On Selecting Those Who Shall Represent Us
by Rus Walton (former Exec Director, Plymouth Rock Foundation)
We again present this piece, first run for the 2008 elections, because we believe it is even more important this time around.
"Tell me how the American Republic will treat Christ and I will tell you the future of the republic. Because the destiny of a nation depends upon its relation to Christ, I stand at the portals of our nation and, as a loyal citizen, cry, 'Lift up your heads, 0 ye gates; and be lifted up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of Glory shall come in...,"
“Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers over hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers often.” Ex 18:21
Christians are not second-class citizens. When we accept Christ as our Lord and Master, we are not relieved of our duties or excluded from our rights as citizens of this nation.

"Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

I Like Christine O'Donnell, And My Gut Tells Me She's Right and Her Critics Wrong
by Jerry Newcombe
If I lived in Delaware (and I wish I did for only one day—November 2, 2010), I'd vote for Christine O'Donnell for senator.
Why? Because she promises to oppose the furtherance of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi agenda. And I believe her. That alone suffices for me in this race.
With all the terrible things being said about her lately, even by establishment Republicans or "conservatives," I'm reminded of a line from Shakespeare, "Me thinks thou dost protest too much."

Call Me Senator
by producer/director David Zucker in response to the Senator's dressing down a Brigadier General for calling her “Ma’am.”
Do We Remember?
by Sylvia Vrabec (author of upcoming NPI book: Oceanography)
We are almost at the end of this election cycle. Whether we win or whether we lose will depend upon whether we really know the meaning of America.
Is it possible that We the People, who determine America's fate, have become like children who were brought up in a fine home, but never knew who their parents were nor what their parents stood for?
Do we understand America and what it stands for? George Washington in his Inaugural Address gave homage to Providence, to God, for His Providential Care that had overseen their winning of the war and given them the wisdom to form a new nation. George Washington's faith in the revolutionary principles set forth in the Bible was so strong that they gave him the assurance to stand against a power ten times the strength of the Colonial Army. Realistically speaking, there was no way that such an army, undernourished and under supplied, could win. It was a battle of his faith against reality, fought, as he knelt on his knees in the snow.
Do we really know what those principles of liberty were that had been handed down generation by generation during the course of centuries? These principles were, in a manner of speaking, our parents.
The Bible admonishes us to REMEMBER. Do we remember or have we, as a people, forgotten them? The outcome of this election will evidence whether we remember these principles of our forefathers or whether these principles have been lost in the vastness of time.
NEW! Confrontational Politics
by Senator H. L. Richardson, Ret.
How to Effectively Practice The Politics of Principle
In this era of ever-growing, more distant, unresponsive government—and politicians of both parties who do not walk their talk—retired California state senator H. L. (Bill) Richardson's book is a strong tonic.
He warns, however, his words are not for the faint of heart: as Finley Peter Dunne once said, "Politics ain't beanbag."
He spells out in a series of lessons how his often hard-pressed conservative minority was able to win victory after victory on issues like the death penalty, gun control, and removing liberal judges. "The central theme of this book is the methodology both sides use. Being 'right' is not enough," he cautions.

The Brave Boys of Derry is a true historical narrative of how courageous young apprentices helped save their besieged Protestant town of Londonderry in 1689.
"This is the sort of book that needs to be republished and put into the hands of freedom-loving people around the world, giving them hope to see how brave, courageous boys stood up with their townspeople in His Story with His help, and what needs to be done today with the Lord's Providential aid for the cause of personal and civil Liberty in Christ."
