The midterm elections are "very important," the American Family Association says. "As bad as things are, they will be infinitely worse if the liberals win."
The AFA offers the following list (verbatim) of what conservatives can expect if Democrats regain control of Congress:
-- Amnesty for 12,000,000 illegal immigrants.
-- A push to make homosexual marriage and polygamy legal in all 50 states.
-- Only liberal judges will be appointed. They will create laws to implement the social agenda liberals cannot get passed through the legislative process.
-- Liberals will make the killing of the unborn more difficult to stop.
-- Liberals will continue to try to rid our society of Christian influence, including any reference to God in our Pledge and on our currency.
-- A return to the "Fairness Doctrine" in broadcasting where opposing views must be given equal time. Every conservative talk show host will be forced to give a liberal equal time on every issue. The purpose of this rule will be to shut down conservative talk shows.
-- An increase in taxes to push new social programs.
-- Passing a new "hate crimes" law making it illegal to refer to homosexuality in a negative manner.
-- Liberals will give terrorists from other countries who try to kill Americans the same rights American citizens enjoy under our constitution.
--We will withdraw from Iraq, sending the message to the terrorists that if they will just be patient they can win and bring their terrorist acts to the U.S.
The American Family Association is warning conservatives that the liberals' strategy is to disgust and discourage Values Voters (about the Mark Foley scandal, for example) to the point where conservatives will stay home rather than vote.
"If that happens, the liberals will have achieved their goal and they will be running our country," AFA Founder and Chairman Don Wildmon said.
In an effort to get more conservatives registered to vote, the American Family Association has set up a ValuesVoters website that offers state-by-state information on the voter registration process, voting dates, absentee ballots and deadlines.
Conservative voters were the largest single largest factor in the 2004 elections, Wildmon said. "Now is no time to let up," he warned.
