Houses of worship have continuously been discouraged to speak on or share opinions on policy or politics, even when these policy changes and political games affect their ability to feed their congregations spiritually, or even directly challenge the moral and ethical standards within their faith. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, institutions of faith lost their liberty and freedom to assemble, and were even issued fines if they upheld their commitment to their people. The health system has demanded contract tracing and mask mandating within institutions of faith. Outreach programs have diminished, creating a need that is incalculable among our most needy of populations.
Our goal is to activate and mobilize the faith community through a Faith Alliance. The FEC United Faith Alliance will bring all institutions of faith together to educate spiritual leaders on the importance of providing a faith-based view on policy and politics to their congregations. Through this Faith Alliance, we will prioritize inter-faith communication and develop collaborations to ensure our religious freedoms are protected.
Every level of our education system has been compromised with illogical and immoral propaganda. State boards of education, local school board districts, school administrators and many teachers represent a politically-charged agenda and not parents or students. We have observed indoctrination of our children as parents are left in the dark about curriculum, culture, and climate within the school systems. Parents have lost their ability to choose what is right for their families and children as their rights are stripped away and drowned out by teachers unions. Policy changes have created the potential for forced vaccines without parental knowledge or consent. Children are forced to wear masks, even if they are struggling to breathe or the mask becomes soiled. Even worse is that they are subjected to bullying or shame if they encounter these struggles. As schools continue to manipulate data, even in regards to the risks of impeded access to clean air throughout the day, we are allowing our children to suffer under false pretenses and outright lies.
Our goal is to return children to normal—not a “new normal”—but back to normal. This means no temperature taking, mask wearing, or obsessive use of harmful chemicals found in hand sanitizers. We desire to see education return to its intention, to educate children on the basic knowledge necessary to succeed in life. Children should have access to sports, activities, and programs that enhance their lives and experiences, which is the extended purpose of a well-rounded education system. Our long-term goal is to ensure school boards are held accountable for the actions they take, curriculum they implement, and policies they enforce. We will do this by creating a Parents Alliance that will act as a collective voice to stand our ground against teachers unions.
Businesses, particularly small, family owned businesses, are not represented at any level. They are forced to collect and pay forward taxes to federal, state, and local agencies, without compensation or representation. Chambers of commerce and business associations stood silently through devastating government overreach as they continued to acquire their fees and dues, failing to advocate on behalf of their members at any level. We have seen various governmental agencies, such as liquor boards, weaponize their ability to penalize businesses with outlandish fines and threats to strip them of licensure they had legally obtained. All businesses have the right to operate freely and have equal protections for due process. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” did not come with the contingency of “upon government determination.” Hundreds of thousands of businesses have permanently closed, detrimentally affecting millions of lives and livelihoods. Systems being established to force compliance through government incentives and selective employment benefits goes against every value America has fought for to obtain and sustain a free market economy.
Our goal in commerce is to see business owners and employees thrive and prosper without restriction in a truly free market, as was intended. We believe every dollar is a vote, for or against the values that business promotes and supports. Supporting local businesses is the foundation of a healthy local economy, which is why we are working to develop a freedom network of businesses that members can search to find the products and services they are in need of in their geographic areas. We will also work to provide support resources and remove bureaucratic obstacles for business owners. We will evaluate needs in communities and work to fill these identified support gaps for the local business community.
