2016 General Election Endorsements

IFApacEndorsements

The November 8th General Election is just around the corner! Prior to going to the polls, make sure that you know where your candidates stand on life, natural marriage (one man/one woman), and religious freedom.  Please take a moment to check out IFA’s online voter guide at: ILVoterGuide.com

As in every election cycle, we have the blessing of being part of something that’s extraordinary, which most of the world can only dream of doing. We get to participate in self-government by casting our vote for local, state and federal officials. While some people claim that this is a wonderful privilege, we submit to you that it is much more than a privilege.  It’s an phenomenal responsibility and it’s a stewardship issue.

Presenting IFA’s New Podcast

IL_Family spotlight_516x260

Written by David E. Smith

We are excited to announce a new Illinois Family Action (IFA) feature: podcasting! For those who are unfamiliar, a podcast is simply a digital audio recording that is easily listened to and shared with others through a computer or smart phone. Podcasts are a convenient and popular way to reach, educate, and connect with an audience.

Our podcast, Illinois Family Spotlight, will be a weekly podcast that provides analysis of and commentary on political and cultural events and issues. We hope to provide a new podcast every Tuesday morning.

Illinois Family Spotlight will highlight cultural and political issues of particular interest and relevance to our subscribers. Our discussions will be informed by a biblical worldview that will help expose the lies and distortions promulgated within our increasingly anti-Christian.… Continue Reading

Can You Help Us?

PeoriaGOP1

Dear IFA Friends,

I am reluctantly coming to you to ask you for your financial help, but I need to ask you: Will you consider an online donation of $15 or more to support the work of Illinois Family Action (IFA)?

Five members of the Illinois Family organization are going to the Illinois Republican Party convention this weekend, not only to promote our pro-life, pro-family, pro-marriage message, but to defend the current Platform from liberal attempts to weaken the life and marriage planks.  Planks I helped to defend during the last convention in 2012 as a member of the platform committee.  This year, I was not able to secure a spot on this vital committee.

A few weeks ago we alerted you to the fact that Pat Brady, the disgraced former chairman of the Illinois GOP who went to work for the radical ACLU, is a member of the platform committee this year. … Continue Reading

IFA in Springfield TONIGHT: “Agenda 2: Masters of Deceit”

AGENDA2

When:  Thursday, April 28th
Where:  iWorshipCenter (map)
Time:  6:30 PM

Written by David E. Smith

After Curtis Bowers, a former Idaho state representative, wrote a letter to the editor about the drastic changes in America’s culture, it became the feature story on the evening news, people protested at the Capitol, and for weeks the local newspapers were filled with responses.

He realized then that he’d hit on something. So, he began to investigate and found an abundance of evidence proving how the Left is advancing a “progressive” socialist agenda. Bowers explains just how well this agenda has been implemented in his documentaries.

He tells us what he is desperately trying to get Americans to understand:

The left wants you to think that the cultural changes that have taken place since the 1960’s have done nothing but progress us forward, toward a brave new world.

ILVoterGuide.com is the most comprehensive voter guide you will find!

The March 15th election is just around the corner — it’s time to get serious! Primary Elections are in many ways the more important election because it is in this election voters decided between the “okay,” “mushy-middle” or the “hold-my-nose” candidates and the “better” or “best” candidates.

And with the countdown to election day on, Illinois Family Action (IFA) wants to remind you that we have an excellent online voter guide that will equip you with the most comprehensive information on the candidates so that you can confidently choose those who best reflect your values. ILVoterGuide.com

ILVoterGuide.com identifies candidates on a 7-point scale from “very liberal” to “very conservative.”

Voters can see for themselves:

  • How candidates have voted in the past
  • Who has endorsed them
  • Who the candidates give money to
  • Where the candidates’ money comes from
  • How the candidates answer questions on critical issues
  • Virtual Vote Rating on candidates that have never held public office

Simply put, voters cannot trust the media, big money or sometimes what candidates claim in election mailers or in debates.  … Continue Reading

Get Involved - Let Others Know!

Action Needed Urgently!


Written by David E. Smith

The family is the bedrock of society. It is the institution that teaches people to give for the sake of others. It is a school of morality. And the family is under siege. President Ronald Reagan underscored the importance of family in a national address on May 28, 1985:

There is no cultural institution as ennobling as family life. And there is no superior, indeed no equal, means to rear the young, protect the weak, or attend the elderly. None.

The family is not just a group of people who choose to like one another. No, the family is an institution built on a marriage between a man and woman. Everyone should know that. But, of course, not everyone understands that anymore. The propagandists are doing their job very well.Continue Reading

Getting Serious

get-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.  … Continue Reading
