Saint Sam for President in '08

Dear friends,

Already many of the candidates who will be seeking the presidential bids of their repsective parties have announced their intent to do so. It's been said the nomination field is getting crowded with at least 10 Rebulican nominees and much the same for Democrats. The President of the United States of America is supposed to exemplify what it means to be American, to show us a right as rain example of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is a crucial time in American history, and America needs a great leader to stay the course. Many of the candidates can offer great things to the land of the brave, but as we are seeing with most of the candidates, they also have many things that will outright hurt the nation.

Canadidates like Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, Rudy Guliani and John McCain have shown us time and time again with their rhetoric and voting records that they will not support the right to life of people in their earliest stages of life, despite science telling us that human life begins at conception. Do we want a President who doesn't respect life or doesn't listen to science?

Mitt Romney and Guliani have made it clear to us that they do not value marriage, that the union between a man and a women for life should be denegraded and seen as equal to disordered unions between two men, or two women.

The only support we've seen Clinton and Obama give the military is the kind that says they'd be doing a better job if they would pack up and go home because they can't handle finishing the job.

Thankfully, for America's sake, there are some great candidates running. Names such as Hunter, Huckabee, and Sam Brownback resonate above the others. These are the men who stand for the values the United States of America was founded on.

Sam Brownback is of particular interest. No other candidate has been so active in defending life, marriage, the disabled, the poor at home and abroad, supporting the military, helping the middle class by lowering their taxes, getting constitutionalist judges on the Supreme Court (e.g. Roberts and Alito) and supporting alternative fuels. I am convinced there would be no one better to lead the United States of America as President.

Some Evangelicals may have some reservations about Brownback because he is a Catholic. I would encourage them to pray and think about who the best candidate is for their country in the long run. Who has the best Pro-life voting record? As a Catholic myself, I would have no problem voting for an evangelical oriented candidate like President Bush or Reagan. And out of Christian charity, I would hope evangelicals would return that good favour and elect Catholic politician. We live in an age where in order to build up the kingdom of God on earth, and build a culture of life, all Christians must work together. Besides, Brownback hails from an Evangelical home, and can relate to all of America's Evangelicals. Because Catholics and Evangelicals share in all the most relevant political goals, Brownback would equally benefit both camps if elected.

Please support Sam Brownback!
