Conservative Pro Life Candidates Florida 2014 Republican

Incumbent Governor Rick Scott
is being nominally challenged in the primary by conservative activist and perennial candidate Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder and pharmacist Yinka Abosede Adeshina, and he is a lock to win renomination. Though there were rumblings that someone might challenge him the primary, those rumblings obviously never resulted in a serious challenge, though I am curious as to how a competitive Republican primary would have played out. Cuevas-Neunder seems like a more serious challenger than Adeshina, but in the end, it matters not, because Scott will easily win. Rick Scott is the only Republican hope.

Florida Supreme Court Retention of Judges The Supreme Court race of judges is proving to be especially contentious, as various conservative groups and other individuals have been fighting against the retention of Justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince. The organization, Restore Justice 2014, is trying to oust these justices on the grounds of inappropriate judicial activism--pointing to a 2010 healthcare ruling and a 2006 death penalty ruling. In addition, the Southeastern Legal Foundation was arguing a lawsuit that accused the justices' of illegally using court employees to file their election paperwork.

Religious leaders often overly restrict their speech and actions because they simply don't know what they legally can and cannot say or do. The Alliance Defense Fund has written Pastor Guideline Letter to educate Christian leaders on their broad U.S. constitutional right to speak out. Consider adding a personal note of encouragement to your pastor or priest to not keep silent on the divisive issues facing our culture.

Why Christians should vote and be active in political things

1. God has granted us authority. All authority belongs to God, but He has put human beings on the earth as caretakers. What is our task? According to Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20, we are to go out and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey God in every area of life. This includes politics. We must disciple people to make godly decisions about government, and promote the efforts of those who are already doing so.

2. We need to stand against evil. St. Augustine said those who are citizens of God's kingdom are best equipped to be citizens of the kingdom of man. The alternative is unthinkable. In the 20th Century, atheistic and secular humanistic leaders gained control of nations all across Europe, Asia and Africa. What was the result? According to historian R. J. Rummel, almost 170 million men, women and children have been brutally murdered by these governments, all in the name of human progress. These facts led historian John Hallowell to note, Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil.
Despair never won any battle. Not a single one. So don't despair. It is a useless emotion, and a deliberate trap set by your enemies. Take up the gauntlet and fight on with renewed enthusiasm, because the worm is turning.

Awana - Awana Club International - Awanas

When we see the good that results from applying God's principles, and the horror that results from rejecting them, doesn't it seem cruel and irresponsible to keep Jesus teachings about truth, love and compassion to ourselves? At very least, we should vote to keep OUT of office those who attempt to oppose God's authority.

The Conservative who can win. No doubt other candidates are great tea party types, Mike McCalister (R) , Marielena Stuart (R) -, and former Congressman Dave Weldon (R). Connie Mack is rated as the 3rd most conservative congressman Florida out of 27, an impressive record. Since there is no run off in FL, the best chance to beat a liberal is Connie Mack.

Campaign Hint and Tips: Target Women Voters

Many political campaigns have a limited budget and are looking for the most cost effective way to get their name and theme to people. Of special interest are methods that leve a lasting positive impression. One very effective method that works very well with women voters are Patriotic and Political Campaign Emery Boards. Emery boards are very useful, many hair studios and salons will pass them out and every time they are used it leaves a positive impression. They are low cost and can even be included in mailings.
