Election Day Tomorrow!

As a public service to my brothers and sisters in Christ, let me here list the Five Non-Negotiable points that must guide all Catholic voters and which should guide all Protestant and Orthodox, Nestorian, Coptic, and Monophysite Christians.

The basic rule is that you cannot call yourself a Catholic and vote for a politician who calls himself Catholic, if that politician supports, votes for, or fails to oppose aborticide, euthanasia, fetal stem cell research, human cloning, or homosexual so-called marriage, without committing a grave moral error and disobeying the teachings of the Holy Mother Church. So, no more voting for Pelosi, Biden, Kerry, Kennedy, Leahy, Kucinich, and so on.

The servants of Moloch and the supporters of prenatal infanticide should not and cannot be received into the communion of Christians without repenting and doing penance; and you cannot support them with your vote or your voice without joining them. This is not my opinion, loyal Sons and Daughters of the Church: Rome has spoken. The case is settled.

My fellow Christians who have broken with Rome have not broken with Christ–and we should all realize that abortion could be abolished from this nation in one election cycle, if only we Christians were serious about the issue, even without the help of other men of good will.

A firmly anti-abortion Congress could remove jurisdiction of the federal courts over this matter, return it to the states, and strike down any federals laws and regulations supporting or funding this hateful, inhuman, and abominable practice.

But other men of good will shall help us: human feeling is not dead in the hearts of Jews and Muslims, and human life is held sacred in the souls of votaries of Oriental faiths, Buddhist, Hindu, Shinto.

The Democrat party has become a hideous tower of Babel, a stronghold erected to defy and mock both the will of the common man here below and the wrath over heaven here above. Look at what that party has become: they are no longer the friends of Catholic social teaching. They are no longer the friends of the poor, or the blue collar worker, or any union that is not a political or quasi-political union.

Vote your conscience, and obey the iron voice of your conscience. Do not vote your feelings, your fears, or your family’s habits or old practice of voting. Do not listen to the soft, squishy, hot-tempered voice of your feelings. Listen to the cold and exact voice of your conscience within you, the voice that never makes you feel comfortable. As a Jedi might never say: Your feelings cannot be trusted; use your eyes.

From Catholic Answers (http://www.caaction.com/pdf/Voters-Guide-Catholic-English-1p.pdf)


Catholics have a moral obligation to promote the common good through the exercise of their voting privileges (cf. CCC 2240). It is not just civil authorities who have responsibility for a country. “Service of the common good require[s] citizens to fulfill their roles in the life of the political community” (CCC 2239). This means citizens should participate in the political process at the ballot box.

But voting cannot be arbitrary. “A well-formed Christian conscience does not permit one to vote for a political program or an individual law that contradicts the fundamental contents of faith and morals” (CPL 4).

Some things always are wrong, and no one may vote in favor of them, directly or indirectly. Citizens vote in favor of these evils if they vote in favor of candidates who propose to advance them. Thus, Catholics should not vote for anyone who intends to push programs or laws that are intrinsically evil.


These five issues are called non-negotiable because they concern actions that are always morally wrong and must never be promoted by the law. It is a serious sin to endorse or promote any of these actions, and no candidate who really wants to advance the common good will support any of the five non-negotiables.

1. Abortion

The Church teaches that, regarding a law permitting abortions, it is “never licit to obey it, or to take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law, or to vote for it” (EV 73). Abortion is the intentional and direct killing of an innocent human being, and therefore it is a form of homicide.

The child is always an innocent party, and no law may permit the taking of his life. Even when a child is conceived through rape or incest, the fault is not the child’s, who should not suffer death for others’ sins.

2. Euthanasia

Often disguised by the name “mercy killing,” euthanasia also is a form of homicide. No one has a right to take his own life (suicide), and no one has the right to take the life of any innocent person.

In euthanasia, the ill or elderly are killed out of a misplaced sense of compassion, but true compassion cannot include doing something intrinsically evil to another person (cf. EV 73).

3. Fetal Stem Cell Research

Human embryos are human beings. “Respect for the dignity of the human being excludes all experimental manipulation or exploitation of the human embryo” (CRF 4b).

Recent scientific advances show that any medical cure that might arise from experimentation on fetal stem cells can be developed by using adult stem cells instead. Adult stem cells can be obtained without doing harm to the adults from whom they come. Thus there no longer is a medical argument in favor of using fetal stem cells.

4. Human Cloning

“Attempts . . . for obtaining a human being without any connection with sexuality through ‘twin fission,’ cloning, or parthenogenesis are to be considered contrary to the moral law, since they are in opposition to the dignity both of human procreation and of the conjugal union” (RHL I:6).

Human cloning also ends up being a form of homicide because the “rejected” or “unsuccessful” clones are destroyed, yet each clone is a human being.

5. Homosexual “Marriage”

True marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Legal recognition of any other form of “marriage” undermines true marriage, and legal recognition of homosexual unions actually does homosexual persons a disfavor by encouraging them to persist in what is an objectively immoral arrangement.

“When legislation in favor of the recognition of homosexual unions is proposed for the first time in a legislative assembly, the Catholic lawmaker has a moral duty to express his opposition clearly and publicly and to vote against it. To vote in favor of a law so harmful to the common good is gravely immoral” (UHP 10).

And, as a private service to any Non-Christian readers kind enough to read my journal, let me remind you why every American of any denomination should and must oppose the Democrat Party Machine politics in its recent and very corrupt manifestation. Let me quote at length from a Hillary supporter:


I was a Democrat for 32 years before the heavy-handed push for Obama alienated me from the party…and I borrow what Hillary Clinton said about Republicans once, back when she was a Goldwater Girl, and will paraphrase by saying that I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.

After it beat me to a pulp, called me a racist, berated and insulted me, and used Alinsky Rules to hit me with everything it had. Not just me, but all Hillary supporters.

This is the part I don’t think you understand because I don’t know if you and your listeners paid much attention to what the Obama campaign and DNC did to malign and assault Hillary Clinton’s supporters during the 2008 campaign. None of this has been forgotten by any of us.

If you have not seen it already, Rush, you need to watch Gigi Gaston’s documentary “We Will Not Be Silenced 2008″. I’m featured in a segment on the voter fraud that was committed in the Iowa Caucus back in January of 2008. While I was always aware Democrats use unions and other means to cheat in elections, I never knew the Democrat Party was capable of the large-scale, aggressive, unapologetic fraud it committed on Obama’s behalf all through 2008. In Iowa, I watched Obama’s ACORN and SEIU goons push and shove old people, bully them, and intimidate them when they wanted to vote for Hillary Clinton. I saw scores of Illinois license plates fill the parking lots outside caucus locations, with Chicagoland Obama supporters illegally entering the Caucus sites to vote for Obama and game Iowa for him. Having planned ahead, Obama supporters actually RAN those caucus sites, and held the doors open for all these fraudulent voters to walk right in, without being asked for IDs, where they then took control of the caucuses and bullied the Iowa residents into supporting Obama — lest they be called RAAACISTS! out in the open in front of their friends and neighbors in those open-air caucuses.

The media has never talked about this. I don’t remember ever hearing you talk about it. But one of the biggest reasons the Democrats are in the trouble they’re in right now is because of how frequently the Left and the media (one and the same, really) called anyone who opposed Obama a RAAACIST. If you supported Hillary Clinton in the primaries instead of Obama, you were called a RAAACIST. If you were someone like me who fundraised for Hillary, who hosted events for her, who put yourself out there and wrote columns advocating her or did media spots talking up her candidacy, you were aggressively targeted by the Obama campaign and his supporters…relentlessly attacked as a RAAACIST! and assaulted with the Alinksy Rules for Radicals in hopes of breaking your spirit, terrorizing you, and making you abandon Clinton for fear of having these people destroy your life, ruin your business, and make you an absolute pariah in your community.

This is what the Obama campaign, the media, and the DNC did to DEMOCRATS.

For almost a year, the Obama zealots and the Left waged all-out-war not just on Hillary Clinton, but on lifelong, loyal, dyed-in-the-wool Democrat voters like me. This came straight from the top, from Obama himself. Both he and his wife Michelle called the Clintons racists. Obama’s surrogates like James Clyburne, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, John Lewis, and others called Geraldine Ferraro, Madeline Albright, and others racists. The Obamas toxified the South Carolina primary, in particular, with foul race-baiting and turned North Carolina and Indiana into racial powder kegs by ramping up accusations that anyone not supporting Obama was a vile racist that needed to be pounded into the ground.

Stephanie Tubbs Jones, my former Congresswoman back home in Cleveland, was a black Hillary Clinton supporter to the very end — and she was called a “race-traitor”, an “Aunt Jane”, and all manner of worse names as she was bullied, berated, and verbally assaulted by the Obama team…because she was black and dared to stand with her friend Hillary Clinton, the person Tubbs Jones knew would make a better president than “The One”. To her dying day in August of 2008, Tubbs Jones was threatened by the Obama campaign and told she’d be primaried in 2010 and kicked to the curb for being a “race-traitor”. She died of a brain aneurysm while driving her car, and Obama supporters filled Daily Kos, DemocratUnderground, and other George Soros-supported sites with lies about her drunk driving, doing drugs, and other slurs because even after she died these people wouldn’t stop hating her for daring to be an outspoken black woman who would never abandon Hillary for Obama.

Since I was on the receiving end of a two minute hate organized by Democratic Underground cyberthugs when I dared to criticize the Sci-Fi channel for kowtowing to the GLBT lobby, I both sympathize, and can attest that the ‘Alinsky Tactics’ is exactly the method of procedure employed. You can quite easily find places on the Internet calling me a bigot, homophobe, and racist, because I said in public that I want to write Science Fiction stories without having a political pressure group telling me what to write, telling my publisher what to publish, telling the public what to enjoy.

Finally, as a public service to people who simply like American and don’t like the direction things have gone in the last two years, here is a list of reminders. I pulled this list from Andrew Price at Commentarama (http://commentarama.blogspot.com/2010/10/election-reminder.html).

• ObamaCare didn’t go far enough because the Democrats sold out to the health insurance lobby and the Republicans.

• Harry Reid used the threat of filibuster (a false threat when he had 60 votes) to stop or slow everything the Democrats should have done.
• Obama never gave benefits to gays in the Federal government, which he could have done by Executive Order, he failed to stand up for gay marriage, and the Democrats didn’t even try to end “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

There you have it.
