the committee

5) judicial temperment

For more information, visit the Gun Owners of America site

Defeat of Pass Act

Status: Currently in Senate.

For more information on this bill visit the following sites:

Stop Real ID Coalition

OK-Safe, read the July 2 posting

Defeat of Socialized Medicine

Status: Currently being proposed by Obama Administration, moved out of the Senate Health Committee on July 15

This bill may come up for a vote before Congress goes on the summer break.

A government take over of the US health care system will be a disaster both to our economy and to the quality of medical care.

For more information, see

The Cato Institute’s “Five Myths About Socialized Medicine”

Heritage Foundation “The House Health Care Bill a Blueprint for Federal Control”

Defeat of Cap and Trade

Status: Currently in Senate, reported to be delayed until after the summer break, passed out of the House on June 26

This bill stands to have ruinous effects on our economy, significant increases in costs for utilities and purchases, and intrusion of government into nearly every part our lives.

Stop the NEW Real ID – S 1261 – The PASS Act

Sandra Crosnoe - Finding Gems & Sharing Them

S 1261 Pass Act: Providing for Additional Security in States’ Identification Act of 2009

as usual the title really is a misnomer and is designed to lull you to sleep – did it work?


Information provided by Restore the Republic and Stop Real ID Coalition

Great information here on Axiomamuse.

Text of remarks and phone numbers to call below:

Dear friends and fellow Americans,

I have an EMERGENCY ACTION ALERT for you Today that requires your immediate and direct attention.

This ALERT is regarding the MORPHING of REAL ID in to the PASS ACT. The REAL ID as you may or may not know was the failed law that snuck through congress in May of 2005 that would require all Americans to Carry a standardized FEDERAL ID card with an embedded trackable chip.

NOW I need you to contact your senate committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs IMMEDIATELY to STOP THE PASS ACT – S.1261

Special interests groups are trying to force Democrats, Independents and Republicans to support this legislation. States have been and are working to ensure drivers licenses are secure documents and have document integrity. The federal government, in spite of the states, wants to set international standards that are not needed. The federal government wants control of your state drivers license. The federal government is bribing states to go along with its plans.

We spoke with Mark Lerner about the emerging PASS Act a few weeks ago.

Our freedom and our rights are not for sale!

Some governors want to take the bribe money.

The senate committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will be considering the legislation very soon.

The PASS Act does not repeal the Real ID Act. It does repeal provisions of the Real ID Act; those provisions that are included in Title II of the Real ID Act 2005. The Real ID Act is still intact and is federal law.

The PASS Act contains many of the most egregious aspects of the Real ID Act; including the requirement for a digital facial image/photograph that will be mandated to be internationally facial recognition compatible.

There is not a federal law that prohibits the simultaneous use of CCTV/surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology in real time.

The PASS Act will do nothing to provide a higher level of National security. Under the provisions of the PASS Act the documents used to obtain a drivers license are not authenticated. These documents are called breeder documents.

Although requirements for new databases and the linking of databases are not part of the PASS Act the fact remains through aamva.net and NLETS states can still have information contained in their state Department of Motor Vehicles made available to both federal and international law enforcement agencies without a court order.

Two international agencies (AAMVA and the ICAO, an agency of the United Nations) were involved in U.S. policy and law – the Real ID Act 2005 and the newly proposed PASS Act. DHS has called AAMVA the hub and backbone of the Real ID Act. On AAMVAs own web-site it proclaims it is an international organization that serves law enforcement and motor vehicle administrators.

Both the Real ID Act and the PASS Act result in Americans being enrolled into a single global biometric identification system that links a persons body to their ability to buy and sell.
WE ARE ASKING EVERY AMERICAN TO CALL EACH OF THE SENATORS in the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee AND SAY:

We are opposed to the Real ID Act and the PASS Act
We are opposed to being enrolled into a biometric identification system
We do not want our social security numbers in state DMV databases
We do not want RFID chips in our drivers licenses
We are opposed to the federal government intervening in the issuance of state drivers licenses

TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND CONTACT call these numbers:

Senator Lieberman (202) 224-4041 Chairman

Senator Collins (202) 224-2523

Senator Akaka (202) 224-6361

Senator Bennet (202) 224-5852

Senator Burris (202) 224-2854

Senator Carper (202) 224-2441

Senator Coburn (202) 224-5754

Senator Ensign (202) 224-6244

Senator Graham (202) 224-5972

Senator Landrieu (202) 224-5824

Senator Levin (202) 224-6221

Senator McCaskill (202) 224-6154

Senator Pryor (202) 224-2353

Senator Tester (202) 224-2644

Senator Voinovich (202) 224-3353

The First, Fourth and Tenth Amendments are under attack. The Second Amendment will follow. This is not a partisan issue. All Americans must take action now. 16 calls per American, 16 minutes (one minute per call) for a Lifetime of Freedom.

This Alert has been provided by the STOP REAL ID COALITON and Restore the Republic.

Please forward this ALERT to all you know, embed it on your favorite blogs and forums, and take action now to preserve freedom in America!

I am Gary Franchi, and remember I am not here to make you a follower I am here to make you a leader among the people.

Goodnight, and God bless America.
