5 Non-Negotiables Issues

Based on Church teachings, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Encyclicals of the Pope, and issue papers from the Office of the Doctrine of the Faith, the following five issues concern actions that are intrinsically evil and must never be promoted by the law.

Intrinsically evil actions are those that fundamentally conflict with the moral law and can never be performed under any circumstances. It is a serious sin to deliberately endorse or promote any of these actions, and no person who really wants to advance the common good will support any action contrary to the non-negotiable principles involved in these issues.

What is ballot harvesting, and why is Trump tweeting about it during

Ballot harvesting isn’t an official legal term, but it generally refers to someone collecting absentee ballots on behalf of others and then submitting them. Some voting rights experts see the term "ballot harvesting" as pejorative and prefer the term "ballot collection." Many states allow at least certain individuals to collect some ballots on behalf of others.

The RNC also opposes a bill supported by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that says states "may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return."

Beware the Fall Ballot Harvest

When Donald Trump gripes about mail voting, Democrats see an attempt to discredit the result if he loses in November. “This president,” Joe Biden said last week, “is going to try to steal this election.” If they truly believe this, Democrats should do more to safeguard the ballot.

They’re now doing the reverse. The Democratic House passed a bill that would mandate “ballot harvesting” nationwide, letting paid activists canvass neighborhoods to collect absentee votes. The bill would also force states to count mail ballots that...

Making Heroes out of Dope Dealers & Stoners

Marijuana trafficking and drug-money laundering are still illegal under federal law. The Heroes act would change that by incorporating a version of the so-called Safe Banking Act (HR 1595) into the legislation.

Faith and Freedom Coalition

We believe that the greatness of America lies not in the federal government but in the character of our people — the simple virtues of faith, hard work, marriage, family, personal responsibility, and helping the least among us. If we lose sight of these values, America will cease to be great.

Never before has it been more critical for us to speak out for these values. That is why the Faith and Freedom Coalition is committed to educating, equipping, and mobilizing people of faith and like-minded individuals to be effective citizens. Together we will influence public policy and enact legislation that strengthens families, promotes time-honored values, protects the dignity of life and marriage, lowers the tax burden on small business and families, and requires government to tighten its belt and live within its means.

New group aims to help pro-choice women candidates in Florida races

TAMPA - Several prominent Tampa Democratic women are among a group trying to develop a state-level imitation of the powerful national political fundraising organization EMILY's List. The new Florida organization, Ruth's List, will focus only on state races, but has the same goal that EMILY's List has in congressional races: "To elect pro-choice, progressive Democratic women candidates," said Fort Myers political consultant Ellis Robinson. It was the brainchild of Tampa Democrat Alex Sink, state chief financial officer, who's running for governor. Backing Sink will be the group's top priority this year, Robinson said. But she and others denied it's just an outgrowth of the Sink campaign. The organization was planned in 2007 and began operation last year, before Sink decided to run for governor, Robinson said.    Pat Frank, Pat Kemp
