Religious Liberty Created America

Today, certain anti-Christian groups attack the core of our country: religious liberty. They promote false ideas about Christians "forcing religion" on all. But let's get one thing straight: Christians do not believe in forced conversions. The very foundation of Christian belief is that each person must decide to receive or reject Jesus as Savior and Lord. It cannot be forced. (Read more about it here.)

So what is there to fear in allowing Christians equal religious liberty? Well, quite frankly, a lot. If anti-American liberals lost grip on their control, their dangerous agendas would be tossed aside as well. You see, religious liberty allows for all liberty.

Last weekend, I (Carrie) had the opportunity to meet Governor Bobby Jindal. Prior to visiting with him, I heard him give a thought-provoking speech in which he said, "America didn't create religious liberty. Religious liberty created America." Isn't that the truth?

Today we face a mounting attack against religious liberty. And, it is arguably the greatest attack on our nation. There many evils pressing in on our country but the attack on religion truly is the root of the problem. If the Bible, prayer, and basic Christian values were promoted in our culture today, more people would know the difference between good and evil. Now, it is commonly promoted that was is evil is good and what is good is evil. Sadly, we live in an upside down society.

But there is hope! We must not give up. The only thing we must give up is fear.

Perseverance is an important key to success. We agree with Governor Bobby Jindal who is speaking out that there is hope to repeal ObamaCare is we don't give up. (Read the below feature article.) We can't "throw in the towel" but rather we need to "step into the ring" and fight back for our freedoms.

We hope that you enjoy this edition of Unite the USA. Pass it on and share it with a friend. It's not a cliché when we boldly say this: Together we can make a difference. How? Prayer and action. With God, we can! After all, we must remember that "the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action" (Daniel 11:22, ESV).

God bless you,

Defend the 9/11 Cross 

A group of atheists are "offended" by the 9/11 cross. The 9/11 cross has brought comfort, hope, and inspiration to countless people ever since it was brought out of the 9/11/01 rubble. 

The 9/11 cross is not only historical, but it is also a symbol of hope and faith for so many. It deeply saddens us that atheists want to remove it simply because it offends them. The 9/11 cross has a right to stand. It's a part of history.  

In response, we've created a FaceBook event called "I Stand With the Cross". This is a grassroots event for the American people and by the American people. This is the American people's forum to show that, yes, the 9/11 cross matters and it should not be removed. Please visit our online event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/290419621125862/     This is a way for the American people to stand up and be heard.   

The cross has the right to stand; join this event to show your support for the 9/11 cross and freedom. We're hoping to gain strong support by 09/11/14. It's simple: All you have to do is join this event to show your support.

 

Yes, we can still repeal ObamaCare.
-Let's get to work!


By Governor Bobby Jindal

According to those in the elite salons of Washington, ObamaCare cannot be repealed. The conventional wisdom on the cocktail circuit contends that once you mandate health insurance for millions, you cannot unmandate it.  This theoretical belief has become accepted in Washington as a dogmatic article of faith.  And the Obamacrats and most of the press believe that repeating this mantra often enough will make it so.

Of course, many Beltway insiders claim that ObamaCare cannot be repealed because they wish to preserve the financial windfalls the law has brought them.

From the Big Pharma CEO bragging about the "rock-solid deal" benefitting his industry, to the health insurers who have a captive audience of Americans now required to purchase their products, to the lobbyists seeking preferential treatment in regulations, ObamaCare has become big business to the K Street crowd.  No wonder so many view repeal of the law as fantastical-it would take away their gravy train.

The idea that ObamaCare cannot be repealed defies both logic and real world justification, on multiple levels.

But even many conservative "thinkers" in Washington have given in to ObamaCare fatalism.  They may not say so in public, but they fully believe that talk of the law's repeal exists only in the land of unsophisticated rubes.

The country that won two world wars and put a man on the moon cannot, it is believed, repeal a disastrous public policy. Says who? Why not?

I know a little bit about health care policy, having spent most of my adult life analyzing and implementing policy changes on the state and federal levels.  And based on my decades of experience, the idea that ObamaCare cannot be repealed defies both logic and real world justification, on multiple levels.

First, the fact that the federal government has by force of law and under pain of taxation forced millions to sign up does not constitute "success" or "progress."  In fact, I bet the administration could have raised their enrollment totals even higher if friendly IRS agents had paid personal visits to all Americans "encouraging" them to enroll.

The real "progress" thus far from ObamaCare? Health care premiums have gone up, health care costs continue to escalate, and millions of consumers are losing their plans and finding that they may not be able to see their doctors any longer.

Let's remember, too, that ObamaCare was sold on a series of deceptions - if you like your plan you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor, and premiums will decrease on average $2,500 per year.

To pass ObamaCare in the first place, the American people were sold a bill of goods that would make even P.T. Barnum blush.

In one sense, the smart guys are correct. Conservatives do need to articulate alternatives to ObamaCare-because the American people need relief from premiums that continue to skyrocket.

The plan I endorsed [in April] would do just that-focus like a laser beam on reducing costs. The Congressional Budget Office previously analyzed many of the policies included in our plan, and concluded they could reduce premiums by thousands of dollars compared to ObamaCare's surging costs.

Many families struggling with rising premiums and co-payments might believe that they will never see relief. But the notion that we can't slow the growth of health spending is just as fanciful as the idea that ObamaCare cannot be repealed.  The only reason we can't accomplish both objectives is political will-because Washington needs a Beltway-sized reality check.

Fortunately, there's a big country out there. We don't care what they think in Washington, and we are not willing to quit on the idea of America.
