Wait! Don’t fill out that ballot until you do THIS! 

In last week’s newsletter we let you know briefly about our brand new iVoterGuide that had just become available within hours of launching that email. This week we’d like to give it the attention it deserves!

November 3, 2020 is Election Day across our nation. Being an informed voter is a challenge with all the races and questions on the ballot during this presidential election. But iVoterGuide has curated information on more than 8,000 candidates in 3,500 races nationwide in order to offer accurate, well-researched facts on candidates.

Here at Wisconsin Family Action we like to say “know before you vote.” That’s why we love to offer the iVoterGuide to you, Wisconsin’s decision-makers, as a FREE resource before you check that first box on your ballot.

The iVoterGuide for Wisconsin gives a report on candidates, information on voting (in-person or by mail), sample ballots and other crucial information.

Click HERE to see your WI ballot with candidates rated from very conservative to very liberal and all points in between.

And remember to SHARE this helpful voter guide far and wide! Be an informed voter and help others be the same!

Have You Made Your Calls? 

On Saturday, September 26, 2020, President Trump nominated an eminently qualified candidate, Amy Coney Barrett, for the US Supreme Court. The Left has long prepared for this battle to replace the Supreme Court’s most liberal icon, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died last month.

As conservatives, we know what we are getting with Amy Coney Barrett—a successful and intelligent judge, wife, and mother of seven, not an activist judge who will be swayed by the winds of culture and “elite” opinion.

We must fill this seat with a nominee of integrity who will deliver an unimpeachable originalist record on the high court. Judge Barrett is that type of nominee. She will be that type of Justice on the Supreme Court!

Please call our Wisconsin senators TODAY! They NEED to hear from you. Let them know you support President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Let them know they need to vote for her confirmation. Let them know they need to stand up and speak out against the obstruction and lies that are sure to come during the confirmation process.

CLICK HERE to learn more about what YOU can do to support Judge Amy Coney Barrett today!

The Dangers of Socialism to Religious Liberty in the U.S.
 

Written by Pastor Mario Lleonart Barroso, Cuban refugee and survivor of religious persecution, “The prosperity and the vast protection of fundamental rights that Americans enjoy today exist largely because there’s been a sacred respect for religious liberties, in an almost direct, cause-and-effect relationship.

“In fact, in any society, there’s a close relationship between respecting religious liberty and the prosperity of other political, civic and economic freedoms. That’s why in societies where socialist, communist or totalitarian ideologies have predominated, we see the contrary take place.”

“Attacks on religious freedom are among the primary and most recurrent violations we see in those societies. When a nation with a democratic heritage is interrupted by a totalitarian regime that breaks the constitutional order and destroys foundational institutions, its first targets are precisely religious institutions, as well as individuals with religious beliefs.

“Destroying the foundations of any society and guaranteeing the oppression of a population who’s been stripped of its rights requires these regimes to also destroy the certainty of imago dei, the idea that we have equal dignity because we are created by God, that our rights come from Him and not from government.”
CLICK HERE to read the rest of Pastor Barroso’s testimony.

“Our founders called religious freedom our first freedom not because it is in the First Amendment to the Constitution, but because it is the underpinning, the foundation, of our other freedoms,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president, “Those promoting socialism today make it sound as if this ideological system is somehow just pretty benign and that in the end we would all be better off we go that direction. That’s a dangerous lie.”
