Urgent Post-Election Update from Mike Farris

Dear Friend,

There is no easy way to say this. Our goal of protecting parental
rights and homeschool freedom just got a lot harder as a result of
Tuesday's election. This is especially true in the U.S. Senate where
we will now face 53 senators who have uniformly supported UN treaties
to undermine our families and our national sovereignty.

Those who wish to push America into the camp of UN-controlled nations
have to be absolutely giddy at their prospects.

Before the election, we had obtained intelligence that the proponents
of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities were
going to make a serious run for ratification during the lame duck
session of Congress that starts next week. Their chances of success
have dramatically improved.

We can and must fight back. We need 34 senators to stand against these
efforts that would place American policy and our families under the
watchful control of the United Nations.

It is going to take a far more robust effort to stop the ratification
in this political atmosphere. We will have to conduct a massive public
relations campaign to educate about American sovereignty and the
impact of UN treaties on our liberty.

Time is absolutely of the essence to stop the Senate from handing our
nation over to the bureaucrats in New York and Geneva. Please give
sacrificially today to our Homeschool Freedom Fund to halt this
pro-treaty surge.
I just returned from Germany where parental rights in education are
non-existent. German parents warned me to redouble my efforts to stop
these UN treaties lest we fall into the same trap.

I need your help right now.
Your donation is tax-deductible. More importantly, it will help
preserve your God-given freedom to direct the education and upbringing
of your children.

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
