... Ordinary Americans went to Chick-Fil-A restaurants around the Nation because they had had enough. Enough of the threats to freedom and the bullying of people like the owners of that restaurant chain, precisely because they had the courage to voice their convictions in the public square.
Because they defended marriage as what it is, they were literally threatened, not only by the strident cultural revolutionaries who seek to enforce a new cultural order upon us all, but by Mayors of major cities who were willing to enforce that new cultural order at the expense of true freedom.
We see threats to freedom gathering everywhere around us like storm clouds... There is no word which echoes more passionately within the heart of Americans than that word freedom - or evokes a deeper response. This Nation was founded by men and women who experienced threats to freedom's promise and potential - and responded to them with heroism.
It has beckoned from its birth to all who hear freedom's invitation to come and see what true Freedom means...The antidote to what ails us is a robust return to truth - and leaders unafraid to call us to it again. We need to reach down to the foundation stones upon which this experiment in ordered liberty called the United States of America was built and strengthen freedoms infrastructure by asserting again that "We Hold These Truths to be Self Evident" as proclaimed in the Nations Birth Certificate, the Declaration of Independence.
We need leaders who are unashamed to insist that there is such a thing as truth, which can be known through the exercise of reason. Freedom must be exercised in relationship to that truth. Otherwise, it is illusory and will lead to new forms of slavery and anarchy...

Conservative values taste like chicken.
Well said!! And we probably won't see the long lines at the voting booths like we did at Chick-Fil-A. There won't need to be, because there are a LOT more places to vote than there are CFA restaurants!
Send this to everyone that you know and tell them to pass it on.
