Open Letter to Dr. Dobson

October 10, 2007

Aw shucks, can’t we just get along?

I do hope that Dr. James Dobson (who I admire greatly) doesn’t throw the baby out with the political bath water.

I agree with some of what Dr. Dobson says. I also admit that it has been difficult for me to get excited about some of our other Republican Candidates but not for Fred Thompson. Until Dr. Dobson, comes to that realization, I honnestly believe we are looking at another Clinton Presidency.

I wouldn’t try to look into his mind or heart but what I see Dr. Dobson saying is: if he can’t get just what HE HAS ORDERED UP he doesn’t want any part of what we Republicans have left. That my dear is a recipe for disaster. He must know that.

The world won’t end because we elect another President Clinton, but we will have stem cell research on a wholesale level. We will have abortion on demand and probably at every street corner. Roe vs Wade will never be looked at again. We will have a cut and run foreign policy. Which will translates into 4, 5, or 6 dollar a gallon gasoline prices which spells RECESSION. We will have higher taxes on the people who work hard and earn the most money. Illegal Immigration will be the order of the day until President Clinton gives Amesty to all of the illegals who inturn will vote Democrat. Can you spell Quid Pro Quo?

For the longest time, Radical Islam hated and killed Jews. Their goal was and is the termination of israel and the restoration of the their Mosk at the Temple Mount. They have now moved past that goal and have their sights on everone worldwide who does not support Islam. Remember the World Trade Center? They are out to kill us because we are infidels. They look at us as something less than human. I want a President who will stand up to Terrorism not a President who would kiss someone like Arafat for political expediency.

Jesus was totally different. He told his disciples, if they don’t accept your message, knock the dirt off your sandles and move on. That’s the Savior I believe in. .

I could go on but I think you see how strongly I feel about this.

If you have any influence with Dr. Dobson or any of his people, please ask him to pray about what he is apparently trying to do to the Republican Party as we now know it. If he has a Republican savior (small s) for us, ask him to tell us now and not at the 11th hour when its too late.

Focus on the Family may soon become focus on America’s past, especially if Dr. Dobson suceeds in destroying every Republican candidate that doesn’t meet his standards. I proudly support Fred Thompson. I hope other Evangelicals will as well.

    It was one of our Founding Fathers, John Quincy Adams, who said, “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”

    Dr. Dobson has every right to press for whomever he wants as his next President. I think the reason why he and other evangelical Christians have decided that maybe a third party endorsement would be best is because the ideals in the Republican Party have shifted slowly over time, becoming more moderate. As an evangelical Christian who has been involved with the Republican Party for many years, I have seen some shift take place. Only one of the Republican presidential candidates has pointed out that the Republican Party used to be the party with a humble, non-interventionist foreign policy.

    Perhaps Mr. Lybrand is unaware of some vital information that every registered voter, especially every Christian, needs to be aware of:

    1. Fred Thompson is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR):
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Thompson

    Rear Admiral Chester Ward [Rear Admiral US Navy (retired), CFR member for 16 years, Judge Advocate General of the Navy 1956-60] once said, “The main purpose of the Council on Foreign Relations is promoting the disarmament of U.S. sovereignty and national independence and submergence into an all powerful, one world government.”
    http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quote/chester_ward_quote_04b1

    Anyone who is a member of the CFR — or agrees with their ideology — is not dedicated to protecting America’s sovereignty, borders, or heritage.

    2. Fred Thompson supported and even co-sponsored the “McCain-Feingold” Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2001 legislation that became law:
    http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d107:SN00027:@@@L&summ2=m&
    http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=107&session=1&vote=00064.

    It was commonly recognized that McCain-Feingold was an attack on freedom of speech
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campaign_finance_reform
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A30280-2004Aug24.html
    which is protected under the U.S. Constitution, Amendment 1:
    http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#Am1.

    Indeed, part of McCain-Feingold was struck down as unconstitutional in June 2007 in the landmark case “Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life, Inc.” by the Supreme Court of the United States: http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/06pdf/06-969.pdf.

    3. Fred Thompson, while supposedly having a pro-life voting record, has received payment as a lobbyist for the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association, an abortion rights support group:

    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/77371.php
    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/80213.php.

    It is our patriotic duty to be informed about these matters, not just accept whatever the media talking heads want us to believe. As for my husband and me, we are backing the Republican presidential candidate who:
    * has NEVER voted to raise taxes,
    * has NEVER voted for an unbalanced budget,
    * has NEVER voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership,
    * has NEVER voted to raise congressional pay,
    * has NEVER taken a government-paid junket,
    * has NEVER voted to increase the power of the executive branch,
    * voted AGAINST the Patriot Act,
    * voted AGAINST regulating the Internet,
    * voted AGAINST the Iraq war,
    * DOES NOT participate in the lucrative congressional pension program, and
    * returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

    Currently, there are more than 100 times as many Meetup groups for this candidate as for Fred Thompson because many people realize that freedom and liberty are too precious to lose. Let us all be aware.
