Rumbling Down the Tracks and Picking up Speed

The train is headed right for you and your family. Think fast. What do you do?

Step out of the way? Absolutely. Try to call ahead and get someone to help stop the train? Even better. You don’t want anybody else to have a close call, or worse, be hit.

Well, let me tell you, the train of the cancel culture and moral relativism is headed right for you, and you better do something, or you and your family will be the next victims.

The new social “woke” way of thinking is that you’re either on board our train, or you’re about to be run over by it. The train is huge and is pulling many cars. Train cars with names such as Gender Rights, Abortion without Restriction, Something for Nothing, Political Correctness, I’m a Victim, Media Bias, Kill Free Speech, and many others. They are all brimming with contents, already spilling out over the landscape of our country.

You and your family can certainly step out of the way. But I don’t suggest you try to escape this dreadnought barreling towards you on your own, for it will certainly squash you like a bug if you try.

Or, you can try to stop the train. Try to protect your family and other families. Stop the wanton spread of these concepts antithetical to your values in every way. But that’s hard isn’t it? It paints a target on your back, and I don’t blame you for not wanting to go there.

Let me clue you in on something. At Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota we already have a big target on our backs. In fact, the train sometimes will take a new track just to go out of its way and try to hit us and other organizations like us. But we’re not about to stop standing for our collective values.

We feel the pressure to simply “stop making trouble” during the legislative session. I’ve actually been told that! Many would have us quietly fade into the background until we’ve lost all our relevance and credibility.

That’s not going to happen.

We have testified and submitted written support or opposition on bills 41 times already this session. And that doesn’t include all the alerts, emails, discussions with legislators, etc. That is us protecting your values in the halls of Bismarck. We are trying to stop the train.

What can you do to help us stop the train? Two main things:

  1. Respond to our email and Facebook alerts to contact your Senators and Representatives on key bills. Doing this through our alert system truly takes less than a couple minutes and does make a difference. On one recent bill, each member of the Senate received over 100 emails from each of you. That’s 4,700 total emails that were sent out. Do you think that mattered? Absolutely.The key bill right now is HB1298, the Fairness in Girls’ Sports bill. If you haven’t already, take two minutes and please respond to our request for emails through our system.
  2. Please support our work. We receive no other financial help to do all this legislative work other than through your generous donations. Your financial support goes entirely to accomplish our work here in North Dakota, so please consider helping us out.

Whether you bury your head in the sand or not, the train trying to destroy the values you hold dear is well on its way and picking up speed, thanks to the Biden Administration and the resulting liberal arrogance it has ignited. Help us stop the train. It won’t be easy, but all our lives and those of the next generations are on the line.
