This morning at 9am CT I sat in our home office with my husband Paul, awaiting the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare. As I fidgeted in my chair, I thought about all that you have done to educate yourselves and your neighbors about the freedom killing aspects of the law. I remembered those of you who gathered in front of the local ABC affiliate station, on a hot summer day in 2009 to protest socialized healthcare. I thought about those of you who bravely met Moveon.org at Representative Carter’s office, and successfully engaged the protesters in real conversation about why healthcare freedom is so important. Those of you who participated in Town Hall meetings across Central Texas were an inspiration to many citizens who sometimes told us that they were afraid to speak out. It has been 450 long days since the “Patient Care and Affordable Healthcare Act”was signed into law.
After learning today that the Supreme Court would allow the federal government to implement nationalized healthcare as a tax, I thought — what next? We know that the election in November will be the most important election of our lifetimes. We know that we will need to compel those who feel that government intrusion in our lives has gone too far to – Get Out AND Vote! Before we commit any energy in that direction, I thought it would be helpful to get together for lunch and prayer – prayer for our country and prayer for each other. Do you have the time to gather tomorrow at 11:30am? I have reserved the private room at Hemingway’s in Cedar Park for us. They are very happy to host us. If you are able to, please thank them for their space by ordering a bite to eat or something to drink.
If you have never come to one of our meetings, we hope you will join us. Please RSVP here so that we can have a count for Hemingway’s in the morning.
Our members represent most every religion and denomination in the U.S. – I hope all of you will come and pray with us, and pray in the tradition and way that you are accustomed to praying. I hope this time together will give us peace and wisdom for the coming days. –Maria Acosta
