“Health authorities say almost a hundred children have died from the flu and 46 states now have widespread flu activity… I can only imagine that there might have been some difficulty in (getting those children the) flu shot. So many are in that predicament, so many do not have access to doctors and clinics and health insurance or a vigorous, robust public option”
—Sheila Jackson Lee, Congresswoman
On Thursday– This week on “Voice of the Nation” we will be discussing the healthcare scare being pushed through congress. Congress is trying to push nationalized healthcare through the House and Senate, yet polls show that the American people do not support government run healthcare. After a summer of discussion, concern and voicing our objections to the healthcare policies being put forward by this congress the concerns of the people are not being heard.
Join us as we speak with Cheryl Flake, wife of Congressman Jeff Flake of Arizona, about what is going on in Congress. With personal experiences involving their son, Cheryl believes that if they didn’t live here in the US with the great medical care and advancements available here, her son would be severely handicapped.

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton gave a presentation in St. Paul, MN on the subject of global warming. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty that is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.
A draft of the treaty can be read here:
Chuck Norris has an article in WorldNetDaily with a good analysis of the treaty:
There has been considerable debate raised about Monckton’s conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede US sovereignty. His comments appear to be based upon his interpretation of the The Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. TREATIES as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the US Constitution. In the 1950s, a constitutional amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass. You can read more about the Bricker Amendment in a 1953 Time Magazine article:
Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming.

Don’t be naive, Maine citizens!
Writing in the Kennebec Journal Morning Sentinel, Pat Truman of Hallowell remarked:
Regarding the attorney general’s opinion “Gay marriage law irrelevant to schools” (Oct. 16), how naïve does she think Maine citizens are!
Because Janet Mills didn’t find any references to marriage in the public school curricula — does she think that once “same-sex marriage” is legalized, homosexuals and their apologists won’t be demanding that homosexual relationships be taught in schools as normal?
That is their modus operandi: first to portray themselves as victims to get sympathy and support — then, to employ the incremental approach until they achieve their ends. (Take a look at Dennis Altman’s book, “The Homosexualization of America.”)
Therefore, once homosexuality is normalized, all boundaries are down.

Maine split on gay marriage question
From Public Policy Polling: Raleigh, N.C. – Two weeks out from election day Maine voters are divided right down the middle when it comes to whether they will reject the state’s law allowing same sex couples to marry.
48% say they will vote to over turn the law while 48% say they will vote to keep it with only 4% of the electorate still undecided.
Opinion on the issue predictably breaks heavily along party lines. 74% of Republicans are planning to vote yes while only 25% of Democrats are. Independents may end up deciding which way it goes- presently 50% of them support rejecting the law with 44% in opposition. Older voters are strongest in their support of cutting off gay marriage. 54% are in support with 40% opposed. Senior citizens can often dominate the electorate in low turnout elections so the ultimate fate of this measure may lie in how many younger people get out to the polls and vote.
There is a strong gender gap on the issue with 53% of men but only 43% of women wanting to reject the law. It’s also interesting to note that while white voters oppose undoing the law by a thin 47-45 margin, nonwhite voters in the state support rejection by a 55-35 margin, creating the overall tie.
“The fate of Question 1 is going to be decided by which side does a better job of mobilizing their supporters to get out and vote,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.
“Voters in the state know where they stand on the issue and now it’s just an issue of who shows up.”
PPP surveyed 1,130 likely voters from October 16th to 19th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-2.9%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

The United Nations is no replacement for parents.
“Parents play an irreplaceable role in the lives of their children. This vital relationship positively impacts a child’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The right of parents to maintain a strong involvement in their children’s lives has been continually upheld by Supreme Court doctrine. It is deeply valued by millions of American families.” —ParentalRights.org

In a culture that is increasingly confused on the role of the family and the appropriate role of government, we can’t afford to let these precious rights go undefined.
Join the movement for protecting parental rights! Pass it on!

Teacher: I can’t teach about homosexuality in schools? “Give Me A Break!”
In a teacher’s own words! Can there be any question what will happen in our schools? Don’t let it happen! Get involved! and then Vote Yes on 1!
– Firefly Dove
See this from Stand for Marriage Maine:
National Public Radio interviewed Deb Allen, a Massachusetts sex education teacher, on the topic of how some teachers have responded to the teaching of sex education following the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts. The content is chilling and should be a wake up call to all those who believe our opponents lies that gay marriage won’t be taught in Maine simply because it is not expressly required in LD 1020.
The NPR reporter tells listeners that when Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, homosexual activists went right to work developing a, “gay friendly curriculum for kindergarten and up.” The reporter notes that Allen “says the debate around gay marriage is prompting kids to ask a lot more questions like what is gay sex which Allen answers thoroughly and explicitly with a chart.” But the most alarming quote in our ad is from Ms. Allen herself:
“I know that, OK, this is legal now. If somebody wants to challenge me I say give me a break.” — Deb Allen, Teacher
The ad actually does not tell the full extent that this teacher instructs 8th graders on gay sex. The news story shockingly reveals that students learn in detail about various ways lesbians engage in sex.
WARNING: Graphic Contents
The full NPR story is available here.
We entrust our young children to teachers every day that we send them to school. But because marriage has always been understood as being between a man and a woman, we have not had to worry about a trusted teacher teaching our sons and daughters about a new version of marriage and all that it entails. Yet all of that could change, as it has in other states, if we do not prevail on November 3rd.
Please help us get the word to Mainers that there are real consequences if Question 1 fails. We have been working hard to explain to Mainers that there are significant, negative consequences to legalizing same-sex marriage that reach far beyond the boundaries of the two people who simply want to “marry”. We have laid bare the fact that legal scholars from across the country including those who support gay marriage predict a new flood of lawsuits against individuals, small businesses and religious organizations who may conscientiously object to providing their services to gay couples. We have shown proof that in other states where gay marriage is legal, it is taught to young children in school. We have made it abundantly clear that such instruction is, in fact, a part of public school curriculum. We have further established and the state Department of Education is on record agreeing with us that there is absolutely nothing in LD 1020 that prevents such instruction from taking place.
Time is of the essence to make sure that all Mainers know the very real, very serious, and very negative consequences to society should Question 1 fail on November 3rd. We are counting on your continued support.

Liberty’s March Has A New Generation of Patriots
The Tea Party movement of 2009 shocked the political establishment, the nation at large and left a big media machine dizzy in its wake. How did it happen? Where did it come from? Now, experience the story of the movement that’s driving our national dialogue against big government spending and a Constitution under assault. “Tea Party: The Documentary Film” follows the struggles of five grassroots individuals and their transformation from home town rally goers and rally organizers to national activists in the 912 March on Washington. In the process, the film reveals what is at the heart of this nationwide surge of civic engagement – a return to and respect for a Constitutionally limited government, personal responsibility and fiscal restraint at the Federal level.
NATE Nate, a young black man from Detroit, Michigan, voted for Barack Obama in 2008 from an upbringing that taught him to mistrust America because of the color of his skin. As a Libertarian with a paradigm shift and a newfound understanding of the nation he loves, he is risking the anger of family and friends by joining the march against a President’s policies that would victimize the very people he loves the most.
JACK Jack is a father of two young children, a little league baseball coach and a health insurance agent. He risks losing his job under current healthcare reform. He is a Democrat turned Constitutionalist and the younger brother of a Vietnam soldier who is marching for his children, his brother’s legacy and the future of the America he believes in.
JENNY BETH In 2008, she and her husband lost a multi-million dollar business, were forced into bankruptcy and home foreclosure. Nine months later, she is working as a national leader in the grassroots tea party movement, organizing events and taking her message to the steps of the National Mall with the company of millions behind her.
WILLIAM William is a patriot renaissance man, a pastor, colonial re-enactor, painter, poet, Vietnam veteran, former Pentagon and Secret Service employee and a man of the march. He can be outrageous and funny or somber and reflective, full of antics and unpredictability. He marched for the Vietnam Memorial during the Reagan Era and this time, his journey back to Washington, DC leads him to the front lines of the march down Pennsylvania Avenue on September 12.
DR. FRED SHESSEL Dr Fred Shessel is a doctor moved to action against a government threatening to undermine the doctor-patient relationship with suffocating beaucracy and increased taxpayer spending. After years practicing as a highly respected urologist, he is stepping out of the hospital corridors to lead an army of fellow physicians into the halls of power and corruption and fight for his patients on Capitol Hill.
DAVE Dave is a 20-something young professional studying to become a doctor. He spent time as a fashion model in Milan and beyond and is sick of big government and the apathy within his own generation. He is now moved to action in the tea party movement by a government gone too far.
