BY THE GRACE OF OUR CREATOR
To Our Brothers and Sisters in the USA
We have been informed by those who have been working on school vouchers that they have finally succeeded in having a bill sponsored in Congress that can serve as a model and trail blazer for all 50 states. Although the bill only provides school vouchers in the District of Columbia, which comes directly under the jurisdiction of Congress, it provides every American voter the opportunity to use their influence at this critical time, when all 435 House seats and 34 U.S. Senate seats are up for election on November 8.
Therefore, every voter in every state can directly influence their Representatives by calling 202-224-3121 to explain the critical importance of signing onto the Education Freedom Accounts Act (S.2455/H.R.4426) now, prior to Election Day. Parental choice in education is not only consistent with the Constitution, which requires Congress to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” the many successful pilot programs across the country provide positive proof that parental choice improves both the quality and efficiency of education. It is the only way to hold educators accountable to parents, who are primarily responsible for raising and educating their children.
The short period before Election Day provides us all the incredible opportunity to provide both material and spiritual help for every child and family in the country. It is our heartfelt request that everyone take part in this great opportunity to bring blessings to all Americans, by improving educational opportunities for all America’s children.
