I’ve been saying it for years — family values can WIN when moral conservatives outweigh liberal voters on election day!
Tuesday’s victories across the nation on Nov. 3, 2015:
- The tyrannical homosexual-bisexual-transsexual Houston ordinance forcing its immoral agenda on small business owners and moral people was defeated by 61% of voters! This is a tremendous victory for religious freedom and for pastors “coming out of the closet”!
- Matt Bevin has been elected Governor of Kentucky. My friend Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel describes Bevin as “an outspoken Christian, a strong businessman, politically conservative and Constitution based, pro-life, pro-faith, and pro-family.” Bevin came from behind to win by 9 points, making him the second Republican in 40 years to become Kentucky governor.
- Ohioans voted down legalization of “recreational” marijuana and the deceptive “medicinal” marijuana too.
- Voters in Portland, Maine protected jobs, the economy, and business owner rights by striking down a big increase to the government-imposed minimum wage.
- Wise voters in Coos County, Oregon who realized that responsible gun owners are a great deterrent to would-be violent criminals won their 2nd Amendment rights back by authorizing their sheriff to ignore unconstitutional state and federal anti-gun laws.

Conservatives have a big night in local and state elections
One lesson for Democrats analyzing their losses: Many of the races suffered from low voter turnout and engagement, as off-year elections attract less attention. Traditionally, more Republicans turn out for midterm and off-year elections, giving them a built-in advantage.
Bottom line, Tuesday’s moral victories were a result of more conservatives deciding to vote and vote right, while liberals and the mushy middle were less energized. Elections are simple math. Whichever side turns out the most voters wins!
Pro-family Californians, learn from this! General voter turnout in California is at an all-time low because of corrupt government, bad teaching, and laziness. Therefore, if church-going folks and moral conservatives between San Diego and Yreka commit to vote next year and to urge other pro-family voters to get informed and vote righteously, similar wins can happen here!
Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.
U.S. founding father Samuel Adams, in 1781
Consider well the important trust . . . which God . . . [has] put into your hands. . . . To God and posterity you are accountable for [your rights and your rulers]. . . . Let not your children have reason to curse you for giving up those rights and prostrating those institutions which your fathers delivered to you. . . . [L]ook well to the characters and qualifications of those you elect and raise to office and places of trust. . . . Think not that your interests will be safe in the hands of the weak and ignorant; or faithfully managed by the impious, the dissolute and the immoral. Think not that men who acknowledge not the providence of God nor regard His laws will be uncorrupt in office, firm in defense of the righteous cause against the oppressor, or resolutly oppose the torrent of iniquity. . . . Watch over your liberties and privileges – civil and religious – with a careful eye.
U.S. pastor Matthias Burnett, in 1803
