Getting Serious


Written by David E. Smith

I don’t have to tell you how important this year’s elections are. I’m sure you understand how critical it is that you and like-minded people in your sphere of influence take part in the political process and vote for those candidates that will uphold the basic principles that our state and nation were founded upon — those candidates who will fight for faith, family, and freedom.

For several years I have hoped that Christian conservatives would understand something vitally important:

We don’t have a legislative or public policy problem in Illinois, we have a political problem.  If we don’t solve the political problem, we are only spinning our wheels and should not expect to realize any real or meaningful change.

Illinois has had great, common-sense pro-life legislation introduced every legislative session since 2003, such as abortion clinic regulations and ultrasound requirements, and  yet, every year these bills do not get called for a vote.  And year after year the same powers that refuse to allow them to be heard are placed back into power. Remember what happened to the Choose Life License plate effort? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

If the powers-that-be don’t want a piece of legislation to move – it’s dead. And make no mistake – liberal special interest groups, including the pro-abortion forces at NARAL and Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and of course the LGBTQ lobby, have invested heavily in the powers-that-be.

Until we get serious about the political problem, we will continue to be relegated to playing defense.

That is why during election season, it is important that we focus our efforts on the political front and have a strong political action committee — IFA-pac.  Additionally, we’ll continue to do limited election work through Illinois Family Action, our 501(c)4.

Would you please consider making a donation to the IFA-pac so we can help the right men and women get elected to critical positions in Springfield?

We know what happens when those who do not support natural marriage, life at all stages, and religious freedom get elected to office. They pass laws that prevent millions of Americans to live in a way that is consistent with their faith.

And far too many members of the Illinois General Assembly are willing to spend taxpayer resources we simply do not have, which is digging us further into debt and creating a depressing economic culture of  higher taxes and unemployment – a culture we’re leaving to the next generations. To suggest that our state political leaders have been irresponsible and bad stewards of hard-earned taxpayer resources is the understatement of the year.
