QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." —Ronald Reagan (this quote is too good to change)
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude."—Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816

Attached is a flyer for a proposed plan to
not only get reform on the ballot in November but to also raise significant sums
We are looking for feedback on the feasibility of this plan. We have the
petitions; we will supply collateral material, walk lists, door hangers, etc.
All we need are the grassroots to get this done. Whether or not you agree
with the Six States, the fact is we should have this debate and it is far better
for those funds to be spent on building a grassroots effort instead of having
these funds go to paid signature gatherers.
Both of these initiatives will generate worthwhile debate about the
direction of this state. If we are serious about real reform, not tinkering
around the edges (or rearranging the deck chairs), we need to do this NOW.
Harvard study revealed what many of us have been feeling – millennials are
starting to feel the effects of bad policies on our generation. We produced a
video with some of the important findings from these recent studies that we
believe others need to know. Will you help us by passing it along?
This is a video created entirely by college students
to help wake up our generation.
Recently PFAS let you know
that the Secretary of State declared us 17,276 signatures short of qualifying
the referendum. That meant that the State rejected more than one out of every
five signatures, throwing out more than 131,000 signatures
PFAS asked: Were
you one of the signatures that was thrown out?
Many of you responded and
you were quite angry. You want to know how you can find out if your signature
is one of those that has been rejected. And you want to challenge the
Unfortunately, the State
considers that information private. There is no easy way for you to find out if
you are part of the 131,000 rejected signers. Signatures are rejected or
accepted behind closed doors and the public rarely gets to know if they are
counted or have effectively been disenfranchised.
But we will tell you some
of the reasons that signatures have been thrown out.
If your signature on the
petition looks different than your signature on a voter registration card or
even a DMV record, then your signature may have been thrown out.
If the printing of your address looks like
the printing of any other signer on that page, then your signature may have been
If you left out or
transposed any numbers in your address, then your signature may have been thrown
If you were mistaken
about which county you live in, then your signature may have been thrown
Some believe that this is
fair, that a signature and all accompanying information should be filled in
perfectly by the signer. Nobody should help fill in the address (or if you had
help, you should write a note on the petition that says so). There should be no
leniency for age and infirmity or even cultural issues. If you signed the
petition quickly or your signature has changed over the years, that is too
That may sound good. We
all want to be sure that the system is not manipulated and that all of the
signatures counted are legitimate.
But it also looks like
the goal is to find a reason to reject--not
accept--signatures. And the results (more than one in five thrown
We know that election
officials are very lenient on who can vote. Efforts to assure the identity of
voters has been fought throughout the country. But when citizens want to
challenge a misguided law, suddenly these same election officials become experts
at handwriting and printing and are not so interested in letting everybody be
The law allows for PFAS to
now look at the rejected signatures and to challenge the results. Election
officials are not making this easy for the PFAS representatives and attorneys
that are seeking to examine the rejected signatures.
But we will not be
bullied. We will fight to have fair standards, consistently applied.
And we will demand that all valid signatures be counted.
To those who have helped us
finance this battle so far, we thank you. To those who can help us now in this
important stage, your generous donation is needed
We intend to fight to have every valid signature

Pelletier Headed to Foster
Care, Romeikes' Fate Uncertain
watching two court cases on Monday, and neither has been resolved.
first case was Romeike v. Holder, the asylum case for the family who
fled Germany over their right to choose the form of education their children
receive. Given that every case on Monday’s list was denied cert (turned
down for a hearing before the Supreme Court), we were thankful the case did not
make the list. But the case’s absence from the entire report came as a complete
surprise. To be on the discussion schedule for Friday (as it was) and not
reported on the following Monday is exceptional.
Romeike case has been scheduled for discussion again this Friday,
February 28. So we will watch for the March 3 report to learn whether
the Court will take up this case to defend parental rights.
case was that of Justina Pelletier, the 15-year-old Connecticut girl who
was taken into custody by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families
on Feb. 15, 2013 – more than a year ago – because her parents and
doctor disagreed with a new diagnosis issued by a doctor at Boston Children’s
Justina was diagnosed in 2012 with mitochondrial disease,
a condition in which the cells are unable efficiently to produce the necessary
energy for sustaining the body. It is a hereditary condition which she shares
with her older sister. Through a special diet and supplements, Justina’s mito
was under control, allowing her to do the things a normal teen would do,
including her favorite: ice skating.
Then she got the flu, and was sent
to BCH where her gastroenterologist has privileges. But when she got there, the
hospital refused to let her see her specialist. Instead, a new doctor denied her
treatment for her pain and other symptoms and sent in the psychiatric team
instead. Justina was diagnosed with somatoform disorder – a psychiatric
condition in which she is only imagining her health symptoms – and moved to the
When her parents protested and sought to take her to
Tufts Medical Center – the respected teaching hospital where her own fully
licensed physician practices – BCH called in Massachusetts Department of
Children and Families, who took custody of Justina. The hospital accused
the parents of medical abuse – for following the diagnosis and treatment
instructions issued by her own physician!
Parents Lou and
Linda Pelletier have been through several hearings in the last year, each time
hoping that reason will reign and their daughter will be returned to their care.
In December, the judge ruled that Justina could leave the hospital – but that
she would remain in the care of the state. She was later transferred to a
non-medical care facility.
The latest hearing was Monday, Feb. 24 – the
same day we expected to hear back on the Romeike case - and the family
once again hoped and prayed that Justina would be returned home. Since the
change in her diagnosis and treatment, her physical condition has worsened
considerably, to the point that she can no longer walk, but is constrained to a
Instead, the judge ordered her into foster care, still under
the direction of Massachusetts DCF, and still without the medical care she
needs. Overwhelmed by sadness and stress, mother Linda collapsed outside
the court room and had to be taken by ambulance to another Boston
hospital, where she is still being kept for observation. Even more tragically,
Justina continues to suffer the wrong medical care while the state
pursues its case of “medical abuse” against her parents.
Pelletiers return to court March 17 for the next hearing in their custody
battle. Lou Pelletier is also due in court on March 24 on charges of contempt
for appearing on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze program to talk about his
daughter’s case, in spite of a gag order issued by the judge to protect the
secrecy of the court. It is apparently Lou’s belief that the First Amendment
protects his freedom of speech, and that his fundamental rights as a father make
him the safeguard of his daughter’s privacy rights in such a situation. (It is
also presumed that Justina appreciates and agrees with her father’s attempts to
secure help for them both.)
According to the United States Supreme Court,
“The law… historically…has recognized that natural bonds of affection
lead parents to act in the best interests of their children.” And
again, “Simply because the decision of a parent…involves risks does not
automatically transfer power to make that decision from the parents to some
agency or officer of the state.” Parham v. J.R., 442 U.S. 584
While ParentalRights.org is not currently involved in the
Pelletier case, we are working to promote statutes in every state to protect
this right of parents to make medical decisions for their children.
Ultimately, the answer lies in adopting the Parental Rights Amendment to the United States
Constitution to forever protect this right of parents to be the
first, best line of defense for their children’s interests.
Thank you for standing with us as we
work to halt government abuses of parental rights, especially
related to our most vulnerable – persecuted families in need of asylum and
children in need of medical care.

McConnell (R-KY) has officially hit the panic
Despite telling the media for months that he's way ahead in
the Republican primary race against conservative Matt Bevin (R-KY), Mitch
McConnell is now lashing out with desperate attacks.
It started earlier
this week with a deceptive campaign mailer that was designed to trick voters and
to smear Matt Bevin. Here's how United Kentucky Tea Party described
"This past week the McConnell campaign sent thousands of mailers
to Kentucky residents marked “Fraud Alert” without any identification as to who
had sent the mailers. Kentuckians, concerned that their identities or credit
card information may have been stolen, opened the mailers only to find that it
was a political mailing from the McConnell campaign containing the same old
mudslinging accusations that Senator McConnell has been trying to push for

Now, Mitch McConnell has launched a new radio ad attacking Matt
Bevin and conservatives like you, claiming that we are deceiving people. He's
especially upset because SCF is running effective radio and TV ads that expose
his record of voting for bailouts, more debt, higher taxes, and Obamacare
We blew the whistle on his bailout hypocrisy and informed people that he
was responsible for recommending the controversial liberal judge who just overturned Kentucky's ban on same-sex
Mitch McConnell is attacking conservatives because he's
slipping in the polls and can't defend his record. He's done so much to help the
Democrats that Harry Reid (D-NV) praised him this week after calling Ted Cruz

First they tried to ignore Matt Bevin, then they laughed at
him, and now they're attacking him.

down. We cannot back down.
The future of our country
depends on winning this race. Mitch McConnell is not a conservative and he
refuses to fight for our principles. We will never be able to stop the liberals
from destroying our country with McConnell in charge.
SCF pays the processing fees for all candidate
contributions so Matt Bevin will receive 100% of the money you designate for his
Working together, you have raised over $680,000 for his
campaign. It's a lot, but it's not enough to match McConnell's $10 million war
That's why it's important that every freedom-loving American
engage in this race by making a contribution to Matt Bevin's campaign. Even if
you only donate $5, we can win this race if everyone pitches in.
McConnell has been in Washington for thirty years and it's time for a change. He has reached the point of desperation so
we must work even harder.
Thank you for being willing to support
principled and courageous leaders like Matt Bevin in Kentucky. Your efforts are
making a very big difference.
