South Carolina -- Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Freedom


Dear South Carolina HSLDA members and friends,

Election time is fast approaching. This November 7 some state and
federal officials are up for re-election. Who is elected will
determine what freedoms you will keep and what freedoms you will lose.


Exercising your right to vote is crucial. The voter guide described
below will help you make informed decisions as you cast your vote.

Remember statistics show approximately only 50% of eligible adults
actually register to vote. In any given election only about 50% of
registered voters vote (that is 25% of adults)! That means only takes
about 13% of adults to elect any given candidate. Your vote does
count!

Also remember that the general election ballot will include a very
important proposed amendment to the South Carolina Constitution.
Voters will be asked to approve a constitutional amendment to define
marriage between one man and one woman as the only lawful domestic
union.

Requested Action:
Download the Palmetto Family Council's Voter Guide for the 2006
Election at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3431 . If you have not yet used a
voter's guide, you'll be pleased with how easy it is to decide who to
vote for by answering the same questions submitted to the candidates
and comparing your answers to theirs.

Please help spread the word about this new resource for responsible
citizenship! Forward this message to your family and friends in South
Carolina so they can also utilize this valuable resource.

For a legal perspective on what activities churches and pastors are
allowed to take part in, check out these resources prepared by
attorney James Bopp: Do's and Don'ts for Political Activities of
Pastors:

Activities by Churches and Pastors:

Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
Senior Counsel

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
freedoms.
