Conservative Values

Patriot Voices believes: 

Promote the Dignity of Every Human Life

  • We must respect the dignity of all life from the unborn, the disabled, and the elderly. 
  • We must protect the unborn through a constitutional amendment.  As our founders declared, our Creator endowed us with inalienable rights- of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 
  • The right to life is the foundational starting point for freedom and the government is obligated to protect it. 
  • We must prohibit federal funding for any form of abortion.

Defend and Strengthen Traditional Marriage

  • We are committed to protect and enforce the Defense of Marriage Act which is the law of the land. 
  • Marriage is the union of a man and woman and we support a constitutional amendment to protect marriage.
  • We must protect marriage as a foundational institution for children and society from activist judges and Justices seeking to impose liberal values on America.  
  • The government can help families by tripling the tax deduction for children and supporting other pro-family measures.

Promote Religious Freedom and Civil Society

  • We must support restoring freedom and limited government by repealing President Obama’s policies that prohibit freedom of conscience and religion, such as the HHS mandate, and go back to honoring the principles our Founding Fathers gave us in the First Amendment. 
  • We must stand with charitable and faith-based efforts to help neighbors and improve communities.

Nominate and Confirm Constitutionalist Judges and Justices

  • We must confirm judges and justices that respect the Constitution and understand their proper role in a system of limited government.

Promote Educational Opportunity and Empower Parents

  • We must unleash the potential of every child by enabling parents to direct the education of their children toward excellence with expanded high quality educational options at the state, local, and family levels. 
  • We must block grant to the states and localities most federal education dollars and restore higher education loans to private sector competition.

federal dollars are not and have never been used to fund abortions…Planned Parenthood only uses federal funded programs like Medicaid as a form of insurance. I’m not saying people need to change their stance on abortion, if you are morally opposed to abortion for religious reasons thats your deal…I just urge you not to defund planned parenthood because it stops women from having proper access to contraception, pap smears, breast and ovarian cancer exams, and so much more. Please understand that Planned Parenthood does not primarily perform abortions…they primarily serve women in under privileged areas and grant them preventive and primary care.

Along with promoting educational opportunities we should not forget about making them possible as best we can. We read lots of data and statistics like on what is the number of students in the waiting lists and how strong the contest is for example in the area of nursing so everyone understands how beneficial is higher education but we cannot find a way to make it more available.

If you want to see term limits and balanced budget amendments, support Article V and the Convention of States; it’s the only way.

Although I agree with most of your points, But, I’m afraid that standing firm on anti-gay marriage and outlawing abortion will keep you from becoming the running mate of Dennis Michael Lynch for 2016! My fantasy…..(same msg to him)

1) Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional. There is no substantive right to privacy. The case lacked a plaintiff, which at once made the ruling illegal. The High Court legislated from the bench, because the original and infamous trimester framework cannot be cited in any positive law from Congress. This case was judicial activism in the extreme, which promoted an extreme position of a “living constitution”, because the original intent of the 14th amendment was not meant to give license to women to murder their babies on demand via abortion. How do we know this? Because the majority of the states had laws restricting abortion when the amendment was ratified to the Constitution. Roe v. Wade is worse than Dred Scott, the former granted license to murder, while the latter granted license principally for enslavement, though murder certainly did happen at the hands of racist, liberal Democrats.
2) All judges who subscribe to the illegal and unconstitutional “living constitution” legal interpretation should at once be precluded from ever sitting on the High Court or any other Federal court for that matter.
3) Marriage is between one man and one woman at the very least. It is between one man and many women at the very most. This is because the principle purpose of marriage is procreation in a regulated manner. It is impossible for procreation to happen outside of those two categories. Marriage has nothing to do with either equality or liberty. Can the union procreate in principle or not? That should be the only criteria for marriage (obviously between two consenting adults; age of consent can be set by society).

I agree 100% with democrats that a persons use of (or non use of) contraception is none their bosses business. That’s the reason the boss shouldn’t have to pay for them. Its not company business.

On the gay prison issue: I’ve decided (@ age 58) that I’m a lesbian trapped in a mans body. I demand, that if I ever go to jail or prison, to be played in an all female facility.

The strategic retreat on gay rights should allow some gay adoption. When the mother remarries, and in some special needs cases, the experiment chould be permitted.
The child support, on gay divorce, should be an example to fear.

Gay adoption applicants should automatically be moved to the back of the line. Its best for the children to replace parents with applicants who are the most similar to the mother and biological father.
Adoption isn’t a privilege to accommodate an adult’s personal rights.

It would be a mistake to attack Hillary Clinton over Bill Clinton’s affair. The one thing most Americans like about Hillary is that she stood by her man and kept the dirty dog.
I think about where I might be with someone like that???

“Preserving the traditional definition of marriage in law”

IS ridiculous, we didn’t have a National Marriage Policy before 1923. At that time, many states didn’t have licenses, and this is a state of affairs that dates back before us being a nation.

SOMEHOW, the founders lived in an age sans marriage licenses, as Did Abraham Lincoln, as did Teddy Roosevelt, I say, why not go back to that? What do we need Marriage licenses for?

The State of marriage certainly hasn’t improved since 1923, and I do not not think anyone here thinks that Gov’t has the ability to decide what marriage is, particularly if they’re deciding it the other way.

Just as Paul Ryan stated in the debate, our freedom and rights are given to us by God and nature! The proof is looking at society today. Statistics show that Traditional families – one mom, one dad, and children produce the enviornment most conducive to the success and well being of the children.

Preserving the traditional definition of marriage in law is key to protecting the only institution that connects children with their moms and dads.

The birthright of every child to know and as far as possible be raised by his or her married mother and father trumps the emotional needs of consenting adults.

We must promote the marriage culture of getting married before having children in order to pursue the conservative goals of limited government. When the family structure breaks down, the government has to step in with costly social services.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He loves you, he gave his life for you. I believe that. You call that hate? OK. You are right when you say that someday us old people will be gone, and along with that our influence will be gone. Eventually the human race will be gone when it is unable to procreate.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Santorum:
I have looked over the list of issues which this organization supports, and find that I am comfortable supporting most of them. However, I am not able to agree with the issue of support for traditional marriage, nor for DOMA. Let me state that I support marriage between two consenting, non-related adults. More importantly, I support the idea of safe, strong and pro-American families, no matter how those families are configured. If children feel safe and comfortable; if the parents (whether biological, adopted, foster or “step-”) provide environments in which the children feel safe and secure; if the education of the children is given a high priority in the household; and if the family exhibits a respect for the rule of law, then how can anyone say that that family shouldn’t be recognized by society? I believe that governments (neither federal, state, or local) have no business defining what a “marriage” is; this is a spiritual matter for churches to decide.
If you can standing having a member who agrees with “most” of your groupd positions, then i am proud to be a member of this group. If not. Mr. and Mrs. Santorum, please notify me of your decision and I will happily look for another group to support.
Thank you.

In order to promote the values listed here our places of worship MUST support these issues. These conservative values will continue to be attacked on the left, in the media, and sometimes by moderate Republicans. Conservatives must effectively teach and communicate every detail of these values. Moral values should be strongly taught, explained and demonstrated in our homes, churches, schools, and communities. These morals need to be taught with love and compassion. We must find real solutions for young women who are single and expecting a child if we expect them to carry that child and give it life. There is a huge need for medical help, housing, monetary support, and much emotional encouragement. Are those needs provided for among the church community? If not through the government, who else but churches and charitable organizations will do it? We need to get the message out as to why traditional marriage is right, and the consequences of choosing the alternative life style. The left argues very effectively for their side. The right has to improve on this as well as getting the point across that it does not come from a spirit of hatred, but form a spirit of love and concern. Somehow the faith community has to be brought into this conversation and be consistently a voice for freedom. We will never get where we need to be aside from the influence of the faith community.

Jean please read Karol Wojtyla’s dissertation on TRUE freedom. It is not doing what you want or feel, but rather doing what is right!
In Veritatis Splendor one of the most comprehensive and philosophical teachings of moral theology he discusses the role of human freedom and human conscience, …
… “Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh” (Gal 5:13) 65.
Excellent prayer, “Oh Lord, do not help me understand so that I may believe. But rather, help me believe, so that I may understand…” (St. Francis…)

As former Vice President Dick Cheney noted in explaining why he supports civil marriage for all American couples, “freedom means freedom for everyone.” He’s right.

What freedom is more basic and personal than the right to marry the person you love?

If we are serious in our belief that every citizen is endowed by his or her creator with the right to pursue happiness, then how can this not include the freedom to marry? What could be more central to a person’s happiness? And alternatively, if we want a smaller, less obtrusive government, shouldn’t individuals and not politicians decide who they can marry?

These are some of the most important issues of today. Abortion is a critical subject; it takes the lives of over four thousand unborn Americans every day. Gay marriage is completely wrong. God destroyed whole cities over this issue, raining down fire and ice from heaven. That is coming for America if we allow gay marriage to be considered as lawful. Traditional marriage was instituted by the Lord Himself in the Garden of Eden when he created them male and female. Mark 10:6-9 But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together let not man put asunder.

Please support the following bill to make President Bush’s adoption tax credit permanent. H.R. 4373 is the only bill that includes a refundable adoption tax credit and that refundability is critically important to make the credit accessible to more families. Unless the adoption tax credit is refundable, many lower and moderate income families will not benefit and may find it more difficult to adopt. PLEASE SIGN ON TO CO-SPONSOR THIS BILL. There are many families that would like to adop
t. The credit off-sets expenses from such things as homestudies to septic tank inspections (yes it is required) Many of us also make modifications to accomodate special needs children that are very expensive. Give these children a chance and support a true PRO-LIFE agenda. Pro-life politicians need to do more than just talk-the-talk.

It is essential that our Nation return to it’s Christian Roots, a place where our Parents and Grandparents were proud to call home. A place were a child was not fearful to read their Bible or pray in a public school, where the Lord Jesus Christ was within the heart and soul of what was being taught.
