FRC Poll - Issues Important to AmericansSubmitted by 2ndamenduser on Sun, 10/09/2011 - 03:23
After reading about Ron Paul's great victory at the Values Voter Summit hosted by FRC (Family Research Council), I noticed and participated in a poll they had on their website.
Which issue is the most important in determining your choice of candidate to support?
Results as of 5:00pm, 10/8/11:
4% Protecting One Man One Women Marriage
8% Repealing Obamacare
1% Permanent Tax Relief for Families
4% Protecting Religious Liberty
13% Government Spending
2% National Security
3% Passing a Balanced Budget Amendment
With 52% of the respondents choosing "Other" (including myself), this shows that FRC does not have a clue as to what is most important in the minds of Americans today.
As a pastor, I am dumbfounded at the ignorance of so many "Christian leaders", like Tony Perkins. It is clear that there is one VERY MAJOR issue missing from the list - "Restoring Government Submission to the Constitution" (or something worded similarly).
For far too long the political influence peddlers have successfully kept the American people polarized with single or sometimes dual issues. Now that many are awakening (thanks to Ron Paul's consistency and websites like the DP), the influence peddlers are exposing themselves as either out of touch, ie., being slow to realize what we consider important, as this poll shows, or as being devilishly evil by intentionally suggesting to the sheeple that single issues like the ones mentioned in the poll are important.
The good news is that more and more are waking up and we are slowly, but surely turning the tide. Keep up the good work, all you Ron Paul fans!
BTW, IMHO, RP's speech at the Summit is probably the best political speech ever made - bar none!! Pretty good sermon too!
